A great rural location and a warm welcome in this boutique style castle, where the old and new are tastefully co-ordinated in the smart decor, made for a lovely overnight stay. Excellent quality of food, first class service all round and a very comfortable suite. After check in, our group started off with a stroll round the wooded grounds and... More

had a really great stay at Kinnettles Castle. Was a bit dubious about the dinner and breakfast arrangements, all being seated round 1 large table rather than individual tables, but it was far better than I expected and everyone was really friendly without being intrusive and we all got on so well, we ended up in the bar for a...

Stayed here one night dbb on itison deal, location is quite and away from everything, views from the castle are stunning, staff were friendly and courteous. Loved that it was only a small hotel and there were not a lot of people staying made it very peaceful and chilling, generally when we go away we stay in our room but... More

We booked afternoon tea at the very last minute due to a change in our Mother's Day plans and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The afternoon tea was brilliant and we enjoyed the selection on offer. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were excellent and the staff were very attentive without being overbearing. The castle is beautiful and... More

I absolutely love Kinnettles Castle. This was my second visit within 3 years. It is a fantastic venue - a beautiful, well maintained castle in a peaceful setting but only 5 miles from town. Our junior suite was amazing and the view was breathtaking. Service was excellent and the range of facilities just gets better. I will definitely return as... More

As per title except it seems to let down expectations by a lack of professionalism in the dining department. We were seven and had a large table downstairs all to ourselves. The food was OK but fairly average in terms of staff efficiency and quality of the service itself. Agreed all round that this was a place you must have... More

Wow! What a lovely hotel and such friendly staff. This old castle has been upgraded with fantastic spacious modern luxury bedrooms, ours overlooked the country views out front. The public rooms are welcoming, comfortable and bright. Dinner was excellent and breakfast had a good selection cooked to order. We spent two nights there and would happily stayed longer.
