Saw some gorgeous scenery today through the mountains and on the cruise along the Loch Lamond and tonight's stop Glasgow - which the guide is not raving about! Do we have no time to look around a your in the morn is about all. We were getting sick of Scottish food - havent had many good meals! so we we went to a lovely Thai restaurant for tea!
Today we drove from the Highlands to Glasgow. Stopped off at Fort William and had a photo stop at Ben Nevis and Loch Lomond. Got to watch a 'Loch' canal at work (pity can't remember where it was) which was very interesting. Spent a lot of time on the bus today. Was really annoyed we didn't get to stop at Cullendon battlefield. But they annoyingly …
... I have ever eaten in my life, the restaurant itself was an exciting experience as you got to watch the chef cook your food right in front of you. The chefs were entertainers as well - jugging knives, creative massive fireballs on the stoves and flicking food into the open mouths of patrons. It was a lovely last dinner in Glasgow!
In the morning we got on the train and made our way homeward to Durham. But that, my dear readers, is a story for another day.
... have so much history. But then there's the smaller ones...the old churches that have been converted into pubs (I like their priorities!!), and the cobblestone alleys. There's just so much here!! And bless their Clockwork Orange...the worlds cutest and smallest subway. Very very cute!! And did I mention curry? Oooooohhhhhhh maaaaaaan...it's good!! Sooooooo gooooooood!! Droolworthy!! And with a twist on the norm as well...take the haggis pakoras as an example. Nuff said?!! ;) Actually ...
I never sleep particularly well when I have an early wake-up, and today was no exception, so I was already awake when my watch alarm went at 4:30am. For once I was pleased that the bathroom is at the other end of our place, so that I could shower without disturbing Mandi.
Claire picked me up from outside 91 Hepburn Gardens in her little Smart Car and 5:05am and we were at Dav's in Leuchars about 15 minutes later. The Smart is an interesting drive. It is quite high with hard seats ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Campanile Glasgow
Glasgow was our first destination during a 3-week trip to Scotland and it definitely left us with a good impression for the start! It may be a little hard to find, if it's your first trip to glasgow, but the location is good, being about the same distance from the West End as from the city centre. (And it's nice to walk a little after a lovely dinner, anyways...) The rooms are simple, but very nice and clean, staff is helpful and friendly most of the time, though they can get a little irritated around breakfast time... It's not a luxury accomodation, but well priced for its quality and i'd certainly recommend it for a few days' stay in glasgow!
I spent 3 nights at this hotel in April 2005, while attending a Conference at the Scottish Exhibition Conference Centre nearby. I think it was an excellent choice. I booked via Expedia.co.uk, only 39 pounds per room per night, B&B. Very convenient for the SECC. Very clean and pleasant. Good food. Good staff. Excellent transport links. I was overall very satisfied. I would definitely recommend it, specially if you are going to a Conference.
Modern and clean
I really enjoyed this hotel. Everything was excellent. I will recommend a restaurant that is close by acroos the parking lot. It's in a round building and looks a bit worn, but excellent chinese food. Staff at the hotel were all friendly and helpful. My room was clean and spacious.
Never having stayed in a Campanile, I was a little apprehensive as I tend to favour the more luxury end of hotels. Check-in was uneventful and it was obvious that this is a very popular hotel, probably because of the price. Room was ok - a very good example of maximum use of a tiny space! Breakfast at £6 was really quite good for the price - you can have an adequate cooked breakfast and a good array of continental choices in the buffet.
Excellent Hotel Excellent Value
I was passing through Glasgow and stayed in the Campanile Glasgow, this was my first experience of a Campanile Hotel. The standards were as would be expected basic, but extremely clean with an en-suite shower room, which was again spotless. The staff were incredibly helpful, and it is in a good location for accessing the centre of Glasgow, with Glasgow's Central Station being only two stops from the SECC Train Station which is around a 5-10 minute walk away.
An excellent hotel all that could be asked for.
Nice, New, Clean
Tourist class hotel that if not new seems as clean as if it were. Good size and great deal. Not in the center of the action but a short twenty minute walk puts you close to Central Station and the heart of the tourist portion of the city.
We picked this hotel as 1. very good price found on Web; 2. Location; and 3. Free parking - affordable parking is v v v difficult to get in Glasgow and the wardens are very hot on offenders.
We stayed at the Campanile Hotel for a weekend recently and felt the service was disappointing. The staff were friendly enough at face value but did not go even slightly out of their way to assist us with anything. The phone in our room was not connected when we arrived meaning they failed to pass on an important message. They clearly did not have the initiative to find another way to contact us and the fact was they simply didn't care. On arrival I asked to borrow an ice bucket and despite being laden with bags and three staff standing at reception doing nothing, noone offered to assist me. We could not locate an ironing board over the whole three days but were told we'd just need to 'keep our eye out' till one was available, they didn't lift a finger. The management at the Campanile should realise that despite being a cheap hotel, service is priceless and it is the little things that matter and encourage people to return to and recommend their hotel. I stay in hotels in Glasgow frequently and will not be back.
Not advisable for the Non-Smokers
OK, I did not stay here for a valid reason and have now cancelled my booking. But have submitted this review for fellow healthy anti-smokers out there. I asked for a non-smoking room (apparently available on request - or so I thought), this was the response from them: I have marked your booking as non smoking but we allocate rooms on a firstcome first serve basis so if you check in very late you may not beguaranteed a non smoking room. This after I said I would be checking in at around 11pm due to a 6 hour drive to get there. I couldn't bring myself to also then stay in a disgusting, smoke infested room. Absolutely awful and should be made illegal. I'm disgusted!
The kindness of strangers
Chain hotels, we've all been to a million, it looks like one from the outside, when you get in from the moment you get to reception you are hit by the warmth and joie de vivre of the staff, these people CANNOT do enough, no task is too small. SO if you want the chain hotel price with out the chain hotel attitude go to the Camponille.
