Just come home after a 3 night stay and it was our 2nd stay here. Hotel staff and service was excellent, the food in the restaurant in the evening was magnificent but on each of our 3 mornings the quality of the breakfast on offer was really poor. Most things were swimming in oil but the black pudding and the... More

We stopped and stayed in this hotel when travelling to Glasgow. The check-in was efficient and rooms were clean and well maintained. We were very impressed with the quality of service and food of its restaurant. After the meal, we took a stroll around the hotel and were surprised by its surrounding. For a quiet walk, there is a beautiful... More

Arranged to meet old friends for lunch and a catch up chat. The 4 of us were favourably impressed by the service, the quality of the food and the overall atmosphere. Situated on the edge of the Strathclyde Country Park, the hotel is in an accessible location close to the main motorway M74 without the noise. After eating, we spent... More

Dear Ann G Thank you for holding your wedding at the Alona Hotel and I am very pleased that your wedding was a great success. I also value your other comments and would advise that the waitress that you met at breakfast has left the Hotel and should never have said the things she did. As regards access to the... More

We were on a package trip to the Military Tattoo and the Alona was our designated hotel, We received a good welcome and were quickly checked in. Our room on the second floor overlooked the car park no problem there. It was a large twin room with a walk in shower.For the evening meal we chose the lentil and bacon... More

Used this hotel as our base for two wonderful visits to the athletics at Hampden Park. We took a taxi to Motherwell station and the train to Glasgow city centre and then the shuttle bus to Hampden Park. All transport links ran smoothly. All staff in the hotel were very helpful and attentive. Room was clean and comfortable and the... More

If we’d paid the standard room rate we would probably have been happy with the Alona, which has pleasantly furnished rooms and a reasonable restaurant and bar. It’s a fairly standard modern hotel (none of it is exquisite or beautiful!) set in the attractive Strathclyde Country Park. It’s just a pity that the owners had trebled the rates during the... More

We visited on Sunday, hoping for afternoon tea or something like that. It was my mother's fourth day out of the house this year, so it was disappointing that we could not be accommodated in any way, as we had 2 well behaved clean dogs with us. We could have been served outdoors in the pouring rain, which wasn't very... More

This was our second time at the restaurant, I think it needs a name of it's own and would get near 100% on reviews as the quality of the food is superb and so unexpected at such a location. The restaurant has improved service since our last visit, still fresh and natural but more efficient and the pricing is good,... More

A family funeral saw the family (husband and two boys 15 & 12) heading for Glasgow on short notice. We came across this hotel on tripadvisor and gave them a call where, on hearing about the reason for the trip, they offered us a discount on the room price. They also gave good advice on how many could fit in... More
