“Great location, long wait for food”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

I chose the Hilton Garden Inn because of location, it's right opposite the Hydro - a 2 minute walk away. Lovely modern, clean hotel and the reception staff were very friendly. The rooms are small but very very clean with apple mac computers/TV, fridge and free safe which is a lovely touch. We booked a meal at the hotels restaurant - pre theatre menu. The quality of food was excellent, however, we had a very long wait in between courses....45 minutes to be precise!. The waiting staff were good so I'm putting it down to a problem in the kitchen. The restaurant was busy but I would of expected them to be prepared given there was a concert on at The Hyrdo that weekend.
All the in all a lovely stay, great location and lovely food if you are prepared to wait. I will absolutely stay again.

Booked to see Top Gear Live and looked for a hotel close to the SEC Hydro. We were certainly not dissappointed with the Garden Inn Hilton in Glasgow. Very clean, fresh and new looking. Everything you needed in your room and very comfortable beds and pillow.

Only downside for us was that it was extremely busy and it felt like they had underestimated how busy it would be with Top Gear live as lunch service was extremely slow taking over 45 minutes to get our sandwiches and chips. On the plus side though dinner in the restaurant that evening was superb.

Would highly recommend for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: River view rooms available. Have only marked down on the service due to the lunch service

This was the first visit to this hotel but left feeling that I would visit again. Friendly staff, efficient service and lovely location by the river. The hotel is close to the city centre so great for shopping or clubing. Good standard rooms and excellent breakfast.

We used the Hilton Garden Inn for a family celebration. Enjoyed a very nice lunch in a private room. The staff, including the manager, were very pleasant and attentive and made sure we had a great day, We would highly recommend this hotel.

Just had a one night stay at this Hotel while attending concert at the Hydro and would thoroughly recommend. Rooms and very stylish, well equipped and comfortable with plenty wardrobe space and nice bathroom with walk-in shower. Well located for all events at the SECC/Hydro complex but also convenient to walk in to town on a nice day. Nice restaurant overlooking River and generally very airy and pleasant place to stay. Bar lounge area a bit small and crowded but otherwise all good

Room Tip: Depends - overlooking the river is a pleasant and calming outlook - but on the other side the Hydro...

Dear Askjamie

Thank you for your review.

Our location beside the Hydro makes us the perfect choice to stay when attending a concert.

The bar can get busy after events however with additional seating offered in the restaurant the majority of guests manage to get a seat.

Kind Regards,
Brian
