Scotland's premier destination spa - Stobo

Hi Everyone, 

How are you all today? 

I and my husband were invited to stay at the amazing We were booked for dinner, breakfast and lunch and treatment in a deluxe room.

The castle its self is stunning. You drive up a long driveway and as you reach the entrance you are overwhelmed with the beauty of the building. 

We checked in at 3pm. The reception staff are lovely and super welcoming. She explains where everything is and what the etiquette is. Super casual during the day. Most guests wear their robes around the hotel and spa. You must dress for dinner. But you can wear your robes to lunch and dinner and most guests did.

The ceiling on the way to our room was divine.

We were in The Lennox Room. Which is to die for opulent. This is a deluxe category room. The room is perfect in every way from the amazing vintage furniture to the gorgeous couch. 

tea and coffee set up in stobo
Plenty of coffee and teas are ready and waiting. I love that it is the loose leave tea bag.
Who doesn't love a wee shortbread?

How gorgeous is this dresser?

In the antique wardrobe are your comfy robes and slippers. What I love about Stobo is the attention to detail. One of the robes had bigger slippers for my husband. There is no way my husband feet would have fitted in the ones for mine. It just shows they think about who is staying in the room and make that extra effort. 

You get a little personalised welcome letter with your key.  explaining dining times, what time your treatment is and other bits of information about the hotel. 
brown sofa in lennox room
This was my husband favourite part of the room. 
This sofa is so comfy. The TV is on a swivel stand so you can watch on the sofa or the beds. Again just the thought that Stobo has put into this little thing But this makes you stay so much nicer.

Now The bathroom for me can make or break a hotel room. If you are going for a luxury break you expect a really nice bathroom with a nice selection of toiletries. 
Stobo does not disappoint. 
The marble bathroom is roomy and has a super lux feeling to it. I love the little touches in Stobo like on the taps it says So Stobo. Which is the hotel's Motto? It all just feels put together.

 After checking in we went to check out the hotel and see what we would like to do. There is a drawing room where fruit and tea and coffee are available Along with the days papers. Very relaxed feeling in this room which is lovely. This is also where you can find the fitness class schedule.

We didn't get the chance to take part in the classes but I would try them when we go back. 
I would recommend doing two night at Stobo to get the most out of your stay. There is a lovely bright studio room for all the classes. 

We got our bearings and It was time to get ready to get to the spa. blonde woman in white stobo robe in front of huge window with grass in backgroundwoman posing in white fluffy robe in stobo house

The walk to the spa is so nice. I loved this japanise inspired display. Stobo has a Japanese garden which I really wanted to see but as you can see from the photos there was a lot of snow. I will see it next time.

This is the lounge area where you wait for your treatments or have a coffee from the coffee and juice bar. Stunning.

japainse toilet
This area also has the most advanced toilet I have ever been in in my life. 
It's worth going just to check this out. It was an experience that is for sure. 

stunning swimming pool with infinity pool
The pool is stunning it is spectacular and overlooks the mountains and grounds of Stobo. I didn't take photos in the spa area as there were people around and I don't feel comfortable doing this. 
There are a mixed sauna and steam rooms. In the pool area and the hydro pool. 
The hydro pool is amazing It was my husband favourite. It has all different sections from underwater beds to lie on and have a jet massage to a very strong jet stream massage. It was heaven. 

There is a lovely relaxation room with ambient lighting and lovely lounge beds to lie and relax whilst listening to lovely relaxing music. 

There are so many different spa experiences in Stobo it is hard to do them all. There is also dedicated ladies facilities This has some lovely features. 
The Laconium is a nice mellow heat. There is a steam room with essential oils and crystals. There are two expense showers that have a range of awesome features like tropical-like showing in tropical rain. Last but not least is the ice fountain. You use the ice provided to stimulate your skin. I loved this. It leaves your skins tingling and firmer.

Last but not least my favourite part of the spa. The outdoor hot tubs. These are something special. 
there it was snowing and we were surrounded by fairy light it hot bubbling water. This is relaxation to perfection. You can watch the rabbits running around on the lawn as you sit and enjoy the hot tub. BLISS. There is something magical about these hot tubs. 

I am going to do a separate post on all the food we enjoyed at Stobo. So check back in for that. 

Our treatments were on our check out day at 10am. If I was to make one recommendation. It would be to organise your treatments the day of arrival. We both enjoyed a full body massage. The treatment rooms are gorgeous. I had a lovely full body massage. Being a massage therapist myself I am hard to please but this was a great treatment. My therapist was super friendly and polite and made the whole experience even better. Nothing was to much hassle. 

Stobo is a big hotel with a luxury family run feel. Nothing is to much hassle. The staff here are an asset to the hotel. From the cleaners to the wait staff. They all work super hard to make your stay as special as possible and my goodness do they do it. The hotel is super clean and tidy. The garden is immaculate. The food is world class and I think you would struggle to find a better destination spa in the UK. You are surrounded by the hills and vast gardens of Stobo if you are looking for the ultimate in luxury hotels look no further.
