  • Good location and clean hotel. The price was reasonable and staff were friendly. The room was spacious, toilets were spotless and breakfast was fine, and the coffee was better than the night before.

    The mattress on the double bed was well overdue to be replaced, food menu was very limited.

  • The location is good and the hotel is beautifully appointed within easy reach of all the West End of Glasgow has to offer. The staff are efficient and friendly/helpful enough and was reasonably well priced, the rooms are realy clean. The food is good, better than bar food.

    The corridor carpets filthy and the decor grotty, poor service. Tv chanels very limited, the policy of giving one free drink for 2 people staying for 3 nights failed to impress favourably.

  • Location just off a82 and a £6 taxi ride will get you to many better establishments. The hotel is nicely furnished, would rate well below a premier inn level and most of the staff are very pleasant and helpful. The room is clean and a fridge and microwave would be nice too.

    City centre seems a bit noisy outside early in the morning &, petrol station my first impressions were not high and the young women on reception were very busy. Bathroom had old stains on the tiles and food was poor.
