Stayed here for 2 nights. Price was doubled during the commonwealth games. But it's fair I understand all the hotels doubled the price in Glasgow. First day was Sunday and their cashier was broken. The reception girl was kind and called me to bring cash. However I didn't have that much money on me when I arrived at 9.30pm. So... More

I've been in Glasgow with work. We stayed at this hotel. Very nice and clean, good location, friendly staff. The only low side is that there was no drinking water in the room. Normally in hotel rooms there is a fresh bottled water. I had to drink a tap water which was really horrible, especially in the morning (left at... More

Stayed here whilst attending the Commonwealth Games. This is a good quality small hotel. The décor is good and the bedroom and bathroom were well decorated, clean and large. There is tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The hotel is 10 minutes walk from the hydro and 15 to 20 minutes walk from Glasgow central station and a... More

Location is a plus, only ten minute walk from the centre, therefore slightly quieter than in the city centre. The hotel a little disappointing. Described as a 4 star boutique hotel,the room although clean had some negative aspects including a mark on the throw on the bed and the carpet quite soiled. We were also allocated a room (room 4...

I am sorry you were misled by the 4 star rating, the hotel is 3 stars, as quite clearly stated on our website. We can only apologise for the soiled bed throw, this should have been picked up by our cleaning staff and on room checks by the Duty Manager. The carpet had been cleaned the day before you arrived...

We found the hotel's location to be good with easy access to Kelvingrove Park, not too noisy at night and a 20 minute walk found you in the CBD. The room was adequate, not a heap of space but had a good ensuite. Be aware that there are no lifts at the hotel so lugging suitcases up to the top... More

This is the 1st time we stayed in The Acorn. We usually go for 4 star but were pleasantly surprised as this is a lovely wee hotel. The girl on reception was really nice, Louise I think her name was. She even serviced our room on our 1st day after the cleaner knocked our door four times on the Saturday... More

We apologise if you felt that the housekeeper was over zealous, the person in question was relatively new and had not up until that point had any guest ask them to come back, she did eventually ask Louise what she should do and Louise informed her that she had to let you know that she finished at 1.30 and if...

Good position for visiting the centre or the West End, entrance to Kelvingrove Park just down the road. Single room not over large, but nicely decorated, clean and a lovely modern bathroom. Bed comfy altho' pillows not too soft. For an old building the dividing walls seemed very thin and there was noise from the adjoining rooms which didn't aid... More

Having just arrived after an overnight flight, we really appreciated the attentive service of the front desk. The room was not large but adequate with a nice view. The place was clean, although the carpet in our room could do with an upgrade. Parking across the hotel seemed to be always available at around £4 per day. The hotel serves... More

We were having a night out with friends in the West End and stayed at the Acorn. Good price, spacious and clean room. Shower was a little cold in the morning, but we slept in a bit so maybe not a lot of hot water left? Did wake slightly earlier than expected as couple in room next to us were... More
