Our family of 4 stayed at this castle on our way from Edinburgh to London, and everyone enjoyed the visit! The kids loved the playroom and cinema, I thought the food was terrific, and my husband thoroughly enjoyed the self help bar. We read by the fire, strolled through the grounds, and chatted with some other visitors. I also picked... More

We stayed at Augill for one night on New Year's Day with our 12-year old son. We received a warm welcome on arrival and after a tour of the castle, settled down to a delicious afternoon tea accompanied by the resident cute old spaniel, Maisie! The castle is beautifully decorated throughout and really quirky with lovely little touches such as... More

Dear Nika Once again our staff justifiably get top billing for their relaxed nothing-too-much-trouble friendliness. Hot on their heels is Maisy who says 'not so much of the OLD please'. So glad you enjoyed your time with us. Best regards Simon, Wendy and our fabulous staff More

We stayed here for 2 nights with our 9-year-old and I think HE loved it more than we did. From the cinema to the games room to the suite (we stayed in the Orangery), it's luxurious while feeling totally comfortable. Dinner was fabulous -- all 3 of us enjoyed our meals. If you're looking for a unique experience with all... More

We stayed here with a 4 and 7 year old, and they just loved it, even more than us I think! We stayed in the Stable house so they had their own room and floor. We loved the way that we were allowed to explore and come and go as we pleased. The honesty bar is a really nice touch... More

An amazing place to stay. A must for families. Staff cannot do enough for you. We have stayed as a couple celebrating our wedding anniversary. It was perfect. We visited again with our son who was very impressed. It was exciting, relaxing, enjoyable. The food was fabulous. The bedrooms are classy, comfortable and as there are do many too choose... More

We returned a year after our winter wedding there to celebrate one year. All the memories came flooding back as we drove up to the castle. This place is magical, the setting, the welcome, the food, the decor, the rooms are luxurious and meticulously designed, and prepared, right down to the complementary ginger liquor. Nothing is a problem for Wendy,... More

We had an amazing time in Augill for my dad's 70th birthday. We were looking for low key luxury and we were certainly not disappointed. I was particularly impressed with how the staff, and especially Wendy herself, managed to be completely attentive without being intrusive in any way...that in itself made the stay incredibly relaxing and welcoming. The Castle is... More

I really don't want to write this review as I feel I am sharing a fantastic secret. My husband and I were lucky enough to spend a weekend at Augill and it was the best short break we have taken. The setting and building is breathtaking, the staff friendly and the mood of the hotel is relaxed. We were welcomed... More

Stayed in August as a mini-break honeymoon. I had some email correspondence with Wendy & Simon prior to the stay as some elements of the booking process were not 100% clear. They responded quickly and politely and so the booking was made. The castle itself was quite easy to find with SatNav, access is via single lane dirt driveway (rather... More

Dear Luci Thank you for your review. We're so pleased you had such a comfortable and enjoyable stay with us. Broadband here is not super fast and there is no prospect of it being we're afraid so we do the best with the service we have.
