Looked for hotel in Glasgow for the 2014 Commonwealth Games & GPH had quite good reviews. Price £243/night. In fact, this hotel had hiked up its price extensively!!! This is a VERY BASIC hotel that has, clearly, exploited visitors to the city bc of an international event. We wouldn't have paid more than £90/night, if we'd known what it offered.... More

For the price, this place is great value. The hotel is not close to Glasgow city centre and you do need a taxi to get as far as Byers road as well but taxis aren't expensive so it's not a big deal. The rooms are clean & comfortable. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast was one of the best... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in early July then one night 7 nights later. This hotel is advertised as a 3 star and lives up to that expectation and the prices are good for the quality of surroundings and breakfast one is afforded. It is generally clean and tidy and offers a comfortable lounge and dining environment... More

Myself and two friends booked into this hotel for 2 nights on 11th and 12th July for a boys weekend in Glasgow, we are not rowdy and all in our 50’s, so I would say are not a noisy problem. When we arrived at the hotel, we paid, and the reception staff were friendly and took our payment and advised... More

I must admit to not expecting much from the Pond when looking at the pictures but all we were looking for was a bed for the night near the event we were going to. I'm so glad we chose the Pond. Don't be fooled by the exterior of this hotel it is beautifully finished inside with helpful, friendly, local staff... More

Visiting from Owen Sound, Ontario for a few nights in May with my wife and teenage sons, we had the pleasure of staying at The Glasgow Pond. All staff members were welcoming, friendly, and attentive. We even got a visit from the hotel's manager, ensuring that all met our expectations - and it certainly did. Rooms and dining area were... More

We stayed in the Glasgow Pond hotel for a graduation in the SECC. The hotel was very comfortable, good size rooms and very clean. The breakfast was fresh and very good. It is located on the Great Western Road, with easy access to all locations in Glasgow by car or taxi. Taxis were ordered from reception, always less than 5... More
