Not the best Premier Inn I have stayed in. Quite Noisy between rooms, I could hear the neighbours snoring, let alone talking. But handy location, and realistic price makes it worthwhile. I am unlikely to go there again, but if the price is right it may suit you. Housekeeping were pretty lax.

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn Glasgow City Centre - Charing Cross
The perfect place to stay! Right beside the tube station which was so handy after a tiring day out and about in glasgow. Only 1 flaw in our stay the fire alarm went off twice in 2 days but that apart everything was spot on. As a hotel bar manager myself and my partner a hotel receptionist we could not fault this place on 1 thing apart from the fire alarm but even at that at least we knew it worked!! We will be going back!!
I went to the premier travel inn in Saint Georges Square recently with 2 of my friends and I have to say we had the time of our lives. The hotel was basic enough but clean and a perfect base for exploring the sights of glasgow (believe me ladies there are many). Glasgow seems to be a popular place for hen and stag parties and there were a few groups staying in our hotel. I would thoroughly recommend the Premier Travel Inn and Scotland for anyone interested in a fun and lively weekend away!
Just as good 2nd time around
I was nervous of visiting this hotel second time around when I realised it was now a Travel Inn. All went really well. 14 if us booked 7 rooms between us. 2 rooms were very small and claustrophobic but when we asked if we could change to the larger style, there was no problem at all. The staff were very friendly. The rooms were very clean and bright. The bar and restaurant were more than adequate. The location of this hotel is perfect for shoppers & socialisers because it is so central. Breakfast is great. Plenty for Vegans and Vegetarians, they even serve Vegan sunflower spread! Overall, Great value for money.
Well, recently i stayed in glasgow for 2 nights, my female friend was on a budget and as we were splitting cost, we decided on this hotel...when we got there, checkin was ok, nothing special, went to the room and the room was so small! and the windows would not open at all, went down to ask to get someone to have a look at it as there was no airconditioning, i was told that it was working before and that i had broken the window, so i walked out of the hotel, when i came back it was open about 5cm, the bedsheets smelled like hadnt been washed in days and half the channels on the tv didnt work, In the morning the staff were nice and helpful, but thats about the only good thing i could say.....and the lifts made a few people feel ill
Good budget choice
You get what you pay for with the Premier Lodge - I wouldn't advise it if you are going to be spending any time in the hotel but for a cheap place to stay while you sample all Glasgow has to offer its fine. It struck me as the kind of place stag groups would stay, the naked man running round at 1am confirmed this, but there were no noisy guests so it wasn't a problem. If you are a light sleeper though try not to get a room facing the motorway as the traffic goes by all night.
The rooms and most of all the bed were tiny, but it had everything we needed - just no frills. Staff were friendly even though we checked out very late on a Sunday morning! I also wouldn't advise eating here as there are so many fantastic places near-by.
Definitely a good option if you are on a budget.
Very good value for money
Very good value of money given the usual price for such a central location. Very close to Sauchiehall Str and only a short walk away from the SECC and the city centre. Rooms are beautifully arranged and have all the amenities available including an ironing room on one of the floors. One word of warning though - don't pay for breakfast at the hotel - they charge exorbitant prices - just outside the hotel there is a nice little shop run by an elderly and a younger lady (possibly her daughter) with really cheap and wholesome rolls, sandwiches, coffee - the lot.
Hotel was very good value - a special offer from their website which worked out at £33 per night for a double room. Ask for a room not facing the motorway - can be very noisy. Room was perfectly adequate with a comfortable bed. Very convenient location. Staff friendly and efficient. They don't store luggage but the main train and bus stations do.
Best Value Ever
I visit Glasgow on a very regular basis and generally stay here at the Premier Lodge. In terms of service levels its totally adequate, clean with friendly staff and is well situated in the City Centre with superb transport links;
That apart, it must be the best value hotel in Europe; 90% of the times I have been there have stayed on two nights for one making the cost £23 per night (for a double or twin!).
Godd value hotel
The Premier Lodge Glasgow Centre is a good value limited service budget hotel. I stayed for five nights starting March 11. I had a single room, with a double bed, that was comfortable and of adequate size for one person. I don't think they sell this sized room as a double, but it would be very cramped for two people. A true non-smoking room. A lower floor room facing east, away from the motorway, letting in negligible traffic or city noise. The brief horn sound of trains entering adjacent Charing Cross station was audible. The train from this station (2 minutes to Queen St. Station and 4 minutes to High Street station) was very convenient if you don?t want to do the 10 - 15 minute walk.Breakfast (?6.50 for traditional, ?4.50 for continental) was above average. Having to walk through the stale smokiness of the bar to get to the dining room was off-putting. Makes me assume the bar must be popular at night - surprising given the vast bar, pub and club choices on nearby Sauchiehall Street.Check-in and check-out was quick, efficient and friendly.
Premier rating for the premier lodge
Excellent location, super friendly staff - very family orientated - food was yummy!!! very reasonable, rooms were high standard

... I have connected with fellow travellers to the level where it feels like we have been friends for years! While constantly saying goodbye to friends you make can be extremely hard, knowing that you may perhaps run into them again in another city or even realising that fact you know people from all over the world counterbalances this feeling.
So in saying this I actually extended my initial travel plans by 5 weeks so I could spend more time traveling around the UK catching up ...
... We thought we'd better get it one last time seems we were leaving Scotland that afternoon.
While we were in town, we ventured up to the St. John's Castle in the main street. It had a centralised spiral staircase that lead up to a roof top area that used to be an exercise yard for the prisoners who were incarcerated there. The climb up was steep but upon arrival the air was crisp but the view was spectacular!
We had a short bus trip over to Cairnryan ...
... pretty city, in Rajasthan, which is the land of the kings, lords, palaces and temples. It’s a hot state coasting in the mid 40’s over summer and not much rain apart from the monsoon seasons leading to all sorts of water shortages. Udaipur however is different, surrounded by mountains and home to 7 beautiful lakes, some of which will dry up by the end of next month. It’s also where Octopussy was filmed which also encouraged Tim to test his Bond skillz on the bike. ...
... be able to boast about Holly’s family coming from Prestwick! I was then taken aback when the bar lady offered us free spaghetti bolognese each! I couldn’t believe it, I asked what the catch was. The bar lady then proceeded to looked quite taken aback by my inability to believe what was happening. I exclaimed how we had not received anything for free in the last three months and I just could not believe it was free. She then ...
... once the waves came up over the lower bell. We all would have liked to stay but the tide was rising ever so slowly and the bells remained silent and unmoved. The air was heavenly. A couple had their tent pitched on the beach, another couple lay on a blanket, a family who hiked over the hills to arrive here were the only others we shared this gorgeous vista with. Only in the Outer Hebrides!
We stopped to check out a memorial plaque on our way home. Who would have thought this ...
