I don't usually write reviews but I have to share this with others. It was a coincidence that we got this place for one night (pretty busy/booked schedule but we found an open night that worked with our plans). From the minute we arrived, we were in awe. The castle is just gorgeous. Inside, they've captured the old royal feel, from the furniture to the art, the wood work, the rugs, etc. Scott was extremely helpful and showed us our rooms (Tower rooms is actually closer to a 4 story apartment - AWESOME). We had prepared wood/paper in our fireplace, functioning heaters, a roof view of the coast,...more
As you know there are several comments on Trip Advisor about the lack of dining facilities in the evening. It need only be a cold buffet or a nice stew and vegetables, kept warm, to make the evenings more memorable. Buying bread/cheese and a bootle of wine in one's room is hardly a five star experience! Eating in Tobermory and then driving back to the hotel is also a second rate option I think you are short changing yourselves
Castle was nestled away in a beautiful location with stunning views and good walking trails. Breakfasts were wonderful!! It is a bit remote down a single track road so having something for supper would be extremely valuable. Room was decent, shower drain was clogged (even though they attempted to fix it a couple of times), TV was difficult to use, and WiFi was almost non-existent in rooms. Overall, a good stay in an exceptional location but a bit overpriced for the amenities and quality.
Hel's favourite room. An annual treat...............................................................
Glengorm castle feels like home, because it is a home. Walking in through the front grand purple doors, you announce your presence with a bell, and are toured around the magical place. We particularly enjoyed the library, filled with books and interesting artifacts, AND a 16 bottle whisky collection that we were free to enjoy. Sitting by the open fire playing chess overlooking the ocean, was quite the treat. The breakfast was also superb... it was honestly a struggle to check-out and leave.
My partner and I spent the night at Glengorm and had a terrific experience. The hospitality was quite wonderful and included suggestions for a fine dinner, help with arranging a taxi and a recommendation for a lovely walk down to the shore. Thank you for a magical experience.
Excellent location with wonderful views. Well equipped but as this property sleeps 6 an extra set of keys would have been helpful as we didn't all do the same things each day. The router did not work and guests were not offered any assistance or alternative internet access even when they enquired. Several of the seats were wobbly too. It would have been nice if someone had at least popped their head in to say hello and check everything was ok during the stay as no one staying here had been to Glengorm before. Overall we still had an enjoyable stay though.
Our second stay at the property and as ever was excellent with some added goodies upon arrival, flowers and Island Biscuits!! Marjorie was prompt in visiting the house for clean linen delivery although really with a washer and dryer and laundry products to hand you don't really need them. The only down side is the annoying next door property works van that regularly parks outside the property but the up side is that there is plenty of on street parking nearby. We will be booking again with Glengorm whether it be this property or actually at Glengorm and a big thank you to all at Glengor...more
Overall an excellent two weeks at Glengorm. Enjoyed the walks and the cafe which was a 10 second walk away. Good location for Tobermory. Some minor quibbles. The sofa and chair were a bit uncomfortable - perhaps their age. Very minor leak in the bathroom sink which didn’t really warrant a call to the owners. These were minor issues. Everything else - bed, heating, kitchen, entertainment system - were fine. No hesitation in recommending.
As ever cracking.....warm, comfortable and beautifully laid back....................................
A wonderful place to spend a week; very comfortable and a quiet location. We hope to be back for a longer stay soon.
The cottage exceeded expectations. It was very comfortable and cosy and for two of us there was plenty of space including a massive bed. The kitchen facilities were excellent and the 'lobby' provided a space to take off dirty boots etc. The small sun room was an excellent bonus. Since there is a long bumpy track approaching the cottage I would recommend a 4 x 4 vehicle. We liked the views from the cottage and enjoyed seeing the sheep horses and Highland cattle in the surrounding fields.
A beautiful and peaceful place to stay, very well appointed and comfortable. Tastefully furnished with a well equipped kitchen.
Excellent views, like the remodelled outside area. Inside, everything you need while on holiday. Best of all, no people around, so very peaceful and very quiet. Completely unwind. Maybe idea to have a rubbish collection; dust cart passes right by.
