Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RomanHoliday Great value, great breakfast!
This hotel was a last-minute choice for an impromptu stay in Glasgow, the last stop on a month-long holiday. But for the economical price it vastly exceeded my expectations. The breakfast generous and varied, far from the cold-buns-and-weak-tea I expected. The staff were helpful and friendly (apart from one cold, unwelcoming woman on the reception desk, ironically) and the location was excellent.

I stayed at Holiday Express Glasgow Riverside on an exceptionally hot day, so the ice dispenser in the lobby was really welcome, and we made good use of it. Apart from that, the rooms was quiet and clean, the bed comfortable and the staff really polite and friendly. Recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Engelsman return visit even better than before...
Had found this Hotel perfectly adequate on a previous visit and even better this time around.
Had a quiet room at the end of the corridor, with all amenities working perfectly.
Staff were friendly and efficient, recognised my previous stay and were helpful in every regard.
Would have loved to stay here during the commonwealth games!

Excellent value. One point off for food as my beloved missed her bacon. Had seen reviews that said staff were friendly and will confirm those.

Now I've stayed at many a hotel, but this is the first one that has offered me a 'grab-and-go' breakfast when I didn't have time for a sit down. Excellent.
Plus the staff were above the norm - the reception chap was friendly and offered good appropriate advice and the girl running the bar in the evening was friendly and funny - and she even laughed at my jokes. Now that's good service!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Convenient for shops and train to Hydro
Stayed here two nights while at an Eagles concert in the Hydro. It was very convenient for the train station in Argyle Street where we took a train out to the Hydro in the evening which took about 6 minutes and cost £1.70 each. The breakfast was excellent and the staff were constantly checking to see if anything was needing topped up. The room was quiet, quieter than the Holiday Inn in Theatreland (beside the Buchannan bus station) and it had air conditioning which the Theatreland one didn't.

Never having been to Glasgow my wife and I spent four days using this hotel as our base. Very happy with our choice of Holiday Inn Express. The Hotel is close to the City Centre, and we were able to walk to the main shopping and restaurant areas.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dajfiel A bit worn around the edges
This hotel is ok, but it does seem a bit worn
My main gripe was that my toilet roll holder was incapable of staying in the holder.
Then my colleague makes the same complaint about his room, so there's a good chance that more rooms would have this annoyance...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mo1104 Great Location
The staff were very welcoming from the minute we walked in and very helpful with room allocation and information about the city. The breakfast - although described as continental - included hot food too. The room was comfortable - although being on the 1st floor by the road - was a little noisy from the passing traffic - however we slept well in the comfortable beds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chapster628 Great staff, but parking not great.
Just spent one night there, but would stay again if in Glasgow. The staff was great, the room was good, and the bar/restaurant was comfortable. Our only issue was with the location relative to parking. A parking lot is nearby, but one has to unload luggage on a busy street before taking the car to the lot. Fortunately, the staff runs out to help.

Reception staff helpful and friendly.
Had a end room over looking the river Clyde

Breakfast good as always ( bacon would be a good addition though)
Great location and only 2 minute walk to shops etc.
Would stay again and would recommend it

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Very Comfortable
Room was very comfortable and set at a nice warm temperature. Our room was at the beginning of the corridor next to the lifts so there was a lot of noise coming and going in the early morning but I guess that can't really be helped and would get that anywhere.
Setting that aside I would recommend stay here again and couldn't fault the rooms or service from staff.

Quite reluctant to review this Holiday Inn as it is excellent value and ideally placed for when we come to Glasgow for Concerts. Friendly and helpful staff. Room and bathroom clean. Bed comfortable and warm.
Plenty good eating places near by and 15 minutes from

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Compo in Caithness Safe!
During my stay at the Glasgow Riverside Holiday Express hotel the fire alarm went off at 0400hrs (4AM). The hotel was very full but all guests found the way out to the assembly point with no difficulty. The fire brigade had two fire engines at the scene before the last guest was out - that's what I call a good service! After the all clear was given we all went back to our rooms. A written explanation was received first thing in the morning - an alarm had been activated in a guest's room.
After this experience I can say that I shall always feel safe in this hotel.
This was my second visit to this hotel. I wlll stay again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by stranger53 unclean stay
Stayed there for a business week and found the house keeping to be extremely poor. The room was not cleaned properly not even a single day and the bed was just tidy up properly. To the extreme I found the towels that were stained wet which I dropped under the sink for replacing were folded and placed again for reuse. This was just not acceptable for a brand name like HI. I am a gold member and have been staying in the HI hotels and never had the kind of experience like this where the stained towels are been kept for reuse. height of uncleanliness. extremely disappointed when I walked and wanted to use a towel and found the stained towels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Azraq Over night stop
The room was excellent in every way, and the bed was the most comfortable ever. Unfortunately the music during the evening around the bar and reception area was too loud; we did stop off to a drink on returning after going out for a meal but conversation was too difficult, so we left and went to our room.
