Hi

My friend and I are going to see a show at The Clyde auditorium in Glasgow. We have decided to stay overnight and go shopping the next day before coming home.

Can anyone recommend a decent hotel or B&B within walking distance. Thanks.

Edited to add: It is not until November.

    We are staying at the Campanile Hotel which is within walking distance of the SECC.
    I haven't stayed there before so can't give a review but it was a reasonable price for a 3 star hotel.Booked it through Hotelopia,but I think you can book direct.
    Good luck

    Campanile has been used by a colleague before, he liked it.

    We were really disapappointed by the Moat House,which,like the Campanile is right next to the SECC and Armadillo (Clyde Auditorium)

    Have a great time, whoever you are seeing!

    Can recommend the City Inn which is a couple of mins walk to the SECC.

    Stayed there a few times and had no complaints.

    Have also stayed at the Moat House (I think it is now the Crowne Plaza) - not impressed and wouldn't go back.

    A few years ago we booked into the Moat House months in advance of a concert only for us to arrive at reception after a 4 hour train journey to be told they had no rooms (conference or something on!) But... they had booked us into the Raddisson for the same price and paid all taxi fares including to concert and back so I can't complain.
    As for walking distance you could look at hotels a wee bit further away as the taxis are very reasonable and worth it if only just for the drivers patter!

    Why not stay in the city centre & get the low level train to Finnieston (SECC) approx £1.50 return, the covered walkway grom the train station leads you to the front door of the "red shed". That would be a better option for shopping the next day.
    Every day above ground is a good day.
