TripAdvisor reviewers have plenty of good things to say about The Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel. As these excerpts from longer reviews show:
‘Very comfortable and friendly. Had a lovely four day stay at this hotel in June, very comfortable, spacious room. Lovely bathroom, again very spacious… Good selection of breakfast items and good quality… Very pleasant staff everywhere. There was also lovely gym and pool facilities which we put to good use including sauna and steam room… Would highly recommend… We also had a beautiful view of the Clyde from our room and it was very peaceful and relaxing.’
This guest stayed at The Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel in order to go to gigs at The Hydro:
‘Stayed here for two nights… as was going to The SSE Hydro on Friday and Saturday. It’s a bit out the way from the city centre but was cheaper than the hotels next to The Hydro and was able to park for free with plenty of spaces outside the hotel. Rooms were nice, hotel was nice and breakfast buffet was good. We just got a taxi both nights. From reception to The Hydro was about 20 mins in a taxi. We used the gym and the hotel pool… free to guests and were both good.’
A relaxing break doesn’t need to feature a lot of travel.
