Dear Anna, I would like to thank you kindly for taking the time to review the Glenesk Hotel and for sharing the great experience you've had whilst staying with us! I agree wholeheartedly with your comments about our staff, they are wonderful and are always willing to go the extra mile! They want all of our guests to have an amazing experience while visiting us and this special area of Scotland. Our bedrooms have undergone renovations recently and I'm glad to see they are being well received by our guest too. Our 360 Bar is a sight to behold and is really something spectacular! The variety on offer here at the Glenesk speaks for it's self. We do hope that you will get the opportunity to visit us again. You may enter the Hotel as a stranger, however you will leave as a friend! Best wishes, Kirsty Smith Deputy Manager

Good Afternoon, We have currently got plans to develope our Function room area for an alternative use in the near future and are therefore not in a position to take any more large Wedding bookings at this stage. Smaller Weddings up to fifty guests maximum can be taken but we do not have the capacity for evening entertainment. Kind Regards, Martin McIlrath General Manager
