The used towels got changed daily, the TV with freeview channels had a good reception. Wifi had a good signal and...

After staying often in the budget hotels in the area we decided to give McLays Guest House a try instead, we were not disappointed and the previous reviews were correct. this is a very good alternative to the budget hotels you will not be disappointed if you chose to stay here. we will definitely stay there again when visiting Glasgow.

I have stayed here many times when meeting friends in Glasgow. It is very handy for the shops bars train stations etc. The hotel is exactly what it says - no frills. The rooms are very tired in places but spotlessly clean with everything you could need - tea/ coffee soap shampoo etc. The beds are so comfortable and the...

The guesthouse is conveniently located at a 15 minute walk from Queen Street Station and the bus station. The main pedestrian area is also within quite easy reach. The street is not busy, and the price I got was quite fair. Even though my flight was delayed by several hours and I eventually got there at past 2 AM, I...

Have to say had no complaints about our stay here! The room was spacious and we got a bath which we didn't expect! The bed was also comfortable so a real plus! The hotel is a few minutes walk to the city centre and sauchiehall street. The real bonus was the excellent breakfast! One thing that seems to be dieing...

Clean room, nice bathroom amenities, free WiFi, good price. Breakfast included in the price and highly recommended, very delicious traditional Scottish breakfast served and many other items on the rich buffet. Good location. Maybe rooms could be refurbished, but still it was all what we needed for an overnight stay.

We booked a twin bed room with a shared bathroom at McLays, and I doubt we could have picked a better place. The guest house offered much better services than you would expect for the tariff here. To begin with, it was absolutely clean -- even the shared bathroom. I read in a review here a scathing remark about the...

I stayed here with a friend and was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. It is good value for money. My room was spacious with a comfortable bed and spotless bathroom, but it was a bit of a climb up three flights of stairs. Breakfast was excellent, with a good variety of cooked food and quick service. The waitresses...
