We were given an experience voucher for Christmas that entitled us to a three course meal and a bottle of wine and decided to use it tonight. We have had a wonderful meal from an extensive menu and would certainly recommend it as a very acceptable gift. The staff couldn't do enough to make the whole experience a memorable event.... More

Short story: went to the Boathouse yesterday with my boyfriend for lunch, paying nearly £50 for bad service, disgusting food and zero views of the Loch. Entirely not worth it. The restaurant was busy and the service was absolutely awful from the start, it was near impossible to get anyone's attention and when we did they were uninterested and keen... More

Lovely mal today on our first visit to this hotel beside the river boats. On arrival girl who greeted us was a bit off hand not very welcoming but waiter who served was very pleasant and we had beautiful fish and chips. Bit pricey but the surroundings are lovely and we did enjoy.

The Boathouse at Kilsyth as become a right little "local" for us for dinner. Despite having to travel 15 miles to reach it and pass many other more local restaurants on the way we simply love coming here. The fact you can use your Tesco Clubcard rewards and quadruple your money makes this restaurant fantastic value for money.

Set next to a mooring at the end of the canal with nice views. I use this hotel on a regular basis and come across it by accident- some more expensive hotels within the area do not come anywhere near this hotel on standard of food and service. Excellent rooms kept immaculate, with an adjacent restaurant and bar open to... More
