A welcome respite when walking the highlands
The Buchanan was a welcome respite while walking along the Ways; there seemed to be a goodly number of similar travelers. Good accomdations and good service in the bar.

Comfortable stay with wonderful food.
A very nice hotel that was very clean and comfortable. A very good breakfast and good service. They have an excellent restaurant and both of our dishes were outstanding. They had spas available that we were unable to take advantage of. A nice stay.

Great Hotel
Best Western Buchanan Arms in Dryman is a great bargain. Just outside of Glasgow in a small Scottish village. The hotel is pristine and well appointed. It is a bit of a maze, but that is due to part of the building being a repurposed farm manor. You can get some history with some luxury at the same time. There is a spa on the location. The staff was helpful and pleasant. If you are in the area, this should be your first choice.

run-down and neglected
So I booked this hotel for 2 nights. The photographs on the booking website presented a rather pleasant picture. The reality was like a shoddy Travelodge. The first alarm bell was when told, at check-in - that the showers in the sauna ran hot and cold, and to be careful, as "the man" was coming back to fix. I asked if the pool was okay, and the receptionist looked to check a list - presumably that, also, is hit and miss. The first thing that struck me about the room was how sparse it was - I have added pictures of what the website says you are getting, and what you really get. The summary would be: Website: A table at the window. A chair in the corner. 2 bedside lamps. Reality: No Table. No Chair. 1 big, stupid, reading light on one side - nothing on the other. There was one mirror in the room - at chest height, and hanging on by a thread. The little passageway from room to bathroom had holes in the wall, and, where there used to a wardrobe I presume, a basic wooden clothes hanger. There was 1 bottle of shower gel at the bath - cap already half-screwed off, and 1 bar of soap - not wrapped in paper, or anything. Made me think they were left from the previous incumbent. I mentioned all of this at the start of the second day, and reception seemed surprised by our scarcity of furniture. She then offered a new room. I said yes. She then disappeared, and ran about for 10 minutes, at which point I left. On my return, no change, and room not serviced.

This is the 4th time we have stayed here service has always been a bit slow and rooms and sports centre looking a bit tired but staff have always been very helpful, Really disappointed with this stay. On arrival to room found dirty sock under chair from previous user and no hot water.1st night went out for a meal so did not try hotel restaurant .Breakfast was a disaster and service slow nobody appeared to be in control at 9am run out of bacon, sausage, mushrooms, beans, orange and more again nobody seemed to be in control nothing getting replaced what did eventually get replaced was after 9.30 when staff said breakfast finishes at 9.30. Came back from a walk up conic hill and used sports centre hot tub not working and no hot water in shower. Went back to room no hot water in bath or shower. We decided to give restaurant a bash for evening meal a big mistake. Staff taking orders for meals and forgetting what had been ordered running out of food changing order then food of poor quality fish under cooked steak over cooked really slow people walking out fed up of waiting. We have had some great holidays here in the past love the area but don't think we will be staying again really not good enough.
