Historical Traveller Reviews of Novotel Glasgow Centre Hotel
Very Smart and Efficientfrom dalboy
My only real gripe about the whole stay was the early morning call. I'd requested 7:30am for the 3 days I was there, 1st morning call was recieved at 6:20am, the 2nd day it was at 7:00am and on the 3rd day it was 7:30am, so they got there in the end, although it leaves you a bit grumpy when something this simple cannot be done correctly.
Staff were pleasant and courteous and I wouldn't have a problem staying there again.

could do betterfrom MaryLC
Decor: attractive and soothing. Would however have appreciated more lighting in the room which only has an entrance light, lamp on desk and fixtures on either side of the bed. A couple of cushions for the sofa, and an ironing board and minibar (found in Novotel in London) would also have been nice.
Cleanliness and maintenance: mostly good. The bathroom however had a strong smell of damp when I first entered.
Service: the member of staff who checked me in candidly confessed to having started work there only 2 weeks ago. Fair enough. I had requested a non-smoking room both in my booking email and at the reception desk and yes, dear reader, was given a smoking room. However it was quiet and did not smell of smoke (there was instead a strong smell of paint which was almost worse) although the corridor reeked. Said member of staff also confessed inability to credit points with my Accor loyalty card. Other members of staff efficient. Photocopies of maps given that were barely adequate - I picked up a free tourist map from an Internet café and wondered why the Novotel couldn't offer the same.
Eating: I had breakfast twice. The selection was quite good although the croissants one morning were all, literally, raw. They were swiftly removed and others put in their place. The plates were not all completely clean and some of the cutlery encrusted. Service mostly cheerful.
Facilities: a newspaper can be ordered and is brought to your room. The Internet access was expensive and rubbish. Avoid if poss. and find an Internet point in city.
Restaurants: staff will invaryingly direct guests to Sauchiehall St for eating out. If your tastes go beyond burgers and takeaways, try Bath St and parallel and perpendicular streets. The trendier bars etc. mostly seemed to be at basement level.
Overall my stay was reasonably comfortable, but the problems listed above should not be happening in a hotel whose rack rate is in the region of 120 pounds. Booking via the Internet advisable.
We will not stay at the Glasgow Novotel againfrom CalgaryRose
A good location, quiet but centralfrom TATraveller
The hotel staff were very efficient and friendly: the room the usual Novotel standard - not new but clean and comfortable - and breakfast was good given the price we had payed per night. All in all comfortable and very good value.
We had thought to stay at the Marriott but it was twice the price and when we saw where the Marriott was we realised we had chosen the better location for visiting the city itself.
Good option for the cityfrom Ivanorris
useless manageress !from A TripAdvisor Member
Good Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Very dissapointedfrom scottishdave
The cleaners walked into our room at 8:00am, 10:00am and 11:30am each time knocking once then coming straight into the room! Now maybe during the week 8:00 isnt too early but on a Sunday morning! and 3 times! Could they not have looked and seen which rooms had checked out before entering! We found this rather un-settling!
Then at 7:00am the hotel had a carpet cleaner in which had a power washer and generator blasting out from the early morning! Could the staff not see this was waking all their guest up?
On the whole I was very un-impressed and would not recommed this hotel to anyone. We paid £69 as booked it on-line but the walk in price was £120! I would have felt robbed paying that amount of money for a very shabby hotel - avoid if you want a good sleep.
Top Local Tips for Glasgow
Take the train or bus! Driving in Glasgow is excruciating. My husband and I are seasoned drivers, and we were at our wits' end.
places to visit St. Mungo Cathedral & Necropolis, Kelvin Park, Museum (Kylie & Quentin Blake temporary Exhibition)
Glaswegians what really made my trip to glasgow special was the warmth and friendliness and helpfulness of the people. I asked for direction about 10 times in 2 days and was on each occasion given incredibly helpful advice about the area & transport & shops to visit as well as the directions - The people were delightful.
