Just had an over night stay (Sunday night) at this hotel with my daughter, in town for Christmas shopping. Arrived early morning, and although room wasn't available, they held our luggage in a secure toom near reception. Front desk staff very welcoming and informative.

The room was compact but spotlessly clean, beds comfortable and free tea and coffee a nice touch. Shower room great, with free Scottish Fine soaps toiletries. We didn't try the free breakfast as we had made other plans, but would certainly stay here again and recommend to anyone looking for a budget break.

Nice place. In the city centre. Many restraints nearby. Close to railway station. Economical. Good WiFi. The breakfast is very good. The rooms are clean. The toileteries can be improved slightly. The rest of the bathroom is very good.

Had a one night stay here in June, it was just a case of having somewhere to sleep and have breakfast. The breakfast was ok but the 2 members of staff on duty were a little overwhelmed by the numbers in the dining room, and there were a couple of things that I had to ask to be replenished. Also the dining room was stiflingly hot.

I decided to walk to the hotel from Glasgow Central station, which took about 15 minutes and it's mostly uphill. I got a taxi to the station on departure which the receptionist kindly booked for me. On reflection, it would be better to get the taxi TO the hotel, and then have an easy 10 minute downhill walk to the station.

Room Tip: Don't make the mistake of walking into the Holiday Inn (NOT express) which is immediately adjace...

I stayed overnight here as a quick pit-stop while visiting Glasgow to see a concert and visit my family. On the whole, I found the hotel to be perfectly adequate for am overnight stay; the bed was very comfortable and immaculately made-up, and the service from all members of staff was very friendly, but there were a few details which make the place feel a little "Crossroads Motel"-like, and slightly tired around the edges. The decor in the rooms (I was in Room 352) feels very dated and a bit like something out of a late-'80s MFI catalogue.. No great crime in itself. but the desk was badly worn and chipped at the edges, a bent bolt was hanging out of an anonymous much-painted-over plate on the wall, and housekeeping had missed quite a lot of dusting around the TV area. To be fair, the bathroom was spotless, and well-supplied with toiletries. Breakfast? Hmm.. Again, the service was excellent; the ladies clearing the tables and ferrying the buffet-style food from the kitchen were very chatty and friendly, but the breakfast itself was a bit lack-lustre; OK if you just want a quick continental toast-&-croissants job, but the cooked options were just a little bit too basic. To sum up: £75 B&B: It did the job. The staff were great, from check-in to check-out, and it's a convenient place to stay for quick access to the city centre. A little bit of polish is all it would take to make this hotel excellent, but I have to say it's just a little overpriced for what you get. Thank you to all the staff, though, for a very comfortable stay.

Stayed here for 1 night and very impressed with staff welcome and we were allocated our room even though we arrived a couple of hours before check-in time. However, the room was very cold and heater did not appear to be working - we called down and eventually someone came and fixed it. Even though we put the heating off before retiring the room was so hot that we did not get a good night's sleep. Buffet breakfast was included but it was a very basic set up - the rolls were delicious. Coffee was dreadfully weak!!

I stayed at this hotel for one night whilst in Glasgow on business. I checked-in very late, but the staff were efficient and accomodating. The room was quite small and basic, but had all the necessary amenities. The breakfast buffet in the morning had a wide selection, and all the staff had smiles on their faces. Pleasant enough stay, and I'd have no problems coming back here.
