I stayed at the Berkeley Hotel the weekend of April 11/12 2014. My wife booked the McCallum Junior Suite for the weekend as we were going to the Scottish Grand National in celebration of my 40th birthday. First of all, the room is not a suite. It is a standard sized hotel room and should not be advertised as a... More

Fantastic experience staying here on 13th April. The funky decor in the main hotel is a talking point and adds to the chilled, welcoming atmosphere. Rooms are gorgeous, well equipped and quiet, dining and cocktails are excellent and staff are pleasant and chatty. Got a promotional price from Glasgow's Great Deal, so not sure of the standard charges, but I'd... More

We stayed at this hotel in January and had a brilliant time. The hotel is quite quirky, all the rooms are different and the staff were just great. Ate at the hotel and the food was very good. A real find - try it if you can.

Stayed the night with my wife. From the moment we arrived, to leaving next morning the staff were fantastic. Were extremely helpful. The room we stayed in was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The food was also top notch.will definitely be going back.

What a great afternoon we had on Saturday, fantastic food and unique surroundings. Pretty much had the place to ourselves at the time we went, started to get busier just as we were leaving, so timed it good. Staff very attentive and couldn't have done enough for us. Compliments to all and the kitchen staff. We'll be back for sure.

Megan was in reception & she made us feel very welcomed. Michelle took us to our room & told us a bit about the history of the hotel, which was... More

Recently had coffee in this establishment and was very surprised at the lack of organisation and service. Thinking it a one off, I returned about a week later and found the front door locked. Not sure whats going on but will be staying away from now on. Disappointing.
