    Courtesy, breakfast, quiet place, comfortable room, location

    I would suggest them to provide paper towel in the shared bathrooms and toilet, rather than a cloth hand towel.

    The location was just where we wanted and the Charing Cross Guest House compares very favourably to its competitors. The room was large - two double beds - and the facilities were excellent.

    There was a wide range of food for breakfast but the fried component was quite poor

    The room was pretty, and comfortable, and the staff were helpful and courteous. The internet is free and fast, and the location is very nice if you need to be in the center of Glasgow and reasonably close to the airport (20 minutes). breakfast is also reasonably good. Despite some negatives, I would possibly stay there again and recommend it to others.

    Sound insulation is very poor, so birds would wake me up very early and affect my quality of sleep. While the staff were friendly, they were often too busy and overworked, and there was sometimes visible and audible tension between them because of that. I think they need more staff. Sometimes dining tables are not very clean, and the dining area is so small that often you have no choice but to sit with other guests or wait for someone to finish and leave their spot. Also, for the amount of money, I was expecting to have a bathroom in my room, but I only had a sink and had to use a shared bathroom.

    Not a lot

    Staff flustered when we reported ceiling. Took a while to find management. Eventually allocated another room but felt we were an inconvenience.Reception area cluttered and untidy.Could do with upgrading. Felt claustrophobic.

    Bed was comfortable Location was reasonably close to everywhere we wanted Relocated at short notice to nicer hotel

    Price of 2 nights so-so accommodation must have brought in a lot for the owners because of the games- your best review quotes £45 per night, multiply that by 5 for our rate. Booking was immediately debited form my account again probably because of the games, although had I waited a week I could have been charged £100 less Our room had a serious flood on the second day, we were relocated but Reception staff were not helpful nor caring of H&S implications (water was dripping through light fitting) We pointed out hairs on the floor from previous occupants when we first arrived but they were not cleaned away. Breakfast was nice, but choice of cooked food not given and staff talked loudly to each other instead of serving customers

    Good location

    The room was better than I thought it would be, relatively clean and quite comfy. Until I returned home late that night and went to get into bed and discovered the sheets were covered in suspicious looking yellow stains.After that there wasno way I could give a good review

    Location - 10-15 min walk from main city centre.

    This, like the other hotel we stayed in on the same road the previous night, had hiked prices massively for The Commonwealth Games ... £135 for a 2 star room (no private bath or wc) normally priced at around £45. This was our first visit to Glasgow. Found the bars, restaurants, shops, taxis (and Games tickets) to be very good value - and the locals warm and welcoming. Doubtless they'll use the supply & demand argument - despite the fact that it wasn't full - but the blatant profiteering by the hotels leaves a sour taste and ensures that in future we'll stick to Edinburgh. The body responsible for encouraging visitors to Glasgow would do well to speak to the hotels and guest houses about the long term negative impact of their actions.

    I arrived later in the evening and there was no hot water in my room sink or in the bathrooms.

    I have just stayed here for the fourth time. I often need to visit Glasgow for work, and originally picked the hotel as a convenient base mid-way between the railway stations and the university. This turned out to be a good choice: this is a reliable, inexpensive hotel with good facilities for the price. Rooms are neat, clean and comfortable, and the staff are always extremely helpful about calling taxis storing luggage after check-out, and so on. The breakfasts are excellent: full, fried breakfast, plus a range of cereals, yoghurts, toast, etc. The wi-fi service seems to have improved over the years, and was working well on this visit. The hotel is just up the hill (quite a steep hill!) from Sauchiehall Street, so very well situated for restaurants and bars. I'll certainly continue to stay here in future.

    If you have a heavy suitcase, be warned that you will have to carry it up a short flight of stairs to reach the front door of the building. (Although I'm sure the staff would help if you asked.)

    good location and a little expensive for the facilities, but was the only available option for the July games opening - usual suspects were asking over £300 for one night - this was £95 with breakfast (which was good - and staff were 'on the ball')

    Bedroom (en suit) smelled a little damp - but had a good nights sleep - inevitable following the walking involved on the opening night! no problem getting to the stadium - but getting back was another story!

    Location and breakfast. Tea making facilities in room and satelllite tv. ? Secure front door.

    Commonwealth games meant few options left but the room was expensive for what it was. No hairdryer in room. Noisy doors slamming in other rooms disturbed sleep.

    The breakfast. Not much else.

    The room was tiny, cramped and smelt stale. The tv was connected by a hole in the wall, there were stains everywhere. There was only a single tiny loo/shower room per floor and the light was broken in the one on our floor, making it unusable. When I went for a shower I felt dirty even when I came out. The dropping off and picking up your key every time you leave was a hassle, especially as there was rarely someone actually sat at the reception desk. All in all, would never recommend this place to anyone.
