The best in the west ...endfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Just felt I had to write something about what my partner and I class as THE best hotel to stay at in the world.
We have recently had the pleasure to stay in some pretty great hotels worldwide:
Presidential Suite @ Sheraton On The Falls - Niagara Falls Canada
Westin Turnberry - Turnberry UK
To name a few. The hotels we have visited over the years are therefore not inferior in themselves but rather, they fade into insignificance compared to One Devonshire Gardens.
Let me just describe one dining experience (Not even an overnight stay):
We arrived @ 6pm - early for evening meal due to availability. Shown from the door, which was promptly opened for us, coats taken, and then shown into the drawing room. Drawing room is the main lounge/sitting area where you are ushered prior to sitting down to eat. Here you are offered perhaps canapes / apperitif and the wine list to peruse. Some time later you are brought your wine selection to view - not taste obviously.
For us, after 30 odd minutes, we were unhurriedly shown into one of the main dining rooms. From there followed the usual tasting of the wine, napkins unfolded onto lap etc etc.
The meal was fantastic, four courses - generally always a beautiful pre-starter, followed by coffee and petit fours in the drawing room following the meal. All in we left the premises after midnight. That is what I class as a relaxed, enjoyable meal.
The description above depicts our first time at One Devonshire. We have since been back many many times and cannot comment on how good this place is. With the addition of ROOM restaurant, who have taken over the space which Gordon Ramsay's establishment used to fill (Amaryllis), the mix between opulence with a modern twist is just right.
One Devonshire rooms are great, luxurious and cosy. Huge drapes and fine antiques. Only suggestion I would make is to opt for that little bit more expensive room when booking - it will pay dividends in the long run.
Forget the rest One Devonshire's the choice to make

Devonshire Delights?from A TripAdvisor Member
But (and there always is isn't there!) I won't rush back to the ROOM S bar the decor is lovely, mood lighting etc, however the cocktails weren't up to much and the staff did try, they were waiting tables and then trying to make the drinks! For a 5 star hotel as this, I do feel this was a let down! We weren't going into town for drinks as we had booked a meal at the Hotels ROOM restaurant, I feel that the skills of a real barman would have been a good idea!!
Hotel = Luxury!
Bar = not so good
Restaurant = Yummy!
Overall was very pleased we gave One Devonshire a try!
Almost what we expectedfrom Tebberen
Little touches like rose petals by the bath, and a signed card from the manager were nice. The gym was small but very nice.
However, we did have one small complaint- if that is the right word.
Coffee and tea were not provided for you to help yourself- which would be alright, except we were charged £3.00 each every time we wanted one. Considering how much we were paying for a room (without breakfast!), I would have expected coffee/tea to be complimentary.

Guess a few celebs like One Devonshire.
It got to be a joke, the response people gave us when we said we were staying there !
Beyond that, we really loved the hotel. Very beautiful large room. I loved the putter and automatic golf ball returner in the room.
Great giant bathroom. The room had a lovely smell lile cedar wood.
Breakfast was nice, served in the cute little room.
Byres road was where we headed each night. Had a lot of fun at the bars lining the road. Met lots of nice folks there.
Can't say I'd return to Glasgow again, since we were in Scotland to check out Sunday at the British Open, and stayed a few more days mainly because we wanted to relaxe at this great hotel. If ever in Glasgow, there is no place I'd rather stay than this great little hotel.
Great Place To Stay!from A TripAdvisor Member
The building was gorgeous and felt like a very upscale B&B more than a hotel. Breakfast was served on white linen with prefect service.
It was somewhat pricey, but I absolutely got what I paid for. Not a single complaint - this place is perfect for couples.
Posh but Arrogantfrom kwh

Top Local Tips for Glasgow
The Art Gallery It's as great as ever despite a lot of dumbed down nonsense that goes on in galleries and museums everywhere these days. It's free and has nice cafes. Go when the kids are at school as it has a load of silly noisy things for kids now, and if you like your art as a visual experience you'll be hard put. Parking at the back is easy and cheap.
Great place to eat... Traditional scottish food at The Bothy Restaurant in the west end. Gorgeous food, reasonable prices, fantastic atmosphere.
Head for Byres Road There are lots of bars and eateries around Byres Road, near Glasgow University. Ubiquitous Chip in Ashton Lane is not cheap, but good food. For a good curry try the 'Wee Curry Shop' above the pub opposite the Chip. It's tiny, but great. For cocktails, try Bar Bo, on the corner under the Hilton hotel - they'll mix you just about anything, and make a delicious bourbon smash.
