Visiting Glasgow for Hogmanay. The hotel is in a great location for the city centre and the car park opposite is very convenient (using the postcode for Theatre Sq car park seemed to indicate that it was a 0.4mile walk from the hotel rather than just across the road!).
The reception staff were very efficient, friendly and helpful and the place is very well kept. Great value for money.
Biggish niggle - only one powerpoint apart from TV in our room and we had to hunt that down (hidden under the table). I did notice after we had been there a day that there was a notice in reception saying we could ask for an extension lead which might have helped but the notice itself was not on clear display.
Just a couple of smaller niggles also mentioned by others - the breakfast room is very tight for space for the number of people using it BUT the waiting staff were highly efficient at clearing the tables and stocking up the food. The choice of food was very good I thought & I didn't miss bacon (though I am veggie!).
The lifts are a pain - small, slow and a bit temperamental. I used the stairs most of the time.
Overall though, I would highly recommend this hotel which was just what we needed for our stay in Glasgow.
