We booked the Glenlaurel Inn for a last minute weekend getaway. It was perfect! We loved everything about it! We stayed in a croft which was intimate and quiet. We loved having the hot tub right off the master bedroom. The food was fantastic! We had the 6 course dinner Fri night and breakfast both mornings. This was our favorite escape so far and we look forward to coming back again hopefully in the fall!

Room Tip: We stayed in "The Bruce" croft. It was perfect for a couple!

From the minute you arrive you feel pampered. Have been here several times and always enjoy myself. Make certain you make reservations for dinner at the inn, you won't regret a moment of it. Highly recommended!

Our original destination in the Hocking Hills area, had been closed by a power outage from a big storm. Trees were down and damage was everywhere. We had been looking forward to this getaway for some time, and had already made the 150 mile drive and purchased the food and supplies we were going to need. As we turned back to head for home, the owners put us in touch with Glenlaurel, as they had power and not as much wind damage.
Greg and his staff were more than accommodating! They saw to our every need. We were so fortunate that Glenlaurel was available, and rescued our stay. Greg, one of the owners, came to our cottage when we first arrived, to see if everything was ok, and if there was anything more he could do for us, with a plate of cheese, strawberries and crackers for our inconvenience. This, and the many other attention to details by the entire staff, made our stay at Glenlaurel, exceptionally warm and inviting.

First Let me say the GOLF COURSE is THE HOKIEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN. You Charge $25 per round to play that course. I get your trying something different but $25 per round for an. 8 hole cow pasture. greens were DIRT not sand and BUMPY. You have to buy special golf ballsand use wood shafted clubs. Dinner was ok . Not worth $100. Cottages were ok but not worth $350 PER NIGHT . You nned to reavaluate your whole program. Too expensive. SORRY

We’re sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy your stay.

It was our goal to create an original links-style course, mimicking one of the 1800’s. It is not intended to be a modern-day course with manicured greens and tees. We wanted to bring this historic golf experience to the beautiful Hocking Hills and feel we have accomplished this with the assistance of world-renowned golf architects, Dr. Michael Hurdzan and Dr. Chris Hurdzan, from Hurdzan/Fry Environmental Golf Course Design. The $24 charge includes the use of four original hickory shaft clubs, 3 golf balls, and a score card.

Regarding our menu, we take pride in all the selections and our candlelit dinner service is second to none – as quoted by many of our guests. The price for a six-course candlelit meal is $98 and the seven-course meal is $118 and includes all non-alcoholic beverages (coffee, tea, juices, and soft drinks); we feel this price is agreeable and below other market costs for a similar meal.

This review is specific to the restaurant/pub at Glenlaurel Inn. My wife and I were just here as part of an anniversary get away. We wanted to try a "fine dining" experience and we found it at Glenlaurel. We had an amazingly delicious 7 course meal. The beef and chicken were both amazing! The chef for the night, Eric, even came out to speak to each of the guests after dinner was over. Service was amazing and I have no complaints what so ever! Sure its a little pricey, but sometimes you just have to splurge for a good time.

My wife and I received a $350 gift certificate for a wedding present two years ago and we used it this weekend. We have had a mostly relaxing weekend but will not be back. Our impression was not initially high of Glen Laurel. We originally booked our trip in December as a "pregnancy getaway". Several weeks before our trip, my wife was put on bed rest. Glen Laurel hit us with a fee... Even though I was willing fax medical records to prove it.

Staff- 5 out of 5 on the staff! they were incredibly friendly and eager to serve. They made us feel very welcome

Room- we stayed in the MacGregor room. Understand, we have a 4 month old at home so we were looking forward to sleeping in. This room is beside the kitchen and we could here every conversation and clanging dish. I felt as though we were being punished for not having money to upgrade

Food- we had dinner last night and the meal cost us over $100. The service was excellent but the food was mediocre. It certainly is not worth $100. The complimentary breakfast was amazing!

Golf- don't waste your time bringing clubs. The fairways are mowed patches in a field and the greens are browns.... Not brown grass.... Brown dirt.

Scenery- the trails are beautiful! You can take nice walks on secluded paths... With no one around

Room amenities- they have wifi which is great... But cell phone service is nearly impossible. The rooms are very clean and the bed is comfortable! Bring a laptop for movies... They charge you to rent a Tv (yes i am serious).

Again... The place is nice but we won't be back. It is over priced, nickel and dime you, and we couldn't sleep in.

Jason, we first want to thank you and your wife for being our guests at Glenlaurel. We value your opinion and strive to always make Glenlaurel a more special experience for all of our guests.

Because of our size, cancellations affect us significantly. Therefore, when cancelling or changing a reservation with less than 14 days, guests will be charged for one night’s stay plus a $30 processing fee. Your reservation was changed 12 days prior to your scheduled arrival and we only charged you $30.

We are committed to our guest’s satisfaction and like to maintain high standards. We agree with you about the noise level from the kitchen and we sincerely apologize. We have addressed this issue with the kitchen staff and are working on adding sound barrier.

Regarding our menu, we take great pride in all the selections, preparations and service that we offer. We get many guests who are blown away by our level of service and the European style of food that we serve. Glenlaurel is fortunate to have a stellar staff and our chef’s take great pride in preparing a delectable menu. The price for a six-course candlelit meal is $98 and the seven-course candlelit meal is $118 and all non-alcoholic beverages are included (coffee, tea, juices, and soft drinks) and we feel this price is agreeable and below other market costs for a similar meal.

In regards to our Scottish Links Golf Course, it was our goal to create an original links-style course, mimicking one of the 1800’s. It is not intended to be a modern-day course with manicured greens and tees. We wanted to bring this historic golf experience to the beautiful Hocking Hills and feel we have accomplished this with the assistance of world-renowned golf architects, Dr. Michael Hurdzan and Dr. Chris Hurdzan, from Hurdzan/Fry Environmental Golf Course Design.

Glenlaurel is situated in the heart of Hocking Hills and surrounded by vast forests. Cellular service is spotty and can be limited in many locations; most guests traveling to the Hocking Hills are aware of this. Unfortunately there isn’t a way for us to cure the lack of connection. However, all accommodations do have land line phones and you may be reached directly in your room.

We sincerely hope you will consider visiting Glenlaurel again so you can receive the welcome and experience you expected during your first visit.

My wife and I visited Memorial Day weekend. The seven course Saturday night dinner was excellent beyond description. The quality and quantity of the food was perfect. Our room in the inn was furnished comfortably. Breakfast was fresh and wonderful. The air conditioning in our room malfunctioned and the situation was gracefully handled by the staff. We would definitely return if the chance arises.

Fabulous! Thank you so much for your visit and your feedback. We’re so glad you were able to treat yourselves to a special stay and to our 7-course dinner. We are very lucky to have a gracious staff and a chef who takes pride in his work!

We sincerely apologize for the lack of air conditioning. We strive to have working pieces & parts, but there are times when things can’t be fixed as quickly as we’d like. We appreciate your understanding and are glad everything else was to your liking…and beyond your expectations.
We look forward to having you as our guests again! Thank you for such kind words.
