This hotel is in a great location right next to the SECC and next to the river. The lobby of the hotel is pretty much like a Premier Inn, very small with a mini shop where you can buy ready meals, drinks etc. I imagine it must get a bit crowded when the hotel's busy. Check in was fast + friendly. My room was fairly small but adequate with a lovely comfy double bed. You get an iMac which is great so long as you're used to Macs. Internet connection, free Wifi, was a bit dodgy, kept losing connection which was frustrating for me.
The bathroom is tiny; no bath just a power shower which is fine for most people but I do like a bath before bed! Unfortunately they have tiled + grouted in white and the grout had discoloured making the bathroom look slightly dingy even though it had been thoroughly cleaned.
The A/C in my room was incredibly noisy so I switched it off, unfortunately there was still a high pitched whine from somewhere leaving me feeling like I had tinnitus. My room faced the street so there was some noise from the traffic leaving the concert at the SECC. On the other side of the hotel the rooms look over the river so I'd advise asking for a river view room.
Breakfast was superb, lots of choice, good hot Scottish breakfast + great service.
Overall, for the great deal I got on this hotel, I'd definitely recommend providing you don't want a bath!
