      Rude service - if any

      from

      Arriving at the quay very early for a voyage on the Waverley paddle-steamer down the Clyde and along the Ayrshire Coast, I decided to cross the pedestrian bridge for a cup of coffee at the Moat House Hotel. The woman at the first lobby breakfast area I encountered informed me very brusquely that her area was reserved for a private party. At the next breakfast area, I was told that there was seating for breakfast only. Nor would the reception desk suggest a way in which I might get a simple cup of coffee. I was made to feel homeless. Perhaps my American accent led folks to mistake me for GW Bush, 'tho I don't look like him, I wasn't wearing dungarees with a big belt buckle and I did not vote for him.

      Crisps and tissues under the bed and chairs

      from

      I stayed in a corner suite 10 days ago. The room was not properly cleaned. There were crisps under the bed (I stood on them as I was getting into bed). The bathtub did not empty properly and the shower was broken. There were tissues under an armchair. Room service was 30 minutes late and there was a smell of cigarette smoke throughout the room and corridor. I checked out the next morning and spent the rest of my stay at the Radisson (which was very good).

      Perfect weekend!

      from

      Had a great weekend at this hotel. Myself & my two children booked a family room, deal included tickets to Science Centre, The Tall Ship & two days travel on the Glasgow Tour buses. There were not enough hours in the day to get everything done!!

      Our room was a reasonable size, perfectly clean and the view was stunning. Kids loved the panoramic lift and each floor had a window beside the lift with a great view also. Every floor was visited at some point! Swimming pool was also lovely, we went swimming at night & the water was lit up from underneath, perfect temperature, music and deepest blue tiles made it a major chill out experience. There was also a very warm spa/jacuzzi (although under 16's were not allowed in the spa), where I spent quite a while! There is also a gym & steam room etc, but thats not my thing!

      We had lunch at the hotel, which was expensive but delicious, with a good kids menu & the kids were given sticker books to keep them occupied. Staff were all friendly & helpful & after we checked out on the Sunday there was a room where they kept our bags for the day, so we could spend the whole day at the Science Centre which is just across the river from the hotel. (brilliant place also).

      Breakfast was also excellent (& was included), a buffet with a wide choice of food ( full fried breakfast, cereal, croissants, fruit salad, yoghurt etc etc), with pots of tea or coffee + toast brought to your table.

      I will definately be back, for a longer stay next time!

      Expected better

      from

      The hotel reception, facilities, breakfast and staff were excellent. The room was terrible, with shabby furnishings and holed bed sheets. It was small dark and looked extremely dated! Got the room really cheap compared to the normal rate, but was not told to expect lowered standards because of this. I would not go back to this hotel.

      Glasgow moat house

      from

      Had booked this Hotel because of its proximity to the SECC. This was the hotels only redeeming factor. Rooms were dark and dingy. staff were unhelpful. I actually was so dissapointed with my room that I infact checked out immediately and moved to another hotel.

      I was sadly dissapointed with this hotel, perhaps next time

      Great Room

      from

      Cant say anything about the food here because I didnt eat anything but the room was terrific and very very comfortable. Not exactly the handiest part of town to be in but there seemed to be a steady stream of taxis (about 2 or 3 minutes into the centre). Staff were great too.

      Stunning

      from

      I thought It was stunning I'd love to go back. Everything was simply stunning.

      Not a function Hotel

      from

      Attended Function - Service Poor, food average, Hotel with protential, great location

      Great 1 night stay

      from

      We only stayed for 1 night and went to the westlife concert, but that one night stay was the best. As soon as we left all i wanted to do was go back to the hotel. Some of the best features of the hotel had to be the 'panoramic lift' which has a glass wall so you can see out to the city of Glasgow, It had a walkway from the hotel to the S.E.C.C. which we found was very safe and easy for young(ish) children to use themselves, also the rooms were of great cleanliness and the hotel was set it a GREAT place in Glasgow.

      P.S. Westlife were GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Better outside than outside

      from

      The moat house hotel is nicely located on the Clyde river just in opposite the the Science centrer and just beside the congress center.

      It is very quite and nice looking from the outside. The restaurant is serving good food on a buffet. The rooms are quite large. The windows can not be opened and are as much dirty inside than outside, so don't think about taking a picture from the window. Also, the window frame is very dirty and sticky. The bathroom is just is okay, expected some hair on the floor. Beds are nice and large and ferm.

A short trip to the town of Ayr, and a little over an hour to see. Didn't venture too far. Back to the ship at 6pm, dinner, then a Music Scotland show on board, which was very ...

We emerge on a ridge that falls sharply away on both sides to give a 360 degree view of the crater, still completely clear of cloud. We walk further on, at the recommendation of a passing couple, to another outcrop that gives even more spectacular views. Again, we try to photograph how awesome it ...

      William Wallace's life was riddled with tragedy and war. Reading of his history will open your eyes on various parts of the Scottish history. The movie is a reach in the depiction of this legendary man. Your eyes will be opened to the vast experience this man and his family endured and how important he was to ...

      I will only pick out a couple of important things about Forth especially for Mum as they match what she knows. Firstly was the village pump. It could not be found on the first maps looked at, but when we ...
