“Fantastic week”
Reviewed 20 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We arrived after a long trip from Yorkshire, to find a nice bottle of wine and a home made cake, along with some other essentials in the fridge.

The flat was a lot bigger than we though from the description. The three rooms had been made into double beds as requested. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you should require for your stay.

The lounge was well equipped and had a great open fire, with unlimited logs out side. The whole flat was toasty warm and the fire just gave it that little bit of extra charm. There was no local pub to go and spend the evenings, so make sure you take your own to enjoy in front of the fire.

We took our little dog, he spent the night in the kitchen and had plenty of walks around the estate and gardens.

It was a perfect base to explore around the local area.

Well worth a visit and we would definitely consider going back.

“Absolutely Fabulous”

The Chauffer's Apartment at Lochinch Castle has everything for a wonderful stay. The location is extraordinary having access to the Castle Kennedy gardens and much of the estate as well as being centrally located to explore all that Dumfries Galloway has to offer. The apartment is spacious, well appointed and convenient easily accommodating 6 adults. The staff were very helpful and the welcome package very much appreciated, (the sponge was an instant hit). Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

“Idyllic”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The photos are not deceptive; the apartment looked exactly as pictured, was exceptionally clean, had everything needed for a comfortable stay. There was an endless supply of wood for the fireplace, the sitting room was cozy and pleasant, and each bedroom offered its own unique charm. The staff at Lochinch castle is top-notch in their preparation and handling of financial affairs; ever courteous and pleasant. The welcome sponge baked by the castle chef was very nice with coffee. The grounds are fantastic in their beauty and variety of species, and one is free to wonder at will. The little room near the entrance to the apartment has bicycles and a pump. Our 9 year old granddaughter delighted in riding off down the pleasant lanes through the trees and fields. Many areas of interest and beauty are within an easy drive. Stranraer offers shopping and necessities five minutes away. Collectively, we could not think of one negative element to our one week stay. We would return in a heartbeat.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay thus far. It is stunning, spacious and I don't have enough nice words for the staff. The customer service has been top knotch. We were even greeted with a homemade cake and wine! The scenery is like something out of a dream you hope you get to have again and again. We highly recommend this flat to anyone considering.

“Fantastic Place”
Reviewed 14 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This is a real gem of a place and its the second time we have stayed. Situated above the courtyard of Lochinch castle you have a beautiful setting to explore at your own pace. There are acres of Gardens right on your doorstep and even out of season you are free to explore them. Dogs are welcome. The apartment has large comfortable rooms, TV, DVD, 3 bedrooms, all mod cons. It is perfect for a relaxing break. Highly recommended. We will return.
