Good Hotel Guide Review
A recent guest describes this modern, style-conscious and budget-friendly penthouse hotel, next to Glasgow Central Station, as a ‘great find’. From the less-than-promising entrance, a lift whisks guests up six floors to a Scandi-meets-urban eyrie of dove-grey and white with pale oak floors, contemporary furniture and soft lighting, there to be greeted by its ‘very welcoming’ owner, Barrie Munn. A corridor leads to the bedrooms, either overlooking the rooftops of Union Street or the station’s glazed roof. Stylishly simple bedrooms have large casement windows (with blackout curtains), handmade wallpaper and plump duvet. Pod-like bathrooms are compact but have a powerful shower and Arran Aromatics toiletries. There is a small bar in the sitting room. Breakfast, a feast of bacon and eggs, fresh fruit and yogurt as well as porridge, cheeses and cold meats, is served in The Kitchen where home-made cakes, sausage rolls and tea and coffee are freely available. Our reviewer ordered the ‘modestly priced’ suppers in advance, and found them ‘very pleasant’. ‘We thoroughly enjoyed our stay,’ he enthuses. (Michael Blakely)
