Selected the Ambassador based on reviews, location and price. All very clean and suitable for short visit to Glasgow. The gentlemen on reception when we arrived was pleasant and helpful. Sorry didn't get his name. He was also behind the desk in the morning, supporting the breakfast as well. All very nice. Good location, easy walk to Subway (Clockwork Orange)...

The hotel is clean and all facilities are provided. Coffee, tea etc. Rooms cleaned daily with helpful staff. Very reasonably priced and adjacent to Kelvin Gardens. The rooms have been recently renovated, the shower room/toilet was good. However the twin room we were allocated, No 4, was narrow and had a "damp" smell. (Actually we thought the smell was of...

Currently working away from home in Glasgow and stay here every week. I spent many hours searching the internet for somewhere I would be happy with, and eventually decided on the Ambassador...happy to say I got it right first time! Modern and spotlessly clean rooms, safe off-street parking, and great location a short walk from Byres Road. Staff are very...

We had a triple room on the ground floor. The room was lovely, very high ceilings and lots of period features. There was a kettle with tea and posh biscuits. I thought it might be noisy at night, being on the ground floor at the front, but there was no noise at all. The staff were nice and helpful. The...

Angela gave me a warm welcome when I arrived late in the evening. She assured me that I would sleep well in room 6 which is situated on the first floor at the back of the hotel and I can honestly say that I slept like a log for the two nights I stayed in the hotel. Angela was on...

Stayed here with a friend for three days in March. We opted not to have breakfast as we were visiting friends in the city, so cannot comment on the food. The room was quaint - ours was on the second floor. The bathroom seemed to be recently refurbished and was very clean and completely adequate. My friend slept well but...

Many thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay with, in regard to your comment re the mattresses, these we all replaced this time last year when the hotel was totally re-furbished. You are quite correct we don't have a lift nor do we advertise one, however should anyone need assistance with their luggage then we are here...

Stayed here for 5 nights whilst working in the area. Very friendly staff who make you feel very welcomed. My room (15) was lovely, clean and tidy. Breakfast was great. Would love to stay again if I'm back in this area. Well situated for Glasgow centre and surrounding areas.

If booked direct with hotel a nice discount awaits for stays of more than a few days. Quality furnishings and fittings with some likeable artwork around the place. The hand basin in a single room was tiny, easy to knock head on mirror while teeth brushing! Comfy bed but sounds could be heard from adjoining room. Helpful staff. Nice location.
