In a converted old building I actually walked past the building as it was poorly signposted - and it was raining hard so not good visibility anyway. An old building that has been converted into a hotel. My room was spacious and quiet despite overlooking the street. Had to climb up many stairs to get to it - no lift as in many other converted old buildings.Though I was given no information I did discover after a day or so that they do provide breakfast provided you give some sort ot advance notification and there was some sort of menu in the room indicating that one could order food somehow but no information provided on check-in. If you have been booked by your company they still expect you to pay with your own card unless you have something in writing to enable the card that booked you in to pay. Then they will give you the statement /receipt NOT in your name unless you request specially. (They added a pound to the bill - presumably for this as I was not told what it was for).
There is a TESCOs express a block away where I bought provisions as the room included a small fridge which was a welcome addition. Adjoining the room was a fold out settee bed also ready made up so my room may not have been typical. a most welcome bath in a modernly refurbished en suite bathroom was also a welcome change from the shower only option provided in some UK hotels. Despite a range of lighting through the room with a adjustment switch at the door I found the lighting not quite as bright and strong as I would prefer for reading and working. I had phoned ahead to check that the hotel had adequate wifi for work purposes but although they confiirmed upgraded, free wifi unfortunately it did not work for the two out of the three nights that I stayed there owing to some technical problems reported to their provider. They also do not given out any information on how to connect nor is it provided in any of their literature or handbook in the room. In conversation with a person I met through my work during this visit to Glasgow turns out he had the same experience at a Best Western hotel in Europe where he had checked that there was wifi but it did not work during his entire stay.. But there are tea-making facilities in the room and they are a hotel that still top up a small pack of biscuits each day of your stay. In terms of value I have paid less for better hotels in London and Europe that included breakfast. The desk staff included one very helpful young man otherwise it tended to be functionally adequate but no more.
