Booked a room for the night here as part of visiting Glasgow to see Motohead with a friend.
Reception were quick and courteous do deal with our check-in and were presented with key cards and details about the hotel, restaurant and bar times. They also arranged a taxi to take us to the gig.
The room was pleasant with extremely comfortable beds, a clean and bright bathroom and an imac for Tv/Internet usage. Unfortunately our room did not look over the Clyde but that did not cause any problems. Maybe next time.....
After the gig we stayed in the bar for a few hours. The bartender on that night was brilliant! He couldn't believe that we had been to see Motorhead and we struck-up a good conversation with him.
Sleep was uninterrupted apart from housekeeping coming into the room around 9.30am which was a bit of a disappointment.Other than that the room was quiet and I'd love to know where the pillows are from as they were SO comfortable.
Check-out was painless and then it was just a case of getting to the station to head home.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone that needs to stay in Glasgow for a night or two. The view along the river is spectacular with all the landmarks lit-up.
I'll be sure to go back!
