    Fabulous

    Friendly, helpful staff, comfortable room, central location, and an excellent breakfast

    Chair in room was threadbare. Shower over bath was difficult to adjust, because you had to be under it to do so

    Superb

    very efficient check in, polite and helpful hotel staff, good breakfast and clean room with freeview TV - good for those who don't sleep too well away from home!!

    Room was quite hot - with window open, too noisy, but unsurprising in city centre location!!

    Exceptional

    Excellent features are: 1. Location of the hotel (100 mts.from Glasgow Central Station), 2. Behaviour of the staff is excellent and they are extremely helpful, 3. Check-in is a breeze even at 9 pm. 4. Excellent room decor, bathroom above standards. 5. Breakfast is fantastic although a little monotonous. I think this hotel should be given a 4-star status compared to the hotels in Europe which are disgusting (even 2/3-stars). Heartfelt recommendations. Do not look otherwise, book this hotel and I am sure you'll never regret your choice

    Superb

    Very fine hotel and friendly staff. Proper English breakfast buffet, comfy lounge and a great bar. Bar prices are fantastic. Perfect location, Central station, Buchanan bus station, Queen station, Buchanan Street - everything's nearby.

    The fixed showerhead was quite a nuisance. If you're bigger than 170 cm you don't fit under it.

    Superb

    The room was warm, clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly. The location is excellent for the station, shops and city centre offices.

    Internet access was not very reliable.
