Hotel was in a great spot. Close to botanic gardens and the local bars. Very welcoming. Room was clean and ideal for a nights stay. Plenty of choice for breakfast and are happy to change the menu to suit. Would defo visit again.

This is a nice little find in the West End of Glasgow. It has friendly, helpful and attentive staff, nicely decorated and fitted rooms and a good location too. Parking is slightly tricky as the road outside that sits just above Great Western Road is metered from 8am to 10pm but they do have pre-paid cards available at a discount.

Stayed for 4 nights. Absolutely love this hotel - nicely refurbished, spotlessly clean, attentive and caring service, tremendous breakfasts and nicely situated for subway and the Botanical Gardens. Definitely worth at walk to the gardens and along the River Kelvin. Great walks around - the amazing 'Hogwarts' architecture of the university and museums, and the quirky bars / restaurants in...

The service at this hotel was top notch, from early check-in, to calling taxis, to free food, to the location. A short walk to Ashton Lane. So glad we stayed here. Azam made everything an absolute pleasure.

I highly recommend Argyll Western and will stay again with Argyll on my next trip to Glasgow. The room was clean. The bathroom was clean. The sheets, pillowcases and blankets were fresh and clean. Always had plenty of hot water. The room was prepared daily to include making beds, bathroom cleanup and vacuuming. There was very little noise during daylight... More

We had great hopes for this hotel. The room was comfortable enough but the pillows where a little hard. However the worst of it was the breakfast. The scrambled eggs where runny, bacon anaemic and the sausages horrible. My husband couldn't eat his. We complain at the time but didn't get much of a response. It is especially disappointing as...

The bed was very comfy, I got a room with a nice view at the foot of the bed too so that was a nice touch. Everything was clean and welcoming. And for £60 as a last minute booking I couldn't have done better.

Stayed for a couple of nights. The bed was lumpy and the loo was very noisy because of its make. We were in a room facing the Great Western Road and it was very noisy too. Didn't eat so cannot comment about the breakfast which was £5per head
