A wee gem, hidden away, but five minutes from city centre. From the minute we arrived, to sitting down to greakfast, I have paid a lot more for a lot less! Blown away with all aspects! Alan, the receptionist, was just brilliant! The hotel itself, was spotless, very spacious room with all amenities and big fluffy towels!!! Freshly cooked breakfast...

After reading all the wonderful reviews we booked to stay two separate nights in this hotel. On arrival we had to ring the bell for entry - we were received by a very unfriendly receptionist! Not one smile - no chat! On returning from our concert the entrance was unlit and it was difficult to find the card slot. Very...

The Acorn was a wonderful find, not far from the centre but far enough not to be crowded. The welcome from Roz on reception was lovely, she coldn't do enough for us over the weekend and was always there with a welcome and a goodbye. The room was quite and cozy with a great shower. There is no lift but...

Friendly local hotel; cheap and convenient parking; bar below and good places to eat nearby. Clean and well decorated rooms. There is not a lift and some rooms on second floor - so be prepared! Overall, a wonderful place that I will be coming back to.

We came to Glasgow for a wedding and we stayed at the charming Acorn Hotel. From the minute we arrived the lovely receptionist was a delight to deal with. A request for an iron and board was met promptly and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast just now was freshly cooked to order and was well worth the money. The...

We were given a really warm welcome by Roz on reception who took the time to ask our plans and suggest some places we could visit. It was really appreciated. We were given two rooms next door to each on the first floor which was just perfect. Cozy, clean with modern bathrooms we couldn't have asked for much more. Breakfast...

Really liked this hotel. I normally book 'chains' but went outside my comfort zone and I'm so pleased I did. Stayed for 3 nights for a concert visit / mini break in October 2016. Good location, parking was reasonably easy on street and you could get parking vouchers from the hotel. Decor was good in the rooms and as a...
