I have stayed in quite a few hotels in Glasgow due to having family all around the city and being a Rangers supporter. Mostly I stay at the Travelodge on the Paisley Road mainly due to it being cheap, it is around the corner from my grandfather's house and is walk-able distance to Ibrox. I am certain I won't be staying there again as this brand new Premier Inn is perfect.
The hotel is immaculate, beds guarantee a good night sleep and the staff are great. We arrived on a Saturday for a one night stay for the Rugby Sevens and the hotel as you may imagine was extremely busy with people checking in and out. On our arrival there was quite a few people waiting to be seen to check in/out but Michelle (who was on her own) did not seem flustered at all and dealt with everyone in a very welcoming fashion and continually apologised for the wait which wasn't too long. She is certainly a great asset to the hotel as many people have praised her in their reviews and from experience it is no surprise to why she is so highly regarded.
For any Rangers fans or anyone attending a game at Ibrox and needing a place to stay this hotel I would strongly recommend. The stadium is in viewing distance and is only a 10-15 minute walk at most. The location is also good for families with the Science Centre and Imax Cinema only a couple of hundred metres away next to the BBC Scotland building.
The only issue I have with this hotel is that there isn't a shop close by so all there is for food and drink is the restaurant or the vending machines. However, we never ate in the restaurant so i couldn't comment on the quality of food but i'm sure it will be to a reasonable if not good standard. Also the price for one nights stay was a little expensive but that was expected with it being a Saturday night and during the Commonwealth Games. Although I have to admit it was money well spent for a top quality hotel.
