The trains into Glasgow run every 30 minutes and a day return after 9.30 is 5.80 with accompanying kids free. There are walks around the hotel through the park and... More

We booked into the Balloch Hotel for our anniversary, we had stayed there before so thought it was a good choice. We were greeted by pleasant staff although they looked a bit stretched. We waited to get checked in, then were given the keys to room 12, after the walk upstairs, we walked through a grubby hallway to our room.... More

Right on the banks of the river and in town centre so can't go wrong with this location. Slight confusing as it is also called the Lockkeeper Inn-think restaurant and hotel are separately owned. Our booking included breakfast but hot food extra .Not that we needed it as what was on offer was excellent and more than adequate for us.... More

Issues I encountered were: two of the room lights not working, stains over one wall, soap dispenser fell apart when trying to use, tissue dispenser fell off the wall when one tissue was pulled out, door to...

Probably the cleanest and most tastefuly decorated hotel we've stayed in for a long time. Staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to make us feel both comfortable and welcome. The food was perfectly cooked and a taste sensation. We stayed overnight Saturday 24th and the theme of clean bright and tasteful decor carried on to the rooms. We... More

My husband , a Guide Dog user, & I were informed by a staff member that we could only sit and eat at the bar and not permitted into the restaurant as ' it's a dog ' whilst the dog was clearly in full working harness ! Upon being challenged that by law guide dogs are permitted almost everywhere ,... More
