We booked in to this hotel for a 1 night stay as we were attending a wedding in the westend of Glasgow. There were plenty of hotels to choose from but we thought lets push the boat out and book in to "the Hilton" a little bit of luxury!!! We opted for a delux double room at a cost of £119 bed only instead of the double standard at £99 bed only. When we checked in we were offered breakfast at a cost of £7:50 each, which we took as breakfast is served to 11 on a Sunday, so still the chance of a decent long lie. Room 144 situated on the 1st floor over looking Great Weastern Road and Byres Road, nicely decorated in light shades of grey, room windows were really manky, and single glazed, the noise of heavy traffic was none stop. The room also have a couple of minor problems one leg of the computer chair was thick with dust, one robe in the room when 2 guests staying.
We went to the wedding and on arrival back to the hotel we were looking forward to bed, phew we went out like a light despite the traffic still being heavy at 1:30am. I was woke at 3:30 with a alarm going off, don't know if it was the bar below closing or what but boy it was loud, it only lasted a few mins and I drifted back to sleep. 4:35am abruptly woke with bin lorry tipping empty bottles in to truck outside window... I must say at this point the windows were shut!!!!!!!! 6:00am I woke too hot and thought I'd open the 3 windows (how much more noisy could it get)? But this prove to be a challenging task on little sleep, 2 of the windows were locked, which I could not open and the 3rd could open but had no latch to keep it open..... I opted to jamming my shoe in the frame to keep it open!!!!! Luxury????? I should have got a taxi home I was thinking at this point!!!!! As I'm a Glaswegian and only stay south side!!!! But hey this was ment to be time me and my partner could enjoy just the 2of us..... 7:45 woke up with loud music playing. We'd had enough, we got up showered and down for breakfast, the girl that greeted us, was not expecting us as we were not all inclusive, we explained we were asked on arrival that we were offered the £7:50 breakfast. We couldn't fault the breakfast at all buffet style, a good selection of fruit, cereal pastries muffins and a cooked breakfast, lacked 2 things tomato juice and a smile from staff!!!!!
If we were to pay what we thought the room was worth we'd say £70pn.
We both agree we would not go back. Not good value for money.
