Came here for a relaxing break with a friend & it was just that! The staff are all really friendly, great pool/sauna/Jacuzzi area & great games room. Our room was really good value and very spacious & clean. Only thing is though the food was a little expensive, but was well served & could not fault it. Would definitely recommend.

We were visiting Edzell as my partner's father was in hospital undergoing an operation. We arrived early at the Glenesk as we had been around Edzell for quite... More

Working in the oil and gas industry I have stayed in a few hotels in the area and this is by far the nicest. Myself and two colleagues stayed here in May and were struck by the attentive and friendly staff who made the whole time a pleasant one. The building retains many original features with the added facilities of... More

Great place to stay after a long days drive. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. I stayed after a busy day working in the area. Breakfast was excellent and nothing appears to be too much trouble for the busy staff. They are a credit to the hotel. Will stsy again when in the area.

I stayed at this hotel early on in the year on a business trip. When I planned to come back up to this area on business there was no doubt I would stop here again. Once again, the service was excellent, the food very good, the room extremely comfortable. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay... More

The reception and waiting staff couldn't be more friendly at the Glenesk, and compensated for much of the other disappointments. We were advised that breakfast finished at 10.00 hrs on Saturdays; yet, when I arrived (with other guests) at 09.55 (having had a weekend lie-in) we were told the chef had decided breakfast was finished! This is not a spot... More

Dear Reviewer, I really do not know if you are weird, sad, or just downright disrespectful! You were invited here as part of a sad but joyous occasion for the remembrance of who can only be described as a lovely chap listening to everyone. He and his daughter had a long standing connection to the Hotel, so for you to... More
