“Never disappoints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2012

Great location, on-site parking, friendly staff. Always shop around, but it's just too hard to beat if it's city centre we need. Ok, so the rooms haven't all been refurbished and shower curtains are a pain, but come on, there's always a deal if you book ahead and what more do you need? (We paid £60.30 in the autumn promotion). I've stayed here loads and we got an upgrade to executive double this time, so two queen-size doubles and loads of space. Bottled water and a fridge to keep it in. Tiny niggle dealt with while we were out at dinner. (thai lemongrass round the corner, check it out). With the Signature programme there's even more incentive to stay loyal and I don't doubt we'll be back. If pushed to choose for them to improve one thing, it would be for free wifi, especially in an "executive" room.

Stayed November 2012, travelled as a couple

Dear Reviewer

Very nice to read your positive review. The hotel does enjoy a superb location and well lit underground parking. We will be commencing at the beginning of next year with the refurbishment of the remaining floors of bedrooms. However, meanwhile, why not upgrade to one of our rooms with walk in showers? Thank you, Ewing Stewart, General Manager

I have stayed in numerous hotels in Glasgow and I keep returning to the Thistle! It's in the perfect location but yet never noisy at night for sleeping.
Beautiful executive twin room on floor 6 which was a little extra but worth it. Breakfast was great and we had afternoon tea in the bar which I bought as a groupon deal and this was really lovely!
Will definitely be back!!

Room Tip: Floor 6 or ask for a refurbished room

Stayed for 4 nights and was very impressed with the hotel - the location is perfect, convenient for all amenities. We had a lovely stay. Could not fault the staff, they were very friendly and extremely helpful at all times. Our rooms were on the seventh floor, quiet, very clean and the bed was comfortable. We used the swimming pool and spa and were very happy with the treatments. We had breakfast every morning and it was fresh with good choices. This is not a luxury hotel but very clean and comfortable and we would be happy to stay again.

I believe they need to refurbish the hotel rooms. The carpets are dirty and the bathroom furniture shows the age of the hotel.
They should at least provide free WiFi.
The position of the hotel was very convinient and this is for sure a big advantage of the hotel.
Breakfast was good and the staff was also very friendly.

Stayed here for one night, a Saturday with a girl friend..great location for the shops and bars. Although we stayed on room only was very impressed with the room, plenty of space and clean. No noise at all, which for a large hotel with functions quite a pleasant surprise! Checking in and out so simple no delays.. and the late check out a bonus..would definitley stay again..

Stayed in the Thistle with a group of 40 people,and heard no complaints, other than bar prices were high.This is the same in any city hotel so i would not let it stop me going back.
The hotel is very nice, in a good location and has parking.
We had a lovely big room with safe and fridge included and the bathroom had a bath as well as a walk in shower.
Did'nt use the fitness centre so i can't comment on that.
Breakfast was included in our deal and was a very nice buffet,the chef came out and chatted to people which was a nice touch.
I found this to be a very good hotel and the rooms very soundproof, we were on floor 7.

My family and I stayed here for two days in early November 2012. The hotel was clean, the fitness center was great and the pool was enjoyed by my two year old. What really made this was the fact that we left our passports in the room safe and the staff were so accommodating in helping us retrieve them that they've won our business forever. Thanks Thistle!
