My partner and I recently spent the night at Glenbervie for the wedding of a close friend.
The hotel is beautifully appointed in its own private grounds and we found all areas of the building to be finished to a high standard with beautiful furnishings and decor - it's a wonderful location for a wedding. The staff were all very welcoming, friendly and couldn't have done enough for us - even in the early hours when the party hadn't quite drawn to a close!
The food was excellent - drinks and canapés were served as guests arrived, the main meal was delicious and beautifully presented and in the evening there was a buffet for guests with a BBQ which was a nice touch and most welcome. The prices at the bar were also quite reasonable and guests had the option of charging bar tabs to their room which saved having to carry a wallet about.
The room was beautiful, spacious, well equipped and finished to a high standard. There was even a selection of complimentary soft drinks in the mini-fridge which was again a welcome surprise.
The only things I would note about the room were that whilst the bed was very comfortable, it appeared to be two single mattresses pushed together. Also, I couldn't seem to find any plugs at the same height as table areas in the room which was a bit of a pain when I wanted to make a cup of tea. For £170 a night I don't really expect to have to boil the kettle on the floor!
These were only minor gripes as the truth of the matter is that you don't spend that much time in the room anyway. We were able to see a number of other rooms that our friends were staying in and they all were finished to the same high standard.
Breakfast in the morning was again of high quality with a selection of juices, cereal, yoghurts, preserves and pastries followed by a choice of cooked options. The staff at breakfast were very friendly and made sure we were stocked up with fresh rounds of toast and hot drinks.
Overall, we were very impressed with the Glenbervie and would have no hesitation in recommending it to family and friends. A beautiful venue, great staff and some wonderful memories of a special day.
