Alternative Methods of Transport

I am looking for alternative methods of transport from using a Taxi to travel from Glasgow Queen Street Station to Hotel du Vin & Bistro. I am not expecting buses to stop outside the door I have two legs but it’s too far to walk from Central Glasgow.

I appreciate your expertise I don’t want to break my New Years Resolution of relying on Taxis.

Thank you in advance!

You could try the underground from Buchannan Stn (next door to Queen St) to Hillhead and then walk, although it is maybe still a bit far.

Otherwise you may be surprised, quite a few buses go up Great Western Rd which is where the hotel is so you might get one stopping at the door! Check out www.firstgroup.com I think routes 20 and 66 go that way.

Yes,First Glasgow 20 and 66 would seem to fit the bill.You can get them from St Vincent Pl which is just the other side of George Sq from the station.

They go along Great Western Rd,right past the hotel.

Two public transport options:

Get the train to Hyndland Station and take the exit for the Gartnavel hospitals. From there you can walk to Great Western Road and Hotel du Vin is down to the right - about a 15 minute walk in all from the station.

The other option is to get the bus No. 20 or No. 66 from the city centre. Both buses go down Great Western Road past Hyndland.

I can confirm that there are three buses that stop right outside the end of the hotel (comprised of five townhouses, the bus stop is right after the last one, with the reception right in the middle of the row): the 66, the 20, and 118. These are frequent, especially so during the day.
