We had a fantastic day here. Short walk up to the lovely restaurant and gift shop then a wander down to the castle. The castle was fantastic, full of wonderful heritage and a really enjoyable experience for everyone. I'm in a wheelchair and this was no problem for anyone there. The children loved playing in the castle play area too... More

This is a hard review to write as some aspects of the hotel were fabulous while other aspects make a stay here - less than perfect. The Culzean Castle (The Scots pronounce it cuhl-leen) is a massive building with gardens and acres of woods and fields plus numerous outbuildings. It is a designated national Scottish treasure and is maintained by... More

Lots of grounds to walk around with lakes, deer, alpacas and birds. Interesting castle to visit. A nice surprise is the gas works (keep the men interested!) Lots of different areas around the grounds an lovely views from the castle.

I'm not supposed to be writing this review per the kids as they don't want anyone else to go there and spoil it. But this is where I found you so, I think it's only fair.
