Stayed here on Saturday 26th March , myself and my 15yr old daughter, and thanks to Trip Advisor's Upgrade Voucher which I printed out the night before, we were given a large spacious Apartment in the original Rice Mill part of the building! Thanks TA !!!
On arrival at Queen Street station, just hopped into a taxi which was approx £4.50 as I wasnt sure of my bearings. We checked in with no problems by a friendly receptionist and were able to get into our room well before the stated checkin time which was good.
The apartment itself had a lounge area with complimentary minibar stocked with goodies, flat screen tv, cd player, hairdryer, iron etc and a great wee kitchen area with all you would need to self cater, fridge , microwave etc. The outer wall where the window was, was exposed brick with mood lighting and wooden floor. Bathroom was big with a separate power shower cubicle and bath. Also a large sink area with the usual toiletries. The bedroom was also very spacious with the same brickwork at the window and a flat screen tv also . Plenty space for luggage and storage. Two comfy single beds. Only gripes about the apartment were a couple of lightbulbs out but didnt bother to get this sorted as wasnt an issue as plenty of other lighting. There was an odd ticking sound above the kitchen area every so often but with bedroom door closed, didnt hear anything. Lovley peaceful sleep!
I chose this hotel for proximity to SECC as we had tickets for McFly, and also for closeness to shops and rail station. If you go out of hotel , turn right and up some stairs you are on Argyle St and about an easy 8 min walk straight down to Central Station and shopping areas. For the SECC , turn left out of hotel down to end of road, turn right and a 15 minute stroll , straight along by the River gets you there. Easy peasy !!
The Hotel's leisure club is Waves and has a smashing pool and hot tub/steamroom/sauna which we used. Costs £1 for locker/towel hire .Great to have a dedicated swimming lane as well ! Breakfast was ample , hot and cold buffet ,fruits/ yogurts, cereals . juices etc . Only issue was I had to ask twice for tea/toast but restaurant was quite busy, but again only a minor thing for me anyway !
The hotel has a Savannah Beauty Therapy centre and we both had a Hydrotherm Back/neck/shoulder massage on the Sunday after checking out , which was pure heaven ! The staff were so pleasant and friendly, as were all the other hotel staff. The concierge kept our luggage and shopping as we went back for more retail therapy before catching a cab back to Queen street from the hotel and this time was only £3.60 !
Would definately stay here again. Thank you to all the hotel staff for making my daughters birthday treat memorable !
