Glasgow is a major hub for commerce, tourism and culture in the United Kingdom. It's also known for its beautiful parks, quirky shops and restaurants, and distinctive architecture - a mix of both Victorian and modern styles. Greater Glasgow is a sprawling area (approximately 80 square miles); however the central area is quite compact, making it easy for guests of our downtown Glasgow hotels to get around. You can easily walk to both the City Center, the commercial heart of Glasgow, and popular West End District.
Within the City Center, you'll find both historic Merchant City and the Blythswood Hill financial district. Be sure to check out the Gallery of Modern Art in Royal Exchange Square, and the Glasgow Cathedral, an excellent example of the city's Gothic architecture. The Clyde Auditorium, or the "Armadillo" to native Glaswegians, is adjacent to the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Center and offers a variety of concert options, while the Theatre Royal is home to famous Broadway musicals and West End productions.
Looking to experience the city's more bohemian side during your Glasgow hotel stay? Then the West End is a definite stop on your itinerary. Here you'll find an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and cafes, as well as lively pubs and bars surround the University of Glasgow campus. The Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum is one of the most celebrated attractions in the UK, boasting many fine paintings and sculptures, including works from Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Monet and Whistler, medieval relics and more.
The Botanical Gardens are a pleasant way to spend the day, and with regular subways connecting the West End to Ibrox Stadium, home to the Glasgow Rangers soccer team, you can also experience Scotland's favorite past time during your visit.
Of course, this is only a small sampling of what this great city has to offer. You may have to plan an extra trip to take in all the sites, sounds and flavors of Scotland's 2nd city - and our Glasgow hotels are always ready to welcome you.
Kirsty the receptionist deserves a pay rise, what a great ambassador for the hotel, so friendly and helpful, could not do enough to make my stay comfortable!
Shame about the refurbishment work as[More] current restaurant/bar facilities not that brilliant, staff very slow (quite often invisible) and food/drink offerings not good value!
Phone in my room broken so no chance to get room service, and shower a problem to operate.[Less]
Most Convenient Airport Hotel Ever
I've visited this hotel around 4 or 5 times in the past 8 years since I've started visiting Glasgow, and the staff has always been excellent and understanding if I arrive on an early flight and am[More] 100% jet lagged. Visited the restaurant for the 1st time on this visit and the food was outstanding, and although the rooms have started to show signs of wear, the fact you're literally a 3 minute walk away from the check-in desks/ security area of the airport more than makes up for it. Will definitely stay again![Less]

Decent place to stay whilst visiting the area
The hotel is very convenient when visiting the area and matched my expectations of this style of hotel. the only downside to the visit was the use of pre packaged and processed fish when the port is[More] very close, an expectation of fresh fish was dashed.[Less]
The service at this properly was amazing! The staff was awesome! I highly recommend this property.[Less]
geeat service overall
enjoyed our short stay at Stratclyde, staff friendly, helpful, hotel clean, good night's sleep. good breakfast.
Only problem was transport, too far away from any public transport, if you do not use a[More] car.
A shuttle service to the town centre would help.[Less]
When asking at the reception why he was on his own - he replied that that was the staffing arrangement. Noone else was, apparently, available.[Less]
