Reviewed 17 August 2017

We were very pleased with our stay at this Premier Inn, having decided to book two nights to break the journey North for a family event and try to extract a day's holiday from the trip. We chose it because of the free parking... which we only just managed to take up bagging the last space when we arrived not particularly late in the evening.
The lift door was overeager and we were caught out on several occasions, in one instance on arrival, enough for one of us to sustain a bruised hand.
Our sons were allocated what must be the best room in the hotel, 301 - we booked a twin for them, they got a double bed each and a wide bay window. The move to walk in showers was very welcome and the fittings were better than a fixed overhead. The shower gel dispensers could have been better sited.
I found the bed very comfortable but this view was not shared - hard to please everyone. The kettle was quicker than hotel kettles usually are. We were allocated rooms next to each other which was appreciated and perhaps due to being at the end of the corridor and on the top floor it was very peaceful. I'd really like to see Premier Inn introducing just a touch of local interest in the choice of art works.
The hotel itself was clearly busy with a packed bar. It's just a short walk into the city centre across the Clyde, and a short walk to the nearest Subway station. There are free maps but oddly no sign of any tourist information leaflets.
Breakfast was generally good, although I find the need to order porridge and vegetarian sausages means I don't choose them to avoid getting out of synch with my companions. Similarly not having a way for customers to warm croissants themselves is offputting. The self-service items were well topped up. The new bubble and squeak was disappointingly bitter and woody, and the advertised grapefruit segments and maple syrup were not out. I am told that the meat sausages tasted better than they looked.
We would definitely choose this hotel again, and quite aside from the many attractions in Glasgow, the hotel itself encourages us to return.

Room Tip: 301 may be the best room in the hotel with two double beds and a wide bay window.

We stayed in this hotel last weekend for two nights. We are well used to enjoying the Premier Inn hotels in various locations. There was no major problem with the bedroom except that housekeeping never came to service it so I had to ask for towels and condiments at reception. They apologised simply and gave what was needed. I thought they could have done better. Breakfast was well varied but staff were not very friendly...not unfriendly either but lacked enthusiasm and efficiency. I would say the hotel generally needs some painting on the stairway. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and had no complaints. The food was fine.

This was an overnight stop as we made our way from the south of England to the Isle of Mull. It's a really comfortable place to sleep, it's situated so that you can hop on the metro to the centre and the food options were plentiful and yummy.

If you have the choice stay at a different premier inn. Overall poor service and incredibly overheated. Lift broke down while we were there no options but to use stairs (and I'm disabled). Understand this wasn't the hotels fault but a huge issue. Very noisy with other guest. Long wait times at bar- where again it was overheated. However rooms clean and good sized The service at breakfast was very good
