The tile grout needed to be addressed. There was a spider in the room and debris in the sink. The castle entry was gorgeous and the restaurant was delicious!

Loved it
Lovely castle/hotel in a beautiful location. Best with a car. Convenient to Roslyn Chapel and many other historic castles and abbeys. Bed was hard, and room a bit dated, but I would stay there again. Breakfasts was great, and dinner in their restaurant was really good. Service excellent.

Life in a Castle
Wonderful to stay in a castle that dated to the time of Mary, Queen of Scots. The historical information provided in the room was interesting and informative.

Scottish Castle - Not so much!
The hotel is in very secluded spot and the grounds were awesome to walk in and relax. The rooms were a bit old and not what you would expect when you book at a "Castle". Because I was at the end of the castle, the WiFi was barely perceptible. The ambiance it the hotel was nice. The experience started off badly. It took almost 30 minutes to check in, 20 minutes of those was waiting for a hotel person to come to the front desk (apparently there was only one person there and he was elsewhere in the hotel helping a guest), does not lend itself to a good impression. The hotel restaurant was nice, but way overpriced for the amount of food you received and the staff was slow and not very attentive. My brother came in after me and it took almost 20 minutes for them to be acknowledged, then several minutes for them to get their order taken. Unfortunately, because the hotel is secluded, unless you want to drive a bit, the restaurant is the only place to eat! Overall impression, Not Worth the Price! I will not stay there again, we visited other hotels on our trip that were much nicer (newer and more comfortable) for less cost.

Awful hotel!!!
The room and majority of the hotel were filthy and run-down. Large spiders crawled across the carpet which hadn't been vacuumed prior to our arrival. The beds were incredibly hard and uncomfortable. Furthermore, the staff failed to come through when we asked for a mattress topper or advice of any kind regarding the area. Do not stay!
