Had high hopes after reading the reviews in here, but the best things I can say about this hotel is that the location is excellent and that they answer you quick by e-mail when booking...
The rooms are quite small, we could not even get our luggage past the bed without lifting it over. The other thing we disliked was the sliding doors to the bathroom. Not much privacy, so one should really be comfortable with eachother or be deaf.
My girlfriend have asthma, and we let them know up front. The room was nice and clean when we checked in, and he window was open as requested. However, we stayed for almost two weeks, and no vacuuming or removal of dust was done after check in. THere were chunks of dust laying openly on the floor. So we took action ourselves and removed it.
What was our main concern with this hotel was the fact that the door wouldn't smack by itself. No problem at all, hadn't the cleaning personel left the door open. When we returned to our room one day the door was not locked. We told the personell in reception, and were told the problem was addressed, and that the cleaning personell was being told to close the door properly. The next night we stayed at Isle of Bute, only to return to Grasshoppers and our door being left open AGAIN. That is totally unacceptable! No compansation was offered.
The fire alarm set off twice when we stayed here, once during the night. We are glad the the hotel take fire risks serious, so this is no critisism of Grasshoppers. However, we found the information during these incidents missing. We were only told to return to our room by other guests. They should have better routines regarding this.
We did not try the breakfast nor the complimentary cupcakes in the hallways, but appreciated the free bottled water.
The bottled water and excellent location does not weigh up for the door being left open twice.
We always go to Glasgow two weeks every summer, but next summer we will stay somewhere else I'm afraid.
