Stayed here at the weekend with my mum, we usually come a few times a year. It was pure luxury from the beginning. Had a delicious lunch when we got there and then we're shown to our room. We stayed in Neidpath and it has recently been refurbished. It is a beautiful room with lovely Molton Brown toiletries. Spa treatments...

Dear Guest, Thrilled to hear that you and your mum enjoyed all aspects of your most recent trip to Stobo Castle. The weekends do tend to be our busiest time and we usually run at full capacity however this shouldn't have a negative effect on your experience so we'll definitely keep a close eye on this. See you again soon!...

This is a truly special place! This was my third visit to Stobo. I really love the new addition of the outdoor hot tubs. The spa treatments were very relaxing, I even fell asleep during my facial! This visit was the busiest it has ever been when I have stayed here, which did make the treatments seem a bit rushed....

This is my 3rd time enjoying a 2 night stay at Stobo. The ambiance is catching & you soon fall into the "be relaxed" theme. Plenty of wonderfully delicious food. So pleased to see James who is a perfect gentleman & a legend. I note on previous reviews that some housekeeping issues could be improved, I would agree with this....

Having visited and enjoyed Stobo many times as a day visitor , my mum and I decided to have an overnight stay. We were not disappointed. We stayed in a room called Kinross which was lovely and had great views.. We had a showeroom in the turret with a tented ceiling again lovely. Loved the selection of Molton Brown toiletries....

Having been to Stobo many times over the last 10yrs we were slightly disappointed by the slipping standards. Food atmosphere and services were wonderful as usual but we noticed little things like cobwebs in the corners of the relaxation room (not so relaxing when you are terrified of spiders), also asked for an ice bucket to the room....called twice and...

As I write I am sitting in the Cashmere Suite in absolute comfort enjoying a glass of red wine. It is a luxurious suite and I am a great fan of Stobo. The food, as always, is excellent and James is an absolute gentleman. I don't know for how many years he has worked at Stobo but to me he...

Dear Guest, Many thanks for your very balanced review, following your recent stay in The Cashmere Suite. From the outset, I would like to apologise unreservedly for the lack of towels and dirty glass - there is absolutely no excuse for either of these lapses in standards and appropriate action will be taken.

We have just returned from spending 'Christmas at the Castle' and very much enjoyed our stay. There are many reviews here that describe the wonderful rooms, great spa and excellent service and we would certainly endorse all of that. So instead, I'll try to answer some of the questions we had before we went, which I hope others might find...

Dear Guest, Delighted to hear that, on the whole, you enjoyed your Christmas break at Stobo in the company of your family. Due to the nature and age of the building, all the bedrooms and bathrooms are different shapes and sizes - I do take your point that the bathroom in Graham, situated in a turret of the castle, is...

There is nowhere like Stobo. If you want to know what it really feels like to relax you need to stay the night here, or preferable two! I've been coming every year for 10 years with my sister-in-law, usually for one night but this year was even more delicious; two nights! We stayed in Oriental suite this time. The decoration...
