“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

Selected this hotel on the basis it was the 'number 1' hotel in Glasgow going by the tripadvisor reviews. It is well worth that accolade, an excellent hotel and we will definitely return!

Stayed at the Indigo for only one night on a shopping trip, This Hotel is an excellent standard, rooms are very modern with quality fittings.
Bathrooms have only a walk in shower but this is not a problem to us, luxury bathroom with luxury toiletries.
We were really pleased with the lovely room and compimentary mini bar.
Great location for shops station etc...
Breakfast was fine, waiter service not buffet but the continental breakfast was buffet style which was ok but we felt that they could of layed fresh breads out more often as not much on the buffet when we were dining which was at 8am!!!
Overall a luxury city hotel and I would count this hotel as the top city hotel in glasgow.

Stayed in a deluxe room (upgraded from superior). Was nice, but don't think it would normally be worth the extra money as only difference seemed to be a bigger tv and spirits in the mini bar. Complimentary mini bar a nice touch, plus White Stuff goodies in the lovely bathroom.

We had a corner room which didn't have a lot of floor space but the bed was huge and comfy and the double-glazing made a massive difference (not that there was much noise outside at night). Breakfast was nice enough but nothing special for the cost, not sure if there would be anywhere else nearby to use though. Parked at Q Park next door, they give you a 50% off voucher and we paid £3.50 to stay from 1pm Sat - 11 am Sun, very cheap.

Let down by the bar not having any Jack Daniels or Baileys when we got back from our meal, plus we were then £12 for two alternative drinks. Wish we'd just stayed at the place we were at.

Overall, a nice stay, much more modern hotel than most in Glasgow plus nice restaurants in the area and a short walk into the shops.

I stay in IHG hotels all the time (Platinum Royal Ambassador) but this is my first stay at an Indigo and if Glasgow is typical of this brand I'll definitely be hunting out Indigo hotels in the other cities I visit.

Hotel was stylish and the bed very comfortable, although the room was a bit on the small side it had everything you'd need and a very nice large screen TV. The hotel features a very nice bar which can get very busy and a decent selection on the 24 hour room menu. Everything in the mini bar is free.

I'm not sure if I was upgraded as I never do ask but I was recognised as a platinum member at checkin (only InterContinental Hotels recognise the Ambassador part of the status). Staff were superb throughout.

Based on this stay I'd rate Indigo above the Crowne Plaza which is IHG's other upscale 4-star brand. I'd say this hotel must have came quite close to being rated 5-star.

Stayed here last Saturday with my wife on a dinner bed and breakfast basis.Due to circumstances outwith control of hotel dinner was not available.Management team and staff did everything possible to minimise a very awkward situation.The next day staff were just as considerate.A very well appointed hotel very reasonably priced.We shall definitely return on our next visit to Glasgow.

Room Tip: We stayed on second floor room was excellent.

After reading glowing reviews, we had to try this hotel during a shopping trip to Glasgow. Location is good, close to M8 and Central Station, but not so handy for Sauchiehall St or Buchanan St shops. Check in was a pleasant experience, with a very smart foyer and a smiling receptionist; she offered us a choice of blue, green or pink rooms, and free cocktail tickets - she seemed surprised when we declined the latter. Our executive room was quiet, spacious by city hotel standards, with a comfortable king bed, startling pink decor and lighting (maybe blue or green would have given more soothing surroundings) and a bathroom which seemed tiny, due to the enormous shower cubicle which took up about half of the space - a standard cubicle instead might have allowed a bath to be fitted; however we did appreciate the rain shower and the quality toiletries. In the room was a decent TV with a full range of freeview channels, a cafetiere for coffee and a DAB radio - although an iPod dock would have been more useful.

So far so good; our problems began with the free WiFi: we weren't supplied with a password on check-in (why not?) so I had to phone down for one. Once up and running, the internet worked for about 10 minutes on the iPad then slowed to a standstill. Another phone call established that they had been having trouble in certain areas, and an engineer was due the next week to look at it - no use to us. Then we discovered that the password only allowed access to one appliance, so no WiFi on our phones. So we gave up on that and went down for dinner.

Shock - when the lift door opened on the ground floor the noise from the bar hit us like a punch on the solar plexus. It was 7.30 on a Friday evening, and we were deafened walking through the masses of young people in the bar to get to the dining room. Unfortunately for us many of the noisy young followed us, so between them and the loud background music, conversation throughout the meal was difficult. The dining room decor and the food were lovely, and the price reasonable, but don't choose this place for a quiet night out, at least on a Friday.

IC Hotels have bravely tried to break away from the sixties feel of their Holiday Inn chain, and I think they should be applauded for this. £84 per night for a quite luxurious boutique city centre hotel represents good value, especially if you are a twenty-something female into lurid pink decor and drinking cocktails. Probably not for us, I am afraid.

Room Tip: Avoid a pink room and a Friday night stay!
