My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary in this lovely spot. we booked one of the executive suites and had a lovely late afternoon glass of champagne in front of the cosy log fire. Service was excellent. Lovely little touches... petals on the dinner table, chocolate mints in the shape of a heart when we went back to... More

The Glenshiel Hotel presents itself as a 'country lodge' and that's exactly what it is: a large, rambling farmhouse-style main building with rooms arranged in a courtyard around the back. There aren't very many rooms but they are absolutely huge: a suite, rather than a room is what we had (#4). I suppose it is expensive in the context of... More

We stayed at the Glenshiel in October for our anniversary weekend. Hotel OK. Definitely no longer 4star, maybe many years ago. Rooms large and clean, however all the rooms smelled like smoke because of the fire places in the rooms. However we were there during a summer month and it still had that smell. The food was totally average. The... More

We had a wonderful getaway and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Yes the rooms are tastefully decorated, and the beds delightfully comfortable and the roaring fireplaces inviting BUT what makes the hotel are the staff. Warm, friendly and accommodating of your every need. Meals are a delight and the chef goes out of his way to accommodate the "little"... More

What a stunning place! Huge open fire in beautifully decorated bedrooms, the best linen, incredibly comfortable beds. Staff were unbelievably good. Food delightful, epic breakfast. We will be returning soon-we dropped in on the off chance they would have availability and they were so accommodating! Great price-I would have happily paid double! See you soon and big thank you!

If traveling from Pretoria to the Kruger Park area, the Glenshiel Hotel is a nice accommodation along the way. The staff is warm and welcoming. If there is a chill in the air, you will find a roaring fire in your room along with a comfortable bed. There is a nice variety of food and they will even prepare special... More

I have stayed at Glenshiel twice in the last six months and my only disappointment is that it was for only one night each time as I used it as a stop on the way to the Kruger Park. the Hotel is located on a hill with magnificent views over the valley. and it's gorgeous when the mist rolls in....

We stayed at Glenshiel for one night on our way to the bush and what a treat. We were arriving late but the staff were extremely accommodating. A delicious 4 course dinner was served on arrival in front of a roaring fire. Service was spot on at all times. Comfortable beds with devine log fires. In the morning a delicious... More
