Need to choose an airport hotel when flying in or out of Glasgow, or want to stay somewhere outside the busy city? Look no further than the Holiday Inn Glasgow Airport.
From an airport perspective, you don’t get much closer to the arrival area or departure lounge, as it’s just a 2-minute walk between Glasgow Airport and the hotel.
Our girl Rachel McAlley visited the Holiday Inn Glasgow Airport for an overnight stay during a long distance drive from the Scottish Highlands to the North Yorkshire Moors. It was the perfect stop off!
Holiday Inn Glasgow Airport has onsite parking, so you can park safely overnight knowing that your vehicle is sited in a secure location. The hotel also offers offsite parking if your vehicle needs to be there for a few days or more. We only needed to stay for one-night, and therefore used the onsite parking outside the front doors of the hotel.
Lobby & Restaurant
The reception and lobby are large, open spaces filled with comfy chairs to relax in throughout your stay. Check-in was quick and easy, and the reception team offered advice on where to go in Glasgow if we wanted a cinema or to do some shopping. We spent time chilling in the lobby and noticed that the area was fresh and new, filled with raised seating booths, armchairs, and bright art. This was a really great place to hang out and people watch!
Our room was an Executive Room with two separate double bedrooms, two bathrooms, plus a decent dressing and wardrobe area. There were tea and coffee amenities in each room and a fridge in one, plus each room offered a TV. Looking out the windows we could see the planes taxi around the runway, which was great fun to watch. It’s the little things in life that make me happy!
Hotel & Executive Room
Dinner was served at Traders, the hotel restaurant and drinks served in the Abbotsinch Bar. There was a great atmosphere in the bar with everyone watching sport on the big screen TV’s. And, the restaurant was busy all night with frequent flyers, regular guests, and people stopping off between holiday destinations. There was a buzz about the hotel because the COP26 conference was only days away and guests were discussing climate change in Scotland and beyond.
We enjoyed watching the world go by from our restaurant table whilst eating dinner. The chicken wings, steak and risotto were just what we needed to end our day, by enjoying a hearty plate of food.
After a bottle of Prosecco (it was my birthday) we didn’t have the energy to leave the hotel and visit Glasgow itself, so we just hung out in the bar and then ventured to our room for the night.
We had a great night’s sleep and in the morning we were heading off on our next adventure. A quick breakfast of toast and eggs and it was time to check out and leave the Holiday Inn Glasgow Airport until next time! Thank you for having us, we had a wonderful stay.
