Rude service - if any
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
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).
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!
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
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
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.
I thought It was stunning I'd love to go back. Everything was simply stunning.
Not a function Hotel
Attended Function - Service Poor, food average, Hotel with protential, great location
Great 1 night stay
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
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.

The Great River Road, (GRR) follows the Mississippi for over 2,000 miles from its origin at Lake Itasca in Northern Minnesota to where it flows into the Gulf of Mexico at New Orleans. As it charts its course southwards from its source Old Man River, meanders through the states of Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana on its western banks and Wisconsin, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi on its east. I have driven down the Great River Road before, ...
... very well. Diane saw in an estate agents window a house for sale that had 7 bedrooms all with ensuites that could be used as a B&B. Cost of this was about $500,000. We then went to "Where eagles fly high". This is another place with a burial ground about 5000 years old. We got there and had to walk 1 mile it was too late to do it as we had to catch a ferry. Both Diane and I think that this place we should have visited earlier. Caught the ferry at 6pm.
... out on the bike on a day like today. It was also about 8 degrees - it is never that cold at home! Craig met us at home at 9am and off we went. It took about 20 minutes to clear Glasgow and we then headed north west to Loch Lomond. The weather was not the best with misty rain but the scenery was spectacular with low clouds hanging over the mountains beside the loch. We stopped at Inveraray for morning tea - and to warm up. The sun eventually decided to shine as ...
... movie Braveheart and a major victory by William Wallace was there. Playing it by ear but so ready to get started. Hope to have some real "Holiday" postings soon.
Got my car and it is pretty neat. Yes, it is small but the roads are so much narrower here and many times just one lane where you have to pull over to let the other car pass. Driving on the left side of the road turns out to be not a big deal and kind of ...
... Not particularly appetising but great after three hours of hard labour.
Back to work, with everything in place it was just a case of drilling holes and mounting the displays so that they would be safe from little prying hands. One of the curators had said, only half in jest that no switches should be left exposed and the public were likely to switch the displays off and steal the fuses! So everything had to be tidied away and hidden behind locked cabinet doors.
