Glasgow minibreak

Ideal location in the city centre although quite noisy at night but that's to be expected. Good choice for a budget hotel close to transport links, pubs & restaurants.

Stay for a concert

We booked this hotel due to an overnight stay for a concert at the SSE Hydro. It was in a 10min walking distance from the hydro and the shops for the following day. The room was big but very basic/old fashioned but clean. The mattress was hard and not very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning we had to wait 10mins as they were so busy but once we got taken through it was a very nice breakfast indeed. For one night stay and what we wanted it for it was fine.

Reunion Weekend

Hotel was adequate for my needs. Certain aspects in the room need looking at. 1 The window would not close and Argyll St is very noisy. 2 The net curtains were very grubby. 3 The cistern was badly cracked. 4 The bath should have grab handles as it was difficult to get in and out safely.
