Travelled to Glasgow on 1 June 2018 for one night stay. Had previously stayed in a suite at this hotel and was blown away by it and the hotel. This time booked the room via a online hotel site. Room was £230 for the night but having stayed there before thought would be treat to stay again. Reception staff nice and shown to our room which was on the top floor. Large attic style room which was clearly in need of a u freshen up. Don’t get me wrong was nice but having seen other rooms know this is not the standard throughout. It was like a Victorian period room with brown painted wood and dark wallpaper . Bathroom had large bath with marble surround which even at 6ft 3 I found hard to step in and out of. Room comes with fridge full of spirits, wine and beer etc. There is also a selection of sweets and crisps all at extra cost. Large double bed was two singles pushed together and you had to be careful not to slip down middle. I sound like I did not like the room but it was nice and just felt we were in a room which was perhaps on the list of rooms needing still to be decorated. Hotel as a whole is a lovely classy hotel. Plenty of selection for breakfast and having eaten here before the food is of a high standard. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a bit of luxury in Glasgow. I guess we are just little bit disappointed as if like us you get one night away a year from kids and decide to treat self then yes we were disappointed with room but not hotel. The room we stayed in previously was stunning . Glasgow is a friendly city and taxi drivers are great . Worth a visit and worth staying at this hotel.
No hesitation in recommending this boutique hotel. Great location. Quirky but lovely. Spacious room. Snug pub with good food. Super friendly staff. Lots of nice touches. The Bistro has fussy food if that’s your thing. No problem parking the car right outside.
We had booked a room for a Saturday night stay, we were offered an upgrade for a small fee, which we declined. When we arrived, we were given a complimentary upgrade to a suite on the ground floor. This opened out onto a garden which customers used to smoke. This meant there was noise outside our room at various different times. We were woken up on the Sunday morning - 8am - by staff clearing the snow in the same area. This was meant to be a relaxing birthday treat! Food was great as always, just a shame about the noisy stay!
Nice hotel with friendly staff without being over intrusive the rooms are nice and spacious and breakfast was very filling,bit confusing with room names however my understanding is they are names of wine...can't fault it
Wonderful stay. Big rooms, clean and very kind and friendly staff. Walking distance to several good restaurants and sites. Nice bistro for drinks and relaxation. Front door staff could not be nicer. A perfect place to stay.
We were only in Glasgow for 1 night but Hotel du Vin was just a perfect place to stay. We arrived around 8:30 in the morning figuring we would not be able to check in, we were wrong. The staff did their best to get us the 2 rooms we needed and they did! From the young man that greeted us at the door ( and carried our bags to our rooms) to the reservation gal and everyone else that works there we were treated as old friends! Our room was beautiful, large and quite comfortable. The neighborhood was beautiful not right down town but in a lovely area. Great start to a vacation.
At first glance, fairly upmarket and luxurious but, on closer inspection, rather run down and grubby. We had to change rooms twice because of soiled chairs and dirty, worn out mattresses. The chef had three failed attempts at preparing a soft-boiled egg and, when I was offered a choice of bread as toast, I didn't realise that choice was limited to square cut, supermarket brown or white!
This was a return trip to Glasgow and Hotel du Vin, I had been here a 18 months ago and couldn't wait to come back. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Glasgow. The hotel is off the Great Western Road very close to the Botanical Gardens in the fashionable West End. The hotel is comprised of 5 Victorian homes that have been renovated and connected by interior hallways. It is classic and absolutely gorgeous. Quintessential Scottish! Each guest room is unique in its decor and is very well appointed. Super comfortable beds, furniture, rich linens, a visual treat for the eyes. I loved it! The bistro has a diverse menu - I had the sea bass special which was delicious. Breakfast is amazing - fruits, breads, tea, eggs, porridge with almond milk - YUMMMM that was just for me and I don't usually eat breakfast, it was way too tempting to pass up. Been here twice now and will absolutely come back again. One of my favorite places.
While the hotel is in a lovely neighborhood, near the botanical gardens and a reasonable walk to the museums it’s quirkiness got old fast. Our room was nicely decorated but was so stiflingly HOT that it was almost unbearable. Glasgow was 73 degrees and our room was on the 3rd floor (no elevator) heat rises. I understand Glasgow is often cool but 73is not exactly hot and the hotel does NOT have air conditioning. The windows just open a bit, our room was facing west into the afternoon sun and the hot water pipes were under our floors so essentially there were heated floors. We borrowed a cheap little fan which we had blowing right on us which allowed us not to melt! In addition the mattress was thin and not at all comfortable. Now, each room is different and certainly ones on a lower floor, facing east or north would not have been as hot and the bathroom was lovely and the price very reasonable. So perhaps with another room we might have felt differently. The staff were quite pleasant.
Had the pleasure over the bank holiday to try the tasting menu at Hotel Du Vin Glasgow.What can one say but wonderful,your tastebuds are exxposed to tantalising flavours as each mouthfull you take bursts with with flavour.The wine suggested with each course complemented the dish.Only a matter of time before Chef and his staff celebrate a much deserved Michelin star
