“First visit to Glasgow”

We have just returned from a 3 night 4 day break at the Argyll.We can not praise this hotel enough. On entering we were greeted by very friendly reception staff. Our room a double was very clean and tidy. The breakfast was wonderful and a member of staff Linda couldn’t do enough.We could order the eggs we wanted and nothing was to much trouble.We would definitely recommend this hotel.
