Hotel review: Alexander Thompson Hotel, Glasgow

While we were in Glasgow for the weekend, we ended up in the Alexander Thomson Hotel. It was during the Edinburgh Festival, and even in Glasgow, hotels were hard to find. This hotel is a budget option. We had an attic room, which was OK, but the bed hardly counted as a double: ona-and-a-half at most. Otherwise everyhing was fine. The hotel could not be blamed for some very noisy neighbours on Saturday night. When we first arrived, the elevator had some problems, but that was the only time. Location: on Argyle Street, right next to the Waterloo.

Hotel review: Ord House Hotel, Muir of Ord

While on our way to Scrabster, we stayed one night in the Ord House Hotel. It’s an old country house, with a definite old-world charm. The rooms were OK. As in many British hotels, the bathroom was carpeted throughout… We had the Superior Double Ensuite, which included a bathroom with bath, but no shower. No TV in the room. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was excellent. Free WiFi.

Overall, a pleasant stay, but a tad expensive.
