"Sunday Break"
Arrived a little early but the room was ready - and what a room !!! We were in a junior suite and it was stunning. Luxurious double bed, 2 flat screen TVs, coffee making machine, trouser press.Iron and ironing board, radio It was in excellent repair and was so lovely. Bathroom was very spacious and in good order. Spa and gym were excellent and we spent a couple of hours there on Sunday and Monday before check out. You can use the gym and spa up to 3pm on the day of departure, apparently.. Breakfast was top class and staff were quick with tea and coffee and anything else requested.Nothing was too much trouble. The weather was fine so a walk around the grounds was very pleasant. Staff were pleasant and welcoming and a special mention to Joel. We were given a complimentary drink in the bar which was a nice touch. The hotel is first class in my experience.

"The Best of Ireland"
A fantastic experience: The accommodation and grounds were superb, the staff helpful and friendly. There are two restaurants, one "Vespers" is in the main hotel, the other is the "Cultra Inn", which is a separate building in the main grounds (Please note: Its a tidy walk for anyone with a disability, plus there are steps; an alternative is to request the hotel car, which is what we did).

We used "Vespers" for breakfast (we had no issues other than there seemed a lack of staff). The "Cultra Inn" was relaxed and the staff made you feel welcome.
Gratuities are not include on the bill, nor can they be added on your credit card. this is not a problem for me as I prefer to tip the person, rather han the hotel.

"Amazing views!"
I chose Culloden as a surprise get away to celebrate our anniversary. Both me and my wife were impressed by the hotel, staff and the amazing views, also there is a impressive collection of sculptures on the grounds of the estate.
Amazing experience.

"Fantastic Fantastic Fantastic"
This one has to be one of our highly recommended destinations. We took this trip to Ireland as a late Anniversary weekend getaway and we weren't disappoint. Less than an hour flight from Doncaster Airport and 10mins from Belfast city airport. The hotel managment and staff went out of there way to make our stay a romantic one. The room was what you would expect from a premium spa hotel and the food in Vespers restaurant was out of this. The best steak I have ever tasted. All I can says is this is a must visit. Well done guys, we will be back.
Ps. They have sockets by the bed with a USB charging point. Full marks

"Fabulous Stay"
I recently stayed at the Culloden Estate and Spa to celebrate my mums birthday and i couldn't have wished for anything better from reservation stage to check out everything was perfect.
Rachel helped make reservations for treatments and was very welcoming when we arrived.
Chris who took me for my massage was excellent felt like a new women leaving. Laura looked after my stepdad and he said it was the best massage he ever had. Mum cant remember the name of her therapist but said the treatment was excellent. would highly recommend booking treatments.
Sam, Michael and Ben in the Cultra were excellent as well and made my mum feel really special.
Reception staff, housekeeping staff and the breakfast staff were all excellent and very friendly.
Already looking forward to my next stay
