Everything is perfect in The Pipers' Tryst Hotel. Good location, reasonable price, excellent facilities, and professional service from their staff (especially the girl Natalie). If I revisit Glasgow, I will choose The Pipers' Tryst Hotel again.

We booked 1 night's stay here because of the Piper's Tryst's cental location, good reviews, and competitive price. What many of the reviews don't capture is just how welcoming and hospitable the staff are (including offering a "wee dram" on arrival). They really are committed to making you feel welcome! The rooms are comfortable, well equipped, and well laid out,...
