                Cleanliness I he rooms.

                He fact hat we had another couple open the door and walk into our room as it had been let out again! Question about accuracy and indeed our privacy.

                The location is good, free parking and a good public bus service. It's comfortable, very clean and friendly

                Breakfast is a bit expensive, especially if, like me, toast and coffee are all that's required

              • Single
                5.4

                The bathroom looked clean, there were no stains or fungi in the tile seams. Also the shower head was clean.

                There were hair under the bedsheet. The carpet was not clean and had quite some stains. The curtains did not look very clean and I did not have an overall feeling of cleanliness in the bed area.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                The location was good for us.

                Fruit ran out at breakfast. Car park not very appealing at front of hotel

              • Group of friends

                Easy assess, friendly staff,good food, comfortable surroundings.

                friendly staff, convenient location

                prolongued shouting, door banging for about an hour around 3am on Sunday morning which seems to have gone unchecked by hotel staff

                can only describe it as perfect,100% every thing about it was perfect

              • Group of friends
                9.2

                Although it is in the middle of the city, it is in a very peaceful location. Room was functional, with good range of TV services. 5 minutes walk to Hyndland train Station which has around 15 trains per hour into the city centre. Hotel is right beside Great Western Road and is almost in the grounds of Gartnavel Hospital, only 10 mins walk from Byres Road with good bars and restaurants.

              • Couple
                10.0

                Is the second time have stayed here now. It is a clean and comfortable hotel. The food is excellent.

                Is a little noisy from the outside traffic. Butnothing major

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                It would be unfair to really judge as we were only there for a very short time ,because the hotel is very close to the hospital we stayed but only for bed and breakfast for one night,but it will be a hotel we will visit for a holiday break . The staff were all very friendly ,from the cleaners to the receptionest.

                As we had a twin room the only thing I would say would be the mattress on the beds , felt they could do wth updating not comfortable at all.If we were staying longer I would have had to say something .
