My colleague and I were booked into this hotel for 2 nights for a corporate function. The hotel is easily reached & we walked from the station. It's also only a few minutes walk to Sauchihall Street with shops and restaurants.
My colleague was on the 2nd floor, and I was allocated a basement room. My room was huge, with twin beds & bathroom. It was however, fairly dark and the old style energy saving light bulbs did nothing to alleviate this, nor did the fact it was a basement room, and decorated in dark colours.
My colleague's room was very small with a double bed, and again quite dark as it faced other buildings.
The decor is very tired with some peeling wallpaper, the sealant down the bath panel was very roughly done, and the chipboard at the rear of the toilet had not been replaced well. Main areas of rooms were clean as was the bathroom, but attention was needed to thick dust around room edges and doors.
The PAT testing sticker stated next test due 2012 so I'm unsure on their testing regime, and the nozzle on the hairdryer did not fit. As the room is quite dark, it's hard to see to do hair or make-up, so I did my make-up in the bathroom which was much brighter.
The building works at a premise next to the hotel were constant, including overnight, although this is not in the control of the hotel.
The premise is a lovely old building with some beautiful stained glass features. The breakfast was plentiful and the defining positive for this place is their staff, who were wonderful.
The hotel could do with a bit of redecoration, some investment in LED light bulbs, and a built in store for the dirty linen instead of leaving it in a corridor near guest rooms.
Apart from that it makes a good, reasonably priced base from which to explore Glasgow. less
