“Reception/facilities 4*.... rooms 3*”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

My husband, 4yr old son and I stayed here for one night in August, upon arrival we found it very strange that it was attached to an NHS hospital, however once you get to the reception desk you'd never know. The staff on reception were lovely, very chatty and helpful... nothing too much trouble. We stayed on the 4th floor, the room was clean but very tired in decor... there was chips off the furniture, scratches all over the glass table, a couple of large stains on the carpet and a floor lamp that reminded me that we were in a hotel owned by the NHS.
We had some food in the lounge bar, it was lovely and the staff were great and worked very hard. There was a wedding on and my only fault is that I felt like I was in between the guests quite a lot of the time, at one point I was in the toilets with the bride, whilst in my travelling comfy's. I felt a bit like a was gatecrashing these peoples special day, there wasn't enough separation between hotel guests and wedding guests. I felt like I had to wolf my dinner and get back to my room.
The hotel offers complimentary use of the pool and gym, we didn't use these but its a nice option to have.

We stayed here shortly after the Commonwealth Games, and was really suprised by the attentiveness of the staff and the overall quality of the hotel. Our room was spacious, clean and the bed was huge and extremely comftable. The facilities were also excellent; we had an Apple imac in our room and made use of the swimming pool and sauna/steam rooms. We've stayed in some expensive hotels in the past, some of which were no where near as good as this, and In terms of value for money, this has to be one of the best hotels around.

My partner and I stayed here for one night whilst visiting relatives in the area. Check in staff were very nice and we were impressed with the overall quality and style of the hotel. Our room was large and very nice as was the huge bathroom. Really nice having the i-mac in the room and the very quick free wifi. At 7am in the morning the fire alarm went off and the staff did a great job in getting all guests out and keeping us informed in what was going on. It was a false alarm and we were quickly all back inside again after the fire brigade gave it the all clear. Nice touch was the letter delivered to all rooms from the manager, apologizing for any inconvenience.

My company has an office in Paisley so I am up in Scotland every couple of weeks. I have stayed in a number of hotels in the area, however this hotel offers more than most.

It is located in half of the Hospital building and includes a Gym and Swimming Pool/sauna which is free to use from guests. It also has large comfortable rooms, a bar and a restaurant.

Good points:
Helpful staff
Easy to access/large car park
Big comfortable rooms
Gym/Pool
Excellent late deal rates
Breakfast, choice and quality

Bad points:
Is near a large Sewerage works (it's my industry so doesn't bother me, but may bother some, although it's never really bad)
Restaurants are a little expensive, although food is good.
Usual rates are a lot higher than discount rates.

Overall, I use this hotel whenever there are discounts, but use others if it's full price. 4.5

Stayed here for 11 nights during the Commonwealth Games. Had high expectations with both the price we had to pay and the 4 star rating. We were a bit concerned as the approach to the hotel from the main road is also the approach to an industrial estate. Alarm bells started to ring. However, once you turn the corner you're greeted by a huge expanse of lawn, large car park, fountain and the Clyde running along the back of the hotel. The price, at about a third higher than the normal rate for the time of year, was not entirely unexpected considering the shortage of hotel rooms in Glasgow during the Games, but was still a lot of money for what we got.

We had a twin room on Floor 3, overlooking the Clyde towards Glasgow, as we had requested, but the room had definitely seen better days. Two nights in and we had had enough, so asked at Reception if any other rooms were available. The Receptionist seemed quite taken aback when I reeled off a long list of faults with the room. An old and lumpy mattress, doors and drawers that didn't open properly, furniture with chipped edges and bits missing, a badly torn settee, stained tiles and rust streaks in the shower, the soap/towel holder in the shower that was more rust than chrome, a stained carpet and even someone’s initials scratched into the top of the dressing table. She was very apologetic and set about trying to find us another room, saying she would do what she could particularly as we had booked for a much longer stay than most of their guests.

We didn’t hold out much hope as they had already said the hotel was very busy, but luckily another room had just been prepared and was free. What a difference. Still the same nice view of the Clyde but in the other direction. Although not entirely fault free it was obvious this room had had a makeover at some point. Completly different and new looking bathroom, a new settee and a decent mattress. Still the same poor quality furniture with drawers that didn’t fit properly though but in better condition. No fridge in this room though, which in some way was a bonus, as the one in the first room put out so much waste heat into the room we had the window open all the time. Also having looked into some other rooms as they were being cleaned, they are kept very clean but it just seems a shame that they don't seem able to stand up to the wear and tear.

Tried a meal in the main restaurant. Nice food, not too expensive but the room itself is quite dark and has no windows to enjoy the river view. No real atmosphere either as we shared the restaurant with only one other person. There is an alternative “restaurant” which is really just an open area off the lounge bar. Simpler menu but much nicer view through the picture windows, so you could see the patio and the river but it does get a bit noisy due to the number of people and the televisions in the bar itself. Reasonably priced food though, as were the prices in the bar.

Having read some of the other recent comments we began to wonder if we had actually stayed at the same hotel. Yes, it is attached to a hospital, which means you may end up with a room facing one in the hospital which does seem odd and you may have the air ambulance land a couple of times. Certainly no antiseptic hospital smell nor did we ever see anyone in uniform or hospital scrubs during our entire stay. Then again, there are two entrances to the complex and we followed the direction signs and used the entrance that clearly said Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre and not Golden Jubilee Hospital.

Full “Scottish Breakfast”, no different to a full English really and no haggis as we’ve had before. It could be a bit haphazard if you ordered any of the “extras” like poached eggs. Sometime they would arrive so quickly you would still be eating your cereal, at other times it was a long wait. Sometimes your tea and toast arrived together, at other times a long way apart or not at all, until you asked. There was always an apology but such basic things shouldn’t really happen.

Would we stay here again? Probably not. It is really a business hotel not one for a family getaway or a romantic weekend away. It was handy for the airport and the trains and buses into the city centre but it is a bit isolated. It served its purpose for our stay and was comfortable enough but was lacking something. 4 star for its facilities like the gym, sauna, pool, Spa and conference rooms but if our first room was anything to go by, not 4 star standard for the rooms. We have stayed at much cheaper Premier Inns that had rooms in better condition. It is a nice setting with a large patio and gardens at the back overlooking the Clyde, so you could sit outside and enjoy a drink, watch the boats go by and enjoy the view as the sun went down.

The staff could not have been nicer from the duty manager who got us a replacement iMac for the room as we couldn’t get it to pick up BBC iPlayer or the staff who often seemed rushed off their feet at breakfast and particularly Melissa on Reception who found us our new room and offered to help us pack and move. The Reception staff were always smiling and very helpful with directions and information and would always be asking if we’d had a good a day or what we were going to see next. So many thanks to them for a very nice stay.

Room Tip: Tips. The superior rooms (King Rooms and Suites) usually come with a river view but so do some of...
