We had an enjoyable spa day, we had a voucher for 50% off the Rhassoul Mud Treatment and three hour Thermal Experience with a glass of Prosecco each for £45 per person it was worth it, float around the spa and the mud treatment for 2 left us with baby soft skin, three of the water jets in the main "pool" area weren't working, no biggie when the spa is quiet. I wouldn't pay more, it isn't worth it to me. We had a nice time, relaxing, great jacuzzi. Staff were fine, nothing to write home about. My husband pressed the emergency button in one of the steam rooms thinking it "did" something not realising it was an emergency button BUT nobody came! Glad neither of us needed medical attention.

Entrance makes a real impression - grand and imposing. Interesting rally memoribilia. Staff were professional but friendly and helpful. Our room was just off the reception but not noisy. It was a larger executive room - worth the extra in my view. The bathroom was enormous with an excellent shower and large claw foot bath. Good quality toiletries too. My partner used the spa and was pleased with the treatments although, due to a mix up, she was much delayed. They made up for it with champagne and free manicure. My favourite part was the bar which is large and stylish with a buzzy atmosphere. Good breakfast in the room if a little cool. The bathroom was baltic in the morning - the one major fault but easily fixed I would think.

Room Tip: Executive ones are great value

Blythswood Square is one of those hotels that is so close to being perfect but something was just always a little off.. Don't get me wrong, I had a great stay here but they fell a little short of what they advertise in terms of luxury and service.... Looking to stay in a luxury hotel in Glasgow I opted to try Blythswood Square over Hotel du Vin (where I've previously stayed). To compare and contrast: Blythswood is a beautiful building in a brighter and better location than Hotel Du Vin. Although the staff is not as formally trained as Hotel Du Vin- they were all pleasant and they all tried really hard to be accommodating. Du Vin's service was flawless where Blythswood Square service was not quite there yet. However Hotel Du Vin is dark and stuffy where Blythswood is bright and more energetic. I think you get the point...... The rooms at Blythswood were in general very nice. The decorations were a little off- I didn't think the enormous lamps over the beds visually made sense and in certain rooms excessive furniture was more of a blockage than helpful. The tv didn't always work and somedays the bathrobes were replenished and somedays they were not. The beds though were very comfortable. In general the rooms were very clean. The first night we stayed our room had not been cleaned properly since we checked in early but didn't have a problem with cleanliness after that. The spa was a nice attempt at a luxury hotel spa but didn't quite cut it as one. We had massages which were good but not great, service was pleasant but not over-the-top, amenities were nice but not 5-star as it should be in a "luxury" spa. Surprisingly there were no spa attendants and you had to walk back upstairs to the main reception desk for water..The spa is also open certain hours of the day to all hotel guests which was a nice offering. The hotel restaurant had a great atmosphere and the food was mostly excellent but inconsistent. All in all this place has a ton of potential. The staff was very friendly but if they could step it up a few notches in terms of paying attention, anticipating needs and customer service they would be the best! There were some staff that were excellent but in general it wasn't customer service focused as it should have been. I would love to come back here because I enjoyed the location and building, I hope they can work on pulling it all together so it can be one super fantastic hotel!

I've now stayed on business circa 10 times and can't fault this hotel. Rooms are spacious and bed are v v comfortable, wifi is fast, spa is great to chill out in for an hour and food is consistently good, you can eat at the bar, in a booth or at a table..fish cakes are stunning. Breakfast is the best in Glasgow, full Scottish or off the ala carte ...I've stayed in all the so called five stars in Glasgow and this beats them all hands down.

Superb in every way - we usually pay a lot more for our 5 star stays but found this offer on web. Attention to detail in rooms and amazing bathroom. Hotel perfect warm temperature. We stayed at rear of hotel which was extremely quiet. Our daughter visiting from London joined us for breakfast and this was not a problem to the friendly attentive staff.

Pros: Beautiful building. Comfy beds. Good restaurant and bar. Very helpful staff.

Cons:Shame that we got no sleep all night. Had a room facing onto the road, traffic noise all night kept us awake. Moved rooms and found strange mechanical noise even though air con was turned off. At these prices would have expected a good night's sleep.
Decor had a bit too much "bling".
Breakfast portions quite small.
Spa only open at certain times for hotel guests.
