“Great place, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We were v impressed. Lovely staff, quiet room and great brekkie. Veggie sossies and potato cakes are great bonuses for vegetarians like us.
Beds were comfy, shower was heavenly. No shower cap provided, though.
15 minute walk from Central Station. Great restaurants nearby.
All in all, a great hotel experience at the price.

Stayed May 2014, traveled with family

This is a great hotel that I stay in every time I come to Glasgow. The rooms are good sized, clean and comfortable . The location is great as it's just off Sauchiehall street but in a quiet location so you get a good nights sleep. Staff are really friendly .

Inexpensive for such a well-located upmnarket hotel. Good facilities including accommodation and meeting rooms. Reasonably-priced food. No parking - a central Glasgow problem - but helpful staff and WiFi facilities available. OK bar but limited seating. Kitchen closes at 9.30 with no flexibility.

Room Tip: Leave your car at home and travel by train

I like the Novotel Glasgow for its central location and modern facilities. Also, it is often possible to get a more favourable rate (circa £79 per night) when other central hotels are charging over £99.00 for broadly similar accommodation and amenities. The hotel has a good restaurant in 'Elements'. I used their Room Service option while there and it was well presented, hot and fair value for money. Also, on this visit I needed some information about bookings for Glasgow and Edinburgh for mid-May, and Valerie on Reception was particularly helpful in searching what their brand might have to offer.

Room Tip: Ask at Reception on check-in for info on the quieter floors.

We stayed here for one night on a leisure trip to the city. Myself, wife and 9 year old daughter. The reception staff were excellent, efficient and friendly. Perfect check in and assistance in getting a parking space in their small car park. Breakfast was excellent and the dining room staff pleasant and efficient. Great location for the center of Glasgow. We would stay here again without hesitation. We were given a room on the rear of the building as per our request as we had read of possible noise from the street. No issues other than some girl with a loud voice partying before and after her night out. Not enough to disturb us though.

Room Tip: It is a city center hotel with people there to enjoy a night out. If you want peace, cose a room hig...

For the reasonable price there were some good facilities such as a nice bathroom, tea and coffee etc. However the room was uncomfortably hot on the first night which made it hard to sleep. There was no way to adjust the temperature and although the staff helpfully provided us with a fan for the rest of the stay it did seem unusual to require one in Scotland in April..

The room could hardly be described as cosy either with a cold light and slightly sparse bed with hard mattress. But for the price these things didn't bother us too much.

The Novotel is in a good location easy walk to the city centre and the West End and right next to the School of Art. Good range of nearby bars, restaurants and cafés.
