“Handy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Stayed for one night at this hotel. It was clean and comfortable and the reception and booking in very easy. This hotel is in an ideal situation for the SSEC auditorium as well as the Armadillo and the Science Museum. We were attending a radio show at the BBC studios which, along with the STV studios, are within walking distance. There is a restaurant in the hotel and also other very good restaurants nearby. The only amazing thing was that when we went for a drink to the hotel bar they did not have any blended Scotch whisky. A hotel in the largest city in Scotland with no Scotch blended whisky? Doh!. They did however have a blended Irish whisky and also Scotch malt.
All in all a good hotel in a good location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the River Clyde.

Dear flembo69

Thank you for your review.

Please accept my apologies for the shortage in blended whisky – demand had been higher than expected however this was replaced the next day. One of our malts was reduced to the blended price to ensure value for money.

Kind Regards,
Brian

Stayed here on a Friday night. Booked a meeting room for a reunion where food and drink was served by the attentive staff. Food and wine was also fantastic and recommended. For a Friday night I was surprised at how quiet the hotel was and the view from the room over the river was superb. Breakfast was also brilliant with a fresh waffle machine the highlight. Thoroughly recommended

I have stayed here before as a City and a Mint branded hotel. Staff still have a smile are a very friendlt and helpful the transition to Hilton has maintained MACs int he rooms and all the usual refinements. Surprised that the mini bar was not stacked especially when arriving late at night. Breakfast excellent and new gym much bigger than previous fitness romm. Well done all round, I am back again next week and look forward to staying here.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, check-in went smoothly and my queries regarding the whereabouts of the nearest ATM and a taxi for the next morning were quickly sorted. The room was comfortable and clean and the bed very comfortable. The hotel had everything i required for an overnight stop - a decent shower, free wifi and a great breakfast.

The breakfast room was very nice and overlooked the river. I cannot fault breakfast, there was a really good choice and the staff on duty were very pleasant and helpful.

If i was visiting Glasgow as a tourist or visiting the SECC i would certainly recommend staying here although i must say that next time i'm just overnighting in Glasgow between flights i would probably find somewhere nearer to the airport.

My wife and I were staying in Glasgow for a couple of days and after a bit of research decided on this hotel as it was quite central and had a nice view. Room was nice, nice bathroom. Check in was simple and staff were friendly.
The hotel itself is narrow, this never seemed a problem till our second night. My wife is five months pregnant and after a full day of shopping and the cinema she was tired and wanted an early night. Unfortunately the hotel had a Christmas party on downstairs and the music was so loud you could hear the words of the songs and also the Djs voice from the 3rd floor. She managed to get to sleep but got woken up a couple of times. I called the desk for an explanation and the staff were helpful. the night manager apologised and offered to move us but as it was 2300 this was unpractical. The party stopped at 0000 and the music stopped. We were given a discount of that nights rate and our car parking charges were comped.
This did not appear to be the staffs fault but the hotel is not suitable for a quiets night sleep and holding parties. not ideal for a 4 star hotel.
Apart from the noise the hotel is lovely, breakfast was nice and staff are friendly. When checking in make sure there are no events on and if there are I would recommend asking for a high floor on the other side of the hotel.

Some friends and I stayed here overnight and were greeted with a smile and the minimum of fuss when checking in. My room had a lovely view overlooking the river, was very clean and modern with generous wardrobe and drawer space. Bathroom was compact but shower was spotless and was a great start to the evening ahead. Warm atmosphere in the bar where we had a couple of pre-dinner drinks and the meal was first class. After a late night, the varied breakfast on offer went down a treat and there was no rush as 11am was the cut off. I would definitely stay here again as I couldn't fault it.

Stayed on a three night break and could find no faults with the hotel at all. We were greeted by friendly staff who assisted in all that was asked over the stay and the room had everything required and was spotless.well done!
The location is excellent for the SSEC and city centre and there is also a stop for the city tour buses outside which offers a great way to get ones bearings round the city which has so much to see for all tastes! Lovely outside area to eat out or enjoy a drink by the riverside and reasonable parking adjacent.Thank you Hilton, will be back (when the rain stops!!)

Room Tip: room with river view a must
