The hotel was better than expected. Based on some reviews I wasn't sure what it would be like but it was absolutely fine. This will be a very similar review to the Rennie Mackintosh Station hotel as it is owned by the same group so similar facilities. Decent location near central station. Most importantly room was clean. Tv provided a... More

This hotel provided us with everything we wanted for a short break in Glasgow. It was convenient for shopping and the breakfast each morning was excellent. The room was quiet and very comfortable, providing bottled water each day.

Centrally located hotel, large rooms, wi-fi in rooms, good breakfast buffet, helpful staff. Happy to keep our left luggage, securely, on both day of arrival and day of departure. Only down side - lift was small and much in demand. Will be first choice for future visits with my better half to Glasgow.

Less than 5 min walk from Glasgow Central station. The room was spacious, clean and tea/coffee making facilities included. Hop on and off bus (stop 10) is just across the street and thus very convenient. The lift was extremely slow and walking up the stairs was faster. Seriously, the breakfast needs huge improvement. Perhaps, some tips from Jamie Oliver?

Perfectly located for visits to Glasgow city centre or riverside, rooms are spacious, free wifi and breakfast are included, it has its particular charm, but could be cleanlier and with more helpful staff.

I was a bit worried as I had booked it because it was inexpensive and in reasonable distance of the SECC, reviews seem to be mixed and was expecting it to be not too good. I was really pleasantly surprised. Room and bathroom were fine, service was good and I thought the breakfast was very good for the money. I... More

Very conveniently located. Our room 227 was nice sized. The breakfast buffet was very nice and a good value considering it was included in our price, but......the wifi was hit and miss, the small elevator for the size of the hotel was inadequate. The mattress must have been the worse one in the hotel, it just cant get anyworse than... More
