We chose the hotel for my daughters 21st Party and throughout the team were so helpful and on the night they could not do enough for you..and with a smile on their face! The venue was ideal and the food excellent. A few friends stayed also and said the rooms were also great. Thanks and well done to the team.

Visited on Saturday the 27th of January with an over night stay we also booked dinner, on arrival we had to park in an housing estate along the road as there parking lot was full with there being a wedding on, on check-in staff were friendly, room was clean however the shower needs looked at due to hose connection and cannot be used fully, evening meal was disappointing , one starter was served cold and one main came with uncooked vegetables couldn't be cut or put a fork in them , on the plus side the drinks were decent (no cranberry juice available) but took way to long to be served again staff were friendly but looked short and under pressure, next morning at breakfast was a shambles, it was buffet style, but there was not much good to say about that , had to ask about plates/cups/cutlery we ended up taking it from another table as there staff were up againt it, we had to wait for stuff to be cooked as there was one person cooking all the food ( no point in buffet style to help cope) and 2 others trying to do top up on tea/coffee/juice etc serve toast which we asked for and never received, staff very much under pressure and this was disappointing to see, on check-out it was brought up by the staff member that we used a black Friday voucher which we did(but why was that even mentioned) with our over night dinner and drinks for the 2 of us it was £300 so not really a small amount so we were annoyed at check-out , maybe you get a better experience when they don't have a wedding/function,

We stayed in the honeymoon suite,it was an amazing experience. The bath tub was great with the lovely cuddle sofa and fire place was very cosy. Only thing is, the music from the function room is really loud and we couldn't sleep untill it was over (after 1am)

Ideal location for meeting someone from outwith Glasgow. Good parking. Lovely, friendly professional service, great menu with plenty of choice, delicious food, generous portions, well presented. No pressure to hurry away. First visit and looking forward to more. Booking was straightforward and friendly staff handled my calls throughout. Two course lunch was good value for money.

This is a restaurant review only. My main dish of beef casserole was cold, had dried out and took ages to arrive. The restaurant itself was very cold and left diners uncomfortable. A very poor effort.

We got married at the Busby at the start of November and have nothing but good things to say about the staff and the venue. From the planning by Megan once we'd chosen the venue to the fantastic service by the staff on the day, we were looked after and all of our wishes catered for. We wanted a really relaxed and laid-back wedding and this was the perfect venue for us, the staff were amazing with the timings of the day and ensured we were where we needed to be, allowing us the right amount of time with family and friends to enjoy our special day. The rooms were great, we were lucky enough to have the honeymoon suite for 2 nights, and staff kept us informed when the cake and flowers had arrived to ensure a stress free day. The florist, cake maker, and photographer recommended by the Busby were all faultless. Couldn't have asked for a better day. 10/10. Thank you so much :-)

We attended a party night (which was excellent) and stayed overnight. That was a wise move. Having had a delicious meal and danced the night away (in the restaurant where there was a smaller crowd and more room) we retired to a very comfortable room and awoke to a delicious breakfast. From the welcome at check in until we left there were plenty of staff available and all were friendly and welcoming. Can't wait to do it all again next year! Thank you, Busby. You were amazing.

We had our wedding at the Busby Hotel in December 2023 and we cannot recommend this venue enough. From the very first meeting with the Wedding specialist Megan to a check in email a week after the event, it has been an absolute pleasure. I stayed in the adjoining rooms the night prior to the event with my bridesmaids and the facilities were great in both rooms. One room used for makeup and the other used for hair the following morning! Then the staff came up to help us move into the suite when it was ready so that we were not stressed - unbelievable support! The Buchanan Suite - honeymoon suite itself with its new decor and upgrade with the day bed and jacuzzi bath was unbelievably amazing. The wedding rooms, balcony and garden area is newly refurbished and is gorgeous throughout. The food for the wedding was delicious as is the food in Carters restaurant. The wedding DJ Jamie was amazing and catered for our taste completely, and kept all of our guests thoroughly entertained. The best part of the Busby hotel above the amazing decoration, facilities, and food is by far the staff. We cannot praise them enough for their support, guidance, and genuine character. Every single member of the team went above and beyond throughout our entire stay (Especially Jack who is a true gent, and Rebecca who was there to help a bride in need with her lashes!)

I meet with an ex colleague around Christmas each year to have a lunch, to talk of many things and to generally put the world to rights. This year we returned to the Busby Hotel in Field Road, Busby because it was really good last year. I stay locally and have been in the hotel on many occasions. This year it wasn’t so good, there was a limited choice on the menu and the butternut soup was warm as opposed to hot. As it was Christmas we both chose the Ballotine of Turkey as our main course, but instead of slices of succulent meat we were presented with what looked like crushed turkey meat rolled up into a tubular shape and then thickly sliced. Before ordering I asked what a Ballotine of Turkey was, but I didn’t get a knowledgeable answer! The vegetables were excellently cooked and partially made up for the disappointing turkey. All the staff were friendly and attentive and that raised my score for the meal from three to four stars. The dining room was well decorated although slightly on the cold side. There was a delay before the sweet was served because the guests’ chosen courses are fed into a computer in the dining room and the receiving machine in the kitchen had run out of paper! When it arrived the sticky toffee pudding, served with ice cream, was ok, but it didn’t give me the impression that it had been baked that day, but most likely had been supplied in bulk by a dedicated caterer. When we paid the bill I asked about the turkey and apparently the choice of dishes is made by ‘head office’ and ‘supplied to the whole chain’. We each had a starter of soup, a main course and a sweet, a pint of fresh orange and lemonade and a coffee accompanied by the smallest piece of tablet that I have seen for a while. The bill for the two lunches was £76, which was not good value for a very average meal, before adding a well deserved tip for the very pleasant staff. Overall the hotel was clean and well decorated but the main course and the price spoilt the meal. The lesson learned is to get a full answer to any questions before finalising your order.
