Reasonably impressive on first sight. Then you settle in and try to sleep...... Bed feels like a stack of cardboard boxes. Blackout curtains don't provide dark Housekeeping Hoover and bang at strange hours Sink plug stained Bedside light faulty Do not disturb sign torn Iron leaves black sticky gunk on my white shirt Not impressed

We stay in the Thistle 3 or 4 times a year - mainly due to its excellent location, though it is also doubtless a decent and well run hotel with friendly enough staff and spacious rooms. Last year we were disappointed to find the dinner menu was far too international with hardly a Scottish dish in sight - however this... More

I stayed here for a night recently and found it to be a good choice, had a king size room on 7th floor and it was really big, had everything you would need in the room and it was clean and airy. The public areas are lovely and the breakfast was really nice, plenty choice and attentive staff. Would stay... More

We only had one night but found this to be a well appointed hotel in a great location to visit Glasgow, particularly as it has it's' own parking. The rooms are well appointed and the whole hotel was very clean and well maintained. The staff were excellent - in particular when we had a "drama" of a mark on a... More

We were greeted with professionalism and organization. We did not receive help with our luggage. My room was comfortable and clean but had an electric shower. My friends room was completely updated with a regular shower. The difference was like budget hotel vs middle range hotel. I would have rather had her room which was on the 8th floor. Mine... More

I stayed for one night on business, checking in around 9pm and leaving the next day around 7.30. From my perspective the hotel was fit for purpose. Check-in was fast an efficient, and unusually the reception staff all seemed to be local. My standard double room was secure, well-equipped and very clean but, with the exception of the bed covers,... More

I never give 100% in a rating, however 4 weeks into an 8 week trip, the Thistle Glasgow has seen me make exception. The pure bliss of the simplest check in and checkout process ever (we had prepaid, so maybe that helped), spacious, quiet, well appointed room in a great location - there was nothing more we could ask for....

Stayed 2 nights as part of coach tour. Quite modern hotel with clean, comfortable rooms. Short walk to shopping and night life. Staff very courteous and helpful. Restaurant is good, and breakfast choices include fried (not only scrambled) eggs. Also (for Americans) has ice machines, though not advertised in in-room directory (accidentally discovered). Greatly enjoyed the stay and would stay... More
