I stayed here for one night and was very impressed. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and couldn't be more helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. I had a room overlooking the main street but that was no problem and I didn't hear any noise or traffic. The breakfast was delicious as was the meal in the...

Cozy little hotel located where it is quiet but still in easy walking distance to the center. We ended our Scotland trip with a night here and couldn't have done any better. Perfect for couples and the friendliest staff we encountered on our whole trip trough Scotland.

Dear Jonas O, Thank you very much for your lovely words! I hope you had a great trip around Scotland – glad you found it the perfect way to end your holiday. A lot of couples get married at The National Piping Centre, possibly proof that our little hotel is the ideal romantic get-away? Treat yourselves and come again soon,...

Great little hotel, ideal for our first visit to Glasgow. Conveniently situated for the tourist bus. Comfortable room, very friendly staff. No lift however so no good for anyone who cannot climb stairs. Also a bit tricky to find but parking available nearby in old wharehouse. Would definitely stay again.

Dear DavidYateley, Thank you very much for your five star rating! Unfortunately our hotel is not equipped with a lift because we are a listed building and so sadly we can’t accommodate those who require one. We do, however, have a lift installed in the National Piping Centre (which we are connected to) and therefore are able to welcome guests...

We were there only one day and night and were out most of the time however, it was not possible to have a drink at the bar on arrival because of a funeral tea or in the evening as the bar/restaurant area was full of diners, other than that a lovely small hotel.
