“Parking very expensive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

First the hotel and staff: The staff were so lovely and friendly and couldn't do enough for you. They must have heard every stupid question under the sun but still managed to deal with it with a smile on their faces and a huge dollop of good grace. The reception staff were lovely as were the staff in the breakfast room and the chamber staff as well - everyone was delightful and always had a friendly word or a laugh with you - so welcoming!
The room: a basic double room - nothing fancy but very comfortable - very clean and actually one of the cleanest hotel rooms I have seen for a while. The only two things I would take them up with are that the heater seemed to go off during the day and the room was quite cold and there was no wall socket for a plug near the bed. In this day and age with mobile phones, etc one would think that would be the most obvious thing to have.
Breakfast: So much I couldn't eat it all and the costs were actually very reasonable - porridge was very good too!
Downside: Parking! The car park next door to the hotel costs £14 per 24 hours - you get a £2 discount from the hotel reception, although this didn't work for me the second time round and I paid the full amount but, because the staff were so good, I didn't really want to cause any hassle for the sake of £2. It would be good if the hotel and car park were to offer a much lower discount - TIP: If you are going here there are spaces for parking in the road opposite the car park and it is much cheaper but it is on a meter and be careful to get back there in the proper time.
Oh, and if you are going to the King's Theatre - it is a 2 minute walk away - ideal!

Excellent location, right next door to train station with regular service into the centre of Glasgow. Friendly staff and clean, comfortable rooms. Receptionist girls were especially helpful and are a real credit to themselves and their employers, very well done.

Stayed here overnight as we were going to a gig at the barrowlands, really good value and great service from the staff who were friendly, helpful and professional. Room was a double with en suite, bit small but just fine for an overnighter, and clean and modern. Only downside was the remote control didn't work! Breakfast was great too, as much as you can eat for £7.99, try the sausages, they were lush!!

Brilliant for the price. Great location, great wifi, clean room, comfy bed, good breakfast, nice staff. Very satisfied with the stay. On a par with hotels 3x the price. I was staying in a twin room with one friend for 3 nights.

The great thing about Premier Inns is that you know exactly what you are going to get - no awful surprises. The reception will be competent, the room clean and well-furnished with everything required (except a safe), the bathroom will be fine, and if you need to eat, the restaurant will be as competent as everywhere else. This one at Charing Cross has the advantage of being well placed at the west end of Sauchiehall Street, close to the magnificent Mitchell Library and the equally magnificent Bon Accord pub.

Room Tip: you get a great view from floors 10 and up!

Easy check in and easy check out. Friendly receptionist!
