We stayed at the hotel for a very quick overnight. Arrived back to Glasgow after 9pm to the Queen Street station and walked about 10 minutes to the hotel. The hotel is under construction currently. We booked through Hotwire and got a great price, but I know some people don't like dealing with construction. We got a newly finished room... More

The room was comfortable. The air conditioner was quiet and effective and much needed on a warm night. Breakfast was ok but at 20 past 7, 20 minutes after opening they ran out of cooked items and we had to wait for re supply. It was plentiful though - when it arrived. - but I couldnt understand why they had... More

We stayed at this hotel for four nights whilst my daughter was attending a dance competition at the secc arena, the hotel was being refurbished this didn't effect our stay at all. Our room had recently been refurbished and was lovely we had a double executive room which was a good size. The beds were comfy and the bathroom was... More

In fairness they were still working on it when I visited. I've been a fitness club member for longer than I can recall. The hotel refurb came with a fanfare. However, the pool refurb is disappointing to say the least. The changing rooms have been tarted up with little thought to practicality. There's very little seating and half the lockers... More

Part way thru a refurb. Major works downstairs, reception very noisy and public areas boarded up to screen works. Breakfast was nice until the drilling and sawing next door started up. Pre 8am seemed a bit early for that. Rooms up on 7 floor look to be post refit. Excellent rooms, even comfy, modern, clean and nice. Loved the look... More

I had a monthly pass but couldn't use the gym but was given 4 free passes to go back after refurb. I took along my friends but it was nowhere near finished. Firstly, there was no one at reception so had to go look for someone, nowhere to sit in the changing rooms, again they have only been refurbed partly,... More

They are currently under a major renovation so the lobby and different floors are a mess however the staff were very kind and accommodating. We arrived early, before our room was ready, and they happily stored our luggage for us and then even brought our bags up to the room. The room was beautiful and modern. The food was also... More

The rooms have already been renovated and ours with a queen size bed was nice enough. The bar was nice and the restaurant (used for breakfast and one dinner at part of our Globus tour of Scotland) was okay. The entrance and lobby however are being renovated as of mid-August 2016. Good location, about two blocks from Sauchiehall Street pedestrian... More

When we arrived, renovation was still ongoing. In fact, rooms were supposed to be fully finished but they were not. Lobby, lifts, were all part of the the revamp and this created some inconvenience too. That meant the overall feeling is one of a dated hotel -particularly the bathroom. Parking facilities within the building is a plus. Location is superb... More
