Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice, clean room. A bargain stay. Only drawback, the really steep stairs. Great transport links into the city. A bus every ten minutes! Nice bag of breakfast. Hope to call again when the lurgy is finished. Thank you. Looking forward to my next trip

I thought the house was lovely, full of quirky items. The stairs are quite a feat especially if you have difficulties, we were on the 2nd floor and although the room was lovely and I did like being on that floor, the stairs were hard. The only complaint I have is that as it was so windy one night the windows rattled each time there was a gust as they are the old sash type. They could do with being replaced with double glazed ones as we could also hear a lot of traffic on the main road outside. Other than that the value for money was good and even though it is not in the city centre it is very easy to get around using the subway. If you get the chance go down to Byres Road, full of small shops and cafes, and also the Botanic Gardens. We only discovered it on the last day when going to Oran Mor. If you get chance go the re for a lunchtime play, a pie and a pint

Stayed here when attending a wedding at Oran Mhor which is just 300m down the road. Quirky little place with individual decor. Steep stairs inside so not suitable for persons with limited mobility. Room was neat, tidy and very warm. Once the radiator was adjusted it was absolutely fine. Cosy ensuite. Continental breakfast was good. The location was excellent for us and there are loads of pubs, shops and places to eat nearby so a good base to explore this part of the city. Good value for money. I would stay there again if in that part of the city.

Stayed 2 nights for my daughter's wedding and booked the family room. No parking is available which we were aware off. The family room has no bath and was not overly clean with the wallpaper peeling and chipped. Room was roasting too but could not turn down radiators. Continental breakfast was very poor quality !! Staff nowhere to be seen and each time we had to go look for someone. Would not recommend I'm afraid !!

We stayed for 2 nights at the weekend and the place was brilliant. Really friendly staff and breakfast inided in the price. Decent bathroom facilities and wifi. The hotel decor looks a little tired, but it's much more than comfortable and I would definitely recommend for a small city break

Booked this place out for my family when we got married at Oran mor last month and it was fantastic, really quirky charming hotel! Staff were brilliant and couldn’t do enough for us. As some people have mentioned it isn’t super modern but it has everything you need at a good price and was completely spotless during our stay, and it was more than made up for in the character and amazing design of the place! We also organised for them to do a full Scottish breakfast for us on the Sunday which was fab!

Too old, too tired, too far up two long flights to room 14, too slow the shower stream and too expensive. In particular the website gives misleading information about local free parking - it is unlikely to be available as it is used by visitors to the Botanics

Situated in the west end of Glasgow great part of the city. Close to lots of shops and restaurants. The hotel is a very old and quirky hotel, a bit like been in the Adams family house. We loved it. Very large room (no 3) good wi fi connection, comfy bed and pillows. Staff very friendly and helpful.
