Good Hotel Guide Review

If you’re looking for a modestly priced hotel at the heart of the city, this is just the ticket – a modern B&B on the penthouse floor of a handsome, buff stone, 1900s office building, right by Central Station. ‘It has a lot going for it,’ writes a regular reader this year. ‘Handy location for sightseeing, and friendly, helpful staff.’ On arrival guests are greeted with tea or coffee and cakes – available at no charge, all day, in ‘The Kitchen’, the smart if ‘cramped’ hotel hub. Bedrooms have Caledonian oak floor, king-size bed, power shower and desk, alongside views over the vast Victorian glass station roof. In summer, our reader’s room was hot despite a ceiling fan – and opening the window meant letting in street noise. Daily breakfast, and supper from Monday to Thursday, can be taken in Kitchen or bedroom, with ingredients sourced from good local delicatessens – fruit, yogurts, eggs, bacon, cold meats, cheeses, and Scottish porridge, naturally. There are kedgeree days, menus celebrating National and European days. Secure 24-hour parking is available close by but why not let the train take the strain?

Guest comments

'Though basic, it represents excellent value for money. It is clean and modern ,and superbly located for travellers either staying in or passing through the city. My room was pod-like but clean and functional.The tiny shower occupied a corner, separated by a solid wood sliding door. A delicious hot buffet breakfast, served and cleared via an adjoining galley kitchen by a friendly female Glaswegian. ' - Robert Gower - December, 2018
'Grasshoppers has a lot going for it, but the room we were in, though nice, was too hot at night, even with the roof-fan on, and could have done with air-conditioning. The food is good (both dinner and breakfast) but eaten in a cramped room. Good views, handy location for sight-seeing, and friendly helpful staff. ' - MS - August, 2017
'An excellent choice of the GHG. Spotlessly clean, quiet, Scandinavian-style back room. The bed was comfortable. the shower was large. Breakfast was excellent, with good bread. It has not got the frills of a large hotel, but this is the place to be, and quality is brilliant. ' - AD & J. Lloyd - May, 2016
