No pool or gym facilities when I inquired. No availability in restaurant but was told I could eat in bar from restaurant menu. Went to order in bar and... More

Stayed here for a night to do some shopping in the city and was delighted with the location and the proximity to the shops. We had a twin room which was compact and might have been difficult had we stayed for longer. The bathroom was of a good size and very modern. Location, as I said, for the shops and... More

There was only one spare socket to use which was bad as I had 4 devices to fully charge. The internet access is free is you join their loyalty club otherwise you have to pay. Internet... More

We only stayed here for one night during the Commonwealth Games. I've taken off one point for the inflated prices during this time. The check in was extremely efficient and staff were friendly. The welcome goodie bag during the games was a nice touch. Rooms were a good size and very comfortable. Breakfast was very good, with a good selection... More

I stayed here for a week during the 2014 Commonwealth Games, as a base to work from. It is easy to find and very well located for transport (10 minute walk - mostly uphill - from Glasgow Central train station, 2 minute walk from Buchanan bus station, 5 minute walk from Buchanan Street metro station). It is also 2 minutes... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Holiday Inn for 2 nights just after the commonwealth games. The hotel is located just off the main shopping street, with Buchanan Street metro less than 5 mins away. I arrived at about 8:30am as I had come up from London on the sleeper. I had requested an early check in (11:00) but... More
