Everywhere is very clean and well maintained. As a larger lady I was a little nervous about the idea of a spa hotel and spending the day in a bathrobe but I needn't have...

First time at Stobo in May and it exceeded expectations. From the initial welcome at check-in, to the checkout, everything was relaxed and flawless. The hotel is beautifully maintained and the walks in the surrounding area are worth doing as it's so peaceful and tranquil. The staff were delightful, always smiling, attentive and helpful. The food is excellent, served quickly...

I love going to Stobo. Go yearly and so enjoy our time there. Pool and exercise classes so good and treatments excellent. Food excellent and lovely staff. Complimentary car wash a nice touch. Could do with a fridge in the room.

I come here every year with my mum and Stobo never fails us. The staff are amazing, friendly and efficient. The hotel is stunning and always spotless. The food is delicious-especially the rice pudding-and served quickly and with a smile! Treatments are always brilliant and the spa facilities are fantastic.
