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,...

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...

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...
