“A REAL GEM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Just off the M8 on the banks of the River Clyde , this former baronial home exudes class and sophistication for its guests . Lovely spacious wood lined public areas including a bar filled with character. Attentive and enthusiastic staff . Really excellent menu and wide ranging wine list. Plenty of parking and things to do at the Spa and golf course. One of my very favourites in Scotland

Room Tip: All rooms are individual due to the building's layout

Had another dinner at Cristal Restaurant last night. The meal was excellent - started with a perfect cheese soufflé, and then the rump of lamb which was absolutely delicious. This hotel is always so welcoming, all the staff are friendly and helpful, led by the charming and professional manager Adrian. It's a real pleasure to spend time there.

We stayed in the honeymoon suite as it was out wedding. The whole day was there and myself, my bridesmaid and my Mum stayed the night before the big day. Gorgeous venue, attentive and amazing staff and a simply amazing wedding venue! Wish I could do it all again! Been back since on many occasions and it never disappoints... Can't wait to go back for our anniversary next year! Hopefully a wee cheeky nights stay before that too, we just love the venue so much!!! Well done to all the team, you always make us feel so special xxx

We have just spent another fantastic weekend at our favourite Scottish hotel.
From the moment you arrive you simply relax. The hotel and setting is stunning but what makes it so special is the staff. They are efficient, professional, attentive and really make you feel as if you are an important guest.
The food is always delicious and for us this is a big reason for returning again and again.
We have travelled extensively around the world but Mar hall always feels like a home from home.

visited on Saturday for Afternoon Tea, it was a wonderful experience. Beautiful settings and the afternoon tea was fabulous. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Cakes and sandwiches were very tasty. All in all a great time was had, it was a nice change from Saturday lunch.

There was a wedding taking place and it was great to watch.

The only disappointing thing was the toilets - they were beautiful but only two!!

I visited the Spa, and I would just like to compliment the staff for making my day feel like
the benefit of a weeks holiday. I am going through a very stressful
time at work (aren't we all!) and just woke up on my day off needing to seriously chill.
I called the Spa and was lucky enough to speak to Amy Watson who is a
credit to the Spa. She was so helpful, asked me what I was looking for
and made suggestions to what I might like.

When I arrived, Amy talked me through what my day would be, and I
started to relax immediately. I have visited the spa on previous occasions,
and I have tried many other Spas - all only once, as I kept coming back to Mar Hall.

I spent time in the tranquility room, had a swim/sauna/steam and
relaxed by the pool. After lunch (which was beautiful) I had another chill reading my
book. By the time I was due my actual treatment, I was surprised how
relaxed I was already. I then had a back massage and facial by Zoe,
who asked what I was looking for from the treatment, and got it spot on.

I have to say the service was first class, all the staff were very courteous, helpful and friendly. Amy in particular couldn't have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble for her and she
will have clients returning again and again. I haven't stopped talking
about it, my friends will all be coming, and I certainly will be returning very soon.

My husband and I recently spent an overnight stay at mar Hall which included dinner and breakfast. What an enjoyable experience the staff are all so attentive but not intrusive. I have to say the girl on reception (Hanifa) was exceptionally pleasant and so helpful. We had a lovely room and so spacious and had everything you would need and more for a stay overnight.We had a pre dinner drink in the bar which was so relaxing and cosy and then a lovely meal in Cristal Restaurant. We ordered breakfast to arrive at our room next morning...it was lovely. Will definitely be back as it was so relaxing and could have stayed longer.Thank you all at Mar Hall.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 32...great as you do not hear a thing.
