This morning we had an extremely early start. We were up at 4.15am and out the door by 20 to 5 in the taxi that arrived early. Our flight left Zurich at 7am for Heathrow where we had a stopover for an hour and a half. We then flew from London to Glasgow arriving at our hotel by about 12.30pm. Our room wasn't ready at that point so we went for a …
... was about to attempt this... Anyways, I started to go down the narrow part and halfway down I was seriously debating turning around but I was brave and believed in myself and went down. After getting through the hole, you had to navigate around an area of water and some more rocks to finally reach the opening. I'd say I was pretty happy to be "free" once I got out.
We then went to our next site... this time getting into the cave you had to be completely laying down, on ...
... some rum. As I handed it over to her, she was frustrated because everyone ahead of her in line hadn't followed directions and were taking twice as long as they should. She took a huge gulp of diet coke and was, as you can tell, surprised.
We had an early morning flight to Glasgow. After collecting our bags, Mom was in the bathroom, and the pleasant customs lady yelled at me and told me to leave customs. I ...
... Scotland - Belgium game (Scotland lost 2-0) There were kilts galore and on the night the smell of wet wool was all around. The trains were delayed by the wet weather (or the same issue that had held us up earlier in the day). Then we walked back to Ian's in the heavy rain trying to remember what the streets looked like in the day time as in the rain and the dark everything looked very different - we went in a few circles but got there in the end!!
... tour was pretty nice, they took us through the whole distilling and storing procedure. It was of course followed by some samples afterwards. I bought some "wee dram" glasses (small little glasses for sipping on whisky) which I thought were cool. Heading back on the bus we made our way into town and had a walk through the esplanade. After a seriously large coffee with the boys and some shopping for the night dinner I left the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews ABode Glasgow
After my girlfriend forcing my arm to go to a Bon Jovi concert, I decided that at least I may have some respite by booking a nice hotel and restaurant.
Fellow UK travellers:
We stayed for a couple of nights midweek and were really impressed with the hotel. The location is brilliant, just off Sauchiehall street so really handy for shops, bars and restaurants. Rooms well decorated, a little on the small side maybe but makes up for it in attention to detail. The handmade beds were the comfiest I have ever slept on and as I was seven months pregnant at the time this was much appreciated!! Staff on reception were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast a bit overpriced for what it was. Overall a really good hotel which I would recommend.
In response to the guest who wrote a scathing review (stayed February as birthday celebration), i would say that if you wanted a so-called 'getaway out of town', why on earth did you stay in a city centre based property?? This hotel was fantastic, located within a stones throw from everything Glasgow has to offer. Rooms where fresh and comfortable with beds to die for (advised hand crafted vi-sprung beds on enquiry with the ever-so-friendly reception team). Breakfast was great too, and yes we had a small wait, but expected on a weekend when everyone takes advantage of an extra 2hours in bed and turns up at the same time! Would visit again.
Not bad but not as good as it used to be
We first stayed here back in 2001 when it was known as the Art House and it was terrific and the restaurant down-stairs excellent. Try the full-Scottish and you didn't have to eat for the rest of the day! The lay-out is very nice, with a large old centrally placed elevator giving access to the rooms, which were also very nice. I stayed here on business earlier this year and it seemed a bit more shabby, although obviously in the throes of refurbishement; certainly the food in the restaurant was no-where near as good, my door-key did not work and I left with the impression that it had gone down-hill slightly, which was a shame. Still, the staff were excellent.
Loved my Stay!
I have just spent the weekend at the new Abode Hotel in Glasgow formally the Arthouse Hotel, i stayed in one of the new and improved Enviable Suites it was fresh and funky great for a weekend away with friends or family. The hotel is right in the heart of Glasgow city centre great for nights out.
I do recommend the hotel to everyone all the staff will make you feel at home its fantastic.
This Hotel is on a par for noise,with Langs Hotel,Glasgow. No sleep due to the fact you could hear every noise from outside and the night club below, belting out 70's music and constant stream of Taxi's or buses pulling up outside. Rooms were terribly small, I have experienced better rooms at a Travlelodge.Location is Central to Glasgow and Ideal for all the clubs and restaurants available. Breakfast was a disaster, we had to wait nearly 1hr to get served, due to the amount of people waiting to be seated and when it did arrive it was hardly what I would call adequate. Coffee was diluted and breakfast bearly palatable. I would give this Hotel a miss, especially when they Informed us the charge for Carparking, would be £10 for a Saturday into Sunday charge. We used the Sauchiehall street, adjacent to Abode. Upon speaking to the car park representatives, we were informed it would be £3.80 for a 24hr stay, £6.80 to the Hotel's coffers, thank you very much. Is not a good service as far as I am concerned, total waste and spoiled a birthday celebration. Be warned, do not go to this Hotel.

Overall I would say this is probably the best hotel we have ever stayed in on a weekend break and the staff where fantastic. The fine dining restaurant is superb value, and excellent quality of food. Recommend visiting ABode Glasgow!!
Had to move room twice ....
First room - noise from club downstairs - we got no sleep. The whole room shook with a constant banging noise.
Second Room - Door would not lock - staff assured us they would fix it then they left our door unlocked all day with all our belongings in.
Third room - Door would not open - Repeatedly changed keycards and noise from front street kept us awake - but could not stand to pack and move again.
A nightmare trip ...
