Dining

Elliot's Restaurant & Bar
Elliot's Bar Restaurant is a well thought-out bar and adjoining brasserie-type-affair, another Bath Street subterranean drinking affair. This one's aimed at the more tailored boozer, well presented in bright red details over black ash and crisp white linen. The menu spans the globe with some interesting options for a mid-price lunchtime bite.
Massimo Italian Restaurant
Massimo Glasgow opened in 1996, it is situated close to the main attractions in Glasgow city centre and being opposite the King's Theatre makes it ideal for theatregoers and thespians alike. With a warm and modern interior it makes a relaxed and informal atmosphere, perfect for a romantic dinner for two or a family night out. Courteous and friendly staff will make sure that you and your friends or family have a good time and a great meal. All food is freshly cooked to order and only the finest seasonal produce is used. The speedy service and excellent value make it an ideal dining stop prior to a show or as a night out in itself.
Bar Budda Sauchiehall Street
Bar Budda on Sauchiehall St in the bustling city of Glasgow is one of the city's busiest and best bars. For a night on the tiles they have DJ's playing most nights with some party tunes to get you in the mood and some great drinks promotions to top it off. Recently refurbished in March 2008 Budda is a well established Bar with quality and great value for money Pub food. Their menu will have something to tickle those taste buds! The Evening Times calls them one of the 'Best Bars in Glasgow' with good reason; it is the perfect pre-club location now it is open till 2am at the weekend for you to party all night. As a bonus it's FREE ENTRY ALL NIGHT!! And there are some seats outside for you smokers or just some summer drinking.

lovely room & great central location

We had two rooms with three in and both rooms were large, individually quirky & had everything you need. I would rate it higher than a 3 star. Large bathroom & good shower. All staff were very obliging. Well done Best Western! xx

Excellent for city break

Staff very helpful and friendly.. Room very comfortable. A good location for the city centre. Train station very near if you wish to travel outside Glasgow. Just a pity that the hotel had trouble with the water supply during my stay! All in all, a lovely experience. Would stay there again.

Best Western is trying to get it right

I have really enjoyed my stays at a number of Best Western hotels in Scotland. I really enjoy how they are refurbishing older inns and buildings to modern standards and keeping some of the old charm. The Glasgow City Hotel unfortunately didn't quite measure up to the standards of the others I have stayed in.

Very enjoyable, the staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Great breakfast . Our room was clean and comfortable with a huge bed. The only suggestion would be to improve the wine it was fairly grim
