Welcoming the opportunity to support a smaller, local, family run hotel group, we had a very enjoyable four night stay in this lovely hotel. As a listed building I liked the traditional features, such as the atttractive staircase with wooden bannister, decorative cast iron spindles and low rise stairs, the bedroom sash windows, panelling and high ceilings. These original aspects have been tastefully complimented by a pleasing modern decor, furniture and finishings. Our room was an acceptable size, clean, with a green, gold, brown and sand colour scheme, and was well equipped with the usual amenities. The beds and pillows were comfortable and the bathroom was fine, a good sized shower with plenty of hot water and quite powerful, apart from two drops in pressure. A torn sheet and two 'blown bulbs' were swiftly replaced. The staff, in particular George, were generally friendly, pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was basic but adequate. As a vegan I did not expect dairy free spread and soya milk to be provided (Hilton had both and even the budget Premier Inn always has soya milk) but I suggested in my feedback form that it would be a relatively low cost option to offer this guest focused service. Using our own spread, we enjoyed fruit juice, grapefruit segments, mushrooms, beans, tomatoes, hash browns, toast and tea for breakfast. We thought the rate represented good value for money and the parking with the vouchers supplied at reception was only £4 per day. We were not bothered by any noise from the street and slept well every night. Location was excellent and we cannot understand why other reviewers did not consider it to be central. The city centre is a mere 15 to 20 minutes walk away, there are plenty of good bars and restaurants in the locality, Kelvingrove Park, the art gallery and museum, the Hunterian, Oran Mor, the Botanic Gardens, Byres Road and Ashton Lane area are all easily within walking distance. A stroll down Kelvinhaugh Street, over the footbridge, along the riverside walkway and across the Millenium Bridge takes you to the Science Centre and the excellent Riverside Museum is even closer. However, the main reason we chose this hotel, apart from the generally favourable reviews, is it's close proximity to the fantastic vegan bar and eatery 'The 78'!
