After 20 years working at the hotel, Duncan and Manja say farewell to Glenfinnan House Hotel

Duncan and Manja are behind the hotel's many awards and success in the last two decades and have been at the heart of their local community throughout this time.


Owner Jane MacFarlane said:

"At the end of this season, after 20 years, Glenfinnan House Hotel is saying farewell to Duncan and Manja Gibson. They have dedicated themselves to creating the ideal country house hotel, and perfected this spectacularly, winning multiple awards for cuisine and service over the years. Even in the difficult times of the pandemic, Duncan and Manja came up with creative ways of supporting the community, providing boxed groceries and takeaways.

The good news is that Duncan and Manja are not moving far away and we are sure you will hear about them opening up another successful business – so watch this space. 

What is happening to Glenfinnan House Hotel? My family, which has run the hotel for over 50 years, will take its time to determine in what form to continue the business, and it could be that the hotel will have a later start to the 2023 season. 

Duncan and Manja will be sorely missed by us, the many loyal, long-standing guests, and the whole village community. We wish them the best of luck in their new endeavour."




We thank Duncan and Manja for the thousands of memories created, the wonderful work achieved and wish them a memorable and exciting new chapter ahead.
