Golden Wedding - July 2019

it was just lovely in every way.  The staff were so kind and attentive; the lunch was very tasty and enjoyed by all and the extra room was very well used by all the children, as was the Terrace.

After we went off many of the family went to enjoy the play park, so happiness all round.  It was also a bonus to be allowed to go down to floor 1 and see the rooms there.  Two of my talented great-nephews played the piano for us too.

Thanks to you and everyone for making it such a special day.  We are looking forward to returning next Sunday as guests of our oldest friends Maureen and Colin!

All the best,

Maureen and David


Golden Wedding - July 2019

Dear Kate.

Many thanks for organising our Golden Wedding celebration. Everyone agreed that we’d chosen the perfect venue – the sun shone , our meal was delicious, served graciously and efficiently, and we had an ideal opportunity to catch up with the rest of the family.

Please pass on our thanks to the staff for helping to make our day one to remember.

Heather and I hope to be back to visit the rest of the House for an Art Lover in the near future.

Thanks again.

David and Heather.


Ruby Wedding - April 2019

Thank you to everyone who made our Ruby Wedding celebration yesterday such a great success - we have had nothing but praise and nice things said about the venue and the staff. The girls who served and looked after us were wonderful and nothing was too much of a problem.

We had a collection for Alzheimers Scotland and raised over £200, so thanks also letting us display the collection tin.

Everyone enjoyed looking round The Mackintosh Suite which was a lovely start to our party.

Thanks again

June & Tom Marchbank



40th Birthday Celebration - June 2019

Many thanks for your note. We had a fantastic afternoon with all Lyndsey’s family and friends. The event was run very efficiently by Maria who was fabulous and worked well with her team especially Jack who was also very good. We thought the food was delicious......All of our guests  were very impressed with the venue and we even had a couple of Japanese tourists drop in while visiting Rennie Macintosh venues in Glasgow.  The weather made it possible to use the outside and this was a great hit. Some of the older kids found there way down to the park for a while and that was also good.

However I can’t emphasise how professional Maria was in making sure everything ran like a Swiss watch and a lot of the success of the afternoon was down to her good management of the event.

Thanks again and we won’t hesitate to recommend House for an Art Lover for any special event.

90th Birthday Lunch - January 2018

Sorry not to meet you Rachel but Robert and Scott were fantastic, service was impeccable and the food was just as good as I hoped . Your website does not do that lovely space justice! - the sitting area in particular was fantastic, and let everyone have a good old catch up pre and post food.  Dining room similarly gorgeous.  Think if we hadn't left at half four they would all still be there!

Many thanks again, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as a venue as more than one of our guests said they would be considering it for their own events.

All the best
