Unable to find hotel or b&b 14 July

Having checked out many hotel and b&b sites - there doesn't appear to be anything available under £100 per night- any ideas why Glasgow is so booked up for that night?Have even looked outside Glasgow, but as we are relying on public transport from Prestwick, need accommodation near a station for 2 nights.

Bruce Springstein is playing at Hamden in Glasgow that night so that is why everywhere will be booked up.

Fortunately, for the original poster as I pointed out, this is not the case

Thanks-but as we got a bargain airfare of £6 each inc taxes, it will be cost effective to not take the flights and go somewhere else- where we can get a good hotel deal for half the cost. Will make sure next time to check where Bruce S is performing before we choose a destination !

So what is your budget then if not £75 per night per room?

We had looked at this week and the following week and could find 3* hotels inc breakfast in central or west end for £50 per night. Although there are airport hotels for this amount for next week-I am not sure if its an easy public transport ride into Glasgow and back each day we are there

Travelling in and out of the city centre is easy using public transport. There are several services from the airport including http://www.glasgowflyer.com/ and glasgow-airport-guide.co.uk/transport.html#c

If I were you however I would stay in the West End, which is good for restaurants and bars, etc. There are a couple of subway stations and several buses that take you into the centre if you want to go in there. If you like walking you can walk it in about thirty minutes.

Thanks for the information. Unfortunately there don't appear to be any reasonably priced hotels or b&bs in the West End available on 14th- the Bruce Springsteen fans have booked them all !

Try the Scottish Tourist Board website:

When we did an accommodation search of Glasgow it was slim pickings at under 100 per night, but there were a couple of choices.

Good luck.

Try the Accomodation office at Strathclyde University as the campus is in the city centre

(www.rescat.strath.ac.uk/village_rates.html).

Glasgow University in the West End may have similar offers.
