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

Arrived down the night after the referendum! Glasgow was a bit scarey! The hotel was lovely, clean, warm and situated bang in the town centre near the station. Room for 3 of us and breakfast was included - We only stayed one night then off to Turkey but would def stay here again. Great price thanks.

We chose this hotel as the location is absolutely perfect. The building looks quirky from the outside with its circular staircase and square archway entrance, and its a real slice of old Glasgow in the heart of the city. There is a huge NCP car park behind the hotel so parking is not an issue. The staff throughout the hotel... More

Ideally placed for a city centre stay. reasonably priced too. Stayed for one night on a trip to Glasgow for Scotland game. Handy for the shops, bars and restaurants and what ever else Glasgow city centre has to offer

Stayed in this hotel after Christmas and for NYE. Good size rooms. Clean, warm. Friendly Staff. Great Location very central to bars, restaurants, shopping, rail. I would stay here again. 1 thing I'm finding in the UK no lifts only down fall.

Bed is comfy. However the room was laid out all wrong, the room is tiny so why put the bed smack bang in the middle and you have to tip toe round it? The floor was wet after I had a shower, dried it up with the towel and the towel was black afterwards. The room and entire hotel was... More

Chose this hotel based upon location and price. I was right about the location, but at virtually same room rate as better known chains felt it offered very average value. No lift at all. A bit smelly and tired in the halls. And the bathroom defined the term small and basic. Bed was comfortable and room was fine. However central... More

I stayed alongside 2 others for 1 night on a Sunday in December. Paid £65 for 1 room with a double and single bed. Room was very dark but clean and bathroom spotless! Found the room very warm over night but cold in the morning. We were in room 204 which was on the side street across from what we... More
