We arrived in Glasgow and at the hotel early (around 11:00) and thought we would see how early we would be able to check in (and get rid of our hand luggage) and were surprised when the hotel staff checked and told us we could check in straight away. They could have just said 2pm as already informed but they... More

This hotel is in a good location. Walking distance to central Glasgow with bus services close by. Modern, clean room with good facilities except the wifi which was very bad. Staff acknowledged the wifi was not working well and were trying to fix. I was there for 4 nights and it was bad throughout. Breakfasts were excellent and the staff... More

Great place to stay. Comfortable and clean room. Fantastic service from the receptionist when I checked in. Absolutely no complaints at all. Looking forward to the free breakfast in the morning. Very easy parking just over the road.

Room is small, clean, but WiFi reception is bad from my room, and an average of 110 pounds per night is pretty hefty. Breakfast is good though, English, continental, plenty of croissants. The reception has a bar that doesn't look very inviting but plenty of people are there each evening.

The hotel is well placed right in the city centre with many bars shops and restaurants within a few mins walk. The hotel is OK much like any other in the chain. My only gripe is in the bedrooms. When you go to sleep and turn the lights out the light switch shuts off the power to the electric plugs?... More
