“Glasgows secret gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

We have just returned from a 1 night stay we booked through itson and will definitely be staying again. I couldn't recommend this place more!
We visit Glasgow often and have never noticed this hotel before......what a hidden gem!

Spotlessly clean, huge power showers, white fluffy fresh bath towels, pure white crisp fresh cotton bedding, feather quilts, great choice of lighting in room, hairdryer, hair straighteners, power adapters, reading glasses, wifi connection in all rooms, sky HD (movies, sports etc) huge widescreen t.v.
Our room had a view of the station glass roof that glowed with the assortment of colours, although it is above the station we heard NO noise. I am a very light sleeper but slept like a baby while here. The breakfast had so many items to chose from including different types of freshly baked bread. The kitchen staff/waitresses always made you aware of what was on offer and assisted you with any choices, they are so friendly and had a little chat with all diners.

The staff are absolutley fantastic,Cathleen was a perfect host so bubbly and a pleasure to meet and the kitchen staff VERY attentive,they made sure EVERY guest was treated like royalty! we were given a great tour on arrival with fresh cakes, tea and fresh coffee, milk and choice of still and fizzy water in rooms along with MORE chocolate!........ All items in shower room & toilet are Arran Aromatics. The attention to detail in this hotel is 100%
I have recommended this to so many people since our return and having stayed in Glasgow many times a year I now wouldn't stay anywhere else....... What a find!!

I would like to congratulate the owners/staff for having such a well run establishment and wish them all the very best for the future........this is what ALL Scottish hotels should be like!

This hotel next to Central Station (entrance at Caledonia Chambers) is an absolute delight; 5 stars for decor, ambience and attention to detail. The staff in this family run hotel were genuinely lovely people; very welcoming, we were served a delicious hot mince pie on arrival, delicious! We had a brilliant breakfast with a wonderful range of top quality food items. Beautiful bedrooms (we got to have a sneak peak inside other rooms) In room; superb, comfortable beds; fresh ground coffee; refillable from reception, fresh milk supplied, Sky HD (free) and free Wi-fi. The attention to detail in this hotel is second to none, which is obviously down to the pride the family take in the running of their hotel; and well deserved pride! This hotel puts 5* hotels and other so-called 'boutique' hotels to shame!
We will definitely return when in Glasgow again; we got an amazing deal with Itison, but I would not hesitate to pay full price to return again, well worth it! Thank-you Grasshoppers.

It is very rare that I bother to write a review about a hotel but I have made a special effort to write about the Grasshoppers. It was my second stay at the hotel and I must say that on each occasion, my colleagues and I have been delighted with the standard of accommodation, the breakfast (muesli, yoghurt, eggs, bacon, sausages etc) and the warm Scottish hospitality we received. The hotel is on the 6th floor but is a haven from the hustle and bustle of the busy street outside. The bedrooms are clean, modern and the sky TV is a bonus. The beds are very comfortable with luxurious sheets and down duvets.The rate we paid (£85) a night was a bargain particularly for a Londoner used to paying through the roof for sub standard postage stamp accommodation. The owner of the Grasshoppers hotel Barry was there for both of our stays and is a fabulous host. On one evening, when my colleague and I were having dinner in the Kitchen - he engaged the whole room in conversation...when does that happen?! Before we arrived, we were asked if we wanted to sample their new dinner menu and were not disappointed! If you don't want to eat out, I would thoroughly recommend you sample Margot's hearty Scottish fare. Margot doesn't cook on Sundays but she came in especially to cook for my 5 colleagues - 3 of whom were Saudi Arabians. She even prepared an Arabian lentil soup - what service! Don't bother with the chains - stay here for warm, personalised service in the heart of the city.

Stayed here on a Saturday night. Room comfortable and clean, modern large bathroom with nice toiletries. Had to sleep with window open as very hot - but even with window open we were not troubled with noise. Friendly and attentive staff. Will stay again.

Had a great visit to Grasshoppers Hotel today - rooms are just gorgeous (very like a very cool London hotel I also like!). Great service, love the relaxed suppers and inviting atmosphere.

Room Tip: all different - ask for a station view - amazing!

We stayed here whilst in town for a recent Xmas shopping trip. Great central location, rooms very clean and staff very friendly.
The breakfast was tasty, a good selection of cereals, cooked breakfast, etc.
The only small issue was the heat of the room during the night. Even with the radiator in our room turned right down it was still REALLY warm.
Free Wi-fi, free Sky HD and a couple of tasty treats in the room.

We bought the itison voucher offering b&b for £45 per room and thought what do we have to lose. What we had to lose had we not bought it was finding this little gem of a place!!

We arrived just after check in and our room wasn't quite ready. The hotel was busy the previous evening and reception apologised that it would be 5 mins. This wasn't a problem however instead of waiting the receptionist decided to give us another room. We were in Room 605 on the rear of the hotel over the train station. Great view and very quiet.

We knew from reading the reviews that the room wouldn't be huge however I can completely guarantee it is adequate for a couple of night stay. If Ikea did hotels....it would look like Grasshoppers.

The room was spotless clean and spot on for our requirements. Comfy bed, great shower, sky hd tv package with all movies and sports, arran aromatics toiletries, complimentary water and smarties. But more importantly....ground coffee and a cafetiere in your room....lots of very nice touches and attention to detail.

I know someone has commented about no storage space however storing my case under the bedside cabinet was more than adequate and didn't get in the way.

We were in a rush on exit therefore we did rush breakfast however I wish we had time to be more leisurely over it. 'The kitchen' is a nice setting and what we did have was gorgeous.

To sum up, great location, great room, great breakfast and great customer service. What more can you ask for? I would have no doubts in recommending Grasshoppers....so much so we have rebooked for Hogmanay this year. Can't wait to stay again in the hotel :-)

Room Tip: ask for a room over the station at the back for a quiet night. although on the 6th floor can't i...
