    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.

The building also held so many chapels that I lost track of the number...some very small and lined up one next to the other with no real barrier in between, each with their own communion table. The most impressive of these was in the basement level of the church, stark white arched walls with red accents and stained glass windows. The church ...

    ... so much into our lives, leaving little space for deep thought and listening to God. I'm sure creating a special physical space would encourage and enhance opportunities to just "be" with God. I feel encouraged to look at the possibility of creating "stations of contemplation" prior to Christmas, at church. So, on to Ambleside we head. We experienced some beautiful scenery as we travelled along Loch Lomond. ...

    ... off - so I wasn't completely exhausted arriving back in Edinburgh. My mum and dad were waiting for us and they both commented we don't look that bad! However, climbing into a warm clean bed in my own house was the best feeling in the world. We have been back for a few days and it feels fantastic being home. I am taking tablets prescribed by my doctor here at home and they should do the job in properly killing the parasite. I have an appointment with the doctor next week and ...

    ... I dropped my bag off in the room, phoned Pippa to let her know that I had got here and then opened the windows and quickly departed down to the "Mint & Lime" bar downstairs at the hostel for a chilli and a pint of Strongbow (what else?). There was live music on in the bar which was pretty good and helped accompany me to writing this blog. His first song was a Jimbo, Dave and Pete classic!!!! See the short 30 sec or so clip video attached. Early to bed, and early to ...

    ... was a teacher named John MacLean. It was very interesting for me to see speeches being delivered by men in kilts. But that was only the beginning. Donna was soon surrounded by old friends, so I wandered off alone. It reminded me in many ways of the Bearspaw Fair, the local agricultural show in my home town of Cochrane. Yet, there were many drastic differences! The most noticeable being the rock blasted hills with the sparsely scattered stone homes in the background. The stone walls ...
