Have passed this hotel many times, and always noticed that it is busy. Had not heard any reports about it from friends etc. However, we stopped here on way back from Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. We were lucky to get a table (saturday night and we had not booked) and were delighted with the meal.
The staff were friendly and efficient, and there was a great atmosphere in restaurant.
Two of us had a curry (of which there was a good choice), one had home made steak-
pie and one fish pie, with salmon, smoked haddock and huge prawns. Our starters were lovely and there was a good choice of puds, all very reasonably priced. Unfortunately we had no room for them, so settled for coffee. Will certainly go back
here - sooner rather than later! Plenty parking spaces too.

We chose the Fenwick Hotel for our wedding because of the beautiful decor and the very helpful wedding coordinator Caroline. During our wedding day all the staff could not have been more helpful and were on hand to attend to anything we required.

Caroline could not do enough for us and was completely calm the full day which help me as the bride stay calm. Everything ran smoothly thanks to her.

The service during dinner was excellent and the food was great. All our wedding guests had commented about how good the hotel had been.

We had booked out the majority of the hotel rooms for the wedding and each room was perfect. As most of our family was traveling from Ireland the close access from both Prestwick and Glasgow airport was ideal.

I would definitely recommend the Fenwick Hotel for a wedding or event.

The service here is 100% fabulous. Couldn't speak highly enough of the attentive, friendly staff.
Food was great and the bar chappie was very good at putting together after-hours snacks for us upon late night returns.
Breakfast was superb and the weekend (blonde) breakfast lady needs to be mentioned for her perfect service!
Our room was newly refurbished so no complaints there either.
About 30 mins drive from Glasgow centre but the hotel will recommend a great single car cab service that charge less than £30 each way.
Would definitely recommend.

More a review of the hotel as a place of entertainment, rather than a place to stay, as I have never stayed at the hotel. Have enjoyed the lovely Sunday Carvery many times. The Hogmanay Celebrations over several years, and very recently a reception for my daughter who was married abroad and had a celebration at this hotel on her return.
A very good night, lovely staff, could not have been better. Lovely tasty buffet was supplied, ample space for guests, a good night had by all. Family members who stayed at the hotel found the rooms very comfortable and breakfast very good.

Room Tip: no complaints from family members

Having had the experience of Lunch, Dinner and afternoon tea at the Fenwick Hotel it was the first choice for our Daughters wedding.The wedding was fantastic everything was taken care of by the amazing staff at the Fenwick Hotel. We did have some unusual requests for certain things to take place during the day of the wedding but this was never a problem as the Hotel was more than happy to meet all the wishes of the bride and groom.The food was fantastic, the staff were superb and thanks to Caroline everything ran on time, what an amazing job she did for us all.We also stayed at the Hotel for 2 nights taking nearly all the rooms everyone was really happy with their rooms clean and comfy with plenty of space.The breakfast buffet is great lots of choice and plenty of it .Having had such great service from the Fenwick Hotel last week we returned to have a 50th birthday lunch with family which again was excellent. If you want value ,quality and service then this is the place to visit ....The Hotel has been refurbished in the last year or so and what a beautiful job they have done, it is very classy and has a great feeling family and friends that have not been there for years cant believe the transformation and most will re-visit.

Dramatic improvements to the bar and restaurant areas.
Rooms are fine and the bathrooms modernised to a high standard.
Food was fantastic and very reasonably priced along with fantastic service. Was a tad dissapointed to find the old bar and tv lounge had gone but dont supposed my hosts were too bothered about watching England get beaten by Uruguay.

I'm not local but popped in for a meal in March based on a recommendation from a local man that I know. Took two Swiss friends.
Very impressed with food, service, surroundings and prices.
Will re-visit very soon...
