About Grand Hall
The Grand Hall is at the heart of Mar Hall. Formerly known as the Picture Gallery, it is 118 feet in length. This classic environment is furnished with French style Louis XIV chairs and low coffee tables. Its ornate high ceilings, paintings, tapestries and carpeting capture the breath.
The 20ft windows allow ample natural light and views of the formal gardens, where a vast Lebanese Cedar resides. A resident pianist performs on the Baby Grand to create an appropriate mood for those enjoying a light snack, lunch or Afternoon Tea.
Light lunches and snacks are served Monday to Saturday in the historic Grand Hall from 12 noon until 4pm in a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. Sunday Lunch is served between 12 noon and 2pm.
Afternoon Tea can be enjoyed in the Grand Hall every day between 2:30pm and 5pm (reservations required 24 hours in advance). This includes:
Freshly prepared sandwiches, traditional, home-baked Scottish cakes, scones and your choice of speciality teas and coffees - £22.50 per person
Add a little sparkle to Afternoon Tea and include a glass of champagne - £34.00 per person
Had a voucher for Afternoon Tea and came with my sister as part of a birthday treat. Can't fault it . . . staff were welcoming, friendly, helpful and downright nice! Efficient without being obtrusive - perfect. Great selection of sandwiches, scones, jams, pastries and cakes, and even a 'doggie bag' for what we didn't/couldn't eat. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and felt very private, even though we were sitting in the Great Hall. Would definitely recommend it and hope to be back in the future.
Great day had for afternoon tea. Fabulous selection if sandwiches & cakes & a lovely tranquil atmosphere
Had a lovely time
Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea. Choice of sandwiches and cakes was excellent. Slight downside was that coffee did not remain very hot in the pot provided however we asked for more and that was not a problem at all. My mum has some mobility issues and we were unaware of a disabled toilet when we were directed downstairs to the toilets as they were by far easier and nearer than the one beyond reception. We should have been more specific regarding disabled toilets.
Lovely relaxing time and beautiful place Very friendly staff. Great service. Lots of tea and we cleared the cake stand! Delicious! ❤ . Thank you. :)
All brillant however one negative would be creates of robes etc sitting in the corridor just before we reached our room. Felt like we were going into the laundry room. These were there for our whole visit.
Absolutely fabulous service and food ! very relaxing atmosphere! the lunch was really enjoyable! we would definitively recommend!! and I love the Grand Piano :) if you have skills and talent or coming with the pianist - it could bee a great tune!!! thank you so much!!!
Beautiful building in a beautiful setting. Could not fault the service by the staff and the afternoon tea was quite nice. Very overpriced and the grand hall is in much need of refurbishment.
Excellent afternoon tea with clean plates all round. Lovely selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes and an unending supply of excellent coffee. Will definitely return :)
very attentive staff, beautifully crafted food.
Having been a loyal customer for the last 7 years if found the high tea poorly put together and thought out. It seemed cheap at best considering the cost. I was shocked at the quality and option of the sandwiches as in the past this has been exceptional it quite frankly looked like a cost cutting high tea at maximum cost to the customer. We dearly love this hotel having stayed there on numerous occasions for birthdays etc. I must confess I will think twice before I return and will also say at the time as hindsight isn't how I'd normally inform colleagues in hospitality of issues they may have.
My daughter and I had a wonderful time at Marr Hall. Afternoon tea, venue and staff were wonderful. I can't wait to go back!
The hotel and its grounds are quite breathtaking. You're blown away as you arrive up the long driveway and having been told by my dad about the reputation of the hotel I guess I was expecting great things throughout. The stay at the hotel overall was great, really spacious and comfy room, wonderful afternoon tea and a decent breakfast in the morning. Why I wouldn't be rushing to recommend people straight away is for a couple of reasons: 1. The afternoon tea was absolutely great and well done to the pastry chef for sorting delicious gluten and dairy free alternatives however we went to Culloden house last year and the same experience was nearly a full £10 cheaper per person in a very similar grand house so I feel this could be looked at. 2. The fire alarm went off and had us waiting outside. Now this is a tricky one as of course we should be outside during a fire alarm however if it's a fault in the system which this appears to be then it is your fault and more than that it is during this experience that I think it was evident you didn't know how to deal with the situation. There was no real clear guidance and only one member of staff thought to actually approach guests directly and offer them warmth in another building. You are a prestigious hotel and as a result your response should be above and beyond not basic, so something as simple as a walk round with hot tea afterwards or even acknowledging or apologising for the inconvenience at checkout should be there. Your grounds, building, rooms, quality of the beds etc are all exceptional and I would happily stay again. I just think in terms of the reputation you carry and hold - there is potentially room in granted what were exceptional circumstances could be more.
We enjoyed a very pleasant afternoon in the Grand Hall, at Mar Hall Hotel, having afternoon tea. The long wooded driveway opens up to a view of the impressive Mar Hall. The location is beautiful, on the banks of the river Clyde. On arrival we were warmly welcomed and service in the Hall was excellent. Afternoon tea included sandwiches, a scone and delicious little cakes. It would have been nice to have a wider range of teas to choose from, but otherwise we enjoyed the experience very much.
This is the second time we have been for afternoon tea both time were a voucher gift to us but we would happily book and return ourselves.
Lovely afternoon Tea - thank you!

My daughter and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea with fantastic service.
Staff were very attentive and helpful... Food was well presented....With the wedding fayre going on it might have been worth suggesting we dined in the bar, as a lot of people were walking back and forward around us.. This is not a criticism just a friendly suggestion...thank you once again for a lovely birthday lunch...
