Found this hotel through lastminute when I searched for Glasgow, but be advised it is a good 15-20 minute drive to the city. It is however situated in a pretty little village in the Clyde Valley which involved a trek along along some icy winding roads. When we arrived the receptionist told me the quote from lastminute was wrong, and I would have to pay extra. When I showed her the confirmation email she said she would have to talk to the Manager. We were given the choice of a Triple with a double bed or a room that slept 4 on singles. We took the key to room 8, the Triple. The room was very ordinary, too small for a dedicated triple and only had towels for 1! As we were only staying 1 night we didn't bother. The bathroom was old and had mould in the grout. When we tried to watch the (old) TV only a few channels worked and the picture was poor. So we turned the TV off and tried to sleep only to be kept awake by the incessant droning from the air conditioning units outside of the window. It was comparable to trying to sleep in an airplane! Wireless internet was included in the price.
We did have breakfast as part of the deal. This was well cooked, to our order, and served by a waitress who looked after us. We couldn't try the haggis as it was out of stock.
This hotel looks the goods when you walk in, but our stay proved it was only superficial. If the new owners are refreshing this business they still have a ways to go. I was not asked again to pay more, and would have refused after the night we had.
