“Comfortable hotel accomodation with fantastic staff!”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

We stayed here for 5 nights, and used the hotels ideal location to our advantage – close enough to walk to the city centre or for access to the main roads / motorway, allowing us to explore the surrounding area. We also found the availability of a complimentary car park fantastic & extremely beneficial.

The hotel accommodation was clean, and the room very comfortable. The week we were there it was quite warm and humid, particularly at night, so the lack of air conditioning unfortunately is our only disadvantage of this hotel. A fan had been left in the room however which definitely helped!

A special mention must go to the staff of this hotel – everyone we met was friendly and helpful, but in particular two members of staff; Lorraine and Ross were excellent, from making check in a quick and easy experience to helping us out with passing a rainy day in Glasgow after we had checked out. They are both a true asset to the hotel.

Breakfast each morning was lovely – the buffet kept well stocked of a wide variety of food to suit all tastes, and was a great start to the day. This was our first time staying in a Premier Inn, and we will definitely use them again.

Located about a 20 minute walk from city center and only stayed at this Inn because George Street was booked up. Quick check in and out. Wasn't that happy with room but I suppose it could have been worse - small, dark, clean apart from the tv remote which looked dirty and the bathroom bin hadn't been emptied. No alarm clock on TV which is usually useful. Stayed two nights, the first of which we tried to get an early night (9pm) when extremely loud music started up. It sounded like it could be coming from the room next door so we phoned reception and they told us they were having a party and the music would stop at midnight! Totally unacceptable.

Definitely wouldn't recommend this Premier Inn or stay here again.

I stayed here for one night in a family room. The hotel is modern, comfortable and really good value for money for a budget hotel.

Having stayed in a Premier Inn before, that provided excellent service I didn't look at any other options for a weekend in Glasgow to meet up with some friends. I knew that I wanted to stay in another Premier Inn.

This was no different to the other Premier Inn, except for the staff. They were extremely friendly, helpful, and nothing was too much bother. The reception area, and dinning area were all very light airy and modern. The room was good... although the lack of cooling on a hot weekend did make it not quite as enjoyable as one would have hoped. The previous Premier Inn had this, and it made all the difference!

However, that said, I'd stay again. Thank you to everyone who made our stay so enjoyable!

With free parking and only 5 minute walk to underground station, this was perfect base for city sight-seeing. 5 min walk to O2 concert venue. Surprisingly quiet corridors and not too much noise from busy road. Helpful staff. No complaints. Premier consistently delivers what it says on tin.

First of all i have to say that premier inn has to be one of the best budget chains around and for familys they offer a clean comfortable environment to base your break around and i will carry on using them but just not this one. the location is close to the city centre with the tube just up the street but i would not advise walking in the evening as we saw many characters you would avoid at all costs. The hotel itself has a small bar and restaurant area and i would advise eating out as although the food was pleasent it was no better that pub grub that could be had for cheaper in glasgow city centre,My main reason for not returning here has to be the rooms they are a bit tired and very hot and you have two choices keep the window closed and not sleep because of the heat or open them and not sleep because of the road noise and the people outside the main door talking, premier inn prides itself on a good night guarentee of your money back but when i spoke to recption their excuse for not refunding my money was "we dont have air con".

Room Tip: get a room at the rear of the building.

This is the second year we have spent 5 nights in this Hotel and again could find no fault with it. Staff are very courteous, rooms have everything you need, and the Hotel clean and Tidy.
Would certainly recommend the breakfast :-)
