Just back from a shopping trip to Glasgow the hotel is in a really good location near the bus station and all the great shopping areas. Our room was on the 4th floor very nice comfy beds and quiet, with tea and coffee in room. Staff were friendly and helpful.
The included breakfast was a very nice start to the day.

My mum and I stayed here recently for a shopping trip. The hotel is ideally situated near to one of the shopping centres in the town, the Buchanan galleries.
Our room was on the 3rd floor and was really quiet. The room itself was lovely with plenty of room and was very clean. The bathroom was large too with good facilities.
We had bed and breakfast at the hotel. The breakfast was good. Plenty of choice with both hot and cold food and a variety of hot and cold drinks.
Great value for money!

Great location for city break (or stepping stone to explore highlands). Conveniently located close to a car park and within easy walk of metro busses etc. Staff friendly and helpful; free wifi an added bonus. Restaurants and bars close. Despite first floor room little road noise although metro could be heard first thing.

I have stayed in a few Holiday Inn Express hotels before and I have to say this one just wasn't up to the usual standard. The location is very central, a 5 minute walk from Queen Street train station. Be warned though that it's very near a police station which did mean very loud sirens waking me up twice during the night (not the hotels fault of course but worth mentioning!).The check in was quick and the staff were really polite. My very clean room was a decent enough size with tea&coffee, a small TV, very comfortable bed, hairdryer and shower gel / shampoo. The breakfast was free but the area was small and the selection limited. The last time I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express there was a great continental selection. This seems to have been replaced by a not terribly great looking cooked breakfast selection, a very limited fruit selection, a small choice of dry cereals, toast, bread rolls and croissants. There was no cold meats and the only cheese was some horrid looking squares in plastic. There was a good selection of cold and hot drinks.
Unfortunately my room was right next to the lift which was really noisy and quite annoying. I had checked in fairly late in the evening and after a long journey really couldn't face going back downstairs and asking to be moved so in fairness, that point possibly could have been solved. The taps in the sink were loose so I had to turn them several times to get any water at all. When I had my shower in the morning it quickly became apparent that the shower drain was at least partially blocked. I ended up standing in 2" of water which really wasn't very nice. Next time I'm in Glasgow I will try somewhere else.

Room Tip: Get one as far away from the lift as possible.

This is an excellent hotel to explore Glasgow. Only 1 min walk from bus station and right in the city centre. Check in was quick. Free wi fi in room with decent beds. It's a definitely value for money given the location. Staff was friendly and service was good. Would definitely stay here again.

Just had an over night stay (Sunday night) at this hotel with my daughter, in town for Christmas shopping. Arrived early morning, and although room wasn't available, they held our luggage in a secure toom near reception. Front desk staff very welcoming and informative.

The room was compact but spotlessly clean, beds comfortable and free tea and coffee a nice touch. Shower room great, with free Scottish Fine soaps toiletries. We didn't try the free breakfast as we had made other plans, but would certainly stay here again and recommend to anyone looking for a budget break.
