Broken door in the bathroom; light switches that did not work; TV remote control did not work. Room small. Mattress far too soft. Instructions for operating the safe were locked in the safe.
Did not feel like a 5 star experience.

Stayed here 2 years ago when visiting from Australia but only for 1 night. This time we were to be in Glasgow for 3 nights and I knew I wanted to return to Blythswood Square. Checkin was quick and efficient with the staff friendly on every occassion no matter who they were (waiters, doorman, porter etc). Our room was a deluxe room with a big bed, a sitting area and a bathroom with a large bath and seperate shower. Our room overlooked the square. There was plenty on offer for breakfast with your hot breakfast made to order. It was about a 10min walk downhill to Georges Square for the hop on hop off bus stop 1and for the main shopping area and about 15 mins uphill on the way back. Compared to other places I have stayed at, the deal I got was good value and I would highly recommend Blythswood Square.

Room Tip: Was in room 200 overlooking the square. Ask and they will try and accommodate

Stayed for one night and it was fabulous. The staff were friendly and helpful. Room was spacious and very modern. Had dinner in the Restaurant which was lovely although portions quite small. Breakfast was great, lots of choice. The spa was relaxing & the staff were lovely. The complimentary drinks in our room was a nice touch.

Room Tip: Had a second floor room and was quiet.

This hotel is lovely. The staff in particular were very friendly and helpful. However we had rooms on the ground floor and the only way to get to the spa was by the lift or to go outside and enter by a lower door. For someone like me who hates lifts it made it difficult. The sp was lovely apart from the fact that none of the hair dryers worked Nd we had to walk through the hotel like drowned rats.

I was booked into this hotel by a friend and it is simply amazing. Parking outside is limited and expensive, so park in the nearby multi storey if you have to park during the day. An impressive building. Reception light and airy. Was taken to room and that was very impressive as well. Big bedroom, with a semi open plan bathroom. My only complaint would be the darkness of the room. Hotel arranged breakfast early for myself and my group of friends so we could attend an event nearby.

Room Tip: Try it for a special occasion. I think you will go back again. Not cheap, but worth it

Stayed one night here and it was amazing. Reception staff are very friendly and welcoming. Room was very spacious, had a lovely big comfy bed. Bathroom was nice and big and very clean. Dined in the restaurant and the food was amazing. Lots of choice for breakfast too ad equally as tasty as our evening meal.

Stayed here to take advantage of there Sunday night deal. Second time in this hotel and found it to be every bit as relaxing as I remember. Did not use the spa but always something worth returning for. The staff at reception very friendly and confirmed our dinner reservation in case we wanted to dine later. The room was very comfortable and the bed just swallows you up, wonderful. The evening meal was nice and the staff very attentive. Breakfast was a comprehensive selection and the cooked selection made fresh to order .Cannot wait to return
