    Staff were friendly and helpful, and the location is ideal for city centre shopping and socialising.

    Only one pillow where I prefer 2, otherwise no issues

    Exceptional

    I satay in ayrshire (recently moved) but all my family are in Glasgow. I was looking for cheap accommodation to attend a family do without having to drive. The Rennie Mackintosh came up trumps in terms of a comfortable, economical place to stay overnight with a good breakfast in the morning and lovely staff.

    The location

    The room was very dark - poor lighting. The shower was cold in the evening but ok in am. The decor was very tired. The price was very good but I wouldn't want to stay for more than a one night sleep over.

    Exceptional

    The hotel is very central in Glasgow, and served mine and my friend's needs very well. It is very easy to find, the staff were very helpful, and the breakfast very good. I would stay there again and would defenatly recommend it to friends.

    Location. Good value. Good shower!

    A bit grubby - could do with a bit of rededoration. Room door handle broken. Fine for 1 or 2 nights on a budget.

    Thee street it was on was run down.

    I particularly liked the location of the hotel, its dedication to the memory of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's design contributions, and the very helpful staff.

    I was allowed a later check out than quoted due to a very late check in

    The bed was appalling and the tv reception was too poor to watch tv

    The location was very good and easy to find and the young lady on duty on reception was arrived was very welcoming and pleasant.

    The room was badly in need of a coat of paint and new furnishings.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    A good central place to stay at a reasonable price with no frills, about 10 mins walk from the main station. A friendly welcome, good breakfast, perhaps would have preferred a buffet style but I can see room is limited but what was on offer was good and served to you from the menu. Comfortable bed, clean bathroom. Overall a reasonable place to stay for a few days or overnight, if you want the Ritz then go to the Ritz and pay Ritzy prices.

    The hotel is looking tired but that is acceptable however more attention to the overall cleanliness, the walls and radiators are dirty/ dusty and have water/ tea splashings etc would go a long way to creating a nicer environment. The carpets were clean and the bedding, crisp and white.

    Superb

    Staff at reception was extreamly friendly. Breakfast was good and filling. Room was clean, hotel was only few minutes away from queen and central stations, and from shopiing centres.

    Staff forgot to leave clean towels on more than one occasion. Staff serving breakfast was rather forgetful!

    Staff were good , Breakfast excellent, room comfortable, for us the ground floor room was good, would have had difficulty otherwise. Would recomend it as a good bed and breakfast boarding house. Marion Toy.

    A poor situation for the over seventies. I would recommend that it be re-classified as it did not have the facilities associated with a hotel.

    The location was excellent and the staff very friendly

    I received a phone call at 10 in the morning to say that my card wouldnt work on their machine and neither woulfd the bank card I gave them. I had to travel up early and pay for my room before returning to chck in at the alotted time which was very inconvenient for me. The receptionist I spoke to on the phone was quite cheeky about this and it wasnt till I went up and paid did she inform me that their credit card facilities werent working properly. I had also booked a double room but was informed they had none only a single or a twin. I chose the twin but the room I was given was behind the reception desk. It was very noisy and the walls were very dirty it looked like the room the receptionist and staff would use on a night shift, not what I was expecting at all and even though it advertised its self as a hotel it wasnt a hotel but a bed and breakfast gueat house which was as far I am concerned is false advertising, the breakfast was appalling I ordered the fruit bowl and orange juice, the fruit was canned and plonked on the plate and the orange juice was amixture of orange, grapefruit and apple and tasted disgusting. I wouldnt stay their again ever.

    the hotel is badly in need of some maintenance, the bedroom walls were covered in damp at the top, sellotape to hold the wall paper in place a step away from Fawlty Towers, the person cooking the breakfast was also the cleaner the day before when we arrived
