Another wonderful visit to stobo just tarnished with my robe not being big enough to be comfortable in . Being a larger lady this isn't acceptable . I asked for a larger robe and the staff brought one emediatly . But this still wasn't big enough , I asked again and had to go back to the room to get...

Dear Guest, Delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your time at Stobo but I fully take on board your issue with the size of the robes available. We do have a limited number of each size and, as you correctly point out, your preferred size may all have been in use at the time of your visit. May I...

Recently had a day visit as a birthday present. Lovely day and new ladies room and relax area both fabulous. Only complaint was number of people using mobiles, always hoped Stobo wouldn't allow this and have a totally relaxed environment but lots of people on phones. Lunch spoiled by phone ringing followed by loud conversation, for me such a shame.

Dear Guest, Many thanks for taking the time to review your experience of your recent spa day at Stobo. Your comments regarding the use of mobile phones are completely justified - perhaps our staff could be more proactive in ensuring a peaceful ambience is maintained at all times.

I've been visiting Stobo for the best part of 15+ years. When I first visited the pool was still in the basement with one small sauna and very 'healthy' food on the menu! I've watched it grow and mature and I absolutely adore the place. I even had my hen weekend here two years ago! After 15+ visits I'm now...

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your very supportive review and, indeed, for your custom over all these years. The weekend supplements were introduced to encourage guests to join us mid-week instead when we tend to be a little quieter, however I fully take your point that this option is not possible for everyone. I was delighted to hear...

Incredible first time at Stobo, could not have come away happier and more relaxed than I did. The surroundings are incredible, the spa was amazing, however the thing that surprised me the most out of it all was the FOOD. It was excellent and really adds to the whole experience. Can't wait to go back

Having just returned from a 1 night stay at Stobo I am already missing the relaxed atmosphere. I loved how everyone wore their robes around the place throughout the day, it was so relaxing. The positives definitely outweigh the negatives. The building was immaculate, the rooms (we stayed in park lodge) were beautiful and the living area gave that special...
