Just back from an Entertainment Weekend at the Glenburn and we were entertained very well on all three nights but more of that later.
It is our fourth visit to the hotel and, on request, we were given the same room (411) so no problems with accommodation. All the staff encountered were as usual pleasant and efficient. Of the meals taken four out of the six were very good but the other two were poor. One breakfast must have been dished up about 30 minutes before serving and the Topside of Beef was very tough. There was a temporary hiccup with the steamers in the kitchen on one night but as it was promptly and politely explained it was not a problem. The soups were delicious and contained more substance than the watery versions you get in some hotels.
Having been to Rothesay three times before, the time between breakfast (8.00am) and dinner 7.00pm) seemed to drag a bit this time. The previous daytime entertainment sush as Race Videos & Dance Music were replaced by Indiana Jones fims.
The evening entertainment was superb. After Bingo on Friday the resident duo Limited Edition put in a good stint followed by a very good Elvis impersonator with the duo rounding off the night with requests and dancing.
Saturday again was opened and closed by the very good Limited Edition, in between we were given an hour of the Detroit Twins, a dynamic duo belting out many Motown and Soul classics in a non stop perpetual motion performance.
Sunday was compere Gary’s night and what a night it was, starting with a very funny Bingo session he performed a one man show that had everything .He is a very funny man with a versatile voice, plays an adequate guitar and has a natural rapport with his audience. He was the Elvis from Friday night.
