Dreamhouse Apartments Glasgow City Centre4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed in a 2 bedroom with a decent sized living room kitchen combination with two large windows overlooking City Center. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The best part was the location which made it easy to walk to many museums, parks, restaurants, shopping, etc. There is a small grocery store next door which made it very easy to cook some meals in. On the other side is a Tinder Box cafe (like a large Starbucks) so you can easily access food and drink in any kind of weather. The decor depends on the apartment but our place was fresh and nice. A few not too important complaints: the kitchen stock was not great -- 4 coffee cups; 4 noon matching glasses; 2 wine glasses; 5 plates; 4 bowls; one frying pan and 2 saucepans. Silverware and cutlery were ok. You can cook in but certainly there is not enough cookware to do much. Also, the wifi is not good at all and goes on and off a lot. The windows do seem to let a lot of noise in so upper floor rooms are better. And there is an underground (very tight) parking garage which can be a real gift if you rent a car.
Stayed 6 nights in a 2 bedroom flat at the Dreamhouse apartments - very comfortable, large, well equipped. Quiet bedrooms, but noise from the street in the lounge. Could do with a coffee table in the lounge and better lighting - very dim. And no wastepaper baskets in the bathrooms. All in all, highly recommended, with excellent location, very close to good restaurants, supermarket, bars and the attractions of the centre. Excellent wifi. Very clean.
The location, space in the apartment and cleanliness of this accommodation cannot be faulted. We did experience a 'turned off' fridge/freezer that leaked water on our arrival and a bathroom extractor that was not functioning and we were not informed about. The only negative experience was being told to park in the secure underground parking below a leaking pipe that now necessitates work to be dome on the roof of the new top of the range car that i have. The factor of the building does not want to know about this (BEWARE FUTURE DRIVERS) but the apartment company has agreed to pay for the repair or refund insurance premiums. Would I stay here again? Yes. (if promise to pay for damage to car is realised). Very convenient for shops, restaurants and theatres/cinemas. Would I park as directed by the apartment management - yes - but check for leaks first. New allocated bay is fine. Factor/owner of building does not seem to want to know about problems which could be an issue if your car is damaged by his/her neglect or complete reluctance to act to fix the problem. Another car parked in bay 45 receiving the Acid Test from the leaking pipe as I type.
I do love staying at these apartments I always find the concierge staff always polite and the decor is always nice. The decor does vary but I always find it to a suitable standard and Ingram Street Is a great location to explore the city of glasgow.
Clean, spacious and comfortable accommodation in a prime city centre spot. The apartment provides all that you need in terms of service and facilities. And there is free secure parking. Excellent. The location is superb for local shops, entertainment and transport.
Unfortunately, our stay with the "Dreamhouse" Apartments turned into a complete nightmare. Our expected reservation at Blythwood was somehow mixed up and we only were able to stay at the property we booked for two nights; then was told "there was nothing they could do" and had to be moved to another property across town. We were offered a cheap bottle of champagne along with some chocolates for the trouble. We were then subsequently moved to a much more inferior property, which is not what we paid for. We booked a 5 star accommodation and this other property was barely a 3 star, with soiled carpets, cheap and incredibly worn furniture, dirty box springs, and a foul musty smell throughout the apartment. We were horrified and tried to contact them in regards to this unexpected & unwelcome surprise. The staff were unbelievably apathetic and indifferent to the fact that the two properties were vastly different and not what we had agreed to. We were asked to please understand. (!) The Director of Operations was completely unhelpful and unsympathetic to the issues we raised with her. We, in fact, got no further response from her whatsoever, nor explanation as to why this had been allowed to happen. That being said, Glasgow is a beautiful and vibrant city- with plenty of other options as far as accommodations are concerned. I cannot stress enough to urge you to stay at another property; this experience ruined our holiday.
HORRIBLE experience! Dreamhouse overbooks this property to fill out the other properties they have. We're only told about the location change when we arrived so we couldn't escape. They REFUSED to REFUND us because we DIDN'T WANT to be moved to another location. After 3 hours of discussion over the phone we were FORCED to stay in a BASEMENT STORAGE room at another location where the STAFF ENTERED IT EVERYDAY AND ALL DAY from 10.30am to get supplies. We had NO PRIVACY, NO INTERNET, there was a router but as per staff, it didn't work in ages and they won't fix it. NO PHONE because we were in a RAT HOUSE. They sad it's was 5 min walk from the property but it's 20-25 min walk without high heels. We only have one VACATION in the year and we want to be where we chose and paid in advance, in the heart of all the action so we didn't have to wait for hours to get a taxi to get back. Dreamhouse RUINED OUR VACATION! We felt cornered, abused, disturbed, depressed, stressed, helpless. OUR VACATION WAS GONE. We lost our vacation spirit and became depressed. The worse is that we couldn't do anything to change, there was no other apartments available in the city centre. WE PAID £1140,00 for a BASEMENT STORAGE ROOM.
Stayed in room 6/5 at the front of the building. First impressions were ok, although nothing like the pictures on their website, but 5 minutes in it all became clear. Such simple things weren't right. The accommodation sleeps 4, but there was only 1 cereal bowl. The dinner plates are too big for the dishwasher, one of the bathroom locks doesn't work, light bulbs out all over, the double glazing doesn't provide enough sound insulation, and the window in the living room is an accident waiting to happen - 6 floors up, a windowsill at waist height with a sofa right next to it, and the window open wide enouh for an adult to fall out.... Definitely not 4 star standard
I stayed in city centre and it is noisy and not a plush as pictures. it was a busy time but I waas way overcharged! Location is brilliant but decor is getting dated staff helpful but no one ther most of the time so some single travellers might not like.
This is a mixed review. Overall this is a great place to stay and i would recommend it. It is a nice appartment and well appointed. It is in a great location. Lots of restaurants near by, close to great shops and theatre. Sound system...overall great. Downside...not much.....no toilet paper....really????? Never stayed anywhere in the world that does not. Housekeeping could be better but they are the only downsides
