The hotel is located walking distance from the city centre of Glasgow. The rooms and shared bathrooms are very clean and overall it's a nice guest house, except for the rude staff. Especially the two ladies who work in the morning when we went to get breakfast! Not good customer service at all.

Staff was friendly and helpful for local restaurants. Room was super clean with nice view across tree-lined street. Breakfast was good with good quantity. Walking distance to all kinds of night life (and not far from from city centre). Would come back in a heartbeat.

First of all the good things: it was acceptably, clean and quiet.

Bad things: there were so many holes in the walls haha. I don't understand how there were so many. The shower... More
