Premier Inn Glasgow City Centre (Charing Cross) Hotel

Reviewed 14 December 2010

After hours of plane delays and travelling from Edinburgh to Glasgow, the Premier Inn was my Sunday night saviour at a very reasonable rate. Checked in at 12.15am, room was large, clean and I had a good night's sleep. A short walk to/from the roads which take you to/from the airport.

The hotel was comfortable, clean and had everything you need. Also I saw that some other reviews mentioned the temperature? Well when I stayed there it was lovely! Even the corridors were roasting! At the moment the weather is really bad, snow on the ground etc so they really made sure you were warm. I noticed they left a note in the room explaining all the things they had done to keep the rooms warm and that you could speak to them if you weren't warm enough. They're obviously really trying to look after their customers.

Prompt check in and really helpful at reception - cheery, welcoming, really nice staff.

My friends and I did have a wee knock on the door around 9pm because we were a bit noisy. I'll be honest that impressed me. I would want the staff to do that for me if I had noisy neighbours.

We also opted for the pizza take aways. Quick, pretty good price and really tasty! Staff were really friendly in the bar.

We were going out along Bath St so location was perfect.

I would definitely stay there again. Well impressed by it.

We stayed at this hotel for a 6 day break. We were going to a soccer match & 2 concerts over the 6 days. It is just around the corner from the ABC 02 Academy, where one concert was held and it just took 20 mins in a taxi to go to the Breahead Arena for the other concert from this hotel. The train station is next door. We drove over to Glasgow for this break and parking for the 6 days worked out at just £10.00-£12.00/ per 24hrs, the carpark was next door. Hotel was easy to find, the GPS coordinates are on the website and the sat nav as good as brought us to the door. Great location for shopping, few mins walk away from Argyle St. Restaurants and bars are just around the corner. Alot of the restaurants had good early bird menus. The staff were very helpful and friendly. When we checked in, the room we were given was small, ok for 1 or 2 day break but not for 6 days. When we contacted reception they changed the room to a bigger one straight away and they were very busy as there were alot of check ins at the time. The hotel has its own restaurant and bar which we used a few times and the staff were very friendly and good spirited. Most nights we walked back late to the hotel and felt quite safe. I read in another review that the hotel may be in a red light district but saw no evidence of that. This hotel was perfect for what we needed for the type of break we were on.

Have never stayed at a Premier Inn before, so didn't have any expectations. was not disappointed - considering we weren't spending any time there other than to sleep I didn't need a lot of amenities. the room itself was fine, nothing fancy. the location of the hotel was great, though. a restaurant right across from the lobby let us bring food to our room one night, even though they don't offer take-away. we just had to bring the plates and silverware back the next day. if you want to take the train it is literally next door - especially convenient if you are traveling elsewhere in the UK by train. the hotel is very close the theatres and shopping, and easy to spot if you get lost trying to find it (like we did) - look for the purple lit up sign in the sky. just around the corner is a pub called the Griffin Bar - I highly recommend spending time there.

We were booked into the Premier Inn as part of a prize so cannot comment on value for money - location for the theatre was great as it was right next door and is only a 5/10 minute walk in for shopping. We had a twin room on the 1st floor which was cost and decent size but the heating was awful - we did have the dep manager come up but still remained frozen all night after returning from a night out. We were also warned by the taxi driver upon arrival that its in the red light area but to me I would rather have known that than not when going out at night - made me more security conscious.

What you'd expect of a Premier Inn - nothing much in the common areas, cramped rooms. But amazing bed, duvet and pillows - if anything TOO soft. Would have thought it could have been a bit better value though
