I stayed at this hotel for one night in a single room. The hotel is located close to George Square in the centre of Glasgow, but it is down a dim and dirty alleyway that some people would feel unsafe using. The hotel seemed like good value when I booked it, but when I got there it was shabby and... More

Stayed here for one night through booking.com very last minute, and was really impressed with the place. Great staff, nice room and free continental breakfast. If you're looking for the Waldorf Astoria, then go stay there and pay for that. If you're looking for a quirky, friendly and good value place bang in the city centre you should definitely give...

Sorry, but our room was filthy. After inspecting the room, we left. Window ,curtain and radiator were badly stained. Towels in bathroom were clean but discoloured and stale, and when I looked at the towel rail I couldn't believe the amount of dust and dirt on it. To top it all, water was leaking from behind the wc. Money down... More

I was staying to be near the Royal Infirmary, where my mother-in-law was receiving treatment. I had a single room and it was nicely furnished. The bathroom was absolutely lovely. The staff were very helpful and friendly. It said a continental breakfast was included, but in fact they gave me a free token for a cooked breakfast when I arrived.... More

Liked the location and the traditional building very much. You are one street away from Queens Square with the railway station for the North of Scotland at the far corner. Upstairs rooms are excellent and there are single rooms. Stayed here one night on my way from south of England to a stay on the Small Isles (Isle of Eigg).... More

The location of this hotel is great for a night out in Glasgow. Staff were friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. I was concerned noise would be an issue but we had no problems. Breakfast was fine, you can add cooked breakfast for £3 (continental is standard). Food was fresh, would have been better if there were some... More
