Opposite the West End's peaceful Botanic Gardens, the Ambassador is part of a string of elegant town houses on the banks of the river Kelvin. The interior echoes the peacefulness of the location and the Victorian ethos of the spacious former family home. The rooms have a contemporary look, with rich red-and-gold fabrics and beech furniture.

We arrived early, by car to the ambasador hotel (10;30 am). There was nobody at reception ( despite sign on desk that reception was available from 7:30 am) . We entered with our bags and waited, along with another couple who just arrived from Toronto. Eventually a disgruntled chamber maid arrived, and said our rooms were not ready. We said we would gladly leave our luggage. tour amd return later. When we returned at 4pm a receptionist was there,
but our bags were still sitting in the dining room waiting for us to carry. The telephones did'nt work, the receptionist did her best and helped us cofirm our return flight. The overall welcome left much to be desired and at the price being paid it was as welcoming as a motel.
