    Good

    The location was fairly central and the car parking was good for a city centre hotel. The gym and spa were also better than average.

    The hotel is looking rather tired with worn carpets etc. Needs some tlc. There is an events suite which has bands/parties at the weekend. These can be very noisy, even in rooms on the higher floors.

    very pleasant and helpful,we booked it for a hen nyt and the staff were great with allowing people to come in and get ready although they were not stayin.

    we were supposed to have an extra bed in our twin room however was never put in the room but the hotel apologised and gave us another room for free

    Really comfortable, lovely room, staff were excellent, room was quiet, location couldn't really have been better.

    Breakfast was wayyyy too expensive at £13! (especially given that there's a £5 tray charge to have it in your room).

    My TV reception was really bad and I asked if they could have a look at it, instead of fixing it they gave me another room which was really nice and were very professional and courteous about the whole thing. I also eat at the restaurant and the food was great, it took a while for the food to come out because there was a problem in the kitchen but instead of just making me sit there the girl who was serving made the effort to come out and say that it was going to take a bit longer and apologised. I just wish that more restaurants would just put their hands up and let you know about these things because at the ened of the day, it really doesn't matter if you have to wait a while but it's nice to know instead of just being made to wait around so although I don't know the name of the girl who served me she was brilliant. All in all, had a great stay and although the fitness equipment was showing it's age a little the pool and steam / sauna rooms were excellent. Would have no problem recommending / staying there again.

    The gym equipment was a little knackered but still usable.

    The best thing about the hotel is its location as it is in the heart of the city centre.

    I've stayed for 4 nights and have no negative points to say.

    We have stayed in a Thistle hotel in London many times and having enjoyed our stays there , were not disappointed in the standard of the Glasgow Thistle. Our room was very spacious, modern and clean, as also the bathroom. We were able to park our car underneath the hotel and pay very little, which was enormously helpful. We ate one evening in the hotel , where the menu was varied and extremely well cooked. Also, the breakfasts were as good as ever. As the hotel was close to the city centre, we were able to sightsee very easily.

    The central location and how easy you can get there by car. Also low cost to park the car. Easy walk into the city. Downside is the early closure of the fitness and spa.

    Location

    Preposterous charging for internet use including a minimum 90 minute block. In 2011 all hotel internet should be free- even the smallest B&B has free wi-fi while large hotel groups profiteer. Breakfast is also over priced.I would only recommend this hotel if the internet policy is revised and a free service provided.
