My husband booked this hotel for an overnight business trip- with myself and our daughter in tow as it was half term. It was booked as it had a pool and looking at the reasonable reviews seemed as though it would be suitable for future business bookings. Firstly, after a long drive from Manchester check-in was fine. We wanted to... More

My partner and I were booked into the Thistle Glasgow for work, DB&B for one night and, as we hadn't stayed before, weren't sure what to expect. Happily, we were pleasantly surprised. I've attended work events at this hotel before but never stayed over; I requested an accessible room with a walk in shower and that's exactly what I got.... More

Great location and staff all very friendly. Enjoyed our stay as we spent the night in glasgow and only slept in the hotel. Our room was next to the air con/heating system so was very loud which made it very difficult to have a good nights sleep and the bath was dirty!

Good location, staff extremely helpful and overall the hotel is good. We stayed in a family room which was very big and ideal for the children. The room was a little dated and the beds were extremely hard, but overall good value.

Location great, value ok, staff fine, food awful. We had a family room, kids couldn't sleep on pull out bed cause the springs were poking thru the mattress. Food is dire and expensive at the same time. Couldn't fault the staff, I'm sure it's tough working here.
