I stayed here for 3 nights - booked in by my company, and I can honestly say I would happily come back and stay for a short break. I have been put up in a few glasgow hotels through work and this was by far the best one so far. The welcome was nice, staff were cheery on reception. The... More

Went to an awards dinner dance here and was bowled over by the quality of food provided at dinner! Not your usual "average" (at best) mass catering, but a really really good meal, Lovely starter of mini quiche with a lovely mixed leaf salad and dressing, the quiche had the most light, yet crispy, short ((very) shortcrust pastry and a...

The hotel staff were always helpful when asked. Our room was a good size with a large window which we liked. Although a little dated the room was clean and comfortable. The added bonus of security to the rooms was a plus. We found the location good for getting around the city and there were plenty of places to eat... More

The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, and the wedding was lovely. We were on the third floor and the room was fine the beds were comfortable and we had everything you... More

Recently spent a 3 night break at Thistle Hotel with a group. Rooms were clean and comfortable and secured access to rooms was a bonus. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

I booked the Thistle because of the spa facilities which we didn't really get a chance to use. The room was okay, however I've stayed in lower rated hotels where the rooms have been just as nice. Breakfast should have been good and a proper treat given that it's a four star hotel, but we had to make a complaint.... More

Our tour company booked this for our group. We only stayed one night and therefore didn't get to see much of the city. The hotel room was spacious, comfortable and clean. Free wifi was provided and the property has secured access to the rooms. For short stays and business travel this is a good choice. The buffet breakfast was typical... More

Stayed here for a few nights. First impressions from the reception area are that the hotel looks very modern, bright and spacious and actually it is. The bar, reception, dining and fitness areas are really nice. However you can easily see where the hotel has chosen to spend their money when you open the door to your room. I think... More
