Day 14: Lake District - Glasgow

This morning we had seats at the front of the bus. What a great day to have this good fortune as the scenery was magnificent again as we headed further north along the Kirkstone Pass to the Scottish border. The bus navigated the narrow mountain roadway to Ullswater, a lake much admired for its attractive …

... any of the castle had been recreated as a castle and that was a little disappointing, so I'm glad that I got to see Stirling Castle. When I'd finished with the Castle I walked the Royal Mile, which is the mile long road downhill from the castle to the holloway palace at the bottom of the hill which is where the queen stays when she visits, and apparently she must have been visiting or due to visit as the castle was closed (though not the gift shop of course). I then attempted to ...

... surrealist painting, poke fun at classical architecture and make the building uniquely Mackintosh. It seems to create a space in which anything can happen, exactly what you want in an arts school. On our way back to the apartment we had beers at Waxy O'Connors, one of the most beautifully decorated pubs I've ever been in, and then grabbed takeout dinner from the local chippy. Monday was mom's first day of her conference. After walking her to the building, I went off to do a bit more ...

Day 32 - Keith suffers on a day of two halves

... birds and saw a small mammal running ahead of us on the path which without a rabbit tail we could not identify. We followed this reserve which is made up of a mix of meadow, marshland, scrub, woodland and wetland habitats. We walked along the Lime Walk as we came out of the nature reserve and into Adder's Gill Wood. Finally we emerged into open pasture land. By now it was 12.30 and we felt we were making good time. Keith was beginning to develop ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow

    Fresh Modern Hotel


    I must take exception with the negative Review by the person from Perth, noting that all the Reviews from people outside Scotland are exceptionally positive. I work opposite the Radisson SAS. This area is by Central Station and can get lively at night, but the best thing to do is have a few drinks and join in with the locals! The Wetherspoons pub opposite is very cheap, popular with office workers and comfortable. The 'Horseshoe' Bar the other side of Central Station is famous for its long bar and there are signed Albums by local Bands. A block away from the Hotel, much investment is taking place in new Offices and Apartments. PS Just to warn the prudes, the Waterloo pub opposite has a large gay following, and the streets to the north of here house the red light area but this is well policed. If you're staying a while, the little riverbus stops nearby on the broomielaw and takes you to the new shopping mall at Braehead with a commentary on the River Clyde. In summer the paddleship Waverley starts from a few blocks away and cruises up the Clyde, not to be missed. Hope you have a great time here.

    Wonderful hotel in the heart of glasgow


    I have just spent 4 days at this wonderful hotel in the heart of Glasgow. The Hotel rooms were excellently furnished and the staff were only too pleased to help. The Health Suite was easily accessible and very clean with ever helpful staff.The Breakfasts were excellent value for money and I have no hesitation in reccomending this top quality hotel.

    SAS - Such A Shame


    For a start, Glasgow has shaken off it's old image, but unfortunately the new hotel is in a "Dodge City" area of Glasgow. We got a good deal, but the hidden cost was that we did not wish to venture out after dark - so ate terrible, overpriced food in a brightly lit, canteen environment called Collage. Not impressed at all - like something a bit more reflecting the town I stay in, than the hotel chain.

    Loved everything about this hotel.


    Fantastic, start to finish. We didn't get around to using the health club, but we looked around it and it was great. The staff was wonderful, the room was gorgeous (we had metro, or modern, forget what it was called) and the location was perfect. I know where I'm staying if I'm ever in Glasgow again.

    Super hotel, super staff


    Decided to stay at the Radisson for a leisure break to Glasgow after checking out existing web reviews. They are all spot on. The hotel, while new, had a tremendous feel to it which made it very easy to relax. This was helped no end by the staff. Without exception, they were cheerful and helpful. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

    My favorite hotel over 3 week European trip


    I was very pleasantly surprised by the Radisson in Glasgow. I never knew Radisson had hotels like this. Beautiful, modern, spacious, comfy beds. I just loved the look of the whole place. And they didn't skimp on the rooms either. I loved the decor, the bathroom was so nice I wanted to take a picture. We got a great deal on the rate too. The breakfast buffet was a bit pricey, but it was very good and if you want a lot of food you'll want to eat there. The location was pretty good.

    We only had to walk a couple of blocks to get to the shopping district and lots of restaurants, although the Radisson appears to have a very nice restaurant of its own. All in all I loved it, and I would definitely go back to Glasgow just to stay at the Radisson.

    Old style Glasgow welcome, new Glasgow style hotel


    I was here for a conference in June and intend coming back for a weekend break this Autumn. I thought the hotel was beautiful, clean, airy; staff willing, friendly and efficient; food excellent. Even the minibar had nice unusual things in it and unexpectedly reasonable prices. Also loved the funky shampoo, soap etc. At our conference, staff kept the bottled water coming and everywhere was lavishly supplied with pens, paper and (happy days!) wrapped chocolates. There wasn't anything I didn't like about the hotel and look forward to going back with my partner.

    Modern stylish and good breakfast!!!!!!!


    check in was very polite and quick. took a twin room which was big enough to share without being too intimate. the mini-bar surprisingly reasonable if you needed it. rooms very very clean and comfortable and good bathroom products which were replaced every day. the style of the hotel is very modern with a great lobby and bar area which is good for post evening drinks. . . and the breakfasts are very good quality with lots of fresh fruit in a good surrounding. staff very polite and helpful throughout. have booked to go back next month and would recommend it over other hilton-type hotels



    Managed to stay at the Radisson Glasgow while in the UK. Fantastic, beautiful room, and very friendly staff. Excellent position in the city. Would definately recommend this hotel.

    Radisson SAS - perfect


    Radisson Glasgow opened in November 2002. I found it to be excellent. Rooms were spacious and very comfortable. Meals were also very good - especially the breakfast.

    Staff very helpful also.

    Hotel is in the middle of Glasgow's shopping area and beside the Central Railway Station.
