Nice cheap and cheerful hotel just of sauchiehall street, busy area of Glasgow. Handy for shops restaurants etc: Nice big rooms, friendly staff hotel maybe a little dated but is undergoing some renovations at the the mo. Parking spaces are at a premium, but always manage to find somewhere with a little walk. Have been a number of times for... More

I slept there for 2 weeks in a single bedroom and it was ok! English breakfast offered every day. Bedrooms cleaned every day. It is close to the city center, about 20 min walking. And 10 min walking from the coach station. Staff kindly and nice The price is higher than hostels' price, as it is a bed and breakfast... More

Within fairly easy walking distance from the Buchanan bus station (a lot of it is uphill) or the central railway station you find McLays guesthouse near the west end of Glasgow. We got there early but were met by very friendly staff so we could check in anyway. The room was large and so was the bathroom. The beds were comfortable,... More

I'm only giving a 1 out of 5 because the Polish staff where pleasant on reception and breakfast 'wasn't bad', typical fry up, 1 sausage, 1 piece of bacon, 1 egg, 1 potato cake, beans and 2 toast. If not for a 'not bad' breakfast I would have gave a 0.5 out of 5! Place was very run down, and... More

Located on the top of a hill in N-W Glasgow, 20 mins. walk to Kelvingrove Museum/ University or City Center in the other side, they offer car parking for 4 GBP/ night and a common breakfast. This hotel seemed to be unruled, is there a Manager ? Is a labyrinthine building, OK, but You can keep corridors and stairs clean... More

I had to stay for 2 days whilst working nights! It would have been nice if the curtains fitted the windows to block out the sun , there were co-workers in another room which was just as bad as mine.... dirty, poorly fitted very old beds & furniture. The duvets are so thin you freeze even in the summer the... More

I recently stayed here with 4 other on a business trip. The owner debited £250 out of my account for 'damages' to which they never made either guest aware of before leaving the premesis (as stated in their T&C's). None of the staff are either helpful nor professional. I found out the owners name but he refuses to call me.... More

Minutes walk from the Buchanan Train station and a short walk to Merchants Square. The rooms where dated though clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful in advising local activities. The price of the room makes for a great value.

Very good value for a single room in central Glasgow. Had room 91, clean, spacious and the bathroom looked new, bedding comfy.Yes, the hallways could do with a lick of paint, but was hoovered and very clean. Would stay here again and the price was excellent.

Our room was clean and quiet. The bed was very comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and kind. The location is about a 15 minute walk from the bus station or train station and there is a small supermarket just around the corner. Breakfast was adequate. Because there is no lift if you have heavy luggage you should request a... More
