We stayed at Glenlaurel for our anniversary celebration. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The property was well landscaped and maintained. The idea of individual cottages and crofts is great and all of these come with their own private hot tubs which we did enjoy.
We were disappointed with the appointments in the cottage. The quality of the furnishings and bathrooms were in keeping with a mid level hotel chain. We expected more.
We were also disappointed with the dinner selection each night - one. We felt that there should be options available. One of the nights there was not one item on the menu that we would have ordered if we had a choice. The breakfast selections included two or three menu options. We did not understand why for dinner there was only one option nightly. The quality and presentation of the food was very good.
We did take advantage of the Spa with a message and a yoga class. The staff at the Spa was great and comes highly recommended. However, the Spa facility is located in a converted house. It totally lacks any ambiance or treatment rooms that we have come to expect in current Spa facilities. Once again, we expected more of the Spa facility with the price of the Spa treatments being equivalent to a 4 or 5 star resort with state of the art Spa facilities.
While there are things we would like to see improved we did enjoy our stay at Glen Laurel. We were able to totally relax and enjoy our anniversary celebration.

- A visit to Glenlaurel is laced with romance; from the moment the Manor House comes into view at the driveway entrance until it fades into the tree line from the rearview mirror at departure...the warm welcome at the front door feels like arriving at the stately home of a distant but approachable relative where the children are all grown or away for the weekend. Welcome into the Legend...the Legend of Glenlaurel. Experience the look of the Scottish countryside and the feel of times gone by at our luxurious Hocking Hills accommodations (rooms, suites, crofts, and cottages) that are perfect for romantics and dreamers. ... more less
