Stayed here for three nights as part of a coach trip to the Edinburgh Tattoo. My room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the front car park, and although basic, it had a very comfy bed. The bathroom adequate, but could have done with another shelf somewhere, as there was only one small glass one. The shower was ok, but... More

This is a lovely hotel with beautiful views. Our 2 rooms were clean with comfortable beds that had white crisp clean sheets. I had a lovely hot shower but next door there was no hot shower so I just shared mine. The staff were really friendly...we chatted to the bar staff for a while and the receptionist who could not...

Not impressed. Steak dinner was returned. Pepper corn Sauce had to be returned twice. Steak pie was cold, tasty enough though. Roast potatoes were of aunt bessies frozen and not real potatoes! Baked potato was mushy. Chips were real though as were the onion rings! Just sad that they weren't that hot! On a positive note, waitress was lovely.

Short notice visit to Paisley and the watermill was relatively close to the hospital my dad had been admitted to. Decor was very dated and the rooms were small. Biggest turnoff however was somebody else's hair blocking the shower.

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...
