Overlooked by the famous Glasgow Necropolis this is the ideal place to base yourself for a night out in Glasgow. The foods of a decent standard, the restaraunt upstairs serves 8 /10 food though it can be a little pricey compared to others locally. The staff are friendly, and although the rooms are basic they're very clean. Its a thumbs...

I stayed at the hotel for business. On checkout I was informed that they could not provide a VAT receipt as they were waiting for the number to be issued. I'm still waiting and after 2 attempts to contact them via email and their website, I still have not VAT details. Poor service.

My wife and I spent a very nice Saturday night here on a trip to Glasgow. It's an old building with a traditional bar downstairs. Great views of the cathedral and only 15 minutes walk from town centre. We had room no.4 which had just been decorated. Bathroom had new shower but looks like floor still needs done. Cooked breakfast...

Spent last night at this hotel in room 3. It was a corner room so lovely and bright. Bed linen and room was clean. The issue is that everything is old and tatty looking. This room needed an upto date bathroom and décor, the furniture is cheap and not good quality. The most positive I can is that the staff...

I would have rated this hotel as "excellent" because of the wonderful building, food and friendly staff, clean sheets and lovely towels everyday....so i don't understand why such a beautiful building should be neglected like this! rubbish outside in the beer garden (broken furniture mostly) and the twin room we booked for a few nights stay was pretty dire, bathroom...

This hotel is located just a short taxi road from the city centre and next to St Mungos Cathedral and the Necropolis. A few of us stayed here on a Saturday night. Greeted by friendly helpful staff, we arrived early so they stored our bags whilst we went off to the city. Returned late that night for a quick drink...

A real find. The place is handily appointed just off the motorway. Perfect for the centre of town. There is free parking to the rear. We stayed in the John Know Suite which was spotless, had views over the East end of the city and the four poster bed provided one of the most comfortable sleeps we have had. The...

Quirky building, 8 bedrooms (I think) with a bar downstairs. Staff were wonderful but the rooms were shabby and in dire need of a makeover. We had rooms 1 & 5. Room 5 had no hairdryer, no Lightbulb in the sidelight, no working light in the bathroom. I couldn't get the TV to work. Room 1 was marginally better in...

One night stay in Glasgow, hotel opposite the Glasgow Cathedral. There is a small car park too which is a bonus. Staff couldn't have been friendlier, location good for town centre, ok there are a few stairs to climb to the rooms...but heck it's an old building! Room was basic but fine for a nights stay, there was live music...

Our two twin rooms were shabby and depressing with paintwork coming off the bedside tables. The sash window in one of the rooms wouldn't close. The whole ambience was 'grim'. To reach our rooms we went up three flights of spiral stairs, two of which are concreted. We decided to check out immediately and explained our views to the manager....
