Thistle Glasgow Reviews
Nice hotel, well located Mar 06, 2012
The Thistle Glasgow is very well located in the heart of the city just off Sauchiehall Street, the main shopping street in Glasgow. This does mean having to negotiate a series of one way streets when driving to the hotel and I was thankful for the help of my sat nav. Once there however there is a large car park in the basement of the hotel and although there are advertised rates for parking I wasn't charged.
The reception area is very welcoming and the staff were very friendly. The room was spacious and nicely decorated and up to 4 star standard.
The gym is rather compact with a couple each of the usual pieces of equipment and a separate weights room. I didn't use the pool or spa but they looked very nice.
I went out into Glasgow for the evening and the hotel's location was perfect for this with many bars and restaurants in the city being within easy walking distance.
Breakfast was very good and I chose to pay a little extra for Scottish smoked salmon and scrambled eggs which was excellent.
There was an issue on the morning of my departure in that the water heating system failed and there was no hot water in any of the rooms. This made for a somewhat 'refreshing' shower and shave that I would rather not have had to endure. I'm sure this was an isolated incident and it didn't detract from an enjoyable stay. Anyway, I wasn't charged for car parking and I considered this to be adequate compensation.
