This is a beautiful Hotel from the Victorian era. The floorboards creaked a little and the bedroom rooms felt a little bit tired. However the food was very nice and the service was friendly and engaging. The Hotel building itself gives an outstanding experience. It is blended into the sea and mountains in a way that suggests that at the... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on our site. It seems a pity that this happened on your visit at the Glenburn as by all accounts you enjoyed what the hotel had to offer. What I would say I would always recommend if guests have any issues i.e noise they should always come to reception and... More

This old pile holds a commanding position overlooking Rothesay Bay, the ferries below cutting a white foam upon the water. And it's a quiet place, of the Old School. The rooms are just large enough, with decent size bathroom, and fairly good mattresses on the two beds within. The biggest drawback for a Yank who is used to a shower... More

Thank you for your posting we really do appreciate getting your feedback. By all accounts you enjoyed your stay with us apart from not having a shower. We only have a few rooms like this so if you do decide to book with us again I would recommend asking for a room with a shower to avoid disappointment. More

Have just spent five days at the Glenburn Hotel and all I can say is if people complain there is something wrong with them. Admittedly it is looking a bit tired in places but it is spotlessly clean and the food and service was first class.We were lucky to have a room on the third floor with a view over... More
