First I'll do the bad points. The hotel can get very hot in summer, thankfully a lot of the rooms have big French doors that open up to the outside world, this helps a lot. The hotel is not exquisite, like it claims, its just a very nice hotel, a cut above some other budget hotels nearby. There is no... More

Decided to check out the Alona for a lunch and was not disappointed. Lunch menu was very good and suitably varied with options for two or three courses. Setting is really nice within the park. Restaurant is like a large conservatory with plenty of room. Lounge area is adjacent and nice to have coffee or tea there. Staff were particularly... More

We stayed in the Alona Hotel for two nights, during an organized tour, as a basis for travelling to Edinburgh and Glasgow. The room was large, modern and comfortable. It was well equipped with a rich coffee making set, a safe box and enough electricity outlets for charging our phones and computer. WiFi reception was very good. On the downside,... More

We pre-booked afternoon tea in July 2016 based on reviews on trip advisor. Unfortunately our experience was far from pleasant. We were seated on arrival and offered drinks. After this, despite the fact that our booking was at 1pm, there was no sign of our food until after 2pm. At one point, the waitress stopped by to let us know... More

Weekend stay to attend events What worked well: beautifully situated in the grounds of Strathclyde Park, within super-easy walk of the artificial lochside. It's well served by a plethora of outdoor activities, from walking, to rowing, running and birdwatching, and just 15 minutes from Glasgow city centre by cab if the notion for a night out in town takes you....

The staff were very friendly and was welcomed and offered a free glass of Red or White wine by the reception staff. The hotel is a little dated but clean and tidy and represented value for money, would consider staying again if in the area.
