This 'traditional scottish hotel' (Argyll Hotel 973 Sauchiehall Street Glasgow G3 7TQ) was full of surprises! I spent 3 nights in a well appointed en suite room (104) - which was clean & comfortable though the decoration was 'tired' and in need of refreshing. Do check if their Sutherlands Restaurant is OPEN when you want to go - I was disappointed that Tue-Thu 6-8th Dec 2011 it was NOT open due to low occupancy at that time. However this same restaurant is their basement breakfast room (there IS a lift available or you negotiate some 'interesting' stairs for access)
This restaurant/breakfast room is olde worlde - very dark brown (with slightly faded fabric chairs and dark brown tables (no cloths)) and a dark tartan carpet. With help yourself breakfast from huge olde worlde stainless steel servers and a heated plate rack (all must cost a small fortune to run).. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and anyone could sit anywhere (probably due to low occupancy) and every table had butter & milk already on it - and I suspect that some tables were not used - it may have been more cost effective etc for the Hotel if meals had been cooked to order and tables allocated - but, as a visitor it was an interesting observation.
Surprisingly I WOULD stay again if I was in the area - it was of average price for the area and very near the Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery (Free) which I spent some time at.
The reason for my trip was a family funeral - and, not knowing the area I had chosen this Hotel from the Tourist Information Board Accommodation Brochure.
