We got married here on 17 May this year and have been told by so many of our guests that it was the best wedding they have ever been to! We thought it was going to be a good day but it was amazing. Caitlin helped us book our big day and we were lucky enough to have her on... More

A beautiful hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Very quiet, comfortable and well appointed rooms. A fantastic standard of meals in the Scottish tradition. We staid at the hotel before and after our wedding. The staff throughout the wedding and our stay were highly professional and could not have done more to help and assist. A hassle free experience.... More

recently got married here and have nothing but praise for the amazing staff. Gemma, the general manager, met with me and my fiancé on several occasions before my big day to discuss every little detail - and to put my mind at ease that everything would run smoothly... and it did! All of the staff were amazing and I felt... More

I stayed here on business just after the Commonwealth Games. It's clean, warm and inviting. The girls on reception and bar are lovely and helpful and it's very convenient for central Glasgow. I didn't eat there but my experience was 100% positive and I would recommend to anyone - love the tartan in my room! I will stay again. Yours... More

The Pipers Tryst ruined my wedding. They completely messed up my table plan which spoiled the meal. They were unapologetic and very unhelpful on the day. The rooms were average and they did absolutely nothing to make our room special for our wedding night. STAY AWAY!

Thank you for taking time to write this review almost 14 months after your wedding. We are rather stunned and upset by your comments as at the time (June 2013) you left us with the impression that you had a lovely wedding day. In regards to your seating plan, we clarified back then, that it is normal practise for guests... More

We stayed here because of attending a party being hosted at the Piping Centre, of which the hotel is a part. (No, we did not hear bagpipe rehearsal.) There are only 8 rooms. They are small but beautifully decorated with tartan prints, and the bed was the most comfortable we had on our trip. The breakfast that is included is... More

We recently had our first stay in the Hotel which was a treat from our daughter who has stayed on various occasions and highly recommended it. We were not disappointed and found the location, food, bedrooms and the staff all excellent. We also would highly recommend Pyper's Tryst and it will certainly be our number one choice whenever we visit... More

We stayed here in June 2013. The rooms, while not large, were very comfortable. The location was great, within walking distance to all downtown Glasgow attractions and shopping. I really loved the food at the restaurant downstairs and all the servers were very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again.
