“the review!?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2011

it was the fact of the rooms were so small, my friend was needing a shower, and i had to hide in the toilet as there was no other way, because there was actaully not a cubicle for the shower/toilet. the bed was extremely uncomfy, and there didnt seem like there necessary pieces we needed - such as a kettle, extra toilet roll, a half decent cup, half decent so on.

Worst place I've ever stayed! Much further from town for easy access. Security staff at night time were truly awful and very rude! We got made to leave and 2am simply for 1 extra person sitting in our room quitely (1 of our guests were asleep so clearly demonstrates that we were quiet) we sat outside for 3 hours, with the security men continuing to come down and speak for them to tell us if we paid £50 we could get back in! Then at 5.30 they said we could just go back in- so they made us sit out in the rain for over 3 hours for NO reason! They even called the police who told me themselves that they had no idea why they had been called and why we had been asked to leave!
So rude and would NEVER stay there again- even if they were paying me!! definately not recommended!

we stayed here for the first time last november as the usual places we stay were all booked up due to football, i dont think we would use it again. its clean but very basic sort of like a kids ikea bedroom, double bed with bunk on top :/
we got back around 1`am and the noise in the hotel continued until at least 5am! we didnt have breakfast at the hotel so i cannot comment
if you want somewhere cheap its fine, but be prepared not to get much sleep as i get the impression its used as a cheap sleeep over for hen/stag weekends and football fans

Thank you for your kind comments. We are working on to find more efficient security supervision during the night in the future. Despite this we appreciate that according to your assessment the hotel is clean, the service was nice and all together it is valuable.

Clean, basic and very cheap. Friendly and helpful staff. Location central across the river Clyde with restaurants just outside the door. Quick taxi service. The bed were not the most comfortable and the pillows like rocks, but with a double bed and a bunk, three people could sleep for £10 each

This hotel was excellent value for money, although i dont think i would return again. It was very cheap for the 2 nights at £26pp. The rooms where small, with one double bed and a bunk above.the only problem i had was the shower opened out into the room, so you wouldnt need to be shy. the hotel was perfect for our hen party.plenty of restaurants around and a casino and a large free car park. the hotel is just a short taxi ride from the city centre. definately recommend to anyone looking for cheap basic friendly accommodation. Staff where helpful and friendly, we needed extra towels and this was no problem. there is a small cafe at reception providing tea, coffee, snacks and soft drinks.

We have come to visit glasgow many times from a distance and we like the free parking offered as we can travel around and also get buses, trains etc nearby. Very good budget accomodation, love design of shower part of room etc as clean and easy to work out. Staff always have been great. Security great too, feel safe. Simple booking system and can book in advance for concerts etc. Breakfasts great and access to snacks and cup of tea 24hrs, just ask at desk for a cup. Would recommend easily to other people-once you find the way there it is easy to remember how to get there again.
