... We were glad to have stayed near Edinburgh and not Glasgow, although I'm sure it's a great city with lots to offer.
Our flight from Glasgow to Reykjavik was set to leave around 1:55pm, which meant we had a bit of time to kill at the airport but having a quick lunch, getting checked-in, through security and all ...
... the history better than these tourist castles that have people standing in costume and the interiors renovated to try and show you the history. I wouldn't say it was a waste of time but definitely prefer seeing castle ruins.
It was getting late into the afternoon, so after the castle we made the short drive over to the Wallace Monument. Kara stayed in the car as she had no desire to climb to the top of the monument. I missed the minibus shuttle ...
... complimentary breakfast boxes, all of which we would have had to pay for in coach, and a table that sits between us. That's where I am right now, writing this on the train! Haha, it's pretty cool actually. The countryside is beautiful and you get to see a lot of things like animals, town gardens, train car looking boats, tunnels, highways, waterways, trees, grass, dead grass, RV storage lots, tall trees, other trains going against ...

The planetarium was amazing, it was about the night sky although not Glasgow as it was cloudy so in the forest about an hour away where the sky was clear. It was quite wierd though as we were all quite disoreintated as it was the northern hemisphere sky so of course there wasn't any southern cross, we had no idea what we were looking at. However it was really interesting to listen to and watch and learn. I'm now going to ...

Ňran Mór: A Play, a Pie and a Pint
Ňran Mór is a pub… wait for it… in a church. There are actually a lot of churches that have been converted into other things. Lots are restaurants or pubs, one is Glasgow is a climbing gym, and one in Aberdeen is called “Soul”, and has a pub, a club, and a casino. Ňran Mór is on my walk to school, just after I exit ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Buchanan Hotel Glasgow
Nice city shame about the hotel!
I do not like writing negative things about places but if I am honest, I would NEVER stay here again. Firstly, on arrival I was put in a room with floor boards that moved and electrics that must have been installed by a blind man! After the receptionist phoned me to say there was a problem with the room (did she know to start with) I was moved to another room which was slightly better. However, regardless of the room you have you will both hear and feel the tube trains as the hotel is smack bag over the tube line. Don't plan on sleeping as if the tubes don't keep you awake, the noise from the street will as its in a busy high street.
One final point that put me off was finding a pest control box behind the wardrobe.
I WOULD RECOMMEND YOU THINK AGAIN BEFORE STAYING HERE!
Having read the reviews for the Buchanan we were very worried as we had booked with two other best friends to spend our first Christmas away in 40 years. But our worries were completely unfounded.
First class food
I stayed in the hotel at new year excellent location and first class meals similar to the standard of food expected in four star delux establishments. My overall impression of the hotel was that the staff try so hard to exceed customer expectations. The rooms were very clean & comfortable. Looking foward to seeing you all next time round.
Had a superb 2 night stay in this hotel, it is so handy for the shops being smack bang in the city centre. Bedroom was very clean and had everything I needed including bags of hot water. The breakfast was also great - a huge selection of both hot & cold dishes. Would go back anytime. The staff always had a smile on their faces.
Had the misfortune to stay at this hotel a few weeks ago. Thought it was going to be great due to location. It was for 5 minutes! Realisation set in when we tried to open windows to get some air. Only one window opened but had to be propped up by the Gideon bible, (sorry)!
I read the first four reviews here with great sadness; I'm genuinely sorry others had such a bad time here, and had I read these reviews before booking my travel I wouldn't have stayed there at all. Fortunately, I didn't, and I actually had an experience quite contrary to the other posters. Yes the rooms are small, but that's true of pretty much every hotel in Europe. It was clean, comfortable and reasonably well-appointed. It wasn't a suite at the Savoy, but then it wasn't intended to be, either.
Who needs sleep anyway!!!
I stayed here with my daughter - thankfully for only one night, otherwise we would have lost the will to live!
It was dirty, smelly, noisy (you name it, it was it!)
There were 4 beds in our room with a spacious 10cm gap between each one.
There was no remote for the TV, but a train horn sounding regularly to keep us awake!
The sink in the bathroom didn't drain properly at all (lovely).
All in all it was a lesson in everything a hotel should not be. My daughter is currently receiving counselling after the experience, I am hoping the nightmares will stop soon!
Do not stay at this place unless you are studying horrible hotels!
I was very concerned about staying in this hotel after reading the two previous reviews. However, my husband and I were going to the British Open and all the other hotels in the area were booked. We stayed there July 17-18, 2004. The only reason I went back for a second night was because we couldn't find another hotel. This hotel was the only low point in our otherwise wonderful vacation. It is very dingy. The beds are lumpy and the bathrooms are very old. There is a very loud bar next door that plays music until all hours of the morning and because it is located on a pedestrian mall the people are out partying and yelling until 2-3 in the morning. We had to keep our windows open because we were on the fourth floor and it is very warm up there. The only positive thing I can say about the hotel is that it is in a good location to catch the train. It is just a few minutes walk to Glasgow Central and Glasgow Queen Street Stations.
This hotel overbooked my reservation & was totally uninterested in my plight.
With Glasgow very busy they suggested a run down b&b with no -ensuite, no facilities miles out of town.
They didn't care where I slept as long as I got out of their hotel.
Avoid at all costs
Awful place. First, it is located on a pedestrian mall, so if you drive you have to park on the street and not remotely close. Bear that in mind if you have lots of luggage that you don't want to leave in the car overnight! Second, even though we called ahead to ensure that we had a double bed, we ended up in a room with three twins. That was after the first room they gave us that already had someone staying in it! Third, despite how nice it looks on the website/brochure, it was REALLY shabby/grimey - could easily be a flophouse. Fourth, it's one door down from a very loud 24 hour karaoke bar with bright neon signs!
