Underground Caving... WOW

... to mention, while you're on your back to get through this hole, you have to turn your head to the right, otherwise you wouldn't be able to fit through. That's how small we're talking. Wow... so as some of the brave were attempting this challenge, I was unsure if I wanted to go back out the way we came in or attempt it. Well this one guy went down a couple before me and basically freaked out and thought he was stuck in the hole part and couldn't move. Yeah, that was great... right ...

Scotland - where has the sunshine gone?

... I give the UK 8/10 for such a comprehensive bike track network but 2/10 for a very poor public toilet network. I started the run at 9am which was good practice for my marathon that starts at 8 am - nutrition is difficult to manage for me at that time of day (I don't eat before I run) so it was a good test. Needless to say I was very hungry by the end of the run. Arriving back at Rachael's I was well and truly ready for a shower, feed and sleep. ...

... chips. We then headed for a walk along the beach and caught up on how each other's travels had been. Megan and Kevin have spent the last 7 weeks travelling throughout England, catching up and meeting all of Kevin's extended family as well as many friends along the way.
We then drove through Ayr, looking out for Dad's shop.... We later stopped in at Alloway, the town where Robbie Burns was born and lived. We had a quick walk around the gardens of the Robbie Burns museum ...

West Highland Way

... was a little bridge and a group of a dozen or more elderly folks - in their eighties - they were sitting on the bridge and surrounding rocks (the only place to sit) having finger sandwiches and tea. If it hadn't been so miserable I would have taken a picture! The 'Devil's Stairway' was on the way down for me, so I started asking people how far it was to the summit. I got the usual, a wee bit farther and it's downhill all the way, so just kept trudging on. One Scottish ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Carlton George Hotel Glasgow

    Location good but not much else

    from

    The only thing this hotel has going for it is the location right in the heart of Glasgow. It started badly when the optional breakfasts (an additional 25%) had been added to the room rate but never mentioned during the reservation. I was made to feel as if I was being awkward by asking them to quote the correct rate . The rooms are clean but the inside of the minbar was a disgrace and the cheap plastic feel to the bathroom hardly matched the hotel's claimed 4 star status. The complimentary minibar consisted of a single can of orange juice and 3 decanters of whisky, sherry and gin, perfect for a stag night but of little use to a family. Heating in the bathroom was unavailable which for Scotland in December is an unpleasant way to start the day. The checkout was nice but I won't be back.

    Just wonderful!

    from

    Stayed here for two nights in October 2004, the night before my wedding and our first night. This hotel is just fantastic! The staff are absolutely brilliant: friendly, funny, helpful and completely professional. They give the impression that they care about their work and are proud of this lovely hotel. The restaurant is excellent for both dinner and breakfast, with wonderful views, and the executive lounge is a fantastic idea. Our room was huge, and extremely comfortable. The pricing is impressive, in fact everything about this hotel is really impressive.

    We're already looking forward to going back for our first wedding anniversary - can't wait! Utterly wonderful.

    Truly the best hotel I have ever stayed in

    from

    Don't know how anyone could write a review giving this hotel a 1 rating. There isn't an ounce of dust or dirt in the place. Don't let that review put you off because it simply isn't true!

    Warm and friendlly

    from

    I always read the reviews on tripadvisor before booking a hotel but have never written one after staying at many of the places that I read about. After my stay at the Carlton George I decided to write a review. We thought this hotel was just lovely. The rooms were extremely clean. Service was outstanding. We travel very often and have never experienced a staff as warm, and friendly as this staff. They could not do enough for us. The location was right in the heart of the city so you could walk everywhere. The complimently mini bar and decanters of spirits in our room was an added touch as well as the executive lounge that provided coffee, tea and drinks at no charge. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Glasgow.

    Good central Glasgow option

    from

    This was a good, reliable hotel in a really central location in Glasgow. Our room was rather dark but other aspects of the hotel made up for it: free mini-bar and decanters of spirits, lovely service and a large, comfortable bed. Worth checking to see if breakfast is included in your price: it seems quite unlikely that it will be.

    Carlton George won our hearts

    from

    Because of a shift in trip plans, we made a last-minute reservation at the Carlton George on West George Street. We were after a good location, and it indeed was perfect--just steps from Queen Rail Station. What we did not expect was the value we got for our money. Perfect bedding, wonderful bathroom, excellent lounge, great food. The staff is superior. We were travelling with two 13 year olds, and we sent them off to research restaurants. Two members of the staff took their concerns seriously, and soon the two girls had a book of menus and a list of the staff favorites.

    This place exudes an air of "we know how to keep our clientele." We shall return!

    Wonderful weekend

    the freemini- bar and complementary drinks in the lounge is an added bonus.1st Class.

    Definitely would stay here again!

    from

    I was here for a week and the stay was wonderful. Carlton George is in a very convenient location and in the busiest area of Glasgow, but didn't hear any street noise at night. The service here was great. Free mini-bar and internet access was a definite bonus! The room size is relatively smaller to hotels in the US, but definitely not cramped or anything. If I were to go to Glasgow again, I'd definitely stay here again!

    Wonderful Weekend in the

    from

    Myself and three female friends spent a weekend at the Carlton George in Glasgow. We found the hotel very comfortable and staff friendly. The rooms were spacious and beautifully furnished. The complimentary bar was a pleasant bonus. All of us being over 50 we found the hotel a pleasant calm atmosphere. The lounge for residents included complimentary coffe and drinks and peace to chat or read. The restaurant overlooks the rooftops of Glasgow and the food was excellent. We so much enjoyed our visit we are going again in October to sample the delights.
