    The hotel was clean, I stay their because it was near to Glasgow university (only12 mintues by walking). close to botanic garedn

  • Single

    right opposite the botanic gardens and a stone's throw from Byres Rd/Gt Western Rd - perfect location. i also enjoyed the basic but very good breakfast

    bit chilly in the breakfast room

    excellent family room/apartment

    I thought that the staff was wonderful. I loved their friendly attitudes and their willingness to help out in what ever way they could. Thanks for making our special toast every morning.

    I would have liked to have fresh towels each day. I missed not having washcloths for the shower. Also the hot water didnt work very early in the morning and one day I needed to leave by 6:00 and had a freezing shower. YIKES

    The quiet area and the beautiful old style of hotel. Very clean and cosy room. I loved it.

    The wake up call in the morning didnt work

    A nIce nature walk along the river just across the road, just a pleasant ten minute walk to city centre, plenty of free on street parking

  • Older travelers

    Although we arrived early, the staff were very accomodating and helpful. It was ideally placed for our purposes, with walking to sites, parks, and shopping very convenient.

  • Single

    clean and comfortable

    the restaurant was too small for the hotel, so breakfast was rushed. a smile from the waitress would have been nice as well!

  • Single

    Well I booked this hotel as a last resort cos I got into Glasgow rather late. I booked online without realising that the check-in time ended at 10pm. So I had to wake reception at the hotel to check me in! They were kind enough do that and I found my room satisfactory even though it was a single room. I liked the size of the tv and the placing on the room.

  • Family with children

    Good location for the West End, we stayed for our son's graduation at Glasgow University which was in walking distance. Decorated to a good standard, comfy beds and clean.

  • Older travelers

    Despite bragging that room charges had only risen 2.4% pa , we were charged £90 per night for the room on 22/23 June, an increase of about 40% on normal charges.

  • Older travelers

    Very good breakfast.

    Very poor cleanliness, apparently they do not hoover the rooms, the least you can expect when paying 100£ per night!

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Location, value for money and especially friendliness and helpness of staff

  • Single
    10.0

    Clean comfortable hotel with friendly, helpful staff, in an ideal location in the West end of Glasgow.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    We have stayed before at this hotel and room allocation is a bit hit and miss however this time it was a hit. We booked a double room and due to overbooking were allocated a 5 bed appartement in the ammbassador appartements next door Appartement 6, a miniture palace. Ornate plasterwork on the barrel ceiling , good wi fi access excellent shower, small but adequate kitchen area..We are returning for our son's graduation soon and live in expectation of a similar upgrade Free off road parking 5 Mins walk from Byres road/ Botanical gardens and often has rooms available at short notice. Ps I saw a kingfisher on the Kelvin river aacent to the hotel.

    If I must find something to moan about the access to the parking at the rear could be a bit of a challenge.
