A fantastic hotel for a weekend in the city. Just a stone's throw from St Enoch Centre and Argyle Street. But still quiet at night. The hotel has a 24 hr bar perfect for a last one at the end of the night. Parking is accross the street and only £10 for 24 hours (you can beat that anywhere in...

Despite a few nice touches (differing firmness of pillows, clever bathroom/toilet door system, free ice/microwave access), there were plenty of reminders that it's a pretty basic hotel. One tap was cosmetically damaged, the loo roll holder didn't quite work, the air con gurgled all night (despite being off) the cleaning staff walked in without knocking (and rehung a dirty towel)...

A clean little hotel near the River Clyde in Glasgow. The doublebed room is spacious, the twinbed rooms are not so spacious. Neat, clean and 1 block from the Hop-on-hop-off bus stop, a large mall, the central train depot an a good Italian Restaurant, Al Dente. Breakfast is included as is free wi-fi.

We have stayed here several times, and each time we have an excellent experience. The location of the hotel is great - very central, and right on the River Clyde. You are just a short walk away from Argyll St and the City Centre, and if you are attending an event at the SECC or Hydro, you can just walk...

Stayed here for two nights. I thought I had booked a double but was given a twin room. I mentioned it to reception and they offered to move me the following day. This was done without drama. Nice breakfast, great location. Will be staying again. Typical holiday inn express and you get what you pay for. Staff were lovely.

This is an excellent hotel, in a central location in Glasgow. Very clean, quiet and spacious room plus a very good breakfast. Staff are also very friendly. Central Glasgow attractions are a short walking distance. Only issue is no parking on site, but an NCP secure car park is a short distance away - a bit pricy though.
