      Lovely old building and great location on river.

    • Group of friends

      The apartment was lovely, clean and in a good location which suited out needs. The only fault we found was that the shower did not work well, the flow was poor and it was particularly difficult to regulate the temperature. The temperature of the water in the apartment was also very hot with the potential of scalding. I would however be delighted to stay at the appartments again. thank you Catherine Graham

      Clean well presented rooms and facade .perfect location for west end . only 200 yards from the hilton at a fraction of the cost. .I had a pleasant walk down the adjacent kelvin river in the morning and saw a kinkfisher

      I went with my parents who are in their 80's and the front steps were a challenge so I would imagine disabled access should be checked out first I have stayed many times before and you usually find the room is not preheated (electric radiators) and the hot water needs to be turned on. But give it half an hour and it is not a problem even in winter.

      It was comfortable and quiet, yet very well placed for the West End of Glasgow, where you can find the Botanical Gardens, and interesting shopping and restaurants on Byres Road. Handy for the university for graduation.

      Kitchen was slightly under-equipped for a weekend stay. Some washing up liquid and a cloth or sponge would have been welcome. There were only two mugs.

      Good location in quiet area. Parking. Everything provided for self-catering. Easy access by public transport to centre of Glasgow.

      Leaking wash basin but dealt with fairly promptly. Fire door downstairs was left open a lot and doors were banging when left to close automatically, presumably by other guests..

      very convenient for Byers Rd which has a very good choice of shops and restaurants and very good for free parking around the hotel location

      Choose to stay there as I lived at the apartments 40years ago before it was coverted to a hotel cum apartments. Wanted to take a trip down "memory lane" it served it's purpose as I knew my way around easily . To my surprise I was given the same room I rent back then. How is that for coincidence!

      It was noisy with people slaming front-doors and cooking utensils should be checked before next guest arrives as there were fillty with left over food.

      Location was good

      Staff were ok but comments about international visitors were unneeded and slightly racist. It was a bit dirty and dated. Bathroom always smelt of urine...

      Very spacious, cosy and well equipped. Good value and good location. Nice and quiet so able to get a good nights sleep after hard day shopping.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Helpful and friendly staff. Free parking with guaranteed space. Spacious studio apartment giving comfort with flexibility. Good position for scenic walks to art galleries/shops or close proximity to transport systems. Free wifi. Would stay again.

      This apartment suited my needs i.e. quiet, clean, nice outside area, near Botanic Gardens and easy access to City. The young woman who changed the bed and supplied clean laundry was extremely pleasant and seem to have a genuine interest in me as a guest.

      Although it was self catering it would have been useful to have had the bin in my apt emptied or where I could have emptied it!!. I did cook and the bin was full of parts of food etc there was no advice on who and when put the trash out!
