The history of the Blythswood Square building dates back to the early 19th century where it was once a set of Georgian townhouses owned by wealthy merchants but after careful restoration and a tasteful transformation this landmark building opened as a luxury 5 star hotel in 2009 with the only AA 5 star accreditation status in Glasgow.
Facing onto the beautiful manicured green gardens of Blythswood Square, a rare green space in Glasgow’s city centre, this young but well-established hotel has many aristocratic architectural features such as ornate ceilings, marble floors and fireplaces and a stunning sweeping staircase. Blythswood Square is a truly exceptional hotel in a prime location offering 5 star luxury and quality that will take your breath away.
The Blythswood Square Hotel has one suite, The Monte Carlo Suite, which can accommodate 80 dining guests and 120 evening guests in total and has an adjoining bar, The Rally Bar, which is ideal for use as a champagne reception area.
Wedding parties at the Blythswood can receive private access to the Blythswood Square gardens for use as a stunning backdrop for wedding photos or even a unique alfresco drinks reception for your wedding guests. The hotel has a private cinema room which is the first of its kind in Glasgow and can be used to show wedding photos or memorable movie and has a capacity of 40 guests at a charge of £250.
Ceremony hire ranges from £650 – £1750 depending on the amount of guests attending and where you wish your drinks reception to take place and the cost for room hire includes a dedicated wedding coordinator.
