“A pleasant stay”
Reviewed 24 April 2011

Newtonmore proved a good centre for the hills to the west and Speyside. Our beds were very comfortable. We ate in the hotel on each night of our three day stay - good pub food. The bar can get quite busy! Staff were helpful and friendly.

We were able to negotiate a slightly cheaper rate booking 2 rooms which is good for families. Just a nice highlands hotel really, good pub, good food, and slept well even with room on 'main' road.

Having stopped for lunch a couple of times over the years we thought we would try an overnight stay.
Biggest bed Ive ever seen.Hotel warm in all rooms including breakfast room, and we were the only guests that night.
Meals are always good here and for a small Hotel/Bar there is a huge choice.
Well worth a stopover, even if you dont stay.
These old Highland Hotels can be very hard to run(often cold and bland) but the owners here have done a good job, and are still upgrading.
Thanks for your hospitality.

I stayed with my partner at the beginning of October, we checked in for our 3 night stay at 2pm and were immediately shown to a lovely room with the biggest bed I have ever slept in!!!

The food was fab, we had a bar meal that night and it was brilliant, you must try the "Belly Buster" dessert (share, do not attempt on own!)

My poor boyfriend got ill for the rest of the stay, and the staff were fab offering to get food atken to the room for him, iced water on tap and a sympathetic ear in the morning at breakfast........BREAKFAST, it was excellent!

My only tiny criticism was my shower in the room, it was a wee bit tricky to work and get the balance of hot/cold water, I got a scalding on my last morning. But really not a huge issue as I have stayed in hotels that have had no hot water before and the bathroom was immaculate!

I would definitely recommend a stay at The Glen, it was relaxing, fun and fab food, service and the nicest staff ever!

We turned up at the Glen after 8pm on Sunday, having driven through the rain from the wilds of the Ardgour peninsula. We had not booked and the bar was very busy, but we were immediately shown to a table. The service was far speedier than I had anticipated, given how many people were dining, and the food was excellent. I had liver and onions, which is not easy to cook to perfection, but they had acheived this and it was absolutely delicious, as were the vegetables. My husband had chicken and leek pie, followed by a fabulous sticky toffee pudding (and he is a conisseur...).

The staff were all extremely efficient and friendly, and the bar is clearly a very popular choice for supper. We left restored, and I would certainly recommend the bar meals highly.

This was my first stay at The Glen Hotel, Newtonmore and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

The owners go the extra mile to ensure that you have a memorable stay, a lot of other hoteliers could learn a lot about putting the customer first from a stay at this hotel.

Food was to die for, live entertainment was really good.

The best night sleep that I have ever experienced in a hotel. The expensive beds were imported especially to ensure of the best sleep you could wish for.

All in all a fantastic stay and I will definately be back. That's a promise.

Thank you to Chris for a wonderful experience. It was a birthday weekend to remember.
