If we're going or not, I'll make sure to find you a phone number of a Glasgow taxi service Kevin!

It's a shame we can't take a roll call of names for those going to this and get a group booking organised

Or, just as an idea, get groups of 4 or 6 and hire an apartment in Glasgow for 2 or 3 nights, some of the ones I have been looking at come in about £70 - £80 a night, split 4 ways thats £20 each.

Yes you would have to sort out you're own breakfast but you can stock the fridge up with food and beer.

The reason I suggested this is I did something similar in Edinburgh this year and it saved us a lot of money, but there was 8 of us in a 3 bed apartment.

Just as a thought here, £148 for 4 people for 2 nights, £18.50 each for a city centre apartment. That is the best deal I have found so far

I found a few cheap options on this site:

By the way, how much did everyone pay for HHH in August? I think I paid about 35 quid a night but I only booked it a week in advance.

Well, I'm gonna be staying ....... in my flat. Just posting to let you know the thistle is the nearest to the GFT and it has a good reputation. The other close by, big name option would be the Travel Lodge Central, just around the corner from the Thistle.

There's also a ton of little B+Bs on Renfrew Street( http://www.glasgowonline.co.uk/street/renfrew_street ) if you want a more personal touch.

Ta! I looked at the B&Bs on review sites and they were nasty (I am very very fussy!!)

Go for the Thisle then, it's the best we've got near to the GFT.

God dammit!! The thistle was cheaper? :P

Mr Jay will be happy to know that Giz, Dog, Rufus, SarahP and Maxi usually have a drinking session on the last night as well as a chit chat before we all abandon each other :)

You're more than welcome to pile in too... just watch out for Rufus' wandering hands...

Same goes for Jamie n others... urrrrr it's BYOB though :D
