On arrival didn't look too bad from the outside, until we got in, the lift can only fit one person in at a time so we took the stairs which were old and smelly, the carpets were like carpets from an old nightclub because of the stench, paint was worn and windows were dirty and cobwebs all over. I booked... More

5 of us Stayed here for 1 night last weekend. I have to say there are some pretty bad reviews of Mclays Guest House on here, so we were not expecting much. The Good: The price: £140 for 5 people (£28 pp including breakfast) The Location: just off Sauchiehall Street (city center) The view: Fantastic view from our (top floor)... More

On arrival it seemed like a nice place until you enter and the stale smell of fat hits u. Receptionist was friendly and roughly guided us to our room,which was up and down stairs,through two doors that were... More

I'm quite surprised to read some travelers actually praise McLays Guest House, as my experience was far from something to praise for. I traveled with a friend and we spent one night in a double room, which was at the back of the building. Our visit to Glasgow was an ex-tempore trip and this was the only reasonably priced hotel...

Reading past reviews before I went (and after booking) I was a bit apprehensive. We go to Glasgow as a group of mature ladies on a theatre trip, so need somewhere to lay our heads in-between eating and shopping - this place did the trick perfectly. Ok, so the carpets are grubby, the paint is peeling, the soft furnishings are... More

We stayed here September 5&6 at the start of our first trip to Scotland and it was a great introduction. Anne at the front desk was very helpful and always ready with a smile and a laugh. All the ladies here work very hard but are willing to stop and have a word and a laugh with you. This hotel... More

The rooms were very good, spacious, clean and had everything you wanted in them. The Hotel staff were great, the breakfast was excellent. The Hotel is just a short walk, down a very steep hill, to the centre of town. 8 ladies (of varying ages - not on a hen night) really enjoyed our time here and if we come... More
