I had booked a midweek break for my partner and I for a special occasion. I booked it through Travel Republic which meant that everything was already prepaid and I that didn't have to pay anything on arrival or departure. I then decided to upgrade my room, I contacted the hotel who said for a charge of £60 for the two nights my room would be upgraded with a Kingsize bed, Slippers and Bathrobes, Strawberries with Dipping Chocolate and A Bottle of wine on arrival. I can honestly say I will never "Upgrade" again. Don't get me wrong the staff at the hotel were very efficient and polite but when we were given our room, none of the extras had been included. I had to go back to Reception to explain. The girl stated she would do her best to sort the situation out. The Wine soon arrived followed by the Strawberries, it consisted of a plate with 5 Unwashed Strawberries and a Small dish of half melted chocolate. After paying £60 I was a little annoyed about this. I didn't have my bathrobes for another 5 hours either. I decided to head out and see what Glasgow had to offer and to cool off as I felt I'd been ripped off.
I didn't eat in the hotel once, even though breakfast was included but this was mainly because it being midweek the breakfast finishes at 9:30am. I wasn't up in time for any of these days. Nor did we have a drink in the hotel as we'd heard of the prices people had been paying. Considering the hotel being above and beside the train station we didn't hear any nose. I love the the position of the hotel and how central it is to everything. This is defiantly a bonus. As regards my other upsets it still wouldn't put me off staying here although I would ensure that I didn't book breakfast and I didn't upgrade my room.
