... about an hour later and settled in for the night to watch Braveheart. We were all exhausted after this long day so we were off to bed by 11 and up in the morning, packed and ready to go by 8:30.
Yesterday I did some laundry, made a Tesco run and finished up my lab report. Pretty casual day. Now that I've detailed my weekend pretty well (well at least the extreme part), I must attempt to start some other work! That's all for now.

... hotel and had a celebration drink before we headed back out for dinner. We went to wetherspoons for fish Friday but they had no fish as we were deciding what to get the fire alarm went off so everyone had to excavate even though there was no fire until the fire brigade arrived. So we wandered down to another place which turned out to be cheaper and much nicer. All in all a great day. Saturday (25th) after much research there doesn't seem like there is much to do ...
At breakfast we were excused The Full Scottish - much as one loves the whole egg-bacon-sausage-black-pudding-haggis- potato-scone-tomatoes-and-mushroom Thing, it can be A Bit Much after a while, and we delighted to be able to have a wonderful fresh fruit platter as well as some... vegemite toast!! Apparently a jar was left there some time ago by an Australian guest on their last night before returning home, and is a magnet for all visiting Aussies. It's ...

Jenny was on a mission to pick up something to wear to Elizabeth's wedding. Off to the shop Monsoon we go. Dress in hand, now to Primark for the undergarments.
Our hotel faces George Square which for some reason has been blocked off with tall barricades, everyone we ask what is happening with it they
... were back at the hotel (hotel bar) in quick time. After a fairly good crack the night before, which I hasten to add included a decent volume of Scotch Whiskey, a drink which I believe contains chemicals that are surely not meant to be consumed by humans (perhaps better suited to those cheating dogs from the Essendon FC) we were out onto the street of Glasgow. Like most cities in the part of the world the University is a good place start for they are normally centrally ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kelvingrove Hotel Glasgow
Great Service - Nice Hotel
Went down to sunny glasgow with a few friends to see a gig, the staff were very friendly the hotel was great and in response to a review i just read -nothing smelled like tomato soup ;-)
The bathroom facilitys were fine and clean,
I'd go again... in fact they might see me there soon!
Wonderful, will be back again and again
This is a fantastic hotel in the heart of Glasgow. Clean, warm and welcoming. The staff are helpful and go out of their way to make your stay extra special. I hate being away from home but I felt comfortable and relaxed during my stay and we will definately be back again. Thanks to the owners for making us feel so welcome.
Shame about the bathroom
Lovely dining room & breakfast, friendly staff. Room needs updating & bathroom was small, smelly, crumbly & not very clean.
As a frequent traveller I was absolutely delighted with my stay at the Kelvingrove. Great location, great staff, great value....I'll be back!
A friendly and clean hotel
An immaculately clean and pleasant family run hotel that is situated halfway between the city centre and Byres Road. It is set in an ideal location if you are fit enough to cope with the 15 minute walk in either direction (and along the way you get the opportunity to admire many of Glasgow's marvelous variety of buildings). For those who are not so energetic there is a frequent bus service stop nearby and plenty of taxis. The cost of a taxi to the city centre is on average £3.50 to £4.00.
The Kelvingrove was recommended to us. We said that we were looking for a romantic place to stay and Kelvingrove was supposed to be romantic.
Well, it's not. It's old, it's dusty, it's rusty, it's not very clean and the whole place looks very worn-out. There was a strange smell of tomato soup throug the whole place upstairs and downstairs one could hardly breathe because of the thick cigarette smell.
I would definately NOT recommend this place.
And I feel sorry for the very nice staff. They are very friendly and helpfull. Pity they have to work in this old rubbish.
Superb service and a charming place to stay
Myself and my husband were joined in Glasgow by our 19 year old daughter (who is about to enrole at the Glasgow School of Art).
We were luck enough to book into the charming Kelvingrove Hotel. The family owners took real care of us all and made us feel incredibly welcome throughout our stay with them. The hotel is sited close to excellent Glasgow bars and eating places and the hotel reception were kind enough to recommend and book suitable places for us - we were never proved wrong.
The rooms are totally spotless and the Scottish breakfast delicious if a little filling!, We have already booked up to stay (this time for longer) at the Kelvingrove for October and our family will continue to recommend this hotel.
The best service I have received
our friends had stayed at the Kelvingrove Hotel before and had raved about the service and the friendly attiture of the staff. I am glad to say that we were not let down - the family owners were extremely attentive and charming and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were totally spotless and the breakfast was extremely hearty. We have stayed in European hotels twice the price of the Kelvingrove, never with the same attention to detail or genuinely friendly service - such as explaining where the best places to eat and drink were, booking them and
You would be a fool to stay in a chain hotel, when there are independant ones this good in Glasgow.
Big fan of the Kelvingrobe
I've travelled from Canada the last 2 summers, and stayed both times at the Kelvingrove. My room was always meticulously cleaned, all bed linens, curtains, etc. sparkling white.The concierges and wait staff were extra courteous---they even remembered me as I walked through the door on the second summer! As I came and went they always took time to inquire how my day went or where I was going.I plan to visit Glasgow again, and will book the Kelvingrove. It's nicely located on Sauchiehall Street, an easy walk to the downtown yet still near to a local park, art galleries, museums, etc.Price-wise it's about mid-range of other hotels in the area---while I could find a cheaper place I go back for the service and the nice rooms.
