This is tricky to review. It's expensive of course and you have to decide what you are paying for. The room is very nice as is the bathroom in a classical style, but you are paying for the setting and the drawing room and surroundings. The receptionist fellow, Iain, was excellent and gave a tour of the castle as well... More

The Eisenhower suite occupies the top floor of this grand castle created for the Kennedy family to the design of Robert Adam. The public are allowed in on the lower floors during castle opening times and access to the top floor is via an elegant but elderly lift. Arriving at the suite of rooms is a wonderful experience as the... More

First little uplift was driving through large stone archway to reach castle doorway. Ian was walking past and took our bags, showed us to our room and gave us a little tour of the floor on which hotel was located and much appreciated handy tips on how to find our way around. Beautiful drawing room where we had afternoon tea;... More

Culzean Castle is just amazing. We were booked in by a cousin as a surprise. Well it was just that the whole experience was incredible. From being able to stay in The castle itself the Eisenhower Apartments to the afternoon tea to walking the grounds. The room was on the top floor and the view just amazing as it overlooked... More

On the top floor of Culzean Castle, above the tourist traffic and beyond the red ropes, lies a hidden treasure for experience seekers. My partner and I spent a fabulous evening of luxury in the Eisenhower Apartment within Culzean Castle. From the moment you bring your car up to the castle esplanade (with other tourists wondering who you could be... More

Arrived after a long drive to amazing views of the castle and surrounding area. Everywhere is very well kept and looks cared for. Were greeted by very pleasant staff and Ian helped us with our luggage and explained everything that we needed to know about our stay. We had 2 nights in the Gault room overlooking the sea which was... More

Fantastic 2 night stay at Culzean with great staff, Billy and Iain. Iain provided a guided tour of the Castle and an entertaining history lesson. The weather was glorious and walking around the beautiful grounds made you realise what a superb attraction this place really is - and the acoustics in the Round room, during evening drinks, kept everyone amused....

Just back from a lovely overnight stay in this very special hotel to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were a bit worried that it would be too 'grand'. It certainly is 'grand' however the staff ensured that our stay was relaxed and couldn't do enough to ensure that we had a lovely experience. Yes, it isn't the most inexpensive place... More

Just had a night stay with my husband and daughter. I have to be honest, it's not the cheapest place but for sheer experience and service I feel it was definitely value for money. My family and I stayed at the Eisenhower suite and the history in that room alone was amazing. A big shout out to the staff, especially... More

We had our Wedding here, in the castle and it truly was the most magical day from start to finish. Culzean holds so many wonderful memories for me and Helen and her team worked so hard to ensure that we had a spectacular day. Everybody who was working pulled out all the stops to ensure we, and our guests experienced... More
