lovely room & great central location

We had two rooms with three in and both rooms were large, individually quirky & had everything you need. I would rate it higher than a 3 star. Large bathroom & good shower. All staff were very obliging. Well done Best Western! xx

Excellent for city break

Staff very helpful and friendly.. Room very comfortable. A good location for the city centre. Train station very near if you wish to travel outside Glasgow. Just a pity that the hotel had trouble with the water supply during my stay! All in all, a lovely experience. Would stay there again.

With my family we found the bathroom dirty by blood, the room damp and smelly, no lift and wi-fi with bad reception. The staff is friendly but not helpful.
