Very cosy and friendly hotel on a night when it was snowing outside. Will definately be back. Had a lovely evening meal and freshly cooked breakfast in the morning. Very clean and comfortable and very good value for the quality.

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing Glenesk Hotel for your stay. We value your comments very high and it was a pleasure for every member of staff to have both of you as our guests. With regards to our leisure facilities this is a big achievement for us to know that you experienced a great feeling of exclusivity. Our traditional menu is quite large and with regards to the price of food we are aware that it is not the cheapest, but as you noticed you can "taste the difference" and we can guarantee it is the freshest and of the highest quality ingredients delivered daily by our local suppliers. We watch the pricing very closely and keep it as reasonable as possible. Hayley and Matthew both extend their appreciation and are humbled by your comments. Again we all would like to thank you and hope to see you back very soon.

What a lovely find this hotel is! Myself and my partner spent the night here for a birthday treat and we were not disappointed. The staff were so helpful and very accommodating (special thanks to Chris and Mark). The food was delicious and served very quickly and we we were just disappointed we couldn't squeeze in a dessert as we were packed full. The building is lovely and the rooms are gorgeous. I would recommend a stay here to anyone as the value for money is top notch. Edzell is a very special place for us but we usually camp so from now on I think the tent will be left behind as this was just the most amazing, relaxed trip away we have had. The facilities were great too and a lovely dip in the pool before dinner was such a lovely way to unwind. I cannot praise this place enough and would definitely consider having our wedding here as we ended our trip by getting engaged, so romantic! Keep up the good work guys as you are all doing an amazing job and thanks for making our visit such a memorable one.

Room Tip: Don't look anywhere else, this is such a treasure! You will not be disappointed!

Having really only picked this hotel because of its proximity to Glen Esk, I would thoroughly recommend it for anyone looking for a place to stay in the Cairngorms at any time of year. I visited with my son for a long walking weekend in November and could not have had a more pleasant stay. The bedroom was large, clean and very well heated. Dinners were excellent and the menu was made up of high quality local dishes (I can recommend the haggis and neeps) and the staff were very friendly. I also enjoyed the indoor pool. The 1st floor room was on the road side but very quiet.

We stayed one night here as we were in the area to be in close proximity to family and we are so so glad we did. From the moment of arriving to the moment we left we were made to feel so welcome by the owner and his wife and staff. Our room (7) was fantastic -very very comfortable with more quality bits in the bathroom than we have found in any other hotel, even down to shoe shine, needles/threads, razor, toothbrush and small tubes of body lotion all beautifully displayed along with shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. The bathroom was really big with lovely white fluffy towels. An ironing board/iron was also in room along with a trouser press, oh, cant forget bathrobes and slippers. We sat in the lounge for a while with a lovely vino watching the TV. The bed is a super king and so so comfortable.
BREAKFAST - what can I say about this??? SCRUMPTIOUS -there was a great selection of yoghurts/cereals/fruit juice/preserves to choose from. Table service for tea/coffee/toast then THE COOKED BREAKFAST to die for!!! A menu for cooked breakfast for us to choose from. Served on an ashet plate which was well presented. My hubby had the smoked haddock but looked like there were two on the plate - perfectly cooked. This breakfast would be the best we have had in any hotel. Nothing was too much problem for the staff. I was only glad I didnt have any cereal before the cooked breakfast.
We had taken our swimming stuff with us but after breakfast we could hardly move and we had arrived a bit late the night before.
All areas we were in was spotlessly clean, saw staff cleaning the inner glass doors before we left.
I would HIGHLY recommend The Glenesk to anyone and we will certainly be back. Good Luck to Dylan and Elana for the future of The Glenesk and to the young man who was so lovely who looked after us with our drinks and breakfast.
Thank you all so much and hopefully we will see you all again in the New Year, Have a lovely Christmas
