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

I know a lot of people have said negative things about McLays, but I can't complain too much. It's reasonably cheap, the room wasn't en-suite, but was in good order and decor with flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities etc, breakfast was decent as well. Decor in corridors could be better though, possibly a repaint and not great... More

Good value but sadly in need of a major redecoration. You get what you pay for especially near the centre of a big British city - I do not know how anyone can give this 0/10, but equally 10/10 is just as baffling. Staff are friendly and helpful, breakfasts adequate, but the overall state of the building leaves a great... More

We paid £67.50 for this room however full price the room was £76.00. The cleanliness of the hotel was disgusting with stains on the walls and carpets leading through the corridor stairs and room. There was gunge at the bottom of the glasses provided in the room and there was a severely cracked window which to myself and my partner... More

Very good place to stay. The staff is very friendly and they are serving good breakfast. The room is very tidy and comfortable. If I visit Glasgow again, I will definitely stay in McLays Guest House. Big thanks to the staff that made us happy to deal with them.

The area was not great - although Charring Cross station is close by. The hotel is very dated and in need of major work. The room was along a maze of corridors and I would consider it unsafe if there was a fire or need to evacuate. There was a lot of noise from other rooms and people in the... More

Very nice and friendly staff did their best to make our stay as pleasant as possible! Massive TV and quiet area but still next door to the city centre. The ladies at the reception were super nice. We would definitely stay there again!

Very dated,there was an electric radiator in our room with the wheel missing that was it.The shower went really hot to cold and you couldn't regulate it.The lift only held one person (did you ever) mirror hanging off the wall in our room and the whole place needed a good lick of paint and all the carpets renewed. As for... More
