Places to stay in Renfrewshire

I was born in Paisley and lived there for 38 years before moving to Canada. I loved the town and the people I met through the years. Like most places, the people make the town, whether they be what you class as good people or not - it doesn't matter, as all the characters make Paisley wonderful as it is.
