Accommodation close to transport stop

In May we fly into Glasgow and my daughter is coming on public transport to join us from York. Do the trains and buses all go to the same central location and are there some good reasonably priced hotels close by? Any idea if it is more convenient to take a bus or train from York? Thanks, Alan

There is a good train service from York to Glasgow Central Station by National Express East Coast.

From Glasgow Airport the bus goes to Buchanan Bus Station with stops at the railway stations.

The city centre is compact so everything is close together.

Check the hotel reviews on this site but some suggestions are-

Holiday Inn,West Nile St,

Express by Holiday Inn,West Nile St,

Carlton George,West George St,

Jurys Inn,Jamaica St,

Premier Inn,George St.

Absolutely better to take the train. Not sure if the train comes into Central or Queen St from York but they are both very central anyway. The National Express website offers probably the best fares for this route. The cheapest tickets are usually released between 8 and 12 weeks in advance so keep an eye on the website and you could well get a bargain rate.

You have been given some very good hotel suggestions.

The Menzies Hotel is 10mins walk from Central station.

The Holiday Inn is behind bus station.

Both good places to stay.
