    Very good

    Was able to go to room and relax for the evening without too much disruption. It is close to the city centre and visitors should expect some street noise. This is minimal. Staff are pleasant and helpful. When leaving in the morning they are chatty and appear interested in your day. This is a nice way for visitors to the city to appreciat the qualities of the Scots. I am a Scot and have used the hotel for overnight stays in the city on three occasions when the service, room and staff have all been of similar quality. I would not hesitate in using or recommending its facilities in the future.

    We found the room lovely and clean with more than enough space for the three of us, and breakfast was excellent

    Room smelled of damp on entering. Discovered drain in shower blocked, evil smell coming from it. Extractor fan not working. Window hard to open. Floor rugs not clean. Window frames thick with dust.

    Good situation in Merchant City. Interesting building. Easy to find and stop car outside.

    Didn't matter too much to us, but steep stairs with no lift - might not be suitable for some guests. Car park a couple of blocks away.

    Perfect

    As always the staff are very freindly and the location is perfect for my purpose. Nothing seems to be a bother for the staff, including making sure you have enough on your breakfast plate.

    I have stayed at Merchant City Inn on quite a number of occasions in the past. I like it's central location, its simpleness, the friendliness of the staff and the that you can get reasonably priced car parking through the hotel in the nearby Q Park.

    Nice

    Central city location at reasonable cost. Historic building and stair

    The proximity of a very noisy nightclub, open till the early hours of the morning detracted from my visit. Visited this hotel some 12 years ago just after it opened - not been decorated since last visit - it now needs a revamp- decoration very tired

    Nice

    Staff were extremely helpful, and the room was suitable size for one person.

    The hotel was opposite a bar so there was a significant amount of noise right outside the window, and my room didn't not in fact have a proper window as it was blocked off by an outer door so there was no natural light in the room

    Great value for money, very friendly and helpful staff. Free wireless is great. Room has all the basics expected at that price range

    Bathroom is perhaps due for a renovation, but still functional. Floor in room needed to be swept but that was a minor quibble

    Nice

    I liked the room and the location was handy for the town and amenities. The breakfast was good and the staff competent.

    I wondered why I was charged an extra ten pounds more than I was quoted in the confirmation e-mail but since I had not printed this off I didn't make a fuss.
