Apex Hotels unveil first Glasgow venue
Ian Springford Architects have completed a £2m refurbishment of the former Marks Hotel on Bath Street, Glasgow, on behalf of Apex Hotels.

This work entailed the refurbishment of all 103 rooms, public areas, bar and restaurant to four star standard in addition to external fabric repairs and an upgrade of building services.

Springford, who is also chairman of Apex Hotels, said: “We have been looking for the right opportunity to expand into Glasgow for some time. In terms of size and location, the Bath Street property is an ideal fit for Apex Hotels and is a very welcome addition to our growing portfolio.”

Apex Hotels has a portfolio of nine UK locations, principally in London and Edinburgh.

The busiest and most profitable hotel that the Apex group have is the one at Dundee Waterfront which was built around 10 years ago.

Great hotel, good luck with the Glasgow venture.

Great pity that the opportunity didn't arise to remove or somehow mitigate the awful brutal canopy that just out and is so, so, out of place, in this quarter

#2 Don't worry we can see the roof from our office - the contractors have failed to complete the metal facia when the roof was damaged with the wind early in the year. Another strong wind this winter and the roof will be off! Assume the scaffold was down before the architect had a chance to inspect!
