Beautiful castle and grounds. Didn't get to spend enough time here but loved the castle. Did a highlights tour and it was very informative. Kids had a great time searching for all the hidden legos. The grounds were gorgeous. Well worth a stop if you have time.

Wonderful Culzean Castle is a perfect stop en route from cairnryan to Glasgow. Easier to turn at Turnberry and drive the few miles to this stunning castle and gardens. If you like castles you will love Culzean. It has a number of wee cafes too. Do leave plenty of time to explore the many garden walks also. Tip: The car...

Went with our friends from Lanark Scotland who we are visiting for two weeks, they were never here so a road trip was planned. Interesting historical facts abound. This place was given to General Eisenhower for leading the troops in WWII. Great views. Also In every room there is a employee who will explain features of the particular room you...

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...

We had a truly spectacular time at Culzean Castle--waiting staff super kind and welcoming, we had a lovely 4 poster bedroom in the Eisenhower apartment and our chef cooked us dinner every night, we even had a private tour of the rooms. Thanks so much for such an amazing experience!
