Lovely setting, shame about the bland food and quantity on a Christmas Party Night. Alot of money for not alot of food . Won't be rushing back as felt quite like was an inconvenience to the bar people when ordering drinks.
I have stayed here many times as it’s located in the perfect position for striking into pretty much anywhere in the Glasgow area without being in the city. Has easy parking which is fine for larger vans too. This is a hotel I routinely request from our booking agent. Normally this would be a 4/5 but sadly not this visit. I was in a room I’ve never been in before and was disappointed, wardrobe door hanging off, several sockets and switches didn’t work, room was a bit tired with run down furniture, bathroom had broken tiles etc. food was excellent as usual and staff were friendly and helpful well up to the usual standard if a little distracted in the bar dining area by the World Cup which I suppose in understandable (not a fan personally). I’m back again for almost a week and hope to be as happy next visit as usual😊. Still recommend as a value for money place to stay and have advised several colleagues to come who are staying next week too.…
Often drop in here for a quick lunch with colleagues or customers as it is close to our office and you can easily park. Always good quality food, generous portions and attentive and friendly staff. Would recommend.
From the lady who checked us in to the gentleman on duty at 7.30am and all the bar restaurant and kitchen staff everyone was so friendly and helpful. The restaurant served us breakfast early on our last day. Requests for items not on the menu were provided. You should be so proud of all your staff. Our room whilst clean warm and comfortable was in need of a little TLC. The shower tray had a large chip and something had been removed from the bedroom wall and the holes just left. Also the shower head is fixed at a high level and as it was not adjustable a shower cap would have been useful for those of us who are not so tall and don't want to have wet hair. The food was very good.
I was a little disappointed when i arrived at reception and really quite shocked at the decor in my room. Very Ugly. I booked it through a work portal so this may impact room allocation. I went to the bar and could not believe how gorgeous that whole area is. The staff were superb and i was really impressed with the service. I mentioned the contrast between the room and bar and was told that the new owners had to stop refurbishments due to the pandemic. I instantly understood. I went for breakfast and the gent gave me such a welcome and his service was also impeccable. Lovely people.
Stayed here prior to us going abroad, only half a hour from Glasgow airport. We booked a double room, room was lovely and airy. Had dinner great menu and the food was lovely. Breakfast well what can I say, it’s the best meal to set you up for the day, absolutely brilliant couldn’t fault it, we didn’t eat again until teatime as that full. Great hotel will be using again. Thank you well done.
Disappointed in the condition of the room. Pictures not the same on the website. The room was a bit dated and tired and needs to be renovated to a higher standard for the price I paid. My colleagues in the main hotel paid less than me for a higher quality room. Wallpaper hanging off, sink plug faulty and dirty to mention a few faults!
Stayed at The Castlecary for 3 nights B&B whilst visiting family in the area. We normally stay at a nearby Premier Inn but there was no availability so we booked here. What a great hotel, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had a lovely big room but it was nice and quiet. The room was serviced every day with fresh towels each time. Breakfast was great and there was plenty of choice, there was juice, tea, coffee, cereal, fruit, yogurt, cheese, ham & toast. You helped yourself to all this and then ordered your cooked breakfast items from a menu. The hot food was well cooked and always hot. The bar area was nicely done out and there was plenty of car park spaces. The Castlecary will now be our go to hotel when next visiting family.
Lovely place, recently had money spent on the decor. Menu stayed the same for 6 months at least so looking forward to the change. Menu description was good but the chef can't quite execute it. Allows dogs in the beer garden but not inside which is crazy considering they have a separate bar area to the restaurant. Hopefully that changes before the end of summer.
I visited the restaurant at Castlecary House Hotel with family for a birthday lunch on Sunday 9th October 2022. Hopes were high as the venue looked beautiful and was lovely and clean. Hopes were reduced when I saw the very limited vegan menu (not entirely a surprise, and there is a promise of a more "exciting" menu in the new year). Great to know as I choose between my two dishes. I opted for vegetable pate to start and both mains featured roasted vegetables so I chose one - a Roasted Veg Wellington. To be fair all the other food for the carnivores looked great, dozens to choose from - most annoying I wasn't even allowed the chips! But my pate was awful. The pate itself was OK - pretty tasteless, but OK. The bread - 2 slices of dry, hard, dusty white bread which was far from fresh and was pretty horrible. How sad when bread can be utterly fantastic when it wants to be. The salad leaves were very brown on the edges - some were not edible. They must have been cut at least the previous day if not before (this was also true of some other dishes). Expectations for my main were now low and in this regard it did not disappoint. An incongruous pile of things which looked like someone remembered last minute that they'd better scrape together a couple of vegan options. The Wellington might have been OK, but I couldn't tell because it was drowned in a load of pasta type sauce - itself very well flavoured, but which had turned the puff pastry to soggy mush. I mean who does that!!! I don't actually know what was inside the Wellington, but it was more mush. It came with green beans which were for me under-cooked, but I do acknowledge some like them this way, and a pile of boring as can be boiled, flavourless potatoes, some of which had actually begun to sprout things. How I longed for some of the chips the rest of my family were enjoying (yes chips are of course vegan, but not when fried alongside dead animal bits). Vegans get a rough deal - it would be incredibly easy to offer a selection of nice things which suit everybody, even with the option of tweaking either way but this really was a fairly expensive joke. Not a chance I would return unless there was a significant change to the menu with dishes made by someone who actually understands food. I only awarded 2 stars not 1 because the others' food really looked good and they all said it was.…
