I stayed here as part of a group of friends,some of whom had stayed in the hotel before. We were staying for a rugby match in Glasgow so a lot of other fans were staying here also.

I have stayed in this hotel numerous times, and cannot fault it. On this occasion, we stayed for one night on the 2nd of Jan. Check in was efficient, and the receptionist was extremely helpful with advising about parking (literally across the road, and £10-ish for 24 hours). The rooms are clean and stylishly furnished, and breakfast was plentiful with...

A friendly welcome on arrival and the phone call to the room after about 10 minutes of arrival to ensure everything was ok with the room is a nice touch. Not enough tea sugar milk but you can get more from reception. Room basic but clean and bed comfortable. The only negative is the a/c unit being right next to...

Glasgow has two Holiday Inn Expresses in the city centre; I was visiting the University of Strathclyde so picked this one as the more conveniently located of the two. It turned out to be ideal - a short and straightforward walk from the subway, and ten minutes or so to the university campus. For sightseeing it would be a good...
