These apartments are linked to the next door Ambassador Hotel they are owned by the same group, the rooms are large with lofty ceilings which add to the spacious feel, the front apartment which we stayed in looked out over the Kelvin river and bridge which even in winter was a pleasant view. The road had been blocked with bollards... More

We are staying at the moment in these apartments. The rooms are huge, kitchen is well stocked, bathroom is good. Very close to shops and trains and lots of food places. My only gripe is the parking..you do have around the back parking as street parking is always full, but it's down a narrow back lane and can be kind... More

We made a great choice to stay in Embassy Apartments in Glasgow's West End. Tucked behind the Botanical Gardens on a quiet street, only a short walk to a busy Byres Road with shops and restaurants. Each apartment has a fully equipped kitchen - great if you are after self-catering. It is very clean, quiet, and convenient place. I will... More

Stayed here on a Friday night as we were off running the Highland Fling race on the Saturday which starts in Milngavie. It was a perfect location as took very little time to travel North the next morning. We checked in at the hotel and the lovely lady at reception showed us to the apartment. It was a large room...

The place was easy to find as it was in Google maps already, just don't use the postcode as it takes you to the wrong end of the road. The apartments' reception is in the hotel next door and were greeted by an excellent host who was extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. The apartment itself was clean... More

This apartment facility was excellent. The studio apartment was very large with a double and single bed. I particularly liked the convenience of the kitchen facilities. Despite it being bitterly cold outside the room was very warm throughout my stay. Check in was very quick and the staff on the few occasions we spoke were very friendly and efficient. One... More

We previously stayed in the ambassador hotel which is owned by the same people and returned for the great value and location. I shared a large room with my parents which had some sofas and a small kitchen so I can imagine it could be useful if you want to save money on eating out. The apartments are in a... More

Lovely clean and quiet apartments a short walk from the West End's Byers Road. Great location and easy walking distance to dozens of quirky shops and restaurants. Only downside of the apartment was it was really cold but there were heaters in the room and it was fine as soon as it warmed up.
