Una noche en Glasgow para ir a un concierto
Mi pareja, mi perrita y yo nos alojamos una noche en una habitación con cuarto de baño compartido. Los baños, para ser compartidos, estaban limpios. La cama bastante cómoda. Tienen facilities (calentador de agua, tés y cafés). El personal es extremadamente amabale. Desayuno muy rico en un salón precioso. Tiene 4 plazas de parking y los perros tienen un suplemento por día. A cinco minutos de la estación de metro y de una calle con muchos restaurantes. ¡Volveremos!

Fair 4.0
Helpful accommodating staff uncomfortable rooms
Tricky to park and rather tiring finding suitable leagal place ! Rooms very small. We were put in a tiny double down in a dark basement which resembled a rabbit warren as rooms divided into tiny compartments hardly big enough to sleep 2 people comfortably. Rooms furnished with very cheap furnishings including mattress which was therefore very hard and uncomfortable !! Equally cheap pillows which were hard as rocks !
