Booked in there for a special weekend break for myself and wife. My wife checked in before me and when i turned up i couldn't believe the size of the bedroom; it was tiny! They had somehow managed to shoe-horn a double bed into what was certainly no bigger than a single bed room. I should add that the room was facing out into a dark dull alley-way.
I complained to the management and the manager then showed me a disabled room in the basement which wasn't suitable, and then a so called 'de-lux' room on the first floor. The room was better, but still no-where near the picture on the website (i believe they have taken a pic of the biggest room in the hotel for this!)
Not wanting to cause too much fuss and appreciating the efforts of the manager i agreed to take the room. Due to the fact we had a restaurant booking, i told him i'd have to leave moving the bags until later, and he said the staff would have them moved up to the room.
When i returned later that night the bags were not moved, and when we moved them up to the room, I couldn't believe how warm the room was. I hadn't noticed before, but there were hot water pipes running up the wall beside the window. We had to open the window all night and have the fan running constantly, and even then I woke up in the morning in an uncomfortable sweat.
The is at a time during the mildest August in Glasgow for years - (i know because iI live in Glasgow)
The breakfast was continental, although expect no more than packet croissant/muffin, small boxes of cereal and tea and coffee.
Now, i'll have to say something good about the hotel!
The free minibar is a nice touch, even if it is low stocked. The TV's are also good (playsation/DVD's in some rooms, but not ours!) The en-suite was nice although the fan was terribly noisy.
The manager tried to be helpful to be fair to him, but the hotel was pretty booked.
And the decor was as nice as it could be, but as we say in Glasgow....
".........ye canny polish a sh**e!"
