I think it has been the worst experience I had in an accomodation on the last months. I went to Glasgow with 2 friends and we get a 4 people room. The room was old but it wasn't ugly at all. However it was almost imposible to sleep there. We arrive at 1am at night, the temperature was around 5ºC,...

Dear oh dear what can I say apart from the fact that it is, by far, the worst hotel of my experience. My room , at £70, was in the basement with no heating - the radiator didn't work and the dimpled oil heater was faulty. The room was dirty and the furniture had to be seen to be believed...

A friend and I stayed here for 2 nights on a fleeting trip to Glasgow. Good location, not far from the centre. We had a room on the top floor. No lift but luckily in the last 30 years we have learnt how to negotiate stairs so was not a problem :) The room was compact and basic but clean....

This must be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was extremely tiny, murky, dingy, outdated, (a double and a single bed witht only one mug no coffee/tea facilities), and altogether just a shambles. The shower was virtually falling to pieces, and looked so unhygienic that my wife and I decided to have a sink bath, even...

we stayed here for 1 night but would not return. on arrival we were pleased to hear that we had been upgraded to a triple room, unfortunately the room we were in had no hot water for the duration of our stay. we did point this out to the chap on reception and he said he would "hit the boost"...

I stayed here last week for one night. As others have said the guy who checked me in was absolutely lovely, definitely an asset to the guesthouse. My room was at the top of the hotel but as I didn't have much baggage this wasn't an issue. If you struggle with mobility this wouldn't be ideal. Room was clean and...

Well following our visit to the willow guest house I thought I'd leave a review.... To start id like to give the staff a 10/10 if they were trying to give us a Halloween experience as it felt like we were on the set of scary movie...when we arrived we were greeted by a semi pleasant man who looked as...

Walking in, the place looked somewhat decent but then when climbing up the hundred stairs to our room we were welcome to the smallest room with the most uncomfortable beds with rooms that don't even have a proper lock on them. Everything was old and worn out. The breakfast was AWFUL but the breakfast staff were extremely entertaining and friendly....

Take notice of the reviews folks! We didn't. Hard to believe you can be charged good hard earned money to stay here?? So unbelievably run down and tired and in need a good renovation. Even the little garden out front is like waste ground. Old plant troughs full of fag butts and rainwater outside front door! Eeeeeyuk!!! Very basic. Location...
