IDEAL IF YOU'RE VISITING GLASGOW FOR A GIG

I have stayed here a few times now, and it represents very good value for money when compared to other hotels, clean room & bed and a good breakfast. the central location is handy for just about everything, only problem I've ever had was my room card having to be reset to access my room, not a major problem though and I would recommend this hotel to others.

The best thing about my stay was...

The live music scene in Glasgow, I travel here regularly for gigs.

short break for the world piping championship

Allocated our room on check in and informed that if there was a problem to dial 0 for reception. On arrival at our room it was to find that we had been given a double bed when I had requested a twin. I tried to phone down to reception but the phone wasn't working. So back down to reception where I showed my accommodation voucher which clearly stated twin beds. I also mentioned that the phone wasn't working only to be informed that the phone didn't work in several of the rooms. Our room was changed but I was informed that the manager had taken the information for a double from my booking form, clearly a lie as I had my voucher. The phone in this room didn't work either!! No problems after this and staff very helpful, good breakfast but hotel quite tired and needing some updating.

The best thing about my stay was...

Fantastic place stay

The hotel is a stones throw from Central Station and shops.. The room was spacious, window looked out onto Argyle Street but not noisy at all, plenty of space and cleaned everyday. Staff at Hotel we're wonderful patient, and so willing to help with any queries if needed. Breakfast was outstanding although it's a buffet, cooked breakfast was always hot and topped up every few minutes, plenty of choice of cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, cheese, ham and croissants. Already planning another stay in September.

The best thing about my stay was...

The best thing about our stay, is that we were made to feel welcome by all the staff, so friendly.

Good value using Alpha Rooms

Great location near railway station. Good sized twin room for a single person and great value booking through Alpha Rooms. One review said it was noisy because of a night club, but my room was at the back, with a view of waste ground as well as the office block. I didn't notice any noise on Saturday night, but there was noise on Sunday night that stopped at 10pm. Corridor smelt of smoke. Good buffet breakfast.

The best thing about my stay was...

Attractive public rooms

Good enough !

Hotel was nice.a little bit outdated with some modern futures ..shower was strange, if you wanted for water to get on your body , you had to stay right beside the wall. location was central.
