We stayed here for a couple of nights as our friends had their wedding ceremony and reception at the hotel. Yes, it's a bit dated and the lift is the funniest/scariest one I've ever encountered, but 99% of the staff were great. The bar, waiting on and chambermaid staff were absolutely excellent and served us in a welcoming, friendly manner,... More

I stayed here whilst I was managing a conference at the University of West of Scotland. The Watermill is conveniently located for the university and it is an attractively set hotel on the banks of the river. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the beds are comfortable. However, the hotel is very tired and badly in need of... More

The hotel was pretty nice with amazing fully loaded breakfast buffet! The people were really kind and eager to help you. However, the rooms were rather cold. All in all a very nice place to stay for a couple of days..!

Only stayed here for one night and I must say, I was not impressed. Yes the staff are nice but thats about the only thing that is. My room was small and in very much need of a lick of paint. The toilet, sink and bath were cleanish but the floor had lots of dark hairs on it. Water out... More

Went here for a party and the staff and locals bent over backwards to make us as welcome as humanly possible. The decor was fresh and public areas were clean and comfortable. Family atmosphere. Food could not have been better

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
