The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort - A QHotel Cumbernauld Reviews
Nice hotel for a spa or golf break Sep 07, 2011
I visited the Westerwood Hotel for a long weekend with a group of golfing friends. The hotel is part of the chain of 'Q Hotels' and is a 4 star golf and spa resort in Cumbernauld, 10 miles East of Glasgow, Scotland.
The Westerwood is very easy to find, it is visible from the M80 motorway and sits in a very prominent position. As you pull into the car park first impressions aren't great. The building itself is not great looking and it has very obviously been considerably extended in phases over a period of time. The structure looks rather corporate and lacking in character, although the views are quite impressive.
Things improve as you walk through the doors though and the reception area is modern, tasteful and inviting. The receptionist was friendly and helpful as we checked in. In fact we were to find that all staff, including the bar staff, waiters and waitresses, and even the cleaners were just as friendly.
The rooms were excellent. Clean, spacious, and well appointed and the set of French doors separating the bedroom from the entrance and bathroom areas were a nice touch. The bathroom was well fitted out with a separate bath and shower and a granite sink unit. The shower incidentally was magnificent. The room I had looked out to the front of the hotel and had a beautiful view of several miles of countryside. The rear facing rooms look out over the golf course and have an equally pleasant view.
There are a choice of bars and restaurants and we chose to eat in the Club Lounge overlooking the golf course. The food was top quality and reasonably priced considering the quality. The buffet style breakfast, served in the Flemings dining room, was comprehensive, well cooked and nicely presented. As a group of guys on a golf break we quite naturally tested both available bars and they were a little pricey but well stocked with both local brews (including a wide selection of Scotch Whiskies) and branded drinks available.
The facilities were excellent with spa, pool, gym, tennis courts and an excellent if rather challenging golf course.
Overall this is a nice hotel that belies it's rather underwhelming exterior. It has good transport links and has some rather spectacular views. Highly recommended.
