OVERVIEW

A landmark Victorian hotel with a remarkable history: everyone who was anyone visiting Glasgow slept at this railway hotel opening directly onto Central Station. The rooms may be typical of a standard upmarket chain, but there's a flamboyant bar that's all fizz and fun in a winning location for exploring the city (and beyond).

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Not all the culture in Scotland is in Edinburgh. The Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and National Theatre of Scotland are all a short walk away, and the magnificent Burrell Collection, Kelvingrove Museum and Huntarian Gallery are a short hop on the bus. There's a useful Airport Express bus stop, too. Just along Hope Street, you'll find La Laterna, Glasgow's oldest and favourite Italian restaurant, seemingly unchanged for more than 50 years.

By plane: flights from London to Glasgow take 1 hour 15 minutes. The hotel is a 25-minute drive. Parking costs £13.50 per day. Book flights to Glasgow.

By train: 4 hours 30 minutes from London and 3 hours from Manchester. The hotel is a one-minute walk from Glasgow Central station. Book trains to Glasgow.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The romance of train travel and grand hotels may have gone, but the ghosts of its heyday linger in the low-lit reception, extravagantly wide marble staircase, lofty ceilings and the warm, honey-coloured pine panelling so cherished by the Victorians.

THE FACILITIES

Service is always willing if slightly haphazard throughout the hotel. Information can be hard to come by, too, so you'll need to swat up on the hotel website. Happily, there is a concierge always on hand who will tell you what's what, sort you out and generally make things happen.
