I attended the University of Glasgow SMLC Graduation Ball on the 24 June 2010 at the Hilton Grosvenor Hotel. The ticket price was £45, which included a three course meal. Never in my memory have I eaten a worse meal at a hotel: the products were cheap, frugal and wholly lacking in flavour. The soup was glutinous and salty, the vegetables were frozen and the chicken was insipid. The pudding was a milky jelly. In all my years of air and rail travel, I have never eaten worse. For University staff, the ticket was already costly; for students, the ball ticket is a major investment, particularly if they attend as a couple. We do not expect to receive so little (the food per unit could not have cost little more than a few pounds) for what we paid. I shall dissuade future Grad Ball Committees from holding events at this local venue. This is a shame because the hotel is conveniently placed and the building is well-designed for such events; despite the food, the atmosphere was excellent. But the hotel definitely took advantage of local students in terms of the very poor quality of food served up.
