Glenapp Castle is a fantastic hotel. Situated in a secluded position, it offers great service, accommodation and food. The "best room available" package is good value. On arrival, the staff are at the door to give us a warm welcome. We were in the Countesses Room which had a lovely view to the sea. We will be back.

This is a truly wonderful place with superb service and attention to detail by the team there. It is a stunning location with wonderful rooms and collectively it all adds up to a wonderful experience.
We stayed here recently for two nights and from start to finish it was truly superb. There are many old castles that are now operating as hotels but the difference between the ordinary ones and the excellent ones usually comes down to the way the hotel is run and the attitude of the staff there. I can honestly say that the team in Glenapp understands that important difference and that collectively they make this a wonderful place to stay and provide guests with a great experience that will be long remembered.
We cannot recommend this place highly enough and are looking forward to returning there soon.

This is a fantastic hotel, with absolutely top-notch standards of service, food and accommodation. The gardens are gorgeous, too. We were on the 'best room available' package and we had a huge suite overlooking the sea, for not much more than half the standard rate. A great bargain!

Room Tip: The suites offer real luxury.

This is a Scottish baronial castle. It was built for the chairman of P&O Lines. It is a once in a life time experience. Our room was the baron's suite. It was as large as a football field (see photo of only a portion of the room). On arrival at the front door, the household staff was outside, lined up to greet us with sheltering umbrellas (Downton Abbey comes to mind). We were escorted to our room which, besides its immensity, was beautifully furnished with period furniture and furnishings. We were in the corner (top left in photo) and had windows on three sides; the front and side gardens, and the rear garden with a view of the Irish Sea. Our dinner was every bit as deliciously sumptuous as was the castle. The bar and common rooms had museum quality art and furnishings. The manicured gardens were in keeping with everything else. The staff were well trained professionals who who were clearly proud of Glenapp. An iced bottle of champagne was in our room on arrival.This stop was a side trip along our drive from the Lake District in England to Edinburgh. It was no minor side trip but worth every minute of the arduous trip (pouring rain on small roads). It is quite expensive and the baron's suite the most expensive. But it was a small cost to purchase this lifelong memory.

Room Tip: Go for the baron's room. You're spending a lot of money anyway. Spend a little more. You will not regret it.

This absolutely marvelous place is one of the best, both hotels and restaurants, that we have ever visited! Everyone in the staff is so helpful, the grounds very, very beautiful. The room with its magnificent view, was perfect and the beds sooo comfortable! The dinner with its 8 courses was also just perfect. Can't wait to return!!
