Went into Smith's for lunch last Thursday and was very impressed with their menu. The staff were saying that it was a new menu and was launched the day before. When our food arrived, it looked fresh, well cooked and was very tasty. Presentation excellent. Some main meals are 2 for £10, which is excellent value for money. Looking forward... More

Waiter was very pleasant and attentive. Surroundings create attractive dining experience. Starters were good, but main courses were not up to scratch; ravioli was swimming in tomato sauce and fajitas were tasteless and did not finish them. As a result they were deducted from the total bill. Young chef perhaps needs extra training on cooking various cuisines.

Nice staff, and breakfast was freshly cooked and very good indeed, dining room staff were very friendly and efficient. Those are the only good things I can say. The room was small, pretty grimey. The shower was awful. The room was roasting hot and airless, there was no window. The noise was terrible, until 2am the base boomed and kept... More

As its the only hotel in Kirkintilloch we stayed here for a one night business trip. Arrived late (9pm) but had called earlier to be told that the restaurant was closed at 8pm that night and the only place in town open would be the Indian opposite! Parking close by and free. Good sized rooms but basic and old furnishing... More

Stayed here with work and really enjoyed it. The staff was great and friendly. The breakfast on the Saturday was okay, it was a full cooked breakfast. In the week they have a standard continental breakfast. The rooms where spotlessly clean and the showers where hot hot! The bed was really comfortable and i slept so well that i will... More

As this is the only hotel in Kirkintilloch, they don't have any competition and it shows. Having said that,the cellar is surprisingly well kept. The Caledonian Best is superb and at £2.20 a pint doesn't hurt the wallet too much.

I recently stayed at the Smiths Hotel in 'Kirky' for one night as part of a family reunion. Parking around the hotel is busy but suitable and free. On first entertaining the hotel, the initial impression was good. All staff are really helpful and pleasant. It went down hill from there. There are no lifts, so use of the first... More

Having read the very poor reviews on Trip Advisor, I was reticent to stay at Smith's Hotel but, as it's the only gig in town, I had little choice! I was pleasantly surprised however. There is free wifi. My room was nice and clean and very good value at £55 a night, including breakfast. The shower took a little time... More

Having been booked in here by someone else and with little choice but to stay I was a bit nervous after reading the other reviews. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel has spent money on fancy door numbers but the shower was not as clean as it might have been and the carpeting on the way to... More

We had dinner here on Christmas Eve, table of 10 adults and 5 kids. There was the choice of the Festive menu or normal menu. The beef was delicious, by all accounts, and was a big surprise as it came as a fillet rather than carved slices as expected. The turkey was not memorable but was decent and hot. Those... More
