Stayed here on business and thoroughly enjoyed it - great staff, pleasant rooms, good restaurant and good service. Very reasonably priced and punches well above its weight. Highly recommended; especially for business travellers - very convenient hotel.

Stayed: June 2014

We have passed here many a time and finally got the excuse to stay, while attending a wedding.
I was very impressed with the service-even prior to staying as we required a room prior to the day of the wedding, and were contacted by The Fenwick staff to advise of room availability.
In arrival we were pleasantly surprised by the high quality finishes and noted that the only let down was the external of the hotel-as in no way did it reflect the interior finishes.
The bedroom was clean and well equipped, our only issue was the noise from the nearby road. This was only apparent when we had to leave the windows open all night due to the heat of the hotel.
We decided to partake in a few beverages on the first night, enjoying the lovely gin cocktails created by Grant (the barman).
The next morning we enjoyed a selection of fresh fruits, yoghurts, cereals and full breakfast options. I was a little disappointed there were no croissants or continental meats and cheeses as noted in their menu.
The hotel staff were incredible friendly and more than willing to help with anything.
The bars are well equipped and reasonably priced.
The wedding was wonderful, just a shame about the weather!
Only bad thing we noted was the water pressure in the showers-it was pretty poor so it's quicker to run a bath! That and the only other bad thing was that the pakora ran out at the evening buffet before we could get our hands on it!

No major gripes regarding our stay.

The accommodation was fine. It was clean and the decor of the room was in keeping with what you'd expect of a 3 star hotel.

The breakfast options were equally fine. Nothing too fancy here but enough available to satisfy.

We stayed in a double room for two nights...costing us a hefty £320.

Essentially, our stay here was ok but on reflection we think that this modest 3 star hotel is charging 4 star prices.

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
