"The Glenshiel Hotel presents itself as a 'country lodge' and that's exactly what it is: a large, rambling farmhouse-style main building with rooms arranged in a courtyard around the back. There aren't very many rooms but they are absolutely huge: a suite, rather than a room is what we had (#4). I suppose it is expensive in the context of South African hotels but for us as UK travellers it was about the same as we'd pay for an ordinary room in England - you get so much more for your money in SA.On the day we arrived there was no electricity at all. This wasn't the hotel's fault - the whole region was out - and this lasted until about four the next morning. To the hotel's credit they gave us dinner for free - they have a generator, but it isn't powerful enough to run the whole place - and provided lots of candles on big candlestick in the rooms, which actually seemed very appropriate (and they'd obviously done this before).The food and service was very good indeed. There didn't seem to be be very many staff on duty at all, but whenever we wanted a drink, or some help, someone popped up at a moment's notice. Maybe they're just trained to be invisible until you need them (in which case they're very good it it!)The countryside around is very popular with South Africans visiting the forests in the region with its attendant rivers and dams - spectacular trout fishing is one of the area's attractions.We were there for a family wedding so I probably won't have reason to return but if I ever do, I will definitely stay at the Glenshiel Hotel again."
