Blythswood Square

Thankfifi at Blythswood Square Hotel-10


The husband and I have a thing.  When you see a dream home on tv or in a magazine or out on a walk… you say ‘hoose’ kinda long and loud.  Well, Blythswood Square is a hooooose.

I’d like to move in.  I’d like to enjoy the truly awesome thermal spa suite again and again and again (in my fluffy robe).  I’d like to eat like a king all the time.  I’d like to enjoy delicious cocktails I’d never come up with myself.  I’d like to watch complementary movies on my enormous flat-screen at the end of my bed every night.  I’d like to sleep for 12 hours (minimum) a night in that bed that was more like a small ship.  I’d like to perfect my ‘walking down the stairs’ video – you’ll agree, it needs work, but the window between bedroom and bathroom is essential to my progress.  I’d like to enjoy the views of the city, night and day, through the huge picture windows.  I’d like to eat those perfectly cooked dinosaur (ok, duck) eggs every morning.  And I’d like to live 5 star.

So, I know you can stay the night DB&B for just £140 which is a really great deal… but my question is this – how much to stay?  Forever.

    LOVE Blythswood Square – stayed there for my anniversary a couple of years ago, think we are going to book it again this year too. The window from the bathroom to bedroom was amazing – I remember having a bath whilst watching the TV in the other room, ha!
