      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.

      ... to burst into flames. The Bird That Never Flew This commemorates a wild robin which was tamed by St Serf and which was accidentally killed. St Mungo was blamed for the death but he is said to have taken the dead bird, prayed over it and it was restored to life. The Fish That Never Swam The coat of arms always shows the fish with a ring held in its mouth. This is because a King of Strathclyde had given his wife a ring as a present. But the Queen gave it ...

      ... menu in my room are about the same as in Aussie ie 9 GBP for an omelette, steak 21 GBP, a glass of NZ wine 8.70 GBP so when you take into account the exchange rates it is quite expensive. I found some places in the neighbourhood that have lunch for 5 GBP and 2 course dinner for 10 GBP so will check those out at some point.

      Walking around the streets is going to be a good way to see the sites I think
