Disappointing

Posted Apr 20, 2015
Was looking forward to this 'castle' stay. We stood for ten minutes waiting for staff to appear to check in. Smoke from fireplace in lobby permeated the building and was unpleasant. Furniture, fittings and bedding were old and worn. It is an old castle but for the room rate we expected better than this. Does not compare well to other B&Bs we stayed at.

What a place!!

Posted Apr 19, 2015
Whatever negative comments you've read on here IGNORE!!!! Yea the rooms are a little tired but the place is a castle not a 5* hotel! The room is equipped with everything you need, iron, TV, bath/shower, comfortable clean beds and wifi. If you want much more than that then stay in one of the generic chain hotels. The staff are fantastic, I was shown to my room which was great and even offered assistance with my 1 bag! The food is great, home cooked with generous sizes and very reasonable prices with a choice of bar or restaurant. I chose the bar because I prefer a pie and chips! We was asked if we wanted to go on the ghost tour and we did. No, it's not one of these daft things where you're told of scary takes and edgy words while waiting for someone to shout BOO but a very enthusiastic assistant manager so proud of the castle that he shares history, stories from previous paranormal investigations done by actual investigators and you visit every grand room. If you want photos then you are free to go back to any of the rooms after. You are also given an information pack afterwards with the history of the families who previously lived there. In the morning we had breakfast which was hearty and very enjoyable then went to the castles small museum for a quick look. Again we were lucky enough to be taken by the assistant manager who talked us through the artefacts and shared yet more history. Please, please stay and enjoy it for what it is!

Up a steep hill.

Posted Apr 8, 2015
Pros: Staff and breakfast.
Cons: Needs things like new beds and new decor.
Location: It was up a steep hill so would be fine for people that enjoyed walking and ghosts.
Up a steep hill, hotel was fine, staff very friendly. didn't realise when I booked it that it has some unexpected happenings. We did the ghost tour which was very good and very interesting. It was value for money and breakfast was very good but I wouldn't stay again

Hôtel avec du charme

Posted Mar 29, 2015
Hôtel dans la ville on s'attend à être isolé mais ce n'est pas le cas. Pas grand chose à faire à Dingwall mais une escale sympathique quand on visite le nord de l'Ecosse. Un bon rapport qualité prix.

Charming Castle

Posted Feb 25, 2015
Enjoyed staying at the Castle but wish that the decor would fit the time period ie., picture in the room was too modern. Also room needs some repairs. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Would stay again in future.

correct un peu décevant

Établissement bien situé et atypique mais la chambre que nous avons eu était loin d'être glamour vue sur les poubelles trop petites... Rapport qualité prix à revoir

EXCELLENT all round

Posted Dec 13, 2014
Pros: The food in the Bar was EXCELLENT
Location: Dingwall town centre was litterally minutes away
The food in the Bar was EXCELLENT. Very relaxing atmosphere. We had our 3 year old daughter with us & the staff couldn't have done enough for us. Spacious room & comfortable beds. It was lovely to sit around the open fire. Plenty of parking available. Quiet location but not far (minutes) from Dingwall town centre. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Will definately stay there again when we're in the area.
