The rooms were relatively small in this hotel and ours had a couple little glitches, but the very comfortable bed, excellent shower, generous and varied breakfast selection and especially the friendly and helpful front desk staff made this place a real pleasure.

excellent hotel, friendly staff, good breakfast and clean rooms. Cant argue for the price. As usual on arrival the staff are friendly, the rooms are always clean, quite small but again for the price you pay in central Glasgow you cant have any arguments.

The location of the Holiday Inn was its biggest advantage for me. In walking distance from the center, a metro stop and a railway station. The rooms are well tended and quiet. The breakfast buffet was good but nothing too special.
