Millennium Hotel Glasgow
Ranked #73 of 93 Hotels in Glasgow
Reviewed 27 October 2012

Spent a night here on business and was put in room 103. This room sits right on the extractor chimney and the constant noise makes this room awful. The view is so bad that they have frosted the lower half of the window so you cannot see anything out of the window. They may as well have bricked it up! Bathroom was clean but old and tired. Shower difficult to use and no power.

Service at reception was slow but friendly, no free wifi (get with it Millenium!), reception area dirty during the day, restaurant food and service great except for the welcome at the door where the man was concentrating on highlighting his tiny chart of seating plans rather than welcome his guests!

Come on Millenium, this hotel needs a rocket. It needs refurbishment and someone to manage the teams and get them to deliver a modern and efficient service. You are killing your business and rely solely on the great location.

Will not stay here ever again unless there is a serious refurb!

Finally 103 should be closed...... This room is like a prison cell.

Room Tip: Avoid 103 and 105 whatever you do!

Was booked in for two nights just this last weekend. Very disappointed there was not a clean chair in any of the dinning area's to sit on, all were stained. So much so you did not even want to sit down. The bed and linen was clean. The whole hotel is badly in need of refurbishment, I certinly would not return unless this was done.
The food was average, nothing spectacular. We had access to the club lounge which 24hrs. You get free drinks from 5pm-7pm snacks = muffins in a packet or a packet of crisps.

We stayed for one night as we were seeing a show in Glasgow. The location of the hotel is perfect, being right on George Square and right beside Queen Street Station. But that is all this once excellent hotel really has going for it now.

The welcome we received was ok, although not particularly warm or friendly - the chap was just going through the motions. That said, as our room wasn't ready there was no problem leaving our bags while we went off to do some shopping. We returned a few hours later and were checked-in by a much more pleasant guy.

Our room faced George Square and was right at the end of the corridor, meaning we had double aspect windows which was great. The room was small, but functionable. Where the hotel really lets itself down is the upkeep of the rooms. The walls in our room were dirty, the bedside 'table' is a cheap piece of wood bolted to the wall (put me in mind of a cheap B&B in Blackpool). There was a strange smell and the furnitre was tired, tatty and well worn. The bathroom again was as clean as it could be given how old it was. More water leaked out the back of the tap than came out of the fawcett. That said, the bed was comofrtable and the sheets were clean. Towels were also lovely and fluffy

Breakfast was nothing special, although adequate. Food was luke warm at best and the quality of the offering was ok, although not as good as I would have expected

We got a good deal on this hotel, and the location is great. If I had paid anymore and was staying any longer - I probably would have asked for my money back and gone elsewhere. There are much better 4* hotels close by, that might be a little more expensive - but are definitely worth the extra. Even the Mercure (3*) around the corner is much better

Noisy room due to proximity to queen street. This could be fixed with dent windows, but on the positive very spacious. I especially like the walk in wardrobe. I have stayed in hotels with bathrooms this size. I won't be staying here again due to the noise and decode. It needs modernisation to compete in the area, wifi is rural at best!

We found the staff to be very efficient, particularly Raymond! It is definitely worth making sure you have a room overlooking George Square (we had a club room), we enjoyed watching the activity. Only drawback is noise at night if you like your window open. Beds were comfy and room clean, though decor a bit tired. Large bathroom and good shower over bath.
Other than the scrambled eggs, breakfast was excellent. I think you can order a fried egg!
Having easy access to Queen Street station and the car park behind the hotel was a bonus( £10 for 24 hours). As we were in Glasgow to see the main attractions it was handy to be next to the ''hop on hop off '' open top tour bus. We made good use of it for 4 days. Jamie Oliver's Italian restaurant is across the square, we ate there twice and it is excellent with charming staff.
In total we stayed at the hotel for 6 nights - for the deal we had it was good value. The location was an important factor for this particular trip.

Room Tip: We had room 316 about middle of hotel if you want a good view.

Checking in took a bit of time, the room was alright it did overlook George square and was a little noisy at times with late night wanderers and traffic noise. The shower was freezing! and the bathroom was cold with no way of heating it! Breakfast was ok good idea to book your breakfast on your arrival if you have not done so, as will cost nearly £14.00 if not booked in advance. Overall it was a not so great stay! This is the last time I use Millennium hotels for a stay!

I was at a business working lunch on Saturday 4th October with two other colleagues. We are all lecturing staff in the Hospitality Industry working in Further Education Colleges and our background is in Professional cookery and Hospitality. Together we have over 120 years experience in the hospitality industry.
We were served "lunch" in the boardroom, soup and sandwiches, paid for by SQA.
Poor is an understatement. We had coffee at 10am the next change of cups was at 12.30pm. The coffe flask was filthy and erquired to be polished. Our sandwiches arrived with no garnish, no sideplates and no napkins. Our soup plates were cold and dusty and the soup was poured from.....a plastic Fosters Lager beer jug.

Come on Millenium, i know it was a working business lunch but service? Standards? Scottish Hospitality. Shocking.
