“Wedding suites”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Attended a friend's wedding in the ceremony room recently. Was very light, clean & classy. Was very surprised. We arrived about 10mins before the ceremony was due to begin & were told we were late & holding things up. Felt utterly embarrassed walking in even though we were on time. Beautiful room & building just be super early incase they decide to start early

Could only see the ground floor because of other events so no guided tours - bugger! Very pleasant staff though

“A nice tour of an Impressive building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

The city chambers of Glasgow is a very impressive building in a nice set up on the square. I came there with a group (I am a tour guide from Israel) and we enjoyed very much the special building with the stunning staircases. The guide that showed us around was nice and did his lob in a very friendly way. I am planning my next groups to come there again.

“Joke”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

Second time visited for the free tour. Second time cancelled told by another person who had turned up for the tour no notice giving reason apology etc. A lovely building which Glasgow should be using when possible as one of its main tourist attractions. Think it is a joke when go to Argyll shopping centre and am asked by two different gentlemen dressed in costume can they help me. Difference between two venues marked. If the council wish to attract visitors they need to sort themselves out. I would have been willing to pay for the tour. To happen once possibly excuseable twice a joke.
