Back when the Borders was the Scottish equivalent of the Wild West, it wasn’t unusual for Comlongon Castle to have a couple of kidnapped guests in the dungeon.
Their ransom would be paid in sheep or cattle.
These days, guests at the Dumfries and Galloway hotel are much more willing visitors – most of whom prefer to use a credit card to settle their bills.
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.
It is also very conveniently located: only 20 minutes from Carlisle and less than two hours from Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Available seven days a week, with supplements for Friday and Saturday night stays, this Big Deal is for two people to enjoy an overnight break in any double room or suite at Comlongon. Rooms are dependent on availability.
The offer includes a full Scottish breakfast and, as well as locally sourced, handmade chocolates, there will be a bottle of chilled Prosecco in your room on arrival – the perfect way to start your getaway.
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.

You may also opt to sample the fine local produce on the dinner menus. There is a choice of two elegant, period décor restaurants, with seasonal menus that change daily to reflect the availability of the finest ingredients.

‘A lovely relaxed mini break. We had a lovely stay at Comlongon Castle… We had a large family room (very clean) and enjoyed an evening meal and breakfast. It was great value for money and the staff were helpful and friendly. The grounds are beautiful and we all enjoyed the three mile walk with the dogs. We look forward to visiting again.’
‘First class. Super location, hotel and room first class. Food excellent. The castle was amazing, will stay again. We had a suite with four poster bed, just could not fault it. Ideal location for weddings… superb gardens.’
