Stayed two nights at this new boutique hotel in Glasgow. First off, the location is fantastic!! Easy walking distance to all the major attractions, and shopping.
The room I stayed in was beautifully done. The decor was terrific, and every detail was thought out. I had zero complaints about the decor and accessories in the room.
The front desk attendants were ok. They weren't overly helpful or friendly, but they were alright.
The doorman was useless. Completely. Almost never remembered to open. the.door.
I had purchased the B&B rate, so breakfast was included. It was just a cold buffet, which didn't do much for me, but when I asked about porridge, they provided it happily and at no charge. In fact, the girls working in the breakfast room were the best part of the service experience. They were polite, helpful, and tried really hard to meet my every need.
But, and there is a but for me. The room just wasn't clean enough. In fact, the first day I was there, it wasn't really clean at all. The bathroom needed to be cleaned again, but I didn't get there until evening and I couldnt' be bothered. For a 5 star hotel, this should have been a done deal. It was not satisfactory.
The second day, the cleaning was much better (and that was without me having a chance to say anything).
They try really hard, with nice extras like Tunnocks cakes instead of just tea and coffee. They leave both still and sparkling water in the rooms in the evening. The toiletries are ok, but not special.
All in all, I would say that this hotel was more of a 4 star experience for me. I will stay there again, in hopes that once they iron out some of the service issue, it gets better and better.
The hotel has only been open a few months.
