“A lovely weekend spoilt by the second night!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

We did not look at Trip advisor before booking but as the hotel was very cheap we were not expecting anything very special. We had a room overlooking the park which was lovely and the budget room was adequate - a chair would have been nice! We moved the bed a little so that we could access it from both sides which was an improvement and the first night was fine. The shower in the morning was scalding but in an old converted building perhaps that was to be anticipated. The second night was horrendous with unacceptable noise both inside and outside the building until about 4.30am. The noise from outside made us fear for our car as the parking was just along the kerbside but the inside revellers made both my husband and I feel quite anxious as they shouted and cursed, banging on both our door and other doors along the corridor. With a three hundred mile journey home the following day, the lack of sleep was not helpful. Glasgow is such a wonderful city we were saddened that our accommodation was so disappointing.

Room Tip: Overlooking the park was ok but as a consequence we had to endure noise from the street.

I am really happy wih this hotel! The staff was kind our room was good and they have been really helpful with everything!
The hotel is a bit out of the city center but it's only 5 minutes with a taxi ( around 5 pounds ).
And the area is really quite and there is a really nice park!

You get what you pay for, the staff are really friendly and helpful. The location is brilliant with on street parking in a nice area and a great aprk over the road. They leave breakfast outside the room in a bag which I did not eat cos I don.t drink milk but it is a bonus if you like cereal.
The room was comfortable needed a lick of paint though and the beds were really comfortable with crisp white sheets. Shower room was a bit shabby. The place could do with an overhaul re decoration but for £30 I do not expect the Ritz. It was good enough for me to book and extra night so it must have been pretty good. 15 mins drive to Glasgow and Queens Park station is 2 mins away if you prefer th

Room Tip: Ask for a low room the stirs looked a nightmare.

We arrived to this hotel late in the evening on the 13th of august. Exhausted by our day trip, we were delighted to get to the hotel and finally have a rest... but... at our arrival the the guy at the reception informed us that our reservation (made a month 1/2 earlier) was no longer and that their banking company had refused my payment! Why would this happen on the same day of our arrival stays a mystery.. The guy told me that his colleague tried to contact me the whole day, but I haven't received a single phone call, and a week later I saw on my mailbox (in the spams section!) a mail kindly telling: Good afternoon we have tried to get in touch with you regarding payment, I’m afraid your payment hasn't been authorized. So I’m afraid we can’t hold on to this room any longer." How can the payment not be authorized since I had paid the 10 % deposit a month ago! We were left after midnight without a bed to sleep on... fortunately I did not give up that easily and the guy told that he was going to check if there was some room left in the other hotels in the center. I booked the next night in the Queens Park hotel, and we spend the night in St Enoch hostel (which brings us to an other review), me in a shared female dorm and my mum and brother in a double room. This was a terrible night for us, but I have to admit that the guy at the reception was actually really kind and helpful. Otherwise the night we spent, in Queens Park was great, the room was big and mostly clean (a triple ensuite).

Located in what appears to be a rough area of town. Website states they have free parking but in reality there is no parking included with the hotel it is at your own risk in the street. The rooms are tattered and the bed linens smell like the worst cheesy feet! As the door doesn't lock properly twice in the space of our 20 hour stay we were walked in on. Unfortunately to top all that off the staff don't seem to know when check out is so after having been advised it was 11:30 we were rudely thrown out at 11 by a scruffy man who barely spoke English.

what should we say!? It was horrible... to expensive for nothing... the shower was not working, the breakfast was ridiculous (a pack of cornflakes laid in front of the room door), it was loud (a street in front and a loud ventilation) and the staff was completely unkind. DO NOT BOOK A ROOM IN THIS HOTEL!

Was delighted to get tickets for the Robbie Williams concert at Hampden Park on 25th June for myself, a friend and our two daughters. So in November I booked a family room in this hotel so we could walk back after the concert (had previously been to a concert at Hampden and knew what a nightmare it is to get back to the city centre afterwards). Realised this would be more a hostel than a hotel but the location was more important. Booked through Laterooms.com and secured a room for £95 with the payment due on arrival. We live in the Highlands and had our train tickets booked and were really looking forward to our trip. The day before our reservation I received an email from Lesley at the hotel informing me the card used to make the booking had declined (my bank had issued another card since I made the booking) and my booking was cancelled. On receiving the email I immediately phoned Lesley who would not take another card payment over the phone as the room had already been relet (within 2 hours of her sending me the email). In turmoil I contacted Laterooms who also contacted the hotel on my behalf as it was totally unreasonable to cancel my reservation without first discussing it with me. The best they could do (and only because Laterooms had got involved) was offer a room at their 'sister hotel' the St Enoch in Glasgow city centre. Bearing in mind when I first made the booking I could have chosen any hotel in the city centre and with the very poor customer service I had received I really didn't want to take this option but with everywhere in Glasgow booked and The Queens Park Hotel refusing to honour our confirmed booking I had little choice and had to book there instead. OMG! I will have to post a separate review for that experience! So take my advice and don't think an online confirmed booking with payment due on arrival will be honoured.
