Absolutely fab. Words don’t do justice to the feelings we have about our stay. Everyone was superb. I can’t think of one criticism. Please don’t change as we want to come back and enjoy it all again.
D & C M- 30th March 2009

It has all been said before, however, from our experience- at Glenborradale, Inverlochy Castle and Skibo Castle- we would rather be here- and we shall again.
P Mc and A R- 5th April 2009

With my lovely husband I have celebrated my birthday! The Castle is a dream, it was a surprise. Seldom you enjoy a relax Relais and Chateaux like we did. The castle we will take with us. Many thanks to the owners, you see their "Handwriting" everywhere! In the park, it is a dream. We’ll come again.

We came top this glorious location to have a peaceful and relaxing stay prior to the arrival of our baby in May this year. We have indeed found all that and much, much more. The location, building, food, rooms and most importantly, the attention to detail is out of this world. Thank you to all who made our stay so very special- see you all again soon.
J and D C -13th April 2009

Five years on – how time flies! and Glenapp is still as magical as ever. Thanks to John and the team for looking after us as wonderfully as ever. Always a special place for us and we look forward to returning soon.

Captains log…….. A special occasion made extra special. Had not heard a lot about Glenapp but we will be able to spread the word. A beautiful location in a part of the world I’m not particularly familiar with. Considering that its only a couple of hours from where I live, its another world. The staff here have been particularly helpful, excellent in fact. Our room was terrific but a special mention has to be made of the staff. This is what makes the place. All the best for the future. A hidden gem in the rich tapestry that is Scotland.
Thank you. D and L -16th April 2009

Thank you to all the staff who made our 24th Wedding Anniversary so special and a big thank you and hug to my wonderful husband who organized it as a surprise and ti certainly was. Everything was lovely, even the weather- it was glorious.
Thank you again especially to John and Jodie. S and S D- 20th April 2009

Many many thanks for making my mothers 80th Birthday day so memorable. Wonderful food and service and great peace and tranquillity. We will be back.
R and J S- 7th May 2009

Everything has been absolutely wonderful, the castle, the food, the gardens and all of the staff. Will definitely come back for a glorious meal or a relaxing stay.
P and J B- Ayrshire- 8th May 2009

I am sure that I echo all the thoughts, praises and wonderful memories that the ‘Goodwood Challenge’rs from the USA are thinking. A most magnificient venue and incredible staff have given us memories to last a lifetime. We will remember you always. It is certainly the "Rolls Royce" of exclusive hotels. I only hope I have the opportunity to return one day.
RK – Rolls Royce Motor Cars, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 10th May 2009

We came to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary. What a wonderful place- the castle and grounds were magnificent. The staff were friendly and attentive, you all made our celebration something we will treasure for ever. Thank you all- and hope we shall return again. First Class.
C and J -Milton Keynes, 17th May 2009

What could have been even more magical than our first visit to Glenapp?..... The second! We’ll keep the warmth and beauty in our hearts until next time. It was wonderful to see you again and to be pampered once more by your stiller staff. Thanks to Midge and Mossie for taking us walkies (we needed the exercise after Chef Stokes fabulous dinners!) With fond remembrances’ and dreams of returning.
D & A S-California, 25th May 2009

What wonderful food and service. A truly wonderful afternoon.
JM HP & JA, 19th June 2009

What a treat! The Castle, the view, the menus, the food, the staff and the service. All wonderful. Adam deserves a Michelin star, all delivered with perfection. A thoroughly enjoyable 3 nights.
Many thanks, D and P C, 15th June 2009

A wonderful castle that feels like a home. Congratulations on a beautiful estate, sympathetically restored to perfection. We have stayed in many acclaimed hotels in the UK but none as special as yours. We look forward to our next visit already. The staff and hospitality were especially magnificent.
The J family, 5th July 2009.

What a wonderful place to spend our 40th wedding anniversary, a weekend we will treasure for the rest of our lives. The splendour of the castle, the gardens and the views were quite breathtaking. We would also like to compliment the chef on a wonderful variety of menus and food definitely 5*. Finally a thank you to all the staff for their excellent service and making our weekend so wonderful.
J&J D, 6th July 2009

Breathtaking – my new home away from home. Beyond enjoyable and especially for our 20th wedding anniversary.

A great, great stay in Scotland. Thank you so much for the hospitality and 5 Star service.
L&C L, Ontario, 12th August 2009

What a perfect location for a honeymoon. The beauty of this castle is undoubtedly matched by the detailed, personal and discreet service provided by all the staff here. Well done. A perfect combination created a perfect break.
Mr & Mrs MG. 21st August 2009

The food is marvellous and gardens really pretty. Best ever castle.
L aged 9. 13th September 2009

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Delightful in every way. Discreet and caring staff, fabulous food and beautiful gardens. Restful and timeless elegance without being stuffy.
T&I B, 28th September 2009

It is probably the most relaxed I have been. It’s like having fairies do everything for you but you never see them. This was a wonderful birthday surprise. The food is outstanding.
F&K, Leicestershire. 7th October 2009

We can’t imagine a more lovely holiday! A perfect setting for walks and relaxation. The castle is beautiful and the food exceptional. We look forward to a return visit.
K&R F, Miami, 24th October 2009

Thank you for sharing your home with us. This does not feel like a hotel. It has all the grandeur of a castle but the warmth and comfort of a home. Glenapp has been the highlight of our honeymoon and we would love to return one day. Top class food, staff, suites, grounds and a welcome we will never forget.
Mr and Mrs V. 12th November 2009

We couldn’t have spent my birthday in a more beautiful place. The rooms, the staff, the castle, the setting, all totally superb and then there’s the food……words fail me! Dinner is the highlight of the day. We feel that we are guests in a beautiful country residence, not a hotel. So very welcoming, we will recommend it to all.
P&D B, Lancashire. 19th November 2009

Many thanks for a wonderful dining experience. What a taste sensation, especially the foams. Service was also wonderful. Thank you for a lovely evening.
