“Nice location for a great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

This hotel is located near central Glasgow, but is still fairly affordable. The staff are very welcoming and are keen to fulfill even the oddest of requests. I really liked staying at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone with a limited budget who wants to have a place close to downtown Glasgow.

We had a very spacious and well-appointed room (203). Excellent buffet breakfast and hotel convenient for city centre.

i have stayed here 3 times with my wife and i honestly think its the best hotel in glasgow the staff are superb check in great nothing is a problem, dont look at you funny if you have got this hotel on a offer. the only complaint i have is i have emailed 3 or 4 times lately looking for a booking in march time for my birthday and would like a good offer as i have sent 20 or more of my work and freinds there to stay so i have made them have a extra few bookings. if you could email me back i would give this hotel 10/10 but no reply is a bit of a fluster as i would love to stay here again but might need to look for another place but for any one wanting a top hotel i really think this is the best and ive stayed in most of them in glasgow. i really would get booked up for a great wee break.

Room Tip: find directions before you go so you dont get lost

Nice hotel in a really good area for venturing out. Rooms were okay and breakfast was nice. No bar and no free parking. Good hotel for short breaks but for me I would not stay again but that's just because it had no bar.

I had super stay here. It's an older building so you have to be expecting a more European style hotel. But everything was in good shape and charming really: Walls and doors freshly painted, updated bathroom fixtures, plenty of hot water in shower, good wi-fi in the room, etc. The staff were super friendly, efficient, hard-working and nice: I can't recall any time where I have felt everyone from the front-desk clerk to the people staffing the breakfast buffet all seemed to like their work and did everything they could to keep things ship-shape. I was concerned about the safety of a ground-level room but ended up feeling fully secure (the sticker on the window saying there was an alarm helped). The breakfast buffet was quite good: coffee machine that makes expresso and cappuchino as well as filter coffee, apple and orange juice, fresh croissants, jams, fruit, eggs, etc. The hotel's location is excellent also, with both downtown and Kelvingrove in walking distance, and the Glasgow School of Art right up the way. Would definitely stay there again.

Good hotel, central location in Glasgow, with American standards (although the room was tiny and cramped) which we had not always experienced in other Scotland country inns/hotels. Staff was friendly, breakfast was good and generous. Not an overwhelming, but nevertheless adequate/satisfactory experience.
