“Wedding experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

Got married earlier this year at Glasson Country house hotel, the experience was fantastic, The staff were so attentive and couldn't do enough for us or our guests. Everyone commented on the friendly waiting staff at dinner, the quality and quantity of food served and the views. We couldn't have asked for a more special and unique venue for our big day. Thank you to the Reid family and staff!

Stayed here with my husband and 16 month baby for 2 nights!
The staff bend over backwards to our every need, fantastic hospitality and customer service!!!
The golf course looked amazing but neither of us were golfers but we did enjoy the location and lovely walks surrounding the hotel!
The owners have thought very carefully when planning the rooms and bathroom everything is there that you would need!! I couldn't believe one day I had left my baby's clothes soaking In the sink due to food stains and when we returned the room service staff had cleaned and hung up his washing on the line!! Truly amazing hotel, would definitely recommend and return again!!!!

I was there a few weeks ago with a few friends. We spent two nights there and everything was perfect. The grounds of the Glasson hotel are absolutely beautiful - ideal location for a wedding or celebration. The rooms were in very good condition and very clean and there were absolutely no noise disturbances. The members of staff were very attentive, friendly, warm and helpful. They did all they could to make our stay as pleasant as possible and it was lovely. There was a very good selection for breakfast and the fresh brown bread was delicious!The atmosphere is very relaxed and the owners, the manager and the receptionists gave us a very warm reception.

Spent Saturday night in Glasson Country House Hotel celebrating my fathers 90th birthday. We had three beautiful rooms, all very comfortable, clean and decorated beautifully. We opted for the Bar Menu - lovely selection and everything we orders was delicious and good value for money. The views from the hotel are fabulous. Good selection for breakfast and very relaxed for a perfect sunny Sunday morning. The staff are to be complimented - very patient and gave us great attention. Thank you all. I'm spreading the good news today with all my work colleagues. Glasson Country House Hotel & Golf Club is a lovely place stay.

Recently celebrated a christening in glasson. Everyone enjoyed a fab meal , with great level of service. The views from the dinning area are simply incredible. The staff are due particular priase as no request was any trouble for them . Stayed in a very large family room on the 3rd floor which actually contained 2 separate rooms which was great when staying with young children. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

Celebrated our anniversary back where we had our wedding reception. Love going back to Glasson Hotel - Not only for the memories but also for the lovely welcome we always receive.

This time we had the 'casual dining experience' and enjoyed delicious a meal in the bar, great atmosphere.

In the morning we went for at nice stroll on the grounds and down to the lake, its beautiful.

Already looking forward to our next visit!

My husband and I visited this hotel on chance during our recent tour of Ireland, we found a gem. The staff were very helpful, our room was large and had wonderful views over the golf course, surrounding countryside and the lake The underfloor heating in the bathroom was a lovely touch. We would definitely stay here again.
