Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We recently attended a family wedding at Boclair, what an amazing venue! Everything was absolutely perfect. My father is in a wheelchair and staff went above and beyond to make sure he enjoyed the day and was taken into the ceremony and any meal etc first so we did not struggle navigating groups of people. There is an accessible toilet in the ground floor of the building and a ramp and disabled parking at the back of the building to allow access. Many old grand buildings struggle with accessibility due to the style of design but Boclair have done their utmost to overcome that and be inclusive. Everything was fabulous!

Stepson’s wedding at Boclair . What a fantastic day. Staff were brilliant , very professional and well organised . They made the day purr along without being in the way. Food was good and bedrooms first class. Drink prices were reasonable considering the location which was impressive. A few English relatives there who were blown away with the whole experience. Great job from all involved.

We attended the most beautiful wedding at this venue which was perfect from start to finish. The staff were incredibly friendly and went above and beyond, food well cooked and served efficiently, rooms decorated beautifully and they really seemed to care about the bride and groom having the best day. The upstairs suite we stayed in was stunning as well, perfect way to end such a wonderful day!

Firstly the embarrassment at having a meal refused for a child when it was clearly paid for. And after some coming and going getting some inedible undercooked chicken for her. By the time she was given it she had eaten bits and pieces from everyone on the table. My son had the chicken also and it was pink inside but not as bad as the baby's. She didn't get any dessert either she ate her mum's. My vegi meal was disgusting tasteless mush with a very strong sauce covering it. I left most of it but no one even asked was everything ok. The buffet that evening couldn't be identified as no labels on it. No lights so my partner used his torch to get some. We didn't have wedding cake as didn't see it at all.. I was in the room with the babies. The chicken was dry. I purchased three rooms at £175 each. Our room was the Skye. The bathroom windows couldn't be closed and music played till 3am outside so it was impossible to sleep. My daughter in the room next door said the same but fortunately she could close her windows! At breakfast the following morning it was like Fawlty towers. I ordered just four items and specified no meat! I was given no tomato but sausage.. The server said she had written it down wrong. Human error ok ... And brought me the correct one. Then brought my partner's and the groom's mums. Went to get sauce then came back and told them their breakfasts weren't theirs and took them away! Then she returned and told me she had mine...I asked her why and she said it's got fried eggs. I just was fed up at this point and said I'll keep what I have. She looked so confused! The place wasnt busy at all so really no excuse for us all being served so badly! The rooms are stunning. The place is beautiful. I feel let down as the service should be fabulous especially given that it was such a small party. To add the bride and groom didn't get a piece of their own wedding cake and were told it was binned! They didn't have prosecco to toast the speeches as they weren't given any! I'm shocked that a venue used purely for weddings isnt run like a well oiled machine!

I’ve stayed here before for a day around Christmas 2018 (?) to see family, but when I tried to book subsequent visits more recently, I was told I couldn’t stay as it was exclusively only for weddings, and stays outside of weddings couldn’t use the hotel . I have family in Bearsden, and this hotel would have helped a lot, however now I’m pushed to staying in the Kimpton hotel in the centre of Glasgow ( there is not very many hotels of any quality in Glasgow for some weird reason?) It’s shame this hotel is only for wedding parties, as this hotel impressed me and was really convenient.

We stayed over after attending a wedding. The wedding went extremely well, choreographed expertly by the hotel manager. The building is superb; hard to believe that it was a municipal/council building! They certainly didn’t stint themselves when they built it! The room was lovely, although a double bed would not be my ideal choice - a king would be more comfortable. Breakfast was sensational, no other word for it. All of the staff encountered were fantastic, a great asset to the hotel.

I attended a family funeral tea here and I can honestly say it was the worst I’ve ever been to. Our table was set for six although there were only four of us which was fortunate as there were only four little pots of jam on the table, a plate with about a dozen sparsely filled sandwiches and about eight slices of a large sausage roll. No tea or coffee was in sight and after waiting about thirty minutes I asked if there was any and was told curtly that it was just coming. We had finished the sandwiches and sausage roll and still no tea or coffee. We saw another table had scones and cream, we did get the scones but no cream and after asking we were told it was just coming. We were there for over two hours and during this time the offering came out bit by bit with no apology. If fact, we were made to feel as if we were a nuisance for even asking for tea and more tea. The other table also had cakes so we asked if we were getting any and we were told they were just coming. About fifteen minutes before departure we were given nine tiny cakes with the cheesecake still slightly frozen, nothing to eat them with and a fair dose of total indifference from the badly trained staff. The bereaved lady had ordered a starter and a main course for dietary reasons. You won’t believe she is still waiting for the main course. I would never advise anyone to book this venue and I think they should be ashamed of such very poor service on such a sensitive occasion.
