Spent last night at this hotel in room 3. It was a corner room so lovely and bright. Bed linen and room was clean. The issue is that everything is old and tatty looking. This room needed an upto date bathroom and décor, the furniture is cheap and not good quality. The most positive I can is that the staff...

I would have rated this hotel as "excellent" because of the wonderful building, food and friendly staff, clean sheets and lovely towels everyday....so i don't understand why such a beautiful building should be neglected like this! rubbish outside in the beer garden (broken furniture mostly) and the twin room we booked for a few nights stay was pretty dire, bathroom...

This hotel is located just a short taxi road from the city centre and next to St Mungos Cathedral and the Necropolis. A few of us stayed here on a Saturday night. Greeted by friendly helpful staff, we arrived early so they stored our bags whilst we went off to the city. Returned late that night for a quick drink...

A real find. The place is handily appointed just off the motorway. Perfect for the centre of town. There is free parking to the rear. We stayed in the John Know Suite which was spotless, had views over the East end of the city and the four poster bed provided one of the most comfortable sleeps we have had. The...

Quirky building, 8 bedrooms (I think) with a bar downstairs. Staff were wonderful but the rooms were shabby and in dire need of a makeover. We had rooms 1 & 5. Room 5 had no hairdryer, no Lightbulb in the sidelight, no working light in the bathroom. I couldn't get the TV to work. Room 1 was marginally better in...

One night stay in Glasgow, hotel opposite the Glasgow Cathedral. There is a small car park too which is a bonus. Staff couldn't have been friendlier, location good for town centre, ok there are a few stairs to climb to the rooms...but heck it's an old building! Room was basic but fine for a nights stay, there was live music...

Our two twin rooms were shabby and depressing with paintwork coming off the bedside tables. The sash window in one of the rooms wouldn't close. The whole ambience was 'grim'. To reach our rooms we went up three flights of spiral stairs, two of which are concreted. We decided to check out immediately and explained our views to the manager....

the website shows you pictures of 2 rooms which look really nice, they don't show the other rooms because they badly need updating, plain, tired, do not represent the website or the price compared to other hotels, also the view was not of the necropolis or the cathedral as advertised but of the roof of the building (turret room).... however,...

Adjacent to Glasgow Cathedral and The Necropolis. This place should be busy every day. Our food was simple but really tasty and cooked well. No Brake Brothers' specials, just proper home made fare. Inexpensive too. Definitely worth a visit. In a great location and amongst beautiful buildings with intriguing, chilling histories.

After a most interesting tour of the nearby Necropolis, we stopped in for a late lunch. The bar area is warm, welcoming and comfortable and the service was friendly. Drinks were served very quickly. The menu had a few veggie options - I had the chilli burger. Jalapeños were promised but there did not appear to be any with my...
