We stayed in a lodge room and had dinner at the Castle. We enjoyed our stay. The grounds were beautiful,breakfast great and staff very helpful. The internet is quick and the room well equipped with a great view of the harbor. We had stayed here years ago when the stables were the only accomodations and was nice also. We did see the Camp Estates from the road ,but did not see what the rooms looked like. It is down the road so you would need to drive to the Castle as it is too far to walk.
The dinner was for 26 people so it was held in the piano room not the dining room. It was better when it was a smaller group years ago and in the dining room. Now that there are more lodging rooms the dinners are larger. This is because if you stay here you have the opportunity to dine in the Castle It did seem that they needed more help serving as tea and coffee was not served until more than half the guests had left. Also the history of the house and family was not done until most people had left. the staff mentioned that they were working three rooms at once.
The views from our corner room were stunning. All the staff we spoke with were super friendly and helpful especially Winifred. Dinner in the castle dining room was a very special experience and the food was excellent. Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast was in the stables which was also special and delicious. Would definitely stay there again.
There was nothing I didn't like about staying at Larnach Castle.
