Blythswood Square has been a prestigious address since the early 19th century. Overlooking a private garden square, the hotel’s Georgian townhouses were originally home to wealthy merchants and were later turned into the club headquarters for The Royal Scottish Automobile Club.
Today, The Principal Blythswood Square Hotel is being spruced up for the 21st century, with a multi-million pound refurbishment that will refresh all of the existing guest rooms and suites with an elegant, new look; create a new, two-bedroom penthouse suite (with over £650K being invested); add 12 new bedrooms; and upgrade the Spa reception area and lounge.
Blythswood Square Hotel is one of Glasgow’s best-established and luxurious hotels, and the only one with an AA five-star accreditation. Widely acclaimed for its exceptional service, and winner of Hotel Manager of the Year at the 2017 Scottish Hotel Awards, the hotel also includes a grand-floor restaurant and first-floor bar (the Salon). Both overlook the Square and will also be refurbished over the course of 2018.
The chic, contemporary rooms feature Italian marble bathrooms, tea and coffeemaking facilities, satellite TV and free Wi-Fi. Suites add separate lounge areas and espresso machines. The penthouse has a private dining room, a free minibar and a rooftop terrace.
