“Grotty and dirty”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

As we frequently visit Glasgow, we stayed in various guest houses in the West End. The location of The Georgian House is great. It is just of Byres Road and thus on a great location for a good night out.

Apart from the location, there is absolutely no positive remark we can make about The Georgian House. We booked a room for 2 nights at a rate of 75 GBP a night for two persons. Upon arrival at the hotel we did not get welcomed at all, but were directed straight to the payment terminal by the hotel manager.

After we paid for 2 nights we were directed to the top floor of the hotel (if I recall correctly room 8). What a dirty and grotty this room was; it looked like it has never been cleaned at all: piss stains on the bathroom floor (I kid you not, see the pictures!), holes in the bathroom floor and dirty marks everywhere. Furthermore, although the room was on the main drag (which is Great Western Road; a very busy street) the windows simply did not shut (see pictures). You will therefore be kept awake all night by traffic noises etcetera.

The room did not get cleaned at all during our stay (which is not really a surprise as they do not seem to bother cleaning at all) and we did not get clean towels.

We do not recommend anybody to stay at The Georgian House. There are many other great hotels in the surroundings of The Georgian House that are better (and mostly cheaper as well)!

Room Tip: We stayed in the room on the top floor (I believe it was room 8). Do not stay there!

With only one person to look after the place what do you expect. Think about what you paid.

The accommodations are but faded but clean. Any shortcomings were compensated by a warm welcome and generous breakfast. Can't beat location right by the botanic garden and shopping district. Would recommend to youngish couples; maybe not families.

A one night stay for £50 was great value. Central for Hillhead area and a v comfy bed. But the customer service manual has yet to be delivered and it took a while to get my prepaid voucher accepted.

Carpets in the room were stained and dirty, the furniture scratched and the shower seal leaky. A ringing phone outside my room added to the ambiance.

But you get what you pay for and this just about did the job. I didn't fancy breakfast.

This hotel was a find through booking.com, but you can book direct and get great rates. The meet and greet and check in were informal and professionally friendly. A contradiction I know, but the business side of check in was professional, whilst the meet and greet and help in providing knowledge to explore the area were very helpful. Our daughter was finishing her 2nd year at University so we were shattered and whilst the weather was stunningly hot, it made us a bit fraught.The hotel was just what was needed. Huge room,airy, very clean and fresh. High traditional ceilings. Slightly dated, but felt right for the building. Relaxed cereal based breakfast or Continental style with cold meats. Parking on site but not many spaces; however pay and display parking at the front. The hotel is off the main road, making it quite private for parking. It's rear totally overlooks the Botanical Gardens. We will go back.

Room Tip: There is no lift, but the stairs are wide and not too steep. The room was at the rear, so it looked...

We arrived later in evening than planned. Had called ahead to notify. Very nice accommodating young man (sorry we neglected to get his name) checked us in & offered to help us with bags etc... & offered suggestions for dinner locations. Good location as it is easy walk to town offerings. Parking very limited here & odd & cars had to be shuffled around to accommodate. The room left a lot to be desired. Mattress was very uncomfortable & in great need of replacement - an antique! Room not very clean either especially the bathroom. Our room faced Great Western Road which was noisy all night. Between the road noise & mattress, did not sleep well at all. Breakfast - a joke! Mostly just cold cereal & toast. Very very little offerings. Coffee making ingredients were empty. Clean dishes seemed to be mixed in with dirty on a serving table. Bizarre. No one was attending to the breakfast either. Same Young man pleasantly checked us out & helped with bags. Would recommend him, but not the accommodation nor would we stay here again. Rank it at the bottom of the 5 places we stayed in Scotland.
