    5/5 Excellent

    We book 2 family rooms for 2 adults and 5 children for my daughter birthday day out with her friend doing tree top chalenge at Go Ape Glentress. The girls end up in one room because they provide 2 double bed, double sofa bed and single bed in the room and still have plenty room for them to play board game at night. Dinner and breakfast is good. The girls enjoyed swimming pool, steam room and doing golf patting. Highly recommended for family

    The hotel is in need of refurbishment and the breakfast whilst tasty was shambolic.

    the spa is quite nice and there is a very good deal with golf . The quality and choice at breakfast is excellent although quite pricey. As for the negative aspects, my partner is a coeliac and the staff had this very clearly pointed out but failed to make sure she ate safely, as a result she was informed she was eating gluten in her breakfast whilst eating it. This was all the more shocking as we had already sent a plate back to the kitchen we knew was wrong, the rest of our break was ruined as my partner was ill with stomach problems. This break was a birthday treat for her and although offered a 2 day return with an upgrade (we stayed 4 nights) we are not sure we will take up the offer. Food safety is too important to get wrong, if you claim to cater for any food issues you must deliver.

    My seven day break

    Overall we enjoyed our stay, and would consider coming again. However; we were somewhat disappointed with the breakfast. Even though we enjoy buffet style breakfasts there are some issues we feel need to be addressed. The presentation and lay out of the hot buffet could be much better. In particular the bacon and fried eggs. Bacon was at times inedible for our standards ( lying in grease and over cooked. The fried eggs were sloppily replenished by emptying into the eggs which were already there. I appreciate this sounds very picky, but the hotel is rated as a four star! The room was very comfortable and clean. I enjoyed the pool which I used every morning. Finally, my wife and I have disabilities. My wife needs oxygen twenty fours a day, along with canisters and a concentrator. Therefore ideally an accessible room would be required.
