Expert reviews

Lonely Planet review:

“This former church is a longtime favourite for its decadent decor and plush lines. Stylish rooms with mood lighting have a dark, brooding tone and opulent furnishings.”

“Nothing orthodox about this former Greek Orthodox Church, transformed into a stylish modern boutique hotel in a city centre location. There’s a lively lounge bar, excellent brasserie dining and a casual bar.”

Bar area

Great location for a weekend!

Very comfortable clean rooms. Bar lovely and a great cooked breakfast.

Room was overheated so didn't sleep well.we overlooked the bar roof and rain pinged off it all night...nothing could be done about rain but just a constant noise.

Hotel gem in the heart of Glasgow

Wonderful location, very friendly staff and excellent value for money. What's not to like. Breakfast was fantastic, the best scrambled eggs ever!!

Pleasant and relaxing break

Andrew on reception was fantastic, spent time to ensure we were aware of all facilities and greeted us with a big smile which made us all feel welcome immediately. Really pleased gentleman

No beans with breakfast is probably my only fault

Welcoming staff and relaxing atmosphere. Good choice few nights in Glasgow.

The bedroom was a bit dark.


30 January 2024

Very good

There was a really lovely receptionist called Megan - she was ace! And made the stay memorable

A v pleasant comfortable stay in easy walk of city centre

Great location - easy walk from events and food we were going to. Friendly welcome. Comfortable room. Great breakfast

Decor wise we found it all very dark . To us this felt dingy rather than cosy


24 January 2024

Good room, but hotel restaurant could be improved.

Provision of clean non-slip bath mat and handrails for bath. Warning about temperature of water. Good bathroom facilities overall.

Poor coffee at breakfast and exorbitant price. We only had breakfast on the final day for convenience.


14 January 2024

We came for one night - stayed for two !

The style is great, the staff friendly and professional. Breakfast is well presented and good.

The entry level double room is small and the bathroom is particularly cramped. The room lighting is full on with no way to create a less bright ambience.


13 January 2024

Okay despite some issues

Clean and well presented. Good food and great staff!

Somehow the cold water was very warm. Didn't feel safe or pleasant to drink or to make coffee with it. The same pipes were also quite noisy and pressurised and would spray water and air when I opened the tap after a few hours of staying closed.


8 January 2024

A lovely property with even lovelier staff.

The staff were personable and professional, the Staycation package was great value and the room and public areas had personality and met 4* standards.



5 January 2024


Great breakfast, lovely hotel with great staff

Floor in room very creaky and noisy


5 January 2024

Short break

Very quiet, good location, friendly staff.

Very creaky floorboards and perhaps the cleaning could be upped a bit. Overall a good stay.

Some Excellent and Some Not-so Excellent staff

Some absolutely excellent staff at both front desk and the restaurant at breakfast who were friendly and happy to help at all times. The food at breakfast was excellent. The bed was really comfy and I had a great night's sleep.

There was a bar tender serving when we came down who was turned with his back to us watching the football on the TV very intensely. I know that he knew we were there as we it's a small area and we were only a meter or so away so he was deliberately ignoring us until we said excuse me. When he did turn round he looked quite grumpy and delivered fairly frosty service before returning to the TV screen. I would expect this attitude from staff at McDonald's but not Malmaison. The front desk staff and breakfast staff were absolutely amazing and faultless 10/10. I was slightly disappointed with the club room as it seemed the size I would expect for a standard room at Malmaison and didn't have the extra small luxuries I'd expect e.g. the bath tub was still too small for me to actually use as a six foot tall person so I was disappointed not to have a bath. The tap was also terrible and only produced a trickle so took ages each time you filled the kettle or washed your hands etc. the water pressure in the shower was also pretty bad which I would not expect in a luxury hotel

Enjoyable but could have been better

Location was ideal

The upgraded room 552 , was a good price but a very impractical room , with poor lighting on stairs , bedroom up stairs , bathroom down was a bit of strange one.. Tee/coffee making was a little over the place as only 1 power point up stairs .. shower had 2 temps, scalding or freezing. And weirdly the light coming off the air con was like a full beam car at night.. we enjoyed our stay but feel that room was just a little bit all over the place and may need looked at.

Met our needs totally. Good value.

Room facilities as travelling with dog was great as dog given own bed and toys plus treats. Bar facilities for dining was useful as had dog. All staff friendly and made big fuss of our dog. The bed was comfy and large.

Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.

Lovely hotel. Very nice staff. Excellent breakfast.

Room was on the small side but still a very nice room.


22 December 2023

Great value for a bit of class.

Breakfast was very good, produce and service.

The offer of an upgrade was unrealistic, this should be available as a buy it now.


20 December 2023

Drinks and food were excellent, every staff member I meet was really lovely

Best Male I’ve started in, some are a bit tired, this was lovely

The room was sometimes too dark to see, I love atmospheric but this was a bit ott
