We went with Great Rail Journeys in October to stay for four nights at Glenborrow Castle. Yes it was a long journey to get there but well worth it. The hosts and staff were extremely friendly, the food was out of this world and the accommodation excellent if you were lucky in the pick of the draw. Our large, four-poster bedded room was in the smaller building (as in the photo) but we still had good views of the wonderful water, forest and hill scenery. Unfortunately, one couple drew the short straw for the hip bath (!) and had to share a shower. Otherwise everyone had an old Victorian roll top bath with a shower attachment. The public rooms were large and comfortable and everywhere was warm! Afternoon tea was a real treat with sumptuous cakes (on one afternoon) and at dinner there was a good choice always. Breakfast was buffet and included porridge and the full cooked works. We were so lucky with the weather as it only rained a little a couple of evenings. Generally there was no phone reception here but you can just get Wi-Fi in the middle of the lounge! And no TV of course. We would love to go again.
