“Lovely meal at big corporate event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

I attended a very large corporate dinner at this hotel, and the meal was one of the best I've had at an event like this. The service was excellent too. I stayed overnight - room was fine and breakfast was really good. Reception staff were really pleasant and helpful. All in all, excellent.

Stayed hete for one nite.
Staff where very helpfull and friendly. Got our room key. Upgraded. Room was big two beds. Comfy. Tea and coffee supplied with plenty milk. Not just the normal 2 caps..

Shower was hot and plenty off power.
Breakfast in the morning was self service not my favourite but have to say fresh and plentiful. A treat. Toast machine was quick. And staff on hand for tea fill ups. On score 1to 10 i would give a 9.!! Why not a 10?. no reason no complaints just 10 seams to good to be true so a 10..

Only down side
bar prices. Way to expensive. Nice bar. But glasgow has plenty nice bars at half the price for 2 drinks. A rethink needs done. Empty bar. No atmosphere. Plenty people in hotel

Bur apart from that. Cant fault hotel

Had 32 Trefoil Members for a weekend for National Annual General Meeting recently. The rooms were all en-suite, staff were very good and helpful at all times and answered queries with a smile.
We were made very welcome and the food was great, full English breakfast, porridge and 3 course evening meals. We have travelled all over United Kingdom for the AGM's and Glasgow was our best experience. All our members were very pleased and the Hotel is so close to Central Glasgow. Easy access to all local Musuems etc. Wiil certainly be returning again.

I was going to a evening "dinner" and entertainment for Prom. Our tickets cost £60 each and we were informed that a small amount of alcohol would be available to have with our meal. As we arrived at the entrance to our function room we were patted down to make sure we had no concealed drinks like being at the airport. The meal was a let down. The soup was tasteless the chicken was nothing special and the cheese cake was ordinary. This could have been forgiven it the staff had been anything other than down right rude. In one instance the organiser of the event was late for the starter as he was trying to arrange seating. He came back to find his food taken away and when he asked for his roll it was as good as thrown at him. I do not normally do reviews but I was so disappointed I felt I had to tell people.

I recently attended a function at the thistle hotel, to which I was extremely disappointed in. We were promised champagne on arrival, wine on the tables and a bar for any drinks we wanted throughout our meal, however, we received none of this. We were greeted with orange and passion fruit juice on arrival, had no drinks on the table - (not even water!) and when I tried to receive a drink at the bar, I was told I was only aloud a soft drink, which seems ridiculous as I am 18 years of age. To add to this complication, we were welcomed by some very dry staff who didnt seem interested in our concerns, whether this was because we were all reasonably young, I'm not sure, but I definitely didn't feel very welcome. We then received our starter course before the majority of us had sat down, and everything felt a bit rushed. Overall, I would not recommend this hotel for a function - especially after paying £60 for a ticket!
