My fiancé and I have visited this hotel several times in the past, this is the first time we have stayed overnight. The room was basic but adequate. Our only complaint was the room (104) stank of smoke, after complaining about this at reception we were informed that there were no other rooms available. We are both ex-smokers but the... More

We attended a family function here in September and what a let down. The service was sporadic, slow and very cool. There was neither smile nor joviality from the waiting staff. They seemed to totally disinterested in their tasks. The food was at best mediocre. Basic to bad presentation. We had been there on a number of occasions in recent... More

The Glenside looked after my son and daughter in laws wedding yesterday. What a performance! The staff were excellent. The food was excellent. The attention to detail was excellent. The entire day was faultless. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Would highly recommend The Glenside.

Unfortunately service poor as the hotel runs on a limited number of staff. Staff pleasant and helpful but they are over worked and under pressure. Owner needs to address staffing issues and value the passing business.
