48 Hours in Glasgow!

Here’s the headline. We’re giving all guests who book a weekend stay with us in December 10% off their room rate. The code is DEC10 and you’ll need to use our web system to redeem it. Next up, we have 10% off all January booking – that’s right, all! – with the code, JAN10. Now that you’ve got the best room rates by going direct through the Ambassador Hotel website and have saved yourself some cash, what could you get up to with 48-hours to spare in Glasgow? Read on to find out!


Get checked in with our friendly reception staff who will help you settle into your room (complete with king size bed – bliss!) and give you some insider tips on things to see and do.

Get Acquainted

Head out for a wander and take in the beauty of the banks of the River Kelvin, literally on our door step, then grab yourself a coffee from the North Star Café and Bistro. This boutique little eatery recently won itself some accolades and is well worth a visit. Grab a traditional Italian pastry to munch en-route and start your exploration of the area.

Rest Up

Back in your room for a quick cat- nap (you are on holiday after all, it’s allowed!) and hot shower before getting ready to hit the town. Glasgow has a huge range of bars, clubs and music venues including the well-known King Tuts, Sub Club and Barrowlands Ballroom. If you’re looking for something a little more low-key, keep reading for our recommendation.

Dinner and Drinks

Pop into the Oran Mor for a rich glass of red or even a wee snifter of whisky before dinner. Wander past Glasgow University’s Hogwarts-like towers, spectacularly illuminated by night, as you head out towards the restaurants of Finnieston to indulge in foodie heaven at Six by Nico. This remarkable place gives opportunities to young people who wouldn’t usually be lucky enough to train in such an environment and, impressively, changes its menu every six weeks to suit an original theme.

Oh, What a Beautiful Morning

After a long-lie there’s breakfast to be eaten, with a wonderful view of the mature trees along the River Kelvin to boot. Enjoy Scottish black pudding, bacon, and unlimited coffee while you relax into the idea of someone else doing the cooking for a change.

Home Time, but Not Before…

You check out the Museum of Modern Art. It’s great for a quick whip round for a little culture injection as it’s smack-bang in the middle of the city and just a stroll away from both Queen Street and Glasgow Central stations. If you’re lucky, you’ll see some of the city’s famous murals on the way there too; these vast pieces of artwork were commissioned during the Commonwealth Games 2014 but new images spring up all the time, giving a playful edge to some of Glasgow’s most industrial-looking corners.

Until Next Time!

It’s bye-bye for now but keep an eye on our blog for even more deals in the future!
