“Had a Great Time”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

Stayed Sunday 27th May for a concert at SECC with my daughter. Have stayed previously and was not disapointed this time. Reception staff very welcoming and obliging. Weather was beautiful so we were able to have dinner and breakfast outside in the sun. Made us feel as if we were abroad. My daughter used the gym on the Monday morning and was pleased with facilities. I love the chair in the bedroom, great for my back. Had a great stay everything was perfect. Had a river view which is great. All staff so pleasant. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am delighted that you enjoyed your recent stay.

Our outdoor patio and terrace offer fantastic views of the River Clyde and having the option to eat outdoors is certainly a benefit of staying here.

It doesn’t get much better than your stay being described as ‘perfect’.

Kind Regards
Brian

My friend got married here on Wednesday and when I say the day was perfect it certainly was because of the lovely staff excellent food and the ambience. Well done the Glasgow Hilton. The head waitor I think was Michael sorry if I got the name wrong but you were perfect!

Thank you for your review

Our riverside location is an excellent choice for holding weddings and I was relieved that the rain held off allowing you to have your drinks reception on the patio.

Kind Regards

Like all Hilton Hotels, no surprises there, but the first of the 'Garden Inn' variety I've experienced. Nice riverside location with the only decent outside tables for miles - great on a sunny spring day. No sign of an actual garden, not that handy for the downtown parts of Glasgow but very convenient for the Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre (SECC). Some good restaurants nearby or within 20 minutes walking distance, as the hotel restaurant is fairly standard fare. No room service breakfast either.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the river

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay.

I am glad that you found our hotel to be as expected from Hilton.

Hilton Garden Inn can be found in over 530 locations in the world, some of the facilities you will find throughout the brand are complimentary wifi, business centre, guest laundry and fitness centre.

The weather during your stay was fantastic and our riverside terrace certainly kept the staff busy!

Kind Regards

We decided to stay over in Glasgow at the last minute as we were attending a concert at the SECC which we knew was going to finish VERY late. I will admit that we usually stay in a Premier Inn on these sort of stop-overs, but it was nice to go somewhere else for a change. The staff were polite and friendly, and very helpful with the questions we had. The room itself was lovely – very fresh look about it, and spotless. Hubby saw the iMac in the room, and that was him more than happy! We had a river facing room, which was really nice with the weather being as warm as it was. The bathroom was a wee bit smaller than I thought it would be, but that was the only very, very minor negative about our stay and it certainly wouldn’t stop us from staying again. After we got back form the concert I can safely say it was the best night sleep I’ve had in a hotel. We never heard any noise from other guest that were staying there (which is unusual), and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Would recommend this hotel if you’re staying over before a concert, or even a shopping break.

This is the second time I have stayed here and it was just as good as the first time. Stayed here as we were going to a concert at the SECC, and found it really excellent. The service was very friendly and efficient, particularly in the outside area where we enjoyed dinner from the bar menu and cocktails in the scorching sun by the Clyde (Fabby as this doesn't happen alot in Scotland!!!)I had a room on the fourth floor and it has been recently refurbished. It was well equipped with an iMac computer with TV function, lovely comfortable bed though could have done with a ladder for getting in as it's rather high, more eldery/disabled people might have an issue with this, the bathroom is well equiped and has a good shower in it.

The only downside to staying here was that the last time we stayed we never had to pay £5.00 for parking, personnally we felt as though we had spent enough money in the hotel and shouldn't have had to pay for this also.

Room Tip: Would recomend the extra for a Clydeview room.

Stayed here as we were going to a concert at secc. Girl at check in was very friendly and we upgraded to a river view room. Room was very nice, clean and bright, great to have wifi and an iMac. Breakfast was lovely and staff friendly, best poached eggs I have ever had. I do think that parking should be free for guests though instead of charging 5 pounds whether you are a guest or not. Overall I would recommend this hotel.

Got this hotel room only for £47. Very close to SECC and about 20 mins walking distance (pleasant walk along river Clyde) to city center. Room was great, decent size, nice bathroom, all felt very new. Interesting feature was apple mac as TV in the room - this mean internet was available as well. Compared to my last hotel stay in Scotland (the Argyll Hotel in Ullapool, which was double the cost and none of the quality), I was very happy indeed. In fact, the only drawback was the £5 parking charge which was a bit steep this far out of town.

Room Tip: River view upgrade was £10 but as we were only there one night we didn't bother
