We wanted to experience castle living while on our vacation to Edinburgh and this was the perfect place for this type of quick experience getaway. We were only there for a night but the room was meticulously appointed and very authentic feeling... complete with a beautiful fireplace and mantle, wooden shutters and a canopied bed. It was certainly romantic and had that historical touch, maybe even a little spooky. The bathroom was all recently renovated and clean!
The spa was very comfortable, small but not too populated so the small quarters really weren't an issue. They have a couple different pools and steam/sauna rooms, as well as a very relaxing lounging sun room that overlooks the beautiful greenery surrounding the castle.
One of the highlights was having drinks in the library next to the roaring fire, followed by dinner in the dungeon. The food was surprisingly good (we weren't expecting much). The experience of the whole evening was perfect for a romantic getaway.
All in all a comfortable "experience" stay but nothing exceeded expectations drastically.
