          Breakfast was ok. Handy parking. Rooms were as expected for the rate.

          Bed was hard and room was a bit dull. I went to use the iron and found that it was black, sticky with gunk, you need to be checking this sort of thing I was lucky I didn't ruin an expensive shirt, I used one of your pillowslips to protect the shirt and it was ruined instead. If I'm honest I don't think I will be staying at the Thistle again, I think there is alot that could be done to spruce up rooms. I did look at other reveiws before we went to your hotel and someone else complained about the irons, and your reply to them was that it would be investigated, your housekeeping is failing you in this, it would be cheaper to replace offending irons than expensive clothing!

          The room was very comfortable, the restaurant food (Breakfast & Diner) were excellent. Great selection for breakfast and by pre-booking breakfast the day before it was reduced from £14.95 to £10, fantastic value. Car park very good value @ £5 per day, especially since its a city centre car park.

          Location brilliant Good service Fast lift Large, comfotable room Good leisure centre, but see right

          Breakfast rather expensive - better to provide cheap basic continental as an option Surprised (as a regular user of a gym in Galashiels) that I needed a doctor's certificate to use the fitness room

          The breakfast staff were probably the most efficient I've ever seen. They were very friendly and the service was great.

          The black pudding was poor and the sausages were undercooked.

          the service provided by your front of house staff (not the bar) on every occassion I had to call them or speak to them they were highly efficient, accommodating and courteous

          The size of the double beds. I booked the deluxe double and there is no way two adults could have slept comfortably in that room let alone my husband at 6 foot 4. The receptionist upgraded our room to kingsize without question

        • Couple
          7.8

          Good location and excellent breakfast. Ideally positioned for shopping and Glasgow nightlife.

          Nice big room but only a double bed when at least a king size would have been better

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          The location was ideal for shopping, and the underground car park was ideal as parking in Glasgow is very difficult. The bar is expensive, and the bed was a small double.

          My second stay at the Thistle. Superior room this time. Last time, the room I had was badly in need of a facelift. Shabby carpet and fittings, and smelled musty.

        • Older travelers
          8.4

          Good central location with access to motorway. Spacious room. Very comfortable bed.

          Rooms are looking a bit tired in places but that is only to be expected in hotel which is often fully booked.

          We liked that it was in a central location for our night out. Also the price that we got with Booked.net
