We had previously stayed in this hotel 18 months ago and enjoyed it very much. The only thing that slightly let it down was the shabbyness of the rooms and some public areas. We returned on the 12th of May for 3 nights and what a difference, still beautiful grounds and the downstairs bar, lounge and library have had a...

I'm really sorry, but we are all somewhat confused by the content of your posting. We do have 2 dining rooms, the smaller of which is only used on a Saturday, for guests solely booking for dinner, and who have the exact same menu as those in the main dining room, so I think to misrepresent the dining arrangements, and...

Stayed at the Glenburn for 2 nights (19/5/17-21/5/17) and thought it was a very impressive building. Was not disappointed when I entered , downstairs is beautifully decorated and looks very grand. Loved sitting in the library area of lounge. Dining room is massive and there is waiter/waitress service at all meals. My room , not a refurbished one, was very...

My friend and I are working our way around the Bay hotels. Our first visit was to the wonderful Bay Royal in Whitby and with the 10% voucher from this visit we chose the Glenburn Hotel on Bute. The luxury of waiter service for breakfast and dinner was very welcome. The bedroom had a sea view to die for. The...

This hotel and it's location are truly magnificent. The grounds belonging to the hotel are kept pristine and it's lovely to sit on the terrace and watch the ferry go to and fro. The hotel has an air or ambience and class. We travelled as a family of five for four nights with Shearing's on a DBB basis. You need...

Stayed here as a couple for one night on 08/05/2017. We payed £60 for a double room via booking.com (it was over £100 i think but price came down nearer the time). my partner was hesitant staying here as she had previously stayed a few years ago thought it was badly run down. The hotel has recently been taken over...

Hotel is getting an ongoing makeover, much needed but very welcome indeed, great setting, very friendly and observant staff, decent bar menu and drinks not too expensive, entertainment mediocre but hotel restaurant and relaxing fine dining is very good, haven't stayed so cannot comment on rooms etc, overall nice hotel, helpful staff and relaxing surroundings.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Exuding an air of grandeur and charm, this impressive Victorian sandstone Hotel was built in 1892. Set in an outstanding position above its own terraced gardens, the Glenburn enjoys a superb panorama across the waters of Rothesay Bay to the Cowal Peninsula. Step inside the hotel and you'll be greeted by spacious well-proportioned rooms which offer a level of comfort which should immediately put you at ease. With a wealth of outdoor pursuits on the isle, from fishing to bowling and from golf to walking, it's up to you how you choose to relax at the Glenburn... socialise in the bar, escape to the quiet lounge, indulge in a game of snooker or just enjoy the evening entertainment. The town's shops, harbour, medieval castle ruins and sporting facilities are just a pleasant walk away along the palm fringed promenade. The hotel contains some guest parking which is located at the front and side of the building. The Hotel is about to embark on a major renovation on bedrooms and ground floor lounges due for completion by February 2017. ... more   less
