“Ardgowan House - Excellent B&B!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2012

I stayed at Ardgowan House in Paisley, Scotland this past July (2012). It was just perfect: extremely clean, quiet, warm, and accommodating. They also offer a delicious Scottish breakfast each morning. I'm looking very forward to staying at Ardgowan House again the next time I visit Paisley.

I stay here for business purposes as it is very closed to the airport and to my customer. I specially recommend the en-suite room, at number 94, Townhouse, which is very nice and quite.
Good breakfast.

Room Tip: en-suite room, at number 94, Townhouse

Hotel is in a good location to buses,trains and shopping. Staff went above and behond with accommodation for my family in the summer (2012). My family has stayed at the Ardgowan for a couple of years while visiting family in Paisley. Rooms are spacious and cleaned every day.
Breakfast nice and warm. Nice welcome from all staff.

Well, how do I start.
I stayed at all like 38 nights there over a period of a year.
First week was in en-suite room, which was very nice.
Then the others it was a single bed room, with bathrooms on the hallway, and a sink in the room.

The room was getting cleared every day, fresh towels every day, and the breakfast was really nice. Sorts of cereal boxes, and if i wanted i got a fresh scottish breakfast , scrambled eggs, toast, or anything breakfast related.

The bathrooms with the showers were clean to, they were cleaned every day.

I had no problems at all with locking the doors or with the tv like in the previous reviews.

Staff was/is really friendly, no complains about that.

The only thing i want to critisize is that the bed was quite hard, so that mattress not really thick.
But that wasnt a proper problem.

At all I would recommend this B&B since its nicely located (bus stop not even 1 min walk) and paysley town centre near.

Greeting from Germany :)

I was here for the first three weeks in Glasgow.I stayed here before I move to permanent accomodation. What I can say about this place is just average.the cost is not really worth compared to the quality that you get.luckily the company pays for my stay.

The room can be cold sometimes at night, not sure the heating system works well to heat the whole room.the breakfast is ok..sometimes it is just boring to eat same stuff everyday, not much varieties though.remote control for tv could not work from a distance, have to come near the tv to make it work. room is cleaned everyday, towels are changed everyday. No toiletries are provided.the location very near to Paisley town center, about 10 mins walk to Paisley Gilmour st train station.there is frequent Mcgills bus 26 direct to Glasgow and 101 to Braehead shopping center go along Renfrew Road. very near to the airport, can take MCgills bus no 66 in front of Gilmour st train station.

Many thanks for leaving us a review. I am sorry to hear that you felt cold in your room. The houses have the heating on in them every day.
Our breakfast is always commented on as being so good so I am disappointed to learn that you didn`t enjoy it too much. We have a full cooked Scottish Breakfast, toast, variety of cereals and fruit juice, in our experience we find that all hotels/guest houses provide the same breakfast selection every morning but if any of our guests wish anything different then if they tell us we will do our best to source what they would prefer.
Thanks again for leaving us your comments.

The hotel is in a perfect location for golfers. 5 min walk to Old Course. the staf (Leah bartender and "Ohio St" other bartender) were great and took our gourp of 8 guys in stride. Definatly would stay here again next time.

having viewed the Ardgowan on its website we decided that it looked very nice and would book..thank heaven we had only booked for one night, we were shown to a poky room at the top of the building, with a basic shower unit (the sort i had in my first flat 25 years ago), the carpet was heavily stained, the furniture again basic, we were unable to lock the door when leaving the room to go out for the evening, the only good part was the cooked breakfast, we didn't try the cereal selection as this was in large boxes and we didn't know how long they had been opened. one other thing annoyed me... i have stayed in many hotels and guesthouses and have never been charged for using my debit card (my credit card yes), however i was informed that it is customary to be charged for using a debit card, as i was tired from a long train journey i couldnt be bothered to wander back into town and find a cashpoint so i paid the extra... not right at all in my opinion.. overall a very unpleasant stay and i will not be returning

Room Tip: a tip????? find somewhere else
