I used McLays 4 or 5 times over a number of visits back to my native Glasgow during October and November. It's myriad of rooms was interesting - a bit like the Tardis once you get inside. Could do with a lick of paint, but clean and warm - and secure. I have stayed at 5 star hotels on business... More

This place was about as average as it comes by European standards. Small room, but plenty warm. The water in the shower was difficult to control temperature, however. The breakfast was a good, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is pretty good. It's not directly next to anything in particular but it is pretty much in... More

I stayed here while attending a conference in Glasgow. Other hotels in the area were charging a bomb- this hotel was not. The staff were cheerful and friendly throughout and answered all questions I had. There may be some issues with the decor and maybe the state of the carpets in this hotel is not great but I am more... More

It was a late booking in September and I didn't have time to read reviews. I thought the hotel was great. However the first impression was not brilliant because the decor and carpets in the corridor were a little tired. However my room was a pleasant surprise after that - it was beautiful, quiet and recently refurbished I thought -... More

I booked a night for myself and my boyfriend at the end of November as we had concert tickets and needed somewhere cheap to stay. We found the hotel and had to drive round the block for about half an hour before a space became available. The woman behind the reception desk seemed friendly enough but also seemed stressed as...

One night and one and a half day and we had our car just outside the guest house. Could not be better. Nice and friendly staff which informed us very well. Beautiful veranda with flowers to enjoy. The room big but quite old so the corridors but god value for money. We would stay there if we come to Glasgow... More

It was not like I imagine. It's like a hotel. The facilities are good. The breakfast was superb. Near to the city and peaceful. The person in charge and the worker are very good and helpful. Very welcoming and this guest room is affordable. I love it and I'll stay there if I go to Glasgow again

I stayed here for two nights and it was like home away from home. The breakfast was superb and the staff were friendly. Judging by the price, the guest house offers top services equal to some of the top bed and breakfasts. I will definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Glasgow.

The receptionist was lovely and friendly, and the rooms were clean and well furnished. My room backed onto the Garage nightclub though, and I was treated to (loud enough to make out words) Britney Spears techno remix and 'Come on Eileen' until 4am from the adjacent building.
