Watched an emotional performance of Evita in the King's Theatre on Tuesday 15 May 2018 with friends. Decided to book bed and breakfast rather than rushing for last night train in The Victorian House Hotel as within walking distance to the King's. Mind you going down the steep hill easy, climbing back up is not for the faint hearted! Got my heart pumping by the time I got to the top. Ate pre-theatre dinner in The Griffin, very reasonable, two courses for under £15, chose the fish, chips and mushy peas followed by meringue with raspberries and cream, delicious. B&B has comfortable bed and a quiet room, slept well and after hearty full English breakfast walked to Kelvingrove Park and spent the afternoon in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum - for free. Haven't visited it for years, so much to see will have to visit again. Listened to organ recital drinking coffee and enjoyed art exhibits. Decided to take bus back into the city, only £1.60, then caught train home feeling relaxed and ready to plan next trip.

10 to 15 minutes walk into the city centre from this Renfrew Street guest house. I was there for a conference so just used it for sleeping and breakfast (which was very varied and plentiful).

It's a basic guest house but what it lack in amenities it makes up for in cleanliness, charm and helpful staff. I was in Room 6 that overlooked the main street and found it surprisingly quiet.

There was a very international atmosphere in the breakfast in the mornings at breakfast.

Room Tip: I was in a room on the first floor at the top of the stairs but it wasn't too noisy

One hotel. Just 10 munutes walk from the main centre, bus and coach station, queen street rail station and 5 mins further to Central train station.

Looks good from the front. Nice front garden. By its very name it will be traditional with an old fashioned layout. Low price including breakfast gives you an indication not to expect the world. In terms of politeness the staff were all that too. Helpful map of central glasgow provided and advice on places to eat as no evening meals are provided. Given a family sized room against a twin room. There is a 24 / 7 vending machine for snacks and general essentials.

The room was spacious and comfortable. There was some noise from other rooms being more down to soundproofing than noisy guests. This is the first hotel I have ever stayed in that has not provided even a tiny container of shampoo. If you are going to provide precise lined up bathroom floor tiling that drops a step then make the step clear and put a clear warning of step notice on the wall. The surface area from shower to entry door was on the long side. With a v small amount of water on base of feet slipping is easy because there is no safety walkway or bath mats. I fell luckily sustaining heavy bruising but luckily no serious injury. It could have been worse. So too could it have been bad for the person travelling with me who experienced a fall in a similar place to me.

The bedroom is cleaned as we stayed two nights. The milk sachets used on the first night were not replaced for the second night. It's a little detail but detail makes a difference.

The common parts of the property require substantive modernisation. The carpets although not a trip hazard are in a poor condition. Replacement and general redecoration is needed. It cannot go on and on being left.

The general condition of the meal room is better. The ceiling is a bit patchy. The choice of foods available from the cold buffet were good. The hotel also offers kippers and smoked haddock. Dissapointedly and not just in this hotel there was no home cooked traditional porridge on the menu. The cooked breakfast element was a big disappointment. Do you have to serve turkey bacon? Serve continental style smoked sausage yes for those visitors from the continent who want that but what about the standard sausages for a larger number of customers who would want this. The drinks were fine and other cold breakfast items too.

The owners need to be looking at redecoration and carpet replacement. The breakfast menu required tweaking. A little shampoo, just enough for a shower per person per night. Charge one pound extra per room per night by providing it. A well placed hazard warning or provision of bath mats. A teaspoon in the bedroom to stir cups of tea

This place has things going for it but it just needs to make improvements.

Managed to pick up a king room with en-suite for £24 which i was very happy about. I checked in at about 1.15 but was told my room wouldn't be available until 1.30/2. Was disappointed I didn't receive any prior communication regarding this.

When I did get to the room, it was pretty nice, fairly clean, had everything required and enjoyed my stay. Even though the room was on the main street, I didn't feel there was much noise, and just a warning that the King bed is infact 2 singles pushed together so you can feel the gap in between.

Breakfast had a fairly wide selection but was disappointed to not see the smoked haddock and kippers that are advertised and my potato scone was burnt underneath.

I would probably stay again since it was still very good value, but would like to see just a couple of small improvements.

Stayed: April 2018, travelled solo
