My wife and I spent two nights at Glenapp, staying in the palatial "Earl Inchcape" room, which is bigger than some houses. The staff, ambiance, food, castle and grounds were magnificent. A lovely quiet stay, with all staff members treating us like royalty. For us it was more 6 star than 5. Thank you.

Enjoyed the beautiful castle and even more beautiful grounds with gorgeous views. Very attentive staff anticipated needs. Gourmet dinner was outstanding and included in the stay. Very quiet and peaceful. Even on a short visit, we felt that we were treated with individual attention by the staff and owners. Be sure to look for the emailed directions before driving to... More

This is a beautiful property with magnificent staff. The drive to Glenapp is picturesque, and the gardens elegant. I would recommend walking around the grounds, seeing the hidden garden and the remnants of the estate. The Glen Hike is well worth doing although wear good hiking shoes. Our room was magnificent. Traditional but updated. Large bathroom and new fixtures. The... More

My wife and stayed here as a treat to ourselves. It was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Met in the car park by a member of staff to take our luggage to our room to begin with. A luxurious room overlooking the gardens. We spent a relaxing afternoon reading in the large library, whilst enjoying a glass of... More

One of the top hotels we have stayed in; ever. Really involved staff, suburb location, delicious food, relaxing grounds ................ You need to be careful to follow the instructions as Satnavs do not know it and using the intercom to get into the grounds is a little strange. But when you do it you realise that this is probably part... More

We deeply enjoyed the two nights we have spent at the Castle. From the warm welcome at check in to the excellent food and accommodations, our experience was one marked by beauty, casual elegance, kindness and perfect service. The near cities alongside the cost are worth a visit. Even if you don't have a car, a transfer service can be... More

Glenapp Castle is a hidden gem on the Scottish coast: don't expect to see roadside signage; in fact don't expect to see any publicity at all - even the name plaque at the gates is subtle in the extreme. Wow! When you get through the gates via the intercom, boy do you know you have arrived! Glenapp is the archetypal... More

A return visit on their last day of the their season in January. I was delighted to be located in the room that I occupied last time, just typical of the attention to detail in this haven of Ayrshire. The castle was as grand and welcoming as ever as were all the staff, there has been a change of chef... More
