10/10 Exceptional

First time in Glasgow
The room was wonderful. Hotel clerks were very friendly and helpful. The toilet system was a little loud.

6/10 Good

Would not return
The toilets have a mechanism built in that chews up the contents that are being flushed. It is extremely noisy. This is also part of the system for the sink and the shower. Very noisy - every 5 or 6 seconds when using the shower. It also means that there is often a smell of raw sewage, which is extremely unpleasant. The water in the shower ran out every time we showered, so we were left standing in the shower without water repeatedly. The hotel is tired and is in need of its plumbing being looked at urgently. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, but run off their feet trying to cope with a busy weekend.

8/10 Very good

I was dining in the West End and didn't fancy heading back to rural Renfrewshire that night so I decided to stay in a hotel. My room was quiet and nice and warm (despite it being February). I didn't have breakfast so I can't comment on that. The price for my double room was very reasonable.
