We only booked this hotel as we wanted somewhere cheap n’cheerful for a weekend concert break near Glasgow City Centre. The location could not be faulted – a few minutes walk to all the main shopping centres/restaurants/bars and nightlife.
Unfortunately the weekend that we stayed, the hotel was host to many groups of youngsters on stag and hen party weekends! Any thoughts of having a peaceful night’s sleep was shattered by all night room parties and slamming doors. The staff were apologetic but said that it was the “season for parties” and that there was little that they could do about the night time festivities! We’re not humbugs – but when a crowd come in from clubbing at around 4am and proceed to party in their rooms – loudly - until 6.30am then a sense of humour failure is imminent!
Leaving that aside, the hotel is still undergoing some form of renovation and there is much building work taking place on the lower floors. The hotel image is somewhat jaded by the appearance of large rubbish skips outside the main entrance.
The rooms are large and well appointed with very comfortable beds and all the facilities that are required in a budget hotel. The one disappointment was that the bathroom had no ventilation facilities and being internal with no windows – all the steam and bathroom vapours were wafted into the room for dispersal via the outside window!
Hotel facilities include a restaurant and bar which seemed popular with some guests – including the supply of late night pizzas to hungry drinkers! It was surprising to find that there are no telephones in the rooms, so there is no way of contacting reception other than physically going down to the desk – perhaps this is so that you can’t phone and complain about the noise! Hotel security is another issue – access is via reception – which in the main is unmanned. Anyone could walk into the premises with little fear of being challenged. It appears that in the evenings the reception staff double up to assist in the bar therefore leaving the entrance area without cover – another reason to always double lock your room door!
