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

            7.4

            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

            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

          • Single
            9.2

            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

            8.2

            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
            7.8

            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
            8.2

            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
            7.4

            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
            6.6

            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
            4.6

            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

            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.
