Good Central Hotel
Part of the Best Western chain, which sometimes offers value over comfort and facilities, Milton's has got it the right way 'round. In a central location down near the River Clyde, the hotel still looked in good condition when I stayed there. Lobby is nice and bright, and my room had a king size bed with little to complain about. Satellite TV, movies and internet connection were available. The bathroom was big and bright, but the room was just a bit below the average Hilton or Marriott standard.
Downstairs the spa looked well equipped if a bit exposed to the view from the lobby. The restaurant is kind of Mediterranean in style, but I only had breakfast there which was typical buffet stuff, with the welcome inclusion of fried "tattie scones". Overall, this is good value for money for a central Glasgow hotel, but watch the car parking which is a bit small.
Just book it!
The Milton is definitely the best hotel I've stayed in for years. As other reviewers have said it just oozes class. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated and the bathroom was so good I felt like spending hours in it. The food and leisure facilities are also first class. But the best thing for me had to be the staff, without exception extremely friendly and efficient they couldn't do enough for you.
The surrounding area looks pretty grim at first site, in the shadow of a flyover surrounded by some dilapidated dock buildings (admittedly being done up rapidly) but once you get your bearings it's an easy walk to the main drag with some decent pubs and restaurants.
If you're coming to Glasgow I'd have no hesitation in recommending the Milton, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did
Decent hotel on the edge of downtown
I stayed at the Milton for a very good rate found via cheapohotels, and was satisfied with my stay. The rooms were spacious and the beds comfortable, though the carpets in both of the rooms I stayed in showed soem old stains. The breakfasts downstairs are quite good, with a large selection of items available to suit any tastes. The hotel is situated on the edge of downtown, and it is about a 10min walk to the Central Station area or Sauchiehall St., and about 12-15min to the Conference Centre.
hotel was not what i expected at all!! going by pictures available on different web sites for the hotel the lobby and bar looked really spacious, obviously a camera trick! hotel bar is really tiny and right beside reception desk. the pool, although nice, is again right beside the lobby and at the entrance to the hotel. standard twin room was small, bathroom bright enough but already showing signs of wear. had stayed in hilton last year and was probably spoilt! don't think i would hurry back considering there is such a vast choice in glasgow and better hotels available. after all, you do get what you pay for!
We stayed here midweek (at the beginning of October 2004) for 3 nights, and were upgraded to a larger room (suite). The Hotel is central, the room we had was spotless, the staff efficient and friendly, and the facilities swimming pool, gym, restaurant, room service) were excellent during our stay. Many thanks to previous TripAdvisor users for recommending this Hotel.
This is a Lovely Hotel. I was booked in here whilst in Glasgow for a course and could not believe how lucky I was. Good food, nice staff and the rooms were very comfortable.
Add to this the free parking and it is ideal.
I will be asking to stay here every time I`m in Glasgow.
The hotel has nearly all the amenities expected at a 4 star hotel. Service was good, employees were friendly. The internet was not working for 1 day, and we received only 2 TV stations after our 2nd day. Food quality was varied, depending of the meal and cook. The hotel is in a excellent location between center of town and the science center. Parking availability was plentiful and easy. Showers do have handicapped bars which would be frustrating if one would happen to be the slightest bit overweight. The pool, whirlpool, sauna, and steamrooms are all wonderful and clean. I would recommend this hotel, unless you are looking for the highest level of luxury.
We got an excellent deal from Late Rooms on this superb hotel. It was clean, luxurious, the service was good and the leisure facilities excellent. Even though it is a G3 postcode it is well situated for Central Station, (but don't get a taxi from there).
Stayed here at Christmas and had no complaints at all. The rooms are lovely (all Feng Shui'd to the hilt) and very very comfortable. The colour scheme was really different. Stayed there for a terrific rate of 49 pounds room only. It's a good stretch of the legs from the centre but if I managed it in pouring rain, high heels and with a hangover then most people can! Definitely worth a look.
Spotless and a fine value
The Milton is a fine value on the edge of the city center. We paid 49 and 59 pounds per night including VAT (but excluding breakfast). The reception was warm and professional. The hotel is new and spotless. The standard room was spacious with a great bathroom. There is a lively bar downstairs and a large indoor pool at the connected Leisure Club. This hotel may not have the charm of an older property but it certainly was comfortable. It's on the edge of downtown -- there are no restaurants or pubs in the immediate vicinity, but there are just a few blocks away. We would stay at the Milton again.

One of the more bittersweet experiences I will ever speak about is this journey to Glasgow for so many reasons. Overall, an absolutely unforgettable weekend with my two cousins, Rob and Gareth, and their friend, Chris, oh and 3500 of our best friends traveling from Ireland. Though, I'm quite positive most of those 3500 had a better idea and spent …
We got to the airport with plenty of time to spare and boarded 45 minutes before take off was due. Geoff had the window seat & I was in the middle next to a rather large woman. She was lovely telling us about visiting her sister in Karachi & now coming home to Glasgow. She then fell asleep snoring rather loudly so that there were a few smiles on peoples faces! We hadn't even taken off & I was getting less & less space to sit. We eventually took ...
... The pork belly was served in a little cast iron baking tray with baby potatoes that had been cooked in the pan juices. Yummy!
Zac had a risotto with chicken and mushrooms, he loved every mouthful. I tried a little of it, it was fantastic. Really good flavours and the risotto cooked perfectly.
Replete with a fantastic meal, we then staggered to the Glasgow Concert Hall for the police band concert. The show is part of the Piping Live festival and a ...

When we arrived back at the hotel I knocked on her door and gave her, her camera back, not telling her I took some photos for her, luckily she saw the funny side. I had a bacon steak for tea, which was in fact a pork chop, scottish humour I suppose. we visited Loch Lomond where Rob ...

So here we are, twelve hours before we the plane leaves for Dubai and we're about to start packing. There's a list of things to do first thing in the morning and a load of stuff we've passed over to our family to take care of while we are travelling. Hopefully, we'll get some sleep ...
