Dalhousie Castle

Dalhousie Castle Hotel has scooped the titles for Best Castle Hotel and Best Fine Dining Restaurant Hotel in the 2017 Scottish Hotel Awards Regional Finals.

Now in their 14th year, Scotland’s prestigious awards scheme celebrates excellence in hospitality and identifies businesses that consistently provide outstanding service to their guests. Through a thorough annual assessment process in which, participating hotels are visited twice, the scheme highlights businesses who not only possess a confidence in their offering, but also a desire to become even better.

Newly-appointed general manager James Little said: “We are delighted to have been awarded regional winners for these categories. It’s fantastic for our team to have been recognised for the phenomenal efforts that went into what was a very busy 2016. We are especially pleased to have been selected best in class for our fine dining Dungeon Restaurant. We are passionate about our local Scottish produce, there’s nothing quite like it. This is borne out, in the exceptional cuisine created by our talented team of chefs. We shall look forward to seeing what the grand finals hold for us!”

The ‘best in class’ regional winners will be evaluated against all category winners and the final national winners will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held in Glasgow on April 23.

Dalhousie Castle & Aqueous Spa is part of the private portfolio of luxury boutique hotels known as the Robert Parker Collection. The 13th century castle holds the title of the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland. It has 35 bedrooms, a fully equipped spa and caters for weddings and events as well as for leisure and spa breaks.
