“Centrally located Budget Hotel”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

This centrally located Hotel close to George Square and 10 minute walk into Town and Central Station. We have stayed here on two seperate occasions. This Premier Inn has adopted an automatic check-in system which I personally find very unwelcoming and unfriendly, in fact no member of staff even spoke to us on our arrival, very odd ! On a previous stay we were allocated rooms on the front and found it extremely noisy so at the time of booking this time I made a request to be placed at the rear of the Hotel but unfortunately our request must have fallen of deaf ears as we were given one room was at the front and one at the back. The Room Service in one was frankly poor i.e. bins not emptied, Bath towels were replaced by only one even though it was clear the room had two occupants. Mid-afternoon one day, we returned to find one room had not been made up, a number of other room doors on the same floor had been wedged open leaving our belongings on display whilst removal men were replacing the beds. We had to then wait some time before our room was accessible again. Why this process was being done whilst we were mid-stay is beyond me ?

Room Tip: I'd like to say, request a Room at the back of the Hotel at time of Booking as Street noise can...

2 mins up from st georges square this premier inn is well positioned for a stay in the city especially if you're shopping or working.

Hotel is a typical premier inn - comfy bed bog standard rooms - no surprises.

Breakfast satisfying too.

They have meeting rooms to hire too

The only thing I disliked was that bar and restaurant toilet is miles away from
The actual rooms - down stairs too - could do with a closer loo

It was our third or fourth stay in this hotel. As always - check in was very quick, and staff really helpful. Rooms are clean and fresh. Beds and linens are really nice, very cosy. I would only wish for more light - but most hotels tend to have not enough lighting.
Taking that we paid only 29 Pounds (around $50) a night (VAT included) booking directly on hotel's web site - i find it more than satisfactory. I've seen much worse in hotels twice that price. A decent budget option in the center of Glasgow.
Surely an expensive hotel would have a nicer feel - but we wanted a budget hotel, and for what it costs - it is more than adequate. We will be back.

Room Tip: you can ask for "back side" for a nice view at an old church, and really quiet surrounding...

it´s a good option to be near everything, shopping, transportation, architecture, university. It´s clean, quiet, and has good food and whisky and beer. The webpage is the only way to booking, it can be a headache. Be careful when filling all the information.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

I had to cancel my booking and provided sufficient notice for cancellation and full refund, according to Premier Inn terms; the cancellation was confirmed and 6 months later I am still spending a considerable amount of time chasing Premier Inn for the refund. Dreadful customer service and I will not be making any further bookings with Premier Inn.

Left to look after ourselves though my wife and I are partly disabled. Bathroom did not have the normal facilities such as - a bar of soap or a small bottle of shampoo. The service in the dining room was excellent at breakfast and dinner. The room servicing was appalling - had to call for a chambermaid to make up the room as four o'clock in the afternoon.

i stayed at the hotel for 1 night last week. The check in was speedy and efficient. The room itself was large, clean and very comfortable. As you would expect from Premier Inns, the room was great value for money and the hotel was within easy walking distance of the main shppoing area and trendy Merchant city area of Glasgow. I would have no reservations about staying there on my next trip to the city.
