10,0 Excellent
Cons:the room could have been doing with a fresh lick of paint and a little updating but all in all for the price and the location we had very little to complain about . It had everythin that anyone on an over night or short stay requires and we would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting glasgow its location in the heart of the city centre is fabulous and noise level was not an issue .
8,5 Great
Pros:Great location and very helpful and friendly staff. The room was spacious and generally comfortable.
Cons:The bathroom needed some repair— a light was broken and a shelf by the sink was loose from the wall.
6,5 Okay
Pros:The location is great - close to many things, easy walk to the airport bus.
Cons:Breakfast was mediocre at best. Toilet in the room dripped all night, which wasn't too much of a problem due to the constant road noise. Shower head could not be lifted high enough to be over my head due to a short hose and the pressure was highly variable. Bathroom mirror is placed such that I had a nice view of my bellybutton but could not see my face to shave. Room was far too warm on arriving and turning the radiator "off" still left it heating.
9,7 Excellent
Pros:Very central hotel for shops and pubs. Staff very pleasant.
Cons:The bar area is a very nice place to sit whether it be in the comfy sofas at the TV or at the window overlooking the busy street watching the world go by and so it would be nice if the bar was open in the afternoon even for soft/hot drinks.
6,0 Okay
Pros:The location was good and the staff was friendly.
Cons:The room was not very clean; and most unfortunately it was mainly in the bathroom. The toilet had not been properly cleaned. Also the shower head needed tightening; when turned on - water spouted in nearly every direction making it impossible to not make a giant mess. The pillows were flat and the mattress was stiff. I'm not picky about these things as long as they are clean - which they appeared to be.
5,4 Passable
Pros:Central location.
Cons:Very basic but price reflective of this.
10,0 Excellent
Pros:Excellent value for money. Very clean, with helpful and pleasant staff. The location is great for our girls shopping week-ends. Would recommend highly.
5,1 Passable
Pros:The hotel was close to the train station.
Cons:The hotel room was very outdated and could have been cleaner. The hotel is way over priced for what you actually get. It is also close to a bar that has very loud karaoke. The price of this hotel should have been at least half of what we paid.
8,8 Great
Pros:close to station and shopping
Cons:lack of hot water in afternoon.
10,0 Excellent
Pros:The wonderful wood work and decor in the bar and breakfast rooms on the 1st floor - very old European.
