smile. We'll be back with our children and grandchildren.'

romance and magic. Hope to be back again and again.'

to finish, you and your warm staff have thought of everything possible
to make our holiday special. We also recognise that you are a rare breed
- dreamers who can scale obstacles and make dreams come true. No guest
can begin to imagine the trials you endured to make today's Glenapp a
reality, so thanks for staying the course.'
'Thank you for sharing your dream with us. Much
more than a special hotel or resort, Glenapp has felt like another home
for us. We don't even know quite how you manage to make us feel so comfortable,
but the clear starting point is the time and attention you have given
to every detail, the commitment and passion your staff demonstrate, taking
your lead, and the love you have for this place. We hope to return many
'What a wonderful weekend we had for my brother's
wedding. May your passion always remain alive, along with your fantastic
client service. I wish you well.'
'Normally I would never consider hotel accommodation
in your price range, but I realised from the guest comments on your web
page that you must be offering something more. You are to be congratulated
on your efforts. I am a one hundred per cent satisfied customer. The castle
is a timewarp - an oasis of luxury in the style and surroundings of the
nineteenth century, in a desert of mediocrity of the twenty first century.
Totally politically incorrect, but that is how we feel - an unforgettable
experience. Until we meet again, thank you and good luck.'
'Thank you so much for a wonderful honeymoon week.
Would like to keep it a secret but I'm sure I'll brag. Thanks again -
we'll see you soon.'
'There are few places with such tranquility and
beauty. The autumn colours are unprecedented. We all much appreciated
the hospitality shown by you and your staff and the discreet attention
to detail has been superb. Thank you to all.'
