“Cheap and cheerful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

Hotel was cheap and for the money was exactly what we expected. Room and bathroom were clean, comfy and had TV, hairdryer, tea/coffee facilities. Breakfast buffet was great - no complaints. Location was excellent, 15 minute walk to SECC Hydro for concert. Pub next door was friendly, cheap and decent for something to eat before concert. Would stay again and recommend.

Stayed for one night to allow my daughter to go to concert at nearby Hydro.

One double, one twin both £55 including breakfast. Rooms, in the main hotel, were fine. Bathrooms clean but shower a bit weak. Small car park which was handy. Hotel bar/restaurant never opened which meant there wasn't anyplace to sit/socialise. Breakfast was excellent, full range of hot foods, highly recommended.

Area excellent for restaurants and bars. Too many too count in every direction. The Three Judges good for real ales. Visit Kelvingrove Museum just along the road.

Would return to hotel as long as price was reasonable for a short visit.

Nearly forgot to say staff friendly especially at breakfast.

Room Tip: Back of hotel quieter.

My partner and I stayed here the 4th till the 6th october, I was a little worried at most of the reviews but after staying here I think these people just love too moan and complain for something to do, we had a fab room in the annex which was my worry, it was basic and could do with a little refurb but we got what we paid for, nice comfy clean bed, small flat screen tv with free view, huge bathroom just great!! And the breakfast was AMAZING and the staff couldnt be more helpful especially the blonde lady didnt catch her name unfortunatly, and also the housekeeping were great changing our bins hoovering and changeing our towels, dont let the bad reviews put you off just moaners with high expectations..will be back again!!

Visited Glasgow to attend a concert at the new Hydro (Rod Stewart) so the Argyll was relatively close to the venue, with us another couple who share our thoughts about this hotel. The hotel is a short taxi journey from Queen St Railway Station, the hotel is in a relatively quiet area the reception area is small but attractive with the walls decorated with interesting prints relating to Scottish history. once processed we took the lift to our floor and found our room, to be honest we were not expecting very much but were pleasantly surprised to find the room very tastefully decorated and had a large double FOUR POSTER bed which was very comfortable, the bathroom had a large corner bath with over head shower. we had booked B&B and found the restaurant decorated in the same Olde Scottish type theme as the rest of the hotel we enjoyed a reasonably cheap drink at the bar in the evening after attending concert, Breakfast was very good with all the usual foodstuffs on offer in a buffet, staff were all polite and friendly as well as being very attentive. this was a great change from the usual mass produced hotel experience we have all become used to. would we go back ? Mmmm YES ! I think we would.

Room Tip: We had room 205 although facing the fort of the building we did not detect any traffic noise etc...

Stayed here last night as an expedient and easy alternative to travelling home after attending an event at the "SSE Hydro". Chosen for both cost and location, as well as copious reference to T.A. the hotel did exactly what it said it would. It provided clean and reasonable accommodation as well as free parking and a good full Scottish breakfast this morning. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and could not have been more helpful. If you were looking for 3 or 4 star luxury, then this is not the place for you. The hotel is showing signs of it's age and overall looks a bit tired and jaded, with the rooms being a bit on the tiny side. But Hey!!!! What do you want for £75 per night for 2 people including breakfast. This is a budget hotel and does what it says it will do. For an overnight stop within the West End of Glasgow and easy walking distance of the SECC complex, and lots of other major attractions, it does the job. Sutherlands (its own restaurant in the basement) was closed last night, but the receptionist apologised and gave us recommendations for two or three alternative eateries. Would we return? Probably not, as with a bit of further extensive internet research, we believe there are better establishments within a stones throw, for not a lot more.

Room Tip: As a lot of the rooms face onto Sauchiehall Street, there is the possibility of traffic noise during...

We’ve stayed one night in this hotel ealry september. We arrived relatively late and this hotel seemed to offer a good level of confort(confirmed by scotish tourism board label at the entrance).

In fact, despite we ‘re easy travelers, we’ve been very disappointed by the level of service and the lack of honesty of the management.
Firstable, you’re asked to pay your room in advance (£120 – the webiste of the hotel only shows a rate of £80 for a double room).
Then, we’ve discovered that the room was not perfectly clean : dust on windoswhills, marks on the bedside tables and strange looking shower gel and shampoo in the shower (whiteish diphasic liquid). Last not but not least, when we wanted to go to bed, it appeared that only a part of the sheets has been changed : fitted sheet were not new and had stains, pillowcases had usage folds.
The night staff had been very kind and helpful to give us some spare sheets.

The day after, the receptionnist welcomed our complaint with a lazy smile, telling us that the manager was not reachable, but he would contact us later in the day. It didn’t happen. The following day, we succeed to reach the manager to share our concern; he told us that, following, his check, we were wrong, but he offered a discount of 5 % for the room.

My recommandation is to avoid this hotel.
If you ‘re lucky, you will have a correct stay (because this hotel is correct and a part of the staff is very nice – particularly night and breakfast), and if not, you might feel ripped of.

Stayed for a week after mortgage cock-up left us temporarily homeless. Friendly and helpful staff, very comfortable room (306) which faced on to Sauchiehall Street but was surprisingly quiet. Free parking 6pm-8am in a quiet street just across the road.
