We were recommended this hotel in Glasgow by my brother-in-law that had stayed there 5 years previously. We also researched it on line and later found the photos taken to be rather out of date. As the place doesn`t look as appealing now as it did then! Probably also taken 5 years previously. The staff were very helpful but the... More

A ten minute walk from Glasgow Central railway station, close to main shopping area and bars. Situated on a quiet street this hotel provides the basics required for a good night's sleep. The decor is simple but "tired" in places. Decent bathroom/shower room In our price, we had a Scottish cooked breakfast, which was good without being outstanding. Staff were... More

Stayed here for one night on business, the hotel is bang in the city centre so handy for shopping. The staff at the hotel were helpful and friendly, and room rates were good. However, the room itself felt dirty, the decor wasn't great. The floor had bare floorboards and the windows looked like they needed replaced. Felt more like a... More

This is a great hotel that seems to be family run - There is some noise on the side facing the bars - so bear that in mind. The staff are friendly and the rooms clean - wifi is great - there are some eccentricities that you get with independent hotels - I have stayed here twice and in both... More

Had a great stay 15th to 19th of June. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room clean and comfortable. Had a slight problem with the shower, but it was fixed the same day. Will look forward to my next stay in this hotel.

Not a great hotel at all, yes it has a great location but there were plenty of other hotels near by all great location and I would imagine a lot cleaner and more comfortable. We booked a twin room which we were handed the key to and pointed in the direction of (ground floor in the other part of the... More

We order two triple rooms with 3 x single beds in each. When we arrived only one had 3 single beds, the other had a double and a single meaning that two guests had to share a bed (£61 to share a bed!). I spoke to reception, showed him the email where I specifically asked for this and showed him... More

Our room was nice and clean, however, it was in need of a wee spruce up, there was scuffs on the wall and the furniture was a bit worn. It was a bit noisy outside when the pubs and clubs came out, but what else can be expected in the city centre?! Staff were lovely, although we didnt have breakfast... More
