We used the hotel during the commonwealth games and the Swallow hotel served a purpose as a base as it was close to venues we had tickets for. The place needs a lot of work as the dining room ceiling was dripping water into buckets scattered around the floor. The rooms were in need of ripping out and refitting. Staff... More

The Swallow is currently (September 2014) being operated by receivers, which may mean that its status will change in the near future. But at present it offers good value for a short stay, moderately close to the centre of Glasgow. It's terminally tired and feels quite run down, yet is safe and most things still work... My room faced on... More

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.

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
