I decided to give 5 Stars because there is really no way to fault this fantastic establishment. Everything was perfect down to a T. The staff go above and beyond , the rooms are Great and the food is absolutely a must try. Will definitely be back.
Wonderful service and meal. From the moment you arrive to the wonderful setting to when you leave you will love it. We had the 8 course meal. Excellent. Very high standard food and service. Travelling there by car is probably the best option. We opted for train and taxi there. From Glasgow central to Blantyre. Then a taxi from there. On the way back to Glasgow centre we opted for a taxi. £27.50
We stayed here for two nights when visiting Glasgow. Gorgeous place and rooms. The outside is gorgeous and worth a walk around as well. We ate dinner there the first night and wow - what an incredible 6 course meal. We had been traveling over 24 hours by the time we checked in that afternoon and what a way to start our trip to Scotland with the fantastic meal and service. Would definitely recommend - very close to Glasgow and all attractions.
Afternoon tea visit just fine, nothing to write home about. £35 a head, sandwiches were OK the cakes were fine and the pastries were allright. The place is lovely, a wee walk in the garden is a must. Champagne glasses are £15 each and we werent told until the bill so that wasnt great. Apart from that it was allright.
We stayed at the Crossbasket Castle for a couple of days. The castle is about 30 minutes from the city center and airport. The interiors of the castle are well maintained. The less said about the restaurant the better. I was not impressed. The castle/hotel has no workout facilities
This is truly a beautiful property. We are staying here now. It is truly a gem. The rooms are well appointed with a antique and modern furniture, bathroom is huge and so pretty with high end toiletries, there are no coffee and tea in the room, but they deliver the hospitality tray upon request with some cookies and milk. Beds are as expected- covered with luxurious linens and are very comfy Breakfast menu is extensive and luxurious and breakfast is included. The personal is simply wonderful . This is recently renovated, but well preserved beautiful mansion It is pricey and is a splurge but well worse it
Cannot recommend the lunch experience highly enough. Greeted at the door and shown to your table by very polite staff member. Menu provided and drinks order taken without fuss. While trying to decide on the menu options an amuse bouche is provided, well three little ones actually. That was the start of the excellent food experience. Three starters, three mains and three desserts on offer. May seem limited but I did get a phonecall the day before to check if there were any dietary requirements so I’m sure an alternative could be arranged if really necessary. The quality and presentation of the food is first class. The staff are very knowledgeable about the ingredients and are happy to talk through the makeup of the dishes. Absolutely no negatives about any of the food we had - pea veloute, duck terrine, chicken, sea bream, mango panna cotta and cheeseboard. Everything was well but not over seasoned. Everything tasted delicious. At the end of the meal petit fours are provided and needless to say they rounded the meal off perfectly. There is a very relaxed atmosphere, the staff are superb and the food fantastic. This will not be my last visit to Crossbasket.…
Upon arrival the magnificent castle was beautiful. Emma greeted us at the front and she was a true Gem.Slight mix up with room that Rob fixed quickly. A true castle experience.All the staff were great especially Jonathan in the lounge. A must if you want a true castle experience near Glasgow
We were greeted on arrival and escorted to a beautiful spacious room where we sat at a window table overlooking manicured gardens. Staff were friendly, courteous, helpful and beautifully and professionally attired. We were invited to choose a preferred type of tea from an extensive list. After a glass of delicious champagne we were presented with a three tiered tray of savoury bites, scones with cream and jam and delicious small cakes. Staff were attentive without being intrusive. I thoroughly recommend this elegant venue for a special celebration or treat.
We got married at Crossbasket in 2021 having a small wedding. We had previously visited the castle (prior to booking our wedding) and the service is the best we have received in Scotland. From booking our venue to the morning after our wedding the staff at Crossbasket were fantastic and couldn't do enough. The manager Rob, met us to show us around the castle when it wasn't officially open, he took the time to answer any questions we had and was fantastic. Vicki the wedding coordinator accommodated all of our requests and every member of staff went above and beyond on the day. We handed in a small bag of items which my husband planned to set up on the day, when he arrived every detail had been done for him. This allowed for a stress free enjoyable morning. We were married in the main castle and had our reception in the Stewart room. This suited our needs and despite covid restrictions at the time our day felt perfectly 'normal' (in line with the restrictions allowed). Our guests stayed in a few rooms which are huge and so comfy. We stayed in the Macintosh room which was stunning. My husband and I are looking forward to returning and staying again. The food was excellent with lots of choice and flavour. The roux menu is some of the nicest food we have ever had. We have since visited two ICMI properties and have to say they really set the standard for service and food across Scotland. We most recently stayed at Cromlix which similarly to Crossbasket had food to die for and service above the standard. This is something we highly recommend and we look forward to trying out other ICMI properties. Thank you to all the staff, if you are looking for a wedding venue (whether it be for 5 to 200 people!) we highly recommend this venue. Also to comment all of our suppliers had lovely things to say about the venue. Our makeup artist said it is her favourite venue to work with as they are so accommodating!…
