CHARACTER & STYLE
This townhouse is grand yet relaxed, and you only really realise its size when you struggle to find your room. Despite sparkling chandeliers and soaring ceilings, it doesn't take itself too seriously. The lobby, with its photogenic entrance, is incredibly inviting.
If you've overdone it with either sightseeing or partying, get room service, hit the spa or join the lobby social hour for a medicinal glass. There's laundry service, should you drop an oyster in your lap, and you can work off your dinner in the gym or borrow a bike (beware that Glasgow hills are calf-killers).

Food & Drink
Restaurant Iasg (Gaelic for 'fish') has a glittering central bar bathed in light, with music at night. Try tempura oysters with a glass of fizz followed by blackened cod with a bacon-buttered sauce. The breakfast buffet is rather subdued by comparison; there's a supplement for a cooked breakfast.
iasg: modern Scottish cuisine, locally-sourced produce. All-day dining, bar snacks and Sunday brunch. Open daily from 12pm.
