    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 (!)

    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!
