Have used the hotel as a base on several occasions. Great location to get onto motorway and get about. Lovely people especially the reception and restaurant staff. Very good accommodation and food. Funfair nearby that doesn't affect on hotel noise but good for kids. Nice walks in Strathclyde country park opposite hotel.

Spectacular surroundings ideal if you have children plenty to do and see.Hotel clean and very helpful, room spacious and comfy. News papers in reception and bar for your use. WiFi very poor ,nearly non existent in room Breakfast poor compared to other hotels I have stayed in. In Scotland and don't serve porridge. They do serve Haggis though.

Dear Guest Thank you for your very kind review. The hotel staff are very good and work very hard. I am sorry about the fire alarm but it is there for a reason and unfortunately most of the activations could be prevented by our guests being a wee bit more aware of the smoke detectors. Thank you again for your... More

This hotel is confidently located between Glasgow and Edinburgh. Friendly staff, big comfortable rooms with an equally big bathroom. While most people will use this hotel as a touring base, the area is actually very interesting. The hotel is just across the road from an international standard water sports area and the M&D amusement park. For history buffs there are... More

Wee catch up lunch with a friend yesterday, looking for somewhere central. The service was excellent as was the meal and surroundings. I expected it to be much more expensive, great value for money and large portions. Was my first visit and wont be my last.
