“Beware "airport parking" offer”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

The airport parking is actually just a large field next to the hotel. And when I say field I mean...field. There is no lighting, no pathways, no set-out parking spaces, no attendants, no netting to stop the grass from turning into grade-A mud when it rains.

Upon collecting the car, all these issues that seemed relatively minor when leaving the car on a dry afternoon, very quickly became major ones. Of course, I collected our car at midnight, in the rain, after a long day of travel, with my wife and sleeping baby waiting. So in the pitch dark I walked through the wet grass and mud, found the car and then proceeded to coat the entire car in an inch of mud with my efforts to get out of the car park. Oh, did I mention NO DISCERNABLE EXIT in my list of things that the "car park" didn't have?! So quite pleased with myself at managing to manoeuver the car out of it's space I then struggled to actually get out of the field. I think what had happened was the hotel, in some kind of ill-advised, half-hearted attempt to control the flow of traffic in and out of the field, had cordoned off one of the entrances/exits, leaving only one way out, which was rather a tight squeeze and obstructed by parked cars and huge mud-filled ravines just waiting to break my car. In my attempts to exit I did end up getting stuck for a few worrying minutes but after spraying mud everywhere and probably half-wrecking my car I eventually managed to escape.

I will stop ranting now. Suffice to say, the 'airport parking' is a joke. A really bad joke and the hotel should convert the field into a proper parking area or stop offering the service. I did complain to the staff at the desk about my experience and they promised me a phone call from the manager the next morning. I am still waiting for that call.

Before our departure on holiday (and before the above escapade) we did stay in the hotel. The rooms were OK but in need of refurbishment, the baby cot was not set up (despite a pre-arrival request to do this), the noise from the function downstairs was noticeable and the bed was, quite frankly, pretty shocking. Lumpy and with springs digging into our backs, it did not provide a comfortable few hours sleep before getting up at 3 in the morning for our early morning flight.

So unfortunately I an unable to recommend this hotel on any level. And I remain really quite angry about my midnight experience in the field of doom.

On entering our room it was far too hot! The heating system was ancient and would not turn off!
The room decor was awful, wallpaper peeling off walls and carpet was dirty! In need of serious refurbishment!
We requested a travel cot for our 8 month old which was fine, but we were given an old fleece blanket for it which was itchy and had clearly not been washed as it had food on it! Luckily we had our own blanket for our baby!
The bathroom was ok on first inspection but on a closer look the paint on the bath was flaking off and shower was useless! Also at night there were tiny insects crawling around the bath! (Yuk)
We used the swimming pool which was lovely and warm and the changing rooms seemed to have been newly refurbished! This was the only part of the hotel I would recommend!
Breakfast was average!
All and all pretty terrible! Will not be back!!!

Arrived at the hotel to find there were no lights to guide you. Probably just as well given the state of the place. It looked like an old prison, which had been decorated to look like ... An old prison! The rough walls were green, as was the ceiling.

The rooms looked like they hasn't been decorated in years and the loo handle came off in my hand.

The restaurant was fine and the meal was very cheap (£10 for a bottle of NZ Sauvignon Blanc so can't really complain) though the main meal did taste like it had just come out of the freezer.

The staff were very friendly though.

Stayed for 7 nights on a golf trip with family and found the rooms clean and well maintained.
The front desk crew was very knowledgeable about the areas and most helpful. Restaurant was clean and the staff were very friendly. Food was good. Breakfast buffet was great!

Room Tip: Stayed on the 6th floor. Rooms were great!

Stayed here with 72 others for a weekend dance event...rooms well enough equipped and clean...corridor paintworks are migraine inducing....apparently they were the work of some colour blind designer..floor 6 is a lurid shade of orangish red (including the cieling!!). The restaurant food was adequate, however the service was abysmal...seated at 6 pm, order taken at 6.05, starter served at 6.45 (it was a salad, not hot food that needed cooking or anything complex...a small salad, heaven knows why it took 45 minutes to arrive)...main courses were grim and were not served till 7.30....did not bother with a sweet had lost appetite by 7.31.

The function suite ...oh dear, dull, shabby and lifeless. Parking...loads of it...if you don't mind parking on muddy grass. The spa, great pool, freshly decorated changing area...lockers..oh oh, missing doors, handles, locks.

The hotel and it's decor are a bit of a patchwork, some of it is very pleasant and some of it is not....and that pretty much sums up the staff too. Similarly the view of the Clyde is interrupted by pylons and punctuated with warehouse style storage...so if you are hoping for a fantastic view to take your mind of the sullen staff, disasterous food and murderous paint schemes...think again.

Location wise, this hotel is NOT close to the airport, local bus transport is a joke and the hotel transfer service runs once per hour...so too bad if your flight time does not fit with the schedule.

This hotel is okay for a night stay before travelling but it has terrible return transfer policy I
phoned from inside airport and was told ten minutes at stand B5 was first in queue waited about 15 mins minibus arrived at B7 and took passangers that were behind us in queue first when I tried to get on the bus was told he would not take me to erskine as normandy was closer when we got on minibus after second return he tookthe other waiting passangers to normandy first again then decided to take us after that to erskine He lied about being told about us waiting and about turning of his phone. We were over one hour before we got in our car that is only a 15 minute drive away @ 12.15am in the cold not a good return and will never use this hotel again

I had a great experience with this hotel from the minute I walked in the door to have a look around with a view to having my wedding there. Nothing was too much bother for all staff concerned. We booked the date that same day and the excellent service continued through the months leading up to the wedding day itself. On the wedding day, I felt relaxed as the staff had done everything asked of them. The food was amazing, I've had no complaints from any of my guests and I even had a bouncy castle in a different room for the kids to play on while the adults enjoyed themselves on the dancefloor at the reception. We and a number of our guests stayed overnight and the room was comfortable and clean and the view from the room over the River Clyde was stunning. I have no hesitation on recommending this Hotel to others for any celebration. Thank you so much to all the staff for making our special day even more special.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view ofer the Clyde
