Decided to book the Watermill Hotel based purely and mistakenly on the pictures on the online site I used . Whilst sitting in the reception area , I easily overheard 2 members of staff complaining about 2 couples whom had wanted to swap over rooms because now she would have to change room numbers on each of their cards ???...

I really can't recommend this hotel to anyone. We chose it purely for it's proximity to where our event was being held. We booked for 1 nights stay for a family event. We requested a quiet room. I knew this was an old building so expected it to be a bit quirky and different. However what we got was a... More

Paisley is an interesting town in its own right and is only 10 mins away from Glasgow Central station. I had booked for two nights but had to change to one. Only a one night stay therefore any review can only be a fleeting impression. However that impression was good. Reasonably priced for a single room bed & breakfast; quiet;... More

We have just come back to the watermill after 10 years. There have been some improvements to the bar and a ballroom added. Well, the reception as always was friendly, our room was being cleaned at our arrival so we had a drink in the new bar. The seating area hadn't changed could have done with a upgrade. 20 mins...

ideal hotel for an overnight stay at a reasonable price, room clean and bed was comfy, breakfast was cooked to order (not buffet) and was of a generous portion, friendly staff, don't expect a 5 star hotel but for the price could not fault, at the moment the lift is not working, free parking on site too.

The staff were good and helpful however the building is in desperate need of a make over. I was on the second floor with the lift out of order with a sign that was nearly as old as the hotel. The river view is nice to see but no one turns it off so keeps you awake at 3 am!
