We stayed for 1 night for a concert nearby. It is clear upon check in that the hotel is being operated by receivers which explains the rundown conditions and poor state the place is in. Staff were all friendly which is a credit to them as they are probably all about to be made redundant. Outside of the building is... More

Stayed here on Saturday with my boyfriend as we were going to a concert at Bellahouston Park. Room was a good size, although the bathroom could do with updating. Breakfast was excellent. Plenty of parking spaces were available.

The room was clean but a bit old and tired but apart from that we enjoyed it and its good value for money will... More

I chose this hotel as it was the nearest to Burrell collection. It,s near enough with a car but an hour's walk on foot. Not much character but the waitress at breakfast kindly mad porridge for me as it wasn't on the menu

We also stayed here for the commonwealth games, booked for 3 nights, the hotel is very dated and dirty, we complained and was moved to another room, not much better than the first. Spoke to the manager who told us the hotel was in administration, and the shutters could come down at any time. The staff are very good and... More

Was fairly late in booking a hotel for the Commonwealth Games and was absolutely horrified at the inflated prices being asked for. Opted eventually for this hotel as it was cheaper than most but consequently went with a very low expectation level. As previous reviewers have stated, the hotel and its rooms are in need of a facelift but the... More

I am sure this was once a nice hotel - but it is now well past it's sell by date. The rooms are plain and rather small. The bathrooms are looking tired (with a dribble of water from the shower head I the bath) and the overall appearance of the hotel is somewhat jaded. The breakfast buffet was OK. The... More

My room was very dated and not particularly clean even after being cleaned. The silicone in the bathroom looked like a child had done it and was not water tight. The complimentary toiletries were non existent. The staff at this hotel are amazing and deserve better. They were extremely helpful and every request was met with a smile and impeccable... More
