    Lovely Hotel with Complimentary Spa Facilities”

    Beautiful hotel that was centrally located. Complimentary spa facilities like steam room and all but you will need to bring your own swimwear (no t shirts allowed). Has quite a number of street parking around the hotel (2hour max stay with 30minute refresh rates i.e you will need to park at another street for more than 30minutes before coming back).

    The view from our room was a builders cabin in the street which was open with a desk in it. This was our immediate view which was disappointing to say the least. Then we went to the spa and the steamroom was broken & the laconium seats extra hot so I couldn’t sit down. I normally love the laconium. The staff at the hotel were great. Lovely.

    Not up to standard - room smelt of urine”

    We complained about the smell in our bathroom, it was a very strong smell of urine. They opened our window to try and resolve the smell. We complained again and the cleaner said it always smells like this in this room!! Was not impressed. We paid for the buffet breakfast to then be told we would have to wait a long time for hot food as they were busy, pancakes was solid! Very poor. Customer service in the bar was slow, our empty plates remained on our table 35 mins after finishing. 4 members of staff standing at bar chatting.

    I've stayed at the Blythswood a few times , but not for around two or three years. It felt like this time it had been cranked up a notch in terms of very friendly and attentive customer service, it really added to the experience. They also have water in the rooms now which, rather unusually, was missing when I last stayed, so that is another positive addition.

    Room very comfortable although small. Room-005- hard to find- signage was misleading. It might be a good idea to place a curtain over the window looking out on to the alleyway- not one of Glasgow's finest views! Although many people are not at their best first thibng in the morning I felt the staff at breakfast could have made a bit more an effort to be friendly

    Everything was perfect”

    I've stayed at the Blythswood a few times , but not for around two or three years. It felt like this time it had been cranked up a notch in terms of very friendly and attentive customer service, it really added to the experience. They also have water in the rooms now which, rather unusually, was missing when I last stayed, so that is another positive addition.

    Very good”

    Room very comfortable although small. Room-005- hard to find- signage was misleading. It might be a good idea to place a curtain over the window looking out on to the alleyway- not one of Glasgow's finest views! Although many people are not at their best first thibng in the morning I felt the staff at breakfast could have made a bit more an effort to be friendly
