Dalmunzie Castle
Reviewed 30 April 2014

I booked 2 nights at Dalmunzie Castle to celebrate my husband's birthday on a bed, breakfast and evening meal basis. I was hoping for something a little bit special and I definitely found it here. Our room was lovely - I had upgraded to a Four Poster room and we had fantastic views over the front garden and beyond. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The staff, particularly the waiter who served dinner both nights, were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. We took a walk both evenings in the area behind the castle and the scenery was just stunning. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here and I really hope to be able to go back.

Room Tip: Four poster room was lovely. We had the Winton room which had a gorgeous view to the front.

This is the perfect place to go if you want a relaxing break!
Upon arrival we were informed that we had been upgraded to a four poster room - gorgeous room with amazing views of the hills and golf course. Food was outstanding, we couldn't fault it, loved the unexpected touches - the strawberry sorbet was delicious! We wouldn't hesitate to come back or recommend to friends :)

We stumbled upon Dalmunzie Castle by chance when looking for somewhere special for our 21st wedding anniversary! It's a hidden gem of a place, about 30 minutes drive from the nearest town of Blairgowrie! Don't expect 5 star luxury with pool and spa..... this is a genuine sixteenth century castle that the owners are lovingly restoring from the bottom up. Yes, there is decorating still to be done but they have recently installed big flat screen televisions with Sky HD. The service was warm and welcoming, our tower room was huge, cosy and had a chilled bottle of bubbly and a chocolate bunny waiting for us (Easter weekend).
If you enjoy good food this is the place for you! We had a 5 course menu both nights and couldn't fault it. Delicious, well cooked and presented! What more could you ask for! Would we go back? In a heartbeat! Would we recommend it? Already have done!

Room Tip: We had The MacKintosh Tower room which was huge and had great views from all seven windows!

The hotel sits on fabulous grounds overlooking the golf course. We only had one night, and wish we could have stayed for a number of days. The house is old and nothing flash, but it sits high on the hill and the rooms were great. We had a number of rooms including a turret room which meant we could basically have a couple of interconnecting rooms for the kids. The master bed room was huge. We had a game of golf while we were there, which was great fun and the views back to the hotel with the mountains in the background were fine. The highlight for us was the restaurant, it was small, had a great atmosphere, and the food was spectacular. The hotel is fit for something special and a bit different and less for people wanting something self contained and 24 hour room service. A memorable stay with fond memories.

Room Tip: There is a variety of rooms that are all a bit different, so best call the hotel and discuss. We l...

This was our 3rd stay at Dalmunzie, having got married there in 2012. As always, we were made to feel so welcome and at home and were upgraded to one of the best rooms in the hotel. We had such a relaxing time, beautiful food and wine. The new furniture and log burners in the lounge are lovely. You can see that the new owners are making small changes gradually. It really is a very special place and we look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Stewart room is a four poster room with views to the front and side.

Been there has been a gorgeous experience. We loved it so much. It made our anniversary such a wonderful magic moment. The dinner has been a wonderful experience and the chef is one of the best we ever tried. We advice it a lot!

Stayed here during January and first impression was okay and the location is great if the weather is kind to you. Room was cold and fairly bland and the hotel in general is quite tired. Firstly the manager was verging on rude when we merely asked to reserve a table and in general he seemed to be more in the background rather then welcoming customers. The rest of the staff were very pleasant but the manager needs some training in how to deal with the general public. The food was okay but nothing like as good as we were expecting and had to wait some time to get served and the bar area is small and not very welcoming.
All in all I have stayed in far better country house hotels and this place needs a manager who can actually deal with customers and greatly improve the whole experience.

Thank you for your review, we are some what mystified that your stay was such a poor one from your review and would be happy to discuss should you wish to. The hotel is going through a plan of refurbishment over the next 12 months and we have already re-carpeted half of the rooms and redecorated them. As for your comments regarding the manager we would like to discuss this matter.
