Travel Blogs from Glasgow
An early start as we had a 5 hour drive to Kilsyth to visit Stephen's grandmother's home town. A little village that is on the outskirts of Glasgow. It would have been a quite isolated when Grandma Roy lived there. Had a lovely lunch at the Scarecrow pub (grandma Roy would never have done that) and wandered the town. Didn't take long as it is very …

Started the Dumfries and Galloway drive by heading towards Ayr.
It was a short drive into Glasgow. In Glasgow, we took at 4 mile walk through the city. We started at George Square and made our way towards the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. This was the one museum I had really wanted to see so I was very disappointed when we were turned away at the front doors because the Queen was viewing the museum. We …
... fun stuff of an airport the time went by really quickly. The flight was packed but thankfully no one took the third seat in our aisle meaning I got to look out the window without trying to look past some one. I really enjoy seeing the world from above.
It was a smooth flight and we landed in Reykjavik right on schedule.

Historical Traveler Reviews Marks Hotel Glasgow
Marks Hotel is a newly renovated property, due for completion late August. When I stayed the week before completion, the restaurant was closed, and the breakfast limited to a juice, danish, sugary muesli bar & apple delivered to your door in the morning. Although the rates were "reduced" to reflect this (they were still not cheap), I think they will have to work a bit harder once finished if they lift the rates. For instance while the bed was comfortable, and the duvet feather, they were unable to supply a feather pillow. The throw rug was Designers' Guild and the wall paper and cushions bold and attractive so money has been spent on the interior. However toiletries are restricted to a supermarket brand in a dispenser by the shower & sink, there are no good quality individual bottles. There is no mini-bar or fridge in the room, though a kettle, hairdryer & iron are supplied.
Not bad but could be better
Stayed here for one night in June, clean hotel, Beds are very very comfy. Rooms in hotel look like they have been designed by laurence Lowellyn Bowen - a little much for some people. Must agree with coments about room service for a city hotel I'm amased their is no room service for when you get back from a night on the town. Restaurant was also closed for refurbisment which I wasn't advised when booking. I travel on business and dont want to go walking the street for dinner. Overall a resonable hotel, stayed in better, stayed in worse. Nothing exciting really.
Ich habe ein Wochenende mit Einkaufen und Ausgehen in Glasgow verbracht.
Wir hatten ein Doppel- und ein Einzelbett, sowie ein ausziehbares Sofa auf unserem Zimmer und da wir nur zu dritt waren, gab es noch genügend Platz. Das Zimmer würde sich sehr für eine kleine Familie eignen und hat nur 120 Euro pro Nacht gekostet.
Das Hotel hat eine tolle Lage, nur 10 Minuten vom Hauptbahnhof gelegen, man konnte zu Fuß zu den Geschäften laufen und ca. 5 Minuten entfernt gab es ein richtig schönes Kino.
Die Angestellten waren sehr nett zu uns.
Les chambres neuves sont très agréables
J'ai séjourné dans cet hôtel les 18 et 19 mai. J'étais déjà venu quand c'était encore l'hôtel Bewleys. Les chambres rénovées valent vraiment la visite : très modernes, spacieuses et idéalement situées.
Le personnel est très agréable et aimable, d'autant que certaines parties de l'hôtel sont en pleines rénovations similaires.
J'ai hâte de revenir quand l'hôtel sera terminé, il vaut vraiment la visite.
Stayed here for a weekend shopping and going out in Glasgow.
We had double, single and sofa bed in our room, and with 3 of us there was still plenty of room. This room would be really good for someone with a small family and it was only £89 per night.
The hotel is in a great location, only 10 mins from the train station, walking distance from the shops, and 5 mins from a nice cinema.
The staff were also really nice to us.
New Bedrooms are great
Stayed in this Hotel 18th and 19th May. Previously stayed here when it was Bewleys Hotel. The newly refurbished bedrooms are definately worth a vist. Very Modern, spacious and in an ideal location. Staff are great and very pleasant even particularly whilst other areas of the Hotel are being upgraded to a similar style. Can,t wait to return when the Hotel is finished, will definately be worth a visit
My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel as we had a night out in Glasgow. The front of the hotel looks amazing but inside is horrible. The wallpaper in the hall ways has bedroom was very over powering. We were in room 302 and the heat was unbeleivable even with the windows open. Our room had a double and a single in it and very cramped. The bathroom was however very clean and modern.
Mi novio y yo hace poco tiempo que pasamos una noche en el hotel Bewley de Glasgow. Cuando llegamos el personal se mostró muy agradable y servicial. No fuimos ni al bar ni al restaurante pero las partes del hotel que sí vimos tenían un aspecto limpio y ordenado. Nuestra habitación era muy bonita y era bastante espaciosa. La única desventaja que se me ocurre eran las vistas puesto que en nuestro caso la habitación daba a un callejón trasero, pero no nos importó. En general, disfruté de mi estancia de una noche en el Bewleys y se lo recomendaría a otras personas que vayan a viajar a Glasgow. Está junto a la principal zona comercial y además su precio es uno de los más baratos que encontramos.
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Bewley's hotel in Glasgow on an over-night. On arrival the staff were very pleasant and helpful. We didn't go into the bar or restaurant but the parts of the hotel we did see, seemed clean and tidy. Our room was very nice and it was quite spacious. The only disadvantage I can think of was the view, we looked onto a back alley, however that didn't bother us. Overall I enjoyed my over-night at Bewleys and I would recommend it to other people who are travelling to Glasgow. It's just off the main shopping area and was actually one of the cheapest hotels we priced!!
Just returned from a stay at Bewleys, Glasgow for a friends 30th birthday. We were 7 girls all looking for a night out on the town. My friend booked direct with the hotel and asked for a high floor. This we got as soon as we checked in. We needed extra pillows and rang reception , in less than 5 minutes we had extra pillows. We then realised that we only had 2 sets of towels and there were 3 of us in the room. We rang reception and again within 5 minutes the towels had arrived.
