My daughter and I stayed at The Willow Guest House for 2 nights this past weekend. We were in Glasgow for shopping and a visit to the theatre. We were welcomed at Reception by a gentleman who was kind enough to advise us where to eat on our first night and also gave other advice on the surrounding area. The... More

I stayed at the Willow for one night with a friend. We were in Glasgow for shopping as well as sight-seeing. Since we were only staying for one night, we were looking for somewhere cheap yet central, if possible with breakfast included. Hence we chose the Willow! I agree with the other reviews that the front office staff are quite... More

Well, not only could you not swing a cat in the 'single' room, you also couldn't open the large window without ripping the curtains off the rail. Male receptionist had the same attitude as lurch from the Adams Family and took a good 10 minutes for him to come out of the little office and give us our keys without... More

We booked two rooms at this B&B as the website looks really good. We had room 1 and room 5, and OMG the hotel inspector would have a field day. Room 1 - the glasses were dirty still had lipstick, blue old curtains, duvet covers smelt stale, the bed wasnt too bad. Room 5 - The shower tray and door... More

Stayed overnight December. Staff very friendly . Bedding ,new. Only let down is standard of carpets in room . Very poor. Breakfast was ok,but the smell of cooking seems to permeate throughout the building. Average at £55 a night B&B.

Stayed here with my daughter for one night. Staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast the next morning was very nice with a good selection of food. Overall I would recommend this place for family's as it is child friendly.

I was in Glasgow on business doing training - and my days were set to be physically and mentally draining so I needed a room where I could come back to, chill out, be comfortable and have wifi to do some work and contact my family. I booked the hotel online and had already seen that they were quite a... More

The man who checked us in was rude and had a 'cant be bothered' attitude. The room was stinking of stale alcohol, BO and smoke. No top sheet on the bed. Bathroom had hairs all over the floor. Probably best to wipe your feet on the way out. £90 for the night was horrific!! Wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed for three nights, the room had a dirty carpet, no top sheet( makes you wonder if the quilt cover was clean). Bathroom was just ok, but shower pressure was dreadful. Breakfast was terrible, we only ate there one morning, greasy and over cooked, staff very loud and no personality! Strong smell of breakfast cooking throughout the early morning-dreadful... More
