What’s Included

Overnight Stay in historic Scottish castle

Dramatic coastal setting

Two-course dinner

Perfect gift

When it comes to drama and romance, a sweeping Scottish castle on a clifftop is pretty unbeatable.

And Culzean Castle must be one of the most romantic and dramatic of them all. Overlooking the Ayrshire cliffs, it is one of Scotland’s prettiest coastal jewels.

Now if only it were possible to hide away inside it as a secret guest after the doors close on the very last sightseer for the day….

As a matter of fact, it is. For if you take a special 1920s elevator to the upper floors, you will find a small and opulent hotel. Named after its former owner, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the hotel offers amazing panoramic views across the sea.

Experience this magical hideaway for yourself with today’s Big Deal for an overnight B&B stay with dinner for two at The Eisenhower.

Clifftop castle

Set in The National Trust for Scotland’s Culzean Country Park, the imposing Culzean Castle blends medieval and neoclassical influences. Designed by famous architect Robert Adam, it really is a fairytale masterpiece.

The Eisenhower hotel is in keeping with its dramatic setting, offering six unique bedrooms and Adam’s dramatic circular saloon for guests to enjoy.

Individually decorated and styled with period furniture, all of the rooms have views of the sea or the stunning castle grounds.

Memorable stay

Available Thursday to Sunday until the end of March, the Big Deal option one is for two people to stay one night in a double room with a two-course set dinner each. Option two is for two people to stay two consecutive nights with dinner on the first evening.

Both options offer full Scottish breakfast each morning.

Refined dining

The menus at The Eishenhower place the emphasis on freshly prepared local produce, including fruit and vegetables grown in the gardens at Culzean.

Menus change with the seasons but typical starters include chicken liver parfait with maple glazed smokey bacon and oatcakes or the oak smoked Scottish salmon roulade with horseradish, Avruga caviar, pickled fennel and ciabatta crisp.

Mains include pan seared fillet of wild halibut with sweetcorn, brown shrimp, samphire and dill oil and the roast breast of Gressingham duck, confit leg, parsnip puree, cherries and port reduction.

Dessert favourites feature buttermilk and lemon pannacotta with strawberry sorbet and meringue and the white chocolate and raspberry creme brûlée with raspberry shortbread.

See & do

The Big Deal includes free access to this remarkable castle and grounds and a free tour can be arranged upon check-in. Entrance would normally cost £16.50 per person and is subject to availability.

Guests can enjoy walks along the stunning Culzean coastal path or through the beautiful country park right on the doorstep.

The hotel can provide information on the wide range of sporting activities available in the area, including clay pigeon shooting, horse riding, archery, sailing or spa days.

With some of the world’s most famous golf courses within easy reach of the Eisenhower Hotel at Culzean Castle, visitors may enjoy a round of golf at Royal Troon, Old Prestwick and, Eisenhower’s favourite, Turnberry.

Impressed visitors

Guests lucky enough to stay at the Eisenhower hotel have been quick to express their approval on TripAdvisor, underlying how special an experience this stay at Culzean is:

‘The room was gorgeous with a separate bathroom off our hall, amazing views over the lawns and the fountain and over the grounds’ woodlands. Our room was big and airy and the bed was really comfy.’

‘It was a surreal experience to be in the Castle when all the daily visitors (and most of the staff) had gone home. It is a wonderful place and the hotel facility is superb.’

Perfect gift

Scotland just doesn’t get any more romantic than Culzean. This Big Deal, offering a room at the Eisenhower overlooking that dramatic seascape, is the perfect idyllic escape and would make a brilliant gift for a loved one.

Picture the scene: relaxed strolls in the grounds, an intimate dinner a deux, maybe a spot of golf… just an idea.

What other 5pm bookers like about this deal...

Special place with great cultural historic significance and a seafront location that I've been wanting to visit for a number of years and wouldn't normally be able to afford. Excellent that dinner is also included.!! Have bought one as an anniversary treat and another for friends who are our catsitters and recently had to cancel a booked short break elsewhere due to sudden unexpected illness so we felt they deserved a treat too.

I have visited Culzean Castle since I was 4 years old and remember the hotel as the Eisenhower Suite. To be able to stay here is a dream come true. The location of Culzean is unsurpassed probably in the world. We also visited the castle and grounds many times with our son when he was young. Off to book my big deal!

It's a rare opportunity to stay in a castle for a night to be treated like royalty! Looking forward to seeing both the historic castle and the famous Eisenhower hotel will be wonderful. Plus it's only an hour or so away from home but will feel like a different world!
