Hey everybody! We left our hotel at like 8:10 this morning and once we got to Victoria Station to catch the tube over to the other station for our train to Glasgow, my dad remembered that he left the passports in the safe at the hotel. So, he then had to literally run back (about 4 …
We arose this morning in Edinburgh, had a lovely breakfast, and bid the Capital Residences farewell. We put our packs on our backs, took the bus downtown and walked the last few blocks to the train station. We bought our tickets and headed west to Glasgow, a short 50 minute trip. We arrived at Queen's station in Glasgow, perhaps a block and a half …
... We piled into the cave and there was only enough room to be laying down on your stomach, no possibility of even trying to sit up or anything of that nature. So we continued on and went through another passage way, literally like crawling/slithering/climbing the entire way... (during some points, it was frustrating being as tall as I am) and then we reached the next obstacle where you had to go HEAD FIRST into a hole, get half your body through and THEN attempt to get your ...
... Nevis range freshly covered in snow as we came into Fort William. We popped into the supermarket to get lunch and train snacks (all the supermarkets here do sandwich meal deals - sandwich, drink and chips). We popped into Mc Donald's for some hot chocolates and claimed our free drink with our collector card (we really are turning into budget backpackers!!). The train ride to Glasgow was long but spectacular, snow covered mountains surrounded us, snow falling, ...
... we had trouble booking accommodation. A wander into town along Sauchiehall Street some beautiful buildings scattered throughout but have to say Glasgow wasn't raising my pulse. Phoned the family where I've been working to say I am leaving for Aussie. Phew good to have that done. Found the rail station booked out tickets to Belfast. On the way back we took the scenic Kelvingrove Park to discover the University which sat ...

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.
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.
