From Celtic Connections to the Film Festival to the oh-so-tempting Wine, Cheese and Chocolate festival, Glasgow will be an exciting place to be in early 2019.
So why not put yourself in the centre of it all with a night or two at a West End hotel?
With Big Deal on a stay for two at Leonardo Inn Hotel, a bottle of prosecco will be thrown in plus either a £30 shopping gift card or evening meal in the brasserie.
And of course, you don’t need to excuse of a big event to spend a night or two in one of Glasgow’s most fashionable areas — a romantic escape is excuse enough in itself.
Modern West End hotel
Leonardo Inn Hotel is situated on the leafy stretch of Great Western Road in the fashionable West End.
Unusual for hotels in this area, Leonardo Inn offers extensive free on-site parking. You will also have easy access to the M8, Glasgow Airport and the SECC, as well as the city centre.
Glasgow getaway for two
This Big Deal is for two people to stay in a twin or double room, with breakfast and a bottle of prosecco included.
Option one is for an overnight stay with a £30 voucher for Braehead shopping centre thrown in (making this perfect for a January sales spree).
Option two is for a two night stay, with a 2-course dinner for two from the kitchen menu in the hotel’s restaurant.
Each of the 137 guest rooms at Leonardo Inn Hotel is modern and comfortable with an ensuite bathroom.
Features include free WiFi, a 32-inch HD flat screen TV with satellite and cable, telephone, double glazing, seating area, desk, hairdryer and tea & coffee making facilities.
Dinner for two
If you choose option two of this offer then you can enjoy a 2-course dinner for two from the kitchen menu in the hotel’s Brasserie at the Pond. The restaurant’s spacious layout and big picture windows makes this a light and bright spot to dine in.
The menu is bistro-style, offering Scottish and international cuisine with a comfort food feel. Local produce is very much in evidence and dishes reflect the seasons.
Although menus can change, typical mains might include the braised shanks of Borders lamb, the moussaka made with Stornoway black pudding, and the veggie-friendly spinach & ricotta tortellini.
There is also a grill menu featuring the finest quality, aged Scotch sirloin and fillet steak, as well as chicken breast dish and mixed selection.
Whether you know Glasgow like the back of your hand or fancy seeing more of it, you will always find plenty to do in the West End and beyond.
Nearby highlights include the Botanical Gardens, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Glasgow University. You can also find regular theatre events at Cottiers and Oran Mor, plus it’s always a fun night out at The Stand comedy club.
Or why not pair your stay with an event at the SEC, Hydro or Armadillo?
