I have stayed at Glenshiel twice in the last six months and my only disappointment is that it was for only one night each time as I used it as a stop on the way to the Kruger Park. the Hotel is located on a hill with magnificent views over the valley. and it's gorgeous when the mist rolls in. There are also gorgeous walks to be taken through the forest.
The service is impeccable - in fact the staff easily remembered us and we were given the same room we had previously stayed in, which is huge, lovely and quiet. On our second stay we were a large group, arriving at different times and the staff were so friendly and accommodating, waiting patiently until everyone had arrived before serving dinner.
The food is delicious with very generous portions. In fact be careful that you don't burst from all the food you get for breakfast.
I will certainly be back and this time I will stay for much longer.
