Searched with some difficulty for a suitable hotel when meeting a group of German friends at Glengoyne Distillery - they were here for two nights in Glasgow but we wanted somewhere near the distillery. Finally settled for the Best Western Buchanan Arms in Drymen for DBB and was pleasantly surprised. Our large front room (one window to the side, two to the front) and huge double bed was impressive even if the furniture was a bit dated. Night time was noisy mainly because of our room position at the top of the creaky stairs and boisterous wedding guests. There was a wedding on in the hotel so the place was busy which added to the atmosphere. Pre-dinner drinks in the busy bar was 'entertaining' and our allowance of £20 each for dinner let us pick anything we wanted from the menu. The meal was very good, well presented, warm and tasty. Service was provided by a friendly staff who were chatty and helpful. Breakfast was buffet style, okay, but we would have preferred table service. I had to request a fried egg, only scrambled offered in the lukewarm buffet. The staff again were friendly and helpful. Reception arrival and leaving was also friendly and informative - all in all a more than adequate, enjoyable stay in a friendly hotel. We didn't sample the spa and I wonder what it would have been like if the hotel hadn't been so busy with wedding guests. £160 for the night DBB may be considered a wee bit expensive considering the meal allowance was only £20 - and a wee moan from my wife - the mirror in the room was not in the proper place for the hairdryer!! Well done to all the staff on a busy weekend.
