Reviewed 3 March 2012

This hotel turned out to be a very good choice for a two day visit to Glasgow. The room was not large, but not oppressively small either, and it was clean, quiet and comfortable. The car parking round the back was a little hard to find, but, once found, was very convenient.

The breakfast was excellent - or would have been if the machine-delivered coffee had been up to standard. (In so many B&B establishments, the only safe option is to drink tea with your breakfast - and this is one of them!)

Compared with other Glasgow hotels, this is excellent value for money. Recommended.

Small hotel, excellent location for university, restaurants, cool bars etc. rooms are OK - small, a bit shabby but clean (though the need to sort out the ceiling cobwebs). Good breakfast and charming service.

Recently stayed at the Ambassador Hotel with some friends while attending a sporting event.

Four of us shared one very spacious room which was very clean and comfortable and kitted out with tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge. Breakfast was nice and all the staff were more than helpful especially with accomodating an extra guest at very short notice. We felt that it was very good value for money.

One of the great bonuses with the hotel is that there is plentiful free off street parking. Hillhead Subway is only about 5-10 mins walk for heading into the city and there are also buses and plenty of shops, cafes, pubs etc nearby that you can reach on foot. Taxi's into the city centre are not too expensive and there is a taxi rank just two minutes away. Nearby attractions are the Botanic gardens and Kelvingrove Museum.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front of the building overlooking the river which was nice

small twin bedroom on top floor
clean and comfortable beds
Unfortunately, the window wouldn't close properly - didn't realise this until we got back to the room late. It was very windy so the window rattled all night!!!
Breakfast was good but the dining room could perhaps do with some low level background music.
It gave my friend and beds for the night but I would only use this place again as a last resort.

Room Tip: small room on top floor with sloping ceiling - the rooms on the first floor may have been better. It...

If you want a reasonably priced hotel not too far from the centre of Glasgow this is a good choice. I'd failed to get a room in the centre so booked this hotel for 1 night. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was small but comfortable with a king size bed. Everything was clean, the shower worked well. the breakfast was freshly cooked and very good quality. If you are a Rennie Mackintosh fan it's very close to the Queens Cross Church. It's also close to the excellent Black Sheep Bistro. You can park on the street outside the hotel.

Room Tip: The street it's on is split with a no through but the hotel is near where it divides so park on...
