Thank you Susan! I am thrilled to read that your parents and aunt had a great time with us, so much so they stayed twice! What a lovely review and recommendation of our property. We are, as you quite rightly stated, a stones throw from Glasgow's major bus station, located just 2 minutes walk from us. We hope that you...

Central location very close to city centre. Staff were very friendly and the room (room 1) was very clean and quiet for city centre location. Facilities good. Water pressure in shower was disappointing as there was lovely big shower heads which were a bit useless. Continental breakfast was good and very fresh. We thought it would have been better if...

Dear Guest Thank you for taking time to leave this review of our small city centre hotel. Sorry to hear about the shower pressure and also people walking past your table at breakfast. The showers are being rectified in 2016/2017 to ensure we have stronger pressure. The National Piping Centre is a busy venue and people to arrive early and...

The walk from the restaurant/reception was pleasant leading to a tasteful Scottish styled room that avoided the usual scottish stereotypes. The modern bathroom was spotless with two shower heads, after a long day in the Piping Centre next door I'd have loved to try the waterfall one but didn't want to get my hair wet!

We stayed as my son had a Piping training camp in the day and we didn't want to travel every day. I was really surprised, as the room was neat & well set up, fantastic staff, a great breakfast and just 2 mins from town. Great find!

A warm welcome and excellent brief by a very smart, attractive young lady. The room was petite but exceptionally clean and comfortable. You're surrounded by "piping" history which is an added bonus. Ideally located for the theatre or just doing a Glasgow shopping trip! The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere and the food is highly recommended. What a marvellous establishment...
