“nice relaxing stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

This hotel was booked for it's location to what we wanted to do in and around Glasgow. Mainly across the road from Art galleries and short walk to Byres road and Botanic gardens.
We booked a family room and were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room with enough beds to sleep 5 (we needed 4).
Shower room, although slightly dated (it was pink) was very clean. It's how I rate a hotel so again was happy.
Decor of hotel was satisfactory but with cleanliness standards being above satisfactory the decor could be overlooked.
Breakfast was again satisfactory but i personally feel there should be more to offer on the continental side and tinned fruit is really not acceptable in this day and age.
There was a small bar/ retaurant available in the basement and on our arrival it was Gaelic conversation night.
All in all we were all happy with our stay, however the TV was very small for the size of room and reading text on screen was very difficult. We also had to tune it in ourselves.

Dear Sir/Madam

I appreciate your very kind comments relating to your recent stay at the Argyll Hotel. I was very pleased to read you enjoyed everything during your stay, we certainly are very fortunate with the central location.
We are working on upgrading all bathrooms and it’s a rolling programme. Unfortunately room you were in is still to be upgraded.
Thank you for highlighting the tined fruit issue which has been replaced with fresh fruit now.
You also mentioned the tv which has also been changed to a bigger TV and I’m sure if you had mentioned to a member of staff about tuning they would have been more than happy to help.


Feedback is always important as it is a vital way of reviewing the level of service and facilities we provide our guests so as to make improvements. Once again thank you for your truly valuable comments.

Thank you for staying with us at the Argyll Hotel Glasgow.

Kind regards

Stayed here one night as attending a meeting in Glasgow. Had a single room which was very small. Had dinner in Sutherlands restaurant which was average. Very quiet with no atmosphere. Went to bed at 23.00. Guest in next room arrived at the room 20 minutes later as I was falling asleep. The bathroom fan was put on and then I realised how thin the walls were. Every sound was heard. The corridor was very noisy as workmen were staying and rather noisy on return to the hotel. Quality of sleep was therefore very poor. Breakfast was very nice - of good quality and served by a very pleasant waitress. Wouldn't return to this hotel in a hurry.

Stayed 5 nights again and cant fault the Argyll Hotel. Staff at the front desk and in the restaurant all excellent-cheery and will go out of there way to help. The location is fantastic to all of the University/Bryers Rd/West End attractions, the city centre and the SECC. Plenty of pubs, restaurants around, beautiful Kelvin Grove Park and art gallery over the road. The direct airport bus outside cant be beat.
Friendly service at reasonable prices and well situarted -well done Argyll Hotel!

Booked a few weeks in advance for £48, if I had paid the full price I may not have been quite as happy. The hotel is what it is, a fairly ok 3 star, I appreciate the efforts made with the tartan themed rooms, which I suppose would make overseas visitors feel they are getting a good 'Scottish' experience. However perhaps if the cost of the vast mounts of tartan in the room had been instead been used to attend to small details such as the toilet flush handle being replaced with a chrome one instead of a cheap flimsy white plastic one or if the public toilet type toilet tissue dispenser were replaced with a toilet roller holder, it may lead to return custom ... As for the mattresses & pillows, it's time to replace both. The mattress was such a cheap one that when you sat on the edge, you could feel the divan base & i did not actually think lumpy foam pillows existed anymore. Neither of us slept very well, despite there being no noise whatsoever from either other guests or traffic etc.
Our room (101) smelt slightly of urine but I could also smell it by the lift & in the corridor leading to the room, I think air freshner had been liberally sprayed but this made it worse as to me it smelt like a public loo. We did tell the receptionist about it & she offered us room 106 but unfortunately the restaurant extractor was below the room.
We had breakfast & I have to say this was the saving grace for the Argyll, if the had not been so fresh, plentiful & tasty we would give this hotel a poor rating.
The area is not bad & you could easily get to the west end and other great locations.
Both my OH & I got our hair cut round the corner in Argyll St at a very funky salon (Cusp) who do standbys. Lucky for us when we arrived at 2pm the receptionist told us check was from 3pm (it's actually 2pm) so we wandered round the corner & found Cusp...
There are great places to eat just up the rd & it fairly centrally located., just not sure it's a 3 star, more of a 2 star, less tartan & more finishing touches may be the answer for the Argyll

Dear MrsMackmehappy,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Argyll Hotel. We carefully read all your comments and suggestions and we appreciate the detailed feedback.

We are very sorry we could not meet all your expectation and we truly apologise for any inconvenience caused. As soon as you check out the housekeeping went in the room and a deep cleaning was made. At that point, we could not actually detect a urine smell but we carefully cleaned the carpet.

Attention to details is definitely a valuable advice and we are constantly trying our best to improve our services. Your comments will be presented to our general manager to remedy the areas mentioned within your review.

Thank you in particular for highlighting our breakfast and we are very glad you enjoyed it.

I do hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future.

Best Regards,
Flavia

I booked this hotel for my mom to stay while she came to my graduation at Glasgow Uni. I literally walked up and down Sauchiehall Street and looked at every hotel. This one exceeded the rest by far. The reception people were friendly and the rooms were clean (although small). My mom loved the breakfast and the location was perfect. 15 minute walk to the uni and 15 minute walk to city centre. The price was right as well and i loved the tartan rooms! Would recommend anyone to stay here!

Pleasant surprise! Met with a warm, cosy welcome. Hotel very clean and staff friendly. Definitely great value for money. Room big and although at front of the hotel, noise level was minimum. Looked as though room had been recently refurbished with beautiful decor and en- suite. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Excellent breakfast. Extremely happy with our experience and would definitely return. Very convenient to both Westend and City centre.

Room Tip: Room 306 was were we stayed and would recommend. Although at front of hotel, it was third floor and...
