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.

... sketchy place, some establishments now nice were pretty sketchy in his memory. But nowadays the neighborhood is thoroughly gentrified and the hard cider and fish-n-chips at Finnieston Pub are delish!
So where are the weedy empty lots and slummy areas of Glasgow that haven’t rebounded yet? Where are the ugly highrise public housing estates with the severe social problems I used to hear about in articles about Glasgow? I’m not sure. If they’re still around ...
... considerably less cheery looking police on horseback. When we pass the subway exit with its emerging hordes it dawns upon us that there is no possibility that this way will be faster, and we are right. Ibrox, the home ground of the Other Team, is known in engineering circles for its structural design and we have plenty of opportunity to study this as we inch our way through the security checks. The first Scotland game is over by the time we emerge into the stadium ...

We had a snack at a local cafe and Mark took pity on how out of shape I was by letting us take a bus back to the start of the lake. That brought another adventure in the form of a blown out tire (sounded like a gun shot), but we slowly made it back to our starting point with no real delays.

... Though not as spectacular as what we had seen the day before.
In general though, I'd dare to compare the nature in Scotland to the one in Canada. During my trip in Banff National Park, I've seen spectacular nature but Scotland is simply as beautiful. Accept for bears, moose and the gorgeous azure colour of the lakes, Scotland can offer the same as the more 'exotic' Canada.
Stay tuned cuz' there's plenty more to come.
... and went to the Edinburgh castle. After the Castle I went to the Scotch Whisky place where I had booked a tour. The tour was for about one hour with history of how scotch single malt whisky is made, what are the differences of scotch made in different cities, etc. I had no idea about the taste of scotch made from the highlands vs. the lowands, etc where so different. The tour also had a room with the largest collection of scotch bottles in the world donated by ...
