Our review

You could be forgiven for thinking that you were miles away from a city, yet within 8 miles is the City of Edinburgh.

This 13th century castle holding the title, ‘Scotland’s Oldest Inhabited Castle’ has a fabulous location nestling in woodlands and on the bank of the River Esk. A real sense of arrival greets you from the moment you drive up the magnificent driveway and enter the breath taking what is now the lobby the hotel with the grandiose double staircase leading to the Quarterdeck built for a previous resident Admiral.

The walls and corridors are adorned with magnificent historical hangings and artwork that will bring the past of this unique property, some 850 years old, to life. You can almost forget you are staying in a hotel!

Before dinner relax with a soothing multi-massage jet in the hydro pool, or take an Ottoman steam bath or one of the many Spa treatments on offer, meet other guests in the Library or find an intimate corner in the Dalwolsey for an aperitif. The warm and welcoming team will serve you at the table before escorting you to the relaxed Orangery for dinner or the Fine Dining 2 Rosette Dungeon Restaurant.

The food is top class, Head Chef, Francoise Guaird, pays respect to ‘Local Heroes’ who supply the larder to the kitchens locally sourced wherever. This enthusiasm and acknowledgement extends to the owners who also have recommendations relating to specific wines and menu items.

Dalhousie Castle – Hotel and Aqueous Spa is a unique destination close enough to Edinburgh and set in magnificent countryside is a fabulous place to stay either on business or pleasure.
