We stayed here a few years ago and thought it was bad - now it's terrible. When we first stayed, even though the hotel was run down, at least the staff were friendly and there was a cooked breakfast. Now the staff are bordering on surly and there is only what is laughingly described as a continental breakfast (a toaster, tired croissant, tepid water in a thermos to try and make tea etc etc). Other reviewers have stated the many faults with this hotel so I won't repeat them but I would like to add a few of my own: The walls of the rooms (which are tiny and overheated) are paper thin and in our room the bathroom of the adjoining bedroom was directly behind the headboard of our bed so we could hear every turn of the tap and flush of the toilet (and worse); corridor carpets unhoovered for weeks; non-existent security so drunks from the bar downstairs were free to wander the bedroom corridors, windows that wouldn't close properly. I could go on - and on - and on. Sadly this is the only hotel in Kirkintilloch (which is why we used it, although never again) but I would highly recommend that you stay elsewhere if possible.
