We stopped over in Glasgow for a night in the small double room. On our way to the Scottish Highlands, no problems at all, just the small parking lot to the rear, quite difficult to park, £5 charge. Breakfast was OK, full Scottish breakfast available, was hoping for a continental style breakfast, reasonable quality. Would definitely stay again, good location... More

What a disappointment. I was staying for 4 days and, had I been staying longer, I would have considered looking for somewhere else to stay. The best thing about the hotel was its location in the west end of Glasgow and very close to Oran Mor, which was important to me as I was attending a wedding there. Apart form... More

After paying £100 for my partner and I to stay for one night in the VERY small double room I was disgusted to be welcomed by a totally revolting brown stained white towel on my bed, the inside handle of the door was hanging off along with a screw (or two) missing from the Yale lock- this make me feel...

Well placed within walking distance of Glasgow University (conference) and the West End restaurants and business district. Also an easy bus or taxi ride into the centre of Glasgow. The staff were friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our included full, cooked breakfasts

We stayed here for a weekend and got the family room. The location is good, you can get the train or taxi into Glasgow centre, George Square or Glasgow green. The staff were welcoming and helpful whenever we needed anything. Breakfast was great too. The main reason for the low rating was the cleanliness of the room or should I... More

Stayed here for 1 night in April & found the hotel to be great value for money. The location is ideal & close to a variety of restaraunts & bars. My only critical advice for this hotel might be to skip the breakfast.
