“Excellent city centre hotel”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

This was our second visit to the Blythswood. We had a good experience, very comfortable bed and pillows, well equipped room and pleasant and helpful staff. Well positioned for the city being situated across from a pretty square in a quiet part of the city but close enough to walk to the attractions. I would recommend it to those who like a relaxing and stress free stay in Glasgow.
The cocktail bar is a must to start (and end) your evening.

Just back from a one night stay at the Blythswood. Our stay was brilliant from start to finish with absolutely no faults! The staff were so warming and clued up on drinks, food recommendations and housekeeping were excellent. (giving us different bedding after juice was spilled everywhere). The spa was a luxurious experience that will be very difficult to top. We will definitely be booking our next stay here soon.

My partner and I went for an overnight. The spa is amazing leaves you feeling super relaxed. There are various rooms to choose from, all of which are great. The rooms are gorgeous. The food was yummy, for dinner I had beef and it was the best I've had. We both had a full Scottish breakfast which was delicious. Would definitely go back and recommend it to others. Quite expensive but you get what you pay for.

My partner and I stayed for one night in February 2014, and from the moment we entered, we realised what the fuss is all about. Yes, it's an expensive hotel, but these prices keep up the standards. The reception area glistened and the staff were genuinely friendly.

A classic double room is lovely, very comfortable and with an intimate ambience. Very rarely did we hear any noise from the rest of our corridor, so it appears quite peaceful too. The queen bed was massive and very comfortable, and had two large comfy seats at the foot of the bed, should you rather watch TV out of bed.

The marbled bathroom was dark and broody but gave an air of luxury. The bath was a great size for two, and perfect for a relaxing soak with champagne in hand.

We wandered down to the Spa area, the gym is on the small side with no treadmill, but the treatments are what it is all about. It looks a lovely relaxing area.

Breakfast was included, and although there was a buffet area, we opted for the full breakfast from the menu but found it particularly disappointing. If we had paid the price for such a breakfast we would have felt a bit ripped off. It tasted like a breakfast pack from any supermarket, nothing special or 5 * quality.

As we had plans for the night, we never dined here, but perhaps on our next stay we will.
We would highly recommend this hotel as a treat to yourself if it is usually outwith your budget.

Room Tip: Ask for a city facing view, some rooms face in towards each other, meaning you have to close your cu...

In our dating days my husband and I always enjoyed a regular stay here. The service is great from the moment you check in to any queries we had through out our stay till the moment we walked out the door. I love this hotel, it's great to lie in the bath watching a movie, the rain shower is also amazing. The cocktails at the bar with its relaxed atmosphere were lovely and the food from the restaurant was excellent equally at dinner time and at breakfast. The spa was my favourite. The spa rooms are great with the dimming lights, the scents and the music. I love the great big dark jacuzzi, actually I loved everything on offer in the thermal experience and could happily live there if allowed. The staff really added to our experience and were always warm and welcoming each time we came back. We will for sure be back and I would highly recommend it.

After having stayed here before I wasn't all that impressed the first time round. But I must say that the restaurant and spa faculties really made our stay perfect. Would recommend to all ages as caters for all age groups. I will definitely be returning
