“Top notch”
Reviewed 21 January 2014 via mobile

Firstly hats off to Ian on night shift, stocky bloke, shaven head, I have a load of time for him, just take the time to talk to him. I am being so specific as these people don't come along often in someone's life, he is a gem. I have now stayed in this hotel 5 nights over the last 3 weeks, he truly committed to customer service. I also take my hat off to the gent whom checked me in on my first and second visit, forgot his name but will comment at a later stage. I go to Glasgow 2/3 times a month for 2/3 days on business, depending what needs doing. There is nothing negative to say about the hotel, but excellent service.....note that General Manager and IHG. Tip to customers.......adjacent to the left as you walk out of the hotel you can buy overnight parking from 6pm to 10am for 4.95 pounds from the hotel, any earlier or staying later will cost you 10.00 pounds call ahead to understand, all these can be bought from the hotel. I will also add if you want you can stop in front of the hotel, put your hazards on and get your parking ticket, otherwise park in that open car park, there is no attendant so you have time to get your parking voucher and get back, that is common I am told and have experienced. My car has not been messed with, just in case you have the same concerns, you can go around the block and pay NCP........you decide once you see the price. Pubs and restaurants are all in walking distance less than 1 minute and depending what you like up to a maximum of 15 mins. I mean like right next door. Also a Sainsbury local and great fish and chips/come GOOD fast food house is 5 mins away. I will be back in 2 weeks for 3 nights and highly recommend this hotel. Check my profile, I take reviewing seriously. Happy travels.

Stayed here with my partner TWICE towards the end of last year, each for one night, as we were seeing bands at both Barrowlands and The Hydro. This hotel is PERFECT for this purpose because its within walking distance from these venues.
The hotel itself was clean and tidy, and the bed was VERY comfortable! Great in room facilities!
The staff working in the hotel were very kind, friendly and chatty and made the experience very personal considering its a 'budget' hotel!
Breakfast was amazing also! Buffet style, and frequently replenished, and the staff working in the room were also lovely.
I'll definately be staying again!

We stayed here on our way to the Hebrides for a cycling holiday. Recently, the hotel has been in the news as it provided refreshment and hospitality for those trying to rescue survivors from the tragic helicopter crash into the bar immediately opposite the entrance to the hotel. We got a good rate (HI guarantee that booking through their website will always get the best rate available, and sometimes you can get a really good deal). Room was comfortable and well furnished, also in good decorative state. Front desk very helpful in finding a suitable place to eat. Unlike Travelodge or Premier Lodge, breakfast is included: scrambled egg a bit tired, but you can't really complain at £63 for a double room including breakfast in the city centre.

I love this hotel,it's perfect for foreign visitors to Glasgow as its 1 minute from Argyll street station and right next to river Clyde.The staff are probably the friendliest and most helpfull staff in Glasgow.Hotel is clean ,cheap,has coffee making facilities in room and free wi fi.I always stay here when in Glasgow and although the breakfast could probably improved on its still very good value.

Room Tip: All rooms are probably same but I prefer top floor as have always found it quiet.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Riverside mid December. We booked via Booking.com and paid £40, which is really good considering the dates and location, just a 5 minute walk away from the centre. Staff was helpful and polite, and we were very impressed with how smoothly everything run. The price includes wifi in the rooms for 2 devices as well as a breakfast buffet. Room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The only thing we thought could be improved was the quaility of the matress, but overall and in terms of value you cannot beat Holiday Inn Express Riverside!

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the parking area and it was nice and quiet.

Stayed here for less than 12 hours as we had an early flight in the morning. The polish girl on reception was so lovely and helpful and arranged our taxi for the next morning. The hotel is modern and room was a good size. Good walking distance to the shopping centres and restaurants. 20 pounds via taxi to the airport. Free wifi but it was very very slow. Basic but good breakfast included.

Reviewed 29 December 2013

I stay in a lot of holiday inn express hotels across the UK but of the older style (combined shower / toilet / bathroom with one door) this is the best by a long way.

Staff - very thoughtful by explaining the various parking options, asked how long id stay the next day to ensure I had the best value parking, so although the hotel doesnt have its own car park it has access / deals with a pay & display NCP in King Street right across the road for £4.95 till 10am next day or with Q-Park St Enoch for £6.50 for 24 hrs, so if your staying the longer than 10am stay in the Q-Park which is just around the corner and is a multi storey. But I stayed on a Saturday and the receptionist advised me to have a look for a space on the street as its free after 6pm every night but doesnt charge for parking at all on a sunday, so she saved me £4.95 minimum as there were plenty of free spaces around the outside of the King Street car park.

Room - Most expresses (esp the new style) seem to have very soft and lumpy mattresses, this hotel had much firmer and comfortable mattresses, very happy with the room and also how clean it was, large flatscreen tv decent range of channels

Location - right next to the main shopping area of Argyle Street with easy access from M8 / M77 / M74 motorways

Considering I only paid £33 which included breakfast I was very happy with the value and would certainly stay here again
