... and the masses loved it. I saw quite a few people working on things, and the kids had an especially fun time. While some of it was silly or pointless, like people writing "Jim from Texas" in coloured tape on the wall, much of it was quite nice, and even thought provoking!
I couldn't resist having a go myself, and found a few supplies: some string, cardboard, sellotape (scotch tape for my Canadian readers), a pen and scissors. As I went along something came to me. I ...
Well DCD (Dear Cousin David - for those who aren't in the know) left me today! :-( for the US - when he eventually gets to Seattle (via about 6-dozen stops!).
We have been wandering around Glasgow for the last few days. Nothing too exciting but still some lovely old buildings - and I say that because everything is older than Aus!
Oh one thing, the Scots have their own Pounds so you will probably get it in change or in the ATMs ...
... to meet us. First was Paul (Alec's brother) with his wife Margaret, followed by Alec's other sister Mary and her husband Bernie (a great laugh), not to forget 'Uncle Jimmy' who is Alec's father. We also had great fun spilling over all the photos of the Pattison's trip to New Zealand 13 years ago, loving the outfits exposed. Cheryl's friends Mel and ...... also came over to join us for the remainder of the nights festivities. After all the family had left, Bill and Isobel ...
... however, and I would rather NOT walk on rocky terrain. The last half of my trip was just that - big rocks, little rocks, slippy rocks, trippy rocks. Just lots of rocks. I was worried I would trip and break my ankle...luckily, I was watching my every step. Along about the ruins, I met Dave and Jaz. They are walking the length of the island, from the southern tip of England to the northern part of Scotland, called the Lambert Walk. They were my age and had grown ...

Not sure about where to go next, we kind of ended in a small side room that had the oddest group of items I'd ever seen. I didn't get a picture, but I remember that there was a coin purse that had coins suspended in the motion of spilling out of the purse, and the description given was that men from a certain club would give dinner parties and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn Glasgow City Centre South
This felt like a 3-star hotel, with a corresponding price range and amenities. The room decor and furnishings were particularly splendid for a 3-star. It is not exactly in the most interesting part of town, though. If you get a north-facing room, the beautiful Glasgow College of Nautical Studies dominates your view. This area of town was apparently the nasty, run-down section some decades ago, but it has been revitalized to some extent, and it felt safe to walk around, in the daytime, anyway. It's about a mile or so walk or a quick drive to the hot spots of downtown Glasgow. My big complaint with this hotel was the service -- the staff were far from eager to accommodate me, even if I asked a lot of questions as a clueless foreigner. They had a poor attitude when it came to fixing the telephone in my room, and they took their time about it. There's ample free parking and a supermarket nearby, but I didn't see any restaurant within easy walking distance except the hotel restaurant.
Not bad for the money
Friendly, helpful staff and our room was clean and comfortable. The current US/BP exchange rate made the room seem a bit pricey but in pound terms it's not a bad deal. The hotel is not in the best location and may give a bad impression of the city. However, it is within walking distance of the city center...about 15 minutes. Decor is pretty much like the photos on this site but the beds are so-so. We found this to be the case throughout Scotland though.
The Tulip in located on the south side of the river. The area is not the most picturesque that Glasgow has to offer, however the Merchant City area is within walking distance, with a slightly longer walk to various restaurants.
The location and free carpark is very well suited to people with cars.
Our room was large and clean. The hotel was well presented, and we thought it was very good value.
I can agree that this hotel is in a "dodgy" area. We stayed for 1 night in March but the hotel was excellent, very clean and very friendly and helpful staff. The High Court if not far from this hotel so loads of dodgy folk hanging around the court during the day but the hotel is within walking distance of the town centre and only a couple of pounds in a taxi to the SECC. At night there's nothing going on and the streets are pretty much empty so no loud noises, pubs etc.
I would definately recommend this hotel if your just looking for somewhere to crash for a few nights!
I stayed for three days in this hotel. It is a no-nonsense motel style place, excellent when you are travelling or on a business trip. It has spacey, clean, comfortable rooms and a friendly staff. It also has more than enough free parking. Obviously there is nothing special or romantic about the hotel, but I would say that about Glasgow as a whole. If you want carpet on your bathroom floor, look somewhere else. It had a 'most improved in 2004' award sitting on its reception desk, so the chain seems to agree with the older reviews.
Having lodged in several 'chain' hotels in Glasgow in recent years, this was one of our better one-night stays. The room we had was comfortable and well-appointed - everything was there and it all worked! Sure, the location is a bit off-putting, but you're not that far from the city centre and the advantage of having plenty of parking on the site is a big one.
The location is initially off-putting but it's great for anyone needing car parking and it's a short walk into central city Glasgow. we stayed here twice, each time for a few days over a 4 week period and both times we were very comfortable: the rooms are big and new, there is good reading light, the beds are new and comfy, bathrooms are roomy, well designed and clean and everything basically works. Staff were reasonably helpful - loaned us road maps, gave directions and advice etc. we didn't use the cafe for breakfast - it looked uninteresting and was very expensive. We'd recommend it.
I am writing to add to the two Reviews so far, both negative. This hotel is now the Tulip Inn Glasgow, but you won't see many tulips around here. I don't know about the poor service, but the location is outside the city centre in an area that used to be called the Gorbals.
I should have known we were in trouble when the cab driver didn't know where this hotel was.... then on the way, he sort of raised one eyebrow when I gave him the street address. Apparently, this isn't the nicest section of Glasgow and was the section known for razor gangs in the 60s. The area seems to have improved since then, but it's still bit run down in comparison with other areas.The hotel itself wasn't terrible, although much of the amenities listed on various web sites simply don't exist. Breakfast was NOT included and was a whopping 7 pounds per person. I found no pool or sauna, but there was a small exercise room. The restaurant/bar called "Bibos" is really just a cafeteria-style room and not what I expected from the online description.The "power showers" advertised are simply hand-held spray nozzles.My biggest complaint with this hotel is location. It is extremely noisy, being located next to student housing. Our room overlooked the trash bins for said housing, so there was constant banging/clanging and loud car stereos. It is not convenient at all to the airport or any of the rail stations and everything requires a taxi (unless you go without luggage).I would stay there again, but I would do it with less expectations.
I stayed four nights at this hotel in January (2003). Please note, that it had changed ownership when I checked into it back in January, from a Day's Inn to a Tulip Inn.This hotel is located right across the Clyde River from downtown Glasgow. It is very modern, very clean (both the rooms and the public areas), and very nicely decorated throughout (and interesting outside as well!).That is where the pluses end. Some of the staff members were very nice, but the two women who appeared to be the ones in charge, acted VERY unprofessionally, and very strangely.I believe I paid 54 British Pounds each of the four nights, which I would consider very reasonable (it included breakfast which was plentiful and good), if I hadn't encountered such disgusting behavior from the staff members in charge.I would stay at this hotel again on my next visit to Glasgow, IF the management there changes.
