malmaisonThe Malmaison lives in a former Greek Orthodox church, and it offers up something a little more quirky and chic for a 4* hotel stay. They are now newly renovated, it’s never been a better time to treat yourself. Bright colours and kitsch deco ensure that this escape stands out from the crowd, and the cocktail ‘malchemists’ love the challenge of mixing something up just to your taste. If you want the experience without the room stay, then check out this offer of a couple of cocktails and fancy nibbles for just ten pounds, and make sure you enjoy a top meal in the basement. Don’t worry, this isn’t just any underground hideaway: it just so happens to be chef Martin Wishart’s The Honours restaurant. It’s a firm favourite of the Glasgow Living team, and the worst kept secret when it comes to an unforgettable food and drinks experience.

No spa, but the bathrooms alone will make up for that. Check in, spend a sumptuous evening in the bar/grill and snooze in a fabulous suite. They say they provide the ‘luxury that Glasgow deserves’, so it would really be rude not to.
