There isn't much to choose from in Barrhead but this is the best (and newest) of 3. Still, the breakfast is as basic as you'll ever see anywhere, coffee, cereal and toast is about it. Internet is fast (12MBPS) but my room lacked a proper ordinary desk . A small coffee table that was too low had 2 chairs, a tiny higher table had none, it just seemed a very odd arrangement. You don't get soap, it's those liquid soap dispensors instead. The one in the shower was on the wall under the shower head, an impractical location once you actually use it. When you enter your room it will be dark, and to get power turned on you insert your room card into a holder by the door--except it is dark and you'll wonder why the darn lights don't come on. All in all, it is a new place that missed a lot of opportunities by somebody simply not thinking about what makes a very nice hotel instead of just being better than the others. And in Barrhead the bar isn't set very high to start with.
