I stayed here twice in 4 months on vacation and had a pleasant stay each time.
This hotel near the University of Glasgow is in a neighborhood that felt safe to walk around and was within walking distance of many restaurants and museums with the Botanical Garden nearly right out the front door. Walking paths along the river allowed for peaceful walks away from traffic. There are also 2 subway stops close by making for a quick trip downtown (and to the train station for destinations farther away).
The Hotel is family run and what a kind family they are. Seemingly always in motion, whether during the breakfast rush or tending to the daily needs of the hotel and clients, they were always ready to share a smile or a story and very helpful in answering all my travel questions. I had to change my reservation plans a few times and they were so patient and accommodating.
The accommodations are comfortable, clean and basic. One visit I had an en suite room and the next, just the in-room sink and I have no complaints. I could have my coffee or tea in my room and the coffee pot and cups were clean.
On my first stay, I did originally get a room in the front where I was able to hear street traffic but when I was in a room facing the back, the room was very quiet.
Nothing fancy, not luxury but perfect for my vacation needs- safe, clean, accessible to so much in the city and pleasant owners and staff.
