The best to be said is that it does exactly what it says on the bill. Clean room hot water and a rudimentary fruit free breakfast of a sort but the ethos reminded me a Sealink ferries thirty years ago and the decor likewise. Much better atmosphere and welcome to be had in the west end .

We are glad that overall you found our hotel clean and comfortable. The Ambassador underwent a complete refurbishment twelve months ago assisted by an award winning interior designer, we are delighted with the results and have received very favourable feedback from guests. We are of course sorry that on this occasion we did not meet your expectation.

This hotel was very accommodating. Very clean and lovely modern decor. My only complaint is that you have to book breakfast before you stay. You can't just go into the breakfast area and order. This policy was not mentioned to us when we arrived and I've traveled all over the world and this is the only hotel that operates this...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and your positive comments. I am sorry if you were inconvenienced with regards breakfast booking, if breakfast has not been booked in advance, we still do accept breakfast bookings up to 7pm the night before. As our breakfasts are freshly cooked to order this allows us to organise our staff...

My husband and I stay here when we visit our son at uni. It is a friendly hotel with clean rooms, good facilities in a quiet area. It should be noted that they cannot accommodate everyone for breakfast and you need to book it the night before. However, there are some very good little cafes nearby which do some delicious...

I felt really comfortable in my room for one. Staff was friendly, and the stay enjoyable.The bed was great, and the bathroom had been recently renewed. A plus: it's across the street from an entrance to the botanic gardens, which you access by crossing a picturesque bridge over the Kelvin River. 1 A brisk walk to the bus (about 8...

Great hotel. We had a great room overlooking the roof tops right at the top of the house. The bedroom was always clean, towels changed every day. The manager "Angela" was exceptionally nice, who went out her way to help you. She did a great job and works very hard to accommodate every one. In fact, my husband and I...

This great hotel is only around ten miles (20 minutes drive when not too busy) from Glasgow Airport and, although only a few minutes drive from the motorway, is actually within a very peaceful residential area right next to the Botanic Gardens. It is a short distance from the nearest underground station, and the 6 and 6a buses also take...

A cute, recently renovated boutique hotel next to the Botanical Gardens in the West End of Edinburgh. Walking distance to Edinburgh University and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Excellent full English breakfast served in a nice eating room; the breakfast will keep you going all day. Fresh, clear room with a nice queen-sized bed, decorative pillows in Scottish tweeds,...

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...
