The Thistle is in the middle of the town centre, off Sauchiehall Street. The hotel has an underground car park, costing £6 per overnight stay, which I found very reasonable given the location (that being said, I’m from London, so of course that sounds cheap). The hotel was welcoming, cosy, and efficient and had a Starbucks in reception which was... More

We stayed for just the one night in a 2 double bed standard room. It was clean and spacious with all the usual facilities. The pool is small but warm and clean. Breakfast was a little expensive but nice although there was a delay in bringing our tea and coffee. We did experience an early morning wake up call from... More

Stayed at this hotel for 26 weeks and have been very well looked after by all staff. Joined the signature reward scheme in December but have not received any rewards. Hotel is changing owners now and despite continued requests to resolve this (logging in states never stayed) no one has helped or offered an explanation. This is the only downside... More

A wonderful weekend spent at this great centrally located hotel. We booked the Thistle Glasgow as the base for our hen party weekend. The spa was a great bonus, and all the hens enjoyed time in the swimming pool, hot tub, sauna and steam room. On the first night we organised a meal for the bride to be and her... More

This was our first hotel stop on a taste of Scotland tour. The hotel is nice and has a good location in the city. The room was decent with a comfortable bed. Only complaint was that only 1 towel was given in the room and we called to ask for an additional towel, but never received it.

We stayed here July 24 - 26, 2015. When we checked in early about noon, we noticed they were changing the name on the outside of the building. The hotel staff told us the management company was changing next week. The hotel had a lot of business, our room on the 6th floor was large, great a/c, large windows, fast... More

Stayed here for a couple of weeks with work. Hotel is well located and perfectly decent. However it has a feel of being a bit run down, service is a bit sloppy. They have huge coach loads of North American staying which isn't a problem but they don't really have the space/staff to deal with them so you often have... More

I stayed for 5 nights at the hotel while on business. I was given a room with two single beds which I found surprising as I requested a double and expect this in many cheaper hotels. After requesting twice the beds were pushed together. The room I was given felt very dated and I have had better rooms there in... More
