Our room was tiny, dated, dingy with a 2 shared bathrooms for 5 rooms on the floor. The walls in our room were cracked, peeling and some parts missing. The bed has the comfort level of wet cardboard. Would never stay here again, actually we rebooked for a new place the night we checked in.

It's a nice place, the staff is great and available. The room I was in was small, but clean and functional for my needs. Breakfast was nice, and the bathroom/shower room really small but, again, clean and I did not mind them. What matters the most to me is cleanliness, and it was indeed very clean. Small, and not too... More

We stayed in the kelvin apartments next to the hotel. Good points were it was clean and the TV was big and the location is great. But it is very dated in terms of decor. Completely lacks any wow factor and feel disappointing when you walk in. It could be amazing. Mis matched crockery. Felt it was expensive for two... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in June. Our first trip to Glasgow. We booked it because of the great price! We will return for many reasons: affordable price, great service, excellent breakfast and ideal location!! It's a cute character house. Small rooms, but nice lounge if you're just hanging around. Wifi was very unreliable, but service... More

It didn't say anywhere that the bathroom was shared with other guests, as we found out on check in. This meant I had to walk past the dining room and the lounge en route to the toilet. The room was dusty and musty, and there was no way of opening the window. It set off my asthma it was so... More

Stayed for 3 nights, the room was fine, not much space but we were so busy sightseeing we didn't spend too much time in it. Walls are like tissue paper so expect to hear your neighbour's every cough, snore and footstep. Didn't get an ensuite but the toilets and shower were not too far, well-kept and clean. Breakfast was great... More

Old Victorian townhouse renovated as a hotel. Good location by Great Western and Byres road if you want to visit the Uni. Breakfast is good, you can select a plate from including black pudding, eggs, bacon, tomato and rashers. Coffee, tea and fruit juices are included. Toilet and shower are communal.I

My partner and I stayed here with my sister and her husband very recently. We booked the only room they had left which had two double beds (room 1). The room was in the basement looking onto the rear carpark. It was spacious and clean with tea and coffee facilities. The decor was a bit out-dated but i expected this... More

My husband and I stayed here with my sister and fiancé. The only room left was a room with two double beds... This wasn't a problem, we were only in Glasgow for the UFC so we'd all be very drunk and crash out by the end of the night anyway. Hotel looks lovely from outside. Quite grand inside too. Our...
