How about this for a room?

We’ve had access to the hotel and met with its Sales Executive, Laura Osborne, to understand directly from her what this hotel is all about. We’ve also been on a tour of its facilities and rooms and bring you the inside track on the standard you can expect when you go to stay there on our website www.hotels.tv/glasgow. But first here, a quick summary of the main points we took in during our visit and a score out of 100 for the hotel:

Criteria Comments Score out of 10
Location Just away from the city centre but close enough to be able to walk to restaurants, theatres and pubs 8
First Impression – decor Small entrance, tiled and with feature antique lift! 8
First Impression – welcome Friendly helpful staff 8
Hotel Cleanliness Excellent throughout – the lift was being polished as I visited! 8
Business Facilities Limited meeting rooms, but ideal for team meetings. Flexible layout and one room has its own private bar for events/team bonding 7
Rooms Recently renovated (2009) and upgraded, fresh, good standard for class. Massive windows and quirky designs make this as far away from the box-like standards as you can get! 9
Restaurant Now residents-only and limited in its offers. Not open to non-residents. 6
Bar No bar as such but combined space with the residents’ restaurant 5
Things you might not know The feature antique lift is one of only two in Glasgow. Every room has a new Vi-Spring bed - top-of-the-range mattresses that retail at over £2000! 9
Unique Selling Point Massive windows in every room, and every room is different! 8
Total A unique style and ideally placed for visitors to the city 76

 

So there you are, a 76% score for the BaBy aBode Hotel in Glasgow’s Bath Street! Top score so far!

Sticky Carpets? Hairs in the bed? What Would You Like To See Reviewed?

How many times have you opened up a “Hotel Review” blog or post expecting to read some unique insights into the hotel only to find it contains old or copied words written by someone who has never actually been to the hotel? Very often I’ll bet! Well, www.hotels.tv/glasgow aims to change all that – new for 2012…….

A Typical Hotel Bed
Would you sleep in this bed? Can you see any hairs?

 

……

we aim to bring completely fresh reviews containing information on all the things you want to read about and that will help you decide which hotel to stay at!

But first we want to hear from you what you would like to see reviewed. For example, do you want to know what brands they have behind the Bar? What about the colour schemes of the bathrooms, or the types of toiletries they have (and whether they are in small bottles to, ahem, take away, or are in containers fixed to the wall)? Maybe a hair net is important to you, or free WiFi? Whatever the detail we’ll try to find out and include it in our reviews. This could be fun! Also, if you have any specific hotels you would like reviewed, please let us know.

www.hotels.tv specialises in presenter-led video reviews and we aim to give you, the customer, an independent warts-and-all review of the hotels in question. Even if a hotel doesn’t want or need a video to showcase their facilities www.hotels.tv/glasgow can still provide unique insights into what they have to offer.

Anyway, first things first – please let us know what you’d like to see reviewed, and/or what hotels you’d like reviewed and if you have any quirky requests, then all the better! Reply to this Blog, or email us at Glasgow@hotels.tv or alan.tennant@hotels.tv and we’ll make sure we find out for you!

Glasgow Hotel Video Reviews Increase Website Traffic

With the advent of faster broadband speeds and video sites such as You Tube and many others, the power of video is now beginning to become apparent to both marketing professionals and potential clients alike. None of this is particularly new technology – video in various formats (tape, discs and digital) has been around for years, as has the internet. However, broadband speeds are now such that you can view a video online without the picture freezing while the download speed tries to keep up with the streaming. At Hotels.tv we have been producing online hotel video reviews for years now, and were the first major online booking agent to do so. At Hotels.tv/Glasgow we are developing the video content on our website and will in the next few months be increasing the content significantly. We do already have some videos on the site, and the amount of traffic visiting these is a high percentage of the overall traffic to visit the site. The figures are as follows:
