'We thank you for a delightful stay. From start 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.'
TA, Virginia, USA, September 2002

'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 times.'
A&G O'K, London, September 2002

'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.'
AB, England, September 2002

'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.'
J&R R, Ireland, September 2002

'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.'
S&K J, Toronto Canada, October 2002

'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.'
The S family, Hong Kong, October 2002
