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

First class hotel.

I stayed for one night as I was attending a function. From the moment I checked in until I checked out again, the staff were great. They were friendly and efficient. The function itself ran very smoothly. The food was delicious and the staff served us in a very unobtrusive manner. I loved the breakfast. Great choice and very fresh. The location of the hotel is ideal of city centre shopping. The room was spotless and the shower facilities were more than adequate. I was given a late check out the next day which suited me perfectly. I would recommend this to a friend and will certainly hope to stay again.

Great Stay...but

Great Stay, lovely hotel, although this time did see the room needing a bit of tarting up. Stains on bathroom ceiling and shower not in good working order. Food fabulous. All in all had a great stay.

Great location for shopping and seeing Glasgow

We arrived at the hotel at 9am and check in was not until 2pm . We had been travelling for 12 hours. The front desk got our room ready by10:30am, they went out of their way to make our 2 nights enjoyable. On return from Spain to Glasgow we booked back in for 2 more nights at theThistle. They are one of the very few hotels in downtown Glasgow that let 4 adults book in one room. The beds where Queens and very comfortable, they had extra pillows in the room and coffee,tea,hot chocolate, shortbread , bottled water. We booked the Executive Double Double room and the rates where much better than booking 2 rooms. We will stay at the Thistle again when we go back next year.

Fantastic weekend break

Frindly staff, very comfy bed, very spacious room. The location is amazing! 10min walkfrom central station and only a few minutes away from most clubs and shops. The Spa is not huge but is still quiet good, and they provide towels and a padlock, which is quite nice Definitely coming back! Great experience

Excellent Central location for City Break

Ideally placed for getting around Glagow. Close to shops, theatre, cinema, good local eateries and for bus services. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Buffet breakfast first rate and we only had a standard room but it had all we required. Would recommend for a city break. We stayed 5 nights and were very impressed. Although we didn't use it, also had a pool and fitness centre. Only down side pillows very hard and uncomfortable.
