Crowne Plaza Full on Thursday

Our Allocation of rooms for Thursday 24th May is now sold out. However we still have over 60 rooms for Friday 25th till Sunday 27th May. There is a conference on earlier in the week so the Crowne Plaza has no further rooms available at a reasonable price and a few Hotels in the city are completely sold out.

A check today was able to find reasonably priced rooms (£58 - £79) at the "Hampton by Hilton", "the Village" and the "Premier Inn Glasgow Pacific Quay".

We will try to get an allocation for Thursday 24th May 2018 at another hotel nearby.
