Our son booked us in for a meal on the 22nd of may and paid for it by card. Meal was really disappointing and the choice on the menu was poor.

Don't let the name fool you. Not much of a view. The buffet breakfast was adequate. Nothing special. Some dishes the we were not familiar with, but I suppose that they are quite ordinary to UK folk.

Good food at a reasonable price. Friendly staff and lovely environment. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and attended to our every request.

We had a fabulous evening in Windows Restaurant with friends and were excellently looked after by Amy and her team on duty Both service and food were first class and topped off with some of the best views you can get of Glasgow's skyline from this hidden gem above George Square. We'll be back soon!

Went here for afternoon tea. The young waiter, Gary I think was his name was so helpful and attentive thank you, didn't get a chance to say it to you as your shift had ended. The restaurant is on the top floor of the hotel which was immaculate. We were lucky enough to go on a lovely sunny day and... More

Enjoyed a great tea for 2 for a mere 20 pounds. Sitting on the top floor of the hotel, overlooking the city made for a beautiful backdrop. Of course the tea included numerous finger sandwiches and delicious pastries.
