A quick check-in at this Glasgow City Centre Hotel by a newbee receptionist. The room was an executive room facing Bath Street, with the strange sloping windows, which do open at the top for air - as there is no air conditioning! - I cannot believe someone hasn't fallen against the sloping window and cracked open their head. Easy to do with some alcohol and wanting to see down the street! - As we were heading to the Glasgow Concert Hall to see Dara O' Briain - (very very funny) we did not eat in the Hotel as there are many eating houses nearby. - Quite noisy outside at night, but hey it is Glasgow City Centre and thats what we're here for! - It was St Patricks day after all!
Breakfast was quite amusing as there appeared to be about 6 different members of staff seating, taking orders, serving and clearing tables all at once. - After taking our room number, we were seated by a waiter who said he would be back for our order, but didn't leave a menu! - On asking a waitress for the menu - she asked who sat us there and asked for our room number. A menue was delivered by someone else, then another took the order and yes you have guessed it, it was served by another waitress, who asked us to confirm what we had ordered before depositing the plates.
Checking out was even quicker than check-in as there was an almighty water leak coming out of the electric strip lights in the hotel foyer and the flustered receptionist was busy with plastic buckets - she did ask if everything was okay and asked us to leave the key on the desk - We did no have any additional items for the bill, which was paid up front - but we didn't receive any invoice anyway.
Would I go back - yes for a quick city overnighter it is perfect for Glasgow City Centre - Parking was a 5 minute walk to the Concert Hall NCP - £10 for 24 hours.
