Back in the bad old days, a few hundred years back, it wasn’t unusual for Comlongon Castle to have a couple of kidnapped guests in the dungeon.
These days, guests at the Dumfries and Galloway hotel are much more willing visitors.
Near Gretna, Comlongon Castle is a beautifully restored, 15th century Scottish castle with a luxurious baronial hotel.
Boasting a Great Hall, fantastic displays of armour and weapons, open fires and gorgeous landscaped gardens, it is a stunning location for a tranquil getaway.
Available seven days a week, option one of this Big Deal is for two people to enjoy an overnight break in an opulent double room at Comlongon.
Option two is for two nights and includes a two course dinner from the a la carte menu in one of the hotel’s two, wood panelled restaurants. Guests can choose which night they wish to have dinner on.
Both options include a full Scottish breakfast and a bottle of chilled Prosecco in your room on arrival – the perfect way to start your getaway.
Option two also includes a two course dinner from the a la carte menu in one of the hotel’s two, wood panelled restaurants.
Medieval meets modern day
Steeped in Scottish Border history, Comlongon Castle has fourteen, luxury, en-suite bedrooms which blend Medieval atmosphere and modern comfort.
All rooms are individually themed and feature tea and coffee making facilities, Freeview TV and ironing facilities. The hotel has free Wi-Fi.

The chefs change the menus daily depending on the best local produce available.
At the time of writing, Comlongon Castle has just over 380 TripAdvisor reviews of which 355 are ‘Excellent’ or ‘Very good’. This is what a recent reviewer had to say:
‘Perfect break in lovely setting. Our break at the castle was truly special and the staff were fabulous. From the moment we arrived, we were given excellent service by all the staff. Our room was lovely and clean with views of the gardens… evening meal was excellent as was the full Scottish breakfast. This place is great value for money but what makes it is the location and great service provided. Well recommended.’
