The 4th bed in our room was a small double (1.30 m), there were 3 arm chairs and a desk and the matresses were fine. Showering (in the bath tub) meant to hit your head at the ceiling ... No cleenex, nor cotton tips, but good quality shower gel and Lux soap. Breakfast (so called 'full English') was rather simple... More

Not sure why this place gets such negative reviews. It's right in the city centre. Staff very friendly, cheap & nice breakfasts. Rooms not great but at the price your charged it's ridiculous to be complaining.. Be warned do not try smuggle food into your room - it does not go down well at all.

We stayed here the other night, arriving 5 minutes before check in...we were asked to sit in the reception area where I had the pleasure of listening to the staff private life. Once we were able to go up we were advised if we were to go out we would have to leave our key with the front receptionist for... More

Visited Glasgow in June with the family. Walked from the train station to the hotel. But if you're carrying luggage, don't go thru Sauchiehall St. unless you've got steel calves. Walking uphill definitely not recommended with luggage and children in tow. The hotel itself is cosy with lots of turns and stairs and the kids loved it. The room we... More

Parking spaces are at a premium, but always manage to find somewhere with a little walk. Have been a number of times for... More

And 10 min walking from the coach station. Staff kindly and nice The price is higher than hostels' price, as it is a bed and breakfast... More

Within fairly easy walking distance from the Buchanan bus station (a lot of it is uphill) or the central railway station you find McLays guesthouse near the west end of Glasgow. We got there early but were met by very friendly staff so we could check in anyway. The room was large and so was the bathroom. The beds were comfortable,... More
