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.

... and you can see Dumbarton Castle from here as well. This was a very comfortable place to live in the 1500's. They even had a Dovecot outside where the pigeons roosted and they could have an unlimited supply of squab and eggs.

Our next castle is Bothwell Castle in Paisley. We arrive here too late for entry, but we take a walk around the grounds and go for a walk down by the Clyde River. This is part of a walking trail that goes for miles along the river. The Scot's ...

... I had pre-booked a car park right beside the castle, the venue for the tattoo. The booking allowed us to go in and out of the park as much as we'd like and proved to be well worth having. The guy gave us our access card and a bag of goodies, Fudge, a foam car, a mag on Glasgow, soap, two pens, notepad and a key ring! We took a good look around Princes St while mum had her hair done and after lunch we went back to the car and went for a drive for a couple of ...

Glasgow & Edinburgh, Scotland!

... called the “Royal Mile,” which is lined with all sorts of shops, cafes and restaurants, beautiful cathedrals and tearooms and goes straight up the hill to Edinburgh Castle at the other end. When I was 14, I toured Edinburgh Castle on the day that J.K. Rowling held a press conference there shortly after one of her Harry Potter books came out. I remember seeing her signing autographs and getting in her black car and being driven off. ...

... care who you are! :-)

This is the first time I have actually spent any time in Scotland and I found it very interesting. The Scot's are famous for being extremely cheap and also for consuming huge quantities of whiskey. I didn't see either of these traits during this visit. My perception of Glasgow is of a clean and safe city with pretty good mass transit at least in the downtown area. Prices ...

Fraser's (ever amusing) take on Asia

As we watched Melbourne fade to black from our cushty emergency exit seats on our Asia bound flight, Sam and I got chatting to the passenger beside us, who overheard our discussion of whether or not the fact that Judy Murray was on the plane meant that Andy was somewhere up front amongst the glitterati. He seemed to have an inexplicable knowledge of the Murray camp travel plans and told us Andy had left on a flight via Singapore earlier in the evening – shortly ...
