This was our second trip to glenmor lodges, this time taking advantage of the sales offer ie you sit through a 'sales presentation" at a price of £375 for 2 nights and we added an extra night for £199. In the sales offer you get dinner in the strath earn restaurant up to the value of £59 per person and you get a spa session or equivalent as part of the package. The main pool is undergoing refurb so things are well organised despite this.
The properties are lovely but I don't think are worth 'buying' ie for,a short break is £7500 and then maintenance of about £700 a year!!!!! So keep to renting even if its only for a special treat every couple of years. We paid about £2600 off season for a 3 bed ( in February). That aside - 3 king sized double bedrooms. For some reason I did not sleep! Not sure why. Think it was the pillows. Defo need to give the option of firm non feather pillows. And they have this REALLY annoying blue light linked to a burglar alarm. We had to put a sock over it!
These are the only downsides (tho one kitchen unit door fell off - so much for well maintained!!!).
The kitchen is well kitted out, the tv has lots of channels (tho think it should be bigger for amount being paid). The bathroom with big bath is LOVELY but I don't know what it is.... I think there is something lacking for the amount expected for these timeshares and I guess I can't get the cost of then out my head!!!! As I say, bath lovely - but would have thought would have a jacuzzi bath! But it really is only a bath.
No one will be disappointed staying here but I do think overpriced!
Spa is the best I've been to in Scotland. Having the kiddies in the playroom for 2 hours is fab. Food is good in deseo. Strath earn meal was good (main meal was average but still tasty). Hairdressers is ok. If getting hair coloured, make sure you get the patch test done or they will refuse to do your hair despite this being the ONLY salon I've been to that insists on this. I was fairly pleased with y hair until my mum pointed out I had a blonde 'ring' which looked like a 'target'. Cut was fine.
Be warned tho - the newsletter we got sent is to the stables for the 'visit' on the wrong day only to be told it was on weds, not Tuesdays. Staff made it sound like I was the stupid one (and seemed to ignore my suggestion they called the author of the newsletter to make sure they didn't get it wrong). Mistakes happen but I do believe if it claims to be a 5 star establishment, then this should not happen. Felt some staff were a bit up their own backsides and the sales staff, when knew we weren't really interested in buying, weren't going to shake our hands at the end!
This sounds like I didn't enjoy it - I did but as insay, for,the price there is just a little something missing! We will return but likely to be a few years before we go back.
