We stayed for three nights in this interesting hotel. Various young members of staff were on hand at different times to provide assistance. Room 7 on the second floor was very comfortable, the only criticism being the absence of secondary glazing which meant that the noise of the traffic on the main road was quite noisy at times. The continental...

Edwardian styled Hotel on a vibrant street. loads of bars and restaurants. Perfect for a short stay and a spring board for Glasgow. Full of character, great staff. highly recommended. Very steep stairs!!

Stayed here for two nights in October 2016, I chose this hotel as it is very handy for Oran Mor where I was going to a concert. I had a single room on the second floor with a separate private bathroom on the third floor, the only fault with the room was that the shower struggled to get warm (I...

Thank you for your comments, I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I understand you issue with the shower in the private bathroom and this is something we are looking into. Due to the Victorian style of the building we are looking at the best way to ensure this problem is not reoccurring though it seems to be...

We stayed here on Saturday night (10th December) and I have to say we were very dissapointed. As per a similar review we had a room in the rafters and it certainly isn't one of the rooms that had been photographed to advertise the hotel!!! The old wooden sash windows in the bedroom and bathroom were rotten to the core,...

I apologise that you were unhappy at the experience you had at our hotel. The décor in the third floor rooms is different from the first and second floors however we do have pictures of these rooms on the website, the channels we advertise through and in our 360 degree google tour of the hotel. Unfortunately you have not seen...

Check in starts at 3PM, arrived at 12 midday and found my room ready and I was able to check in. I found the hotel staff to be very helpful and accommodating. The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. If you do not want to use taxis to travel around, you have an option of either the subway or...

Gosh, I wish I could write a nice review of this hotel but I was so disappointed with my stay. We booked here as friends were getting married at Oran Mor and the Hilton the wedding party stayed in was full. Upon check-in the receptionist confused our name with another guest, when I pointed it out she asked if we...

Lovely hotel recommended to us by a friend. Nice decor and rooms were very nice. Not much noise either considering its right on great western road. Great location for the west end bars restaurants and the underground at either byres road or great western road. Would recommend and stay again.

Great style, great area, great price, great service… great everything. If you’re looking to stay in the West End I think you can’t go wrong by staying here. I should mention that I didn’t have time to try the breakfast in the morning, so I can’t comment on that. The room layout was also exceptional. My only complaint is that...
