Historical Traveller Reviews of Corus Hotel Glasgow

Good value and location

from LUpchurch
We stayed in the hotel over Mayday holiday weekend. The rooms are on the small side, but were kept clean and the bed was very comfortable. The iron/ironing board is a useful addition. The hotel is pretty central and it is an easy walk to most of the tourist areas from it. The 1st stop of the airport bus gives you a 2 minute walk to the hotel.
Beware the 'executive' room upgrade. It really isn't worth it. It consists of the same room that you would have got anyway, but with a robe and slippers and a very cheap amenity pack thrown in. If you want a robe then I would suggest a trip to a local store and buy one then you can take it home legally at the end of your stay! Maybe the bar is busier away from the holiday period, but when we were there 10:00pm Saturday, it was dead and hotter than hell. We encountered 4 young girls who were taking their drinks up in the lift to their room, because they couldn't take the heat. We soon followed their advice and did the same.
At the moment Glasgow in that area is being rebuilt, and that part of Argyle St. is being singled out for extra work to bring it up to the same standard as the rest. How long this will last I'm not sure, but it was noisy.

Would Stay There Again

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at Corus with a group of friends for five nights in March of 2005. The hotel was going through renovations and I asked for an updated room. The service desk accomodated my request although I had booked the room through Expedia at a discounted rate. My friends did not request an updated room. Their rooms were a little dingy but clean and like mine ample in space.

I received a nice breakfast in my room in the morning simply by filling out a card left for me by housekeeping. The price was not exactly low, but for what I received - breakfast rolls, cereal, juice, tea, toast, fruit, yogurt, assorted jams, etc. - I didn't consider it ridiculous. The breakfast buffet in the cafe/bar served a really nice breakfast on the mornings I opted out of room service. The assortment was good and the quality good. Dinner was slightly expensive but the quality was still better than I've experienced in similar hotels.

The beds were very comfortable and while the room was warm at times during the night, I simply removed the thick comforter from the bed to take care of the problem.

The hotel is a five minute walk from Glasgow Central station. This is very handy when traveling elsewhere. The only problem I could see was not being close to some of the nicer pubs, bars and restaurants. After a short trip to northern England, I returned to Glasgow but stayed at another hotel. The Victorian was much more convenient for going out and enjoying the city.

I would stay at The Corus again if the Victorian was booked up - which is exactly what happened when making my reservations this trip. The front desk was very accomodating - even letting me check in hours early - and the rooms were comfortable.

Nice, Clean, and Wonderful Price

from A TripAdvisor Member
Looking for a cheap place to stay, this is it. We managed to get a great rate in March and it was just what we were looking for. The rooms were small, plan on living out of our suitcase, but extremely clean and cutely decorated. We found the staff helpful and loved the free left luggage service. We walked everywhere from the hotel, but other transportation is readily available. Would definitely recommend this to the traveler looking to save a few dollars but still looking for the nice room.

Beware on-line booking with 3rd parties

from gst1
I was one of 10 lads travelling to this hotel for a weekend in Glasgow.

5 twin rooms were booked and paid for about 2 months in advance using one of the many travel booking sites. (expedia was ours)

Beware that using this method of booking maybe cheap but it doesn't guarantee you a room at the hotel.

After arriving in 2 seperate groups we were told that the hotel was over booked and therefore they couldn't accomodate us.

We were split up into 2 seperate hotels miles out of the city centre.

So I can tell you that the hotel is only a 5 min walk from Central station and therefore handy for everything in central Glasgow. The reception handled everything easily and without fuss.

I can say in their favour, the Corus hotel gave us a free tab on taxis in and out of the city centre from our new hotel which turned out to be very handy!

nice hotel/nice price

from A TripAdvisor Member
stayed at this hotel 14-16 jan, got a deal with expedia at £37.00 per night per room.the weekend before the hotel had featured extensively in the national press when a soldier committed suicide there.Dont let this put you off.Rooms are very nice, small but clean.Handy for Glasgow Central station, which is only 5 mins away.The shopping is also very close by, just further along Argylle st.All in all, a nicely located hotel

Unbelievable !!!

from dubford71
Yes, unbelievable, not the hotel but the price of the breakfast.
Is this the dearest breakfast in scotland????
We sat down to breakfast (after an overnight stay here) which was not included in the price, only for the waitress to tell us it would be £10.75 for a hot b/fast or £7.50 for a cold one. We almost fell over before we got up and left !!!.This was a shame as otherwise our stay could not be faulted. Clean rooms, friendly check in staff and handy location. Really handy for that cafe 200 metres away for a cooked b/fast at real prices.

Dreadful hotel - never again

from casswife
We stayed for 2 nights on 3rd & 4th December 2004. The rooms are cramped with no proper space for storing clothes. Our room backed on to the lift shaft which was noisy all night. As it was hot & stuufy we opened the window to discover the air conditioning/heating unit was outside our window & noisy, too. There was a function on in the dining room and though we'd booked D,B&B we had to eat in the smoky bar. The party noise continued below our room until 1.30am but there were no other rooms to move to. The 2nd night proved to be just as "eventful" with the fire alarm being set off at 5am. The evening meals were good but the breakfasts were terrible and our room had not been vaccuumed at all.
We complained to the front desk on arrival and again when leaving but they weren't in the least bit interested - we were just grateful thet we'd booked a cheaper deal - we would have been extremely upset had we paid the full tariff. All in all, the only person we could recommend in the entire hotel was Anton - he worked in the restaurant & was friendly, helpful and pleasant. We could never recommend this place to anyone.
Management Response from 377Argyle
As guests of the hotel as it was a number of years ago I would like to extend a warm welcome to you to spend a weekend with us to see how we have transformed the hotel. No part of the hotel has been untouched with all rooms having a complete refit, new lifts installed, we have a Costa coffe shop on the ground floor and a contempary bar & restaurant on the 1st floor. I would extend to you and a complimentary weekend in return for your feedback on our progress.

Difficult to fault!

from polemonium
Having stayed in several 'chain' hotels in Glasgow over the past few years, Corus proved to be the best all round, so far! Although no parking is provided and the hotel sits in what looks like a rather dodgy (though clearly fast-regenerating) part of the city, the room we had was as comfortable and well-appointed as one could expect for £65 (which included an excellent buffet breakfast). The staff were friendly and efficient - we even received an apology (!) when we handed in one of their 'repairs' cards to alert them to the (rather trivial) fact that one of the light bulbs in the room needed replacing. We will definitely stay there again - what more can one say by way of recommendation?!

re booking!!!

from Torianna
This hotel looks alright from the outside and in, although it's often used the local prostitutes.

We demanded that our company moved us right away, I recommend the Novotel just up the road.

Bad late night check-out experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at the Corus in Glasgow in September 2004. The rooms were nice, and clean-housekeeping staff were nice, and hotel was fairly central to shoppping and restaurants. Avoid the high priced breakfast buffet (unless included in your room price)-it was expensive and inedible. Check in staff at reception were fine, but when we tried to check out at 2:00 am on September 25th to catch our flight, the rude counter staff (stocky, bald man) announced quite rudely that we could not check out. No explanation was forthcoming until we said we had to leave to catch a plane. He then advised it was because the computer system was off line at that time of the night (even though we had confirmed earlier to make sure it would be no problem to check out at that hour). We had to leave our credit card account open. We asked him to call a taxi for the airport-and it appeared from the telephone conversation that ensued that he called a buddy of his. A too-small, unmarked car appeared ten minutes later, which could not accommodate our luggage. We had to go out into the street to hail a passing cab to take us to the airport. Too bad, as this experience left us with an unpleasant last impression.
