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

What a way to spend your birthday for 2 nights at this castle. Everything Peter & Lesley 2013's review, below, was the exact same for us. Met by Billy on arrival was special and so was the Gault room too, as were the hot scones and tea served in the lounge. Ok, so there were no mini bars or tv's... More

The top floor of the castle is set aside as the Eisenhower suite of rooms, previously private apartments for General Eisenhower and now 6 bedrooms with dining and lounge rooms. We stayed here in January, thus out of season for the castle tours etc. We were greeted by Billy at the door and, as he showed us into the castle... More

My sister booked the entire Eisenhower suite for her 50th birthday. The location is stunning. The rooms are fabulous. As others have noted the staff are fantastic. Having a privat4e function here with use of the drawing room and dining room is great. The food is OK but not brilliant. Overall I have still rated excellent as everything else was... More

My wife and I stayed here with our son who was visiting from Australia. The Castle was a step back in time, beautifully restored and maintained. The hotel component of the castle was very comfortable, the rooms and en-suites were were well presented and beautifully decorated in period theme. We had the privileged to dine in the dining room where... More

This is one of the most beautiful castles that I have ever seen. I was with a group of 88 American women this past week. The beauty of the curving stairs and entry way with the largest collection of USED weapons, and the views of the Irish Sea were amazing. The history of the top floor being reserved for General...
