Scotland's Newest Aparthotel
Native Glasgow marks a new way to stay
Leading aparthotel group Native has unveiled its first Scottish property, with Native Glasgow opening at the Anchor Line Building on 15th October.
Providing the perfect ‘home away from home’ from which to explore Scotland’s cultural capital, Native Glasgow marks a new way to stay for those visiting the city.
Located in the heart of Glasgow city centre, Native Glasgow sees the multi-million-pound restoration of an Edwardian Art Deco office building, formerly the headquarters of the Anchor Line Shipping Company, into a remarkable aparthotel, offering 64 apartments ranging from studio to penthouse spaces.
With a stylish modern finish, Native worked alongside interior architects ICA to preserve the building’s heritage. Guests can expect to see numerous original features, including glazed tiles, terrazzo flooring, timber wall panelling and fireplaces. The windows have been carefully restored and sourced by the same family firm that fitted them in 1906, whilst the coloured tiles in each en suite are a nod to the ‘wally close tiles’ used in the original sandstone tenements.
Native Glasgow provides all the benefits of a hotel but with the space, flexibility and freedom of a private apartment. Facilities include 24-hour reception, concierge and free high-speed Wi-Fi. In addition to this, the building’s ground and basement floors are already home to two popular restaurants, The Anchor Line and Atlantic, which are open from breakfast through to dinner.
This is a rare opportunity to reimagine a piece of Glasgow’s shipping heritage as a uniquely special space for the city’s visitors to stay. The magnificent Art Deco building’s glazed façade sold it to us as the ideal location for our first Scottish venture.
We have worked in close partnership with building owners, the White Building Properties Company (part of DiMaggio Group), to mirror the design ethos and opulence of a 1920s ocean liner. Native Glasgow feels like an exciting milestone in our plans to expand our aparthotel business across all major UK cities.
Guy Nixon, CEO of Native

The building is perfectly placed, just minutes from the central train stations and subway, and a fifteen minute drive from the airport, making it the ideal base from which to explore all parts of Glasgow as well as the rest of Scotland.
