The hotel has unrealistic expectations about the level of building works that can be carried out while the hotel is in use (and when the work should take place). We were woken every day by drilling and hammering after 8am, despite assurances that there wouldn't be any noise until after 11. If you're here for work, won't be in the... More

Refurbishment nearly finished in this central hotel and looking good. We had a large 4 person room which felt spacious and had comfy beds. Breakfast was a wonderful selection and hot items well cooked. Pool with jacuzzi was a really good size for a hotel. Staff always friendly and helpful. Only problem was really slow service on reception and key... More

In spite of ongoing extensive renovations this is a great hotel and handy to everything. The Glasgow Hop on hop of bus stop number 20 is just metres away. Sauchiehall street shopping mall one block south. Major Glasgow shopping precincts and the theatres are all within walking distance. Our newly renovated room ticked all the boxes . Houskeeping was a... More

After having an unhelpful telephone conversation with a member of reception staff regarding my overnight birthday stay, which was booked in error on a Friday night instead of the Saturday of the same week, we contacted the hotel manager. Can I say he could not have been more professional, courteous and apologetic. He accommodated our request without hesitation and upgraded... More

Booked a standard twin room for a visit to the theatre with my 8 year old grand-daughter. At check- in we were upgraded to a luxurious family room with 2 double beds. Extremely spacious and comfortable. At breakfast the waiter was very attentive to my grand-daughter, arranging for her to have hot chocolate and just generally making her feel special.... More
