“Adequate city centre Glasgow hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

Not bad over all. It is largely mediocre. Not particularly cheap but is OK. Breakfast was average. Service was OK. Spare bath towels ar e kept in a drawer which doesn't make much sense. The toilets smelt like an old folks home so they need a good clean. Rooms are acceptable and fairly basic. Would stay there again but it's not great

Stayed here for two nights for a wedding in Glasgow. The service you get is great, they can't do enough for you. The hotel is clean and fresh, as is the room. There's also great parking facilities in a secure parking lot. The room was a standard double and had great space. very clean and up to date. The food here was brilliant too. Didn't have time to try out the pool, but would go back anytime!! Very accommodating!

Recently stayed at this hotel for one night during a business trip.

The hotel is situated right in the city centre and is therefore close by to various pubs and restaurants. Check in was quick and efficient.

My room was situated on the second floor and despite its city centre location there were no noise issues. I was allocated a " premier executive room" whatever that means. The room was large and contained two double beds so I guess could be used as a family room. The room and bathroom were both spotlessly clean. My only small gripe was that the shower was a little low so you had to duck to wash your hair. While not an issue for me others may find this awkward. In addition the tv was a bit tricky to work out.

My room had air conditioning. I am not sure however if all rooms have this.

The Wi Fi was free however the service was patchy and in the end I gave up. Perhaps the signal needs a boost.

The bed was comfortable and I slept well.

I spent the evening in the hotel and used the bar. The service was good although as is normal the prices were al little steep with a bottle of beer costing £4.50. I am sure that if you venture out you will find cheaper places to have a drink. I ordered food from the bar and again a little expensive but it was well cooked and tasty.

Breakfast was buffet style and was amongst the best I have had. A wide range of options both hot and cold. Being Scotland there were local foods on offer including haggis if you fancied it. Again food was of a good standard and it was good to see chef coming round to make sure all was ok.

Overall I would recommend this hotel as a suitable location if you are visiting Central Glasgow for either business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Check what offers you can get as larger rooms may be available.

We were on a buss tour of Scotland and stayed for two nights in the Thistle. The service we received was good enough and the breakfast was the standard Scottish (read also Full English) breakfast. We had no problems at all and everyhting came off as scheduled by the tour company.

stayed here for 2 nights. great hotel with an excellent location as the style mile is only a minute walk. Great facilities at the hotel with excellent rooms. If going with family then the double room is a great pick for cheap and can accommodate 4 people.

Attended a function at this hotel and stayed overnight. Food was good but they were trying to sell a cheaper option of a branded spirit. Once I pointed out the error I received the correct brand. Our room was spacious and clean with a king sized bed. Although it is in the centre of Glasgow, there was no noise from the street below. The hotel has two lifts but unfortunately one was out of order during our stay, causing a lengthy delay if you wanted to move around the hotel. A car park under the hotel charges £6 per night. I would use this hotel again.

Stayed here on a hen night. Not much in the way of choice of cocktails but the hotel was everything you expect of a good hotel. Would stay again, close to main shopping area and good service. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment.
