We stay here when we stay in Glasgow overnight and it is always great. the reception staff are friendly, smily and very efficient. Breakfast in the morning can be a bit of a push and shove from the guests, but the waiting staff quickly replenish anything that runs out, with a smile and a quick remark. Well done to all of them.

I usually stay in business hotels that are not Spartan in nature. Decided to stay here because my stay was short and had to be downtown. Glasgow hotels are somewhat expensive compared to North American hotels given the exchange rates of dollar to British pounds. I was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel was clean, comfortable, the staff incredibly pleasant and helpful. Wifi was included as was a good breakfast. Very good location. Great value for a short stay. Will definitely return.

My wife and I have just spent two nights in this perfectly located hotel. The exceptionally friendly and welcoming staff made our stay so extra pleasant. Bearing in mind the normal type prices for a city centre hotel the facilities for what we paid were very good indeed. The hotel was spotless as was our comfortable bedroom.
We have stayed three times there and will be back.
The overall service considering the price was great.
Well done Holiday Inn Express.

The hotel is a good position for the Glasgow City centre. We stayed in Glasgow for the weekend and went to a concert at the Glasgow Concert Hall, ideal hotel for this and for the shopping. The room was very nice and very clean, the only down on the hotel was the breakfast, it was like sitting in a canteen, a bit too hecitc in the morning. The sausages were like lint, no choice of eggs, only bacon on a weekend!!! would rather pay a bit extra to have a nice "scottish breakfast". Were really impressed by the security, only lift working with room card.

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for your review regarding your recent stay.

As we are part of a large brand our complimentary breakfast is standard throughout and scrambled eggs, beans and sausage or bacon are the items served in all holiday inn express hotels.
If you require a breakfast with more hot items, we can offer our sister hotel, the Holiday Inn which is right next door to us at a very competative price.

We hope to see you again soon here at the hotel.

Warmest Regards,

Tracey Sweeney
