Excellent hotel for golfers

Posted Jul 11, 2014
This hotel sits in beautiful grounds which include two excellent golf courses. If I still played golf I might have rated it as 5 overall ! The hotel is a graceful old country house with a modern bedroom block and leisure club attached. We were there for only one night and did not use most of the facilities. Our only meal was breakfast in a well appointed dining room from which you could see the 18th hole of one of the golf courses. You could eat (or drink) on a patio next to the 18th green. In atmosphere it was one of the most relaxing hotels we have been in. There were plenty of staff and all were unfailingly courteous and could not have been more helpful. There was absolutely none of the faint disdain and disapproval which one can sometimes encounter in top class hotels of this nature. The hotel is North West of Edinburgh near to the huge Gyle shopping mall, park and ride and tram depot. However, staff encouraged us to leave our car in the hotel car park whilst we went to Edinburgh for the day. A taxi to and from Edinburgh was £12-15 depending on the time of day. Overall, this was much more relaxing than staying in a city centre hotel, almost like having two holidays in one!

At Dalmahoy for family wedding

Posted Jun 7, 2014
Pros: see paragraph above
Cons: see first paragraph
Location: wonderful gardens, trees, walks, sense of being private, not in the middle of a city, even though central Edinburgh is not far.
Excellent service from helpful and charming staff, bathrooms in rooms for disabled are a bit institutional - could they be a bit more elegant? Place to put makeup near sink? A chair? pity that wheelchairs left in hallways were moved - we finally caught on and kept wheelchair in room. Long way to walk for someone who is pushing a wheelchair or for someone who can walk, but has difficulties. Needed to be as close as possible to function rooms. Excellent dinner at reception, good breakfasts, nice walks, great bar, inviting public spaces, nice views, gardens, just a lot of hallways and spaces to navigate when somewhat disabled. Everyone very helpful though.... very warm welcome from gentleman at the front door - not fussy, "over service", which was nice.

Weekend away

Posted Feb 18, 2014
Pros: The location, the decor.the history, in fact everything.
Cons: Lower bar prices and maybe more variety of bottled beer.
Location: Edinburgh was brilliant and the park and ride service a great idea.
The hotel and staff were fabulous, the only criticism is having to pay for wi,fi. Nothing was to much trouble and the staff were very professional and the surroundings superb .

The Best Weekend! Fantastic Place To Stay

Posted Feb 17, 2014
Pros: Well mannered, friendly and helpful staff The hotel is a Castle! The Horses driving through to the hotel The pool area Comfortable bed The views
Cons: Making the directions to the bedroom more clearly - we got lost in the first lift but asked for help from the kind staff. Defusers on the hairdryers
Location: Nice and quiet out the way, but only 20mins taxi ride into the city for nightlife and touristing. Edinburgh Zoo isnt too far away from the hotel.
Never visited a place so polite, happy and welcoming. A nice drive through the Golf course towards the hotel, we approached the 'Castle' and were blown away! Wow! Couldn't recommend this place enough, if your wanting to impress this is the place to visit! Staff are so friendly and welcoming, opening doors, requesting their services for luggage, taxi calls information etc. Beautiful cocktails in the bar although its very quiet and relaxing so if your after anything more lively its a taxi into the city 20mins max. The pool, sauna and steam room area was great, as we swam we could watch it snowing outside. The changing facilities were very clean as were our bedrooms and the rest of the hotel. Our room had a queen size bed (so comfortable), big flat screen TV, bathroom was large and modern. Around the hotel is fruit bowls, biscuits, hot drinks, chocolate fountains with fruit etc to help yourself to. Struggling to fault this hotel and service it provides. Would not think twice about booking this hotel again, just a shame we only stayed 2 nights, been home nearly 2 days with holiday blues! Thank you Dalmahoy for enabling our valentines weekend to be as memorable and perfect as it was, we will definitely be seeing you again soon!

Good hotel close to Edinburgh

Posted Feb 10, 2014
Pros: Cheerful and helpful staff providing excellent service.
We stayed for the night after the Calcutta Cup when Edinburgh was exceedingly busy. The hotel was full but the service excellent. The only slightly adverse comment would be that it was a long long walk from reception to our room. However considering the size of the hotel this was not a big problem.
