Very informative tour of the Isle of Skye this is where Bonnie Prince Charlie dressed up in Flora McDonald's maids clothes to avoid detection from those murderous english loons who were after his head [i think] on our way to Glasgow we were advised that there were plenty of attractions on offer most of which we were told to avoid. Dumbarton had the …
... explore Glasgow with two girls named Sarah (pronounced Sera as in Que Sera Sera) and Hanna. We had a delicious brunch before hopping on the half hour train ride to Glasgow. I had a caramel apple pie a la mode first and then a meat pie with a perfect, flakey puff pastry top. We asked an older gentleman for directions to the train station and he practically escorted us there. He was so friendly!
We were warned in the pre-port meeting that ...
... Highland history. Here is the Wallace Monument, a tribute to William Wallace, a highlander who was featured in the Braveheart movie. We chickened out on the climb and just admired it from the car park. I must at this stage complement Betty our GPS. We encountered a number of closed roads on our way to Stirling and she successfully negotiated us along other, well off the track roads to get to our final destination. We watched as other cars ...
... and the one who finished last each round had to wear a Santa hat, which wasn't a big deal but needless to say, I never had to!
I'm not even going to try and remember all the bars we went to but a few highlights I do recall: Sexy Elf and his posy - a group of guys we met doing the same sub-crawl all dressed in variously weird outfits and far more wasted than us. The Kensington - a bar we had completely to ourselves evidently meaning ...

Of course we didn't mind, but it was odd as she could have sat in exactly the same position in the next set of four on the "pretty view" side (port out, starboard home, as the train line runs along next to the coast.) Afterwards we decided that she had probably deliberately joined us to avoid being hit on by a weirdo as the train filled up along the way; she was a third year history student, who came ...

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!!
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.
