Could not fault this restaurant, excellent food and service.10/10 Really nice ambience, warm and service very good. Food of a very high standard,and I like the fact you can get a reasonably priced bottle of wine at lunch time.
Oh my. Where do I start. We have had a very hectic, sometimes very stressful year and wanted to treat all of our staff with partners to something a little special to say thank you for their hard work. Booked online back in the early Autumn but struggled to complete effectively and ended up speaking to Hotel du Vin main booking site directly . Something, somewhere lost in translation but after a couple of phone calls the 1 Devonshire gardens assistant front desk manager Sharon Smith called us back, took full ownership and sorted out the problems. Just wanted to write a review as cannot underestimate our appreciation of Sharon and all the staff who looked after us today and yesterday. Everything they do is just done beautifully without ostentation and we were made to feel so welcome. Our group of ten ranged in age from twenty one to plus fifty but we all felt similarly spoiled. Thank you. Not sure we could ever better this. The standard is set.
We took advantage of the Sunday deal where you can stay at a heavily discounted rate on condition seventy five pounds are spent in the bar or restaurant, which if you intend to eat out regardless is not a bad deal when the cost of a taxi is factored in. Our room was a paid upgrade to the Chateau Baudoc townhouse which is an apartment on the mews level at the rear, with French doors opening onto the terrace where there is a heated Bothy aimed at those wishing to smoke a cigar outdoors or enjoy a drink. It's a trade off in privacy and potential for noise, when we were staying we didn't see anyone else use this area so essentially it was our own private little outdoor area. I liked it. The room is well appointed with no less than three televisions, a classic bathroom in a style similar to the age of the hotel whilst being modern and monsoon shower. There's a comfy bed, Bose alarm radio, Nespresso coffee machine and mini-bar which all lend themselves to a comfortable stay and whilst there's no aircon a portable cooler in the bedroom which could be used on either of the two days of Glasgow's summer. Our food and drinks bill came to just under two hundred but we did splurge, because it was my birthday and as a man I really appreciated the complimentary tablet and lovely note wishing my wife a happy birthday. Well done... The staff were very friendly and highly efficient.
My partner took me here for my birthday for the wine and chateubriand deal. When we arrived they didn't have our booking which was a bit awkward. Nonetheless we were seated and the waiter brought the whole menus despite the fact we were here for a set menu. Awkwardly again we had to point this out. We were then served a lovely meal. However once again when we asked for the bill we were charged full price and not according to the set menu we had booked. Rather awkwardly once again we had to point this out. Finally we decided to retire to the bar for a drink while awaiting our taxi home. After having 2 vodkas I went to pay the bill and was charged £170.00 which was the full price food bill and the bar bill. Yet again, I rather awkwardly had to point out the error. For such a lovely and well reputed resturant the organisation was sloppy to say the least. The food and table service otherwise was impeccable.
We have stayed before and this time were treating my elderly mum.As always the staff were friendly and attentive had taken into account Mums need for a ground floor room and upgraded us both.Both rooms were gorgeous and luxurious so much so I stayed in to enjoy my room and left my husband to go out at night.Afternoon tea was delicious and breakfast equally so and promptly served.Will definitely stay again.Loved the fact dogs are welcome too!
We stayed here recently for a couple of nights for our 30th Anniversary.The room was absolutely gorgeous,I felt thoroughly spoilt.The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for you and the food was lovely,we will definitely be back,can't recommend this enough,best hotel we've ever been too
Hotel was absolutely lovely. Very comfortable night away & breakfast delicious. Feel a little better having read a previous review that pointed out if you don’t have money or are part of a big party your not made to feel welcome. Have to say this was made very clear to us! Sad in this day & age if you ask me.
Adore the attention to detail. Food and cocktails were to die for. Staff lovely professional and friendly. Spotless. Definitely going back. X You can have a glass of very fine wine as they can reseal the bottle... paid 17 quid for a glass... taste explosion! Highly recommend.
Five lovely huge old houses joined together into most fabulous boutique hotel with the highest of standards. One night only and we will definitely be back. What a massive bay window in our room. The curtains must have weighed a ton. I think one of best hotels we have ever stayed and a very good price in lovely location nearby Byers Rd and Hyndland Rd. Fantastic
Stayed here a few times over the years and I like how consistent it is, rooms are darker and cosy rather than modern and bright but somehow that seems to work better here anyway, Front of house staff are always lovely and the rooms feel well looked after and are very comfortable indeed. Food again is of a high standard but if you only have breakfast here it’s still a lovely experience, very good selection of healthier options for once which I much appreciate. Will be back!
