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 have stayed a few times at Mar Hall and have always experienced the best service, this time was no different. All staff interactions were superb, the room was lovely and the food was exceptional. The grounds were immaculate and we were fortunate enough to get some sunshine for this time of year. Highly recommend. Will stay again.

Excellent one night stay at Mar Hall. We were welcomed by Alan, the Concierge, at the front steps and had attentive, friendly staff throughout our stay. Our room was large and comfortable with a generous bathroom and lots of hot water for baths. We ate in the dining room and the food was delicious. We enjoyed three courses and liquer coffees. Breakfast was equally good. We are looking forwards to booking a long stay in the future.

This is my third visit, my partner and I first visited during Covid in 2021, ( we loved the outdoors Hottub and hot beds - we hope they survive the refurbishment, what a view!) it’s a beautiful place, we made sure to book 2 nights on our future visits as one night is not enough to enjoy the full experience of the hotel, the location is stunning. The rooms are beautiful , the staff are so friendly and attentive and the food is amazing !! There is nothing to not like . My partner and I had a 2 night stay at the end of February and it was even better than we had remembered, we loved relaxing by the pool . I booked to take Mam for Mother’s Day we were slightly disappointed that the pool was closed due to the refurb but everyone made her trip feel very special we soon forgot that, especially when we got a wee cheeky surprise drinks tray to welcome us back . Every member of staff is friendly and chatty and make you feel so welcome . During both my recent 2 night stays we did not leave the hotel , it is so relaxing just to sit in the grand hall reading a book , the perfect weekend break . Loved the afternoon tea too that was a nice touch for mother day.

Enjoyable stay with great breakfast. THe hotel is tired and ready for a refurbishment. The Lithiuanian girl working in the spa really spoiled our stay though, she was very rude and also unprofessional and not what I would expect from this standard of hotel. We would return just not to the spa.

My husband and I went for a weekend away to Mar Hall. It is currently undergoing renovations and there was plenty evidence of this around the buildings. That did not detract from our stay at all. The staff right throughout our stay were friendly, helpful and polite. The food was delicious and the bedroom was very well appointed and the bed comfortable. My only other comment is that they don't allow tips to be put on credit cards which means you will need cash to tip the staff if you wish to do so and I for one definitely felt they all did.

An overnight stay at Mar Hall on a Valentine's package. Expensive, yes, but you expect higher prices over 14/15 February, so no surprise there. What Mar Hall did offer was value for money which is what most reasonably-minded hotel guests hope for. Certainly the "de luxe" room - at least initially - more than lived up to its branding - lots of space, big comfy bed, good temperature control, superb view over the Clyde to the Kilpatrick Hills. Enormous bathroom with "his 'n' hers sinks", deep bath tub and separate shower cubicle. Dinner menu was a bit limited in choice but the meal was excellent - good portions, well-cooked and quality products. Staff were efficient, cheerful and obliging. Tables well-spaced, allowing for a private conversation. Thoroughly enjoyed breakfast too - such a great choice I will even forgive the absence of fried eggs. So why four stars and not five? Well, there were a few niggles which did not detract from the enjoyment of our short stay but may have done had we stayed longer. Several drawers in the bedroom were missing their ring-pulls, making them difficult/impossible to access; the television was a bog-standard 32in screen with limited channel choice - and the way the settings constantly pulled you back to the list of (frankly overpriced) rental films eventually became an irritant; there was no plastic laundry bag to store used clothes. And my anticipated long soak in the deep bath tub never happened because the water was lukewarm - I was in and out within ten minutes. Hard as I tried, I could not even locate a booklet giving information on hotel facilities and policies nor - and this was most surprising - a brochure relating the history of this huge, mock-Gothic Victorian pile. Perhaps it was marooned in one of those inaccessible drawers.

