I worked at the Glenburn 40 years ago and decided to return for a bit of nostalgia. Externally no change but as one would expect lots of internal changes. However, some were great and others so-so. Food, service and staff were all 1st class. But, I was very disappointed to discover that in this day and age many of the rooms did not have a shower (bath only); the room we were first allocated - no shower, however, the Receptionist managed to change our room and my friend and I were very impressed with this room - big and very comfortable. Enjoyed the lounge area which was sufficiently roomy that we could sit well away from the TV - football final was on that weekend! Weather was a bit indifferent but did not spoil our trip and it was capped with a sensational sunset on the last night. Visit to Mount Stuart House is a must when visiting the Isle of Bute.
