I booked this hotel on the day we travelled up to Glasgow and got it at an excellent price. As a last-minute bargain I wasn't expecting the best room in the place and so wasn't particularly bothered by the lack of a view and the extremely small bathroom. The ground floor bedroom itself was small but clean, well-maintained and comfortable, with a decent selection of TV channels and adequate storage and furniture. Although the room was very warm the windows opened fully onto a central courtyard/light-well and there was an efficient, quiet desk fan provided. Unlike another reviewer, I wasn't worried about the fact that one window didn't have a lock for 'secure' opening as I couldn't see any easy way for anyone to get in due to the enclosed nature of the space outside and the height of the window itself.
The hotel is located literally two minutes from Sauchiehall Street and almost all of Glasgow's main shopping areas, theatres, nightclubs and other attractions are within walking distance or a short taxi journey. There is also a multi-story car park very close by and the hotel will provide a voucher for a much-reduced rate. Our car was parked from Friday evening to Monday morning and it cost us less than £15. We didn't eat at the hotel as there were so many restaurants and other food outlets so close by, but the staff we had contact with were friendly and efficient.
I've stayed in everything from hostels to five-star hotels and, to be completely honest, it would have been nice to have had enough space to open the bathroom door fully (the towel rail prevented it from doing so), a decent glass instead of a plastic tumbler that was so thin that it split when I took it out of the packaging, and bath taps that were easier to reach (someone shorter than me would have had to get into the bath to reach past the glass shower screen). On the other hand, we spent a fair bit of time in the room due to atrociously wet weather and were quite comfortable. There was some noise from the corridor outside and from the nearby stairs but I expect that from an older building and it didn't disturb us. I'd definitely stay there again but would expect a better room if paying full price.
