We went to the concert in Montrose and decided to stay the weekend here. The room was lovely, the food really good and the service amazing. The facilities were good with a pool, steam room , sauna and hot tub. We will be back.

What would you pay for a hotel that offered a delightful ensuite room, fantastic staff, a great restaurant, a well-stocked bar (including more than 400 malt whiskeys), gym, sauna, steam room, swimming pool and billiard room? Oh, and it overlooks the golf links? The Glenesk Hotel offers all of these (and more) at less than the price of a Premiere...

Visited for a weekend stay with my partner. Staff members were more than helpful organising a distillery tour of the nearby Fettercairn Distillery.

Firstly, this place has very good staff, and that counts for a lot. The restaurant is good; it’s a bit pricey but that’s probably justified. There is a good offering of cooked breakfasts. The building itself is mixed. It was built as a hotel in Victorian times and has apparently had a lot of money spent on refurbishment recently. There...
