“Fabulous hotel that ticks all the boxes for a Glasgow stay!”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

Overnighted here as had a business function to attend last night. Absolutely beautiful location overlooking the river, and lovely decor. Tastefully decorated in shades of turquoise and brown, and so fresh and clean, with all the amenities required. In room safe, frig, coffee, iron, hair dryer etc. Located ted close to the entertainment arenas too. The hotel has outside decking overlooking the river, so you can enjoy a drink or coffee in good weather. Cracking hotel, and definitely recommend it for a stay in Glasgow. Ticks all the boxes!

Room Tip: Overlooking the river!

Dear Ger0na

Thank you for such a positive review.

The outside area is now open for the summer and is a great place to enjoy a quality meal or drink on the riverside.

Kind Regards,
Brian

Ideal location for overnight stay if going to The Hydro/SECC/Convention. We stayed for one night as we were attending a concert at The Hydro, as I suspect the majority of the other guests were. Check-in uncomplicated, room small but standard and clean. Apple TV, same as previous review couldn't get remote on/off either, annoying. No instructions available in room, maybe maid error? In the morning at 9am, the maid just came in, no knock. Granted we didn't have the Do Not Disturb sign on but the courtesy of a knock first would be expected.
Bar service was slow and tables were left dirty. We didn't eat there as we heard several guests approaching the bar asking how much longer would their order would be as they had been waiting a lengthy time. Based on this we went across to The Rotunda to eat- has several restaurants/bars in one building directly opposite the hotel.
The hotel should have extra bar staff on to cope the returning residents from concerts as the queue extended out of the bar and across reception and it took over 30 mins to get a drink!
We only paid £69 for a double room so can't complain too much as the hotel rooms were clean and it was so convenient for The Hydro but wouldn't stay for more than a couple of nights, which is probably what this hotel's target market is.

Dear Nexthol

Thank you for your review.

All of our food is cooked fresh to order and demand can be high before concerts, we always recommend pre-booking a table in the restaurant and highlight this on the booking confirmation.

After events the maximum number of staff that can fit behind the bar are serving, I am sorry that you felt that this was not enough – we have previously put up extra bars in the lobby but found that the majority of guests preferred to wait for the main bar for a full selection of drinks.

Kind Regards,
Brian

Stayed last week at the Garden Hilton for Gary Barlow concert at the Hydro.
Have stayed before and as usual found the Hotel to be just right for a concert
The staff are so helpful and efficient and although busy can't do enough for you.
The only comment would be that the mini fridge is not very cold so ask for a bucket of ice.

Will always use this Hotel for future concerts!

Stayed at The Hilton Garden Inn Hotel on 05 April a Saturday night. Was greeted warmly at desk and checked in swiftly. Had a lovely double room with a view of the Squinty bridge. Bed was very comfy and room had lovely decor. Bathroom was filled with high quality toiletries We went to Justin Timberlakes concert in the Hydro. What a fab hotel for concert, just across the road. Thoroughly enjoyed concert and afterwards a couple of minutes to walk back. There was an ice machine next to reception which was utilised well. Next day when checking out, it was very busy, we had already paid so just handed key in. All in all been definitely the best hotel at the riverside. A must visit!! Great location for Hydro....

Room Tip: Room with a river view.

Great location for concerts etc at the Hydro or Clyde Auditorium. We got the tour bus to right outside the hotel. Science museum just a walk away over the squinty bridge. Wee supermarket just along the road. Check in really quick and staff very friendly. We were in room 125 on the first floor overlooking the road. Noise was not an issue at all, even after the concert when thousands of people were leaving both venues. Breakfast was very tasty after a great sleep in a very comfy bed. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean and I noticed there was also complimentary tea/coffee in reception to take away.

Room Tip: No noise even from a roadside room above the entrance. Good for people watching!

I was in Glasgow for a concert just for the weekend and this hotel has everything you need. The checking was fast and efficient and my room was tidy and had all the mod cons.
It was so close to the Hydro which was fantastic and there was a bus stop right outside the hotel. Even the red tour bus stop there which then took you anywhere in Glasgow a tourist would want to go.
I do like a soft bed so the bed was rather hard for me but this is more personal preference and I did not like the way I could not turn off the Apple TV by remote in bed. (This could have been user error)
All in all a pleasant stay for the weekend that fit my needs

Stayed in this hotel for 3nights and we really liked it and the location ,had a river view room and yes the rooms are not large but they do have everything you need but the plus side is they are very well appointed and very very clean the bathroom is also very nice. Loved the Apple TV and computer we walked along the river front into the centre maybe a 10 -15minute stroll much better way than going the other way and such a nice view. We found it to be very convenient for everything . The hotel breakfast was excellent and the bar friendly and fun.
All the staff were helpful and we would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: Book a river view room
