Paisley Hotels

Set in the historic, wild-green county of Renfrewshire - in the lush central lowlands of Scotland - Paisley’s large sprawling streets, alluring architecture and hospitable local charm make it a perfect town for a culture-infused holiday. Paisley rests on the banks of the glistening-blue White Cart Water River, which meanders through the town - past tempting timbered taverns, magical museums, angelic abbeys - and out into the rocky, forest-swept countryside. Paisley’s calm, refined nightlife make it ideal for a family or couples getaway.

Things to see

Paisley’s rich, remarkable history comes to life when walking through the towering white-stone walls of the Abbey, a sublime, 12th century gothic marvel, where the silvery spiked spires spear the pristine, blue skyline. After, amble beneath the shady arching trees that line the river, and take in the sight of Anchor Mills - a majestic 6-story Victorian mill, where the fierce red-bricked walls used to house hundreds of looms that wove beautiful shawls. The incredible tale of Anchor Mills is told at the nearby museum, which commemorates Paisley’s historic industrial heritage. Finish your day by visiting the Paisley Arts Centre - set in a smooth-stoned Victorian building with a mossy, tree-fronted facade - and catch theatrical performances, side-splitting live comedy, or simply relax at the cool, family-friendly café-bar. In the evenings, treat yourself to one of Paisley’s independent, elegant restaurants, and enjoy freshly caught parsley-peppered fish.

Hotels in Paisley

Paisley’s hotels range from refined luxury to convenient and affordable comfort. A handful of centrally located 5-star hotels - set in sheer grey-stone Victorian buildings - offer butler-like service, resplendent green grounds with fine-trimmed lawns and colourful flowerbeds, and king-sized rooms. Speckled along the quiet outer roads of Paisley, a number of reliable and familiar complexes offer affordable 3-star service, with warm queen-sized beds and cosy bar lounges. Finally, dotted throughout the surrounding Renfrewshire countryside - with its hidden dells, babbling brooks and verdant meadows - several guesthouses offer a relaxed stay immersed in nature.

Where to stay

Central Paisley is perfect for easy walking access to all the main sights and attractions. Staying centrally means that pleasant evenings arrive with effortless ease, as Paisley’s refined seafood restaurants, sleek scintillating bars and welcoming traditional taverns are at your doorstep. For complete convenience, however, north of the centre is ideal for those on a fleeting visit or holiday, as Glasgow Airport sits on the northern outskirts of Paisley. For a romantic stay in eden-like surroundings, the rolling countryside south of the town - toward Barrhead and Neilston - hides heavenly B&Bs and rural retreats.

How to get to Paisley

Paisley is perfectly connected to rest of Scotland and south throughout England by rail, road and air. By road, the M8 motorway runs down the northern side of Paisley, racing through nearby Glasgow and connecting into England. Paisley Glimour Street Station - a grand, turreted Victorian masterpiece - provides excellent and efficient services to Glasgow and Edinburgh, from which connecting services dart down to London. Arriving to Paisley by air is equally easy, with speedy shuttle buses providing round-the-clock services from Glasgow Airport to the town centre. Once in Paisley, friendly bus and cab companies can whizz you around and about.
