Just spent 4 days at the Glenburn on a Shearings break and must compliment all concerned. All staff starting with Steve, (our main coach driver), all hotel staff, the staff on the ferry from Wemyss Bay and the local pubs, in particular The Taverna, were great, very friendly and very helpful. This hotel boasts a great location, has wonderful grounds and gardens and your main piece of luggage was taken to the room for you.
Considering how busy the hotel was there were no long waiting times for the lifts at all. In the hotel good quality entertainment is available every night, or there are quiet areas if you simply want to relax or get some 'own-space' time.The food was very good in the main and although the porridge was great it was a bit of a shame that no 'Scottish breakfast' was on offer.
Square sausage, black pudding and 'tattie scones' might not be great for the heart every day, but as a holiday treat would probably have changed my rating from 'Very Good' to an 'Excellent'. Regardless of this minor observation this was a very good break and the hotel is highly recommended.
