Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Glasgow and in this hotel. Everyone was very kind and helpful. We had a courtesy upgraded to a club room overlooking George Square, which I loved. We saw the city awake and sleep. The conservatory bar was a nice experience, away from the Glasgow wind, which can be cold even in summer.

Un muy buen hotel en el corazon de Glasgow, cerca de tiendas y restaurantes.Por cierto hay un restaurante español muy cerca, y bastante bueno. Me encanta la cortesia escocesa.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Millennium Hotel

re better off in the Malmaison

from DarrylGould
This is by no means a bad hotel. The reception, bar and breakfast room are very pleasant. However, the location can be very noisy. I was awoken by the noise of traffic outside at 05.20.

The room was huge. I think it was around 5m x 5m. It wasn't bad, but it was quite dated. If you're weighing up this hotel against the Malmaison, I highly recommend the Malmaison. The rooms are smaller, but are finished to a much higher ********.

Perfect Location and Great Staff

from cbevz
In the heart of the city, the hotel is convenient for any visitor - in walking distance to business, restaurants, shops, and train station. Staff friendly and helpful. Location-wise, we were very happy that we chose the Millennium rather than the Hilton, Radisson, or Marriott.
Despite a few reviews stating shabby rooms, our room was fine. The rooms are not the same standard as other Millenniums at which I've stayed, just basic 3 star and CLEAN (but location and staff more than compensate for this). The lobby is 4 star and has a wonderful bistro overlooking George Square.

Hotel continental breakfast 'very' average. Across the square and to the right are pleasant cafes for coffee and breakfast. Arriving by car, you are allowed 5 minutes to unload in front of the hotel (despite signs to the contrary). The garage is only a few blocks away and once you have your ticket validated by reception, it is only 6 pounds daily.

For the seasoned business traveller, do NOT book the Executive Floor - way below par: no breakfast or afternoon snacks served in club lounge, cocktail wines rough, and though booking through expedia it stated that Executive Rooms included daily paper - it was extra.

Would definitely stay here again - location, location, location, staff, and cleanliness!!

Pity about breakfast

from donaldgregoryBelfast
Room excellent overlooking the square at the front
so location unbeatable
must be well soundproofed as tranquil
Public areas tasteful old world charm
Staff very pleasant
However breakfast is terrible unless you
dream of watery cool scrambled egg
luke warm bacon and sausages
The coffee just about ok
We stayed three nights and breakfast was included
Why do otherwise good hotels continue to inflict
crap breakfasts when for a small cost they could
provide a good fresh memorable start to the day?
Beats me

Avoid this hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Hi
We stayed in this hotel the last two days in April. The situation of the hotel is very central with the railway station very very near.The Millenium is urgently needing a refurbishment with peeling grubby paintwork very evident in the bedrooms.
We had a standard room to begin with but all that separated ours from the next was a single door locked on both sides which had virtually no soundproofing. We could hear our neighbours very clearly and their television even better.
A change of room was easily enough arranged with helpful receptionists but the room given to us had a sink that was blocked and we had to clean our teeth in the bath.Another change was quickly organised; this time to a huge 'club' room, it was still as grubby but at least the sink emptied.
Breakfast was appalling! There is nothing worse than poorly heated full breakfast but that's what we were given.
Even the cocktail bar performed badly. Two nights running there was no cherry brandy for the
Singapore sling my wife craved for and the gin martini alternative had no twist of lemon or olive.Now how bad is that?

Decent hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Checked in for a one night stay.

Staff are extremely helpful and as it was a special occasion a bottle of wine was left in the hotel room.
Lovely touch.

The room was dark (no main light) but pleasant. The room could do with a touch up but was clean. The only major problem was that the toilet would not flush properly.

Breakfast was lovely with a huge selection of fresh food.

Checkout was slow as there was only one person at reception but other than that i would recommend this hotel as a short stay destination for its staff, location and value.

It was fine

from Len83
The hotel's location is excellent, though it's exterior is really tired and shabby looking, but things improve once you're inside.
Reception/public areas are nice, stylish and clean and staff are friendly and helpful.
However, the sizes and condition of the bedrooms varies! I was fairly happy with my own room although the finishings in the bathroom were a little tatty and at times I could faintly hear the tannoy of Queen Street Station through my window. But, the wonderfully comfy bed more than made up for this! I had been travelling with colleagues who all found their rooms far too hot over night (despite trying to adjust the heating/AC), but my own room was a perfect temperature. One colleague complained about having a dirty toilet seat in their bathroom, and the bedroom of another colleague was quite run-down compared with the standard of my room.
All-In-all my stay was fine and I'm sure I would stay there again if in the area.

Faded grandeur

from Bunkerbuster
I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in January 2006. The loaction of this hotel on George Square (aka "Red" Square), is excellent, being within easy walking distance of anywhere you might wish to go in central Glasgow. We had a complimentary upgrade to a "club room" which was large, with a high ceiling. I was also given a free bottle of wine. The bed was comfortable.

This hotel has clearly seen better days, however. All of the painted surfaces in the bathroom were peeling. The fascias were missing from some of the taps. The temperature of the shower was difficult to control and the water pressure was disappointing. Bathroom amenities were basic.

In the bedroom, the walls were thick but there is no double glazing and the noise from outside was significant. It was difficult to get a completely restful night.

The television did not work properly and the mini-bar, such as it was, did not work at all. The room service full Scottish breakfast I ordered on my first night arrived barely warm. I did not order another.

On balance, if you can get a free upgrade and the wine then it's worth staying here for a night or two, but I probably wouldn't stay at this hotel again.

Good location

from Bollinge
I had a very good deal, as I booked the hotel on Expedia in conjunction with a BA flight. So I can't complain about the price!

Was upgraded to a large Club room overlooking the square. Unfortunately it took three or four trips to reception to get a keycard that worked in both the room door and the Club lounge door.

Continental breakfast appears to be included, but a full breakfast is another £17.

Food and service in the braserie is good.

what a waste of money

from A TripAdvisor Member
so let down by this hotel grubby, dirty, staff were not pleasant at all. thank goodness we were only there for one night dont waste your money. much better abd cheaper to be had in glasgow (glasgow itself was fantastic)

An over priced disgrace

from lesbowman
This hotel is an over priced disgrace. I booked this hotel because of very bad weather while travelling home. Service at the reception is nil and to be told they had a car park when booking and then to find it’s a mile away was a joke. The room was filthy and one table didn’t even have varnish on it. To sum up the room: small, dirty, noisy, dull and expensive. Breakfast is also an expensive start to the day. Take my advice stay well away from this hotel even in bad weather.

Top Local Tips for Glasgow

The Lighthouse Don't go a waste of time and money - little to see and do here.

Museums and shopping are the thing! Glasgow's museums are wonderful. Be sure to take in the Kelingrove. Take tea at the Willow Tea Room on Buchanan and window-shop after. Two Fat Ladies is a great dinner option, the the Bella Italia chain serves up excellent pasta and pizza.

Merchant Go to Maerchant centre for bars and resturants, but get the hotel to book for you it saves you time and its about a 5 minute walk so no need for a taxi of bus
