Brunston Castle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We have just spent a week at Brunston Castle and we enjoyed it immensely. On arrival the reception staff were very welcoming and friendly and our accommodation was excellent. Although there were only two of us we had a three bedroomed lodge. The lodge was very well furnished, there was a double bedroom and two twin rooms, an open plan lounge/diner/kitchen a bathroom with shower and also a separate toilet. The site is very hilly and may not be suitable for anyone with limited mobility. In the Leisure Centre there is a swimming pool and baby pool, a gym and sauna. Outside there is a putting green and a childrens playground. Although there is no restaurant on the site there is a restaurant on the adjacent golf course. The meals are very reasonable price and, although not adventurous, are well cooked. On the evening we went, however, our reservation was for 7.30pm and when we got there two of the dishes were already off and by the time a party of 6 arrived at 8.30pm there was very little to choose from. We also had to wait about 20 minutes for our starter and a further 45 mins for our main course. Needless to say we didn't stay for dessert. There are a number od restaurants within about 12 miles of the resort and, although we self catered most of the week, we did eat at the Minishant Inn about 11miles away and we enjoyed that meal immensely. There is a well stocked supermarket in the village just outside the resort and also a local shop which also is well stocked. On two evenings a week a mobile fish and chip van comes to the site and we took advantage of this , the fish and chips were very nice. On two mornings a week a local guide, Ron, does guided walks, he is very knowledgeable and the walks last for between 2 and 3 hours, some of them are very hilly so again not suitable for anyone with limited mobility. We would certainly recommend this resort.

I stayed with my wife for a week we were very pleased with the accommodation which was clean and very well maintained. The grounds were also well looked after. The saff were polite and friendly. There is an ability to use the restaurant at the golf club next door for meals, whilst the food is of a reasonable standard for the price the service needs some improvement. There are other good restaurants in the area also.overall very good and we will return.

My wife and I stayed here for the second time in the last 5 or so years. The standard of the properties have been well maintained and are in excellent condition. The site is well looked after and very tidy. There is a restaurant at the golf club adjacent to the site and the food there is excellent and very reasonably priced. If you are looking for a lot of visitor attractions nearby - this is perhaps not for you although the countryside is very pleasant for walking. All in all we had a very restful week here and the weather was ideal for us.

Room Tip: All chalets sleep a minimum of 6 - some 8 - and are spaced so as not to overlook the neighbours.

As with all Seasons Holiday resorts, this one is very, very, good. Accommodation is in separate lodges, each with its own parking space, Lodges are clean and well equipped. Wifi is available in the Guest Lounge. A small supermarket is situated in the village of Dailly nearby. Many interesting locations in south-western Scotland are accessible from this site.

Room Tip: No comment.

This was our first time at brunston castle, and it will not be our last, after our week stay we didn't want to go home, we contacted interval international to try and get a second week, but unfortunately we had to leave it behind, the three bedroom bungalows, with two bathrooms are of high standards, we would be happy to live in them, the accommodation is so perfect, and so is the location, the staff are friendly and helpful, brunston castle is perfect in every way, you must visit this fantastic place, we cannot wait to go back.

I will start by mentioning the negatives about the resort, the pot holed entry road. Now onto the positives, Lovely staff always willing to help, lodges are a great size we were in no. 53 and it was 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and 2 singles) with The kitchen was a little small but you were supplied with all you needed (6 place settings as well as glasses and cups) The fridge and freezer is massive so able to hold all you need as well as a dishwasher and washing machine. The beds are comfy enough even with back issues. We only used the pool and sauna the pool was a lovely temperature and not crowded the changing cubicles are a little on the small side though.

Room Tip: 53 was lovely but had no real views as its at the bottom of the valley but has recently been updated
