“My 5th visit”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 via mobile

Ive reviewed this hotel before but I thought I would post again as I cannot praise the hotel and staff enough. We have our arrival planned well. We always arrive at lunchtime and get checked in. The room is normally just being prepared but that gives us a leisurely spell to go up to the cocktail bar order some food and sit and chat to the bar staff. Its always great to watch the cocktail staff prepare their cocktails. Once fed and watered we get shown our room. On all 5 visits the rooms have been superb. From the new rooms at the back to the renovated rooms overlooking the square they have all been great. Everyone has character have been designed to give you a relaxing stay.
SUPERB HOTEL AND STAFF. best hotel in Glasgow in my opinion.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

Stayed here for one night and absolutely loved it from start to finish!
The room we had was really lovely and very comfortable, as was the bed. The bathroom was great also, with a good powerful shower and it also had a bath. The finish in both rooms was to a very high standard and did feel luxurious!
The little extras like the bathrobes and slippers added a nice touch and my friend and i loved lounging about in them.
We also used the spa which was amazing and i would definently recommed guests at the hotel use it - it was so relaxing and calming we could have spent all night in there.
We ate in the restaurant and the food was really outstanding... from the way it was presented to the taste.... no complaints at all.
The breakfast the next morning was also brilliant, with a huge choice to pick from. There was even a bottle of vodka on the table to make bloody marys with for those with a hangover... i wasnt brave enough to try it but my friend did and she was very happy with it!
Overall it was just a great experience... the staff were very friendly and helpful, the atmosphere was so relaxed and we never felt rushed at all by the staff.
I would definently reccomend a stay here.

Stayed for one night as a special birthday treat for my friend. From start to finish our stay was exceptional. Complimentary upgrade (!) to a suite which was fabulous, huge, more than we needed but what a treat for us! Had planned to head out for food and drinks but so pleased with the hotel environment we never moved til checkout the next day! Cocktails were delicious and sooo many to choose from. Dinner was good value and again, delicious. The Spa is calm and relaxing. The whole experience at The Blytheswood for us was memorable but it is the staff and their impeccable customer service (the best I have encountered) and attention to detail that makes us both sure we will return again and again.

I have stayed here a few times and will keep coming back, it just has everything you could want in a five star hotel - to name the best bits: amazing spa, cocktail bar and friendly, helpful staff, all in the centre of glasgow! You would pay at least double the price for similar in Edinburgh! Perfect for girly weekend or romantic break. You can even get a bloody mary at the breakfast buffet if you have overindulged in the cocktails the night before!

We had an absolutely fabulous time in the Blythswood in October 2013. We went to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and it was fantastic from start to finish. The food was amazing, as were the cocktails! The breakfast menu had great variety and there was plenty to choose from. The staff were all very friendly and the service overall was excellent. We stayed in one of the suites which was outstanding. Plenty of room, with an extremely comfy bed, the bathroom was also huge! We had spa treatments too which were excellent and the spa itself was beautiful. It is the nicest hotel I've had the pleasure of staying in and we will definitely be back!

I don't place many reviews, but after a wonderful 4 day stay at the Blythswood, I simply wanted to say 'what a great place to relax, not be rushed and outstanding service'.

Having travelled a fair bit, the most important aspect of a hotel, or one of them, is the notion of being left to your own devices and not being pestered (hotels in London are particularly awful).

The Blysthswood is without doubt my favourite hotel and I'll look forward to popping back, some time in 2014.

Cheers,
Robert

Stayed at The Blythswood for 1 night just before Christmas. Front desk service very good, room was a little on the small side but adequate. Nice decor & good size bathroom with seperate bath & showe, very comfy bed. We had drinks in the bar on the 1st floor that evening, excellent service & Christmas themed cocktails were amazing! Checked out early so didnt have breakfast but assume it would be good.
Great hotel with great service & atmosphere, will go back!
