Discounts for World Pipe Band Champs!

Discounts for World Pipe Band Championships

What’s that we hear? The soothing sounds of a piper in the distance? Or is the tapping of keys as our latest offer is taken up, with droves of guests booking direct through our website? Oops, forgive us – we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves! 

It’s the time of year when pipers from 15 nations across the globe convene in Bonnie Scotland and, more specifically, Glasgow, to give it their all and compete for the hallowed title of Champion. The World Pipe Championships aren’t just attended by local merry-makers.  No, the competition sees a host of international guests gather on Glasgow Green for the heats on 17th August and the last battle of the finals the day after. This dynamic event makes the papers each year, with bursts of colour from the teams’ costumes, droves of excited spectators and even a kids’ zone to keep the little ‘uns entertained. 

At the Ambassador Hotel we’re always keen to welcome our international guests, and those from hailing from closer to home, through our doors to enjoy a pleasant, hassle-free stay at our 3-star residence. Even better, once you’ve had a busy, fun-filled day at the Pipe Band Championships (also known as the Worlds), you can retreat to our Hotel on the banks of the babbling River Kelvin, the Clyde’s quieter cousin.

If you’re a regular follower of our blog, then you’ll know we’ve given you a detailed lowdown on what’s happening at the Worlds this year, so let’s get on to the most important matter of the day – saving money! To celebrate one of our favourite weekends of the year, we’re offering a 10% discount on stays between the 16th and 19th of August – just enter the code PIPE10 at the checkout to have your bill reduced. The event officially takes place on the 17th and 18th of the month but we know it can take a little time to get to and from the city, so we’ve added a day either side of the deal to give you breathing space. Plus, there’s so much to see and do here that we’d love our guests to explore Glasgow beyond the Green and the Worlds to truly make the most of what we have to offer. Remember to use our dedicated booking site to secure your room as it’s the only place you’ll be able to redeem this fantastic offer and access our most up-to-date room availability. The city is packed out during the event so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment!
