This hotel is pretty centralized to everything you would want to see in Glasgow. It's just a couple of blocks away from the high street where there are numerous shopping and dining options. It's a also only a 15 -20 minute walk to the Glasgow Cathedral and the theatre district. You can also easily walk to many of the numerous museums and other attractions. There is also a metro system which is pretty easy and straight forward to use, as well as the bus system. The hotel is literally next store to Glasgow Central Station so it's very easy to walk over to the station and get to the outlaying areas of Glasgow or Edinburgh. The hotel itself isn't a 5 star accommodation but it's clean and comfortable. The rooms are slightly small, but that's pretty much standard throughout Europe. Otherwise the room is clean. There are flat screen tv's with a decent variety of channels. The rooms facing the train tracks can be a bit noisy, although the window is pretty well insulated. The bathroom is actually a very decent size. The beds are decent; not terribly comfortable but do-able for a short stay. The service has been pretty good. Anytime I requested anything from the front desk (towels, coffee, etc), it came promptly. The front desk staff is very polite and helpful. I definitely would recommend this hotel.

Great Value and Location
After reading some of the other reviews, my partner & I were rather worried about staying here. We needed somewhere reasonable, near the train station & central as we were arriving in the evening (Friday 17th December) .....
We needn't have worried, it was the best £49 we spent in Glasgow !!
* Hotel was 5 mins walk from station on main street
* Front Desk - very polite and efficient
* Double Room was on 10th floor with an amazing view over the Clyde & South part of the city - spent a while just gazing out
* Room itself was spotlessly clean & all furnishing were in good condition & attractive
* No problems with heating/air con
* Residents Bar was open until 1.30pm with barfood avail until 10pm
* Bar prices & food seemed competitive prices
* For those on a budget, the Weatherspoons was a block away and did a fab Scottish breakfast for £2.49
* Shopping - 5 mins walk away
* Nightlife - likewise
Only downside was the Double bed, which seemed pretty small for 2 average sized people - hence 4/5 mark
We are very seasoned travellers, having been around the world to many cities in different countries & stayed at many grotty places - this was a pretty good standard - hopefully the other rooms in the hotel are as good as ours was
Would definitely stay here again.
Very good hotel. It's very clean, very central and the staff are very helpful
Phoned ahead to ensure I could book a table for restaurant and was evntually booked in at 7pm....Took 15 mins on phone to do this!! Arrived to be told restaurant was shut as there was a function on and I had to eat in the bar. Food went back to the chef 3 times!!! Forgot to put on pepper sauce etc..I'm not a fussy eater and I've never sent food back before. No room service for breakfast in a 3star???
Room clean and nice...obviously new, one complaint though toilet seats are plastic and don't stay up...guys know the difficulties that causes.
Disturbing to see train track and trains right outside window.
Location was fine for sight seeing. But as for staying the night, it was a little disturbing to see trains come in.
The real reason for the terrible rating is the frontdesk service. I had booked a TWIN room, but was given a room with one bed and small sofa sleeper instead. I was told this was because I did not call ahead because of late arrival, even though the room was already paid for.
Great Hotel very central
My daughter and I found this a great hotel, it was very clean and comfortable. The room had two single beds adequate storage (for us one night) small simple bathroom - small bath, but adequate shower, TV and tea/coffee makig facilities. Good ample breakfast.
Noise was not a problem but trains could be felt rather than heard. Ask for a room on the higher floor at the back. Yes that is right overlooking the train station, as street noise is supposed to be a problem towards the front of the hotel.
Bar very busy at weekends, not worth the trouble buts lots of entertainment, shops, eateries, close at hand.
Will use this hotel again especially for christmas shopping breaks and will stay longer. Hotel provides a room for late departures so as you can shop shop shop!!!! until the very last minute. Very important, staff are very friendly and helpful, just like the Irish
We spent three nights over a weekend here. The room was very clean and comfortable. It is central to the city centre and so we were able to walk to most places. Breakfast was adequate. We were woken up at 3 in the morning on the Saturday night/Sunday morning by rowdy neighbours returning from a good time out - still it is a party city, I suppose, but we were not amused to be woken again at 4 by the same neighbours playing loud music. Had a great view of the Clyde - would stay there again at this reasonable priced hotel after all its not their fault that we went to bed at 2a.m.
Only minor complaints--I'd stay there again
I stayed at the Jury's Inn in Dec. 2003. I had requested a smoking room but they had given me non-smoking--after I switched to a smoking room, it turned out to be on the 2nd floor with a ghastly view of the train tracks behind the hotel. lol Who cares, tho, really--I'm not in a foreign city to gaze out the window of the hotel anyway. The room was GIGANTIC and it was immaculately clean which was a real pleasure, however, there was not ONE drawer to be found and almost no closet space. It's a very strange design concept for a hotel room, no? It has air conditioning which is such a luxury in Glasgow and the staff was friendly. The location was great, with just a short walk to Argyle Street and if you go the other way out the front door, the Clyde is right there and it's just lovely at night!! Be a little bit vigilent while walking at night tho as Glasgow is a bit rough and tumble in spots! The best chippy in the world (I swear!) is right around the corner (under the overpass) with sort of a Soup Nazi staff! I had a great time and will go back to the Jury's Inn.

