“Overnight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

What a lovely welcome we got from Jackie on arrival - makes such a difference after an early morning journey. Our room on the first floor, as requested, was very clean and comfortable complete with all our needs. The fridge is a welcome extra - maybe a small bottle of water would be a welcome addition as often that's the one thing missing during the night! Breakfast was delicious, freshly cooked on order, and well worth paying the little extra. The Hotel is in an excellent location, a few minutes from the underground. It is also beside lovely river walks both to the Botanic gardens and to the Kelvingrove museum and art gallery, which we would highly recommend for an afternoon.

Room Tip: Ask for your floor preference

Had a very pleasant three days here. Jackie was terrific - very welcoming, friendly and helpful. My room (5, I think) on the first floor was a reasonable size for a single, as was the en-suite. A nice touch to have a fridge, even if it was slightly hard to access. Bed very comfy.
The location is excellent, as others have said, and the coupon parking arrangement in the street is welcome - £4 for the day.
Breakfast was very good - my only slight quibble was that the furnishings made it feel a little bit like a canteen. But on the other hand, it was a plus to have this public space to sit in in the evening, and even better for it to have a licence!
The free internet access in the hallway was very welcome.
I paid £61 per night for a single room. Whether that is value for money I am not sure having very little to compare it with.

A modest comfortable hotel in an excellent location by the River Kelvin, convenient for walking to Kelvingrove, the Botanic Gardens and Oran Mor, and for subway and buses to the city centre. Staff were very friendly and helpful; breakfast was at least adequate. We were on the ground floor - the stairs looked as though they might be a bit difficult for people with bulky luggage. We definitely enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty with stairs, there are ground floor rooms.

We chose this place for it's convenience and price. It's hell to find by car and map because the streets of this town are so poorly marked. But it is a short walk to Kelvinbridge Underground station.

Breakfast was adequate at best. I asked for fried eggs and got one. Hot drinks come out of a machine which spews it acrid juice out of the same little tube.

The room was nice. Staff was friendly and accomodating. They were the best part of the stay.

Room Tip: Try getting a room on the lower floor. The stairs are steep and narrow at spots.

Stayed here for 3 nights in room 2 on 25th 26th and 27th July. Hotel is small and very quiet as a river and the park are just across the street. This hotel is so handy as a 2 minute walk across the street is Kelvinbridge sub Station which offers transport across glasgow city. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and a small drinks bar is available until 10.30pm. Convienent to may good restaurants on Gt Western Road which is just around the corner. Mellis cheesemongers is a 5 minute walk away as is Roots and Fruits an excellent fruit and veg shop with a Wholefood shop next door. Fridge in hotel bedroom is a great idea also.Would love to return to this hotel again. Thank you. Harkin family
