    What a disppointment!


    Room was small, bed equally so and uncomfortable! Bathroom tiny. Poor lighting, shabby and out-dated decor. Filthy bedspread and stained carpet. 'Bar' smaller than the one in a train carriage! Very disappointing for a 4* hotel. When I complained, I was told that our room was due for a total refurbishment very soon. That's helpful then...

    Great all round hotel


    I stayed here very recently and have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Room was good with complimentary hot drinks and biscuits (always a bonus!). Bathroom was ok but water from the shower did keep soaking the floor when used. Very central location, great breakfast and polite staff. Will definitely stay here again!



    Just recently enjoyed a wicked stay at Holiday Inn - fab location, great for socialising and shopping, great staff



    Excellent hotel - definately recommend this for location, value for money and service!!!

    Keep up the good work!

    Good value in the centre of the city


    Good points. Excellent location for bars, restaurants, shopping. The restaurant and bar have a nice atmosphere. Clean and good value.

    Bad points. Small room compared with others in this chain. Below par service in restaurant. We had to pay over £10 for 24hrs parking over the road.

    Would I stay again? Yes if the price was right. We paid £60 for mid week with breakfast booked on the chains web site.

    Don't stay here!!


    We usually find Holiday Inn a very acceptable hotel chain so we booked this particular hotel with some confidence.

    Terribly disappointed. Room was tiny, dark and depressing. The TV was mounted on the corner of the wall/ceiling and only responded to the remote when the latter was placed right up against it.

    Keep awake until the early hours by the noise of drunken holigans in the street outside.

    Wrote a negative report in the hotel assessment system but received no reply from the hotel.

    Take my advice, don't stay here.



    stayed at this hotel in July 04 We were given a room on forth floor it was tiny and had a horrible smell of smoke. Housekeeping knocked before 9am don't think I will be staying there again. Will try Langs next time.

    Space & Music is Glasgow


    We booked one of their Penthouse suites, boy do you get value for money. Dinner, Breakfast, loads of space, it was great.

    The staff are different from other hotels I have stayed at, they actually talk to you and smile which is unusual.

    The food was great, french but still great. We also took in a concert across the road which was fun.

    It was our first visit to Glasgow, I would thoroughly recommed this place.



    Room rate was 175 So thought it would be nice. Mistake, room very small Window did not fit right air blowing in. Very noisy, bed had lumps could not sleep. Room not kept up, just nasty.

    Ideally situated


    Saw basic room....tiny,dark and depressing....decided to upgrade to Executive room immediately. Lovely room,tiny bathroom,small bath. £80 for Fri night,then cost increased to £100 for both Sat and Sun. By the way,try not to be ill during your stay.....if you want to be left alone,it's well nigh impossible....Housekeeping really want to service your room at their earliest opportunity! Room service food is really good.

    Scotland - We Have Arrived!

    A travel blog entry by minaco on Jul 25, 2015


    Our first day in Scotland has been pretty low key. After the overnight flight and crossing four timezones, we are feeling the effects of jet lag creeping in. We tried to fight it off all day by keeping busy.

    After arriving at our hotel, the Holiday Inn Express Theatreland this morning, we had to leave our bags in storage as our room was not yet ready for check in. Keep in mind we did arrive at 9:30 am, and check in really isn't until later ...

    ... a good amount of time with this online siri-like digital math wizz, that can help walk me through some of my online math assignments - due every Saturday at 3am. And yes that 3am mark does make all the difference sometimes. Similar to school in the U.S., procrastination is a ever-present force. However, instead of procrastinating by riding powder as I would in Utah, I'm procrastinating by riding trains and planes.

    ... get a return than it would have for one way, because we could get a group ticket. So after we got our tickets, we went for a walk down to the Grassmarket, where we went in for a beer at the White Hart Inn, which is apparently Edinburgh's oldest pub, and established in 1516! It was pretty cool in there! I don't know if it still looks how it did originally, but they had cool quotes written over the beams on the roof, and tankards hung up along them too, which looked cool. After a ...

    ... We are all people, after all.  We want to live, and be well, and care for our children.  The focus on children in the ceremony was important too because (and feel free to disagree with me here) the British think about their children a lot.  That's why they have such excellent children's literature, I think.  In America we are still largely focused on adults getting to achieve all that they can and getting to have children when it is convenient for the parents.  If we ...
