Visited here as part of our stay at Mar Hall and have to say it was excellent from start to finish. Service superb and food was fantastic as well. Had requested Champagne in advance and it was chilling at our table when we arrived. Set the tone for the night. Food was second to none and overall service was superb... More

This is by far and away an AMAZING place to be a member of. The golf staff, Andrew, Graham, Euan and Johnathon are an absolute credit to the place. I have never been greeted so warmly and this is on every visit. We have stayed at the Hotel many times and its our favourite place to stay. Food is outstanding... More

We arrived on a Saturday and when driving up the well kept driveway to the main door we commented on how well looked after it looked but that came to a sudden halt when we arrived in the main car park.

Had dinner here as part of a 2 night stay at the hotel. Decor is stunning and the staff were lovely and friendly. Food was very good but quite expensive. Certainly a beautiful place for a special occasion.

Great service,great food, reasonable price, tired decor. The fillet steak is as good as you'll get anywhere. Staff weren't sure about the sourcing of wine and fish dishes on the menu but overall service was great.

Staff started setting up for breakfast while we were eating our dinner. Not very good for a 5 star hotel.

The Cristal, the stunning restaurant at Mar Hall Hotel, is both just outside Glasgow and also a million miles away. Mar Hall is a 19th-century Gothic mansion transformed into a very elegant 21st century retreat, a perfect combination of classical and modern luxury. The Cristal boasts soaring vaulted ceilings, gothic panelling, lovely views over the gardens and grounds, and smart styling at eye level. Award-winning chef Eric Avenier and Head Chef John Mcallum have created a mouth-watering seasonal menu with incorporates French cuisine. We source as much of our meat and vegetables from local Scottish Suppliers. Eager service, fine wines, relaxed ambience not to be missed!
