Stayed at this hotel out of desperation recently. Although the price was only £45 for a double room at the last minute and the room was clean and comfortable it was fairly basic. The duvet was quite light - thank goodness, it was the summer time or it would have been freezing with no extra blankets in the cupboard - it is Glasgow after all. There was a wet towel in the bathroom and the bathroom was a little grubby although thankfully the shower was hot. Also no hair dryer in the room but tea/coffee making facilities were welcome. The management in the hotel weren't overly friendly when I arrived albeit it was late enough in the evening when I landed on the doorstep looking a bit disheveled.
The breakfast was only average even though it was hot food and a selection of canned fruit. Why it is impossible for b&bs and hotels to have fresh fruit? Sorry you could take a small red apple if you wanted it. It is such as simple thing to do to buy apples, organes, kiwis etc cut them up and put them in a bowl. Also no natural yogurt and the hot breakfast was obviously the cheapest pudding, rashers, sausages etc they could get from a bargain basement supermarket - yuck! I really hate getting crap food when it is so easy to make a decent English breakfast.
When I was checking out I also asked the receptionist could I leave my bag for an hour or so while I popped into town. I'm surprised she actually looked up from playing with her iPhone to answer me but I did get a nod of a head. No attempt to get up and take my bag and put it somewhere secure for me - I don't know if there even was such as facility because when I arrived back it was sitting in reception where I'd left it for anyone to walk away with!!
Crikey it doesn't take a lot to run a b&b so not to get these things right really bugs me especially when I pay £45 for the privilege. Won't be back in a hurry.
