Stayed here for 1 night and to be honest I couldn't wait to leave the next morning. Ground floor single room was clean but the carpet had seen better days.Room was very small. Staff not very friendly and breakfast was not all that.

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us, as you can see from other reviews we very rarely get a negative response. With regard to the room being small, it is a standard single room, and has all the same facilities as the other rooms, en suite, tv, wifi etc. Had you wished a larger room you... More

Very good value for money hotel in a great spot. Car parking is at the rear via a narrow alleyway and the rooms are generously sized. Very close to an excellent whiskey bar Oran Mor a converted church, and next to the botanic gardens. We both had a lovely time there.

Stayed in large double self catering apartment. Beautiful big room with views over the Kelvin Walkway. Very quiet street. Well located in the West end and close to public transport. Great kitchen facilities. Immaculately clean. Comfortable bed. Very helpful staff. Huge range of interesting shopping and local places of interest near by.

Great wee single room with everything one needs! Comfy bed, closet space, strong heating, and carpet for my tootsies. Friendly and dedicated staff, especially Ms Lynn who was a true guardian angel when I needed a bit of special help. A bit off the beaten track, just beyond the Botanic Garden and off the standard freebie maps, but a very... More

Me and my mother stayed here for one night, it is only a 5 minute taxi into the city centre, the beds were very comfy and the receptionist was lovely, the thing we loved most was the fact when you went to bed at night it was absolutely silent! You would never know we were near the city centre, we... More

Very welcoming and helpful receptionist. Clean and comfortable 3* hotel. As a previous reviewer mentioned, it is within an older building but well-kept and has more character than a modern concrete block. Perfect location for Botanics, Underground, University and KelvinGrove Park with useful parking space.

We stayed for a long weekend and will definatly stay at The Ambassador again. This is a lovely old building so dont expect it to be modern inside. The staff were so nice, Lynn seemed to be there at all times during our stay and she was always smiling, happy and helpful, and made a tasty breakfast. The Hotel has... More

Had a lovely extended stay here recently while starting a new job in Glasgow. Ticked all the boxes - beautiful West End location, free parking, comfortable bedroom and great welcome. Felt more like staying in a grand house than a hotel. Special thanks to Lynn who gave me lots of advice on places to eat, shop and even websites to... More

Best breakfast ever! Business trip with my wife for two nights. Great location for any needs. First time to Glasgow and Lynn at reception was able to advise us on what to see locally. Would recommend the botanical gardens and just a general walk around the local area. There is a lot to take in. No restriction on the parking... More
