Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn Glasgow City Centre - George Square
Highly recommended !
I recently visited Glasgow and needed a hotel for 3 nights. After reading TripAdvisor reviews of other hotels, I decided to stay at the Premier Travel Inn on the basis that you ususlly know what you're getting. I'm very glad I did. I was booked into a family room overlooking a side street. The room was large, bright and modern with TV and coffee/tea making facilities. Perhaps most important of all, the bathroom was spotlessly clean. Like all city centre hotels, you do need to keep the windows closed to keep out the traffic noise. I didn't use the hotel restaurant simply because I like to venture out in the evening. The hotel breakfast cost just under £7 which may be a bit pricey if you're on a budget - I had beakfast at the nearby Cafe Wander (110a West George St) it's a gem ! Overall I think this hotel offers excellent value for money for your room - it's also within easy walking distance of the rest of the city.
Bright and Modern.
Having stayed in the Hill Street Travelodge earlier this year, we were more than happy with the Travel Inn. At just under 54GBPounds per room per night we were allocated a family room which for two of us was very spacious, well decorated and clean. Plenty of towels provided, tea and coffee in room and the usual tv channels. The bed was a good size and very comfortable. Unfortunately my wife took ill and we had to stay an extra night. Many thanks to the reception staff, who juggled the room allocations , so that we did not have to move, and also the chambermaid who was more than helpful . We found all the staff to be polite and pleasant from our first arrival to departure, this certainly helps especially if problems crop up. Buffet breakfast at just under 7 GBPounds was reasonable ,if you walk to Wetherspoons, Counting House, in George Square, you can have breakfast for half the price.
Drinks in the bar are not overpriced 2.40 GBP for a pint of lager, and Sky Sports on tv.
Rooms looking onto the street suffer from some street noise, rooms at the back may be preferred if you are a light sleeper. Soundproofing between rooms we found to be very good.
For price and location very hard to beat, we would go back to this accommodation.
Great location, excellent price
We stayed 3 nights in Premier Travel Inn and were very satisfied. The price was unbeatabale (50 pounds for a double), location very central, rooms reasonably spacious and very clean. Good size bathroom, responsive service - this hotel is an excellent value for money.
Booked this hotel for two nights only to be told when we arrived that we had changed the booking for the next night and they did not have any rooms. After speaking to the manager all he would say was the computer tells me you changed the booking which we had not. We asked him to see who had added the comments to the computer system after much debate he decided to check this and his face was a picture when he said "it says it was me" he then went on to say someone else must have used his login to change the details. They transfered us to the premier travel lodge at Charing Cross (which is a much better hotel) for one night. On returning to this hotel where we had booked non-smoking twin rooms we were given a double smoking room which we complained about and were told they were full and it was take it or leave it. They did however make a bed on the floor which was still totally unacceptable. They do offer a 100% customer satisfaction service so saying we were not even 1% satisified we did get a full refund. Be Warned
Loved premier lodge
a friend and myself came to Glasgow in April for a girls weekend. We stayed at the this hotel . The staff were fantastic the food was good. The rooms were large clean and very comfortable. The bar was brilliant we met lots of new friends. Will be using this hotel again.
My son and I stayed, one night, at the Travel Inn on George Street (George Square) in Glasgow. It was not what I expected. The carpet was clean but had many stains. The bathroom tiles were chipping and paint was chipped. They did not provide top sheets on the beds but only a duvet, which was very heavy and hot. The service was excellent, however. The employees brought two top sheets and a fan within 10 minutes of my request. The breakfast was outrageously priced so we chose not to eat there. It would have cost around $35 (American Dollars) for myself and my son. Instead, we just found a bakery on the street. However, don't expect to find restaurants serving full-breakfasts just by walking to and near George Square. Most true "restaurants" do not open until straight-up noon! I'm not sure if I would stay at the Travel Inn again, or not. Honestly, I would skip Glasgow altogether and take the 1.5 hour train ride to Edinburgh or take the train anywhere else. Glasgow was the typical "big city" with TONS of museums. I wanted to see SCOTLAND. Not tons of museums!
Just got back from a 2 night stay in this hotel and must say we couldn't have asked for more from a hotel. We've stayed at Glasgow twice before staying at the Ramada Jarvis and the Millenium Hotel, the Travel Inn was at least £150 less than these hotels and provided a cleaner, quieter room.
The location of the hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the central station, it is within easy reach of a number of bars and restaurants, and the shops are just around the corner.
The room we had was a triple room facing the main road. The room was clean and the bathroom immaculate. The noise from the main road meant windows had to be closed on an evening but what do you expect from a city centre hotel. We had a problem closing our window, but once we mentioned it to reception they had someone come and fix it immediately.
The breakfasts were ideal, so much choice and the service was top class.
Added extra to our trip was that the fire alarm went off early Friday evening, but we even got an apology from the hotel staff for this.
If I ever get the chance to visit Glasgow again this would my first choice of hotel, great value for money with the service of a five star hotel.
Cheap, clean, great location, superb breakfast, friendly staff, the list goes on. Stay here, it's great.
My husband and I have stayed in this hotel several times now, and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Glasgow. The location is perfect for shopping and going out in Glasgow, it's less than 5 minutes walk away from all the main shopping areas. The hotel itself is friendly. The rooms are all large and very clean. The bathroom's are also very clean. The decor is lovely in all the rooms. I cannot find a single thing wrong with the hotel!
The place to stay if you are on a budget
we stayed here for 2 nights over a weekend. its easy to find from central train station. we even had a nice glaswegian give us some quick directions.
the travel inn is very new and the reception staff are very helpful. we had a family room which was a very nice size and the bed was very comfy.
we had an evening meal in the slice restaurant with 8 of our friends its very reasonable priced and you get a huge plateful. all the food was lovely and we had a excellent waiter.
this hotel is centrally located if you are on a hen or stag night for west george street and the surrounding pubs and clubs. it is also very central to buchanan street and the shopping is brilliant.
in a nutshell why go to london when you can go to glasgow. The people are much more friendlier and the place has some culture about it.
I will be flying up here now instead of going to smelly old london and i will be staying at the Travel Inn the next time i visit too.

We arrived at 10:45 and had until 12:30, because most of the restaurants would not open until 11:30. I had, for the first time on this trip, placed my backpack under the bus. But I remembered that they wanted the tip envelopes early, so when we stopped I had Mark open the luggage area so I could retrieve the tip envelopes that I had finalized last night. I then gave ...
... juice. The juice came fairly quickly but was heavily diluted with water (tap or bottled, we don't know). The same can't be said for the food: we were still waiting almost an hour later. When they did turn up, the chips were only half cooked and the toastie was possibly the worst I've ever had. At least the view was good. The next morning we walked back down to the port (easier going downhill!) to catch a boat to the north of the island (to a town called Challapampa). We ...
