We used the £100 voucher given at Christmas for this weekend. We didn't know quite what to expect as this voucher covered evening meal, overnight stay and breakfast; for two! To say that our expectations were exceeded is an understatement! The rooms are large, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The dinner menu was extensive and the food delicious. Our server was... More

We got some Tesco Clubcard reward vouchers for this restaurant - and it is fantastic! We went once with the kids, and once ourselves. It is light and bright and airy, and the setting is lovely. The food is similar to the sister restaurant, 'The Wheelhouse', near Falkirk, but 'The Boathouse' is much lighter. I am gluten-free, and in most... More

Excellent little pitstop on the canal. Food was promptly served, hot and particularly enjoyable! .. dined here with a little one aged seven, the staff were excellent, and even satisfied the wee fussy one! ... thanks!

Just been to the Boat House for a special meal with my husband. It was busy and we were asked to wait (next to the front doors) but we were shown to our table within a few minutes. Now my husband was assured of a marina view table when he booked the week before (and he told them it was... More

Had lunch here on 03/02/14 with my husband, as usual it was up to standard. Lovely place inside, helpful friendly staff, great food and extremely pleasant surroundings, a definite must to visit. Even better in the summer when al fresco dining is possible.

My daughter and her partner treated us to lunch here, they have been several times, and always had a lovely meal, and I must agree, I couldn't fault the food and the setting on the river is beautiful. The portions are very generous, I am pleased I didn't order a starter I think I would have struggled to finish my... More

Had an escape night after the mayhem of Christmas. Quick checking in, nice room with a view of the marina, great food at dinner. Stornoway Black Pudding & poached egg starter was to die for. Only niggle, if we're being picky, was a couple of bulbs out in the bedroom.

Visited the Boathouse restaurant for the first time on 30th December for a friend's birthday - they have spoken about and recommended this place several times, but I had not previously had the opportunity to go. Well, I wish I hadn't left it so long! The place was busy without feeling crammed and the service was warm, friendly and attentive... More

I stayed in this hotel 28th --> 29th Dec 2013 at short notice room only was a very reasonable £60.00. My room was warm on arrival as was the hotel restaurant. Staff were vibrant and helpful especially Malcolm and Chloe. Menu was varied and quality was in my opinion 5 Star. Panoramic views albeit Scottish rain and excellent wee break... More
