Lovely hotel. Perfect location, about 15 min walk to the city centre, 10 min walk to the Galvanizers (GW3), 5 min walk to the museum and park. Plenty of places to eat, I highly recommend the Grove Fish and Chip place, delicious fish and chips, we even tried the deep fried Mars bar which was surprisingly nice. Our room was big enough for the 4 of us, a little tired but very clean and has everything you need (even a fridge which came in very handy). Big shout out to Liz who was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, always put a smile on our face. I will definitely stay here again.

Highly recommend this property. Very very comfortable amd clean. The family room we had was absolutely huge. Joe ( I think ) on front desk was an absolute pleasure to speak to and a credit to the company. We booked room only so cannot comment on any food aspect.

I was just looking for somewhere for a short stay over whilst visiting my son in Patrick and taking in a Warriors game at Scotstoun. From booking online to checking out all very straightforward. Joe on Reception was friendly and helpful. Good selection at breakfast. Perfect for me.

1. Excellent pre-arrival communications; all questions answered and requests fulfilled. Easy and quick check-in and check-out. 2. Location: easy to get from/to Glasgow International airport (slow but direct bus 77 stops there); nice and quiet neighbourhood with lots of eateries around, lovely park, easy walks to Glasgow Uni and Kelvingrove Art museum through the park. 3. Room: small but functional; individual control of heating; comfortable bed; excellent strong shower; lovely hot chocolate and good choice of tea bags. Our room was at the back of the building and was absolutely quiet. 4. Superb service! Nothing was a problem for managers and we met both Joe and Liz. Information about area, extra towels, ... - they know Glasgow very well and help you willingly and with a smile. Thank you!

Comfortable hotel within a ten minute walk to the Kelvingrove Museum. The staff was enormously helpful (thank you Liz!) and we enjoyed our time there. The room was spacious and comfortable, and very clean! My only complaint was that the shower was tiny, but the water was very hot and plentiful. Liz graciously kept our bags for us while we went to visit the museum. Our room looked out over an inner courtyard garden, and I enjoyed the view. There were outlets and USB plugs on both sides of the bed, which made charging our devices easy. I would certainly stay here again!

The room was comfortable, in good order and nicely clean and tidy. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast choices were good and the cooked breakfast was tasty and cooked to order. There are plenty of shops and cafés nearby and it's within walking distance of Kelvingrove park.

We stayed here as we got tickets for a show at Glasgow Armadillo and so glad we did. Hotel is lovely and in an ideal location. Room was spotless and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Bed was so comfy and room was quiet had a great night sleep. The radiator in room has a digital thermostat and easy to use We never booked breakfast but wish we had looked and smelled delicious as we were booking out. Joe on the front desk was very welcoming and friendly. Would definitely 💯 book again 😁
