“Very Posh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2008

I stayed at the hotel with my boyfriend for a work function which was being held in the hotel.

Overall the hotel was very impressive, very clean and modern. The bedrooms were lovely and a good size. Complimentary Dressing Gowns and slippers added to our experience in the hotel. The only downside was the bathroom sink took awhile to drain away but apart from that everything other element of the room was fantastic.

I will definately be staying at the hotel again, hopefully not in the too distant future

I stayed here for one night in November and its a beautiful hotel and I was amazed at the service and quality. Reception staff are friendly and make you feel valued (even looking rough after a long flight). The rooms are huge and well decorated, very modern and with alot of gadgets. Bathroom nice and you get nice handmade toilettries for your stay. Ordered room service and the food was delivered within 30 minutes and was just beautiful (and reasonably priced for room service). Bar was busy but excellent service and all staff were friendly. Internet Access available at the business area for guests. Did not use the pool so can not comment on that. Breakfast was a wee bit busy and had to queue for a while, was not offered tea / coffee or toast but overall breakfast buffet was well presented and was nice. Overall if I was to stay in Glasgow Centre again I would pick this hotel as out beats its other 5 stars hotels in the city by a mile. And its 2 mins away from Central Station, 30 mins walk to secc and 5 mins to shop.

Central location literally in the centre of the City, and booked at a great price via expedia.

We were on the second floor, and potential noise from traffic was a concern before we got to the room, but we didn't hear a peep!

Lively bar area, modern hotel. Food at breakfast was continental at £11, or cooked for £16. Not too bad I guess... Drinks were typical city centre prices.

Room was spacious, and came with all the typical amenities you would expect - coffee/tea making, iron/board and trouser press. Hair dryer, safe, mini-bar, dressing gowns. TV had about 10 channels. WiFi was free which was nice. Bed was big and comfortable.

I didn't use the pool / gym, but to say the use of it was built into the price of the stay (which is becoming increasingly rare these days) I have to admit there were no complaints. Would definitely stay there again. Even though it is your typical functional, large, city centre chain hotel, it was quiet.

I stayed in a queen-bed room. Room itself is spacious and comfortable. The bed is too soft for me though, as I have a slight back problem. There are a large stain of wine on the carpet and the housekeeping staff seemed not to be bothered with it. The supplements in the room e.g. coffees, tea bags are of good quality. TV with digital channels is a bonus as well.

What impressed me most is the friend service by the reception staff, in particular I have to mention a guy named Hamit. He helped us rent the car from enterprise, and show us the interesting places to visit/
eat too. Very helpful and responsible! I was about to give him some tips when I came back from business trip but unfortunately he was not on duty that day. The hotel lobby also offers a desktop for guests to use internet free of charge, which is good as I did not bring my laptop with me.

The breakfast costs 15 pounds per person. It is just not worth the price, in my opinion. The choices are rather limited, and quality is so so. Believe me, I have stayed in many 3-5 star hotels. My experience told me that this is not a good offer.

The best hotel i have stayed in can't fault anything with this hotel.
Rooms are big and bed is huge.
Breakfast is great you can have anything and as much as you like.
Only 1 thing i would say is that the drinks in the bar are expensive.
The hotel is in a great area and a car park just round the corner
If you can afford to stay here go for it.

we stayed here for just one night in March. The location could not be more convenient, right next to the main rail station and just a few minutes walk from Buchanan Street, the main city centre shopping street. The hotel itself is extremely well appointed, very modern. Our room, a standard double, had marble counter tops in the bathroom with heated floor tiles and an amazing shower (great water pressure!). The bed was huge (an american king size) and very comfortable and despite freezing weather outside it was warm and toasty inside when we arrived and the ac was easy to control too. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The staff were extremely helpful too. In the morning before we checked out we made several trips out from the hotel to nearby locations, the rain was heavy and the hotel provided large umbrellas for guests who needed to venture out in it. The hotel had two restaurants, neither of which we tried but at least one was very reasonably priced. We did use the bar in the stylish atrium/lobby, they had a nice range of single malts (of course) and friendly bar staff. All this for considerably less than I would expect t have paid for a major city centre and way less than in the US (even with the horrendous exchange rates!). Fabulous place, would stay here again without hesitation.
