        • Couple
          5.0

          It was very convenient for shopping in the city centre.

          It was over priced for the room and service we got

        • Single
          7.4

          Decent location, just around the corner from Charring Cross Rail Station.Value for price was very good. Room was very clean and a decent size compared to some older uk hotels. About a 4 block walk (downhill) to the airport bus stop. Rooms at the rear are quiet. WiFi was good.

          No lift to upper floors and there are stairs from sidewalk to main floor, something to keep in mind if you have heavy luggage. It's on the western edge of downtown so a bit of a walk (if you are walking) to shopping / nightlife areas.

        • Family with children
          5.8

          Easy access to staff. Helpful info in front reception and room with regards to the area. Everything was nice, furniture, bathroom facilities etc.

          Rooms come in a wide range of sizes ours was one of the smallest. This was misleading in the representation of the accomodation. I saw another room that was at least 50% larger.

        • Older travelers
          4.6

          Location was very convenient. It was not the fault of the hotel that we had to be there on a Friday night and it was extremely noisy, both from other guests and an overhead helicopter.

          We never knew if breakfast was included - no-one offered any information and as my husband was feeling ill I didn't seek a member of staff to ascertain whether or not breakfast was included. We left as soon as we were dressed in the morning. The noise was absolutely horrendous during the night. Firstly there was a helicopter overhead for about half an hour at 1am, then the other guests in the next door room decided to have a small party in their room. We were totally miserable.

        • Single
          6.2

          Mattress was uncomfortably hard. Temperature of the room was too high. This meant that I had a very bad night's sleep.

        • Couple
          8.2

          Very central to all the shops etc in glasgow!

          we orderd a meal, the menu stated that the korma came with rice and a nan bread and it didnt :(

        • Couple
          7.4

          We wished to stay in the hotel for an extra night and this was easy enough and we were able to keep the same room.

          Room was extremely warm, fortunately we were able to get a fan but the pipes were hot to touch and a hazard for children as no warning was put up. Also the information book that was left out was not updated so prices and times for certain things in the hotel were incorrect eg latest time to call for room service.

        • Single
          6.2

          Cleanliness of rooms.

          The lack of personal hygiene of some members of staff -- cloth smelling strongly of sweat.

        • Single
          8.2

          Good facilities in room, nice spacious rooms which were well decorated.

          As we were in the basement next to the breakfast it was slightly noisy in the morning.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Very squeeky floorboards in corridor and could hear everybody in the morning walking passed our door. Did not like looking onto a stone wall. Lighting was'nt very bright.

        • Group of friends
          5.4

          Not very much. Whilst our room was ok, the other couple with us received appauling service.

          Staff very unhelpful. I woudl expect if I had water pouring through my bathroom ceiling at 5am from the room above that they would be able to do a bit more than say 'sorry'.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          It was quiet,well located near the city centre and not so big that it was impersonal.

          The room was rather small.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Very welcoming, with a nice though small room. Very clean and with good amenities

          Lack of parking. The city car park with whom the hotel had an arrangement was full and I aited 40 mins to find a place to parl.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          The fact that it was next to the Kings Theatre

          Just the location

        • Single
          7.8

          The windows had been left open so when I got there, the room was uncomfortably cold. I asked for the heating to be put on, which did not happen, and there was no extra blanket in my room. I requested one from reception which took 15 minutes to get to me, which, when I was cold, tired and waiting to go to sleep, was very frustrating!
