Stayed one night at this hotel which is large and caters for coach parties. Our room was comfortable and clean and the staff were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was served quickly and was enjoyable; would go back

I have to first say again I was impressed with the drivers of the shearing coach. Very professional and informative. On arrival at the hotel the check in was quick and the reception staff very friendly and professional. I had a single room with a sea view which I didn't pay any extra to have I was lucky to be...

My wife and I are regular travellers with National Holidays and I always try to book with Bay Hotels. This is one of the best we have been to, we had a good size room, clean and reasonably well equipped except for an old TV. The meals were very good, our waitress Barbara was friendly and helpful, in fact we... More

My wife & I stayed at this hotel recently on a weekend self drive break. Found first room No 412 allocated on ground floor level at rear of hotel in " Wemyss Wing" quite disappointing. This room looked on to garages, rubbish storage bins, & smoking area. Despite net curtain on window we felt our privacy was being impeded by... More

Well to start off with this was our first ever coach trip so we didn't know what to expect.(A family with a 7 year old girl) The Hotel itself is situated overlooking some stunning scenery and looks great. Its a short walk from Rothesay (about 10mins walk) but it could be a problem if people have mobility issues as its... More

Just spent a return visit to the Glenburn Hotel,my how this has been revamped since our last visit.The staff decor and the whole place has vastly improved.The holiday was spoiled however by an overbearing driver(Billy)who spoke to his passengers as though they were schoolchildren and his whole attitude was uncalled for.

Okay for the money we paid. Food at breakfast was decent. The service at reception was fine. The cabaret entertainment was quite good. The entertainment bar was very modern and obviously has had the most money spent on it. The rooms obviously hadn't been upgraded since the 1970s but we expected that for £39 for a room. A decent enough... More

Another great value for money holiday with Shearings. The hotel is a beautiful building. Lovely rooms, most with a sea view, clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful, nothing was a problem. Would definitely go back. Special thanks to Paul, our waiter, he made our holiday even more enjoyable.

This was our first Shearing's Coach Holiday. Aged 58 my husband and I decided to give one of these holidays a try. We really wanted to have a relaxing short break and have everything done for us for a change. To be fair, it wasn't really a bad experience but not an experience we wish to repeat in the too...

Just got back from the Glenburn after a 3 night stay with Shearings. The hotel is the best Bay hotel we have stayed in (and we have been to many). The views are spectacular, the staff very friendly, the food and entertainment good . We thought Paul the resident compere was brilliant with a voice worthy of much better things.... More
