Only issue was we were woken up at 7am by construction works across the road as we left the window open, which is not the hotels fault obviously but it did affect the experience. Then at about 8am we were... More

Originally thought we would use this as a base although when we checked in and had a drink menu looked perfect so after a look around we came back and had drinks and dinner. Great choice as menu was lovely, full of Scottish... More

My husband and I stayed at the Pipers Tryst as part of an itison deal which included breakfast in the morning. We stayed on a Sunday evening due to little availability on any other day. We arrived to the hotel bar (no reception), billed as a “restaurant with rooms” and found the staff pleasant enough. They explained that as there... More

My partner and I stayed here for £48 through the Itison deal and it was great. Our room was lovely and a big comfy bed. Everything was very clean. We had the Pipe Major's breakfast in the morning which set us for the day! My only one wee complaint would be charging us £1 for a bottle of water -... More

We will definitely return. Small Scottish 8 room hotel which oozes character.Friendly staff, comfortable room, and the cooked Scottish breakfast was perfect. Very clean. With it's central location it was easy to walk to main shopping malls etc and theatres. Even walking from Queen street railway station was only 10 mins max. I especially would recommend it to tourists wanting... More

I recently had a day's work in Glasgow city centre. My previous experience with hotels in this area is somewhat variable and the Pipers' Tryst was recommended by a colleague, so I booked a couple of nights there. The booking was easy and straightforward using their web site. I received a warm and friendly greeting upon arrival and was soon... More
