Very comfy bed, friendly staff, good mix of traditional and modern decor. Breakfast was amazing quality. Only slight fault was the lift was tiny. But was a great stay and would be staying there again next time i revisit the home town.

Stayed here for one night as I was off to see Michael Ball & Alfie Boe at the Clyde auditorium which is only 9 mins away in a taxi or a 20min walk. The rooms are lovely, clean and the beds are comfy. Bonus points in my eyes the complimentary Tunnocks Teacakes in the rooms next to the tea and... More

The hotel room was modern and clean, just very warm even with window open. We were a group of 4 attending a tribute night. On arrival we went to the bar which initially was pleasant, we ordered handmade chips as a snack - they were lovely. The bar was then full of football fans and kids which the hotel seem... More

My mum & I stayed here when we were attending a concert in the city centre. Parking was free and a bus stop directly across from the hotel meant cheap easy access into the city centre.

Formerly the Swallow hotel, this hotel is now much more upmarket and very tastefully refurbished. We often used it before and although it was "tired" it had a good feel to it. Now it is stunning and still has lovely friendly staff. I would recommend it to anyone.

The room was very modern, and very clean. Each room had tea cakes which we love in each room. Also I highly recommend the potato scone nachos which we miss. The staff were helpful and welcoming. However, the location is far from the subway, but near the bus stops and Bellahouston Park. Also the outside of the hotel is very... More

Checked into hotel. Staff lovely. Aesthetically attractive reception and public areas. Room had several issues which could have easily been avoided. Radiator not working. Towel rail falling off wall. Longstanding condensation patch on shower cubicle ceiling. Surely this info should be relayed from housekeeping staff to engineer's dept at regular meetings. Must be demotivating for reception staff to hear these... More
