We stayed for two nights in Jan and opted for the bed breakfast and dinner package. The staff were so welcoming and helpful. The food was delicious with excellent friendly service. The coal fire enhanced the welcoming atmosphere as did the extensive choice of whiskeys and gin. Gym swimming pool and billiard room all looked inviting. We will be back

Seventeen member of my family thoroughly enjoyed our pre Christmas meal at The Glenesk Hotel. The room had just the right amount of Christmas decorations and the table was beautifully set. Everyone's meal was perfect. Not even one small complaint. They did extremely well by accommodating my autistic nephew and gave him the food combination that he was happy with....

Visited yesterday evening for a Christmas meal with colleagues and again today for a festive afternoon tea with my husband. Lovely welcoming atmosphere, roaring fire, friendly and efficient staff and the food was amazing. Highly recommended. Now that we live locally this may very well become a regular haunt and we look forward to spending time there.

Had an overnight visit to the Glenesk Hotel. All staff we met were very polite and friendly. The Dinner & breakfast were both superb! Nice big clean room on ground floor. Only negative would be the noise disturbance from guests leaving very early in the morning (approx 6am) which we could hear in our room, so maybe a room on...

A warm welcome followed by a warm Saturday night stay. Cosy fires in all the public areas, really nice staff and an excellent evening meal. The 360 degree bar is a real treasure trove.
