The last time I stayed at this hotel I said that other budget hotels in Glasgow should take note on how they are run. I stand by that assessment. We arrived early into Glasgow and went to drop off our bags so we could go out exploring before checking in but we were allowed to check in there and then... More

Hotel very clean and comfortable. Staff friendly but too busy and we had a long wait to check in and out. We were awoken at four am to hammering on next door which went on sporadically for half an hour. Rooms weren't quiet and heard next door moving about. Breakfast good, plenty of choice.

Very disappointed. The staff at this hotel are very friendly and helpful but are let down by other things (in my experience). I had a room on the second floor that overlooked the main road and a multi story car park so was very noisy, I also think the Underground railway contributed to the noise. The room itself was what...

I stayed here whilst in Glasgow on business and whilst the hotel did everything you expect from a hotel, it was average and did not blow me away.

When working in the area or back for a week-end break, this hotel is my first choice every time. The facilities on offer provide incredible value for money! Whether it's the staff, the food, the rooms, whatever, it's quality throughout. It's obviously well managed. Thank you.
