A hidden gem

Posted 12-Sep-2017
From the moment we arrived the friendliness of the staff was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel is a listed building and has lovely old features from bygone years.The room was spotless and the bed so comfortable. The food was great and breakfast catered for every taste. I would highly recommend.

Fantastic Hotel in the city centre

Posted 04-Sep-2017
Pros: Style and convenience to city centre.

Beautifully decorated and very clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel very convenient for bars, restaurants and local attractions. I would highly recommend a stay there.

Very Disappointing Stay at the Abode Glasgow

Posted 18-Aug-2017
Pros: Staff did their best to be accommodating and fix the tv and safe.
Cons: Put people in the room they reserved, faster wifi. Don't charge for water in the room, other hotels give this for free. Refrigerator in the room.
Location: Near the main shopping street, within walking distance to Queen Street train station.
This is probably my first bad review. We reserved a Superior Double room with a double bed. We were given two twin beds in a wheelchair accessible room, which means a large wet room bathroom with lukewarm water in the shower (could not get a warm shower despite much effort) water went all over the floor, as the floor was not sloped to flow the water towards the drain, and of course, the sink is at wheelchair level, which makes sense for the room but not for taller people. On top of that, the wifi was extremely slow, it took minutes to send an email with an attachment and watching videos on YouTube was difficult as the videos would have to buffer. Forget streaming GoT! Their ISP does not charge them for wifi, so = extremely slow wifi. We asked to be moved to a different room, but they were booked up that night. We moved the next day to a smaller room, which was better, but the tv did not work and the safe was also not functioning. We told them about the tv and safe, and they did fix the tv but not the safe. The building itself is over a hundred years old, which looks very nice in the lobby and the old elevator is quaint, but with an old building comes less modern things like slow wifi, less outlets in the room, etc. Also, charged for water in the room - basically felt that the hotel nickle and dimed their customers. Most of the UK and Europe gives two bottles of water in the room without charge. Lastly, the lighting in the bathroom was very bad.

Noisy air conditioning

Posted 02-Aug-2017
Pros: The lift
Cons: Air conditioning less noisy, happy staff and cheaper drink
Location: Very central
Nice enough hotel , lovely lift and landings. Room ok, shower above a very high bath. Very noisy air conditioning kept us awake for hours. Bar very dear £14 for a pint and small wine served by grumpy girl .

Not great value for money

Posted 31-Jul-2017
Pros: Breakfast.
Cons: The room rates should reflect the size of the room.
Location: Very close to a huge shopping offer.
Room was really small for three of us. We couldn't open the wardrobe door because the only place the spare bed could go was in front of the wardrobe door. The hotel found us a new room that was an improvement but it was still small for three people for two nights. I thought it was expensive for the size of room. Breakfast was fantastic though, huge range of food and really good value. Not so great for fussy children though!

Lovely hotel in a really convenient location.

Easy to find and a short walk from Queen Street Train Station. Good sized room, good quality furnishings, with facilities more than the norm, such as DVD player, iron and ironing board in the room, free wifi. Really good value for money.

Good value overnight stay

Posted 17-Jul-2017 on Hotels
Enjoyed our overnight stay at ABode Glasgow, friendly welcome by reception staff who were also able to explain the history of the building. Room was a decent size and comfortable, ideal for an overnight stay. Enjoyed the breakfast, especially that hot breakfasts were cooked to order, rather than buffet style.

Theatre visit

Posted 16-Jul-2017
Ideal location for theatre visit at reasonable price. Although we had room by road on 2nd floor there was very little outside noise. Standard room was quite small but comfortable and was ideal for a one night stay. Good friendly welcome and satisfactory breakfast so good value overall

About beds in hotel.

Posted 10-Jul-2017
I would have given it a 5 star but both times I have stayed there I got a sore back from the bed so I will not being staying again. Disappointed as I thought the hotel is lovely so I am giving it a four star.
