Enjoyed our stay in the Eisenhower Hotel at Culzean. This was a lovely experience. Beautiful setting with room overlooking the sea. Delicious food and the most pleasant helpful staff you could wish for. The public rooms were beautifully laid out and it felt more like staying in a country house rather than a hotel. Furniture and paintings were fascinating and...

Had a lovely day exploring the Castle and its grounds. A few more direction signs would help find the play area, Swan lake and the walled gardens. Although dog friendly a few more dog poo bins would be good. Well worth a visit. Better signs from the caravan park to the Castle for walkers would be useful. I would have...

We had a wonderful 2 night stay in the Eisenhower Room at Culzean Castle. The room itself was really special and just staying in the castle was fabulous. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. The views from the castle are magnificent. All the food, from the cream...

What a wonderful stay we had in the Eisenhower rooms at Culzean, we also by chance happened to choose a warm and sunny weekend when we had a sunset that demanded to be photographed. Our room, the Gault, is on the cliff edge with views to Arran. We were welcomed to the hotel and shown the various facilities and advised...

Stayed here last summer with a friend. We stayed at the Gault suite. The property has 6 suites to offer its guests. The property is exquisite, each brick in the walls and ceilings breathe of the years of history and heritage that it has lived. Ground floor hosts a beautiful museum, guests can live on the higher floor. From the...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in a very atmospheric castle right on the coast. The staff were very helpful, and the castle tour was excellent. The food was very good, and the room was very comfortable. Definitely recommend a visit to sample the hospitality.

I stayed there with a group of hunters and the accommodation and staff were top notch. I could not recommend this place enough. We hunted the Cassillis estate. The staff made sure we were feed ready and on time. After the hunts we were treated to tea and scones upon our arrival. The chef even accommodated our palates with game...
