Fodor's Expert Review Ambassador Hotel

7 Kelvin Dr., Glasgow, Glasgow City, G20 8QG, Scotland

Opposite the West End's peaceful Glasgow Botanic Gardens, this hotel is within minutes of busy Byres Road yet well away from its noisy weekend activity. The Ambassador is part of a collection 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. Looking directly onto the bridge on Queen Margaret Drive, it is comfortable without being pretentious. It is worth asking for rooms with a river view.
