This is the most amazing place to spend a night. I went to a private party, we had the whole of the hotel. It was brilliant, the staff were wonderful, the food delicious and the overall ambiance was really fantastic. The grounds and the surrounding area is breathtaking. I can't praise it highly enough.

Can not fault the facilities! Can not fault the helpful staff nor the wonderful walled garden! We had a fabulous visit in pouring rain, but this didn't dampen our spirits. The site is massive and there is lots to do...the crowds are absorbed by the vast space. Really interesting audiovisual display at the visitor centre. I you like gardens you... More

We visited Culzean on a sunny day around 4 oclock (very close from the last admission). The castle is just amazing, with fine furnitures and subtile internal decoration. We were amazed to see sculptures and paintings of Napoleon Bonaparte, which is unusual in UK Castles.... The sea view from the main reception room is also unique. The castle is also... More

The location is magnificent, on the cliff edge in the former stable courtyard, next to the castle. The cottage is warm, well equipped, clean and very comfortable. It has been recently redecorated with new curtains and some new carpets. We particularly enjoyed walks in the grounds when the day visitors had gone and the views to Arran were magnificent especially... More

My partner and I stayed for one night at this amazing castle. We were greeted by Iain who showed us to our room which was the Ailsa . We were very impressed with our room and large bathroom. We really enjoyed our visit to this lovely castle .

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
