Some things to improve upon
Marks Hotel is a newly renovated property, due for completion late August. When I stayed the week before completion, the restaurant was closed, and the breakfast limited to a juice, danish, sugary muesli bar & apple delivered to your door in the morning. Although the rates were "reduced" to reflect this (they were still not cheap), I think they will have to work a bit harder once finished if they lift the rates. For instance while the bed was comfortable, and the duvet feather, they were unable to supply a feather pillow. The throw rug was Designers' Guild and the wall paper and cushions bold and attractive so money has been spent on the interior. However toiletries are restricted to a supermarket brand in a dispenser by the shower & sink, there are no good quality individual bottles. There is no mini-bar or fridge in the room, though a kettle, hairdryer & iron are supplied.
The day & early evening staff were extremely helpful & friendly. However I wasn't sure the night staff were as good. On my last night we had an evacuation due to a guest breaking 3 of the fire alarms after midnight. The alarms went intermittently until after 1am while being fixed which was annoying as I wouldn't have returned to my room (up 8 flights) had I known the alarm would continue on. The night staff may not have had adequate training in these situations. I was a bit concerned that the night staff didn't come knocking on doors of the rooms (I was a bit slow in getting up) as even in a false alarm I would like to think the hotel staff were looking out for my safety. I also thought that a wee note acknowledging the disruption in the breakfast bag would have been a nice gesture.
Not bad but could be better
Stayed here for one night in June, clean hotel, Beds are very very comfy. Rooms in hotel look like they have been designed by laurence Lowellyn Bowen - a little much for some people. Must agree with coments about room service for a city hotel I'm amased their is no room service for when you get back from a night on the town. Restaurant was also closed for refurbisment which I wasn't advised when booking. I travel on business and dont want to go walking the street for dinner. Overall a resonable hotel, stayed in better, stayed in worse. Nothing exciting really.
Ich habe ein Wochenende mit Einkaufen und Ausgehen in Glasgow verbracht.
Wir hatten ein Doppel- und ein Einzelbett, sowie ein ausziehbares Sofa auf unserem Zimmer und da wir nur zu dritt waren, gab es noch genügend Platz. Das Zimmer würde sich sehr für eine kleine Familie eignen und hat nur 120 Euro pro Nacht gekostet.
Das Hotel hat eine tolle Lage, nur 10 Minuten vom Hauptbahnhof gelegen, man konnte zu Fuß zu den Geschäften laufen und ca. 5 Minuten entfernt gab es ein richtig schönes Kino.
Die Angestellten waren sehr nett zu uns.
Les chambres neuves sont très agréables
J'ai séjourné dans cet hôtel les 18 et 19 mai. J'étais déjà venu quand c'était encore l'hôtel Bewleys. Les chambres rénovées valent vraiment la visite : très modernes, spacieuses et idéalement situées.
Le personnel est très agréable et aimable, d'autant que certaines parties de l'hôtel sont en pleines rénovations similaires.
J'ai hâte de revenir quand l'hôtel sera terminé, il vaut vraiment la visite.
Stayed here for a weekend shopping and going out in Glasgow.
We had double, single and sofa bed in our room, and with 3 of us there was still plenty of room. This room would be really good for someone with a small family and it was only £89 per night.
The hotel is in a great location, only 10 mins from the train station, walking distance from the shops, and 5 mins from a nice cinema.
The staff were also really nice to us.
New Bedrooms are great
Stayed in this Hotel 18th and 19th May. Previously stayed here when it was Bewleys Hotel. The newly refurbished bedrooms are definately worth a vist. Very Modern, spacious and in an ideal location. Staff are great and very pleasant even particularly whilst other areas of the Hotel are being upgraded to a similar style. Can,t wait to return when the Hotel is finished, will definately be worth a visit
Garish hotel with bed bugs
My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel as we had a night out in Glasgow. The front of the hotel looks amazing but inside is horrible. The wallpaper in the hall ways has bedroom was very over powering. We were in room 302 and the heat was unbeleivable even with the windows open. Our room had a double and a single in it and very cramped. The bathroom was however very clean and modern.
There is room service at the hotel but it ends at 9.30 so no midnight snacks available!!
