Recently stayed at this hotel on a short leisure break. I had really been looking forward to our stay after having seen a feature on a TV programme and looking up the very interesting history of the hotel. The hotel is very central, we got the train into central station and didn't even need to step outside to access the hotel. It was very handy for the main shopping areas in Glasgow and the restaurant that we had booked a table at for dinner. First impressions were not brilliant as I did not find the reception to be very welcoming. For such a 'Grand' hotel, the reception is very minimal and I did not find the receptionist to be very friendly or welcoming. However, we were quickly checked in and made our way to our room, located on the 2nd floor. The room was spacious, modern and clean, with a fantastic power shower. We enjoyed a drink or two in the bar, Champagne Central and found the service to be good there with a great selection of cocktails and other drinks to choose from. We did not experience any noise from the train station or the street outside during the night, however we were disturbed by the constant noise from the radiator in our room and also from what sounded like a delivery in the middle of the night. Breakfast offered a wide range of items to choose from. However, although the breakfast room was not busy, we were seated right beside another couple, a little bit too close for comfort, which prevented us from relaxing over what was otherwise a nice breakfast.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is certainly facinating, however the modern rennovation is very minimal and not so 'grand' as it could be. I would like to see more of a reference to it's very glamourous past.
