We had a family wedding with both the ceremony and reception being held here. It was a perfect day! Staff were fantastic from the planning stages up to the day itself. Could not have asked for better service as well as getting excellent value for money. Many 'extras' at other venues are included in the overall cost here. Would recommend... More

We duly arrived for the first night latish in the afternoon and were informed by the receptionist that on the second night of our stay they had a birthday party in the Function suite... More

The hotel is excellent from the reception staff who were very good to the bar staff. When we arrived all the registration forms were ready just to sign and get the room key. I would recommend room four which is an executive room which is absolutely huge the room and decor were very clean and tidy. We where there for... More

I have been staying at the Gilvenbank on and off (more on then off) for the last three and a half years with work and have always found it welcoming and friendly. The rooms are always clean and the showers are really powerful, unlike some where the water 'dribbles' out. The meals in the restaurant are of good quality although... More

Service was prompt - only us 3 in. Placed order. My Arbroath smokies fishcakes arrived with a 'sour smell' noticed by myself... More

We stayed here Dec/Jan for 2 weeks. It was recommended to us as being friendly and good value, which it certainly was. We got to know the many staff here and they really made our stay so much better. The rooms are a decent size with a desk and chair and slimline tv. Internet is also included which was necessary... More

Staying in the festive mood(we have been out several times over the past ten days) we decided to visit our regular haunt on Sunday as opposed to cooking a roast for two at home. To our pleasant surprise we were able to order turkey soup for starters, which was delicious and so apt for this time of year. An even... More
