Hotels round the world - Merchand Lodge/Glasgow
This place is cashing one night before allowing customers
to the room and refuses to return the money or cancel the
charge in case the customer does not take the room.
There are a few additional reasons for not staying there:
small bed, lilliputian sink, supershallow closet, no table nor
writing space, noisy floor, negative appreciation on cleanliness,
Go instead to the Holiday Inn Express (three blocks down
towards the river). Slightly more expensive, but incomparably
better with decent facilities. Be aware however of potential noise
from nearby pubs during weekends.
Note that the Merchand Lodge never denied they used the night (therefore
cashing it twice) and that the contacted local Scottish Board of Tourism
was dramatically helpless.
