"Airplanes have more comfortable beds!"
This hotel is past it's best. Their was stains on the floor, air conditioning not working and beds that made sleeping on the floor a viable option. We took a room upgrade for a river view and to be honest with you will skip that next time. Parking was a bonus but everything else is a let down. There is better with better value in Glasgow and ones that don't look as though someone has soiled the floor. Best recommendation is to afford if you want to have a good nights sleep.
By American standards, you might find this HGI a bit small/European style, but it was more than adequate for our stay. It was also an excellent value at about L75/night. Extremely convenient to the SECC/Armadillo and situated on the River Clyde so it's quite picturesque if your room faces that side of the building. Apart from the convention center/arenas, it's not centrally located but it's not a far walk to the train station or you can easily hail a taxi. There are a few restaurants within an easy walk in addition to the one in the hotel, which wasn't bad. The area seems to be developing with a new hotel going up across the street and an office building on the opposite side of the river.
Had afternoon tea today around 3.45pm. Having seen the poster of afternon tea on the wall outside the hotel I had been looking forward to it. We were welcomed by friendly staff. Had a nice glass of prosecco while we waited for the sandwiches and cakes to arrive. During this time we were commenting on how depressing it was in the restaurant as all the blinds were closed. We asked a staff member if she would open one and she did and it made a big difference. At least then there was a view! Apparently the sun had been shining in before hence them being closed. The offering was a little pathetic to be honest. The ham sandwich was on white bread which was not fresh, quite hard actually. We left most of it and transferred the ham to the cheese sandwich. The ham was cheap and flavourless and there was more butter than ham. The cheese sandwich on brown bread consisted of a tiny bit of grated cheese that mostly fell out. There was no salmon as shown on the poster. The tuna was fine. There were only two scones instead of 4, although they were very nice. The bakewell tart and the brownies were hard, in fact we left the brownies as they were past their best. The cheesecake was nice. We had read other reviews about it being very good so we were a bit disappointed. I was also expecting a pot of coffee but was asked which coffee I would like. I had a small cup of black coffee and it was good. I'm sure we could have had more if we had asked but no more coffee was offered. I didn't complain as the staff were very young and I felt that there wasn't much they could do about it. We didn't have a bad time, it was just not the standard we were expecting. Perhaps as it was late in the day everything was not a fresh as would be if you turn up earlier.
Stayed here on business, easy to get to, clean and decent value. I paid £77.59 for the night without breakfast so OK for what you get. It's a little like a posher premier inn But worth staying. The bar area is very small but has TV's in so at least you can watch football. They also have a small area that you can purchase wine/beer/sweets from and take it back to the room
"great for venues"
Great hotel for venues in the area. Can be pricey at times but my deal bought well in advance was good. Breakfast very good. Bar lively and social. Cobbles leading to disabled access are awkward to negotiate. Disabled room very well laid out.
