The carpark is under ground and no good if you are in a van, just parked near the entrance to the carpark. The lady behind the reception was friendly, but didn't really tell me anything like where the room was, nor wifi, breakfast and dinner times but she did say that the van might be okay! Reassuring. The room itself... More

I booked a room only a day before I was going to use it because the price was the cheapest in the list of hotels on offer. It is now apparent as to why its so cheap. We were going to be arriving very late and I made them aware of this. We arrived at around midnight. We tried to... More

This hotel is old and run down. Went with students on a student trip and there was a rowdy wedding and drugs being offered to some our adult chaperones. Rooms were dirty doors didn't close properly and old. Wifi was offered but didn't work in the rooms.

Dear Guest I was disappointed to read your comments regarding your stay and particularly your ratings across the board. The hotel management & staff try very hard to ensure good order is maintained at any event booked in the hotel. Regrettably there are times when the excitement of the day overcomes certain individuals and they become unruly at times. The... More

Had to make a last minute booking for a wedding that wasn't supposed to be an overnight. A deal a £35 including breakfast looked like a good option, but with a healthy dose of scepticism of what would await me when I arrived for something costing so little. The room I was in was nothing like the rooms pictured on... More

The hotel must be applauded for employing staff that are truly brilliant, the waiting staff in the restaurant during my stay were very attentive and made up for the hotels dull and clumsy appearance. The food served for my evening meal looked amazing and tasted great. Just a shame that the rest of the hotel is showing its age, the... More

Ok hotel for business trip to Glasgow. Breakfast is above average for this level of Hotel. Good for access to most of the main roads in and around Glasgow. Convenient for East Kilbride Shopping Centre.

This hotel was clean and had friendly helpful staff. Free WiFi. The food was reasonable for travel company tour prices, but one thing that needs to be addressed is that hot food NEEDS at least WARM plates NOT cold ones. Most of the 'touristy' things seem to be in, or the other side of, Glasgow, and as such take a... More
