A comfortable room, extremely pleasant staff and a convenient location just off the motorway make this one of my best experiences in a hotel. The staff were so friendly, answering any queries when they arose, and looked genuinely like they enjoy their work - especially the night porter who loved a conversation! Breakfast was gorgeous with a choice of continental or a full Scottish, so naturally my other half and I requested bacon and sausage sandwiches instead - not a problem at all. The restaurant was great and the staff attentive and there I had one of the best quality steaks I've had for a long while. The room itself is what you expect from a hotel, clean and comfortable. You do need to request an ironing board but the staff can get this to you in a matter of minutes. The bathroom was clean and well kept (I often judge a hotel on the state of it's bathrooms) and the shower was fantastic.
If I had to choose a downside, I would say the walls are quite thin. We could hear people passing the door clearly and, at night, could hear the next room's TV. We were the furthest from the restaurant, so I can imagine if you were one of the rooms closer, that could be frustrating
Location wise, it was a seven minute walk to get to Motherwell's shopping centre and it's roughly a half hour drive to get into the centre of Glasgow. A fantastic experience for such a low cost. less
