My boyfriend surprised me with a 1-night stay at Dalhousie Castle in mid-April '06 (during a long weekend away in Edinburgh). Little did I know he was planning to propose!
We had a fantastic room, really spacious, amazing view, lovely clean bathroon and huge bed - sadly I'm not the fittest person and it was right at the very top of the hotel so quite a tiring trek up there!
Boyfriend also arranged for me to visit the Spa before our meal and as it was quite late in the day I had it all to myself - pure luxury!
Dinner was in the Dungeon (oh after pre-dinner drinks in the library bar), food was amazing and then came the RING!!! I was so surprised, and cried for 10mins before I said yes!
After spending a FAB night getting drunk in the 24hr bar, we left the hotel the next morning (can't comment too much on breakfast, my stomach wasn't doing too well!), wedding brochure in hand and called 2-days later to book our wedding there... We're getting married in Oct '07 and I can't wait!!!
I can't recommend this hotel enough, its fantastic, you will not be disappointed. We look forward to going back very soon!!!
