We attended the Grease tribute night with friends recently and can honestly say it would be a long, long time before we would consider attending any kind of event in the Normandy.
To start from the beginning, the hotel apparently were in the middle of a maintenance problem and due to this had overbooked and therefore arranged for many of the guests booked in for the tribute night to be moved to other hotels nearby. This would appear helpful at first, however, when speaking to the girl on reception regarding this, I was informed that we would be responsible for the extra taxi fares to and from the hotel and also the parking fees at the designated hotel. The whole point of booking into the same hotel you are attending the tribute at, is to avoid having the hassle of taxis, etc. On arrival at the hotel, (the Holiday Inn, Glasgow Airport), we spoke to other people in the same position as us, only to discover, they were being picked up by the Normandys' minibus, which would not appear to have existed until this point.
To cut a long story short, we were eventually refunded our initial taxi fare, and offered the use of the minibus to return to our hotel, but only after we ourselves pursued this. And although the Normandy picked up the tab for our parking fees at the Holiday Inn, they made no attempt to contact us and offer any transport to and from the function.
Our party felt very let down and as I said before, would not return to the Normandy in a hurry, nor would we recommend to any one else.
