Millennium Hotel Glasgow

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Faultless in every aspect except some staff a little offhand.

The hotel was undergoing renovations so the front was covered with scaffolding. Our room was located on the 1st floor in the back so it faced the train station. This made for a surreal, not unpleasant view, but unpleasant train (and Burger King) odors when the windows were open. However we did have access to the ScotRail free wifi, even though you had to be near the window (but it saved us 5 pounds/day on the hotel's wifi, which appeared to have maxed out on users one morning anyway). The room was comfortable overall, if not a little warm with the down bedding, but the bed pillows were like sleeping on rocks. Great deal considering the ideal location and attractive hotel decor (the room decor was a bit worn, but not unattractive). Remarkably quiet with regard to other guests next door/across the hall. Pleasant staff.

Big rooms,friendly and helpfull staff ,good prices.

The hotel hasn't been renovated in a while but everythings kept very clean. The staff were nice and kept our luggage for the entire day. They only allow 4 towels per room which I though was weird even when i explained that we needed them as we wanted to shower before dinner, bed and in the morning as we had a long day of travel. Its in an extremely central place within the city. Good for taking the trains and shopping. However in the morning we could hear the announcer from the train station which woke us up. This hotel is very utilitarian. Dont expect any extras for free.

I booked through here and when I arrived at the hotel they weren't interested in accommodating my request for two Twin beds. This broker guarantees "double bed or twin beds." Which is a big difference if you're traveling with someone you don't share a bed with. The hotel gave me a very small double bed (not even a queen) and claimed the hotel was sold out and there were no twin bed rooms available. If you're prepaid, the hotel doesn't care about your business.

Overnight Stay for concert at Theatre Royal....which was a short walk away....very comfortable room... public transportation back to airport a few steps away from hotel as well as Rail Station. A very pleasant experience

Was a little disappointed to see hotel based on pictures presented on line, much more darker area but right in St George Square , near train and shopping. Staff working hard to do right and help guests. Glasgow being a dark city and weather cloudy, I would go back again but would consider more 3.5 hotel rather than a 4.

Comforatble enough room but one lamp shade was completely broken, kettle had to plugged into socket by door as nearest socket to table was too old and couldnt fit in, one lamp shade on wall was bent so if light was on the shade was burning. Old room, needs attention.

Nice large somewhat old, comfortable rooms, a bit warn, in a superb location. The staff were friendly and efficient. We would definitely stay there again.

The only drawback was lack of internet connections in the rooms, which apparently will be installed soon. Internet was available in the lobby.

Very small room, bed is nota comfortable and small. You can only watch 3-5 tv channels, even they are with very bad view.

The Millenium was perfectly located--next to the Queen St. train station, the Bucanan tube stop, and right on George's Square. A short walk takes you to the Modern Art museum, or to Argyll Arcade. The tube 'Clockwork Orange' makes getting around the city easy. We spend an entire day at the Glasgow Science Center--and we didn't even have kids with us! It's a must for families with little ones. Walk just down Bucanan St to get to Waxy O'Connors, an eclectic multi-storey pub. One room looks like it was carved from a tree, others feel like you're sitting in church. Lovely 14' high ceilings at the Millenium were a change from cramped London hotels. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet had a full range of foods from the familiar to haggis (try it, you'll like it). We'll be back for sure.

This hotel is in an ideal location, the airport shuttle stops right in front and it is very convenient for sightseeing. The staff is first rate, very willing to help and answer questions and when I arrived exhausted after an all night flight, I was given a room immediately, something that has never happened to me in several trips to Europe, usually we have to endure several hours waiting for official check in time.

I have just returned after having spent nine days in the Millenium where I was exposed to three different rooms -- two of which were labled " executive " rooms all on the third floor. My observations and opinions are based upon what I saw on the third floor and in the lobby/bar/restuarant area. This Millenium is shabby, expensive and I'm sorry to say should be considered an embarrassment to Scotland. The good news about this hotel is its location smack dab in the heart of Glasgow on St George's Sq. and next to the Queen St. station. It's very convenient to shopping, pubs, museums and the concert hall. It also has some of the hottest water I've ever experienced in a hotel.. so much so that I wondered if there is a temperature control on the boilers. The staff for the most part were pleasant although some of the male waiters seemed to take an unreasonably (20 minutes) long time to acknowledge new customers even when it was not a peak time. I requested a quiet room in the front of the hotel and it was. The bathrooms had been updated although there is only one shaving outlet permitted so I found myself rooting around behind the TV for other outlets which were very scarce. I would seriously caution anyone accustomed to US 4 star hotel standards because judging by this particular Millenium hotel, there is a WORLD of difference. The carpeting in the hallways and the rooms I saw was worn, stained and had a 3-4 inch border of dirt along the entire perimeter. Two of the chairs we used in the lounge area had big seatwide stains on them as well. A bedside table in my room had a 4 inch wide water stain and deep scratchs. Two of the light bulbs were burned out. The furniture in the rooms was of the cheapest quality and the wallpaper,fabrics and decor was depressing and badly in need of a decorator's touch. One member of the housekeeping staff boldly knocked on my door about 9 am despite the "Do Not Disturb" tag hanging on the knob.It took 4 days before a clean facecloth was provided. Two days later it disappeared and was not replaced. The last day the cold water didn't work for about 5 hours and the toilets didn't flush. This hotel is also expensive. A small bottle of diet coke cost the equivalent of about $3.80, and continental breakfast in your room about $28.00. The good news is that you don't have to eat here. There are many less expensive places nearby. The "Victorian" description should be interpreted to mean an old hotel with dated facilities where the management apparently reasons there's no need to update things until they are light years away from being fresh and new, nor values an eye for detail to make repairs when needed.

The Millenium is the perfect location: The Glasgow Flyer (the airport bus shuttle) stops right at the door; the Queen Street Railway station is at the side of the entrance; the underground rail is a block away; George Square is to the front of the building; University of Strath-Clyde is a block away, The "Mile of Style" is a block away, and the Cathedral district is only 3 blocks. The hotel is cozy and steeped in style. Close to the Theatre District and high-end shopping. The lobby features a glass patio street cafe overlooking George Square, and the rooms are both spacious and clean featuring over-sized towels, plush terry bath robes, in-room safe and hot pot for tea, coffee and chocolate. Highly recommended for a classic British hotel experience.

Stay was uneventful, which is good.

Located right on George Square, the hotel is perfectly located for a week in Glasgow. The staff are friendly and helpful. I only rated a "3" because the room was outdated and could have been a bit cleaner when we arrived. But I would stay there again.

Fantastic location, close to everything. Well maintained and staffed.
