Hotel only opened from April 2019, everything very modern, spotless and comfortable with touch controls for your comfort in your room. Lounge/bar and restaurant, modern, comfortable and inviting but please take the huge tv out of the restaurant...football on for the 2 hrs we sat having our meal, ok for bar/lounge but not restaurant. Not an extensive menu, but ok, service a bit slow but not a lot of staff on duty. Continental and cooked breakfast on offer in the morning but be quick as hot food can end up being a bit rubbery under a hot light. Staff friendly and presentable. Good value for a ‘get away ‘ Situated right beside shopping centre. With a little improvement would rate from good to excellent.

This Ramada hotel is fresh and clean, although its external appearance looks old and tired. The hotel is not in Glasgow and it is around 50 mins train ride from Glasgow Central Station in East Kilbride, a sub-urban outside Glasgow city. There was a 15 mins walk from the train station to the hotel (inside a shopping mall), but you can also catch buses serving local areas and Glasgow next to the Shopping Mall.

Located strategically within a Shopping Mall, with a range of entertainment, leisure, cinema, ice rink, shopping and eateries outlets (KFC, Fish & Chips, Weatherspoon, Nandos, etc), it is quite convenient since you can have a range of restaurants within the complex. The shops however shut quite early in the evening and the mall became dessert after closure. The hotel has lift directly accessible from the shopping mall and the reception is on the top floor. We stayed in a family room, which was clean and nicely decorated, with tea and coffee making facilities. The sofa bed and double bed were equally comfortable, but there was some noise from the air conditioning at night. Breakfast was extra (£10 per person), but we had ours in Tim Horton in the Mall for just £2.49 per person.

We paid just over £31 for a family room for a night, to celebrate special family occasion and did not disappointed. I would recommend anyone to stay in this Ramada, if you don't need to be in the centre of Glasgow and don't mind a mind of travel by train/ bus.

Currently staying here in east kilbride, stayed a few times previously and its been fine. However absolutely awful experience this time. Parking token is given on arrival as you enter the car park, however up and down every time you need to leave the hotel car park you have to get to get the token updated at reception. Beware as we thought we'd lost it and hotel staff just said you'll have to go to the management in the town centre and be charged £10. Thank god we found itt. Really unhelpful staff when asking about the following issues You have to pre request your room to be cleaned such as to clean room, empty bins, change towels etc...but only after the 3rd night, How embarrassing to go have to ask a member of staff at reception for toilet paper, they wanted us to go locate the member of staff and get them off her. Thought we'd try the bar, paid cash then told no change, offered to pay by card only to be told no we couldn't as it had gone through as cash and they couldn't change it. Eventually given about £3.00 back in 20 pences.
Hotel lifts and corridors had food remnants over them. On a plus note the room was relatively clean

Dined here on a Groupon deal of a Steak dinner for two with a glass of wine each. First impressions were good as the restaurant is modern and spotlessly clean. However i would classify this as more of a hotel dining room than a restaurant. The whole place lacks any sort of atmosphere.

The waitress quickly established how we liked our steaks cooked but warned that it may be a while as the kitchen was very busy. Not sure whom they were preparing food for as the place was virtually empty. We ordered a bottle of wine over and above the glass each that was due with our deal. The glasses of wine arrived quickly and we were informed that the bottle ordered had been put in the fridge to chill. After about 20 minutes our glasses were empty, there was no sign of food and we had to catch another waitress to have her bring the wine at least. It arrived and was cool but not chilled.

The steaks eventually arrived and the first thing my wife always does is cut the end off to check that it is well done. It was pink so had to go back. My steak was fine but the dining experience was ruined as it took another 15 minutes to return my wife's steak and by that time i had finished mine. So in effect we ate on our own. Strangely enough the piece of steak my wife had cut off didn't come back with the returned meal so she actually only had about 3/4's of a steak.

We were never asked if we required desserts of more drinks so we settled the bill and left.

On the face of it the Groupon deal is very good value but the dining experience doesn't match up.

Doubt we would return even on another deal.

Went here for afternoon tea and was hugely disappointed with it.
It was meant to be worth £83.90 for afternoon tea for 4 people but Groupon was selling it for £38 .
10 tiny quarters of bread with 4 egg mayonnaise, 4 cheese and onion spread and 2 cheese and tomato,4 tiny lemon drizzle slices ,4 tiny Danish pasties and 4 ok sized scones with jam and cream.
We had soft drinks instead of prosecco and a tea or coffee .
We were really disappointed with the quantity of the food for 4 people.
We would have been better getting the steak meal deal on groupon as that was cheaper and included a glass of wine.
All the 3 adults in party agreed it was not good value for money.

Having dined here previously and enjoyed it,we thought it would be a nice way to spend a Monday evening,returning on a two course Groupon deal.
I chose a run of the mill draught cider to be informed it was out of stock. On ordering my starter of chicken wings, I was told they were not available. We decided to order mains and desserts instead.
After 20 minutes,a soup starter came despite cancelling it,I decided to take it to save confusing the staff. After a 45 minute wait,our mains arrived,bearing in mind there were only four tables occupied,one Thai Red curry was fine however the BBQ Ranch burger was a shocker,the brioche Ben was replaced with a dried out breakfast roll,the one large onion ring was discoloured,on sending the dish back,I ordered bog standard fish and chips. Whilst one of us tucked into our main course,I duly received mine some time later,part of the fish was undercooked,as in soggy batter,the small basket of chips were undercooked,hard to understand that one.
We were given one free dessert to in some way compensate for what had gone on before,however again not all choices were available.
Our waiter was tipped,more out of sympathy than service,but it will definitely be our last time here,a bit of a shambles it would be fair to say.
On leaving the restaurant,we bumped into the diners who were seated next to us,they had the same experience as us.
You won’t survive in the town with this type of dining experience,too many restaurants have raised their game and are at a high standard now.
Poor show all round.

Bought the ‘dinner for two’ groupon voucher and visited on Friday night. Plenty of parking but took a little while to get in the door (secure entry) as reception must have been busy, but ok as inside. First impression was bright, airy, clean and good atmosphere. We were seated straight away and waiter introduced himself and gave us menus. Good choice on the menu but we just opted for the bbq burger & chicken burger - both arrived in good time and were really tasty. We then ordered the apple pie & custard - the best we’ve had in a long time. Restaurant was quite busy but no problem on the service, waiters very pleasant and happy to help. Point to note is if you’re driving remember to have the car park token validated at reception on the way out. Definitely recommend and we’ll go back.

The hotel is located within the main indoor shopping centre in East Kilbride Town Centre and is well connected for restaurants, bar, a cinema and for shopping.

The hotel occupies the top floors of a twelve-story building with the reception on the twelfth floor, the hotel is well signposted, and I found the hotel with ease (do not follow the route on google maps).

The welcome was nice and professional; all in all, the service received during the stay was excellent.

The room totally exceeded my expectations; the spacious room contained a wonderful king-sized bed topped with excellent duvet and pillows encased in crisp, clean white linen. Also in the room was two comfortable chairs, an excellent desk at which to work and use the powerful free Wi-Fi also you can watch the large flatscreen television.

The roomy bathroom had an impressive powerful shower, fluffy towels completed the excellent experience.

Highly recommended that you stay here.
