    Very good

    Location, variety of cocktails.

    The decor spoiled a very nice building. Disappointed at the amount of public space. Bathroom too large at the expense of the bedroom. Not keen on the Harris Tweed seating.

    Fabulous

    The staff was very friendly and the room was spacious for a European hotel. Quite location and not far from city center 10min. Walk in nice weather, also near central station

    Breakfast was very limited and lake of variety the hotel is located up high in the end of the street which require afford to clime but getting to downtown was easy because you will go down not up

    A very smart hotel in an excellent location in a quiet square in Central Glasgow. We had a lovely room, very comfortable with a beautiful marble bathroom.The staff were friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast. Excellent value.

    Lovely building in a good location. Well appointed and good modern interior design.

    Bathroom fittings more for looks than functionality. Shame no shelf in shower or towel rails. Tea always came out too weak.

    Fabulous

    The staff are very attentive, friendly and courteous at all times. Nothing was too much bother for them. The bed was really comfortable too. Breakfast was great.

    The bar/restaurant area is not very intimate. Very bright and fairly basic furniture and fixtures. Many better places to eat and drink out in Glasgow. We also had to move rooms twice as the shower packed up in the first and the second was roasting hot. But the staff were very helpful in solving the problem

    This is one of the greatest hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff cannot do enough for you. The decor is fanatstic and the beds extremely comfortable. The breakfast buffet is also excellent. We chose this place because of its proximity to the College of Surgeons (just around the corner), but I have to say the hotel surpassed any of our expectations. Excellent.

    The staff really could not have been more helpful. They found a room for us to store our bikes in, taxis appeared promptly when required and our bags were moved to our rooms before we'd checked in. We loved the room decor and the grand entrance plus the quiet of the square.

    Fabulous

    Excellent evening meal and extensive breakfast. Very helpful man who brought the bags in from the car and explained the room features.

    Arrived with my 88 year old mother, who found climbing the steps up to the hotel tiring. We had requested twin beds on booking and were assured on check in that the room had twins beds but found a king bed. The staff were apologetic and remade the beds during dinner. The room, while very nice, was in the basement with a 3/4th frosted/opaque window - not really what I was seeking in a 5 star hotel. The bathroom was luxurious but the shower had no shelf for soap or shampoo which was very inconvenient for my mum. My bedside lamp didn't work even with a new light bulb, but a small desk lamp was quickly produced, accompanied by apologies from its bearer. The large dust bunnies should have been removed by whom ever remade the beds.

    Superb

    I found the staff on arrival very welcoming and helpful. I have to say the young chap named Michael who dropped our bags to our room was very helpful and funny. We had dinner in the restaurant that night and have to say it was the best meal I have ever eaten! ( and I have eaten alot) oh and get the mash. Also our waitress was excellent. It’s very easy to navigate the city . It only takes five minutes and you’re at the centre and you literally shop till you drop....as we did many times or spend hours taking pictures of the wonderful architecture.

    On the Friday night we were told that the upstairs bar was very nice for a cocktail and after dinner it was not much of a walk...but alas we were left standing at the bar for ten minutes till a member of staff said we would be seated in a few minutes and sorry about the wait so we waited a additional ten minutes to only have another member of staff tell us there is no room, she was obviously rushed off her feet and was all apologies so we didn’t mind leaving to head to another bar. If they have a very busy bar the need more staff especially when you need to turn guests of the hotel away. We felt that as guests we should have been a priority but felt we were left out in the cold. This is a very small thing but was the only thing we could

    The design and decor of the hotel, room and spa were really impressive. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The spa was luxurious.

    The view on the ground floor from our room was into the atrium area which was dark and gloomy.

    Staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were superb.

    The dining room is not laid out very well - we sat at a table which seemed to be in the middle of a walkway. Food was also a little overpriced for the standard offered.

    The staff were happy, helpful, attentive and efficient. The ambience and the food were excellent.

    The lighting in the bedroom was challenging for two ancient guests who enjoy reading!
