‘Excellent – an authentic castle that lived up to all expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed my one night stay and cannot recommend Culcreuch Castle Hotel highly enough!
‘In a beautiful peaceful location, the hotel cannot be faulted. The public rooms, such as the drawing room, were furnished just as one would expect from a Scottish castle and were relaxing and peaceful.
‘The bedrooms were very comfortable and well equipped with all the amenities needed. We had a delicious dinner of ham terrine and perfectly cooked venison in the dungeon restaurant where the staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly.
‘All the staff were very helpful and friendly! The gardens were also gorgeous – all in all a memorable place to stay! If in the area again, I would not stay anywhere else!’
