“Good location, basic rooms and not the best of stays!”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

I arrived off a late train from london at 2330 to be told at check in that despite having a pre paid voucher I needed to check in again! I was so tired I did and then had to climb up stairs to the fourth floor. The rooms itself was okay but basic and the wifi didn't work. I got to sleep quickly but had to be up earlier than I wanted as breakfast finished by 0845 or some ungodly hour. The breakfast however was good. For the price it would have been ok minus the problem at check in and rubbish breakfast time in the a.m!!

Reviewed 15 December 2013

Glasgow is an expensive city so you can expect to pay high prices for accommodation. The merchant is extremely good value for its location and offers a comfortable, no thrills stay. Just what I wanted so more money could be spent on enjoying the beautiful city.
The staff are extremely efficient and friendly and do their best for their guests. If there is a problem, JUST ASK! I'm pretty sure someone will rectify it, rather than just complaining about it on here.
My room was very spacious, clean and warm. What more could I ask for? Everything was basic but functioned to my satisfaction and need.
I would recommend this place and will probably be returning when I am next in town. There's also a lovely diner very close by, which is perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner, called Peckhams Diner. Delicious food that's amazing value!
