“My wife and I stayed here twice during our 3 week trek around Scotland. It’s located at the top of a main road that is 2 blocks from a main shopping district. Immediately nearby are several pubs, restaurants, cafes, and car parks. There is a train station and bus depot a few blocks away. The staff were some of the friendliest folks we met while touring around. They were very accommodating at the hotel, and helpful with directions to popular sights and shopping in the city. I was pleasantly surprised at how impressive the meals were presented. Everything was very flavorful…a treat for the eyes and palate!
The room was exactly what we needed, a clean and quiet place to rest for the evening. Our room and shower was clean (I saw no mold/mildew as in some other hotels we stayed at in our 3 week tour around the country). The TV was small, but we weren’t in Scotland to watch TV so it didn’t bother us. The bed was 2 twins set together and we did occasionally slip into the gap between them but it just made is chuckle at each other. A band around the 2 beds to hold them together could be a good upgrade item to consider.
If you are looking for an affordable centrally located hotel with access to shopping and restaurants, quiet spot to rest comfortably, a hearty traditional Scottish breakfast, great food and coffee then this is definitely worth it!”

“We went to a wedding for the full day at the Piping Centre which was fantastic!! Great place to have a traditional Scottish Wedding, food & service was fantastic and the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. We also stayed overnight at the Pypers Tryst including breakfast….rooms are adequate, good size and most importantly spotlessly clean and breakfast was plentiful and tasty. I have since purchased vouchers to stay here again as the restaraunt is cosy and the location is fantastic for accessing city entertainment. Looking at it from a wedding location venue I don’t think there would be many couples disappointed…. all round a great venue, hotel & restaurant.”

“We spent 2 wonderful days in Glasgow and we are glad that we stayed in The Pipers’ Tryst. It`s a fabulous hotel. If someone will ask us for a hotel in Glasgow we`ll definitely recommend The Pipers` Tryst! The hotel is very central and quiet anyway.
Our room was in the second floor. It was clean and the atmosphere was relaxing. The included breakfast was okay. For the greater hunger we could choose delicious ham and eggs from the breakfast menu.
The service was extremely friendly and attentive. Everything was just right and we felt very well.
We thank the staff for our wonderful stay”
