The reception staff and restaurant staff were just wonderful; they were very friendly which made us feel welcomed. There is free in-room Wi-Fi, comfortable beddings , and... More

Cannot fault the food or service here and we travelled over 20km just to have our dinner and really appreciate the food. Best steak in a 20km radius Excellent prices on the set menu even the kids talk about the food here and want to return and that speak volumes from children.

Have been to The Glenside for food before with no complaints. However on 26/04/2015 my opinion drastically changed. Got chicken from the carvery selection and as it was covered in bacon I didn't mind pink on the chickens surface. However during eating myself and my partner found this pink turned to pink/red in the middle/inside. I immediately contacted a waitress... More
