Just had the most perfect birthday weekend at this wonderful hotel. Cannot recommend it enough, small but perfectly formed. Lovely clean room, fantastic attentive staff, beautiful food. Would like to thank Carolyn in particular who managed to squeeze us in to the tribute night at the last minute and came to our table to personally wish me a happy birthday. Leo the night receptionist/barman who very kindly got us one last drink and Paul (the manager I think) who personally took the first part of our breakfast order and came back several times to check everything was ok. In all honesty all of the staff are fantastic, could not be any more helpful or pleasant. The birthday card and chocolates in our room was also a lovely touch. would recommend this hotel to anyone and I cannot wait until our next visit.

Stayed here for a family wedding in the premises. Fully expected the usual run of the mill wedding venue... and we're very ,very, very pleasantly surprised! Tastefully decorated throughout, spotlessly clean room, tasty food and above all excellent, professional, friendly staff. Every single one of them. From housekeeping to duty manager, every one of the staff members couldn't have been more helpful. Nothing but compliments from us for Team Eglinton Arms, keep up the fantastic work!

We stayed here for 2 nights recently,nice quiet location in viliage, lovely food with very friendly staff. Rooms on the smaller side, but comfortable and well equipped. Would use this Hotel again if in the area.

My Daughter had bought us vouchers for the Eglinton Arms for our Christmas, and decided to use them for a meal with our granddaughter, and booked in advance. We were shown to our table, and given menus and drinks order taken, drinks arrived quickly, and our orders taken, all three main meals were well presented, and freshly cooked, I had the haddock done in bread crumbs and was perfect, the hand cut chips were very taste, although very small portion for price paid, my wife had the half roast chicken and again well cooked, granddaughter meal of Fusilli Pasta with tomato, garlic and carbonara sauce, very tasty, for desserts, the sticky toffee pudding excellent, but the seasonal crumble very disappointing, stewed apples which looked like some kind of granola cereal on top cooked in the microwave, not very nice. overall very nice place for meal, with excellent service.

This is a small boutique hotel in the periphery of the city, but as such is quiet, picturesque and without parking problems. This is the third time I have stayed there in 1 year, each time for pleasure not business. The accessibility of major motorways to almost any part of Scotland is a huge plus. The hotel is small but well run and the rooms. while again on the small side, are comfortable and clean. The difference here is the staff. Helpful, friendly, nothing is too much trouble is their mantra. The bar and dining is excellent and really good value. In short this is extremely good value and a pleasant place to stay if you are exploring the area, getting rid of jet lag from the airport, or simply concerned about quality experience with a reasonable price.

We stayed at this hotel on Saturday 1st July unfortunately just for one night. The hotel itself is small but immaculate. Food is plentiful and hot with good choices. When we were there the restaurant was full which is always a good sign. Our room had been upgraded by the hotel and we were allocated Room 31 (for those that have stayed at the hotel and the staff they will know what a stunning room this is). I cannot point out any particular staff because they are ALL attentive and this is the sign of an excellent hotel. Congratulations to all staff and the management for attentiveness to their guests. We will definitely return. Pete & Babs Nicol

A hotel in the village of Eaglesham on the outskirts of Glasgow. It is also within easy access to East Kilbride. The food is of good quality with traditional Scottish breakfast. The beds were comfortable. Small hotel but a good range of services.

We stayed at the hotel for a week while visiting friends and relations in Glasgow. All rooms are on the first floor; there is a (slow!) wheelchair lift for those that need it but the stairs are manageable even for those of us with knee problems! The rooms are clean and very comfortable with plenty of storage space, windows that open, up-to-date TV and free Wi-Fi. Bathroom was small but masses of hot water and spotlessly clean. We were surprised that towels were changed daily - and occasionally a little hit and miss with the number of hand towels. Perhaps management could consider going a little greener and allowing guests to decide when they should be changed...or even every 3rd day would be good. The restaurant was very good. There was one malfunction on one evening (we ate in every night) but reparations were swift and with gracious apologies and service - thank you, Jose. It's also the first place I've seen with "naked" fish and chips. For those of us with more delicate digestive systems, that is fantastic...after all, who doesn't love the nation's takeaway now and again! Every single member of staff, from Victoria who welcomed us at reception (a nice low desk rather than an impersonal counter) to Jose in the dining room, Bailey on bar duty and all their colleagues, was friendly and ready to give advice on anything from village history to the price of a bus ticket. This very pretty hotel is also in a lovely conservation village. It takes about 2 hours to do the whole 'A', with a quick peep at the hidden St Brigid's Church, the Covenanters' Memorial, etc. and of course all the lovely cottages. The village itself has an excellent bus service (every half hour) into Glasgow, which takes about 45 minutes and is just £2.20 for a single ticket. You can park for barely an hour for that price, to say nothing of fighting for spaces if you drive in. Talking of cars, there is a good car park although, if there is a wedding on, you may have to park on the road but it's perfectly safe. There are also 2 electrical points opposite the hotel for electric/hybrid cars.

I stayed here with wife in a inclusive deal of Dinner, Abba tribute show, bed and breakfast. Although I only stay 2 1/2 miles from hotel, decided that as my son and his partner were attending also, would have a drink and not worry about taxis etc. We ere booked in very quickly and given a room on the first floor, which was very spacious, and modern. We particularly like the velux windows above the bed, which could be opened and blinds pulled over remotely. We were shown into a pre-dinner bar with other attendees, very nice atmosphere, we were then showed to our table which had been drawn up like a wedding seating plan. The meal was better than basic, but consisted of homemade tomato & basil soup, chicken and gravy with broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes. Finished off with a Summer Fruit cheesecake with coffee and tablet. The Abba Tribute was very good, and were ably backed up by the resident DJ in-between. Had a full Scottish Breakfast, but there was a very good choice. Breakfast was superb. Staff throughout were very good, managed very well by the management team who were visible throughout and assisted their staff when necessary. I have used the restaurant on many an occasion but this type of inclusive deal I will try again. Only downside of the whole event is the price of drink, which is about a £1 dearer than nearby establishments, but giving the type of deal, I expected to pay a bit dearer.

We stayed here numerous times in June and the staff was always very friendly and eager to assist us with anything anything we needed! The rooms were always very clean and comfortable! Look forward to staying here again!
