    The location of this hotel couldn't be better and I would recommend to anyone and shall. All the main attractions in the city centre are minutes walk away or there is easy access to the train station and bus stops.The room was very clean and spacious with a large TV and fantastic, clean shower and toilet. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and breakfast in the morning was delicious. Considering the facilities and the location this is a great deal hotel and we hope to return soon.

    Very good

    Easy access to the city, only 5-10 minutes walk to princes st and George st. Staff were lovely and helpful. Quite basic but all you need for a weekend away. Great value for money

    Our room was right on the car park so people could easily see in. The curtains had to be shut all the time. Not a big deal though!

    the location was excellent , the hotel was clean and comfortable and the room was a good size. although we arrived just after 12 o'clock and check in wasn't till 2 p.m we were allowed access to our room straight away

    fine as we were only staying one night but if staying for a while was short on storage space for clothes

    Superb

    Friendly staff, clean and comfortable room. Ideal location for theatre and restaurants. Reasonable cost.

    Only downside is the breakfast. The room itself is too small for all the visitors and rather dangerous when trying to manoeuvre round the tables with a hot drink in your hand. I had a job finding the butter, never saw any yoghurts or cheeses, my morning roll was hard, and there were no crusty rolls. You are now serving a limited cooked breakfast which my husband enjoyed but we would have preferred a good continental breakfast. However this breakfast food was much better than the holiday inn express in Theatreland Glasgow where the egg was powdery and the sausages mush.

    Fabulous

    Excellent centre for visiting various places and near to public transport. Just what we needed for breakfast and a comfortable safe place to sleep.

    The location of the hotel is excellent

    The staff is efficient but not flexible. I saw guests checking out 8am onwards but they did not provide us and early check-in till 1 pm. Breakfast options are very limited. One of my main reasons for booking this hotel was the complimentary breakfast. But they have limited options
