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.

Room was fine, on the ground floor, no noise and everything worked. Breakfast was certainly not 5-star, but edible and for the price... More

Where does one start?? Positives are its location, which is good and its price which is also good (70 sterling for a double room with breakfast for 2 nights..but that's about it: Breakfast was a disappointment, bacon like a rock and inedible, sausage (one) awful spoonful of beans, and piece of pudding and some kind of tatty bread, toast that...

This was the second time I have stayed at the hotel. Rooms are very clean, staff very helpful. Excellent breakfast which is included in the price. Only a 10 minute walk from bus station. Would recommend.

+ Cosy and clean rooms. Not far from both Glasgow University and George Square (about 15 min walk). Friendly stuff. Good breakfast - shared bathroom (one for two rooms) - not very convenient system of wifi (you have to ask for a new code every day)

Easy to find. About a 10 minute walk from central station. Made to feel welcome. Rooms adequate And very clean . I have used it many times, but like all hotels that I book it depends on the price. Breakfast very substantial and included in the price.
