The best in the west ...end

from A TripAdvisor Member
One Devonshire Gardens - the best relaxation ever.

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

Simply fantastic

Nice but not excellent

from ScottishGal123
We stayed for one night in September. Although a lovely hotel have stayed in nicer hotels. The room (upgraded~) was quite small and did not have proper double glazing. The bathroom was lovely. If you are looking for a romantic stay, this is ideal. Any other reason I would go for the Radisson.

t do it justice.....

from LeilaJake
Thru the internet & Tripadvisor we found this hotel and decided to give it a try. We are SOOO glad we did. Words just can't describe what a little treasure this place is. From a huge bed, to a big plasma tv complete with dvd, Bose Radio, thru to all sorts of gadgets like a golf putting machine, this place is in a league of its own. The bathroom was massive with separate bath & shower (something you don't find in many hotels). The bath was massive and had candles incase you wanted to take a relaxing soak. They really have thought of much seems a pity to have to leave and go out sightseeing....!! If we are ever in Glasgow again this place will definitely be our only choice....!

Devonshire Delights?

from A TripAdvisor Member
One Devonshire Hotel is wonderful! from the relaxing welcome to the four poster beds and a marble bath big enough for two, this is a hotel that does spoil its guests!

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 expected

from Tebberen
The staff were excellent at this hotel and could not do enough for you. The hotel was extremely clean, and the room was exactly as expected.

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.

Want to impress people? Stay here

from snaggletooth
Funny, we've stayed at some of the nicest hotels in the world but we laughed at the response we got each and every time we met locals in Glasgow and answered the question as to where we were staying.
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
My wife and I stayed here 1-4 July and loved it. Another example of how using Trip Advisor paid off. The Staff was extremely professional and courteous, they could not have been better! Room service was prompt, as was drink service on the patio. Excellent help with directions, taxis, car reservations (they had the car brought to the hotel for us and arranged for us to drop it off @ the airport) and restaurant recommendations. Our room was a "standard" one (very large) with 15ft ceilings, canopy bed, wide screen/flat screen Sony TV, huge tub and couch/desk. Outstanding selection of soaps and bath products, robes, bottled water, cookies and fudge set out for you daily. Umbrellas, adapters and a fan were provided. In short, there was nothing the staff wasn't willing to provide or help us find - they were remarkable.

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 Arrogant

from kwh
One Devonshire Gardens is supposed to be one of the poshest hotels in Glasgow, and the women at the desk seem to know it. They were a bit too self-impressed and pompous for my taste. The hotel is also somewhat out of the way for sightseeing. The walk to the nearest underground station is a bit of a hike, as is the walk to the restaurant area on Byres Road. There is no air conditioning, so on a hot day the rooms are very hot. You can open the window, but there is a great deal of traffic noise from the street outside, which is a major road from the city center out to the northwest. For the amount this hotel charges for rooms, it really isn't that great. The area around the University of Glasgow, where the hotel is situated, is nice, though, and I must say the young men who helped us with our luggage were very pleasant.

Wonderful Discovery

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband booked this amazing hotel as a birthday treat - we discovered it on the internet and are so glad we did - definately book a return visit. Discreet Townhouse Hotel where you have to ring the front door bell to get in and are greeted by a porter. The drawing rooms are just amazing and this is where you "check in" before being taken up to your room. The hotel is a classic Victorian building but has every mod con you would expect from a modern hotel. I had the best swedish massage ever - done privately in your room by the hotel therapist. Fruit bowls delivered free with the massage, fully stocked mini bars with Fiji mineral water! Real Scottish Fudge and tablet left in your room by Turndown maid - but the real nice touch was the rose petals and candles left by the bath. Very romantic. Dinner was everything we could hope for - attention to detail and service from a very discreet staff made us feel a million dollars! If you are really lucky, you may even spot a few celebrities! Would thoroughly reccomend this 5 star experience.

Do NOT stay at this Hotel!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is stunning but the rooms are limited so please go elsewhere. I visit Glasgow regularly and do not want to find that I cannot have my favourite room in my favourite hotel in the UK because you have decided to try it out on some casual recommendation from a web site. There are lots of other hotels in the area. Some are probably quite nice, try them!

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.
