Unfortunately my friends and i had a terrible nights sleep when we stayed at the Glasgow pond hotel. The decor is quite nice and rooms are of a decent size so everything looked good to start with, despite our initial first impressions of how the hotel looked from the outside (not good at all) but everything went downhill when we went to bed...
I have stayed in lots of hotels and can say without a doubt these beds are the worst i've ever slept in in a hotel bar none (travelodge beats it by a mile!). Very hard and extremely uncomfortable. I think i could feel every spring in the bed. The duvet was super thin as were the pillows and the bed linen was quite rough which didn't help. It felt as if the hotel really skimped on these areas and is kitted out with bargain basement beds/ quilts and linen, not very inviting.
Other reviews of this hotel are correct when they say that the noise from corridors and adjacent rooms is very loud. At 6 am we were woken by guests walking down the corridor and could hear every word of their conversation as if they were in the same room. The noise of doors banging is very loud and not muffled as it usually is in most hotels when heard through a closed room door.
The girl at reception was however very helpful and we didn't have a problem with the service at all but when it comes down to it if you can hardly sleep because a bed is so bad then the hotel isn't worth the money at all, and i'm afraid to say at £60 quid a pop I felt as if i had been robbed. I'll sleep in the car next time (it will certainly be comfier).
