Reviewed 13 August 2014

Lovely hotel and in great location with wonderful views and staff very friendly but the food was disappointing. On checking in we were asked if we would like to make a dinner reservation and we thought this was for the restaurant but when we arrived downstairs later we discovered the restaurant was closed and we were directed to tables off the bar area. Food serving was a little rushed and ironically our main courses were cold. They were replaced but then the fish was only seared and not cooked as per the menu. We were disappointed and if we had known the main restaurant was closed we would have had pub grub. Rooms were a good size and very quiet so all else up to scratch.

Room Tip: All rooms have good views and are quiet

We had the reception of our wedding at this hotel on 3rd July 2014. What can I say from start to finish everything was perfect. Gareth and all the staff are fantastic. Always there to help with a smile. The function room is a perfect layout for a wedding with the beautiful views of the lake surrounding the whole room. They even have an area off the dance floor for kids to watch dvds or play games while speeches etc are goin on. The food was delicious all of our guests commented on how good the food was. All guests rooms (not just the bridal suite) are big, very comfortable and extremely clean. Most rooms have a balcony. Breakfast was delicious too. I cannot praise this hotel enough. It was the first and only hotel we viewed for our wedding, there was no need to look anywhere else we had everything we wanted at this wonderful hotel.

On behalf of family friends acquaintances we would like to thank the management and staff at Glasson country house for making our stay special and for making Yanis and Gail's wedding a very special memorable occasion, with particular thanks to Niall and staff for making us feel very welcome from start to finish.
We would very much recommend this hotel for just a relaxing stay or indeed a special occasion such as ours!
The fabulous grounds surrounding the loch was a big bonus.
Thanks again Nikki Iacovou & Ang Zenonos

Room Tip: Loch view room with balcony however all rooms are immaculate clean and very comfy

We stayed at the Glasson Country House Hotel & Golf Club for 2 nights for a family wedding. We were a party of approximately 30 people from London all staying in the hotel. The welcome and hospitality was first class and all staff, managers and the owners of the family run business couldn't do enough for us to ensure our stay was pleasant and comfortable. The scenery and grounds were breathtaking. The wedding venue was upstairs in an extension of the original house with a panoramic view of the golf course and lake. The food and service for the wedding were excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

I attended a wedding in the Glasson Hotel last Sunday.It had been a number of years since I stayed in the hotel.They have added on a new wing , which incorporates function room , restaurant and bar.The views of the lake are breath taking , even on a rainy day.It has to be one of the best locations for a wedding.
In addition the hotel has superb bedrooms, excellent food and very friendly staff.The golf course is also superb , with fantastic views of the lake.I would certainly recommend the hotel and look forward to returning there again.

Room Tip: Rooms with the lake view are fantastic .

While this hotel is first & foremost a golf resort, the hotel is now very active in
the "wedding catering market". Beautiful facilities for same.
The staff are extremely friendly and most helpful.
Breakfast is excellent with wide variety of choices and all fresh daily produce. The brown bread is fab. Remember to to ask for your porridge! It is brilliant.
The 18 hole golf course (with excellent club house facilities) is both challenging and forgiving with fantastic scenery.
Currently there is some ground work being undertaken on the 18th, with hopefully some layout directional design changes. In the meantime, I would suggest signage there regarding any inconvenience to golfers!
Did not really appreciate the ambiance / table settings layout for the evening meal in the new building. While it is a brand new build, the present interior design layout, does not create a warm intimate atmosphere for "couples" for evening dining. A review of this by the management would be a good idea. Other outdoor facilities include, boating on the lake, and walking adventures. Glasson village nearby is wonderful with very good restaurants. Well worth a visit. Excellent base from which to tour during the day.

Room Tip: Request a view of your choice, i.e., golf course or golf course/lake view
