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.

Wasn't expecting much until we had an amazinglying friendly welcome and check in from , I think,the owner. Room was massive, spotless and very warm. Bit TOO warm,to be fair.

First impressions weren't too good as the lobby looked tired and the receptionist was harried however our room was absolutely amazing: new everything! We stayed for 5 nights and found the location to be very convenient. Our room was overlooking the street but it was very quiet. This Guest House needs some upgrading as the halls are marked up and...

Stayed here for two nights and found it to be very basic. It's more of a hostel than a hotel or guest house. Rooms were clean and basic.Shower was fairly hit and miss roasting one minute and cold the next one. The staff serving breakfast were very nice and attentive. It might be an idea to extend the breakfast until... More

Let's start with the positives - great location and friendly staff. It was fairly quiet for a City centre location, tbh, and fairly clean, too. That's about it! On the negative side, if you're into shabby chic then our room fitted the bill perfectly. Sub charity-shop furniture, a bed that looked like it had been rescued from a skip in... More

The hotel is located 15 minutes walk from the city center, in a quiet street . Access by car is easy , although the road is very steep . The parking is not very expensive. The hotel seems old and access to the rooms and sometimes tortuous, but full of charm.

Basic and tired but clean, friendly staff. Quiet and good location with Charing Cross train station fairly close. Breakfast was good and freshly cooked, although I was always early due to work commitments.
