Just returned from a totally relaxing 2 night stay with 3 friends (only ever stayed for 1 night in previous visits) and can highly recommend the extra night as left feeling totally pampered and stress free. The staff so attentive and helpful, the facilities a treat to experience, hot tubs a great addition since my last visit. Treatments as usual...

We booked a Champagne afternoon tea for my birthday. We had to pay for it prior to the date which was a surprise. We arrived and politely led to the drawing room to wait to be seated which was fine, but it did give us the opportunity to observe poor decoration in the drawing room with a broken sash window...

Lovely spa day, fantastic setting, had two treatments which were both super. I had heard great things about Stobo so had very high expectations which perhaps explains a little of my hypercritical take. Found the overall atmosphere quite buzzy, so not as relaxing as hoped, a bit impersonal (therapists didn't make eye contact when introducing themselves) and a quite a...

From the beginning to the end of our visit, Stobo castle exceeded our expectations. It is immaculate with lovely decor in keeping with a historic castle that offers a beautiful modern spa.
