Overall a fantastic xmas break . The food, service, room was brilliant. Will definitely be back next year, although wouldn't mind a different room due to the ghostly visitor during the night not scary though passed through very peaceful.

After much debate we decided to go away at Christmas for the very first time. Also as we enjoy our Shearings breaks through the year, we booked the 5 day break to the Isle-of-Bute. The Glenburn hotel was more than we expected, and the whole...More

The hotel was quaint, however the rooms have to improve. The room where we slept did not have the wow factor, despite this is supposed to be a 5 star hotel. The bathroom was cold, smelt of paint, paint blobs on the cold lino. There...More

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your comments on our site. We here are really confused as to why you think the hotel is supposed to be a five-star hotel. We have never promoted ourselves as such, and in fact are...More

Hi, we are a party of three. We would have liked to have booked three single rooms, however there are no single rooms available at end of March. The first week in April there was only one single room available. Therefore you either have to book a double and a single or look for an alternative Shearings break. We have checked with Shearings and they advise us to speak to the hotel. Last year we had the same issues. The hotel informed us we need to speak to Shearings as they have got all the single rooms. Why can the hotel not release twin rooms if guests are prepared to pay the single room supplement. i spoke to a lady travelling with Shearings who wanted to book a single room in March and there is no availability. So she has booked Oban instead. It seems a shame that the bus is half empty and there are empty rooms in the hotel and potential guest are being told no availability. . Last year we even paid for an extra person (that didn't exist) as there were no single rooms.. We love this hotel but single rooms on a Shearings holiday are practically like gold dust.

Nope no ghosts just plenty of high spirited people. I have probably stayed in this hotel over twenty times and I have never had anything go bump int he night.

Have you tried going through the Bay Hotels website? I have never travelled with Shearings and always go independently.
