I have always stayed at the Premier Inn, St George Square but this was booked by someone else. Well, too my surprise, this hotel was lovely. Everything I could have wanted and more. It was warm, cosy, friendly and close to the City Centre. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed here the night before our flight with the parking package (only downfall is lack of signage into the carpark and heading to the terminal building as there are works going on), nice spacious clean room and bathroom, free wifi, excellent menu for evening meal, we didn't have breakfast as we had to be at the airport at 4am....

We are booked through our frequent flyer program and I thought for 2 nights it was right in the city and a good price for a room that included breakfast. However on arrival I realized whilst they were happy to welcome us and had set up the cot in our room it wasn't really a "family" hotel. More business and... More

I stayed at this hotel in Sep 2016. The place has a convenient location, walking distance of the main city center attractions. Bus Tour has a stop few blocks from there, and George Square, where most of tours depart from is less than10 minute walk from the hotel. Service was the best feature, very friendly staff who genuinely care about... More

If you'd like to be very close to the centre of Glasgow City (5 minutes of by walking to Argyle Street) and at the same time in quiet place for spending the night, you should choose this hotel. Another reason for this choice is EXCELLENT quality of service. Staff is very hospitable and friendly.

We stayed in this as part of a package organised by Rail Discoveries. Hotel clean. Staff helpful. Breakfast limited but fine.

Definitely a budget hotel, but one of the better ones. It's clean and very basic. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms again are clean, basic but comfortable all the same.
