Stayed here for a few nights with a group of friends. Service perfectly friendly with staff making themselves available to guests at all times. Lots of CCTV on every level which was a bit surprising but we never had any issues with rowdy or noisy guests. We had a room on the ground floor and one on the top. The... More

Also the toilet is barely large enough to fit a person, it doesn't even have a sink ( this is also the only toilet on... More

The hotel was in a great location- but then there's loads of hotels on the same street so that's not saying much. We booked this hotel for one night and then decided we were staying in Glasgow for two nights but having read such bad reviews of Smiths hotel we booked a different hotel for a second night. I think... More

Great for backpackers looking for private rooms. Lovely breakfast included with friendly breakfast staff. Lady at reception was not so friendly which is a shame as she is the first person you meet when coming into the hotel. A little run down but excellent location.

GOOD: great position, close to town and excellent local pubs and cafes BAD: rooms small and dank and have few facilities, reception staff attitude is not a reflection of Glaswegian people in general (everyone else is amazing, some Smiths staff are modern-day Basil Fawltys), access from car park and in stairwells is VERY narrow DETAIL: This hotel is VERY old...

Could do with updating but for the money it's well worth you even get a breakfast in with the price. There is also free parking at rear of the hotel, which is covered by CCTV. The rooms where clean n the staff where helpful.

Please note we didn't stay in the hotel as there was a mix up with bookings but when we arrived the receptionist was rude to say the least. We asked if we could leave our bags before check in as we were early, the lady honestly looked like she couldn't be bothered with us. When checking our booking she was... More

Booked a last minute deal one Friday afternoon for a night out. £34 bed and breakfast. Free parking at back of hotel for about 6cars. CCTV is hooked up to reception so car relatively safe there. Hotel is basic and our room didn't have a bathroom but we knew about this when booking. Communal showers and toilet available. Some rooms... More

This hotel wasn't bad at all - stayed for a night while visiting the city and found it very good. Booked a twin room (which had a double bed with an extra single bed in it!) - decent and friendly staff - en-suite - TV and clean sheets. HOWEVER....the kettle didn't work in our room, which for an Englishman, a... More

I have previously reviewed this hotel as good for the price as it is what it is. Unfortunatley this time I was charged £63 for one night which is a deal buster for me as I could have had a much better hotel for the same price. Not saying I won't be back but this is a £35 to £40... More
