“Smart and friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Stayed here while on business during Commonwealth Games. It was the perfect base. Room was on the river side right beside the bridge. Small but perfectly clean with everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. Restaurant food was good and the service excellent. Perfect end to the working day was a drink on the terrace overlooking the river. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a riverside room. Colleagues on the road side had some noise from the pub across the road.

Dear ScottishLady38

Thank you for such a positive review.

Our newly refurbished riverside terrace is a great location to unwind after a hard day at work!

Kind Regards,
Brian

Visiting relatives and had free time, so we went by train to Glasgow. You walk out of train station catch the tour bus and it drops you off at stop 13 in front of the Garden Inn. Nice quiet area not far in 1/2 hour walking distance to downtown or as I did purchased two day pass on the tour bus. LOOK FOR THE SIGN which I attached.
Great breakfast served which is extra, but worth it. I am a Hilton Member and booked on-line in USA.Tip ask for room facing the river.
Do Not miss the Riverside Museum just down the street.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms facing the river

Dear Matusla

Thank you for your review and taking the time to upload some photos.

Our central location on the sightseeing bus network allows for easy access to both the shopping district and west-end areas of Glasgow.

I do agree that the Riverside Museum for transport is a must visit when staying with us.

Kind Regards,
Brian

This hotel really doesn't seem budget at all - its beautiful inside and the room was very luxurious. Our hotel room looked out onto the Clyde and the Squinty Bridge.
Staff were all very friendly and helpful and gave us advice on how to get to the railway station, ordering a taxi for us which arrived faster than we could get downstairs for!
The room had an iMac which was very modern but the television reception wasn't as good as a normal television.
Overall, highly recommended - great for access to the SCC but a little far out from the city centre unless using a taxi.

Have lost count the number of times stayed at this hotel.

Always stay here if we are coming down for a concert or football. Very good location. 2 min walk to SECC or Hydro, 20min walk to Ibrox and a 15min walk to The Quay. Prob about half hour walk into town or you can get a taxi.

Wide choice at the buffet breakfast. Decent selection at supper time too. There is a wee pantry that sells crisps, sweets, juice/alcohol, ice cream and ready meals if required.

Yes the rooms are more on the cramped side esp the showerroom but it has everything you need and how much time do you actually spend in your room anyways.

Will always return to this hotel when visiting Glasgow which is atleast 4 times a year.

My husband & I stayed here on an overnight stay as we were going to a concert at The Hydro which is a 1 minute walk from the hotel. It's an ideal location with no noisy traffic going past. Staff were very friendly, room was clean and tidy. We also ate in the restaurant and had a lovely meal which had plenty choice. Breakfast was excellent with a huge choice in the buffet. We have already booked for another stay.
