Stayed over at Glenbervie on 26th May for a wedding for which I was maid of honour .. Five stars is not enough to describe Glenbervie House Hotel. The location itself is remarkable , very easy to access but secluded enough that you have total privacy. The venue and surrounding are out of this world and the House itself is breath taking, an added touch is the peacock who lives in the grounds. The weather was glorious so the red carpet was rolled out for the wedding party arriving and this added a special touch to the day. The wedding itself was held in the drawing room, over looking the gardens and despite there being over 100 people at the wedding there was plenty of room for everyone and at no point did anyone feel crowded. After the ceremony people mingled outside and at the bar while the furniture in the drawing room was changed around so the guests has comfy armchairs to sit on , this was done quickly , efficiently and with no disruption at all to the guests. The wedding breakfast was delicious , all food was served very quickly and was piping hot on arrival. The plates were cleared at a good speed between each course and at the end of the meal. Between the meal and the evening guests arriving the guests were invited to go to the drawing room or outside to the patio while the reception room was made ready for the night guests. Again this was done quickly and with minimum disruption the the guests. The thing that really made this day go so wonderful were the staff at Glenbervie .... I cannot praise them highly enough. Despite having a wedding on the day before they allowed us to leave our luggage there ready for the next day and they allowed guests to check in early on day of wedding . They were on hand to help with anything and everything and nothing at all was too much hassle. They were very non intrusive but always nearby when needed. Shona helped the bride plan the day and I know she was wonderful in soothing a very stressed brides nerves. After the wedding a few of us staying in the hotel were not quite ready for bed and a special mention has to be made for William, who was working overnight , he was wonderful in allowing us to sit downstairs in the drawing room , providing drinks when required, providing sandwiches and just generally chatting to us. The rooms were beautiful, spacious and clean and breakfast the next morning was great with a choice of continental or full cooked breakfast. All in all Glenbervie House Hotel was a wonderful choice for the wedding and I cannot recommend this venue enough., Thank you for making a special day that little bit more special.
