Visited for my dads 85th birthday. Afternoon tea was great and plenty to choose from, all fresh and tasty. staff welcoming and friendly. Would highly recommend. The gardens are beautiful and well worth a walk around.

Glenapp Castle is something special, very special. This Easter break we returned to the castle for a 3 night break, we were last here back in 2011. Glenapp Castle offers great service, outstanding dining experience , public areas are Downton Abbey like style, the large open fire, the personal objects, paintings, the whole environment makes you free like you have...

We stayed here over Easter with our two children and had a superb time. We drove up from London and after an eight hour trip were greeted by the large double gates to the castle. Clicked on the intercom and was told to drive a mile up the driveway. Distances like that for drives don’t exist in London! We pulled... More

We stayed overnight here with our 2 little dachshunds on the way to Ireland. It was the highlight of our weekend, what a treat, what a wonderful place this is, a credit to the owners and staff, for whom nothing is too much trouble. Our room was perfect with its own private entrance right onto the garden and the car... More

Was excited to attend Glenapp Castle for afternoon tea with family - so glad we visited as have always wondered what lay behind the big gates! Young girl who looked after us was very good at her job and very helpful! We received a lovely welcome - castle and grounds are gorgeous, I imagine they'd be even more so in... More

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.
