I stayed only one night in the Guest House, but it was ok. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room (under the roof) was very small, but clean. The breakfast was plenty and good (typical english/scottish).

It was ok, the room was large, the bed was comfortable, the bedding was clean. The television was new and huge. Tea & Coffee facilities were good, the kettle was in very good condition. Downside was the lack of attention to detail - this could be a wonderful room if some care and attention was spent on it, small things... More

Last weekend I was keen to book a night out in Glasgow, but the world piping championships were on so accommodation was extremely limited. I tried my useful favourites and even Airbnb but nothing! McLays was one of the few places with availability so I took the chance and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel although... More

This is a guest house built from adjoining apartments so very meandering way to get to rooms and many stairs. But the rooms are comfortable and breakfast great. The staff are very friendly and helpful and knew my exact booking straight away on arrival . I booked 2 nights in a single ensuite and two in a double ensuite because... More

Bed is confortable, bathroom very clean, good hot water in the shower, It's a quiet place, I recommend it. Only 5 minutes walk from city center and 10 minutes walk from bus station. Good breakfast too.

Sheets were dirty, bathroom dirty, unpleasant staff, what wasn't dirty was really worn. Nothing as it looked in the photos. Common spaces were very worn. Really in need of updating and sanitizing! Although reserved for seven nights, checked out after one night. Yuck!

This B&B is clean, homely and comfortable with fantastic reception and staff with obliging cookie. I have stayed there twice and will soon make it a third time in 2016. Although the breakfast times are established , cookie used to prepare mine before the time , when I asked him
