Celebrating 50th

Hotel was excellent. We had previously stayed there for my partners 40th and visited again, this time for his 50th with two other couples. We ate in the windows restaurant and all had fish and chips, cooked perfectly. The staff were very attentive and helpful. Some small criticisms. The hotel was a little busier that I expected so it was difficult to get any seating within the executive lounge at times. The decanters in the room had very little in them. I seem to recall them being much fuller before. (This on behalf of our guests, since we didn't use). The offer of drinks vouchers for Waxy's, we were told was discontinued. The furniture in the room had missing handles, (two, although I found one and re-attached). We booked three club rooms, however it appeared that our room was significantly smaller than that of our guests. That being said none of the above could possibly spoil our enjoyment. This really is a fantastic place to stay. The beds were comfortable, the restaurant is lovely and you couldn't be more centrally located. I don't think we'll wait another ten years before returning and would recommend to anyone.

Welcome was really nice. A bit of banter and very informative. Left bags in a safe room as we were far too early for check-in. Free mini bar in the room with spirits in cut glass decanters. How often do you get that? Breakfast restaurant had great rooftop views and catered for all tastes. From traditional Scottish square sausage to raspberry and White chocolate muffins. Again the staff were brill.

We arrived by train and took less than10 mins. To walk to hotel. We arrived early, but the staff allowed us to leave our cases. The reception staff were excellent, room very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was varied, hot and tasty served by very attentive staff. Would use this hotel again and recommend to friends.

Nice place to stay in a very convenient and happening location

- Good room space offered in the Club Rooms - Nice range of Complimentary Drinks found in the room - Spacious and Comfortable Club Lounge at the top of the Hotel - Bigger TV would have better suited to the spacious Club Rooms - Bed seems to be already soft in the middle due to prolonged use

excellect stay

The location is wonderful ... city center next to the underground and station, short walk to buses and all kinds of eating. We did not use the hotel restaurant, so no comment possible. Room small but impeccably fitted out, though the only view was of a narrow atrium within the building, and when the window was opened there was a droning noise from machinery above. Would definitely stay here again.

Not bad...

Overall, the hotel is ok. I could recommend it. Pros Great Location (near George Square) Free Internet Free Minibar Clean Quick Check-in/Check-Out Helpful with Glasgow information and assisted in having a car take us to the airport (helpful staff). Cons Tub was, well... weird. The way it turned on/off regarding the shower was unusual, and the tub was slippery. No rubber mat for the tub either. The room was simple with strange decour. Honestly felt more like a three star hotel to me.

Better options elsewhere

Food was bad. Check-in was chaotic. Room on first floor with lots of street noise. Lounge was worthless at $50 per night. No canapés/food. What was the $50 for? Would not recommend unless it is your cheapest option in town!
