Perfect for Us

We spent 7 nights in our favourite hotel in Glasgow. We've stayed there on 4 of our trips to Europe. Our latest trip was Sept. 2014. We are familiar with this end of the city which is accessible by train and bus to downtown. Most of our remaining friends and relatives live in this area so it's a perfect location for us. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet every day especially the porridge. We really like the Italian restaurant just beside it and have eaten there frequently. All the staff have always seemed well trained and most were extremely helpful and solved any problem you had. We visited Friends and relatives and took them for drives with us to Loch Lomond and Paisley. We also went to The Rest and Be Thankful above Arrochar We ate in one of my favourite restaurants there The Village Inn. I had the best sticky toffee Pudding in Scotland there. The hotel has been kept up to standard with modern and clean looking rooms. We will stay there again on our net trip to Scotland probably a year from now.l

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Try the Italian restaurant beside the hotel if you want to treat yourself to a first class dining experience. Also a short walk through the grounds of the hospital behind the hotel will take you to the train station which will quickly take you into downtown Glasgow.

Wonderful 11 day stay

Having experienced other hotels on a 12 day bus trip with Trafalgar tours just before our stay and 4 days after this in another hotel for 4 days we had 9 other hotels to compare the Pond to. We also stayed in 6 B&Bs. Comparing all these accommodations only the Blu Radisson in Glasgow beat out the Pond Hotel.

Value on a budget

Stayed for a week while moving into a flat in the west end. + price, free wifi, very comfortable bed, close to rail and bus network, M&S express next door, free parking, quite area (expect Saturday night/when there is a function on in the hotel) - distance from Bynes st and the city centre if you are planning on walking and if you are in a room over their function area expect no sleep. I wouldn't stay again on a Saturday, but would be happy to any other night.

Excellent location and value, great staff

After 30 hour journey, staff were able to check me in a couple of hours early and were friendly. The location is terrific, loads of car parking and bus stop and taxi rank nearby. Breakfast was hot and plentiful. Shower had best water pressure ever. Marks and Spencer Simply Food store in adjacent BP Garage very handy. Second visit and won't be the last if visiting Glasgow.

Will be back

A wonderful stay, staff friendly and helpful, roof comfortable & breakfast was great. The only down side was the tea at breakfast wasn't great but that is just a minor quibble.

Oh Dear!!

The room let this hotel down - we had the lift shaft on one side and the extractor fan from the kitchen on the other. Noisy wedding guests throughout the night contributed to our sleepless night. Breakfast was good.
