Many plus points here: friendly and welcoming Reception staff; in fact all staff very pleasant and efficient; comfortable room (with fridge); great bed and bedding; good storage space; apple pc/tv; good selection of drinks sachets and toiletries in the room; great view if you get riverside room; very handy for SECC, Armadillo and new Hydro - they're all just across the road; good bar & room service menu.
Minus point: the breakfast was poor quality - I was there for 3 nights so am well qualified to comment. Scrambled eggs - overcooked - the chef needs some training; bacon - also overcooked; haggis - had a nasty smell; potato scones - overcooked; yoghurts - cheap variety and unpleasant taste. The ambience of the room is also just not right - loud music playing (sorry but it was too loud for me at 7am and wrong type of music for that time in the morning); some clattering of cutlery as staff put cutlery into a container - diners don't want to hear this noise as they eat their breakfast.
Overall, I will definitely return, but I hope the Management take action on the points I have made about the breakfast quality and arrangements.
