Stayed here for one night, travelling with a business colleague & working locally. Bar area warm and relaxed. Good welcome on arrival, with friendly service. Rooms look newly refurbished, very comfortable bed & good night's sleep. One small gripe is that creaky floorboards in rooms above need to be screwed down tight.Views from the bar and some of the rooms...

Wiltra, Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback on your recent visit to The Boathouse, Kilsyth.

Warm and inviting, very attentive staff, clean and tidy, great food, lovely surroundings. Reasonable prices and generous portions. The restaurant was busy so booking is advised. Space around tables is generous. What more could you ask for?

Lovely room, fantastic evening meal, but very disappointing breakfast. No fruit, yoghurt or cereal on offer. Why? We were only offered a cooked breakfast and had to wait over twenty minutes to get it. Why not offer cereal and /or fruit and yoghurt initially, then the cooked breakfast.
