We booked up for a tribute weekend to celebrate our friends 40th birthday before reading the reviews. Im delighted to say that we found some of the poorer reviews were absolute nonsense. The Hotel is ideally placed on the front (promenade) with superb views, it was clean, the rooms were spacious with comfy beds, the staff were always friendly and helpful, the food was terrific and the bar prices wont empty your wallet.
There is entertainment in the hotel at night and the resident singers try to accomodate all tastes and age groups,(30+ to 90+ when we were there). The tribute night was Elvis and he was on stage for 1 hour and 20 minutes, ( SUPERB) This is a hotel where, if you want it to be good, it will be! and if you dont, it wont! Dont come to the Glenburn if you are looking for things to go wrong, its an old Hotel that has character, and if you want new fitted wardrobes, Plasma tvs in your room and a spa bath, you will be disappointed. There is good news and bad. The bar in the hotel shuts at 11.30 pm on both Friday and Saturday night. Good news, a taxi into Rothesay takes 3 minutes and costs £2.50 and the bars are open quite a bit later and thers also entertainment on there. We will definately be back soon, Cracking golf couse within 5 minutes as well, just gets better and better.
