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.

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

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

Went for a special treat dinner with our daughter to this marvellous castle. From the moment we arrived at the gates of the property we were thrilled by the experience. 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
