Arrived approx an hour before check-in but no problem booking in and was given room without the usual hanging around. Room was basic but clean, bed linen and towels were clean and changed everyday. The heating was on constantly which was good as it was cold outside. Tea and coffee replenished daily. We have been to Glasgow on previous occasions... More

We booked our overnight stay as we were at a night out in the city centre and would be too late to get last train home. It's a budget hotel and as such weren't expecting luxury. However we were expecting better than we received. The bed had the oldest lumpiest mattress imaginable. The the guy on reception had said to... More

We have stayed at this hotel a few times when visiting Glasgow as it's very central and reasonably priced. Breakfast is included in the price with a good range to choose from. Don't expect a great view, but the room is clean and staff friendly. Will definately be returning.

Let's start with the positives: Great location - you can see the train station from the door - and the staff were very helpful when I needed to print out tickets for the show I was attending, etc. The room was very reasonably priced given that it included breakfast. Overall, I felt the communal areas like the lobby and dining... More
