    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.

It was a beautiful ride and the little B&B cottages (Ducks Bay Area) by the lakeshore with the fabulous gardens made me self-promise to come back one day and stay. We even had entertainment in the form of the Loch Ness Monster (otherwise presenting himself as a ...

    ... to stick William Wallace's claymore in the ground it would probably reach over my eye level. Needless to say these weapons took extreme strength to lift, but when hefted could cause some serious trouble.

    The most wonderful part of the monument was certainly the view from the top. Stirling lies along the River Forth, which divides the Scottish Highlands from the Lowlands. The tower offered an unobstructed 360 degree view - ...

    ... in Glasgow are very similar and are made of darker materials than those in Australia. We drove to see the places where Scott's family used to live, including his grandparents. Both him and my bro have very vivd memories of these places however they both said that their recollections of the places are somewhat different seeing them again after so long. For example something they thought was so much bigger now looks quite small to how they remember it.

    ... and looked for a way to get to Glasgow Airport. Taxi, sounds like a good idea......mmmmmm..... Get this - five adults, one baby, four large suit cases, 6 backpacks and a pram. All in the one regular sized London taxi cabs. We sort of felt we were going for the Guinness Book of World records. But wedged in as we were we managed to make our way to the Airport and as the driver opened the door we all fell out onto the road breathing a sigh of relief. Hire ...

    ... to recommend SE Asia as the most exciting, we'd say that the best bit of the trip was meeting those very same people, both locals and fellow travelers, without whom it would have been a lot less interesting.

    And at last, to sleep in our own bed again, not to have to pack up our rucksack tomorrow or to pay the room bill ....... at least not until next time that is!
