An excellent location, in the heart of the city. Four blocks from bus station. I came from Edinburgh in one hour bus. Great hospitality, you feel like in home. Rooms are huge, very comfortable and very quite. It has a nice view restaurant on the top of the building and a warm bar near the lounge.

Welcomed by Shannon and Owen, both super pleasant and helpful with our many inquiries. We travel from Canada for first time. Very comfortable room, amenities and location. Great Waxy O'Connor pub next door full of plentiful options and great people.

This is a great wee hotel in the heart of a busy city. It's location is excellent for transport links. The rooms are very nice, spacious and comfortable. Literally on the doorstep, there's great shopping, theatres, bars and restaurants. If you are not sure about where to go, ask the reception where the merchant city area is, for bars and... More

Great location in Glasgow, but the rooms felt rather drab and the beds were quite dated, saggy, worn, etc. Hotel staff were great, pub next door is absolutely beautiful (and convenient, being next door, I might add). However, given the price, I'd search for another hotel next time in Glasgow.

The hotel is fine for a night or two for business. The rooms are adequate and have everything you need although they could do with a little TLC and some new more modern furniture. The TV was very small so difficult to read any menu choices on screen! Nice touch with the decanters and minibar in room. Executive lounge on... More

Children free weekend so we decided to take an overnight stay at this hotel. From the moment we went to reception to book in until we left the staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel foyer is not overly big which gives you the feeling of cosiness. The room we had was perfect and spotlessly clean. Well done

With a perfect location - on the corner of the Buchanan subway stop, one block from Queen's station and three blocks from Central station. Very nice rooms (four star) and a fabulous (though a bit dated) concierge level lounge on the top floor that you should get on concierge floor for - or befriend the front desk for the access...

This hotel is bang in the middle of Glasgow just off George Square, and couldn't be better placed to take advantage of what Glasgow has to offer, which is plenty. Although parking is a minimum 5 minute walk, it's more than made up for by the warm welcome, comfortable rooms and cheery staff serving breakfast. Whenever I'm in Glasgow on... More
