Edinburgh City, Edinburgh (PRWEB) May 03, 2011
Blythswood Square in Glasgow has had an incredible last month. From celebrating the success of the 5 star rating on Visit Scotland to becoming the official partner hotel for the MOBOs, the month has got better and better. Throw in a couple of Scottish Hotel awards and the fact the AA has decided to give the hotel the much coveted 5 Star rating (first of its kind in Glasgow), you can see why the hotel are clearly excited.
Being confirmed as the official hotel partner for the 2011 MOBO Awards is testament to the hard work and care that has been put in to transform a landmark building in Glasgow to a top of the range 5 star spa hotel. The MOBO Awards is an awards show that celebrates urban music and attracts some of the world’s top artists - Which means the hotel will play host to some of the world’s top VIP’s which in the past have included artists such as P Diddy, Usher and Mark Ronson. Hans Rissmann, Managing Director of the luxury hotel, said: ‘We’re delighted to be working with Kanya King and her colleagues and we are very much looking forward to welcoming the VIPs here in October.’ The good feeling towards the hotel was further echoed by Kanya King, CEO and MOBO Founder, described Blythswood Square as ‘the place to visit for a glamorous and luxurious occasion’.
MOBO’s aside, other good news for the hotel was that it has become the first hotel in Glasgow to receive the coveted Five Stars from the AA. The award recognises all areas of the business from front of house to the more operational day-to-day running of the 100 room hotel. A spokesman for the AA Hotel Services said: ‘“AA Hotel Services is delighted to award Five Stars to Blythswood Square: the first hotel in Glasgow to achieve an AA Five Star rating”. Hans Rissmann, Managing Director, saluted the work carried out by all hotel staff saying “It is recognition for each member of staff and a great demonstration of teamwork.”
The AA award came fresh on the heels of another major pat on the back from top industry website Visit Scotland, who gave the hotel the official five star rating. This award highlights the level of customer care and range of facilities on offer at the luxury spa hotel. Other wins for the hotel this month included picking up the Best Spa, Best Five Star Service and Scottish hotel of the year at the Scottish Hotel Awards.
The hotel is offering the chance to experience their 5 star qualities at a reduced rate in spring. Whether it’s a romantic break, trip to the shops or a relaxing day at the spa, Blythswood Square is the ideal place to stay. The hotel occupies an enviable position in Glasgow city centre, close to many of the designer shops and features a great choice of bars & restaurants as well as having a top of the range spa facility. The spring offer runs for the month of April and includes a night’s stay in one of the individually designed bedrooms, full Scottish breakfast and 15% off the best bed and breakfast rate.
