Scotland’s hottest new penthouse revealed at Blythswood SquareMay 31, 2018
Glasgow’s only five-star hotel has revealed a stunning new addition to the city. Following a multi-million pound refurbishment, The Principal Blythswood Square Hotel has taken the wraps off a luxurious two-bedroom penthouse.
The spectacular Principal Penthouse stretches over 1,850 sq. ft. It comes with a private entrance and lift ensuring discretion for any high-profile guests staying at the hotel, making it ideal for celebrities, VIPs and press junkets, as well as for cocktail parties and events.
The penthouse also comes with an outdoor terrace that provides views across the city, as well as a fully equipped kitchen, bar and dining room. The master suite has been designed to cater for every need with a dressing room, full marble bathroom including bespoke steam room and sunken bath with integrated TV. The lastest wireless technology has been seamlessly installed to ensure an impeccable sound system that flows to every room.
Designed by the distinguished team at Graven Images, the Principal Penthouse gives careful consideration to every aspect of the interior: the carefully curated selection of furniture has been sourced from iconic brands including B&B Italia, Tom Dixon and Moroso; an L-shaped sofa in the main lounge is the largest single piece of furniture Graven has specified, manufactured by Sancal to easily seat a party of 20; bespoke timber and marble furnishings combine with locally sourced fabrics; bookmatch timber panelling blends perfectly with marble mosaic flooring; and every piece of furnishing and artwork has been hand-picked to create a sophisticated, contemporary abode with a Glasgow twist.
General Manager, Murray Thomson, said: “This penthouse has been months in the planning and the finished product is even more spectacular than I could have imagined. The property has been completely remodelled to make best use of the indoor and outdoor space resulting in a striking design that will be sure to impress any guest.
“There is a perfect balance between sleek lines and soft furnishings and the private roof garden looks out at the Glasgow skyline delivering one of the best views in the city. Now we are in a position to reveal the new look we can’t wait to welcome guests and let them experience the exceptional service that we are renowned for.”
Reservations for the penthouse are now being taken. Prices start at £2,500 per night. Event packages can be created on request including a personalised butler and chef.
The newly launched penthouse suite is designed to complement the existing 114 bedrooms and suites and 45 seat private screening room. Blysthswood Square Hotel also boasts a 10,000 sq. ft spa and fitness suite which has also recently undergone refurbishment. The hotel prides itself on using the finest ingredients from Scotland’s larder in its Glasgow restaurant and award-winning The Salon Lounge.
Blythswood Square has been a prestigious address since the early 19th century. Overlooking a private garden square, the hotel's Georgian townhouses were originally home to wealthy merchants and were later turned into the club headquarters for The Royal Scottish Automobile Club.
