I am so excited about going to Australia and becoming a teenager. It shall be great. Santa will come and he will give me lots of present, I hope! I've got one more day of school left and then we are driving to Manchester to get our flight at 2pm on Thursday. I think the flight is going to really bad because its 24 hours long. What am I going to do? I hope there will be a lot of movies and nice food. ...
So we're at the stage of planning everything. We know the basic route we want to go on, first Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands for a while as mark is heading out to work there for a bit then we can head to South America to travel around until the money runs out. Now we need to get all the details sorted but its difficult to know how much to plan because you don't want to be stuck ...
... onto presumably relatives for dear life.
I'm sure people must have been thinking I was a tad deranged as I skipped merrily towards the departure gate with a huge grin on my face! Ironically, the sun was out in Glasgow for once, I figured in mockery for me flying out. But even the blue skies couldn't put a smile on the faces of those in the Departure lounge. The rows of sombre faces were more reminiscent of mourners at a funeral than a lucky bunch ...
... exhibition on Mackintosh and the water tower were closed for renovations. We did see the furniture gallery where current furniture designers display their work for sale. There was a speed-boat bed and some really interesting tables.
The tour then took us along Buchanan Street to the Arch leading to Merchant City Square. In the Square, we saw what was the private mansion of one of the tobacco lords. The tobacco lords, or Virginia Dons, ...
... the usual fuel stop in Warrington. I was quite tired so I had a couple more stops before getting back to Newton just to see my wife going back out to work (Keeping me in the way I have been accustomed to spending)
Since my trip the Bus has had all the mechanical jobs done and is nearly ready for the big trip.
Now I have to pack and arrange my train journey and accommodation ready for the big off on the 14th of September

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Glasgow City Centre
Have to agree...where are the four stars....???
Ratings= 5-Excellent- 1-Poor
Warmth of welcome was not good from the lady. (bad start) (2/5) and the amount of information given wasn't great. The reception area was however bright and tidy.
The rooms were on the small side, esp the bathroom, which was very disappointing- the facilities (such as Cd Player, Comfortable bed) was a nice touch though and compensated somewhat. One thing that was missing was e.g Wine glasses (resorted to use bathroom tumblers!) and a fridge
would be of use. The Bathroom had no bath! But a powershower was there in place. Overall it was Ok. A point to note was the cleaning service- not up to scratch. Like another review said-couldn't swing a cat in the room-but perhaps this is City Inns ethos..
Service During the Night- N/A
Departure- Everything was good and in order.
Ground + Car Parks- N/A
Meeting Rooms- N/A
This was what saved us from having a disappointing stay at the City Inn.
The food was very good, Staff (French) very good and attentive- the
place has a nice atmosphere. Drinks choices were good. (4/5)
Would we stay at the City Inn again? Uncertain. We had a very enjoyable stay at the Radisson SAS recently in Glasgow but gave City Inn a shot on
the Basis of the website and reviews (on Tripadvisor)
It wasn't a terrible trip but nor was it good either.
Where are your four stars???
when they say its the people that make the place, the city inn is starting at a loss. Some say that customer service is a calling, I have never seen so many people dial the wrong number. Reception staff that, that seem more hormonal than a menopausal woman with no hrt and cleaners that have a case of amnesia so bad that forget about the mould in the bathroom they cannot remember how to use a vacuum. Stay at the camponille its SO much better, we did after a night at the city inn
nice hotel very clean staff very friendly,rooms are not massive but have all you need.power shower is good.the breakfast is excellent
Friendly, clean with good food. Convenient for SECC
Good value for money
Bit out of town but 5 min walk to S.E.C.C. Rooms modern and clean with great power shower!! Good breakfast-lots of smoked salmon! Very helpful staff, first room allocated a bit smelly, but on complaining were immediately moved, not the Ritz or a Malmaison but shop about for a reduced rate and you will find it sensibly priced. Better than a tatty old grand hotel! Yes the room did seem a bit compact but had a 6ft bed!
Just dont try to walk into city center-its only £3 in a taxi! Parking could be more secure.
Good standard modern hotel & a Great location for concerts at the SECC
Great venue if you are going to a concert or event at the national Exhibition Centre. Right on the River Clyde and adjacent to the City Centre and West End. Modern comfortable hotel with good room facilities and an excellent restaurant offering real value for money. The scottich breakfast is cooked to order not the usual horrible buffet left under lights. Highly recommended.
Great Value Great Service
Modern, 'fresh' furnishings and decor. The room may have been a little small but it was lovely with air con, TV and Hi Fi and good standard decor. Nice bar and restaurant with decking terrace onto the River Clyde. We had an excellent dinner in the restaurant and best of all was the breakfast which - Oh happy day! - is cooked fresh and delivered to your table rather than the usual horrible buffet sat under the heatlamps which is sadly the morm at many hotels. We thought it great value.
Great View over the river
Great Views up the river, the rooms were a bit on the small side but all the facilities were new, modern and clean. Very friendly staff the hotel was only a 10 min walk into the town centre along the riverside which was very pleasent. I would definately go back and the breakfast was fantastic!!
No cats please
Mostly OK but don't bring your cat as you will be unable to swing it in your room
