stayed Saturday night . room clean and comfortable. Negative point looked onto railway station noisy. . Tempus restaurant food average. Champagne bar £8.50 for cocktails a bit excessive.

Our first impressions were not good when we checked in and the receptionist had no record of the free bottle of wine we were promised when we booked. He wouldn't believe me until I showed him my booking. When we first saw our room we were underwhelmed to say the least. It WAS one of their standard doubles but I still expected it to be nice, being that it's supposed to be a 4* hotel, but it was quite basic, no better than a budget hotel really. It was lacking in what I would consider basic amenities i.e a mini fridge, bottled water, shower caps etc and was very small. We couldn't get the heating on either, and there were hardly any channels on the tv. I felt our weekend would be ruined if we stayed there so I went down to reception and paid extra for an upgrade to an executive room instead (not such a bargain after all!) but apart from being bigger (bigger bed, bigger room, bigger bathroom and bath) was not much better. They DID have bathrobes and slippers but still no fridge or any luxury items. Very disappointing. Also, everything had a 'small additional charge'. We had forgotten our toothbrushes and read that they were available from housekeeping, but we would have to pay for them. We went to a chemist instead. They even took our soap and didn't replace it, and the tea tray was not replenished. We had intended to eat at the restaurant and asked the receptionist to book a table. He told us we had to ring down ourselves from our room- great, thanks for your help! Even checking out was a nightmare, despite it saying on our keycard envelopes that we could sign them and pop our keys in an Express checkout box, the concierge told us we couldn't and we had to wait in an enormous queue of people instead. Luckily our train wasn't for another hour or we might have missed it! All in all, I would definitely not stay here again, If you just want somewhere to lay your head it might be ok for you if you get a really good deal, but it's not for us. Shame really, it looked so good on the internet.

Ideally located and, after it's complete refurbishment, is a very welcome change from the modern, soul-less type of hotel that is all too prevalent nowadays. This hotel reflects it's name.

Hotel right in the station so not far to carry luggage. Typical grand victorian type of hotel built for the age of steam with big rooms and huge corridors and the most lovely staircase with an enormous chandelier. We had an executive room which was beautiful with a super kingsized bed with large headboard and sprung mattress. Bathroom was spotlessly clean with the usual range of products. Bathrobes were provided. Breakfast was good and worth the £10 extra although there were plenty of alternative places just outside and in the station itself if you wanted something cheaper. Shops, bars, restaurants right outside hotel with plenty of choice for everyone. Hotel had a huge champagne bar which was buzzing on a Friday night but quite expensive. Would definitley go back to this hotel.

Perfect location for doing anything if you want to be in the centre of Glasgow, taxi rank directly outside if you need to go further afield. Food really good in the restaurant but not generous portions so not too good if you're hungry and have a good appetite.

Great location. Staff on first visit were exceptional and allowed me to check in early. Thank you! Second visit coincided with a Christmas party at the hotel. So, it was a bit noisy. Note to hotelier: Get some background noise generators for the rooms.

The hotel's location does not get any better. It is located within the Central Station is is just metres from the main shopping and tourist areas. The room was great and a good size. All the staff were very friendly and informative. I would stay there again anyday!

Over all very plesant. Very central location which lead to traffic noise from early morning. Room (241) very warm even stuffy could not open windows for any lenght of time due to traffic noise. Heating could not be regulated within room. We stayed at Halloween and the weather was unseasonally mild. On the plus side the room was very clean and a good size. If you like a very warm room you will enjoy it. Champange bar very pleasant, you never know who you might see there!!

You cannot beat the location of this hotel, you can walk everywhere to the shops, the pub and it's linked to the train station. I have stayed in this hotel numerous times and will continue to return.

Nice Family Room, can't get any bigger. Noisy with train announcements (perhaps the room being towards central station). No air circulation / heating controls. :-(

Times have changed. June was perfect - October was not. Gone are the shortbread cookies/biscuits in the room. Gone are the amazing bath amenities. Look for only shampoo, creme rinse, and bath gel. Gone are face cloths. Book the wine with the room and it is no longer delivered. Now you have to enjoy dinner first at their restaurant to receive it. The beds are very hard so if you like a firm bed this place is for you. It is a beautiful hotel with soaring ceilings, the staff is the best, and the location can not be beat. I would prefer a larger bath, cooler room (some rooms have the heat on and it can not be turned off right now - we were given fans), i miss those fabulous shortbread cookies, and need a much softer bed. I love this hotel; I was so disappointed this last trip.

fabulous place. Quite a bit more expensive than it used to be (I stayed there two years ago, for less than half the price), but I suppose that's because it's been all re-done. Great rooms: lots of space, great bathrooms, comfy beds. Only thing was that the doors close quite forcefully, so there were a good number of banging doors throughout the night. Also the noise from the fans (outside) was constant, but fairly "white-noise-ish" so not too bad. I'd stay here again.

I originally chose this hotel on a value-for-money basis. It turned out to be exceptionally good value - a beautifully refurbished historic building, with well-equipped, spacious rooms, excellent service, and fantastic food and drink. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Glasgow. Very central and convenient, it's a hotel of real character. I slept well, and could not have been more comfortable. And who could resist staying at a hotel whose past guests have included Roy Rogers and Trigger?
