            Room very cold, radiator didn't work.

            Close to town, clean and warm room.

            No private parking area, shared bathroom between floors.

          • Couple
            5.0

            Location in West Glasgow, ease of access to airport.

            Hostess was most unhelpful, interested only in getting credit card payment then not wanting to be bothered with any other type of service ie we paid for breakfast only to be told it was not possible to have any type of early breakfast (early flights out) as the cook does not start till 7:30am. Seemed she wanted to do as little as possible and set low expectations. Will tell all my friends not to stay here.

            It was perfect for our requirements and very convenient location for restaurants, shops, pubs etc.

            Good value for Money and friendly and Heilpflanze staff.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Nice big rooms, very obliging staff, good location close to the University of Glasgow.

            This hotel is in an old building which was not purpose built as a hotel, so don't expect the conveniences of a modern hotel. Although we had an en-suite bathroom, it really was just a corner section of the room which had been enclosed, so was small, with a noisy fan. However as that was our expectation, it was only a minor drawback.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            The location was excellent for our purposes, being in walking distance of the venue we were attending, but also being near good shops and the Subway. The staff were excellent, always helpful and friendly

            The only jarring note was the food litter under the bed and in a drawer of the bedside cabinet

            I stay here when visit Glasgow. It's spotless and friendly. Basic but with everything you need and good breakfast.

          • Single
            9.2

            Charlie and Sandra are great and really helpful. The location is great, around 15 minutes to city centre by subway. Breakfast is tasty and everyone is friendly. Would definitely recommend!

          • Single
            7.4

            Host was excellent: polite, very friendly & helpful. Room was clean. It was next to the dining room, but I didn't hear a single noise in the morning, so must be soundproof! :) Free parking space in the back (only room for 3 cars, so come early ;) )

            Location might not be excellent, but that did not really bother me.

          • Single
            9.6

            Very convenient hotel for the University of Glasgow area and the West End, close to many other amenities, including the Kelvingrove and the Botanical Gardens. Good breakfast, room was extremely clean, and the staff was very welcoming and helpful. A great place!

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Staff were polite and helpful.The bedroom was huge and spotlessly clean and the dining room has an amazing ceiling and a view over Gt Western Road as it's on the first floor. Breakfast was tasty and plenty of it! We found the location perfect for getting to the sights of Glasgow with a choice of public transport on the doorstep. The lovely Botanic Gardens are a few minutes walk and Byres Rd has lots of great places to eat/drink. Especially useful in a city was the little car park at the rear.

            It was a little bit tricky finding the car park as it's off a tiny lane and not that obvious, but that's all!

          • Couple
            9.6

            The hotel is in a lovely part of Glasgow, within several minutes of the lovely botanical gardens. Our room was clean and comfortable with a large bathroom. Breakfast included fresh fruit, fruit juice, cereal, yoghurt, as well as a full breakfast and toast, and service was quick and efficient.

            The hotel is on a main road, so there was some traffic noise. Earplugs sorted the problem though. I am sure this is not the norm, but we arrived in our room to find no toilet paper. I had come to Glasgow to visit my parents, and so I got a couple of rolls from my Mum. Service was excellent, but it would have been even better with a smile every now and then. I am being really picky though!

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            Excellent location for the University area. Good cooked breakfast, clean facilities, friendly staff.

            Breakfast finishes quite early which may not suit some weekend travellers!
