Spent a couple of nights here earlier this month as part of my fact finding tour around the British Isles as I like Glasgow.
I am learning with Trip Advisor that the exceptional places are those where everybody or almost everybody thinks a place is great, the bad are those where everybody thinks the opposite (eg. certain run down branches of a well known cheapish national chain) and the rest (often the majority) are those where some say the place is excellent and others terrible. Logically the latter makes no sense - how can places be terrible and excellent ??? Part of the answer of course is that if a place has say 20 rooms no guest stays in all of them and they will differ.

Firstly, the Georgian House is close to inner central Glasgow and though access to its rear courtyard car-park is tight (host directs on first arrival) , for this kind of location in an over 1 million plus city, such secure off-road parking is really rare and translates into money and or time saved (a lot of it from my experience of previous trips to the City). The location is also 2 minutes walk from the circle tube whisking you to the centre and is in upmarket West Glasgow. Of course these Georgian Houses set up and back from the busy road will be more noisy than the kind of rural place I originally booked but that was 9 miles from the centre (thus no good for night life). So yes the place isn't double glazed, traffic only winds down before midnight and starts up again around 7 so don't expect a lie in if in a room at the front of the building. (I always travel everywhere with ear plugs anyway so rarely have problems). Comments have been made about 1 or more of the mattresses needing replacing - I can only speak about my single room and can confirm it badly needed replacing and was uncomfortable - if booking this room suggest checking this with hotel first. Breakfast is not cooked or greatly inspiring (a few boiled eggs wouldn't go amiss) but its OK/decent and there is fruit. The bathroom was very small (think Travelodge, Etap etc. ) so don't expect to swing your arms about you however you do have complimentary WIFI access (an absolute must ) and it works.


So where does this leave us with this apparently excellent terrible place ??? Conclusion - excellent location, secure off-road parking, free WIFI and breakfast and bargain at under £40 compared to comparables - close to busy road (which owner like the other hotels stretched along the road can scarcely do much about) but comfort could be improved by replacing any mattress(es) past their useful life !

Finally a comment to owner - socket in my room was very loose behind chest of drawers (necessary for laptop/hairdryer etc. connection). Luckily because we are NOT in the US and thankfully don't have their litigious mentality, people are unlikely to make a fuss - however as a landlord, I would be unhappy with this (for my own self preservation)- therefore cover needs to be removed, box cemented in , surround retarted up etc. (easy job over 24 hours- have done such things myself). To people reading this by the time you stay in this place such glitches will probably have been addressed.

Room Tip: Any questions/issues check in advance - host is friendly.

Great hotel made better by the host. Rooms a little bit "tired", but area and location made up for that.
10am checkout VERY early though, and check-in pretty late at 4pm.
All in all, I would recommend.

My brother and I needed a place to stay in Glasgow for one night and the stay was so enjoyable that we decided to extend our stay to 4 days. Excellent host and great facilities.

Room Tip: Book online. It's easy and the price is great.
