We have had a lovely stay the staff have been very friendly nothing is too much trouble. The room is a very good size and well equipt and the bed is very comfortable. The only negatives is the misleading photographs and the star rating. The curtains in the bedroom don't fit well and let a lot of light in. Overall... More

After spending the day climbing Mount Keen we were looking for a refreshing pint and something to fill the stomachs of five hungry climbers. we were not disappointed the meal was very nice and the beer went down a treat. Nice friendly staff what more could you want.

We spent a lovely evening at this hotel on Sat.14th June. Very welcoming staff, a delicious meal beautifully served and musical entertainment from the very talented duo, Collins & Johnston, who created a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere. Great to see this hotel being brought back to its former glory.

We have just spent a wonderful family weekend here. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and our (newly renovated) room was extremely comfortable, stylish and filled with lots of lovely little extras. It was our first time here but we were welcomed like old friends! We're looking forward to our next visit already!

We stayed in the Glenesk hotel from 13 to 15 June. The hotel is in the process of redecoration and looks lovely. The rooms were very clean and had been recently decorated. The food was excellent and we enjoyed a lovely meals throughout our stay. I would recommend the hotel to anyone staying in the Edzell area.
