    The Restaurant at Blythswood Square has closed its doors following almost ten years at the forefront of Glasgow’s dining scene and we'll soon be creating something new. Over the coming months, while our plans are realised and a new space is created, breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served in The Salon located on the first floor of the hotel overlooking the gardens.

    Beautiful hotel that was centrally located. Complimentary spa facilities like steam room and all but you will need to bring your own swimwear (no t shirts allowed). Has quite a number of street parking around the hotel (2hour max stay with 30minute refresh rates i.e you will need to park at another street for more than 30minutes before coming back).

    Welcoming luxury hotel with a fantastic spa. Surprisingly unstuffy with the most friendly yet professional staff. Genuine sense of nothing being too much trouble for them. Dinner was excellent and breakfast options very good. You really should go the only downside is that you may judge other hotels by the very high standard they set!

Spa in the evening was a mess - soggy towels, empty water bottles, plasters a hair clumps floating in pool - yuk!

    The view from our room was a builders cabin in the street which was open with a desk in it. This was our immediate view which was disappointing to say the least. Then we went to the spa and the steamroom was broken & the laconium seats extra hot so I couldn’t sit down. I normally love the laconium. The staff at the hotel were great. Lovely.

    We complained about the smell in our bathroom, it was a very strong smell of urine. They opened our window to try and resolve the smell. We complained again and the cleaner said it always smells like this in this room!! Was not impressed. We paid for the buffet breakfast to then be told we would have to wait a long time for hot food as they were busy, pancakes was solid! Very poor. Customer service in the bar was slow, our empty plates remained on our table 35 mins after finishing. 4 members of staff standing at bar chatting.

Perfectly located for easy access, to all the main places in central Glasgow. A warm welcome and very helpful staff. Well equipped rooms that are well maintained and looked after.

    Lovely hotel, great location, totally recommend”

    The beds were so comfy, the staff were great and very helpful and friendly, loved the bar and ambiance and had a brilliant few hours in the gorgeous spa too. Location was spot on for exploring all that glasgow has to offer. Loved the city too. Things which would have made it perfect would be complimentary water in the room, the room to be a bit lighter and a few finishing touches in the room to be sorted i.e. bathroom glass doors were not really clean, main door didn't close, not enough coat hangers. But all tiny niggles. Overall we would return again to this hotel and to glasgow, a lovely stay in a fantastic city.

    Excellent City Centre hotel”

    Location/Spa

    The hotel is situated in the business area of Glasgow but still only 100 metres or so from the main shopping area. The welcome from reception staff was great and the rooms comfortable. The spa is excellent as is the breakfast. The bar, whilst expensive specialises in cocktails with an extensive list. All in all a good experience
