Third visit to Glenapp since August 2006. A wonderful place to come and relax, whilst being fed wonderfully amazing food. Looking forward to our October 2008-J’s 50th Birthday weekend. I am sure all our guests will enjoy the experience as much as we always do! Thank you and well done!!!
L & J Pirrie, 3rd May 2008

Fantastic! Thanks to the attentive staff. Keep up this good work. The food - worthy of the Michelin Star. Joining the QM2 to New York tomorrow, you’ve given them a hard act to follow. Looking forward to the next time.

Our 40th Wedding Anniversary-wow, what a wonderful place to celebrate-memorable, wonderful staff, owners, surrounding ... we will come again maybe for our 50th ... but that seems too long to wait, so maybe at the end of my Summer Season! The tourist board were quite right-Perfection.

What a fabulous piece of paradise you have here. Love the food. The surroundings are absolute perfection. Everyone made our stay divine.
S & B L, 2nd August 2008.

Very difficult to find the right words to describe our experience tonight ... genuine warmth and hospitality ... really friendly welcome ... honest wine list advice ... good honest Ayrshire banter ... unique experience .... all the wonderful recommendations were under-rated. Best stay ever.
R & S, 24th August 2008.

Faultless-from the owners to the staff you made our stay absolute perfection.
G & M H, 24th August 2008

I love the setting, the building and the people. John and Jodie are the most unbelievably lovely people you could ever meet. They knew their food so well. I was amazed, I admire the way they both take things in and recommend new things. The castle itself is the most beautiful thing to look at (on a summer day), I love the selection of drink and the food is awesome. You should be proud of the chef. I am a big cheese guy, I loved the Arran Mist.
Love from E Pirrie14 years 4th October 2008

My son appears to have acquired a taste for the finer things in life !! Very worrying ! Indeed a super experience, as ever.
J & L Pirrie 4th October 2008

I love this place! John has to be one of the smartest people I know as I doubt he doesn’t know a cheese in the world along with the wine to accompany it ! The food here is Wow.

My first visit to Scotland, Our Honeymoon! They say `"Start as you mean to carry on" but we’re not sure how we could possibly follow.
Thank you to John, Ian, Jodie Anna Lise, and of course to Fay and Graham for making us so welcome, happy and comfortable. Together you have made a honeymoon unforgettable. And to our unseen Artist, the most talented Chef who has created a tableau of delights for us each night-
Thank you. G and J Brockett,4th December 2008

Thoroughly enjoyable visit and lovely lunch, thanks to all the staff. Heard from my late husband J McCulloch who was a staff member of the month at North West Castle all about Glenapp Castle when it was being renovated. It is every bit as wonderful as he told me. Best wishes to all.
