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...

We enjoyed our visit to Culzean Castle, it is very good, we visited last year and enjoyed it so we decided to visit again. The castle is very interesting. The restaurant at the visitor centre served excellent food. We took our 86 year old uncle with us, he is quite mobile, but he was greatly helped by the Culzean bus,... More

Stayed here the night before my daughters wedding and had a fantastic relaxing time, lovely meal the evening before. The staff were fantastic and could not do enough for us, especially Billy who is a total star. Not a cheap venue obviously but for a special occasion could not recommend it highly enough. The sunshine was a bonus as well,... More

I had always known of the Eisenhower suite on the top floor of Culzean, where there are 6 rooms accommodating guests who are lucky enough to know of it and book early! While the Eisenhower room itself was more money than I wanted to spend ( we saw all the rooms!), we had a large and comfortable room overlooking the... More

My husband and I chose this property as a splurge on our trip to Scotland. It was worth every bit of the charge to stay at this beautiful National Trust property. The castle is open to the public during the day, but after hours you get to experience the ambiance of this property without the sound of other visitors. It... More

We had an amazing stay and felt very special being one of only two parties staying for the night. Our silver service banquet dinner was lovely and the rooms very special with the four poster bed we felt like king and queen for a night, the 45 acres of gardens and woods were fantastic to stretch the legs. Well worth... More

Wow, beautiful grounds and the gardens. Kids were very happy as they had unlimited space to runaround. Amazing views, very nice cafe and really very clean all over. Great day out. We were very lucky to have a bright sunny day to help us enjoy our visit
