Exploring Glasgow

Our hotel was right in the centre of city so it only took a few steps before we were in George Square being overlooked by the towering City Hall. We had a quick breakfast in a nearby cafe and by the time we finished the sun had came out - quite rare in Glasgow!!

We walked up the High Street to the medieval Glasgow Cathedral, the only …

We drove through to Glasgow in the morning, primarily to let Maria see the city that David says is the best in Scotland but also to see his parents off on holiday.

Rangers were playing a Quarter Final Scottish Cup game against Albion Rovers at Ibrox and we managed to get tickets. Maria wasn't sure what to expect from a Scottish football …

No luck at all getting the 'wireless available throughout the hotel' working on either my phone or the netbook. Al was ok with his phone so could check emails etc.

At least the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was good. It was great actually, and the girls in the restaurant were yet again lovely.

Stirling and Glasgow. The trip ends here

August 29 We bid farewell to Oban. On the way through the Trossachs we stop in Callander to see the "bull of the Highlands", a huge bull indigenous to this area of the planet. The animal is awesome: veeery big, with long hair, big horns and it's taller than me! I don't dare to approach a lot, just in case... Then we arrive at Stirling and visit its …

... view was spectacular. Thanks a lot.

I grabbed lunch at a really nice pub that offered a two course lunch for 5.95GBP, which is quite a good deal. My belly full, I moved on to explore an area of town that the gallery worker had told me was quite nice. I must have missed it, but I ended up in a giant park. Walking through the park I happened upon the Glasgow People's Palace. Built in 1898 in order to attempt to bring some culture to the overcrowded and downtrodden neighborhood ...

    Ok for an overnight stay

    We paid next to nothing for our very short stay at the hotel. We came in from Troon late evening and left early the next morning for Oban so the hotel was really nothing more than a bed to sleep in.

    Convenient location for Queen Street Station and Merchant City bars an restaurants.

    Hotel booking engine we used had somehow got my name wrong with reservation even though I had booked through member site. The receptionist sorted that out easily.

    We knew the room would be mall, but maybe a bit smaller than we expected. Noisy street so we had to close the window at some stage in the early morning to shut out the shouting drunks on the street below.

    At the price we paid we have no complaints.

    Not That Bad

    from

    Booked to stay in this hotel in April 2006, had already booked before reading trip advisor so was thinking about cancelling but didn't in the end.

    We had just booked for a weekend break away in Glasgow. The room we got was ok, a bit on the small side but this is normal in the city centre. It was very clean and looked fresh. Maybe they had painted it. We didn't spend much time in our room anyway.

    The service was good, the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was the best I have ever in a hotel with very attentive staff.

    I didn't think it was all that bad and would probably stay there again.

    Unfortunetly all reviews are correct

    from

    Myself and my friend were going over for a concert and she booked the hotel, when she told me the name I checked it on Trip Adviser and was a little apprehensive but said as long as its clean and central we will be okay.

    Unsatisfactory

    from

    Prior to staying at this Ramada on a business trip, I read the other reviews as I wanted to check what it was like. I was hoping the reviews were wrong but unfortunately not - and I did give it a chance.

    Hotel should be closed down

    from

    The air quality in this hotel is very poor and it will mess with your sinuses mine became irritaed after being in the room for a few minutes and was moved to another where the manager was able to open the window. There is no air systems in the hallways and rooms and the windows are impossible to open. I know the hotel would be shut if the health and safety department checked the air quality. Also the double rooms are tiny just enough room to walk around the bed. You have been warned.

    Great location, but very poor hotel

    from

    Stayed in this hotel for one night in June2005. I will not be staying there again as it could do with a complete makeover. As soon as we stepped in through the old dated revolving door we knew we had made a major mistake. The dark musty reception area was the first indication that there was worse to come. Our room (telephone box size) was dark, really grubby and the wallpaper was peeling from the walls, and the carpet was filthy. The bathroom was mouldy around the bath .The net curtain was also filthy and the view was something else! Apart from the central location there are no positives about this hotel.

    Not recommended

    from

    This hotel has a good location but I wish I'd checked with Trip Advisor before booking! The double bedroom was like a phone booth and the bed was only accessible from one side. The bathroom was dark with 1970s chocolate brown tiled walls and in need of a DIY expert. The view from the bedroom window was of a dirty courtyard with walls covered in bird droppings. The good things were, the staff were very helpfull and the breakfast was great (the best eggs ever). But I would never go back. We have nicknamed it "Colditz"

    Small/Very Noisy

    from

    I checked into this hotel on Sat 14th May for 1 night only, thank goodness.

    Reception area- a very strong smell of fish cooking./not very clean

    Rooms- they are like shoe boxes and also not very clean. But the crowning glory is that if you are unfortunate enought to be at the side of the building that is adjancent to the Corinthian Bar/Nightclub you can have your own rave in your room,whether you want it or not !! You can hear all the music VERY Clearly and it goes on to 3AM. !!!

    There is no way you can get any sleep in these rooms.

    And you dont even get an apology from the hotel.

    Unless you are an insomniac--Avoid this hotel at all costs

    Terrible dirty small

    from

    Hotel rooms: Double room was tiny for two people , decor bad, carpets old and unclean, shower broke. When we went to our room at night we didnt realise a nightclub was beside the hotel and the music played to well after 3am all weekend, vibrating through the room. Then the noise of the people leaving continued after the music finished. FULL BREAKFAST: not organised chef brought out food at different times all choices not out together. Car park small and a distance from the hotel. Very disappointing weekend break as details in brouchures do not tell the truth and misled

    Good Value But Drawbacks

    from

    Excellent city centre location and good value for money. Staff Helpful and friendly. Rooms are clean and tidy but decoration a bit run down and grubby.

    Rooms were tiny and bed could only be accessed from one side only. View

    was of a rundown back yard. Car Parking is at a premium and is located

    at rear of building with insufficient parking bays to number of rooms.

    As with any city centre hotel there can be some disturbance caused by

    late night revellers returning to rooms and poor sound proofing does

    not help. Buffet breakfast was excellent with attentive waiting staff.

    A wonderful place to stay

    from

    My boyfriend and I recently stayed in Inverness for 2 nights and after staying at a quite disappointing hotel in Edinburgh we were pleasantly surprised with the Ramada Jarvis. The hotel from the outside is dreary but once inside it is elegantly decorated. The staff is courteous and prompt. Our room was enormous and the decoration was very modern. It was at least 20x20 room with plently of space. The bathroom was also spacious. The "ARTS" bar located within the hotel offers a decnt lunch menu and the bar staff are friendly & efficient. We only ate in the restaurant for breakfast but as with any other European hotel, just stick with cereal & toast. The car park was located on the riverside of the hotel and there was an entrance located right there which was a nice surprise. They had had a gymnasium, pool, & sauna. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends & family.
