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

Warning this hotel has a fair ground and discos. If you want a good nights sleep don't stay. There are guests walking around most of the night because thay cannot sleep due to the noise. Would we stay again no never. Did the manager call us as promised NO. There are better hotels in the area.

Dear Guest Thank you for your comments and for choosing to stay at the Alona Hotel. It is true that we have a Theme Park next to us which does contribute to the car parking being very busy at times but as the Outside Rides close at 6pm they do not cause any further inconvenience. We are also a very... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night after celebrating at a wedding reception in their semi-permanent Function Suite. The Alona Hotel is situated in Strathclyde Park just minutes off the M74 to Glasgow/the south and connects easily to the various motorways linking Scotland's cities. The building looks modern and well looked after. Service at check in was speedy... More

It’s hard to believe that this hotel is situated in the heartland of industrial Scotland being as it is in the beautiful Strathclyde Country Park at Motherwell. We stayed for one night, en route from Yorkshire to the North of Scotland which made the location, just five minutes from the M74, perfect. The Park is dominated by the Strathclyde Loch... More

This is the first time I've stayed at the Alona, normally I stay at the Holiday Inn just up the road - however I was very impressed with the Alona, great location next to the lake and very quiet. The restaurant was a little pricy by comparison, but the food was excellent. Breakfast was first class, hot and well presented.... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your very positive comments regarding our function suite. It is really a unique area and provides an excellent venue for weddings and large functions.

Visited here for a mid week catch up with friends. A couple of negatives like the waitress not being particularly friendly, waiting 10 minutes for drinks then having to remind them that we had ordered and the noodles dish being soaked in oil so it was almost inedible. However, it is a nice cosy restaurant, it had a good atmosphere... More
