We spent the weekend here with two friends to celebrate a milestone and I have nothing negative to say about our entire stay! The location was lovely, the rooms were wonderful the staff were beyond professional and attentive and the food was a faultless culinary treat. The staff made us feel welcome and looked after us so well that it...

I treated my partner to this exquisite establishment. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a 5 star welcome this was followed with an excellent and relaxing afternoon tea...which was delicious. Glenapp offers all the grandeur of a 5 star castle without being pretentious. Dinner and the quality of food including service is fit for a Michelin star....

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and can thoroughly recommend it - the room was perfect, the food was outstanding and the service was to die for. It is more like a private country house than a hotel - no reception, no bar, no-one wanting you to sign anything throughout your stay and the maitre d' remembered what...

As this was to be the first Christmas without the Grandchildren as they were both spending Christmas with their partners families, my daughter and wife decided that it wouldn't be the same at our house and that we should go away. The two of them spent hours on the internet looking for somewhere special to stay and finally found Glenapp...

My spouse booked this as a surprise romantic getaway. This is just a beautiful, stunning place, and with unexpectedly fabulous food that still has me salivating months later (and I'm vegetarian and usually doomed to be hungry & undernourished when travelling). The service is exquisite. The place is next to a star-gazing location and very, very pretty.
