My wife, mother in law and I stayed here on the second night of a night tour of Scotland. We were lucky enough to experience 5 lovely places to stay. The Glen hotel looks good from the outside and the warm Yorkshire welcome from the Landlord did not disappoint.
The rooms are very well appointed and facilities very comfortable. Good size comfortable double bed with comfy chairs and flat screen TV. Bathroom was ample sized with good walk in shower.
We took an evening meal at the Glen and was offered this in the bar area or the quieter dining room. We chose the dining room. The food was lovely with ample portions and good value for money. The breakfast next morning had good choice and once again excellent value and served promptly, politely and hot. It's amazing what you find in these small villages. At the end of the street are the 'Dancing Waters' something we had seen once before in Florida. A 45 minute show of coloured waters dancing to music in a small theatre holding approx 70-100 people. Well worth a visit at around £3.
No hesitation in recommending The Glen hotel.
