Visiting family

This hotel ticked just about all of our boxes; we come up to Glasgow quite a lot and our experiences of some of the hotels we have stayed at has been pretty dire. I am partially disabled and although the room was not fully disbled friendly it was able to accommodate the various gadgets that I travel with. it was clean and comfortable, it was easy to park and it was reasonabley close to our family.

The hotel experience was good from my viee. Minus the construction (which we recieved no warning for) the room and staff were great. I'd come back again.

Hyndland train takes you right into downtown Glasgow for all shopping needs. Take the same train for an hour ride and be in historical and whiskey central Edinburgh. Easy travel

Wonderful 11 day stay

Having experienced other hotels on a 12 day bus trip with Trafalgar tours just before our stay and 4 days after this in another hotel for 4 days we had 9 other hotels to compare the Pond to. We also stayed in 6 B&Bs. Comparing all these accommodations only the Blu Radisson in Glasgow beat out the Pond Hotel.

The Italian Restaurant beside the Pond Hotel has very good food and special prices during the week that make it a reasonable place to eat.

Value on a budget

Stayed for a week while moving into a flat in the west end. + price, free wifi, very comfortable bed, close to rail and bus network, M&S express next door, free parking, quite area (expect Saturday night/when there is a function on in the hotel) - distance from Bynes st and the city centre if you are planning on walking and if you are in a room over their function area expect no sleep. I wouldn't stay again on a Saturday, but would be happy to any other night.
