My husband and I got married here on 24th April 2011 (took a while to get on here!!) and without a doubt it was the best day of my life. We googled "Scottish Castle Wedding Venues" and this was the one and only venue we looked at, saw it, visited it, loved it and booked it. From booking it to...

Dear Reviewer, Many thanks for these comments and my apologies for the late response. As some will have noted we are slowly transforming the hotel from a mainly wedding venue into a venue that more folk can enjoy. This is taking time, some restructuring and a certain amount of staff training. We have for the last 30 years built up...

My Husband and I got married at the castle on 20th June 2011, the staff were very helpful with all arrangements before the wedding and helped everything run smoothly on the day. We were lucky enough to have the first dry sunny and warm day in 3 months so were able to have the ceremony outside. The piper was brilliant...

Dear reviewer, Thank you for these comments. As most who look at reviews before booking, as I do, reviews do form a very important part of the decision process before one commits to a hotel, place or location. It goes without question that we try our hardest to deliver what clients want. That is the very least we can do....

Dear Reviewer. Thank you for this review. What can I say? We do everything we can to ensure the very best is delivered, which to be honest is not particularly challenging. When customers take the time to give their appraisal it makes us aware we are doing something right. Thank you. Phillip Comlongon Castle

Fantastic place, what a setting for a wedding. From turning off the main road onto tree lined drive and the stunning view of the castle, amazing.

Dear Reviewer. Thank you for these comments. We try hard to deliver something very special here, which most folks do recognize. Our menu system is quite unusual, allowing guests to choose their options on the day-I am still amazed that this is not an industry standard..We constantly drive the business forward, looking at what works and where we can improve....

Wow. What a day my new Wife and I had at Comlongon castle on 15th June. Philip and his staff were wonderful and helpful throughout the day. The wedding ceremony took place in the great hall.

Dear Reviewer, thank you for this detailed post. After performing weddings, celebrations and parties for over 25 years we have built up an unparalleled reputation in Scotland and beyond. Strangely with this reputation comes a misunderstanding that although we offer 5-star facilities, we will charge 5-star prices. This is not the case. Once you visit and realise we are often...

Being a tour guide at Scone Palace it was my business to know that Comlongon Castle was once the property of the Earl of Mansfield.

Dear Reviewer, this particular post gives me great pleasure. As most who visit here realise I am passionate about Comlongon Castle and have spent a great deal of time restoring the place over the last 25 years. The connections between Scone Palace and Comlongon are historic. Comlongon was at some time a very important home of the Murrays and has...

We were booked here as part of a tour and found it quite special. We had an enormous room and bath, decorated in over-the-top "castle" decor and were most comfortable.

Dear Reviewer, thank you. It is rewarding when we receive a compliment from a client that has enjoyed our hospitality other than a wedding. I realise most reviews here relate to weddings or celebrations, but once you have been here you will realise we are far more than a wedding venue.
