Just back from a three-night stay at the Glenesk. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff could not have been more helpful. It is obvious that a lot of money has been spent on the hotel over the last few years and it seems to be a work which is still in progress - electricians were on...

Put simply, this charming hotel lives up to its review billings and offers the haven that weekender travellers often seek. We stayed for one night and enjoyed immensely the eclectic style and relaxing vibe. There is no corporate gloss here; instead, from the delightful bedroom, through the charming pool and hot tub, to the excellent restaurant amd astonishingly well-stocked bar,...

We were stayed here as part of a family birthday celebration with several other couples. I'd heard stories about the whisky selection but didn't appreciate just how much they have...! The hotel looks OK from the outside and the interior decor is traditional and the rooms are lovely. They've clearly spent some time and money on the rooms. While the...

Had a lovely evening meal with my wife. The food was great and the staff were very good. Then retired to the bar, which was fantastic! It had at least one single malt from every Scottish distillery. The prices were good and the bar man very knowledgable and friendly. They also held a wide range of vodka and craft gin,...

Excellent staff and great whisky collection. A wee gem of a hotel. Old style town with the feel of times gone by. All the modern amenities alongside a great place to get away from it all, sample a few drams and maybe swing a golf club or explore the countryside.

We last visited Edzell over 26 years ago and were apprehensive about a return. The Glenesk Hotel was a wonderful link to all our best memories. The Hotel has been beautifully maintained without losing any of its true old world charm and comfort. We were delayed and did not arrive until 3:15 AM, but we were met as tired travelers...
