        • Couple

          Staff where very friendly, and really close to city centre

          The breakfast was not worth the money. To have a selection of sausages, beans, and scrambled eggs all squashed onto a what you might better describe as a side plate is not good enough. The 'great room' didn't have enough space to move confidently in without fearing that I might spill my hot drinks on someone, also I felt that I couldn't find a space to comfortably eat my breakfast. Premier Inn definately wins hands down for its breakfast and value for money.

          We were attending various events at Celtic Connections over 2 days. The Holiday Inn Express was ideally situated for this (one event finished at 3am and the short walk to the hotel was most welcome!). The check-inn was efficient and friendly, the room very clean and more spacious than we expected from a hotel in this price range. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety on offer at the included self-service breakfast buffet. All-in-all very good value for money.

          The bed was very comfortable.

          I thought that for the standard of the the breakfast was very poor. There was a very small selection in the cooked breakfasts, and hardly any choice in the cereals.

          It was very welcoming and helpful as soon as i entered the hotel. The room was ver;y clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very selective and tasty. Staff were very friendly.

          The only thing that bothered me was we wanted to hire a film to watch and it wasnt even a new film we were charged £8.50 I think that was unreasonable.

          I liked the location as we were going to the theatre ,and also it was more reasonably priced than other hotels .

          The rooms were small but as we didnt spend much time in them during the day .The room was very warm and when you opened the window it was quite noisy .
