“Great Budget hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Great Budget hotel .Very nice staff Clean room, 10 min walk to centre. Would be better if the air con worked to bring down the heat as room was quite warm . it mantains it at 22 degrees however the weather was very warm outside and the room would have been better a bit cooler. There is a fan in the room but didnt help much. Staff are lovely . would recommend

This premier inn is up to the usual standard of this hotel chain - it has clean, good-sized rooms and the staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel was fully booked at the time of my stay in August which meant a bit of a queue to check in. There was some noise from the road outside which is to be expected in a city centre location and it was less than in other hotels I have stayed in. The hotel is south of the river Clyde so less convenient for those travelling by train (as we were) than hotels north of the river, but it is only a short bus or underground journey (£1.20 for a singel fare) to Buchanan Street, which is adjacent to the railway stations. Or a 15-20 minute walk if your luggage is not too heavy. I will defintely be staying in Premier Inns in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the car park at the back of the hotel are quieter overnight, though there is some...

The bedroom was of the usual good standard expected in a Premier Inn - however the bar and restaurant were very overcrowded and claustrophobic. The food was below standard. Unfortunately there is nowhere nearby to eat or drink in this part of Glasgow. I would advise booking one of the central Premier Inns if possible.

Conveniently located in what was once the dreaded Gorbals, this Premier Inn is central enough that you can easily walk to a lot of the city's attractions and amenities, such as Glasgow Green, the People's Palace, the cathedral and necropolis (well worth a visit), the Gallery of Modern Art, the central shopping areas along Argyle Street, central station, and quite a few pubs and cafes. It has off-street parking (very useful).

The room was spotlessly clean, the staff friendly and helpful: all in all a great experience, recommended to anyone who's happy with a cheap decent no-frills hotel. My only quibble was that (unlike some others) I thought the breakfast overpriced at £8.50: I don't usually want to eat my own weight in bacon in the morning, and resent paying that much for a few pieces of toast and a cuppa. If you are a big eater, or travelling with kids (under-16s eat free), then the economics change a bit, and it may be worth it for you. But this wouldn't put me off staying there again, if I was in the area.

Room Tip: I imagine they're all of a muchness - and none are on the ground floor.

Everything about our stay here was excellent. The room and bathroom was spotless. Everything we needed was provided. The staff were cheerful, welcoming and efficient. Parking was easy. Short walk to all Glasgow attractions.

Room Tip: There are no ground floor rooms so security is not a problem.

Just an overnight stay but very pleased with everything - especially the price I paid. Thought it might be a little out of the way, but easily accessible by bus (from Buchanan Street Bus Station, as well as other city centre locations) or taxi (£4 from Central Station).

My family and I stayed for two nights as we were to attend a wedding. On arrival found staff friendly, cheery and courteous. No problem with car parking. Rooms were warm, welcoming and spotless. Beds were really comfortable and linen was spotless. Can only say one thing about the breakfast MARVELLOUS, great selections and well cooked. This not just my opinion but the opinion of my family and grandchildren. Would definitely stay in a Premier Inn again.
