I've been in Glasgow for a meeting. I chose this hotel because of the position. I can suggest it to those who do not to spend their time into the room. In fact my room was small, but it was clean, with wifi really working. In addition you can have a good Scottish breakfast, the staff is friendly.

Superb hotel near the Botanical gardens, very central to the university and not that far from the central area of Glasgow. Well worth every penny for it was clean and comfortable and great value for money. It has a small parking area which is included and so convenient. Ample breakfast, and very close to Byres road where you can find plenty of restaurants and local shops. Would highly recommend and would most definitely be going back there!!!!

Very welcoming, clean and a perfect location with free parking across the road at the weekends. Really close to all West End amenities. We had a great sleep, comfy bed and will definitely be back when we come back to Glasgow.

The West End location was excellent- very near to restaurants and nightlife but on a quiet street across the Botanic Gardens. The bedrooms were clean and spacious and the bed was very comfortable. A tea tray and biscuits was a nice extra!

This is a small hotel offering all the basics for your stay. The location is right next to the Botanical Gardens. Breakfast is made for you by lovely, caring personnel. Rooms are tidy and recently refurbished. Very quiet, pleasant place to stay.

Very good hotel if you want to be close enough to the centre of Glasgow but still be able to park your vehicle at night... in my case a van, room was very clean and warm... shower was very good as was the WiFi, staff were extremely helpful too even making me a packed lunch for work because I was out too early for breakfast... will defiantly be staying here again if I’m ever in Glasgow

Our trip to Glasgow was perfect because of our stay at The Ambassador. Good value for money, fantastic staff and great location. The room and whole hotel was nicely decorated and spotless. The bed was spotless and very comfortable. It was freezing outside but you would never know as the hitel was lovely and warm. If we visit Glasgow again, which I'm sure we will, we will definitely be staying here again

Great location, clean rooms and excellent service from staff. The hotel is very close to the shops, Byres Road and Great Western Road. Plenty of places nearby for food, drinks and sightseeing. Would highly recommend.

Stayed at hotel and apartments several times and would recommend. Great location and free parking. On this instance we stayed in apartments. Only rated sleep quality as 3 as we were on ground floor and had guests talking constantly outside, nothing to do with bed. Would recommend getting room on higher floor. Would certainly return. Very good value for money.

Lovely warm cosy room, free parking, walking distance from all points of interest, clean and very friendly. No bath in my room but this is the only negative regarding the room. Great decor and lovely surroundings.
