We went here today for afternoon tea and we go for a lot of afternoon teas all over the place. And this was the best tea we have had the 2 young lady's are so friendly. As for the sandwiches they give you a menu and you chose 2 sandwiches each they are made fresh while you wait and they are very fresh. The cakes well I am lost for words just lovely and once again so fresh and presented so well. the scones are warm and once again very fresh thank you for the best afternoon tea we have ever had patricia garrett

Dear patricia503790

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review on the Quality of our Afternoon Tea.

I am so pleased you enjoyed the afternoon tea. We pride ourselves on giving our customers service and choice, on the filling for their sandwiches and using fresh ingredients. Not a cucumber in sight! Watch out for the return of our Christmas Afternoon tea later in the year.

Best wishes

Have just spent one night at the Gleneagles Guesthouse, we were attending a 60th Birthday Party at the Cliff Pavillion. Few minutes walk to venue, only few minutes into town. Bedroom was lovely overlooking the sea. Plenty big ehough for two. Breakfast was amazing, didnt eat till the evening as it filled us up. Staff were lovely and friendly. Had parking permit which saved a fortune. Well done Gleneagles will recommend you to all.

Room Tip: Our room faced the sea and was lovely.

Stayed for 1 night in May. Excellent location. Hotel owner very friendly, rooms clean and well stocked. Excellent cooked breakfast. Given use of a parking permit for 2 days which saved us over 20 quid in parking fees. Highly recommended, would definitely stay here again.

I've stayed here on two occasions now and both times have been great. Garry and Penny are lovely and welcoming with great advice on where to eat. Making a real effort to make the stay a home away from home. Thank you.

We set ourselves apart by treating you as a Guest in our home and not a Room Number. We also pride ourselves on the quality of our produce and take care to source suppliers or produce from the local economy wherever possible. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Thanks again
