On a recent trip to Glasgow, we were fortunate enough to be staying at the Kimpton Blythswood Square hotel, which is ideally located in the city and offers a great base from which to explore this vibrant city. The hotel itself has resided there for some time, however had been more recently taken over by Kimpton; an American brand that has begun to spread its wings on UK soil. The Blythswood Square addition is a fine example of the brand’s new direction.

The facade of this hotel is grand and impressive. The building itself exudes history, and the perfectly maintained gardens at the front of the building make the setting even more idyllic. When we arrived we were taken aback by how grand the hotel is given its proximity to the city centre and were really looking forward to exploring inside.

This hotel offers an abundance of facilities, including a wonderful spa which we had the pleasure to experience during our stay. With beautiful treatment rooms, two relaxation pools, a thermal suite, and a lounge area, this spa is certainly of a good size. Offering a range of indulgent treatments, we would highly recommend booking into the spa if staying at Blythswood Square. It’s the perfect place to relax during your visit, and guests can get complimentary access to the spa’s Thermal Experience during certain times of the day, which is well worth experiencing.

“This hotel offers a special experience in Glasgow city and we were especially impressed by the wonderful service, which was both friendly and personal.”

If it’s wining and dining you’re after, then Blythswood Square certainly has some solid options. The Salon bar was once named as one of the “best bars in the world” by Class magazine, and we can confirm that it is a fantastic space. Elegant surroundings make for a special ambiance that can be enjoyed while sipping a creatively crafted cocktail, or sampling a specially selected wine from the wine list. On the weekends, the bar also serves afternoon tea, which is quite the delight. Their restaurant, Bo & Birdy, was also consistently bustling during our visit, and offers modern brasserie fare in an inviting dining room.

In terms of accommodation, during our stay we experience Blythswood Square’s Deluxe with a Garden View room; the garden view being none other than Blythswood Square, no less. It made for a fine scene to admire over our morning coffee. The decor of our room used a neutral and relaxing colour palette and offered a wonderfully comfortable bed. The bathroom was complete with a single wash basin, a bathtub and a drench style walk in shower, all set in lovely dark polished marble tiles that adorned the walls, with chrome fixtures and fittings.

Our room was most comfortable and overall we had a great stay at the Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel. This hotel offers a special experience in Glasgow city and we were especially impressed by the wonderful service, which was both friendly and personal. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to visit Glasgow, and will certainly look forward to returning ourselves.
