The room was dated .Bathroom was tiny and shower was from the 70's. Im really not one for complaining and have stayed in a lot of hotels , but this one... More

Normally stay in a hotel when we visit Glasgow but this time decided to try the Ambassador Apartments. First thing to say is the location is great just a short walk to Byers Road and the Subway. We stayed in Apartment 1 and it was excellent.Good sized Room with en suite. The high ceilings make this a really airy room... More

Although the hotel was very well situated for buses, tourist bus stop, botanical gardens (stunning place to visit) the staff member who was at the desk at the time of our arrival was to say the least the most unwelcoming receptionist I have ever met. He didnt welcome us at all as visitors and more or less immediately asked for... More

The hotel is good for 3 stars. Very clean and hotel staff very friendly and breakfast was fabulous. The manager greeted us on our arrival asked about breakfast and we were asked if we could make a quick decision to tell them if we wished breakfast, as they would have to get extra staff in, decided that we would. on...

On arrival you were informed that breakfast could be added at a cost of £8 each, when you enquired as to how soon we needed to know, I remarked that as soon as possible would be good, but I did not stress that it had to be immediately, you said you would go straight upstairs and call your sister, at...

We recently stayed here for one night. It's a little tricky to find using a GPS, but we eventually got there, parking is difficult on the street in front, but there is a small carpark around the back. This was a last minute booking, and we were pleasantly surprised. The outlook of the hotel is lovely and inviting. The room... More

When I got into the room, the bed was broken. I got moved to a room that far too small. The first room was small but the 2nd room was like staying in a cupboard! There was bleach stains on the carpet, hole in shower room roof that was stuffed with news paper. Lovely building from the outside but I've... More

With regard to the broken bed, as soon as the manager was aware of the problem you were moved to another room, unfortunately the hotel was busy and there was only 1 room available, it is unfortunate that this room was smaller than the room you should have been in, however you were only in the smaller room for 1...

Situated in a very leafy quiet road in the West End of Glasgow, minutes from Byres Road, opposite the Botanical Garden, the hotel is in an ideal location. It claims to be 3* which is accurate. The double room we had was small, likewise the bathroom was a bit tired, but it was all clean and warm. The bed was... More

Very small single room with not much room to move around but reasonable shower. Good breakfast, especially the cooked options. Okay position. As a female travelling alone I would have liked a safety chain on the door. Also the space for luggage is minimal. If you're on the ground floor don't expect to get much sleep as lots of noise...

This was our 3rd stay here. Its such a nice place in a lovely quiet area of Glasgow. We always feel right at home here. Its not posh or luxurious but it has everything you need and it is clean and very comfortable. Always get a good night's sleep in the Ambassador/Embassy. Right beside the Botanic Gardens and Byres Road,... More

Hotel car park was difficult to find, there is free on road parking which is probably used by the workers in the area as there was never any room left. We stayed one night and took up the offer of an 'upgrade' for an extra £9.00 which gave us a room in the apartments next door. The room was large,... More
