My two friends and I stayed in the family room with 4 single beds (which was huge) and were very happy with our stay. We had a great big window with a view of the street. The bathroom tiles were SUPER slippery though, almost wiped out a few times!

I had a very pleasant 3 night stay at this lovely hotel. The rooms are comfortable, breakfast is good and the staff is very friendly. WiFi unfortunately didn't work in my room (full signal but my phone didn't connect), worked very well in the breakfast area though. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
"Nice hotel with a very short walk to SECC & Hydro"
We chose to stay at the Crowne Plaza as we were going to a concert in the Hydro. The location is fantastic for this as it's probably about 3 minutes walk.
The foyer of the hotel is welcoming with the large revolving door, the bar on the left. The location of the reception could be improved as it faces in the opposite direction to the entrance and in my view creates a bottleneck at the lifts they look into.
The staff were friendly enough, nothing overly good or bad to report.
One extremely negative point of the hotel would be the lifts and stairs. There are three lifts serving the hotel, which are extremely slow and this causes problem when large volumes of guest want to use them (like after a concert), we opted to take the stairs which aren't marked so we made our way to the only stairs we could see taking us to the mezzanine, we walked through it and got to the lifts and a door with a sign for staff only (or to that effect). We about turned and went back down to the crowded reception area and asked were the stairs were, we were pointed back to where we had just come from, I question this as the door is clearly marked for staff, I was told to disregard this and go through it. I was just very lucky when I went In that a staff member had just finished there shift and were able to point me in the right direction. The corridor is clearly just for staff as it has all the usual customer centric instruction for the staff over the walls.
Rooms good, bit musty. Bed way to soft.
"Conveniently located in a trendy part of Glasgow."
The hotel is quaint and has an old world charm. Yes the beds are a bit lumpy and the furniture a little worn but in a charming way. This hotel was what I expect when booking into a small non-chain property. Parking was no problem for us because we checked in on a Saturday evening and checked-out on Sunday morning so there was ample parking in front of the building at no charge. Parking is likely more of an issue during the week.
We were supposed to have a single room that would sleep four; however, because of some plumbing problem we were upgraded at no charge to a two room apartment.
"Great staff, good location, great value for money!"
Late check-in wasn't a problem, late check-out neither. Gentlemam on reception very friendly and efficient. On side parking free over night and than £2 for half a day. Considering location less than mile from centre, great deal. Our room was clean, reasonable size with all we could possibly need. At £48 for two of us including breakfast, now that's what I call value for money. Will we return? Sure we will!
The north west of Glasgow is home to some of Scotland's most affluent suburbs, with many of the postcodes soaked in elegance. Bishopbriggs provides an impressive range of grand Victorian villas, as well as Huntersville Village, which is a unique mix of locally owned and operated shops and services, including an art gallery, art classes, music classes, and a café.
