Having read some of the reviews for The Ivory our expectations were not high but its location is ideal for Hampden Park where we were going to a concert. OK, perhaps some of the rooms could do with a lick of paint and the over bath shower isn't the most up to date BUT we had a lovely big room with bay window, perfectly clean and adequate bathroom.
When we arrived the bar was busy but had loads of cheery, helpful staff and service was quick, there were tables inside and outside and the conservatory was serving meals. The food here is lovely, not a huge menu but something for everyone and specials on the board, nor is it expensive at £12.95 for 2 courses.
There is a big car park which is very convenient and Hampden Park is only a 10minute walk.
It was explained to us that there would be a continental breakfast available as well as a cooked breakfast from 9am-10.30am, when we came down at 8.50am we were offered tea, coffee, orange juice to keep us going til cooked breakfast started, at 9am we ordered full Scottish breakfast which was excellent, sausage, bacon, scrambled egg, potato scone, hash brown, tomato, beans, toast and butter....waiting staff kept coming past our table to see if we wanted any more tea or coffee. It was very good and a lovely place to sit and eat, opposite Queens Park, and watch the world go by.
Nothing was any bother to all the staff here and their friendly welcome made it certain this is where we will be staying next time we visit Glasgow, they should all be very proud of themselves, their welcome puts many more 'grander' places to shame.
