“very good hotel away from the city”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

My and I spent a long weekend at the Dalmahoy Country Club in mid October 2013. This turned out to be extremely relaxing. We spent a lot of time at the hotel using the facilities and just sitting in lounges reading or chatting. The gym is well equiped and the pool a good size, there is also ample area to go for walks. Edinburgh is only about 6 miles away so reasonably close for a quick visit each day. We dined at the hotel each evening as the choice was first class and the staff brilliant. it is almost 20 years since we stayed here last (when our son was in a high chair). We agreed that it won't be 20 years before our next visit.

Was at dalmahoy today and played the west course. I was surprised how well the course is playing for this time of year. The greens are in excellent condition. There is some work getting done on this course only to make it better. Went to into shop and bar after very friendly staff. Would recommend this course to anyone looking for a great day out.

Not the first time I've been here and every time I've been it is for a conference. As a hotel it's great. The rooms are very comfortable as you come to expect for a Marriott. The food is good but what I noticed most of all was the friendly and excellent service the staff gave. As a county club it's got it all including a great golf course. As for the conference facilities they were very good as well. Looking forward to coming back soon.

Visited here on a business trip. Everything about the place is superb. Lovely grounds, decor and large spacious rooms. Food of an excellent standard and probably the finishing touch would be the staff. Everyone smiling, helpful and professional throughout. Hope to return for leisure trip soon.

We booked the hotel to use up some Tesco vouchers not really knowing what we were booking but just wanting to go to Edinburgh.
First impressions were great the reception block is a beautiful old building as shown in most photos of the hotel. When we got in the staff were very attentive. They were offering sample snacks so we tried some while we waited to check in. they were very nice and they gave us some to take up to the room. Not a long wait to book in as 3 very efficient staff members were on duty. They offered to take our bags to the room but we didn’t need assistance which was good.
Room was lovely very clean and well equipped.
The hotel is big and spread out so perhaps you should mention when booking if you have mobility issues so you are not put too far away.
We had an evening meal at the hotel 1 night which was lovely but not cheap.
Breakfast was brilliant, everything you could ask for in a nice setting overlooking the golf course.
Staff in the restaurant are all very attentive but not over bearing, they just seem to be there when you want them.
We didn’t try the leisure facilities or the golf course but did have a look around and both seem excellent.
The location is good just on the edge of the city and on a good bus link if you don’t want to take the car in to Edinburgh. Park and Ride 3miles away at £3.50 per person which last all day multi use on the companies busses and parking is free.
To summarise the hotel is lovely well worth 4 stars. The price is not cheap but it is value for money.
As a tip if you do want a cheaper meal, across the road from the hotel is Ratho Park which is part of the Crown Carveries group so good cheap honest carvery food.

I was on a trip to Livingston, and this property was close by my destination. I was swept of my feet by the hotel appearance, and old castle. Rooms are comfortable and staff is friendly.
Nice on site pub, and there was a large restaurant and recreational activities (which I did not try).
Would want to come back for leisure one day.

Well presented rooms and restaurant. Food of a good standard. A long way from reception to bedrooms, including a number of stairs - beware! Overall a good venue for a family break just out of the city.
