Reviewed 21 May 2013

This is the second time we have stayed here in recent months and once again, we were not disappointed. The staff are attentive, courteous and welcoming at all times, with a ready smile. The location is superb, with the theatres and cinemas within sight of the hotel and the shops are just a couple of minutes walk away. With a car park across the road (not the hotel's), this makes things very convenient. The rooms are very good,very clean, with very comfortable beds. Food was excellent, with plenty of choice from the buffet breakfast and a varied menu at the restaurant.
Atmosphere really good in the bar and restaurant, with a lot of theatre goers meeting here before and after shows. Highly recommended and we can't wait to come back soon.

Room Tip: On both recent occasions we have had a good room. There may be upgrades available so don't forge...

Booked the day before on with a online agent, who couldn't give us their (for an extra fee)advertised upgrade, on arrival Receptionist Shona happily provided us with a penthouse room for a reasonable fee in addition to our DBB rate. The room was very acceptable and we even remembered not to add to much bubble bath to the spa bath.
Any other requests were met quickly by Receptionist Katherine, all the hotel staff we came across were pleasant, relaxed & efficient. The meal was a 3 course table d' hote served in the busy La Bonne Auberge, service was again pleasant, relaxed, & efficient the food was to a very high standard, which also summarised the whole restaurant supervised by Sean.
We regularly have short stays in hotels around Scotland and have paid a lot more for lesser service and standards and are glad to be able to post a positive review.

Room Tip: Ask the staff.

Stayed here on business trip to Glasgow. The hotel would have been rated higher but on arrival I looked out of the window to find several gas bottles scattered on roof directly outside. They were cleared up immediately I reported it to reception BUT they shouldn't have been there in the first place. The person on reception told me that they were empty and left by contractors but some still had the plastic seal on the taps (got pictures!) so.......Holiday Inn management please check that contractors are doing their job correctly. The rest of the stay at the hotel was okay but the room was smaller than other Holiday Inn's I have stayed in and the room was a bit noisy so only average.

Dear Barry,

Thank you for your recent review of the hotel. I was surprised to read that you found the hotel on average with other Holiday Inns, as you can see from most of the reviews on this site that we usually rate above par in terms of service and product. Thank you for bringing the bottles to our attention, I was glad to read that we got them cleared up immediately.

I do hope we have the chance to welcome you back in the future.

Kind regards,

We decided to stay at the Holiday Inn Glasgow Theatreland for a weekend away at the beginning of May. When we checked in, we were delighted that the hotel were offering an upgrade to a penthouse suite with separate living room, complimentary drinks and spa bath for £20/night. We decided to take up this offer to give us something a bit more special as it was our 1st wedding anniversary. Pros: the location can't be faulted; extremely handy for both the bus and rail stations and right in the heart of all the shops with Cineworld across the road, the staff are efficient and the hotel is very nicely furnished. Cons: Our sleep was disturbed by an unidentifiable intermittent buzzing noise in the room (I was up several times in the night trying to locate it but frustratingly couldn't find the source), the penthouse suites have sloping ceilings which my husband constantly banged his head on, the dinner, bed & breakfast option booked through Hotel Connexions included a two course 'Pre Fix' menu - this is a restricted menu of 3 or 4 starters, mains and desserts which remains the same every night - disappointing and I wouldn't chose this option again. One last little gripe - I ordered pancakes and maple syrup on the final morning and when they came, they were burnt. The waitress made no comment, simply placed the plate in front of me and walked off. She later removed the plate again without comment and scraped it into the bin. I was very surprised that firstly the food was put out this way and secondly that I wasn't offered a replacement. Despite this, I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your recent review of your stay in one of our suites. Thank you for rating us 4 stars even though you had a few problems. All 3 of our suites are located at the top of the hotel and indeed have a slight sloping roof. The buzzing noise has never been brought to our attention, though I have passed your comments to our maintenance team that will locate and silence this. We do offer a dinner bed and breakfast rate which is of our Menu Prix Fixe. If there were items on the Ala Carte Menu that you would prefer, this can be taken at a supplement.

I am glad that you would choose the hotel again and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Kind regards,


Alan Taylor

Stayed here a single night on business.
Location is great, check in was efficient and friendly and my room; though not huge was fine for a city centre property

Everything in the room was clean, working and comfortable. The bed was far too soft for my liking but do appreciate that is very much a question of taste.

Breakfast the following morning was plentiful and tasty.

Would happily stay here again

If coming in from Glasgow airport - catch the shuttle bus to the bus station - hotel is less than 5 mins walk from there!!
