I left this hotel with mixed feelings. The rooms were stuffy and dark with very very tiny windows and there was no mini gym or pool - so the place felt claustrophobic.My room also overlooked an industrial row of fans followed by a brick wall. I found myself avoiding going back to the room. On that basis alone I'd not... More

Quite a small Holiday Inn, conveniently located. Check in was quick and the receptionist was friendly. She sorted out a room on the top floor, street facing which was the quietest available. Only one small lift available. My room was a reasonable size given that city centre rooms tend to be smaller. I never know why hotels put dark furniture... More

Dear Mark, Thank you for your recent review. I was delighted to read that overall you enjoyed your stay. We did have one of our lifts out of order, this has now been fixed and we are running with two lifts. We are also getting secondary glazing installed which will help with the sound insulation.

I am not a fan of Holiday Inn, but this hotel was not too bad. Staff were helpful and friendly. The room was comfortable and clean, Wifi worked and location was good, walking distance to most everything.

We attended the Eagles concert at the Hydro Glasgow and stayed at this hotel overnight. The room was small but compact. The hotel was located quite central to everything and although no parking on site, parking is available locally at discounted rates to the hotel. If visiting Glasgow again would definitely consider stopping at this hotel.

I stayed two nights while attemding a conference , and found this hotel was perfect for all my needs. To start, we arrived very early on the forst day and this was no trouble for the staff who said our room was ready even though it was only 9am, this meant we could leave our things and get sorted before...

Stayed here for 2 nights and had a really mixed bag of service. Some members of staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful, while others could have turned milk sour and did not seem to enjoy their jobs at all. The room, however, was inoffensive, the bed was very comfortable and the television worked - something i have not... More

This was intended to be a cheap and cheerful overnight stay but turned out to be a very enjoyable break. The location of the hotel is the best in the city - only minutes to the main streets and the train station; and the staff were fantastic - very friendly, helpful and accommodating, especially Danielle who was particularly welcoming.

Stayed here on a business trip to Glasgow. Have stayed here before and location is perfect for me. Also very close to Buchanan bus station so you can jump onto a number 500 bus from the airport and be within 3 minutes walk from the hotel so travel is not a problem.

Stayed at this hotel for two nights and had an excellent experience. Clean room and a well renovated bathroom. Not huge but well organized with a decent sized tv.