A friend related me to an overnight stay.we received a very warm welcome, every member of staff without exception could not do enough for you. The bedroom was large with lovely memory foam toppers on the bed and it was so comfortable, tea coffee facilities were supplied along with nice biscuits and chocolates. The bathroom was also very large with a separate bath and shower. Nice toiletries were also provided. The facilities in the spa were great. We had a casual dinner and the food and service were excellent. I will definitely return.

Location / scenery is beautiful, staff were great and food brilliant but that’s the end of the positives. Room (45) was in the annexe and corridors etc are so dated / shabby. Hugely disappointed to expect to stay in a ‘deluxe room’ at Mar Hall and be shoved in a pebble dash white Annexe that looks as if it’s on its last legs. Room was a good size with a nice view of the loch but was roasting, shower didn’t drain, only one tiny shower gel and couldn’t get more when I asked a member of staff. Attention to detail shabby with things like the shelf in the bathroom sloping. Spa treatment was nice but swimming pool / leisure facilities were a shambles. Only one steam room open which was barely warm and both saunas out of order and have been for some time. No jacuzzi which I would expect in a five star hotel. Steam room was also filthy with the tiles clearly never been properly cleaned. Food menu in main restaurant was very limited and extortionately priced (valentines special) but we were able to move to bar next door to eat And the food there was fantastic. Breakfast was good, lots of choice but would have been nice for hot food to be ordered from a menu rather than a buffet. Overall we had a nice night but that’s because we made the most of it and got a taxi to a pub nearby for some drinks / atmosphere. We were very excited to be staying in a five star hotel and instead ended up disappointed that we have stayed in much nicer 3 star places. Won’t be returning. Hopefully the owners invest enough to completely transform it as the best thing about the place is the staff and they deserve to keep their jobs.

Booked a Grand Suite for one night to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The hotel staff were all very friendly and welcoming. Could not fault the size of the suite however it was in need of refurbishment, the furniture and decor had seen better days. The suite had 2 tvs but were placed in awkward positions which made viewing difficult. The water pressure in the shower was great however the water temperature was look warm at best even with the highest temperature setting selected. We enjoyed a couple of cocktails in the bar area, the server was friendly and attentive. We both had a great sleep, the bed was spacious and comfortable. We didn’t eat dinner here but the breakfast was great. Selection of cereals, pastry’s, fruit and hot food was on offer. Overall we enjoyed our stay however the bedrooms do require a little tlc. I wouldn’t agree that this is a 5 star hotel but definitely a 4.

My wife and I stayed at the wonderful Mar Hall Golf & Spa Resort for 2 nights for my birthday. The hotel is secluded, sitting in the Earl of Mar estate, but very close to Glasgow, Glasgow Airport and the M8 motorway. It is a favourite hotel of pop stars playing in Glasgow, and also football teams. My wife and I are not celebrities but felt that we were treated as such! The resort definitely deserves its 5* rating (in our experience some, 5* hotels do not always live up to that standard). Our room (Room 1) was massive with wonderful views of the River Clyde and Kilpatrick Hills. The bathroom was nearly as large as the bedroom and had a lovely deep bath, walk-in-shower, 2 sinks and a chaise longue! The sumptuous interiors are tastefully decorated in the style of a stately home (it was originally commissioned by the 11th Lord Blantyre and was completed in 1845). However, the hotel has a homely, relaxed ambience as the staff are so friendly and attentive. In fact, all of the staff went out their way to make us feel special. We have to say that the staff were outstanding and the hotel's greatest strength. We were so well looked after by Dayna, Michael and Abbi in the dining room, Blair in the leisure club, Willie the concierge (and the new chap whose name we sadly have forgotten), Victoria on reception and Robert who carried our luggage for us. Every member of staff we encountered went above and beyond. The food and service in Cristal Restaurant was top notch. There was an imaginative menu featuring local produce, and an extensive wine list. The leisure club has a lovely 20 metre pool, steam room and saunas as well as gym equipment. My wife and I certainly intend to return to this idyllic resort - it is ideal for special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. The hotel had left petit fours and a card in our room for my birthday - a nice touch.
