The rooms were relatively small in this hotel and ours had a couple little glitches, but the very comfortable bed, excellent shower, generous and varied breakfast selection and especially the friendly and helpful front desk staff made this place a real pleasure.

excellent hotel, friendly staff, good breakfast and clean rooms. Cant argue for the price. As usual on arrival the staff are friendly, the rooms are always clean, quite small but again for the price you pay in central Glasgow you cant have any arguments.

Good Morning,

Thank you for leaving a question about the hotel and the arrangements for car parking. Unfortunately the hotel does not have its own car park but we do have a discounted agreement with the local NCP Car Park on King Street which is just a short distance diagonally opposite the hotel. Discounted vouchers are available from reception and overnight vouchers valid from 5pm-10am are charged at £5.00 and 24 hour vouchers are charged at £9.95. This car park is open air and accessible 24 hours with no height restrictions. You can come and go as you please at the car park as long as you continue to display the hotel voucher on the dash board at all times. If you are looking for a more secure option we also have a discount agreement with the Q Park on Fox Street which is situated a few minutes’ walk behind the hotel. This is an undercover car park which is fully secure. Vouchers again are available from reception and charged at £7.00 for 24 hours. This car park does have a height restriction and once you are in you are unable to take your car in and out without paying additional costs. If you require flexible parking then King Street would be the better option.

If you require any further information then please do not hesitate to contact us again and we would be only too happy to assist you.

Best Regards

Good Morning,

You can pick up an airport taxi as soon as you exit the main terminal building at Glasgow Airport. The journey is approx 7 miles to the hotel and the cost of this is in the region of £22.

Alternatively you can catch the airport shuttle bus that brings you direct to the city. The cost of this is £6 per person for one journey. The bus will drop you off at George Square which is a five minute walk from the hotel. Buses run 24 hours per day to and from the city.

Best Regards
