Glenapp Castle rises to the top of UK-wide luxury hotel collection

AYRSHIRE’S Glenapp Castle has been awarded ‘Hotel of the Year’ by UK-wide premium hospitality marketing organisation PoB Hotels.

Announced at PoB’s annual conference, the accolade is said to be for a hotel that has achieved ‘the highest levels of hospitality, and has a proven track record in creating exceptional guest experiences’.

PoB, which markets an exclusive collection of top-end independent hotels across the British Isles, assesses its member hotels through an annual mystery guest inspection process.

Managing director of Glenapp Castle, Jill Chalmers, said: ‘’We are over the moon to be recognised by PoB Hotels as The Hotel of the Year. From the restaurant, to the gardens and housekeeping, Glenapp Castle is made up of hardworking and determined teams who are true hospitality professionals.

“We are honoured to be awarded this accolade and I am really proud of our exceptional Glenapp Castle team.”

Beyond its picturesque location on the Ayrshire coast, within 110 acres of private estate and nearby woodlands, the Castle is renowned for its extensive range of indoor and outdoor activities, including a catered ‘sea safari’ offering fine dining in splendid isolation off-shore.

Other highlights include The Endeavour penthouse castle apartment, described as the most opulent in the whole of Scotland.

This year, Glenapp Castle has continued to prioritise that impeccable guest experience, as demonstrated on the BBC series Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby, ensuring that the hotel, and indeed, the Ayrshire coast area, is becoming a ‘must visit’ destination.
