This trip was to have a look at the university and I chose the hotel due to its proximity to the uni. I shared a room with my 18 year old daughter.I booked a twin room but we had a triple. It was really spacious with a large ?king sized bed and a good single. There was a large desk in the room with a kettle and cups. The room had a hairdryer. The bath room was small but clean, and the towels were fine. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the court yard. It was quiet. There is a bus stop immediately outside the hotel. The hop on hop off stops at this as well. There are many restaurants close to the hotel-Indian, Italian and Greek. Also the Two sisters.
We spend 2 nights (Friday/Saturday). The Friday was Bonfire night and I was slightly worried about parking my little Mini convertible on the road. The side road was quiet with nice looking houses. My car was fine and parking is free after 18h00 on a Friday.
The breakfast room is in the basement. The breakfast is huge and if you are so inclined you could really eat a lot. There were hot and cold options. My daughter is vegetarian and had sufficient hot options. The staff was good despite a packed morning on the Saturday. The end time is a bit early and everybody probably rocked up at the same latest possible time. The Sunday was much more quite as we were there very early.
The reception staff were friendly and I noticed that one of the chaps carried luggage for a female guest. There is no lift and there are 3 floors and a basement, so lots of stairs. They were not particularly steep and were wide and sort of spiral, grand mansion type stairs.
All in all very good. I was told Glasgow was a tip(mainly by people who has not been). We really had a good time.
