The hotel is lovely, the spa facilities are excellent and the food is spectacular (special mention and thanks to chef Phil who cooked us the most amazing meal on our last night at the Glenesk). The staff are all wonderful, really friendly and welcoming, and nothing is too much trouble to make sure your stay is perfect, 5* customer service....

I booked this hotel as a last minute DBB night away with my wife. Stayed for one night, could not believe the quality. Every member of staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating, the facilities were excellent and our room and indeed the hotel was spotless. It is difficult to find a fault with our stay - will be back!
