Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in an apartment which is a big room with comfy beds, amazing pillows, a sofa , table and chairs and little kitchen. All clean and no issues at all. Lovely position by the river and botanic gardens. We tried to book breakfast the afternoon before but they were full so make sure you book well in advance if you want it.

I booked for a single room and was given an apartment with king size bed, wee seating area and large shower room en suite. Excellent value for price I paid. More than I expected. The room was very clean and quiet. I had a super night's sleep. Hotel on the doorstep of the quiet botanical gardens and near the west end shops.

David was great, he sorted the remote (that was missing) out. He also brought me more milk one morning. He was very friendly, kind and professional. The room was wonderful and clean, very spacious and the bed was nice a firm. I am looking forward to my next visit and hopefully bringing the family.

Arrival: Rang the doorbell for access, my wife uses a mobility walker and I was carrying two cases. The door was held open for us but we were not offered any help with our luggage (we are both 70) . Check-in was quick and efficient and directions to our room were clear but again, no offer of help with luggage. Room: We stayed four nights and the room was huge! Very comfortable bed and a fantastic shower!! There was plentiful tea & coffee supplied. The room was warm but the common areas of the hotel were quite cold. Housekeeping: I spoke to reception regarding a housekeeping issue and it was resolved in a matter of minutes. Breakfast: We had breakfast every morning and there’s a good selection of hot and cold options. Overall: Great location for the West End, this is a good value 3* hotel with a few minor issues but we’d definitely stay again.

Well presented. Clean bright and airy. The only staff member was pleasant and helpful. Only glitch; had to ask for a bath towel as there was none in room on arrival. Breakfast was served promptly again by the same staff member. No vegan options on the menu, but was not issue as there was ample cereal and fruit to keep me happy. Awoken by bird song, and tempted into a run along the adjacent Kelvin river trail . Oh and as other reviews have mention slow hot water, (good shower temp and flow) squeaky bathroom door, and sounds from adjacent rooms, which. during this visit was fiddlers rehearsing as part of Celtic Connections..not an issue as I was also strumming a ukulele as part of the event... Will I return ? YES.

The hotel and Apartments were absolutely immaculate, very modern, early check in and ideal location from where we were heading, will definitely return next year. We had a triple room in the annex which was huge, included kitchen with fridge and cooking facilities and a very modern bathroom. Friends had a twin room next door which again was very modern and clean ❤️

we booked last minute for one night as we were going for a Xmas Night out in the West End. We were able use the car park (which is a tight drive into to it) but saved us parking fees which was great. We stayed in room 16 which is at the top of the building it was lovely and fresh and clean had everything we needed and is perfect if you are wanting to visit the west end, would stay again
