Blythswood Square picked up its biggest award yet when the Glasgow hotel was named AA Hotel of the Year Scotland.
First introduced in 1992, this award is the AA’s ultimate accolade for hotels in the UK. It is awarded to those that are recognised as being outstanding examples in their particular market. Entrants can be small, family-run hotels to the most ambitious commercial ventures and hotels of every size and style are considered.

About Blythswood Square, the judges said: ‘Lovingly restored by the present owners, this hotel has everything you would expect from a five star hotel. Throughout the bedrooms and the public areas d├ęcor and objet d’art reflect this aspect of the building’s history creating a focal and discussion point.’

Peter Taylor, Chairman of The Town House Collection, owner of the five star property, was naturally thrilled to receive the award. He said: ‘It is exactly a year ago just now that we completed the transformation of the former Royal Scottish Automobile Club to Blythswood Square, and what a wonderful way to mark the anniversary!

‘Since we first came to Glasgow and began the restoration of this ‘grand old lady’ it has always been our intention to create the best hotel in the city. With this award from the internationally recognised AA I believe that we’ve achieved that. This is a true testament to the skill, dedication and hard work of the team and to the support that we have enjoyed from all our customers and guests since we opened our doors.’

AA Hotel Services manager, Simon Numphud, said, “Blythswood Square was selected as the winner of this award because it is a stunning new addition to the hotel scene in Glasgow. Any new hotel opening has many challenges, but Blythswood Square has had more than its fair share and the amazing result is a true testament to Peter Taylor for creating such as wonderful hotel. It is certainly a worthy winner.”

The AA Hospitality Awards bring together some of the most influential people within the hospitality industry to recognise the outstanding accomplishments of high-achieving AA establishments and individuals. The award event also sees the launch of the 2012 AA guides to UK hotels and restaurants, which contain details of all the winning establishments

Blythswood Square 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. This is in recognition of Blythswood Square’s consistent excellence across all standards of operation, including housekeeping, service and hospitality.”

Hans Rissmann, Managing Director, said: ‘We have been enjoying a particularly successful period in terms of winning awards here at Blythswood Square, however, this latest one from AA Hotel Services is very special as we’re the first property in the city to receive it. The AA brand is known nationally and internationally and as such the standards required in order to achieve it are very exacting. It is recognition for each member of staff and a great demonstration of teamwork.’
