Stayed here for 2 nights, with 2 rooms for the family. Both rooms whilst clean and spacious were very dark; the lighting was inadequate and only 1 bedside light. The walls and ceiling are very thin which means you hear your neighbours' moving about. Phones are an issue here; very poor mobile signal, no room to room phones and no... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, staff were very welcoming, friendly and they couldn't have done enough for you. Room was spacious, spotlessly clean, modern and a good size bathroom. The restaurant menu was varied, all freshly prepared and a good selection of nice wines! Breakfast was also lovely! Lovely view of the canal and boats and only 20miles from Glasgow... More

Come here regularly to eat as we live nearby. Food is always great with plenty choices. Stornaway black pudding starter is yummy and pulled pork delicious. Service can sometimes be a little patchy when it's busy but generally it's really good. Lovely place to go on a nice day as the outlook is lovely. Even coffee and caramel shortcake is... More

Clean, comfortable hotel with excellent reasonable priced food. The staff were friendly and we enjoyed our overnight stay. The dinner menu was imaginative and the meal was delicious. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the hotel is in a peaceful and picturesque setting beside a canal. The breakfast was great but very slow on the morning of our... More

The boathouse a small hotel with bedrooms overlooking the canal basin. It only has ten bedrooms mine was on second floor. Only noise was the vessels swinging in the wind. A very pleasant outlook also hills ion background. The Scottish breakfast was fine with a good variety of alternatives. It is right on canal path and looks over a popular... More

The Boathouse is a nice quirky hotel that gives value for money and the staff are really friendly. The room was clean and functional, the restaraunt food was excellent and if you get the chance definately have the traditional Scottish breakfast as long as you don't want to eat for the rest of the day. There is a pleasant walk... More

We booked and stayed at the boathouse again to avoid extortionate city centre prices for the commonwealth games. It was a perfect combination as we relaxed during the day walking and enjoying the beautiful location, ate in the restaurant late afternoon then drove into the city for the games in the evening. We were lucky as we had a marina... More

Auchinstarry Marina on the Forth & Clyde canal is the name of this little haven, positioned on its edge is The Boathouse pub, restaurant and hotel. We arrived Saturday evening and were warmly welcomed at reception and escorted to our room overlooking... More

Visited for Commonwealth Games to avoid extortionate city centre prices and as it looked nice online. The room was very nice with everything you needed including an ironing board and decent sized mugs for tea. We had a slight issue with our shower which was quickly fixed. We had a car park view but it wasn't a problem as we... More
