Ambassador Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

Genuinely friendly welcome from the receptionist who remembered me from a previous stay a few months ago. My room was warm, clean and comfortable. Got up too late for breakfast in the hotel, but the receptionist was happy to recommend an excellent cafe round the corner. The location is very good, a few steps from the Botanic gardens and the walkway along the river Kelvin, with the shops, bars and restaurants of Glasgow's West End within easy walking distance.

Great little hotel/apartments. Lovely staff, comfy beds, spacious rooms. Shops and takeaways a few minutes away and was only £4 to go into the centre of town in a taxi. Also got a dominoes delivered to the room, cant even get a delivery where we live at home

good hotel in ideal location found staff friendly rooms clean bed comfortable breakfast a little overpriced for what I eat so did not bother but would definitely highly recommend and will be returning again

This is an excellent hotel. The stay was very nice, the hotel staff is very good and caring. The rooms were very good and clean. The bed was high quality and gave a good night of sleep. Overall very good.

Beautiful rooms and views over the kelvin river and botanic gardens. There’s lots to do around the area and is in walking distance of the city. The ensuite bedrooms are lovely and very well looked after, the beds are really comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice of continental and hot food, the poached eggs were cooked to perfection by Angela who was very friendly and helpful during our stay. We could only stay one night but will definitely come back.
