Stayed at the Glenisla nights of the 5th/6th August. Very impressed. Greeted on arrival by Graham who pre-booked our breakfasts, provided us with information on the near by bus services, especially the tips on having to tender the correct fare! The hotel is extremely clean and tidy. It is situated in a very quiet residential area but is only a matter of 2 - 3 minutes from the major bus routes into the city. Breakfast was prepared once you had been served served tea or coffee, and arrived at the table well served and piping hot. Nothing appeared to be to much trouble for Graham. My daughter wanted to surprise us with a large box of chocolates on our arrival, and Graham had duly obliged by buying them for her and leaving them for us. Quiet, well run hotel, with lots of attention to detail. Highly recommended !!
