It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…..and the Blythswood Square Hotel is in the festive mood.

I was lucky enough to be invited to come along to the Blythswood Square Hotel, where myself and other bloggers etc would be treated to Christmas themed canapes and fizz and here all about the festive offerings….plus a special guest (I wonder who that could be)

We all gathered around a big table, where we took many photos and mixed with each other. On the table were the festive canapes, all looked very good.

Tonight was about the new Festive Lunch and dinner menu

We were told that the Blythswood Square Hotel was recently taken over, and they were trying to make improvements to several aspects of the hotel (to be honest I liked it before so how could they improve it?). All of the things they mentioned sounded very good, but the main one was the impression it gives people.

They wanted to make the menu and hotel more relaxed, and rather than a “you only go there if your loaded” anyone can come and enjoy a drink or a meal or even both which is good and the way it should be.

After enjoying the drinks and the food, we all had to participate in a little game…..

We all had to decorate the tree’s on the table, and someone special would be the judge

This was my tree…and unfortunately, I didn’t win but hey it’s not the winning that counts its the taking part 🙂

Guess who the special guest was……..it was SANTA!!!! and we all had a photo or selfie taken with him.

Yup and I got a photo too 🙂

Overall tonight was very fun and everyone enjoyed the night……and loved seeing Santa again.

As I said the hotel is now doing a Christmas lunch or dinner in the restaurant, and it will only cost £20 which is really good. The festive menu is only on from the 1st of December till 24th, so give them a call and book you and your family or friends or even both in for a little festive treat.

This was an Itison deal I got as part of Mother’s Day, it was £19 for Afternoon Tea for two at the Apex Hotel in Glasgow.

I had never been here before to stay, dine or for Afternoon Tea but the images I saw on the offer page was very nice and I booked.

On arrival we were shown to the table, and asked what drinks we would like with the Afternoon Tea.

The Afternoon Tea…

When it arrived the presentation was very nice, and I couldn’t wait to start and see how this was compared to the other Afternoon Tea’s I have had.

From start to end this was very nice, my only issue was there could have been slightly bigger sandwiches or even a few more.

The one part of this that stood out was the little Haggis Bon Bon’s, these were AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!

Portion Size : 4
Flavour : 5

Overall it was a very nice day, and very nice Afternoon and definitely worth the money. If I see the deal on again, I will be purchasing it again.

Afternoon Tea at Hilton Garden Inn (Glasgow) : Review

I was invited to the bloggers launch night for this relaunch, but unfortunately I couldn’t attend as I was in Italy at that point.

So I added it to my list to try and today I visited.

I had only ever been here once many years ago, so I had a rough idea of how it looked. On entering what a difference, the area looked much bigger and brighter and very modern.

I took a look outside as it was a nice day, I can’t remember if this is how it looked or this is now been improved but either way its very nice, and looked very relaxing.

 

The Food…

Afternoon Tea £N/A (used a voucher)

 


On arrival the presentation was very nice, another unique way to present the Afternoon Tea. Some places I have been to go for the traditional way, others have tried to be a little more modern just like to day….either way it always works.

The afternoon tea was very fresh, tasty and I enjoyed it very much. My issue normally is when it comes to the scones is it cheap cream or clotted (this is the better option to have when doing scone jam and cream) today was clotted which was excellent.

Overall

The revamp here for me looks really good, I was very impressed at how much it had changed and improved the look and feel. For me the outside looked much nicer than the inside, but thats only if you have a nice day in Glasgow to sit outside.

The service was very good today, and we got chatting to the manager who was very pleasant and helpful.
