My sister and I stay at this lovely hotel twice a year. The staff are great and friendly and the hotel is always clean and our rooms immaculate and a very tasty breakfast too. On this stay we got an upgrade and Iain was a star and carried our luggage. A great find and always a pleasure.

Booked two rooms for two nights. Price was right, and you get what you pay for. Nothing fancy. No elevator (that I saw) most rooms on bottom level - so down a flight of stairs. Small rooms with twin beds. Small bathroom. More like a B and B than hotel. Location was great. Right near university and plenty of restaurants/bars... More

we are glad you took time to review your stay with us, your feedback will be passed onto our hotel staff. There is no elevator in the hotel and rightly said, most of the rooms are downstairs, our room sizes meet the requirements for a 3 star rating, our location is very good for the best of the west end...

The room was okay, the breakfast was okay. Hotel had a musty smell throughout. Plumbing was noisy. Best thing about this hotel was the location for pubs, clubs the hydro. Would say it was bit overpriced compared to other hotels of the same standard.
