Good location within walking distance of main town. Staff were very friendly and breakfast portion sizes were excellent and he would always ask if you wanted more. An amazingly comfy memory foam mattress in the bedroom. Bad bits: room was not serviced every day or towels changed. Not much parking. But overall enjoyed my stay.

This is a low-cost "guest house" and it is exactly what it is, I thought the staff were friendly, my room was clean and safe and it was cheap, which is what I was looking for. Cooked breakfast in the morning and my room are very basic but it had everything I wanted. I was only staying for one night... More

I have nothing bad to say about my stay here, but nothing particularly memorable for being wonderful either. The ensuite bathroom was one of the most recently fitted and cleanest I have seen on my travels around Glasgow recently, but the bed had seen better days - there was a person sized dent and when I moved along to try...

My first visit to Scotland to watch a show at the Hydro in Glasgow, and I booked myself, Dad and brother into a triple room with en-suite bathroom for one night. At £55, including breakfast, this was fantastic value. Don't think of this as a hotel, think of it as a family-run guest house / B'n'B. When paying for this... More

Booked at short notice for a weekend break. The hotel was dark and unwelcoming. It took an age to book in at reception. Eventually got to our room which consisted of a double bed pushed up against the wall and a barely functional wardrobe. The bedding appeared to have seen better days and did not look all that clean.The bathroom... More

A single traveller I booked here for a week in May 2013 as have stayed there before. As last time the room was satisfactory with everything clean and OK. Cooked breakfast was very ample and staff always friendly. For a budget hotel would stay again in the future.

Charged DOUBLE for a tiny room with a small double bed, jammed against the wall the night of the Bruce Springsteen concert. No coffee in room only tea. Cooked breakfast ok --- if small portions, but no side plates for toast. Had we not been ripped-off this would have been an OK experience for the money. We will never use... More
