The West End of Glasgow is absolutely stunning, we came on business earlier in the week and got a full day to explore. This part of the city is so good, many restaurants and pubs, along with historical buildings. The locals are absolutely sound too!

The West end is perfect for exploring some of the best bars and restaurants Glasgow has to offer. Lovely vibe in the West End and the sub makes getting into the city for bigger shops so easy. A great place to stay.

Glasgow's West End is fantastic, and it soon became my home away from home. It's safe, easily accessible by the subway, or take the 30 minute walk from the city. There is a huge range of shops - selling everything from upmarket homewares to bargain...More
