    I am so sorry that I could not find any thing I like about the hotel.

    We do like the hotel location,however there is not a clearly sign or a hotel name on the public sight. (We find the hotel by ask at least three local people) When we finally find the hotel, the reception was small and disordered. The hotel lift almost could not hold three adults and their luggages. In our room, everything seems tight which is fine. But when we try to take a shower we disappointed again, cause the shower machine would not work. (Room 109) Because we could not take shower we decided go to bed earlier, however we find we do not have duvets but only blankets. To be honest, the blankets which the hotel provides are thin and very old. Be careful about the underground, cause u can hear and feel it until 12pm in ur room.

    proximity to Queen Street railway station, George Square and main shopping streets and Malls. Staff helpful and friendly. Breakfast excellent . Bed comfortable.

    Bedroom was clean but could do with refurbishing. Radiator in bedroom was behind the dressing table so didn't get full effect Extractor fan in bathroom was very noisy. Had my own hairdrier so didn't look for one in room. If it was there it may have been in a drawer. Room was at back of hotel so no view but I didn't hear any noise to disturb me from outside.

    It was easy accessable for train station and bus station

    There was no hair dryer in the hotel and no telephone in order to contact reception. Hotel room was a little tired in decor and furnishings and is right above the underground train station so there is a lot of noise. Im sure in the hotel description it said breakfast to go - but was told on check in there was no such facility.

    Friendly staff.

    Very noisy outside at night, but this is to be expected as it's right in the city centre.

    Central location

    Very noisy extractor fan in the bathroom - at the end of a long day I was hoping to relax and read in the bath - but found the noisy fan irritating!

    Prime location next to train station and shopping areas. Excellent breakfast in the morning - worth half the room rate !

    Hotel is very old and the rooms could do with an "upgrade" but for somewhere to sleep in a good location it's a good deal.

    The breakfast and staff were helpful.

    The rooms were freezing and I was waiting a week for the reception manager to fix my tv remote.

    Central and reasonably comfortable.

    It can be noisy, breakfast was nice but a bit messy.

    Really quiet hotel as it's on a pedestrian street. Great breakfast!

    Clean and tidy, but much needed re-decoration/update.

    The city centre location ideal for shopping trip

    Not a dislike but felt that decor and furnishings were a bit old fashioned
