Hen Party

A wonderful weekend spent at this great centrally located hotel. We booked the Thistle Glasgow as the base for our hen party weekend. The spa was a great bonus, and all the hens enjoyed time in the swimming pool, hot tub, sauna and steam room. On the first night we organised a meal for the bride to be and her guests in a private dining room. It couldn't have gone better! The events team prior to our arrival were fantastic (thank you Rhianna!) and the team on the night wonderful. We had the bonus of a private bar in our room (very welcome as we were in fancy dress!) and were able to hire PA equipment and decorate the room -perfect! The bedrooms were great - a good size and very clean. Breakfast each morning was very tasty, with a great mix of continental and cooked foods. I'd defintely stay again.

Lovely hotel location

Lovely hotel location! Beautiful lobby & great front desk attentive staff. However, if you have any children- be warned, they won't allow them in the pool or spa tub unless you are in the water in suit WITH them. Ratio of 1 adult per 2 children. I understand water safety- but my kids are advanced swimmers. These rules are not publicized and therefore I did not pack a suit ( coming from states) and I had 3 very sad kids for 8 days/ 7 nights. They would even let me sit poolside and allow them in. Think with paying for amenities, I would be able to use them . Also front desk told me they couldn't get restaurant res at a place I found on yelp- but when we walked there, the place was empty & tables & dining was very much available.... Weird. I don't want to bring the review down- it's a lovely hotel & great location! Just a warning to families!

Just what I wanted! A restful, quite luxurious overnight bath & bed before continuing my journey. Reasonable taxi trip from the airport, though I should have researched the walk to the train station next day! Very helpful and friendly staff.

Excellent

I attended tha Team Scotland dinner at the hotel and stayed overnight! The food at the dinner was superb and of such high quality that made for a brilliant evening. The room was huge with 2 double beds and breakfast was excellent with lots of choice. I would definitely stay again
