Afternoon tea was a great way to have a relaxing treat. Once again the welcome was warm, service was first class, but not stuffy, and super comfy surroundings. I was there just before Xmas but the time before was during the summer with Australian relations, who were very impressed, and we took advantage of the good weather to have a... More

A warm greeting at the entrance was followed by discrete friendly and efficient service. We have been here before and have never been disappointed as the quality of service and food has not dropped. Rooms are immaculate and the grounds are well maintained. Relaxing break to be repeated. Great value for money, and a cut above other hotels. The owners... More

My wife & I stayed in the Ailsa Craig Suite for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the complete package that goes with staying in such a majestic property. From the moment we were greeted on arrival at Glenapp Castle, until the moment we drove away, the personalised service was 1st class. What we very much enjoyed was the beautiful balance... More

Tucked away in the Ayrshire countryside, Glenapp Castle provided the most spectacular setting for our son's 40th birthday party which he hosted last weekend. We had sole use of the hotel and so it became a house party for 32 friends and family. The hotel was so welcoming with a lovely blazing fire in the lounge and also in some... More

The difference between good and excellent is less so the efficiency with which the staff did everything, which was superb, but really it was the softer "man-management" that made the difference - and that extended all the way from those that were heading up the team (John & Hugh) down to those for whom it was their first day. It... More

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
