We stayed here on a Saturday night, 22nd October, when visiting the SECC for a show. We walked up from Glasgow Queen Street station, right along Sauchiehall Street, to the hotel (931 Sauchiehall Street). It took just half an hour to get to the hotel. The reception and lounge area are nicely decorated and contemporary. The lounge is large with ten confy sofas and coffee tables, plus a TV showing news. The reception staff were helpful and friendly and gave us a map showing the quickest way to the SECC.
We had two rooms booked, one twin on the first floor (for our teens) which had a side view and a shower not bath. Our room was on the third floor, front facing with a bath and shower. There was ample open hanging space for our clothes, tea and coffee facilities, a hairdryer, a safe, a vanity area with mirror and chair, a flat screen tv with a remote attached to a cable (not seen this before). Our double bed was two singles together, which made it really wide. It was comfortable too, and the linen was clean. The bathroom was clean and neat. The shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and soap was on a dispenser on a wall within the bath area. There was also a cake of soap for the sink. There was ample lighting in the room and it was controlled by switches by the bed and also by the door. Being in the city centre, there was some noise of traffic and people but this did not prevent us sleeping.
Breakfast was 7.30 to 9.30 on the Sunday morning and we were advised to come down earlier than later because most people came down later and queues were common. We arrived for breakfast at 8am and there were no queues. It was self service for everything, but a member of staff did make and bring us toast, which saved us waiting around for it to cook. There was a choice of wheatabix, musli (sp.) or cornflakes, plus yoghurts and fruits. We were served a cooked breakfast at the counter, then I got my cup of coffee. On the table was a large selection of jams and butter. The dining room was large, with comfortable seating, contemporary decor. My only gripe was the early time of the Sunday breakfast. Many hotels have it finishing much later than 9.30. However, it did mean that we were able to get a lot more done in Glasgow that day, before returning home. I would book here again (I booked through lastminute dot com), the price for both rooms was £114 B&B.
