    The staff were excellent and the location of the hotel is really good in a nice part of the city.

    Perfect

    We had booked a triple room and we actually stayed in one of the apartments next door. This was ideal as we had a small kitchen with microwave, fridge etc etc. Ideal location near buses, good shops, cafes, botanic gardens,m university etc Would definately stay again

    The only slight problem would be the steps which were a challenge at times - a big double buggy (!)

    The machine for providing hot water for tea. The water for tea was not hot enough even at highest setting. Tea was awful.

    I like this hotel because you can be very fast and easy to the center of glasgow by bus or underground. Next to the hotel you have the beautiful Botanic Gardens- there you can make a fine walk or spend your leisure hours!

    Very nice location next to the Botanical Gardens. Easy walk (5-10 mins) to tube station.

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    A pleasant, clean and comfortable hotel offering excellent value for money. Newly decorated and in a prime position next door to the botannic gardens. Ideal for the university. Very helpful and cheerful staff who helped me personally when I inadvertently left my mobile phone charger in the room and also responded quickly to minor requests relating to service.

    Convenient location, clean, good breakfast, friendly staff.

    Perfect

    Very friendly and helpful staff, especially Louise.On arrival, as I had some baggage, she offered me a ground floor alternative to my room on the first floor, which was up two flights of stairs. The room and bathroom were both spotlessly clean, and bed comfortable. Good wifi connection and space to work in a largish single room - was able to do everything I needed. Room also had a fridge, which was really handy as it meant I could pick up a few things from Waitrose nearby and store them. Hotel is right by the River Kelvin, and a short walk from the Botanic Gardens and Byres Road. Plenty of places to eat out and visit nearby, but a bit of a distance from the city centre (which suited me).

    The room was too hot for my preference when I first arrived, but heater easily controlled and window able to be opened without difficulty.

    Great

    Good location for access to the Kelvin walkways and the Botanic Gardens. Also just a few minutes walk to Byres Rd & the Underground. Good price. Quiet location. Clean. Fridge very handy! Helpful staff. Free parking. 24hr access.

    Room a little small, tiny sink, but okay for a short visit. Breakfast had to be booked and paid for the day before. The deal was room only so I would have preferred the option to choose breakfast or not in the morning, but not a big deal.

    Very good

    It is a nice and cosy place to stay at. Friendly staff, nice rooms, close to where it happens, but not in the middle of everything. Quite excellent!
