Ok. We have tickets. We would love a wee hotel to stay in overnight, just one night, with the dc. This would be a wee treat and make a holiday out of it. Our tickets are for an evening event, so the notion of sauntering back late to a hotel is appealing, then being in Glasgow for free events the next day.
Expedia has nothing for that date.
All premier inns have no availability within a 20m radius.
Holiday Inn express: full.
Jury's Inn: no availability. Etc etc. we have been trawling.
Dh found a 3 star guesthouse for £1500 - yes, really - for one night.
Are these chain hotels blocked out to be released closer to the time?
Have you tried www.airbnb.co.uk I've just used it for a wee weekend in London and its fab. Lots of people rent out their spare rooms but there are many apartments, studios etc that folk rent out as their business.
