Excellent location, quaint & quirky, Friendly check in staff, good clean sized room, comfy beds, minimum noise for city centre Excellent breakfast for great value overnight stay, good service from happy breakfast staff, Would stay again & recommend to folks not wanting a big chain hotel.

great location with all the bar's clubs and restaurants that Glasgow's merchant city has to offer. Rooms a little tired but perfectly functional. I paid £3 extra for the cooked breakfast which was pretty good continental breakfast looked OK but basic. All in all a great wee place to stay for the price you pay.

The rooms should be warm when you arrive (especially if you're staying for more than one night). I simply hate the differentiated breakfast rates, you either fully include it or not... but paying extra for a decent breakfast is not fair. The continental breakfast was less than decent, with a woman just serving enough for a couple of persons. Besides...

Such a lovely hotel. The staff were welcoming. Fresh towels and such everyday. Our room was clean and warm. Tea and coffee facilities (could've been a bit more but was refilled each day). 24 hour reception so you hand your key in when you go out meaning i don't have to worry about losing it. The location was fantastic. No...

Plain, simple, functional. I liked it a lot. We booked it because it was 2 mins walk from the venue for our Hogmanay event. Consequently, the price was more than 3 times their regular room rate, but hey - everything is more expensive at Christmas and New Year, so I don't really mind the extra, especially when you consider the...

It is a good room with a good location. Although the building does not have lift. The staff was so helpful. The room was perfect for 2 people. The included (free) breakfast only serve uncooked food like cereal, bread, yogurt, etc. But it is worth it with the good location with clean and comfort room.

The hotel is well situated,just of Argyle St in the heart of the city centre.Excellent service rooms were spacious with the usual facilities.A continental breakfast was served but for £3extra you could have a full Scottish breakfast which was lovely.I would most definitely use the hotel again.

I can sum this up in three words: it was alright. Three of us got a room for £67 for a night with continental breakfast included: total bargain. All we really needed was a room to drop off our things and to sleep at the end of the day and it checked all those boxes. Yes, the room was a...

A great location, close to the shops and transport. Also next to a few clubs and bars, which could be noisy at night, but what do you expect? Don't stay somewhere next to a club if you want complete peace and quiet. The room was small but practical, clean and a very good bathroom, hot water and power shower. Breakfast...
