Weekend trip

Stayed here for 2 nights and extremely happy with this hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were in a standard King room and more than happy with the huge bed, large tv, 2 armchairs and table, iron and board in wardrobe and also a safe. Can't think what else you would need to justify a superior room! Location was excellent very close to buses trains and shopping. Breakfast was included in room rate and was also very good with great choice. Would definitely stay here 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 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.
