Our second stay at this hotel. Had a few days over the weekend to spend between business events in wider Glasgow area so came here and spoiled ourselves. Price for our three night break was less per night than stays before and after in Premier Inns. Easy to find in centre of Eaglesham, even if the SatNav was telling me to turn left to get into hotel when actually it was on the right! Car park can get busy with events on or at Sunday lunchtime but there is plenty free parking nearby. Hotel has been tastefully modernised, unlike another we stayed in a few days later. Clean and comfortable, although not particularly outstanding. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Receptionist went out of her way to switch room bookings around so we could have a room with a walk in shower rather than an over-bath one. Good to see management helping out in restaurant when it was really busy. Restaurant menu is good and food delicious and prices reasonable for this standard of hotel. The special offer of an 8oz fillet steak and pepper sauce on the Saturday night was too good to resist and the steak was absolutely superb. Restaurant was really busy all three nights we were there and at Sunday lunchtime, seemed popular with locals as well as hotel residents, suggesting the high quality is consistent, so do book in advance! Weather was not great this visit, raining and windy and snow on the Sunday morning, so haven't yet explored Eaglesham. (Last time it was a one night stop on way home from Dublin, having got off the ferry at Cairnryan in late November). Village is bigger than it looks and has a Chinese Restaurant but we ate in hotel rather than venture out in the rain & snow, so cannot vouch for it. Village has a fascinating history. Thoroughly recommend the Eglinton Arms and will certainly come and stay again next time we need accommodation in the area. Hopefully in better weather! less
