Travelling alone I needed to stay overnight in Glasgow and was attracted to the Acorn because I was visiting in the city centre and a couple of nearby suburbs. The Acorn was well located for me and provided comfortable, stylish and clean accommodation at a reasonable rate. The bed was very comfortable and the en-suite shower bathroom was very good....

Six of us stayed for one night in five rooms and the unanimous comment was 'excellent.' Its location suited our needs perfectly and the level of cleanliness and service was first class. Very good shower. Excellent breakfast and great value. It would be a first choice on a future trip.

I have stayed here twice. The particularly good customer service and breakfast and the pleasant decor, cleanliness and good locatation and good value outweighed for me the downside of the noise from the bar below ground floor rooms in which I have stayed on both occasions.

I would prefer to give the Acorn hotel 2 1/2 but again it is not possible. The hotel was clean and safe, that was a plus, but indifferent staff and terrible beds could not justify more than 2 stars. Again the hotel was okay, and the rooms were clean, but the beds were so worn and uncomfortable that it felt... More
