Gleddoch house is situated in a stunning location and could have some potentially amazing views! Unfortunately, the greenery blocked all the views except the one from the driveway. The drive up to the hotel was promising but needed a bit of a tidy. The foyer was lovely and the staff very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our room was adequate but over looked the bin area and patio of a private hire room, which wasn't particularly great but it was a last minute booking. However, the wedding party that were there on the Saturday night were quite noisy, which wasn't a problem at midnight but got a bit annoying by 2am.
Breakfast was a challenge!!! I'm Coeliac so need a Gluten free diet. On the first morning of our stay, I asked if they were able to cater for gluten free food and got a straightforward "no". The second morning was better and although they had nothing in, they promised to get in some GF toast for the next morning, which they did. The menu was ok but the room service menu was more limited.
The actual breakfast itself was very poor indeed and put us off eating the restaurant in the evenings. The kippers were dry and hard, the toast was cold, the scrambled eggs were very powdery and the poached eggs were over cooked! I didn't think it possible to go wrong with eggs, but clearly you can! There could have been more choice of fruit too. Maybe the addition of (nice) scrambled eggs and smoked Damon would have been nice too (after all we re in Scotland!)
The spa and pool facilities were fabulous! I booked in for a massage on the Saturday of our stay. It genuinely was the best massage I've ever had and I've had a few! The lady eas lovely nd very helpful and gave excellent advice too.
The pool and changing areas were very clean and the pool was warm.
There is a large gravelled area just outside the pool area that is not open to the public, but with a bit of money spent, the area would make a fabulous outdoor hot tub type area.
In general, the places needs updating, some TLC and some money throwing at it and could be an absolutely fantastic hotel!
But at present, it's a nice, comfy hotel with mostly apply, friendly and helpful staff. I'd definitely staff the breakfast chef though!!
