    Historical Traveler Reviews Fraser Suites Glasgow

    An excellent choice

    from

    Just returned from 5 nights at the Frasier Suites in Glasgow, and we really liked it. The room was very spacious (about 450 sq. ft., plus a good-sized bathroom) and nicely furnished. The CD/stereo and DVD player were nice touches. Having the option to do light cooking (using ready-made meals from Marks & Spencer, about 3-4 blocks away) came in very handy. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Our room overlooked the parking garage in back - not pretty, but at least there was no street noise.

    The only negative was that the floors squeaked a bit and we could hear the person in the room above us walking across the floor. We could also hear his/her television slightly. This was not really a problem for us, but if one's neighbors were rude (as in one of the earlier posts here) it could easily become one.

    Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would definitely stay there again.

    Nice facility but lots of street noise

    from

    This facility is in a pretty good location. You can walk very easily to Buchanan Street for shopping and most everywhere else. The area itself is developing and there were some very good resturants around the corner on Wilson Street. Even a Pancho Villa that was good enough to satisfy that Mexican food craving we all tended to have toward the end of our trip.

    The hotel facility itself was very nice, recently done. We had the 2BR deluxe apt for 160GBP per nite. Very good value. Continental breakfast was very basic but down at the corner of Albion and Trongate there is BLUU which has an excellent Sunday brunch.

    Since the facility is not A/C having the windows open was mandatory for us. There is a cathedral bell tower right across Trongate street that starts ringing about 7am or so. We are not morning people so that was irritating. Also, the seagulls start screaming about the same time, sometimes earlier. This isnt your normal bird chirping, this was downright screeching--loud, frequent screeching. The last nite there we asked the front desk about what we could do. They suggested we shut the windows and provided fans for each of the bedrooms.

    Wonderful

    from

    My boyfriend and I spent two very happy nights at this hotel. I say hotel, but in fact, it's a single building containing many serviced apartments of a very high quality. Our apartment was very roomy, had contemporary decor, but most of all was spotlessly clean. It featured a kitchenette, which was fully equipped with fridge, cooker and utensils. The bed was large and comfy. The bathroom was also spotless, with bath and power shower. The room also had an internet connection point, a CD/DVD player and Sky. We had breakfast there too, and I can also recommend that.

    The staff we encountered were all very friendly and polite. A maid service is provided, so although your accomodation looks like a self-catering apartment, it comes with the benefit of having all the hard work done for you.

    I would recommend this place mainly to couples and business people. I'm not sure whether other rooms have more than one bed, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to families. I would certainly stay here again though.

    Good facilities - shame about the drunks

    from

    Plus points: location - 10 mins walk from city centre, lots of cafes, shops, supermarkets nearby; nearby car park - 30 secs walk, 6 pounds overnight, enter and exit as many times as you like; very spacious room; firm bed; well-equipped kitchenette.

    Minus points: poor management of noisy guests - wakened at 3.00 am by drunk neighbours playing very loud music; 4 complaints to staff and 2 hours later, the music thudded on.

    Conclusion: I expect a hotel to observe a reasonable noise curfew so, despite the plus points, I wouldn't stay here again.

    Highly Reccomend

    from

    Absolutley brilliant suites, highly reccomended !

    The suites are close by all amenities and a 2 minute walking distance to argyle street and about 5 minute walk to buchanan street.

    One Night Only!

    from

    First time for ages that I had stayed in a service appartment and while it was very central and staff were very helpful (Even though they accidently charged us price + deposit) Which was fixed very quickly.

    We booked directly through the glasgow website which had VERY diffrent prices to the parent company website.

    Our only complaint was we could hear the people walking about in the room above. There was no street noise to speek of.

    Convenient & New

    from

    Great apartment hotel. Clean and modern rooms, DVD players, kitchens. Only minor complaint is absence of ice or coffee-mnakers.

    Very very convenient for Glasgows Merchant City, George Square and central shopping. Large indoor car park nearby and easy to get to. Recommended and already booked to go back.

    Highly Recommended

    from

    I am just back a few weeks from a stay in this aparthotel. I was there in August 2004 with my 3 children. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment The kids were thrilled with the luxurious fit out - large screen tv, stereo. The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated in soft modern style. 4 Star standards. The kitchen had everything you could ask for. There are plenty of supermarkets around the corner including a M & S. Scores of really excellent restaurants with great atmosphere. The only drawback of the room was the awful view of a carpark. Ask for a room not facing into the car park if it would bother you. However, the value for money (105 per night) and the excellent location more than made up for it. Worth noting is the fact that the streets all around the hotel are being paved so there is a lot of building activity! The people in Glasgow are the friendliest I have met in a long time. A breath of fresh air. Found GOMA rather disappointing as there is not much there at the moment. Science museum kept the 3 kids, aged 14, 11 and 6 going for about 5 hours - well worth a visit if you have kids. Merchant City is the bar and restaurant area. The shopping end is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel.

    Highly recommended

    from

    I stopped there in March 2004 and the apartment was extremely well equipped, spacious, tastefully decorated and absolutely spotless.

    The apartments are in a good location (the Merchant City part of Glasgow) with lots of good bars and restaurants nearby. But I'd ask for one that doesn't overlook the busy Trongate as this was a bit noisy sometimes.

    Staff were friendly and helpful.

    There's a secure car park very close by and you can get a 10% discount for this.

    Highly recommended.

    Highly recommend - full kitchen & king bed

    from

    Finding a king-sized bed in anything but a big chain hotel was difficult, but Somerset has it and much more. They converted from apartment building to hotel about a year ago, and so the rooms are studios or small apts. Updated modern (spare and tasteful, not elaborate) furnishings included TV, stereo, fully equipped kitchen, stove top range, half fridge, dishwasher. Very tall ceilings added a feeling of spaciousness.Complimentary bfst was a nicely done continental with seating at individual tables off the lobby. We had croissants and jam, coffee, fresh fruit.Immaculate. Well located, we walked to shopping and restaurants, People's Palace, Glasgow Cathedral. It's just off Argyll on Albion Street, a block that is still undergoing a lot of refurbishment. Views out the big windows sucked, but who cares? I'd stay again for sure.

    ... nice because Jean and Linda were able to talk with others. Jean talked with a young woman from Georgia who taught business and marketing at a technical college. Jean impressed her with all of our travels. We had three tables for 40 people on the trip. Butch and I were at the end of the table at the window so there was no one next to us with which to talk. From the set menu, I had the prawn appetizer, the Sea Bass entree, and apple ...

    Ok, I am here to test your memory.

    Who remembers Anne? I mentioned her a few weeks ago in one of my Skye blogs.

    Anyway, today, I am catching up with her. In Glasgow.

    For, in typical Australian style, the second day of my birthday!

    But given my night out last night, I slept until 11.

    Which was good, because when I first woke at 8:30, I felt awful.

    But by the time 12 rolled around, I was good to go.

I ****** on one of them once, because the idea of my cells being on Cell Cell's cells interested me so..

    ... Roadie joined us after taking a while to find the car park which was unsigned. Lunch was good and we were ready for a sit down. We were to walk into Linwater Caravan Park this afternoon so this was the only meeting with the Roadie today. Boots were changed to walking shoes as the walking this afternoon was all on road. We said our goodbyes and as we had a further 5 miles to walk today and headed out crossing the A70 before taking a minor road towards Kirknewton. The terrain ...

Alex and I decided that we should check out the cathedral first because it would be closing soon, and then go over the bridge to the city of the dead once it was dark. I don’t see much point describing either the cathedral because I think the pictures do that pretty ...
