Was surprised at some of the very negative reviews. Arrived and was treated very well. Bit noisy when you have to go through bar and a local folk group rehearsing 8-) Was in small room at the top and back of hotel. Quiet and very comfortable. Clean. Food that night was excellent - enjoyed the chicken goujons/spicy sauce. Service prompt and welcoming.
Only real negative: They really don't 'get the concept of a continental breakfast 8-) Rather than croissants, rolls etc, lots of fruit and different juices, cereals and yoghurts...there was: a small pack of Alpen, two black bananas, some orange juice. The night porter provided two slices of cold toast and a coffee that reminded me that it's 'Scotland's Oil'.... and this was all on offer 0530-0900hrs. Cooked breakfast not available until 0900-1030hrs which is silly when most meetings for which people come to Glasgow start at 0900!
Recommendations: sort the breakfast. Have cooked from 0730 at least. Needs a much more wider range of things for a real continental breakfast.
Other than the breakfast I thought the hotel was fine; welcoming and I enjoyed staying here. I will be back at the end of May! (I'll bring my own croissants...)
