We were offered an online upgrade. We didn't get it without complaining. We were told the room was ours from 3pm. It wasn't. The staff are charming , the upgrade was beautiful when we got it. You need to be wary and on top of things.

I spent five nights in a "deluxe double" in August. The room was spacious, very nice decor, the plumbing all worked fine (often a pet peeve of mine), the TV was of adequate size, I liked the towel warmer (which doubles as a sock dryer), the staff was friendly. My only complaint at this hotel is that on Saturday night... More

I have stayed twice at this hotel, both times before an early train journey to London.The hotel is ideal for this due to the fact that it is in the station itself. The rooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. The staff are very friendly , even Gordon from the concierge desk remembered my name and said how nice... More

We stayed as part of a group trip and were very pleased with every aspect of our stay. The room was spacious, everything worked, beds were comfortable and toiletries very good quality. As we were a group we were served dinner in a separate room and had a table d'hote menu. The food was first class, served very efficiently and... More

An excellent choice for anybody travelling from London. Beautifully refurbished - very confortuble beds in a very large room overlooking the station concourse. A very good breakfast -we were given £10.00 tokens for the breakfast instead of the standard rate of £16.00. We checked having a breakfast on the station but it would have worked out a lot more expensive!

We stayed here for one night whilst in Glasgow and found the hotel to be good. The location of the hotel is brilliant if you are planning a train journey! The room itself was perfect, the bed huge and comfortable. One strange thing that really annoyed my wife was the bath, it had no taps, it only had a shower... More

We stayed here for 7 days to see Commonwealth Games but like all hotels in Glasgow this was vastly overpriced with rooms costing about 3 times the normal rate with breakfast NOT included. The staff on reception were so friendly and helpful every time I needed to see them and they gave us plenty of information. We had a double... More