Stayed a week at the Jury's Inn while visting family in Glasgow in April 2004. You really couldn't get a better more convenient location for everything, (shopping, sightseeing and the central train station) are all within a minute's walk. Very simple, small rooms but modern and clean. Excellent friendly staff. Good price compared to other well located hotels (We paid 63 pounds a night). I would definately suggest the Jury's Inn on Jamaica St to anyone who asked me. Although if you want fancy this probably isn't the place for you but if you want clean, modern and well priced you can't beat it. P.S. bring an alarm clock they don't have any in the rooms
Jury's Inn is a basic hotel in a very good location. The rooms were small but comfortable and clean. The reception service was friendly and efficient. Bar food was excellent and good value for money. We would use the hotel again despite being next to the Glasgow Central Station.
Basic jurys inn glasgow
Family rooms are small and leave little room for manoeuvre, they are also very very noisy due to the trains constantly chugging in and out of the station. We asked to be moved and of course had to purchase 2 rooms as no other suitable rooms were available. However our second room actually did have space for a camp bed!! reception and housekeeping obviously do not liase. We also had to move the luggage ourselves after a day out at Ikea. All in all very basic, do take your own shower cap as none available. Oh yes, interconnecting doors between rooms did not open from both sides. Bar grubby on saturday evening as not enough staff working

... still lapping up the sales we ventured away from the city a little to check out a cathedral. While there I really had to go to the toilet but there wasnt one around. As we walked down the road I saw a museum which was free entry and we thought yes they will have a toilet! As we walked in we were approached by a lady with a handful of pamphlets when she asked "are you here to see the museum"? Not even knowing what museum it was ...

Alex and I have just finished our first week of placements and we felt it was about time we took advantage of what the council tax pays for by going to see some free things. The Botanical Gardens are right next to the University so it seemed like a good place to start. ...
... or valley of Glencoe is very much like driving through New Zealands south Island mountain country. At one point we stopped for photo's and upon boarding the bus a mob of red deer where spotted up under the bluffs on the side of the valley we had not been looking towards. We then travelled down out of the Highlands to Glasgow and the landscape rapidly changed to flatter land as we arrived.
Take care all

... it. One of the nicest I've seen. I was damn excited about seeing The Mars Volta again. Last time was in Melbourne almost a year ago to the day. I knew how good they were going to be and was getting shivers thinking about it. They came on about 8pm without warning and without support. They played for a wapping great 3 hours without a break!! And only then did they speak: "We've been told we have to stop now, we don't want to. We could ...
