2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2010

Corridors were badly lit, narrow, and inadequately sign posted. Very easy to get lost in rabbit warren. We kept entering storage cupboards by mistake. Couldnt find lifts/stairs back to reception. Room small. Bath child size..anyone of normal build would not have fitted. Carpet marked with what looked like glue. Connecting door very thin ..so could hear 'neighbours' easily. Had to use pillows to stop light coming in. Pillows hard. Bed hard. Air conditioning kept waking us too. About 3.0 there was a noise for about 20min as if furniture was being dragged around on a non carpeted floor. Room was cold when we arrived..we managed to get the heating to work, but there were no instructions. In fact there was no information of any sort in the room. The pavement and parking spaces had not been cleared of snow so car got stuck.We didnt eat at this hotel, but went to a place opposite for dinner called 'Sisters' which was EXCELLENT.

Stayed here early November and had booked the room through late rooms. Very good deal and to be honest, I wouldn't have expected to pay more for it. We arrived early in the morning and the staff were very helpful in finding me somewhere I could park the car long term as well as check in early as our room was already ready. The room was small but everything we needed. It was also located smack in the middle of the hall, not even into the corridors which had doors into them so we did get alot of noise from people walking past at the night and morning.
Other than that, the room was great, bed very comfortable, didn't want for anything else. The location was very handy for us, near the west end and city centre. The room was very warm at night and we didn't want to open the windows because we were facing the street so would have got traffic noise but it was all fine for the price we paid. A smart looking hotel in a great location. Plenty to choose from around about it

Some of Glasgow's best bars and restaurants outside (Mother India, Crabshakk) ; as is the lively area near the university. Some nice bars close up as well (Ivy, Ben Nevis).

The hotel is soothing, calm, dark, warm, modern, clean. Dark decor, atmospheric lighting. Crisp white bedding and air conditioning that works without being noisy makes for a good night's sleep. Doesn't have the big, glass showiness of Radisson Blu, but certainly has an up-to-date ambience - and compensates with the more intimate scale.

Central Station is about 30 minutes walk or 5 quid in a taxi. It's worth doing the walk to see just how many smart looking bars and restaurants are in the area - especially just south of Sauchiehall Street. Some quite pricey but definitely plenty of class.

No problems with check in, staff were great, room small but nicely furnished. Like that you could watch tv from in the bath! Did not like the fact there was no mirror in the bedroom and that it smelled a little damp. Bar was nice great cocktails and service with a smile, Surrouding area a bit rough but not too bad. Restaurant was good too. All around had a great weekend away!

We wanted to stay in the westend for the 1st 4 nights of our break to Glasgow and I booked the Lorne despite reading some pretty poor reviews. So I was a bit apprehensive but no need. Reception is open and airy. Our room was quite big, very modern and clean. It had everything we needed and it all worked. The bathroom was spotless with a showerbath -good powerful shower and the built in speakers were a nice touch. The bed was comfy but the pillows were like bricks! We asked for softer ones and these were delivered to our room with no problem. We didn't eat breakfast there while we stayed but we did eat in Bukharah. The food was very good and the waiting staff were friendly and attentive-maybe just a tad over attentive! The bar area was groovy and the staff cheerful and helpful. The little room on the left of reception with the sofas had a nice feel and was just the spot to relax in with a drink and the fire-wow! I want one! Great location for Kelvingrove museum-we went 2 days in a row and still didn't see everything! Nice, too, to be so close to the park. A not so nice thing was the noise in our room at night from the kitchen fan and boy was it noisy! And it seems a bit petty but a drawer handle had been put in the drawer instead of being fixed back on and I feel its the attention to small details like this that really matter. Aside from these couple of grumbles I would go back if I wanted to stay in the westend.

I stayed at the lorne with my husband on a weeknight, lovely boutiqe hotel with very smart trendy interior
The room was really small with only inches between the bed & wall, we couldnt pass each other at the same time ,if it wasnt a discount rate we had i would have definatley complained about the lack of space.
No mirror in the bedroom either which wasnt too handy when hubby was using the bathroom & i wanted to dry my hair when i rang reception i was told none of the rooms have mirrors !!!
Surely its a basic in a 4 star hotel ? wouldnt hurry back solely because of this which is a shame cos otherwise its a lovely hotel

Got this room at a discounted price through last minute.com so it was good value for money. On arrival and departure the reception staff were unwelcoming and seemed uninterested, which put a dampener on my overall opinion of this hotel. The room & hotel decor were nice, very modern and sleek with all mod cons. However cleanliness was not up to standard as i found a previous guests necklace in room. Location very good no hotel car park but parking avaliable on street close by.
