Pleasantly surprised. Excellent value for money. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly - it's Scotland after all! - and room spacious and very clean. The only reason I'm not rating it five stars is because of an issue with hot water for the shower, which was promptly addressed.

We were up visiting friends in Glasgow and desided to stay closer to the city centre this time so we chose the Acorn. We were not disappionted. Very modern, quite small hotel. Almost boutique but not quite but still very good. I was impressed with the 42 inch TV in our room along with ipod dock and GHD hair straightners (although Id have to grow some hair first to take advantage).

I will use the 3C approach Compliment: small hotel; quiet place and close to the big park. 20 min . walking distance to the convention center. I booked this room to attend a conference (traveled from USA). Paid 83 pounds + VAT -- not that cheap. I opted out of breakfast which will cost an additional 15 pounds!!. Critique/problems: No A/C in the room and it was warm outside, the room was quite warm.. I opened the window and ran the exhaust fan in the bathroom for air circulation. There is a bar below at the street level. Lots of noise and smoke from the people smoking outside entered the room via open window at night.. ACORN advertises free wi-fi which did not work for four of the six days I stayed. They did not fix it in spite of repeated requests. quite frustrated. Business travelers watch out. The owner is NOT a responsive person as per the front desk lady. She tried hard to take care of things.. she was new (two weeks on the job!) and showed a level of frustration when I talked to her. NO laundry service available at the hotel. No fridge in the room. NO soap or shampoo in the shower. Better take your own. Challenge: ACORN management has to rise up quite a bit to take care of thing. ACORN WILL NOT SEE ME AGAIN IF I EVER GO TO GLASGOW.

Clean, quiet, comfortable. Suited us well for exploring the whole city. Free street parking over the weekend was a nice bonus.

Stayed July 2014 for the games in a small but perfectly formed north-facing room. Just as well because it was hot outside. Bit of a walk (a mile or so) to the centre. Clean. Breakfast just as you'd expect. W-Fi worked. Watery shower gel (no biggie). Failed to find a use for the supplied hair straighteners.

I was really looking forward to staying at the Acorn. I had a beautiful room (although small), it was very clean, stylish and warm, considering the temperature outside was -10!! What I think let the place down, was the telephone lines were dead, so prior to check-in, I couldn't phone to get directions. When I asked about room service, it was v basic menu....Not 4 star...Toasties, tinned Heinz soup and sandwiches, that was all that was offered. The last nail on the coffin for me was, when the receptionist Huffed at me, when I ordered a toastie.. My order was taken reluctantly, then I was told, "i'll phone your room, when your toastie, is ready" so NO room service then!! Such a shame....because I would have definitely recommended the place, for its convience of the Town, and for the stylish and comfortable surroundings!!
