We stayed here for one night after attending an event in Glasgow. Room was clean and comfortable, if on the small side. Bed was smaller than we're used to but slept reasonably well. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious (and did away with the need for lunch). All in all, a good value base, especially if you're... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night on our final day in Scotland. It's budget-friendly, and that definitely shows in the poor quality of the bed and pillows. While the room we had was a good size with cute decor and nice bay windows to allow the cool breeze in, the bed was absolutely terrible. The mattress would sink... More

Dear Calypsobeat. Thanks for your review. We take every single review very seriously as our aim is to constantly improve and in fact achieve the highest of standards. I must say that I am somewhat surprised about your comment that mattress was poor quality as our hotel underwent a full top to toe refurbishment. We had never had any complaints... More

A really nice hotel. Very clean, comfortable, quiet and in a great location. All staff were friendly and helpful. My single room was the best single room I have had in a hotel. A really nice surprise; and it made my 3 day stay so pleasant. The bathroom was spacious and the clothes and luggage storage excellent. Very good value... More

I stayed in two different rooms in this hotel. We came in for one night, traveled around a bit, then came back for a few nights before flying home. The hotel is placed in an old row house set and is beautifully restored. Each room has its own bathroom, and the rooms are well laid out. As you might expect... More

We flew in overnight from the states and they kindly took our bags at 9 a.m., though it was hours before check in. The front desk clerk gave us maps and some advice about what to do in Glasgow. When we returned at 2:30 our rooms were ready. Our room, 102, was in the back on the first floor and... More

Wanted to stay some place close to the west end to be near my daughter and knew there was plenty to see and do to entertain our Australian relatives. This hotel was ideal and within walking distance to everything going on but close to the tube into the centre of Glasgow. Staff very welcoming as we arrived early just really... More
