What our guests say

"We stayed in the Countess of Inchcape room which was just right for our short 3 night stay. The bathroom was very large and the hot water was instant which is unusual in many Scottish castle hotels. The setting was magnificent and we enjoyed a mesmerising view of Ailsa Craig and the beautiful castle gardens. The food was worthy of at least 1, if not 2 Michelin stars. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful and we can't wait for our next visit."
