Would just like to share my bad experience of Smiths Hotel Kirkintilloch with everyone: we were there for a family meal last night and I asked a member of staff if there was somewhere private where I could breastfeed my baby, the guy looked awkward that I had asked such an outrageous question and said he'd go ask, when he came back his suggestion was that I could use the disabled toilet! I asked if he would like to eat his dinner in the toilet to which he replied no but that's the only option. Couldn't believe in this day and age that a hotel could have this crap attitude, plus I then couldn't relax as I knew baby would need fed soon and that I had no-where to go! My hubby complained and again the toilets were suggested, he then pointed out that as they we a hotel did they not have a spare room I could use, so eventually we were given a key for a cold and draughty room, but what a hassle, Smiths Hotel really need to sort themselves out and until they do I wouldn't recommend and breastfeeding mums use this place as you will be made to feel uncomfortable to say the least!
