Super wee family run hotel. Stayed here with friends. Clean, quiet and lovely cooked breakfast. Great location for the West End. Only 5 mins walk from Byres Road/Great Western Road so near lots of pubs and restaurants. Will definitely stay again.

This hotel is a little gem in a quiet street in the west end of Glasgow. Stayed for four nights room was spacious and comfortable and spotlessly clean. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is a short walk from a wide variety of restaurants and bars. Would recommend this hotel to anyone great value for money... More

We had the unexpected bonus of being offered an upgrade to the adjacent Embassy Apartments. The suite we were given was very clean and spacious and very nicely furnished and the hotel staff were super helpful. The breakfast was in the main hotel and was excellent and included a full Scottish option. The hotel is located in a quiet road... More

There were two empty bottles of wine hidden behind a mirror, an empty wrapper behind the bedside table, the capets are torn, the bathroom is covered in mould, hot water lasted around 1 minute, my room didn't look like the pics advertised. Sheets and towels seemed clean though. Wouldn't stay here again.

Wasn't expecting much as booked for a budget overnight stay as working on Sunday morning. The standard was well above the price bracket and it's located within walking distance of the centre. Very clean and fully modernised - excellent free wifi and free view ( for Dave fans like me it's a must!). The owner was very welcoming and most... More

Lovely spot and building but the staff are a real let down (unfriendly, cold, at least the ones I came in contact with). My room was okay but the housekeeping was poor (e.g. towels unchanged and left hanging in various places). I'd say the place is OK for a night or two but don't expect much.

Great hotel, part of the McQuade chain of hotels, would recommend in a heartbeat!
