In the centre of Glasgow, I did an overnight before getting the train to go south. This hotel has got it right for cleanliness, being personal, offering a very Scottish atmosphere. Breakfast for my stay was continental which included many extras than just a slice of toast, it was lovely snd set out very attractively. My room was huge and... More

We were welcomed with a wee dram of whisky and found our room was extremely comfortable. We had an excellent evening meal and for guests of the hotel there is a good discount on menu prices. All in all we can thoroughly recommend this hotel as a good place to stay in the heart of the city. Our only slight... More

I'd never visited Glasgow before May 2016, so I was delighted to have lucked into staying at The Pipers' Tryst. We enjoyed our stay so much that we extended our visit an additional night from our initial plans. It seemed imperative to visit the National Piping Centre, because, well, bagpipes and we were in Scotland. Bonus: there's a hotel and... More

I have stayed at the Piper's Tryst Hotel on two occasions. Both times, I have received the warmest welcome and hospitality on the part of the staff. They are very helpful should you ask for tips on where to dine etc. The rooms are clean and rather spacious, and the location is absolutely great - just a short walk to... More

We ate here when we last came to Glasgow, and were impressed with the food and staff. So we decided to stay this time. The staff were just as friendly and helpful, the room clean, and the bed comfortable. We ate dinner here again and the food was just as good as last time. The hotel had a problem with... More

How refreshing to stay in a lovely hotel in the heart of the city instead of the chain hotels with their corporate feel. The staff, the décor and the history of the Piper's Tryst make this a wonderful place to stay when enjoying the great city that is Glasgow. Continental breakfast was pitched perfectly to our needs. The restaurant menu... More

Lovely small hotel with great staff. Be aware that the bedrooms are small and there is no elevator available. That said, the staff is friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are small but adequate and nicely decorated. You are welcomed with a dram of good scotch. The food in the restaurant is excellent.

I always stay in the Pipers Tryst when in Glasgow which is at least once a year, but I missed last year. What a surprise this time. The rooms have been nicely renovated, new carpets, new bathrooms. Makes it even better and cannot be beaten on value for money. New menu in the restaurant as well, yum.

What a lovely review! We are delighted to be your Glasgow home and so thrilled you returned to stay with us once again. We have spent a considerable amount of money upgrading our bedroom wing to ensure that guests are well looked after. As a charity (The National Piping Centre) it does take some time to raise this capital! It... More

The hotel is a walking distance to the city centre, bus and train stations. The facilities in the room were to a high standard. I had to leave at 4.45am and they had a breakfast tray made for me! I'm definitely coming back!

Pretty good for a cheap hotel apart from a rumbling noise that was like a bus idling outside the window. Could actually feel vibrations in the bathroom. Pretty annoying when trying to sleep but not as annoying as the manageress(?) telling me it was a normal ventilation sound that you'd expect in any hotel when it blatantly wasn't. Had to... More

Dear Chris Thank you for your feedback. I am terribly sorry about your recent stay and the noise that you had within your room. We are an old church built in 1882 therefore the building does make noise and regrettably the heating system has a quiet murmur too. Most guests do not even hear it but there are a percentage...
