A wonderful change from the impersonal glass and concrete structures that characterise modern hotels. A tasteful adaption and preservation of a late 19th century former church has resulted in the creation of the small (but perfectly formed) hotel alongside the National Piping Centre. We were made to feel very welcome by EVERY member of the staff from the moment of... More

Very centrally located. A stones throw from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, the Theatres and Concert Hall. The room was large, spotlessly clean, and very well appointed. The staff were remarkable - very friendly, helpful and easy going. I would definitely stay here again - and would strongly recommend it to any traveller.

I arrived before my room was ready, but the staff took care of my luggage while I explored Glasgow. The architecture of the city is very elegant. A must see is the City Council building which is extraordinary inside (marble columns and mosaic floors) and out; it is off the main square and there are gorgeous flower "pots" out front.... More

Wonderfull Hotel, idealy located to attend a Piping Class at the National Piping Center. The Staff is charming and the Food is great. The Full Scottish Breakfast does not leave anything to desire, and with that under the belt, you are ready for a full day of exploring in the city.
