“What an amazing family hen night for my daughter. From booking through to breakfast in the morning many many thanks to Paul Gerard the manager who made sure from the beginning to the end that we had an amazing time. Paul was there to get us on arrival, made sure we were happy with our rooms. He drove us to Si where he had organised a fantastic meal and cocktail demonstrations, our host for this was amazing and we all got to try. Not sure how Paul managed it but he was also there first thing in the Morag to make sure our stay finished with a fantastic breakfast. Will certainly be back and will recommend to friends. Thanks Paul you are a treasure, hope your appreciated we certainly did!!”

Staff went far and beyond what was expected of them, penthouse suite is amazing and well worth the extra charge. Upstairs Conservatory is a lovely part of the hotel for a wedding ceremony and food and service was excellent. What more can I say , would love to relive it all again. Thank you to Claire, Sarah, and all the staff who helped to make this an incredible day. Would not hesitate to recommend.”

The Waterside Hotel
“My daughter chose the Waterside Hotel for her wedding reception on Saturday 18 June 2016. We were fortunate that the weather was excellent, which showed the location to its best advantage. This was my first time attending a wedding here and I was not disappointed.
Ryan was our "MC" for the day and under his guidance everything went like clockwork with the arrangements. The good weather meant that the guests were able to take full advantage of the dedicated outside space which was set aside for us. The large foyer and the spacious dining room had plenty of room for everyone.
The wedding meal was delicious. Those guests who had specific dietary requirements were well catered for.
A special room was available for the use of the bride during the day.
After the wedding we stayed on as overnight guests in the hotel. The room was large and very comfortable, with splendid views over the Firth of Clyde to the island of Arran. We reserved a room with a sea view on booking and I would highly recommend it.
Our fully-cooked breakfast was served in the main restaurant. One personal dislike is having to make my own toast but that is par for the course in most establishments nowadays.
Full marks to the Waterside and thank you for making my daughter's big day so special.”
