“A Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We had an overnight in Glasgow and were happy with the accommodations. The room were comfortable and clean. Food in the restaurant was good, as was the service. The Hotel is conveniently located. This hotel offered my first taste of Haggis at breakfast, which was a pleasant surprise!

Good size rooms. Bathroom was quite small and could do with being updated a bit, but it was perfectly ok for our 2 night stay. All in all very comfortable stay. Nice swimming pool, Sauna and Steam Room. Friendly staff. Quite pricey at the bar. Only real negative would be the car parking - if you have a big car as I do, it's a bit tight, especially if you need to go to the lower level! But having a secure carpark at the hotel is always a positive. If it was free for guests it would have been even better, but £6 per day for the location was worth paying. Would I stay again? Yep.

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for your review. I am pleased to read you enjoyed a comfortable stay at the Thistle Glasgow, and managed to also enjoy the hotel's Leisure Club. I am sorry you were not able to park in the upper car park, and found it quite tight to drive your large car down the ramp. I We do believe £6.00 for overnight car parking represents excellent value for money. Thanks again for your review, and we look forward to welcoming you back. Kind Regards, Ewing Stewart, General Manager.

My sister and I arrived at the Glasgow Thistle Hotel on June 7th. We were able to check into our hotel early (at 8:30 a.m.). The staff there were very helpful and looked up train information for us so we could travel to Rothesay/Isle of Bute when we got there.

The room was very clean and decently furnished. We asked for more towels and they brought them up right away. For some reason there was no iron or ironing board in the room but again they brought them up right away.

Had problems getting the tv to work but it could have been operator error.

I attended a business event at this hotel over a weekend. The hotel is well presented with good car parking and a well laid out reception. The reception staff were very helpful and cheerful. The bedroom was well presented will all amenities there was even bottled water, a nice touch, the bed was also very comfortable. The breakfast had a good choice and all food was hot. The evening meal was part of a private function and a set menu however the main course meat was not cooked properly as it was raw in the middle although I complained to the waitress there was nothing done. Overall for my experience an excellent bed and breakfast hotel.

Room Tip: I was on the 5th floor and the room was excellent

Stayed for 4 nights on business. My first room was draughty due to a broken window and noisy due to a large wedding party taking place into the early hours (on a Sunday night!). Other minor annoyances being a broken, hair dryer, temperamental tv, no complementary toiletries and lifts with minds of their own. The staff very kindly moved me to a new room the next day, which whilst still a bit draughty and noisy from the street outside and a high school prom, but better. The room service food was also a bit disappointing and not as described on the menu. Whilst well located, with pleasant enough staff and clean comfortable rooms,the hotel itself leaves a lot to be desired- in particular new windows!

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to post your review on Trip Advisor, and for your kind comments regarding our staff and clean comfortable rooms in a great location. I am very sorry to read your comments regarding the hair dryer, the t..v. and no toiletries. We do supply complimentary toiletries which are replenished daily, and additional supplies are available on request, and I do hope our Guest Relations Manager was made aware of your issue with the hair dryer and t.v. which could easily have been resolved. I regret that you found the rooms allocated to you a bit noisy, and may I ask should you be staying with us again, please let us know, and perhaps it would be preferable if we allocate you a room on the other side of the building. Kind Regards, Ewing Stewart, General Manager.

Visited the hotel last year as part of a party for a stag do (around 20 of us). Even though there was a lot of people to check in the staff handled it in a prompt and swift manner. The rooms we were staying in were twin rooms, but there was easily enough space for two people. The bathroom was really good with an excellent shower and the beds were very comfortable. As mentioned at the beginning this was for a stag do, so we only used the hotel for the bar and for sleeping in - and for that it was ideal. The bar was fully stocked and didn't experience any outages, even with a lot of us drinking. On our penultimate day we did use the swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room. All very good. The reason I have given a 4 is because I didn't sample breakfast or any of the food there so cannot comment. Overall a pleasant and easy stay.
