This is a comfortable hotel next to the Clyde and just a 10-minute walk from Glasgow Central Station. Only 50 yards away is a bus stop for the open-top bus tour of the city. The room was comfy, and the bathroom clean. The staff were very helpful after I had a fall in the city and raided their first aid... More

A warm welcome, clean, comfortable rooms and very well situated for shopping, dining out and sightseeing. Because hotel is usually fully booked, self serve breakfast can be a bit hectic, food is good.

Pizza restaurants next door and one of the oldest pubs in Glasgow next door to that. 50 mters away from the Hotel is a Bus stop which you can get the sightseeing bus here to see all the main places in...

We stayed at this hotel in September 2013 when Scotland were playing an international football match. Hotel manager assured us that any noisy or rowdy behavour would not be tolerated & we were not disturbed all night. Staff were very helpful. Hotel is about a 10 minute walk from both Central & Queens Street train stations.

We booked and paid for accommodation at this hotel over eight months ago for the Commonwealth Games. We were contacted four weeks before the Games to say our room had been double booked and they could not give us a room. We were moved out to the Airport hotel, which meant we had to get the bus into the city... More

We stayed for 8 nights during the Commonwealth Games. It was an excellent location for us being close to train, subway and bus routes, but quieter than a central hotel.. Situated on the Clyde we could walk along the river front to both Glasgow Green and the SECC. We were also only 3 minutes walk to Argyle Street and the... More
