Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Had a brief but wonderful stay here recently. My wife and I were very impressed by the friendliness of the staff who went out of their way to look after us. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The food in the Dungeon bar was lovely as was the freshly cooked breakfast the next morning. We enjoyed a walk through the woods on the Fairy Trail and part of the bicycle trail. I would love to come back in the summer.

A hidden treasure surrounded by woodland. Great walking area for all abilities. At breakfast one morning we saw 2 red squirrels running on the lawns. The deer were grazing on the parkland. The Castle was very comfortable with extremely friendly and helpful staff. While dining was restricted to the library, the food was lovely. We highly recommend Kinnety Castle.
