Just returned yesterday from a three night stay at Kinnettles Castle. We stayed in room 6 which was spacious and comfortable, with a king sized bed and chaise longue. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and well looked after. All the staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We had dinner at the hotel on two...

We enjoyed one night here and it certainly lived up to expectations. From the minute we walked in we felt at home. The decor is very modern but fits in perfectly. Our room 6 was stunning. With it's own dressing room and private ensuite bathroom. The bedroom was a great size and the bed very comfortable. We were one of...

The staff, service and food at this hotel were fantastic. It is an undiscovered beautiful hotel in a building set amidst amazing grounds.

A great rural location and a warm welcome in this boutique style castle, where the old and new are tastefully co-ordinated in the smart decor, made for a lovely overnight stay. Excellent quality of food, first class service all round and a very comfortable suite. After check in, our group started off with a stroll round the wooded grounds and...

had a really great stay at Kinnettles Castle. Was a bit dubious about the dinner and breakfast arrangements, all being seated round 1 large table rather than individual tables, but it was far better than I expected and everyone was really friendly without being intrusive and we all got on so well, we ended up in the bar for a...

Stayed here one night dbb on itison deal, location is quite and away from everything, views from the castle are stunning, staff were friendly and courteous.

We booked afternoon tea at the very last minute due to a change in our Mother's Day plans and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The afternoon tea was brilliant and we enjoyed the selection on offer. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were excellent and the staff were very attentive without being overbearing. The castle is beautiful and...

I absolutely love Kinnettles Castle. This was my second visit within 3 years. It is a fantastic venue - a beautiful, well maintained castle in a peaceful setting but only 5 miles from town. Our junior suite was amazing and the view was breathtaking. Service was excellent and the range of facilities just gets better. I will definitely return as...
