The Menzies Hotel is a four-star hotel with an excellent location near the centre of Glasgow, offering an ideal base for city breaks, shopping breaks and spa breaks. While the hotel stands on the site of a 19th century rice mill, it is a contemporary building with stylish interiors and excellent modern facilities.
Scotland’s largest city is packed with cultural attractions, including a wide range of museums, art galleries, venues and nightspots – and the Menzies Glasgow Hotel offers an excellent location for seeing it all. A prime spot just off Argyll Street means that the city centre is within walking distance, so the shops of Buchanan Street and St Enoch Centre are around ten minutes from the hotel, while there is a great selection of restaurants and bars within easy reach.
The hotel is situated close to the northern bank of the River Clyde, around a mile from the SECC and Hydro – making it ideal if you’re visiting the city to see a major concert or exhibition. For those looking for culture, the city’s famed Kelvingrove art gallery and museum is also within walking distance (or a quick bus journey), while the Lighthouse is within easy reach, and offers an excellent introduction to the work of the famed Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
If you’d prefer a more relaxed pace of break, the hotel features a day spa where you can treat yourself to a little pampering – an excellent way to unwind after a day in the shops or a night on the town. For something a little more active, the hotel also includes a large swimming pool and well-equipped gym.
Throughout the hotel, the style is contemporary and comfortable, from the relaxed, brasserie-style dining experience in the restaurant and the informal atmosphere of the bar, to the classic décor and cosy furnishings in the well-proportioned guest rooms. For a little extra space or an added touch of luxury, the hotel also offers a selection of apartments housed in the historic mill building, which are perfect for longer stays or family visits.
