              Getting there.

              Glasgow Airport is located within eight miles away from the city center and demands about 20 minutes driving to reach the city center.

              By car from Glasgow Airport take the M8 motorway heading for Glasgow city center. Then take the Clyde Tunnel junction and follow the signs for Anniesland and at Anniesland Cross turn right on to Great Western Road following the signs for City Centre. The hotel is a short car drive along this road and it is located on your right hand side.

              By train to the city center you can take the Paisley Gilmour Street located a mile away from the terminal and easily accessible by bus services 66 and 300. There are eight regular trains from Paisley Gilmour Street to Glasgow Central running hourly and on Sundays – five per hour.

              By taxi you can reach the hotel 24 hours a day and prices for long journeys are negotiated with the taxi driver ranging from £20.00 - £22.00 from Glasgow Airport to Glasgow City Center.

              Glasgow Shuttle offers 24-hour links to Glasgow's two main rail stations – Central and Queen Street and the main bus terminus - Buchanan Bus Station at price £4.50 per person. The transfer will take you about 25 minutes.

              From Edinburgh Airport, take the M8 west bound and at Junction 17 take the A82 west for two miles straight and the hotel is on the left by Gartnavel Hospital.

                Cleanliness I he rooms.

                He fact hat we had another couple open the door and walk into our room as it had been let out again! Question about accuracy and indeed our privacy.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                The location is good, free parking and a good public bus service. It's comfortable, very clean and friendly

                Breakfast is a bit expensive, especially if, like me, toast and coffee are all that's required

                great breakfast

                The 5pm to 7pm dinner menu did not vary day to day

                The bathroom looked clean, there were no stains or fungi in the tile seams. Also the shower head was clean.

                There were hair under the bedsheet. The carpet was not clean and had quite some stains. The curtains did not look very clean and I did not have an overall feeling of cleanliness in the bed area.

                The location was good for us.

                Fruit ran out at breakfast. Car park not very appealing at front of hotel

                Although it is in the middle of the city, it is in a very peaceful location. Room was functional, with good range of TV services. 5 minutes walk to Hyndland train Station which has around 15 trains per hour into the city centre. Hotel is right beside Great Western Road and is almost in the grounds of Gartnavel Hospital, only 10 mins walk from Byres Road with good bars and restaurants.

                Is the second time have stayed here now. It is a clean and comfortable hotel. The food is excellent.

                Is a little noisy from the outside traffic. Butnothing major

                It would be unfair to really judge as we were only there for a very short time ,because the hotel is very close to the hospital we stayed but only for bed and breakfast for one night,but it will be a hotel we will visit for a holiday break . The staff were all very friendly ,from the cleaners to the receptionest.

                As we had a twin room the only thing I would say would be the mattress on the beds , felt they could do wth updating not comfortable at all.If we were staying longer I would have had to say something .
