Trip with friends

The staff were friendly and helpful. The room itself was nice, just a few bits and bobs that could be done up - window was loose so rattled a lot, soap dish in bathroom would be good and paint job was bit tatty. It was good for the money we paid. The noise from the room next to us was horrendous and kept us awake from 4am-6am but that was a drunken group. The second night we had a sound sleep. The location was brilliant, couldn't fault it. Overall our stay was good and worth the money we paid.

A good night stay in Glasgow

The hotel is a stones throw from the train station, very close to George and Market Exchange Squares and Buchanon Street. I recommend it due to location alone. The breakfast is excellent! The bar is nice also.

Close but no comfort

+ close to center + adequate breakfast - very noisy especially at night - window didn't close - borderline bathroom but clean Hotel has seen it's best days. If you don't expect too much luxury, it's ok.

Convenient for transport links

Room & bathroom were spacious but paintwork was dirty and doors needed fingermarks wiped off. Beds comfy and clean but the entrance and foyer were grubby and tired looking. Breakfast was plentiful but poor quality. Would be fine for a one night stay (which ours was) but wouldn't stay again.

Excellent location!

Very central and clean hotel, the breakfast is of a good standard and there are lots of items to choose from, our room was clean although a bit dated and just needs a bit of touching up and fixing here and there. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again excellent value for money.
