Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Glasgow City Centre Theatreland

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.

... Don who is amusing even when he isn't trying to be because of the Scottish accent and the words that go hand in hand with that. Don does like to have a talk, as a guide should and a solid part of our trip has been learning the history of the places we were visiting. The first stop off was in Dunkeld to see the old chapel there, half of which is in use and half of which is in ruins. This stop was followed by a lunch stop in Avemaria (or something of the sort) and ...

... inducing cliff rises in front of us, and from the top a thin waterfall descends to a rocky pool, where the spray generates a permanent rainbow. I take my shoes off and have a paddle. Cos, y'know, you have to . :) it's lovely and refreshing, the wind created by the falling water blows freshwater spray in your fresh. We take lots of pics (mark takes some awesome vertical panos) and them start the walk back. It's not even lunchtime yet! Back at camp we catch ...

... stories that Mum recalls from her mother and grandmother, and most of these Agnes McFadyen (Fisher) wrote down for my daughter Fiona when she was at primary school. She also told some of these stories in a novel she wrote in 1961 which is based around growing up at Mt Ross and living in Middlemarch (which she called Camden).

This morning I braved the train system and went to Motherwell to the North Larnakshire Heritage Centre. The quick purchase of a pair of sandals ...

... a distance. I loved one of the gargoyles. But the most impressive was the interior of the cathedral. One of the stained glass windows was pretty fantastic with Adam and Eve and the story of creation from Genesis. The second was the wood ceiling. I’m attaching the photos.

We had dinner at The Butterfly and The Pig….a whimsical restaurant…..well the food wasn’t as whimsical as the descriptions for their food. ...
