The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort - A QHotel
Travel Blogs from Cumbernauld
On Friday the 14th of October I got up at the crack of dawn and headed to the train station. The 5 hour train ride from London to Scotland began at Kings Cross station at 7 am, which is about 40 mins of travel from my flat. Safely on board the train, the rail journey was very pleasant, with lovely views of the countryside all the way to Edinburgh. …
... its beautiful , just as I had imagined. We decided to celebrate our anniversary a few days early in the castle. We are greeted by a jolly scottish man. We check in and he shows us to our rooms. On the way to our room he tells us a bit of history. He asked how long we will be here and we told him just one night as we will be picking up our friends , that are coming from England. Oh my ... He turned and said do you know how long we tried to get the Englishmen out of ...
Today we left Italy and on our way to Scotland with a stop in England. . We arrived in England had a two hour lay over, walked for ever to get our bags, as we had check through security once we landed. Off we go again with Scotland as our final destination. We arrive at the airport and when we finally get to the area to pick up our bags low and behold there are ...
... We need to completely tie up all loose ends. Also, by moving to the UK in the first place we've considerably complicated our lives. Now we do not just have one government to deal with, but TWO (2 income tax returns - yay!) as well as 2 separate banking systems dealing with 2 currencies. We also don't have the safety of re-routing everything to 'Mom and Dad's', things need to be settled properly. ...
... been party to today. Coming off the track we passed Romano Mains before walking down a green lane to Romano Bridge and lunch with the Roadie. It had taken longer than expected but the morning had been an absolute delight. It is the type of walk that Eva and Renate would love so hopefully one day we can take them on it. Stewart had been busy while we were walking and had sourced BBQ food for this evening was so good. We had squash instead of soup with our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort - A QHotel Cumbernauld
I was excited to spend a night at the 4 star hotel with my toddler, who I thought would enjoy the leisure facilities especially the swimming pool. My hubby was looking forward to having a go at golf. So off we went during the Easter weekend. We managed to have a good time using the swimming, spa facilities.
Stayed here overnight on 17th Feb.
Had a lovely relaxing time. Rooms were to a very high standard, staff were pleasant & helpful and our meals were excellent.
Spent a few hours enjoying the leisure facilities too.
(There was some building work going on around the hotel but this never caused any disruptions at all -so don't let this put you off.)
Would certainly stay here again!
Just returned from a 2 night stay in 'The Westerwood'. We were sent a special offer which allowed us to stay, at this so called 4 star hotel, for £200 in a deluxe room for two nights including dinner. Not a bad deal we thought, so off we went...
I have stayed in the Westerwood three times now and feel compelled to write this review for the following resons......
As a party of 4 persons we were looking for a hotel in the Glasgow area. Due to Rolling Stones Concert, Glasgow was fully booked but we managed to obtain rooms here. Some things are meant to be. This hotel is wonderful. It is located right next to a golf course, so plenty of space to walk along its paths and relax. The food is very much up market, smaller portions of extremely high quality. So good, we did not go into Glasgow the second day but ate there again - however, it is at a price - 3 course meal for 4 with wine etc £125. Sometimes you have to spoil yourself. Reception very clean and staff ever so helpful - thanks Maria. Bedroom, bigger than expected and at our request, we had a room overlooking the golf course area - very quiet indeed. First class bathroom, large bath and separate power shower. Usual tea/coffee facilities, biscuits, chocolates left on pillows for you and bottles of mineral water.
Perfectly acceptable for an overnight stay
The Westerwood is perfectly acceptable for an overnight stay and convenient for a quick run into Glasgow. 64 pounds for bed and breakfast was OK as the room was nice with nice fittings and modern lighting, a good view of the golf course and a pleasant walking path,the meal was good and the staff attentive, it was busy with bus parties and other parties, so maybe some other time might have been better as the breakfast was chaotic and children everywhere, but I would stay here again if I could,nt get into the city centre.
As major building work is being undertaken perhaps its not the best time to stay at this hotel.
Always a pleasant place to stay
I stay regularly at the Westerwood on business, usually just staying one night and find it to be a great place to stay. All the rooms I have stayed in have been very comfortable. I normally go for a swim, sauna and jacuzzi, which is great after a busy day travelling, then working. The restaurant is good, but if you want something a little quicker and cheaper the bar meals are more than adequate and well served. Room service is also fine. The hotel is in a lovely area with good views and a golf course, which seems quite popular. Staff are always friendly and I have always felt very much at home there.
It is rare I write about any hotel or go to the bother of praising staff but I was so impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of the staff at the Westerwood I feel I must make the effort on this occasion.
