My wife and I have just spent 12 nights at the Watermill in Paisley. Although it is quite an old hotel everywhere was spotlessly clean. Our bedroom overlooked the waterfall and was always lovely and warm despite no heating being on. The location of the hotel is great as it is just a short walk to Paisley town centre where...

My husband and I spent a week here in April. We were very satisfied with the hotel. The room was not huge and was dark when the sun was not shining and there was only one chair. However, the bed was comfortable and the facilities were clean. Breakfast was substantial and tasty, and set us up for the rest of...

My daughter and I had an overnight stay at the newly furbished Watermill Hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable with lovely views across the river to the Paisley Abbey. I would recommend the Watermill Hotel to anyone wanting a comfortable stay at reasonable prices.

Booked a double room at short notice and proved more than adequate for our needs for looking round Loch Lomond and the Trosachs. (About 30 mins.

Having read comments about cold water...

This hotel is situated in the centre of Paisley and was ideally located for us. The staff are very warm and welcoming. Our bedroom was small, dark and lacked character. The decor is very basic and the soundproofing is poor. The windows are old and the secondary glazing doesn't cut out the noise from the water running over the weir...
