Where do I start, What can I say, We had a wedding weekend at Glenapp at the start of October and stayed at Glenapp with 31 friends and family who were on a mystery tour. We adopted the hotel as our weekend house and it was beyond anything we could have hoped for. Our guests, 3 weeks later are still... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a 2 night stay. This hotel has cracked it, it is just perfect, the wonderful welcome, the splendid public rooms and bedrooms, the beautifully prepared food and the truly professional level of customer service. Glenapp Castle sets the standards for others to follow!

For our 55th wedding anniversary we wanted something special.Glenapp Castle proved to be a good choice.On arrival we were met by 5 members of staff & the welcome carried on throughout our stay.The gardens are very good & there's a nice 5to6 K walk down an adjacent glen.The food was very good.

My husband and I decided to stay at Glenapp Castle on our way to the West Highlands as on the next day we were to pick up our friends from the Glasgow airport. Little did we know that our journey up to the hotel would take eighteen hours and not the customary seven, due to various fatalities on the motorway.... More

Just back from a fantastic stay at Glenapp Castle in beautiful Ayrshire. Celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary and what a great choice of hotel in which to celebrate. From arriving at the front door with waiting staff at hand to the fine dining and excellent overall attention - the senior management & staff made us feel special but still very... More

We'd chosen Glenapp Castle as a stop-off point for a short two day sojourn in Scotland between motoring trips to Ireland and Northumberland. It's ideally located for the Cairnryan ferry port but you'd never know it was there from the road and we missed the turnoff even with the directions helpfully supplied. Even this had its upside as a short... More

The staff were most helpful and courteous and the setting is first rate with splendid views over the gardens and out to Ailsa Craig. The menu is 6 courses, with... More

My mother's one requirement during our UK trip was to stay in a castle. Our travel advisor recommended Glenapp and she was spot on. The castle is lovely as are the grounds and the staff. We had a fantastic time exploring the area and coming home to Glenapp in the afternoons was a pleasure. We were always greeted by a... More

The manor sits in isolated splendour in the middle of 36 acres of delightful gardens in turn within 200+ acres of woodland. The drive from the electric gates to the courtyard is almost a mile of woodlands opening out into beautifully maintained gardens. Our room was huge, as was the dressing room and the massive bathroom. From our widow, we... More
