    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.

    Risking the Restrictions

    So as you know I made the bold decision to pack light and so went for a 30L backpack with plenty of pockets, a water bladder compartment, an air back system and a waterproof cover. This decision was partly the result of the luggage restrictions on the flight which, because of my inability to tell how much things weigh, I grossly underestimated.

    The restrictions were:
    Glasgow to Cancun with Thomas Cook - 20kg hold and 6kg hand.

    Cancun to Mexico City - ...

    From here we continued to St Andrews and had a brief walk on the golf course before the weather turned pretty miserable. In a pub at St Andrews we had another beer and a plate with a few snacky things including crumbed sausage (yum!). We then had a Empire ...

    ... to be busy on the weekends and further into July. I had planned to visit lots of museums and the city center, but there is SO much to see. I did get to the city center and two malls - quite a difference from all the history surrounding the city. Also spent an afternoon wandering around the Neocropolis - a giant cemetery. I was surprised at the recent dates on the tombstones. I didn't see anything later than about 1840 or so. Today, I had planned to start my walk along ...

    A few months ago a lady named Bernadette Lawson contacted me via this here blog and asked me if i'd like to contribute to a book she was putting together. Her idea was a collection of stories from people who were either in the midst of or helped after Cyclone Yasi.

    Her book "The True Spirit of Cyclone Yasi" as she puts it :

    This morning I went by the Glasgow City Hall building, which was supposed to have a public tour of its fabulous interior. I got there a bit early so walked around the square for a bit - lots of statues of people who have been important in the history of Scotland. Loved the one of Queen Victoria sidesaddle on horseback. On the outside of City Hall was also a plaque with standard measures on it so that should anyone be in doubt they ...
