My husband and I stayed at Glenesk this week for a two night break while walking in the area.We had a four poster room with a huge comfortable bed overlooking the front of the hotel,modern bathroom with bath,shower etc.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay,and could recommend it.The hotel has been refurbished,and all done very tastefully,retaining some features and changing others.We used the swimming pool and hot tub both days,an added bonus after walking in the hills!
When I phoned to book the very helpful receptionist suggested we could have a two course dinner for £15,and that was excellent value.We had dinner both nights in a beautiful dining room overlooking the garden.The food was delicious and well presented.
The staff in the hotel were all welcoming and helpful,especially in the bar and restaurant,where they knew who we were without asking-a sign of people who really know what they are doing.
We hope to return to Glenesk for a short break again,as it's a lovely hotel in a lovely area!
The next time we may try a room at the back of the hotel,as the only downside was the early morning sun streaming in the large windows,but then that wouldn't matter if it was dull!
