This a wonderful hotel, very close to Glasgow train station,lots of history about the hotel rally driving etc.
I stayed here on a business trip and did not realise when i booked it was a spa hotel. The hotel is excellent with great staff who make you very welcome. The room was a little small considering how much I paid.

Very nice food although expensive, beer not to my taste.

As a spa hotel great, as a business mans hotel way too posh for me.

We had initially only booked for dinner but as it was my wife's birthday we decided to stay over. From arrival to departure is was great. Checkin was smooth, our room was a cracker on the 5th floor, standard of service was excellent by every member of staff. When we had bother with our key card, Holly arrived from the from the front desk with two glasses of champagne and a replacement. Dinner was superb as were the restaurant staff. A really cracking hotel, we will be back.

The room was lovely standard double as I was staying alone, very clean and all the staff were very polite. Got the feeling that it was under staffed as had to wait a while for breakfast/ room service. The spa was fully booked on the day I arrived so was unable to book any treatments till the next day. Was not offered flip flops and had to phone to get a robe, which I found strange in a 5 star hotel. Could only use spa as a guest between 7-9am and 6-9pm!

From the moment we arrived until we checked out everything was right. Tom on the door greeted us and immediately took charge of our smooth checking in even though a large party were crowded in reception. Our room was a standard double and was clever boutique design, bathroom we'll furnished and laid out. The public areas were well presented and furnished, we drank in both bars and enjoyed the atmosphere. The hotel is right on edge of town centre and middle of town is only minutes away. If visiting Glasgow I would check availability for this hotel.

Stayed one night for my husband’s birthday. Nice room, good views over rooftops and skyline. Room very clean, bathtub was very short, however. I am average height and felt uncomfortable in it. Thermal experience at the spa was excellent but fitness suite is very small and has very limited equipment. Good breakfast and service. Would stay again.

As a cake lover i decided to book a table at the Blythswood Square. The first impression was great, magnificent building in a great location. Sadly when we arrived to our table everything drastically changed.

The table was located right next to the ladies toilet and the chairs were way taller than the actual table, very uncomfortable indeed. The sandwiches were nice, a good selection, although the scones were very little and rather dry and heavy which is unforgivable.Thankfully the cakes were outstanding and that was good enough to save the day.

Also the service wasn't the best, the waitress was pleasant but with no attention to detail at all. No explanation of afternoon tea, no satisfaction check, coffees took far too long to arrive and no apologies or soever, etc.

For an establishment with such a caliber and good reputation everything was very grim, disappointing and well overpriced.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled with friends

We've dined at this hotel on several occasions but never stayed over. It was indeed five star quality. The rooms were very tastefully decorated and the bathroom in particular was stunning. We have to comment on the staff. From reception to the bar staff and breakfast team, they were all really friendly, polite and super efficient. Sometimes whilst staying at hotels it's either the room that's great or the staff/service but to have both really merits The Blythswood with its five star status. We'll be back and the sooner the better!!

Room Tip: Good location for a shopping trip to Glasgow. Avoid buying a large glass of red wine as it's rid...
