“Great stay, great hosts!”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

The castle is kept up very well, very clean. Very nice surroundings. Really comfortable bed, huge room, and very large bathroom all to yourself. Paypal was accepted without problem. Breakfasts were enormous and delicious. Great walking area down to the water. Best bet is getting a cab into Gourock. Go to Cafe Continental to eat! Great food, and Tony is a great waiter-request him!
Also Lady Lydia has her artwork all over the castle, and it's for sale :)

Not a typical B&B. A bit like Gryffindor Common Room meets the Weasley Burrows in a corner of the Room of Requirement in Hogwarts at the end of Privet Drive. Cosy, very cluttered, homey castle at the end of a residential street. It was an experience for all of us to remember and talk about.
Be aware that since this is a real castle, the spiral staircase is very narrow and winding. You will need to walk down a few flights from the street to the main entrance. The twin bedded room is on the ground floor but the main bedroom is a few flights up. So is the dining room. If you have any difficulty with climbing, or if you have large suitcases, just understand that there are no shortcuts.
Our hosts were very kind and got up early to serve us breakfast at 6:30 am so that we could arrive at the Glasgow airport before 8 to return our rental car. Jan entertained us with stories of how the castle came to belong to them while Lydia made us all English breakfasts.
I had looked into staying at other castles in Scotland. My son insisted that he would want to stay in a "real" castle, not a more modern hotel that looked like a castle only on the outside. He was pleased with our choice of Castle Levan and I am glad we had the experience for one night.

Room Tip: We stayed in the big double room upstairs and my two college aged kids shared the twin bedded room d...

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Caslte Levan. The castle's large upstairs bedroom was clean and nicely decorated. The dining area was cluttered with books and cd's stacked all over, not what I had expected.
I was also surprised to find the castle was amongst other houses in a sub-division rather than in a more secluded area. I am very sensitive to cigarette smoke and the moment I walked into the entry door of the castle, I could smell smoke residue and knew someone in the castle was a regular smoker. Lydia should invest in a high quality air purification system. Keep these two things in mind when booking.

Room Tip: Ask to reserve the master bedroom.

What a wonderful experience! My wife and I arrived late and soaking wet after a long motorcycle ride through horrible weather. We were too tired and cold to go back out and get food, so Lydia fixed us a nice dinner even though we hadn't reserved it with the room. The castle itself is everything we wanted. A traditional styled family castle that still has "unfinished" interiors. It's great because you can tell you are in a castle from your room. The hosts were happy to chat at dinner and tell stories about the castle. The bed was nice and comfy, and best of all, THE FLOORS ARE HEATED! Nice toasty feet in the cold weather is wonderful. Thanks again for a great stay!

Warm and welcoming atmosphere, lovely food and very friendly landlady and landlord. It's a small castle with a lot of privacy and nice view on Holy Loch. Nicely decorated and clean bedrooms with cosy beds and TV. There are also many full bookshelves and beautiful paintings from landlady Lydia. Would you like to know history of the castle? Landlord knows... We enjoyed the whole time spent there. We plan to come back again some day. We absolutely recommend everybody to come and see. Who wouldn't like to spend time on a real castle?

Very cosy en homely castle with friendly landlord/landlady, the fact that we would love to return en stay for more than the one night we did now, should say enough.
If you'r looking for a castle with very thick walls, little hidden alcoves, towers with spiral staircases, a lot of books, a beautiful masterbedroom with the fourposterbed etc etc, than you are at the right place.

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at Castle Levan. It is such a unique and fantastic experience. I've always wanted to stay in a castle but this far surpassed my expectations. Each time my husband and I have gone we've gone with one other couple. Seeing as there are only 2 rooms this means we had the entire castle booked JUST FOR US! It is such an amazing feeling to roam a castle that truly feels like it belongs to you--for the time being :-) I also love chatting with the two owners! They always have such interesting stories.
