“Great golf and great people”
Reviewed 19 May 2013 via mobile

Thanks to all the staff at Glassan Golf Hotel. My yearly three days with my in-laws the McGettricks was another brilliant stay. Great location, excellent food and most welcoming hotel. Throw in an excellent golf course and it makes a great weekend.

Enjoyed a three day stay - golf course is long, challenging and has spectacular views - beautifully maintained. Hotel rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Food in restaurant was good. Phone and wifi reception were very poor - no wifi in bedrooms any distance at all from reception area - had to take lap top to reception area to get good coverage. Will definitely go back - thank you

Glasson Country House Hotel and Golf Club is located in one of the most beautiful area of the Midlands. This hotel is surrounded by a wonderful golf course with spectacular views over the lake. We stayed for 2 nights at a wedding. The welcome we received from Julia was so personal. She could not be nicer to us. Niall, the General Manager was so welcoming & accommodating. My sister & I had separate rooms but had not requested to be accommodated close to one & other in our original booking. Julia had this sorted in minutes with infinite patience & professional courtesy. I had a glorious robe & slippers in a very spacious room overlooking the golf course & lake. There was tea/coffee making facilities & a little pack of biscuits something - I have not come across before in any hotel I have stayed in previously. A lovely & v weclome touch. The beds, pillows, bed linen & towns are all of a luxurious quality. Hair dryer, room safe (v welcome in today's world) plus underfloor heating in the bathroom. Soap & shower cap provided but no toiletries. The main thing that struck me about the bathroom was the SHINE! It was spotless. The chrome shone, the tiles were spotless, the shower door was gleaming! The shower was huge with a wonderful flow & lots of hot water.There were 2 sinks with lots of space for one's cosmetics, etc. Something every lady appreciates. Dinner is available in bar or restaurant - excellent value & superb quality. Breakfast was also superb with a hot & cold buffet available for self service. The breakfast dining room is in the older part of the hotel & a little sad compared with the rest of this magnificient, spacious, airy building. This is a wonderful hotel. There were special rates for wedding guests so in terms of value for money with superb service & facilities I would recommend staying in Glasson Country House Hotel & Golf Club next time you are in the area. Many thanks for a wonderful stay. :-))

Stayed here for four nights for a wedding. Rooms are large and comfortable; ours had a lovely view of the lake. Staff are welcoming. Breakfast (as mentioned in many reviews) really is excellent. A comfortable (rather than spectacular) place to stay if you want to avoid chain hotels.

I have visited this place many times but have not stayed. I booked in last week with a group of customers for a small conference. The attaention we received and the help from the hotel was top class. The place is family ownwed and the minute you walk in you feel welcome. I spend a lot of time in hotel rooms but the rooms here were a class above most of them. They were clinically clean and everything worked. The location and the views are out of this world and the golf course is one of the best in Ireland. Our evening meal was also exceptionally good and enjoyed by all. It was a great feeling that you are a valued customer to the hotel and would make you want to go back again.
Any hotel that can offer you this type of welcome is because all the staff work as a team, and this was very obvious

Room Tip: Try and get a lake view room. On a sunny day they are special.

We got married here on 2nd April 2013 & owe huge thanks to all the staff & management for making our dreams come true... They even got the sun to shine!!! Fidelma, Gareth & Niall were so attentive during the preparation stages with prompt responses to any queries we had & nothing we suggested or requested raised a brow! We had family & friends staying for a few days around the wedding day & everyone was so happy with their spacious rooms, the complimentary upgrades, the fab views of the lake, the friendly reception staff, babysitters etc all getting special mention in the feedback...(See Jeditraining review for one of our guests perspectives!!) A special thanks to the girls on reception Julie & Marie who welcomed some guests who arrived later in the evening just before dinner - you really put them at ease, and the offer of bringing them a drink to the room while they freshened up & got ready was much appreciated!! Also Julie, thanks for all the offers of tea or drinks while I was chatting to guests the day after the wedding in reception, for booking the restaurant, bus etc for our evening plans on Day 2 too!! On the wedding day our guests enjoyed a lovely 'drinks reception' in the bright & airy bar area, looking out on fabulous views of the lake & golf course. Thanks to Niall for taking us down to the lake for some fab wedding pics too! Our wedding meal got so many compliments - great quality beef & fish, tasty starters & soup & of course scrumptious plentiful dessert.... And even the 'seconds' were sampled by a few! The wine was flowing & everyone had a fantastic meal - complimented by sunset over the lake from the stunning glass to ceiling first floor reception room! The dancing & late bar were enjoyed by all.... hassle free hospitality! My husband & some friends enjoyed the stunning golf course & scenery with complimentary pre & post wedding tee-offs & 'playing Glasson' was a great experience enjoyed by young & old! Day 2 was so chilled, after the fab buffet breakfast more refreshments were enjoyed in reception & lunch & drinks were sampled in the bar later in the day! What can we say except 'Thank You'! Also thanks to Tom (the boss) for giving my niece & nephew a little spin in the golf buggy before we left the hotel, a lovely touch! To all the staff at Glasson Country House & Golf Club - we highly recommend you to couples considering this venue for their wedding, go with it, best decision we made! Everything was 100%.. we noticed... our guests noticed & nobody could find a fault! We look forward to seeing you for our one year anniversary, if not before.... Thanks for everything, Ger & Darren McCabe

Room Tip: Lakes views are the icing on the cake!!

This is an excellent Hotel and Golf Course. My wife and I played the course yesterday and really enjoyed the golf. The course is a great challenge with the rough well cut back. The management obviously want to keep the players moving along.
The changing rooms are slightly odd in our view as they share toilet facilities with the public bar. At dinner our steaks were very good but we were surprised that the veggies were rather plain and seemed to our mind to have been delivered pre packed to the hotel. They were a long way fresh. We were asked by the receptionist if everything was ok with our meal and when we offered this opinion she seemed to be taken aback and rather abruptly said she would inform chef. In my view the chef knows full well that his veggies are below the standard one might expect at a four star venue. Deserts were also out of a freezer and were not made in house. A lot of convenience in the kitchen and I would expect a better effort from a four star venue. Joe
