Great overnight DBB stay here.
Everything was perfect from lovely Christmas decorations cosy log fires to the amazing dinner and lovely breakfast in the morning.
Managed a walk after breakfast as was raining on our arrival previous day would be lovely in the summertime.
Highly recommend for a special occasion 😁👍

Can't praise this gem of a place high enough. House beautiful, staff fantastic and attentive, food delicious. Grounds are lovely for walking even in February. Warm cosy atmosphere throughout the house with a lovely history. Leisure facilities an added bonus.

Room tip: Remember the pool has to be booked in advance.

From our arrival to our departure our experience was literally perfect!
On arrival we were given a tour of the hotel before being shown to our room for the evening (Lochnagar suite). The cosy sitting room features comfortable seating, tv, complimentary mini bar, workstation, storage and a beautifully written welcome guide along with a history of the property and the MacRobert Trust. The bathroom has a luxuriously deep bath with overhead rainfall and standard shower heads. There are multiple lighting options which are perfect for us girls, lovely towels, toiletries and underfloor heating. The bedroom again has an abundance of storage options, full length mirror, tv, bedside tables with sockets & usb points and a wonderfully comfortable bed. When I say they have thought of everything….they genuinely have!
We were served tea, coffee & cake in the piano room mid afternoon which was a really nice touch. Cocktails from the bar are lovely, the staff are very knowledgable and passionate about the ingredients and where they are produced. As part of our package we had a reservation for the tasting menu with wine pairings which is served in the library. The food, wine and service were amazing! The thoughtfulness shown to our dietary requirements far exceeded our expectations. Breakfast is served in the beautiful conservatory. There’s an extensive offering with continental, full breakfast and lighter options.
We took advantage of the onsite health club and went for a post breakfast swim & sauna. The facilities are fantastic and very clean.
Douneside have perfected the definition of hospitality. The staff are what makes this hotel and their pride in their roles emanates around the resort. I hope they are all very proud at the standard they set!
We cannot wait to return in the near future.

Room tip: Make the reservation….you’ll be glad you did!

I attended my nieces wedding this month in Douneside House Hotel. The situation was marvellous, the hotel lovely, room and bed extremely comfortable but I think the secret weapon of the hotel is its staff. Behind scenes, waiting staff and front of house were unfailingly friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much to ask and they ensured a great time had by all. So thank you to you a!!. Merry Christmas

Douneside has a unique history and offers guests a unique experience set amidst beautiful countryside. Country house style with a touch of old style Officers Mess, five star standard of furnishings in bed and public rooms, open log fires, one room lined with Harris Tweed. The food is cuisine not simply ‘food’ enormous thought and skill put into the presentation of every dish, most created from local produce. The excellent swimming pool, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and gym more than matching the best of country clubs. The finest recommendation for any hotel is its staff, Douneside staff are exemplary in every way, warm and welcoming, highly professional …..strongly recommended.
