“fabulous decadence”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

Visited at end of January. Staff wonderful, helpful and above all cheerful. Rooms bigger than average and well appointed. Loved the sliding window between the bathroom and bedroom. Spa fabulous, and treatments very luxurious. Can thoroughly recommend the cocktails!

Stayed on a Sunday night on the midweek spa break. Arrived early and reception very efficiently stored luggage, called us when room ready and put luggage in room for us. Check in very easy, table for dinner and taxi to SECC all organised in an instant. Concierge also put change in parking meter for us whilst we were in spa next day.
Had lunch in upstairs bar on arrival - service very slow but food nice.
Dinner in restaurant overall good though I was disappointed to be coerced into having bottled water esp when at all other times in bar or restaurant the first thing you are given is a glass of chilled tap water!
Breakfast unsatisfactory - our order was taken for cooked breakfast, not written down and consequently wrong items on both our plates - this was rectified but I was still missing a tattie scone! We had already waited a long time and overall wait was 40 minutes! Also my poached eggs were raw and inedible.
Spa was lovely and treatments very good though they mixed up our bookings so my husband and I had to change rooms and therapists after we had been taken through.
Room as expected but turn down service a non event!
Overall enjoyed our stay but too many mistakes with service

Beautiful hotel and we stayed in a classic double room. Had delicious and reasonably priced cocktails in the gorgeous lounge bar and a good breakfast in the stunning restaurant. Reception staff were lovely and we even got into our room 3 hours early!

However a few things would have made it just that bit more special....there were no robes or slippers in the wardrobe (and we did ask for them). Maybe the luxury rooms have them. There was no heated towel rail, so our towels were still wet the next morning. And the room was VERY dark with limited natural light. Just a small window...but a huge curtain covering the whole wall. When we pulled back the curtain and released it was just a wall and not a window behind it, it was a bit disappointing. But we were out all day anyway, so it didn't really matter.

The spa was a bit disappointing. The service was not that of Stobo or the Sheraton spa, where I have been recently - and we were just pointed down the stairs in the general direction, rather than being shown around and shown how to use the lockers.

Overall it was a lovely stay though and, with the exception of the girl on the spa, the rest of the staff were all very helpful and friendly.

Just returned from Blythswood Square hotel. On arrival we were greeted at reception by Katrina & received a nice welcome with a speedy efficient check-in. Our car was parked for us with no hassle from a very pleasant concierge man. It was duly returned at the exact time requested on our departure. We were shown & our luggage was taken to our room. The rooms are spacious with extremely comfortable beds. The bathroom was immaculate & a great size. Following arrival we enjoyed a very nice afternoon tea. Staff were all very pleasant & courteous. We visited the spa area which is one of the best I have been to. Again friendly pleasant staff showed us around the various areas. Food & beverages are also served in this area which is perfect for chilling. There is a large choice at the cold breakfast buffet & a hot breakfast was cooked to order which was delicious. All the staff working in this area could not do enough to make sure all was well. Thank you to the manager here who does a great job. The hotel is situated in the centre of town so easy access to most places. We certainly found the hotel to be of 5 star quality.

I visited the Blythswood Square Hotel recently for a drink with my friend and just want to say how lovely the staff were. We were upstairs in the cocktail bar and we were served by Corrie, who, not only is he friendly and helpful, is very knowledgable and informative about wine/cocktails and appears to enjoy it too. There were also two other staff members there, Amy and Phil who made us feel very welcome and looked after us very well. We'll definitely be back for more.
The best place to go for a drink/cocktail !!!

My girlfriend and I always go away for her birthday and this year we decided to stay a little closer to home and enjoy Glasgow. From check-in with the very helpful and welcoming staff, we were treated to the best of service. We arrived in the room to find complimentary chocolates and prosecco along with a lovely note from the manager telling us to enjoy the birthday stay. The rooms were lovely with stunning marble bathrooms. The view was towards the back of the building but not really important for us. We were supplied robes and footwear for the spa. The spa itself was fantastic too. Exceptionally clean, enormously relaxing and fantastic layout. After heading out for dinner, we arrived back for some great cocktails (albeit after a bit of a wait - the only down point of stay). Breakfast was good with perhaps our tastes and expectations a bit different to what was on offer. I genuinely felt that nothing was too much trouble and left feeling we would have paid double for what we experienced. Leaves Cameron House & Carrick trailing greatly in my opinion.

Room Tip: We had one of their "Classic Bedrooms" i.e their lowest standard but it was still absolute...
