Quick! A November Special…
The Albion Hotel is known for its superior service, super-tasty breakfast and generally being an all-round good egg when it comes to treating guests like kings (and queens!). That’s because we’re absolutely focused on guest experience; from our regular What’s On blogs where we advise on the hottest tickets in town, to our friendly front-desk staff who are only too happy to help you out, whatever your query might be.
We love to welcome old and new faces alike to our three-star residence, so we’re giving all guests who book direct through our dedicated site a 10% discount on their room rate. That’ll leave a few pennies jangling in your pocket for food, drinks and seeing the best of the city while you’re here. Just enter the code 10OFF before the check-out page online. You’ll find our best room rates year-round on the Albion Hotel website too, and the most up-to-date availability, so it’s well worth bookmarking!
November sometimes feels like a bit of a bummer of a month but we’re confident a short break in Glasgow will turn that around. We reckon it’s essential to take a bit of time to yourself between Halloween parties and the enjoy the calm before the storm of Christmas. To that end, we’ve put together the ultimate guide to 48-hours of relaxation in Scotland’s biggest city.
Take Chai at Tchai-Ovna
This hidden gem is nestled at the edge of Glasgow’s West End and is the perfect place to start your weekend of bliss. Expect soulful world music, lots of throw-cushions and even the opportunity to kick back and take your shoes off while you sip sweet, milky tchai, freshly made on the premises all day long.
Drink and Relax at the Gin Spa
Yep, you heard us correctly, the Gin Spa. This playful concept combines treatments using gin as a botanical ingredient with drinking the stuff as well – ideal! Choose from a range of packages encompassing simple massages with a tipple included, to a full 5-course tasting menu to accompany your spa treatment.
Sssh! Get Lost in a Book
Not the usual type of activity on a “what to see and do” list, but the Mitchell Library is one of Glasgow’s most iconic buildings. Wander its corridors, some of which remain practically unchanged since building, and get lost in a good read.
Intimate Drinks at Kelvingrove Café
Head into trendy Finnieston for the evening and enjoy weird and wonderful cocktails (you’ll find the classics on the list too) and a cosy atmosphere. It does get busy but with low lighting and a chilled soundtrack, it’s the perfect place to take an evening off from the rest of the world and recharge with a drink in hand.
