For a business stay, McLays was fine - clean, budget priced (like less than half the price of a Premier Inn, and Breakfast included!!), and very conveniently located. Sure, I wouldn't bring my wife here for a Holiday, but that isn't what I need when I'm working. The staff were fine, and the (en-suite - make sure you specify that)... More

Fairly cheap accommodation that is about 10 minutes to the centre of Glasgow. Also one street back from Sauchiehall street, with plenty to eat and drink on the cheap. The room I stayed in included an ensuite bathroom. The place was clean, beds comfy, although most of the interior is fairly well worn and out dated. For the most part,... More

Extremely rude and abrupt receptionist, lack of communication regarding their "hotel" policies, i.e., we were not told to email a confirmation prior to arrival although they took our card details when booking. On arrival we were told that booking hadn't been confirmed by email from our Company therefore card payment wasn't accepted. When we said we would cancel, we were... More

Good value guest house, nice rooms with all facilities, excellent breakfasts and friendly helpful staff. Close to a good selection of pubs and restaurants with traditional food. Bus stop near with access to city and sightseeing bus, reasonable walking distance to city centre for shopping, sightseeing bus bests for museums, gardens, cathedral and viewing ll of the city.

This B&B is a very good place to stay when you are traveling alone or with your family. It is close to the city centre, the staff are very friendly and you get real value for money. I highly recommend it.

The receptionist is extremely abrupt and unfriendly. A club opposite the b&b blasts music at the weekends which I didn't realise and as there are only single glazed windows I could hear every boom, when I complained the receptionist said I was the only one making a complaint! Breakfast below average but dining room staff pleasant. The room wasn't bad... More

I stayed in this dreadful place for one night - never again!! Our room was on the top floor (59) it was a step back to the 70's - worn out furniture,lumpy bed,glass hanging out of the windows and a filthy shower - hadn't seen a proper clean in a while. We had the company of approx. 10 German Rugby... More

The room itself was OK the wifi was great for getting work done, the shower was really good although the shower head needs replaced, but as I was not worthy of any attention in the morning I did not have the chance to inform anyone. The night porter seemed a bit put out at having to let me in after... More

Hand a over night stay after a night out, room was clean, nothing spectacular, very basic. The guest house is in bad state of repair. The staff were friendly enough. The food was basic and canteen like. The dining room, again was old fashioned.