When we got back to the hotel after our night out we asked the porter for a bottle of mineral water but he said we would need to go to the 24 hour shop for it!
When we returned home both our legs were covered in itchy bites.
Also to make things worse my credit card has been charged 3 times for the cost of the room.
I have called the hotel regarding the problems but I have been told someone will call me back.
I was really disappointed with the hotel. It cost £89 without breakfast but to be honest I would reccomend the travel inn has the bed's a much comfier and the overall service and conditions are much better and also cheaper!!
Mi novio y yo hace poco tiempo que pasamos una noche en el hotel Bewley de Glasgow. Cuando llegamos el personal se mostró muy agradable y servicial. No fuimos ni al bar ni al restaurante pero las partes del hotel que sí vimos tenían un aspecto limpio y ordenado. Nuestra habitación era muy bonita y era bastante espaciosa. La única desventaja que se me ocurre eran las vistas puesto que en nuestro caso la habitación daba a un callejón trasero, pero no nos importó. En general, disfruté de mi estancia de una noche en el Bewleys y se lo recomendaría a otras personas que vayan a viajar a Glasgow. Está junto a la principal zona comercial y además su precio es uno de los más baratos que encontramos.
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Bewley's hotel in Glasgow on an over-night. On arrival the staff were very pleasant and helpful. We didn't go into the bar or restaurant but the parts of the hotel we did see, seemed clean and tidy. Our room was very nice and it was quite spacious. The only disadvantage I can think of was the view, we looked onto a back alley, however that didn't bother us. Overall I enjoyed my over-night at Bewleys and I would recommend it to other people who are travelling to Glasgow. It's just off the main shopping area and was actually one of the cheapest hotels we priced!!
Top marks for Bewleys
Just returned from a stay at Bewleys, Glasgow for a friends 30th birthday. We were 7 girls all looking for a night out on the town. My friend booked direct with the hotel and asked for a high floor. This we got as soon as we checked in. We needed extra pillows and rang reception , in less than 5 minutes we had extra pillows. We then realised that we only had 2 sets of towels and there were 3 of us in the room. We rang reception and again within 5 minutes the towels had arrived.
The room was immaculately clean with a double and proper single bed rather than a camp bed. The floor to ceiling windows had a lovely view over the city of Glasgow even though it was rather miserable weather. The heating could be set hot or cold as you wanted it which was nice as we like it cold whilst asleep. The shower was a real power shower and nearly knocked you into next week with the force of the water. Fab. The bathroom was very clean and loads of space around the sink for toiletries and make up.
We didn't have much contact with the staff although i felt sorry for them working in the draughty reception.The inner door was key entry only which was a good idea but kept them in the outer area next to the outer doors.
The hotel is quite central for good pubs and restaurants. There was a great cocktail bar not far away next to Lloyds bar. Both were great. The Savoy club could have been great but the music was terrible, no Abba or Kylie to be had.
After a really good nights sleep on lovely firm mattress we went to Lloyd bar for 11am and had a full breakfast with a mug of tea for £2.60. Fab value. We paid £20 for the train from Newcastle and £23 for the room each as there was 3 of us. Why stay at home when you can get out and about around the country for next to nothing if you look hard enough.
Would definitley stay again although i think the hotel is changing its name and is no longer going to be a Bewleys

It turned out to be a really good choice as the food was fantastic. Easily the best meal we've had in Scotland yet. I had a pork belly that was not only tender and tasty - but they had used salt! (its rare to find restaurants that use salt in cooking ...

My favourite castle was The Tantallon Castle, it was about 30km along the coast from Edinburgh. This Castle had the most spectacular views of the ocean and country side. We then drove down through The Lake District on our way to Liverpool for the night before setting off on our trip to ...
2 weeks of unemployed, pre-travel blissful mayhem!
Of course our flat looked like it had been ransacked by a team of professional robbers. The entire contents of our drawers, cupboards and wardrobes had been emptied and dumped in the middle of the floor in an attempt to find our *ahem*, "worthwhile" belongings to ship to our new home in New Zealand. And naturally we couldn't bear to part with all those dust attracting knick knacks ...
