“Good-looking but cheap-feeling”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2011

The location of the hotel is convenient since it's within city centre. The single rooms are small but neat. Main problem about them is they're basements so you only get a small window and all the noise from the street and the reception upstairs perfectly coming through.

There's also a cheap feeling around everything. It looks like the kind of place where money was invested to make it look good and sell it but they didn't go the extra mile and actually make it friendly and useful. The ensuite bathroom is big and smart-looking, however most appliances are loose (as was the lock of the entrance door) and not well taken care of, neither you have shelves or anywhere to put your stuff.

For the same prize range or paying slightly more you can find dozens of better places in the Glasgow area, with better accomodation and better service.

A nice little hotel in an excellent location.

I have stopped here twice now, and already booked for a third. The first time almost everything that could go wrong did, but the response of the staff was excellent, which encouraged our return.

There are other comments about noise, but having stopped at several hotels, its no worse than many others, and in fact I haven't found it to be a problem at all.

The rooms are a reasonable size, comfortable and well equipped. Breakfast it ok, but like some others, not quite sure about the sausages or turkey rashers.

All in all, good, clean comfortable and reasonably priced accommodation in an excellent location, with staff who want to meet your needs.

This three star hotel is ok for an overnight stay. The basics are there with a nice power shower. Breakfast there were plenty to choose from, however cooked breakfast was over done so please review your cooking times.

The accommodations were clean and affordable, and I don't think you can get any better for the price. It is near Firewater, which made it quite loud until closing time and affected my sleep. Breakfast was worked around my early schedule, and the continental option was very good. The front desk was welcoming and nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room farther away from loud clubs. Room 19 is loud.

This was my first time staying here, I travelled solo on business. I was given a room next to door of hotel [I suggest a room further away] as can be noisy, especially Fri./Sat. people coming back late/early from socialising.The room was clean, comfortable, has wall-mounted TV, Tea / coffee making facilities. Bathroom with shower cubicle was small, but adequate. Room included breakfast, either cooked, or continental and it was also very good. Hotel staff were friendly and welcoming. Reception has an iron and table available on request.Hotel is pretty centraly located with clubs/pubs, fast food outlets, restaurants [of all kinds] within 5 minutes walk.

Room Tip: Try to opt for a room away from Hotel entrance, as can be noisy with guests arriving/departing at al...
