The hotel is approximately 30 minutes from Glasgow airport and situated close to main traffic links. First impressions are that it isn't a hotel but it looks more like an office building!
The reception seemed dark but was spacious with a very modern design. Staff were very friendly and welcoming with an efficient check in process. Access to the bar/grill and restaurant can be made directly from the lobby. Access to all floors was via two lifts which were quick to respond.
The bar / grill provided excellent quality meals at reasonable prices but with limited menu choices till 6pm. After this time, food is provided in the main restaurant. Breakfast is served in the same area from 6.30 – 10am (Monday to Friday) where a small cold, buffet style table is available. Hot food is ordered via table service. The wait for coffee / tea can be quite long at busy periods.
Room 216 had smart, modern décor but was quite masculine in appearance. Facilities available included: air conditioning, tea / coffee making equipment, satellite TV, iron & board and hairdryer. There was very limited hanging space for clothes storage and no drawers. This would not be ideal for a couple or long stay. The bathroom was quite spacious with a good power shower but no bath. Complimentary toiletries were provided and lots of fresh, clean towels. After seeing the modern design of the hotel, it was disappointing to find a plastic sink in the bathroom! Reminiscent of cheaper hotels….
Overall this hotel was great and I would definitely stay here again but not quite not sure it rates the 5 stars is it given?
