“Charm, location, value”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Modern rooms within a charming historic building. Great value and location close to the central district. The gym across the street was inexpensive and very well equipped. Extensive breakfast choices. Very helpful and friendly service. We enjoyed our large room in the back on the third floor for 3 nights.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at this hotel. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist, as we were early for check-in she checked if our room was ready for us, it wasn't quite so she offered us a complimentary pot of tea while we waited and then let us know when it was ready.

Our room was an upgraded room and it was very spacious, the beds were comfortable and for the first time in a long time I didn't need to ask for extra pillows etc!

Breakfast at this hotel is excellent, i've stayed in a number of hotels in Glasgow and have to say that this is definately the best hotel breakfast I have had, you have all your continental items and juices to choose from and then you can order from the menu for your cooked breakfast, everything we tried was delicious and fresh and once again the staff were very friendly and attentive.

Staff around the whole hotel were very friendly and when Lewis about the history of the hotel he was able to tell us all about it.

The hotels location is fantastic for accessing shopping, theatre and dining in the city and there is also a secure Q park across the road, and bus and train stations are close by.

We look forward to returning to this hotel in the very near future :)

We were in Glasgow during a heatwave in late July 2013 and staying at this hotel. It was recommended by some Glaswegion friends, who we were meeting for a wedding party close to the hotel, and their recommendation proved well founded. The hotel is an excellent blend of superbly preserved original architecture combined with tasteful modern styling throughout. This includes the 'centerpiece', a beautifully restored lift with the old concertina metal gates. Our 3rd floor air conditioned room was very clean, smart and spacious. It also had large opening windows which gave a light, airy atmosphere and not the usual 'sealed in' feeling.
The staff were excellent without exception. Every one of the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. The location of this hotel proved to be excellent. Glasgow's top-end stores are a stroll away, as are excellent bars and restaurants. Both the tour bus and the normal bus stops are close, and Glasgow Central train station is an easy walk (weather permitting). Next time we are in Glasgow, this is the hotel we'll choose.

I can't fault this hotel. It is in a brilliant location and the staff were just brilliant nothing was too much hassle for them. I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody looking for a central hotel. Our room was spotless,spacious and well decorated. There was lots of choice for breakfast and the food was delicious. I would definitely go back again

We stayed here as a last minute deal just to recharge the batteries after few hectic months.
From the minute you walk in there is a peaceful ambience even though it is right in the middle of the city centre.
The receptionist who greeted us was very efficient and helpful telling us where we had to go and where breakfast was.
We loved the original features..the old gated lift and artwork.
Our room was small but spotless and comfortable and had everything we needs.
Breakfast was excellent. Cooked perfectly and plenty choice.
I absolutely couldn't fault this hotel and would absolutely recommend it and will definitely return.

I stayed. there on the recommendation of a colleague and will certainly return.

Building historical and has art gallery on 3rd floor. The lift is an old fashioned one with the gate - just don't look down as you step in from the top floor.

My room was a reasonable size and spotlessly clean. I couldn't get the air con cold enough but the manager kindly sorted it out for me whilst I was out for a meal..

The bed was extremely comfortable and one of the best night's sleep I've had for a long time.

Breakfast was very good, lots of choice, and even better, the Scottish breakfast includes haggis!

When ever I am in Glasgow I try and get into this hotel. It has lovely rooms and brilliant friendly staff. It is only a small hotel and it is quirky - that's why I like it! It has an old style lift with a gate and the some nice features like stained glass windows. Apart from other guests occasionally not closing the lift gate (which means it cannot be called) I cannot fault this lovely little hotel. The sweet porridge for breakfast is also amazing!
