St Jude is sometimes known as the patron saint of lost causes. If it looks as though all hope is lost then apparently he is the saint that you want to have your back. That’s ironic because there is absolutely nothing hopeless about St Judes Boutique Hotel or its rather fantoosh basement restaurant, The Saint.
Recently renovated to make the most of the building’s stylish Victorian structure and its sleek interior design, St Judes has long been a hip hangout in Glasgow city centre. We could tell you about all the stars that have spent a night in one of its five chic bedrooms but then we would have to kill you. Well, not really. If you promise not to tell anyone then we might be able to drop a couple of names. But we’ll have to disguise them. Let’s just say that Chewin’ McGregor, the Rings of Leon and Beaches Geldof have all been guests but you didn’t hear it from us, right?
So, if you want a taste of luxury in Glasgow city centre but don’t have the bank balance of a Hollywood film star then today’s big Deal is for you. You get an overnight stay in one of the spacious and extremely well kitted out rooms; a welcome bottle of wine; a two course gastro pub meal for two in The Saint Restaurant and a cocktail to put a cap on your meal. After that, the choice is yours: go club-hopping around Glasgow’s legendary nightlife or discreetly retire to the snazzy comfort of your room.
The cost of all this high-rolling luxury is £99, a saving of £111 on the standard price.
