“Just the job for a long weekend in Glasgow”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We (my husband and I) stayed here for 3 nights prior to a week on the Isle of Mull - I wanted to go and see as much as I could of Macintosh and the Glasgow Boys. We chose this hotel because we had been very pleased with our stays in Premier Inns on earlier jaunts, and this one had easy free parking. Initially my husband was surprised to find we were staying in the Gorbals, but in fact it was an ideal location for walking into the city centre, from where I used the opentop tour bus to visit most of my list of attractions. (Pound off voucher available from hotel) Breakfast was excellent as usual, although I would have liked some smoked fish on the menu! We also ate in twice in the evening - good value, tasty food. Only gripe is that you have to pay for wifi. We heard the muezzin from the Islamic Centre nearby on the first evening, and we worried that we would have an Istanbul experience, but in fact our sleep was never disturbed. Highly recommended if you want value for money and a comfy bed.

Room Tip: Our room faced the road and wasn't noisy, but you do have to have the windows closed - and there...

Decent enough hotel. The receptionist was very helpful, even provided us with a map to get to the SSE hydro.

The room was very clean and the bed was surprisingly very comfortable. The free parking is an added bonus.

Plenty to choose from for breakfast. I would actually use this premier inn again.

We stayed here for two nights over a weekend in May 2014. We chose this Glasgow Premier Inn because we were arriving by car and being able to park on site for free was advantageous.

The hotel was being refurbished at the time we stayed, so the main reception (which looked impressive) was out of action and we checked in at a temporary small desk near the restaurant/bar. We then had to make our way through a fire door as the temporary entrance to the main hotel where our room was located. While none of this had a significant impact on our stay, it was unexpected and slightly disruptive.

The room and bathroom were up to the Premier Inn's usual high standard; immaculately clean, comfortable bed, simple functional furniture, powerful shower with plenty of hot water, good TV etc.

We were happy with our stay given the rate we paid. I don't know if this took into account the planned disruption, but had we not got such a good rate I would have expected to be compensated for this.

If we were driving to Glasgow in future, we would stay here again.

As part of a trip to walk the West Highland Way, our school booked us at the Premier Inn City Centre South for the first night before we set off for the hike. All in all, a really good hotel! The rooms were very comfortable, the food was great and the breakfast was amazing! The staff were very friendly as well. Wi-Fi was reasonable too, 3 pounds for 24 hours which was excellent. Overall, a very good stay and a great first night in Scotland.

Premier Inn Glasgow City centre south is a modern well positioned building with its own car park which was so convenient. The check in at the start of our stay proved to be a stressful ordeal as we had expected to have our four rooms close together and one of them to be a disabled room for one of our group. The outcome was no disabled rooms were available and we had our rooms scattered around the building. However to be fair our stay was enjoyable the breakfasts are lovely and the staff very friendly. I would say that the beds rate as the most comfortable ones you'll find in any hotel
