“Lovely compact hotel great location in the west end”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

This is a smart and very well run hotel. Just across the park from Glasgow University and the Hunterian it is a great place to stay. Rooms are small but very well set out. Nice finishing. Bathroom also compact but the shower is a decent size and is powerful hot etc.
Breakfast fresh hot and hearty (just do not ask for a full English remember this is Glasgow). The hotel has a small bar but despite this it has a much better range than they kind of railway station mini bars you might expect. As a small group of you could happily relax and have a drink.
Price wise this comes in at the same amount as a nice B&B or a drab hotel. £50-£70 single or double, There are plenty of regulars in this hotel!
Worst points: I was in a downstairs room and the street was very noisy Saturday in the wee small hours. The products are dove / tetley level and there is no earl grey tea at breakfast. I would definitely go back.
Oh and very near the Bon Accord pub if you like your ale/whisky.

I booked a single room for £51 for one night. Have stayed at plenty of places elsewhere that charge twice the price for half the quality. Pleasant spacious room and bathroom, good breakfast, nice area, friendly reception. Highly recommended!

We stayed 3 nights at this very pleasant small hotel in the west end of Glasgow. The west end is definitely the more attractive and less frenetic of the locations to stay assuming you don't mind being off the main drag as regards the big shops and the more fashionable late night bars and clubs. If you are coming from the airport don't get the 500 airport bus ( like we did) get the 746 which stops in the west side of the M8 nearer the bottom of Elderslie Road. The hotel? Well we had a nicely decorated twin room with a smart bathroom. Beds were comfortable and the heating was adjustable - it was cold when we stayed and the room was fine at night. A walk-in shower, good quality TV, drinks making facilities were provided. Breakfasts were pretty good freshly cooked to order. Several good restaurants 10 minutes walk away on Argyll street and one really nice Indian/Scottish at the bottom of the street. Enjoy

First time to Glasgow. George who was on the desk provided maps, directions and advice which prove very useful in helping us to find our way around Glasgow. Good Bus connection to Glasgow airport nearby. George was very friendly and helpful overall. We enjoyed our stay. I hope they change the pillows and soundproof the room a bit more in future.

The staff are incredibly helpful, polite and kind. Our double room was well heated, clean, reasonable size, good shower, and comfortable. Plenty of choice at breakfast and delicious. I would seriously recommend this hotel. I plan to visit it again in the future. You won't be disappointed

We received a warm friendly welcome, checked in and shown to our room within 2 minutes, given an extremely helpful explanation of the location of Hotel in relation to nearby attractions, restaurants & bus routes.
Our room on the first floor was well proportioned, warm and spotlessly clean. At breakfast the next morning we received the same warm friendly welcome, good food, well presented and efficiently served. Bed & Breakfast at this Hotel is excellent value for money.
Overall an extremely pleasant experience with the added bonus of great customer service which can be lacking in much larger establishments . A real ' Home from Home'.

Room Tip: We were delighted with our room on the first floor.
