It's my third time of staying at the Heritage Hotel and I will definitely be coming back.
Staff are friendly and very helpful providing excellent customer service. Rooms are clean and tidy, wifi access and breakfast good.

Great location and 5 minutes walk to Glasgow University. I would recommend the Heritage Hotel

This hotel's location can't be beat. It's within close proximity of convenience stores, small cafes, Byres road (shopping and restaurant hub).

When we checked in, the staff kindly helped us with our bags, which was a great relief. However I notice that we were lucky because there were two nice gentlemen on duty. There are days when an older man and a young lady man the reception. So if you have heavy bags , you will need to consider if this is the best accomodation for you.

Not all rooms are on the ground floor, some are on the second and third (!)

We stayed in room 19. There was no wifi and this was a great disappointment. It was promised in the hotel literature.

Another thing to note is to ask your taxi driver to go to Cecil street rather than Great Western Road when you first arrive. This is because there are about 10steps from Great Western Road to the level that the hotel is located. Cecil Street is a side road and it is easy to wheel bags to the hotel which only has a few steps at the entrance.

Toilet is spacious but the water pressure at shower is low. It is after all a 3-star guest house, and rates are thus fair for what you get.

Room was very clean, functional, only 3 coat hangers though. Good location, near the subway, Glasgow Tours bus stop etc, some good bars/restaurants near by although later in the evening they mainly cater for the student clowd. The cistern in our room took forever to refill. Breakfast was OK as long as you didn't have something call turkey rashers - what are they!? Would have preferred Lorne sausages as we were in Scotland, however for the cost per night no real complaints - good value.

Not much in the way of parking, maybe space for 5 small cars at the rear of the hotel. Stairs very steep, so not suitable for elderly or infirm.

Room Tip: Only saw my room, so couldn't comment

We stayed for 4 nights. Fantastic location for city centre, touring or West End. The rooms are very comfortable, breakfast was ample. Staff very friendly and extremely helpful. For a 3 star hotel we felt we had great value for money and will definitely be going back. We had a great time and we thank Ian and all the staff for making it so great. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: There is no lift, so if you are older choose a room on a lower level.

Stayed here for a night out in the west end. More or less just round the corner.Good value for money.Staff had good customer skills.Long climb to single room in attic.Let down a wee bit by shower in morning going hot and cold told by reception this was due to boiler being in basement. breakfast not best quality but okay.

this was a last minute booking for myself and my two teenage children and we only stayed at the heritage for one night. the entrance to the hotel was slightly confusing as we arrived by taxi and were slightly disorientated by the location! we had been at a party the night before and the 24hr reception was very convenient as we didnt arrive back until 2am and we were welcomed by friendly staff. the family room we had been given was pleasant although the bedding didnt smell very fresh. as we drew back the curtains in the morning we were greeted by the very picturesque view of an old scabby wall. my daughter found it extremely hard to sleep during the night as we were in the basement of the hotel we experienced very loud noises throughout the night. the cooked breakfast was awful. who eats turkey rashers? they were more like solid pink plastic rashers. the sausages were vile and the eggs were poorly cooked. however the fresh fruit on offer was delicious. 2/5, and i am glad we only stayed one night.

Room Tip: request a room on the upper floors if you are staying as a family
