Cant complain for the price. So there was a cracked tile and a scuff mark or two on the walls but the painters were in decorating and hadn't got to our room yet. Warm, dry and a good nights sleep with a good buffet breakfast. A two minute walk from Glasgow central. We would stay again.

Dont expect the world of this hotel and you wont be disappointed. Cheap but not really chearful. Girl on reception nice and friendly and good central location. Room was in the attic with a tiny cheap double bed and no mattress protector but clean sheets. Horrid suspect carpet stain and unconnected sink waste in tiny bathroom. Free water was a...

This isn't a 3 star hotel. Room really dated, smelled of smoke. The windows were really old, drafts and let in all the noise from outside. I left after 30mins. I found another hotel 10 mins walk away that was also a 3 star hotel, it the difference was like night and day.

Nothing fancy about this place . It has clean rooms and bathrooms and an amazing choice at the self service breakfast . The staff process you efficiently and if you are just looking for a central location for a sleep and breakfast this is worth it

Visited Glasgow for couple of days in December. Booked hotel in advance for it's reasonable pricing and great location. Just min from Airport shuttle station. 2 min from central station and city center and short walking distance from SSE Hydro along the river. Breakfast was good, service was friendly. Will choose this hotel again next time I'm in Glasgow

Recently back from this hotel , and thought I would add a review to let customers know what to expect. Reception very helpful and no trouble assisting you or ordering taxis for you. Rooms basic but clean and bathroom clean, bit noisy with traffic and some fan or air conditioning nearby, and pigeons loved cooing in morning on window sill...

Stayed here last night, as part of a Valentines day treat. Room was huge, with 2 double beds, and was very comfortable, if a bit too warm, but, heating turned down, perfect! Breakfast was not up to their usual standard. Overcooked, brick hard eggs, bacon swimming in grease, proved very unappetising to me. A sausage, which was fine, couple potato...

Couple of nights B&B for an event at the Hydro. Well situated close to Central Station and walkable to Hydro and rest of city centre. Retains some old world charm though the flip side of this coin is that it's in need of some TLC. Good sized room and large bathroom though no heating in the bathroom and ill-fitting window...

Stayed here on Sunday night. It's good value with a good clean warm room with a very comfy bed. Great breakfast in the morning. Staff were nice and room was great for our needs.. What more do you want for the money? Cheap as chips no frills but great value l would definitely recommend..
