This is a very dated hotel in desperate need of refurbishment! Despite a beautiful location and a reasonably good restaurant the whole place needs a makeover--more subtle carpets, replacement of very old furniture reminiscent of the 1960s at best. The problem is that a reasonable investment will be required along with a lot of marketing and I am not convinced you will ever see a return on the investment! Too bad--it's got possibilities!

Very tiredPosted Sep 30, 2014
I booked this hotel for its location. It's in a nice rural location, with terrific views of the hills, within easy reach of Glasgow. From the outside its a fine-looking stone Scottish pile. But the public rooms are very tired, and the bedroom was even worse. The bathroom was ropey, the fan ancient and very noisy, and the shower mildewed. It didn't give the impression of being entirely clean. So, I think a makeover or updating is required.

ok but not great and no poolPosted Aug 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
bed was too soft. room was small but clean enough. Staff were friendly when they were around. reakfast on the last day was not great as service was poor. However biggest issue for me is that I searched specifically for a hotel that had a pool and this one came up as part of the results and stated in the hotel details that it had an indoor pool - it does not. You can use the Virgin Active club a few miles away at a discounted rate of 7:50 per day but this is not what I was expecting and was not very happy about this as I would have stayed somewhewre else had I know this.

Make yourself at homePosted Aug 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
All the people were firiendly,helpful and personable at the Strathblane Country House. It is in a beautiful location not far from Milngavie. One should have a car to get to the train system for Glasgow as it is about 3 miles north of the end of the line and it is such a good idea to drive to points of interest like Stirling and Loch Lomond. Strathblane has a fine dining room but there are many other places not far from the hotel where a variety of foods are offered.

Disappointing hotelPosted Aug 2, 2014
Pros: Nice quiet location.
Cons: Cleanliness, daily servicing of room, quality of breakfast other than cooked, amount of staff as reception was rarely manned.
After check in, which was efficiently managed by reception, we found the hotel very ordinary. Bedroom was small, Room 8, bathroom very basic. Bed had plastic sheet, unnecessary. One day room wasn't serviced, another day left unlocked by cleaners. Cooked breakfast of good standard, other elements of breakfast were not, little choice and not good quality. We were locked out of hotel on our first night even though we weren't back late, no bell to ring and had to knock on windows to attract attention. We never saw a receptionist on any morning before we left. The drive is full of potholes and isn't a great advert for what is to come.

Exquisite food and stunning surroundingsPosted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: The staff were very friendly and informative. The food was superb and the hotels surroundings were stunning.
Location: Location was stunning, local pub and gym within walking distance. A 5 minute drive to the local train station which was fantastic for us.
We booked Strathblane country house hotel as we were visiting Scotland for the Commonwealth Games 2014. We arrived late in the afternoon due to attending an event before hand. When we arrived we were welcomed by lovely staff who attended to our every need. There were cleaning products outside our room which were removed straight away once we had reported them and the room was comfortable and pleasant. The surroundings of the hotel were stunningly beautiful. Breakfast was of outstanding quality and the variety on offer was superb. We also stayed at the hotel for one evening meal during our 3 day stay and was blown away with the quality of the food, a complete highlight of our trip. The staff were extemely pleasant and very helpful to us whilst in Scotland, they were very informative on places to see and go and local public transport that we could use. The only downside to our stay at Strathblane country hotel was a clash with an event they were hosting (i believe it may have been a birthday celebration or a wedding reception) music was very loud till late of a night and other guests were extremely loud throughout the evening and early hours in the morning, running up and down corridors and banging doors, staff did not address this to our knowledge and this interrupted our final nights sleep before our long drive back to the West Midlands.

As expected - good bed, big gardens, Country HousePosted Jun 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
First impressions: they need a gardener. There is a lot of garden and flower beds and they are all in need of a bit of TLC. The welcome was warm and friendly. The room was a good size. The staff were nice. The bathroom could use a coat of paint, but everything else was fine and what you would expect for a 3 star Country House Hotel.

Strathblane hideawayPosted Oct 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
Stayed here for 1 night. Quiet and relaxed visit, had meal in restaurant which was nice but not cheap. Would recommend to those who like to stay in more rural locations
