Lovely Staff, Clean hotel. Rooms have no toiletries, just soap dispensers. Tea & coffee a bit stingy + there's no biccies! Nice breakfasts. Can be noisy, but is a city. Parking is a nightmare so best to use public transport or taxi. Ideally situated for sights.

The staff were very friendly, the room was nice, beds were comfy, room had a TV and kettle, decent internet, free continental breakfast, it's a close walk to the city center (St. George's Square), what's not to like?

The location is good for those wanting to visit locations in the centre of Glasgow. The breakfast is decent and the room okay. The towels were changed every day, the reception was helpful.There are some points that cause the review to be somewhat less appealing to me. Due to it's location and the rooms location there was not much sunlight... More
