“Nice Hotel in nice area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2007

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night in June 2007, hotel is in a nice area (in a park) and convinently has a Toby Carvery opposite which is very useful for eating at night time. The lobby was nice and had computers which you could use (for a fee) and the reception staff were friendly and answered any questions, The breakfast area was nice and there was also a lounge area with a TV if you wanted to have a drink there (you could order drinks from reception 24 hours a day!), The rooms were nice and included a desk, TV and Internet service (which I could not get to work unfortunatley), The room we had included 1 double bed and 1 sofa bed which I found to be uncomfortable but adequate. The bathroom was also nice and modern. Overall I would reccommend this hotel for people looking to visit Glasgow (it isnt too far away)

The four of us (2 adults, 2 children) stayed two nights at this hotel on a short leisure trip. The room we stayed in was pretty small, even compared to other Express by Holiday Inn hotels, but nevertheless it was clean and tidy.

If you have small children like us you'll love the location - right next to the Amazonia theme park and a leisure centre with a soft-play area in! For business and leisure travellers alike, the location is terrific being just off the M74 at junction 5. It's quite a central location with easy access to Glasgow, East Kilbride, Hamilton etc.

If you're looking for efficient and economical but don't fancy slumming it at a Travelodge, you shouldn't be dissapointed here.

I stayed at the Strathclyde park Holiday Inn Express on 12th September. Check-in was efficient but inpersonal - why are so many receptionists unable to smile or make eye contact when greeting guests?
My room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was also clean and well equipped.
I thought the breakfast buffet was very good: toast, pastries, cereals, fruit & yoghurts. This is something that fully justifies the extra cost of Holiday Inn Express rooms over Travel Inn or Travelodge where breakfast is charged seperately.
An unremakable stay but I would return if in the area.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2006

We arrived with a pre-paid voucher, but the staff refused to believe I had already been charged for this room and twice tried to charge us again. We booked a family room, but our two teenagers ended up in a double sofa bed, instead of two singles as we had requested. We had to ask for pillows and quilts for them, as their beds had not been made up and these took over an hour to arrive. The continential breakfast was really basic, cheap yoghurts and only toast or cereal. The manageress who we eventually spoke to about the double charging on our bill was lovely and did sort it out for us - but we were not impressed with the rest of the staff or the quality of the hotel

I stayed here on a Sunday night because the hotels in Glasgow were fully booked due to some medical conference.
To be fair the rooms were clean and pleasant but the heating was on full blast all night making it impossible to sleep without the window fully open which then subjected me to the boy racers who were using the car park across the street as a race track and subjecting the area to their "bangin chunes" till 3 am.
Despite phoning reception and begging them to at least turn the heating off they didn`t. It took me till 3-3.30am to finally fall into an exhausted sleep.
Truly unpleasant, if not entirely their fault.

My family and I stayed here over the final weekend of the British Open golf championship. The place was pretty full, but we still enjoyed our time here. Our room on the ground-floor was fine for our needs. Initially there was no TV remote-control, but the girl on reception soon found us one. The buffet breakfast was varied and well-stocked. All members of staff we encountered were very friendly and keen to help.
I've stayed here before and I'd happily stay here again.
