What a gem. We stayed here for three nights with a couple of friends as part of their wedding anniversary celebration. From the moment you enter the gates, rest and relaxation hits you. The staff are incredibly professional and friendly and make you feel at home immediately. Every room is tastefully luxurious. A lovely touch that dog treats were left... More

Just returned from Lunch at Glenapp, what a wonderful experience. EVERY detail was perfection, from the warm welcome on arrival,all through lunch and the walk through the gardens. Absolutely magnificent, post refurb everything is immaculate. We were given a tour of one of the rooms which match and surpass anything I have seen in some of the best hotels in... More

As a Christmas treat i booked afternoon tea at Glenapp. We had an absolutely wonderful time. From the minute we were welcomed at the entrance to the moment we left we received first class customer service. The food was delicious and plentiful. My favourites were the butternut soup, the marvellous veggie "sausage" roll and the raspberry jam. Hats off to... More

The food was amazing, one of the best meals I've had! Comparable to many top Michelin Star restaurants, but with Glenapp you have the added benefit of being in stunning surroundings full of character and charm. The service was impeccable, the team really want to make your visit memorable and they certainly achieved this with me - I will definitely... More

We had a lovely family meal at Glenapp. We had the set menu and asked them to do a wine flight with it which was of course fantastic. The staff were great, the attention to detail was second to none. The food was cooked fantastically. And we were even given a lift back to the cottage we were staying at.... More

Arriving at Gelnapp you feel that there is something really special behind the high steel wrought iron gates. A 3 minute drive up road between the trees and gardens the entrance is like Downton Abbey where the staff await your arrival at the entrance. The staff were few however super impressive and top class. My wife and I travel extensively... More

The meal was very good though not fantastic - ie 4 star rather than 5! Waiting staff were excellent -friendly and attentive without being overly so. Formal decor and log fire - lovely. Only downside was lack of atmosphere in the restaurant. We were the only people for quite a while and no music so not quite as relaxing as... More
