Budget Design Hotels in Glasgow – your Motel One
Glasgow’s image is largely determined by its music and arts scenes. The city is regarded as a centre of alternative music, and has produced many internationally famous artist such as Amy Macdonald, Snow Patrol and Franz Ferdinand. A wealth of music venues and art galleries make Glasgow Scotland’s cultural capital.
There is just as much to appeal to history and architecture enthusiasts. Not far from our hotel, George Square hosts statues of famous people with a link to Scotland such as James Watt and Robert Burns. This central square is in turn close to Queen Street central station, and is the very heart of the city. It is also where you can find more information about cultural events, and book tickets for sights and performances.
Following along Cathedral Street brings you in minutes to Glasgow Cathedral, the oldest and largest church in the city, a superb example of Scottish Gothic architecture regarded as an outstanding architectural achievement. With its pointed crossing tower it makes a striking feature of Glasgow’s skyline.
Glasgow Tower, River Clyde and Gallery of Modern Art
The Glasgow Tower, an even more prominent landmark on the south bank of the Clyde, is the highest building in Scotland, ascending 127 metres high. The whole tower has an aerofoil shape and can rotate through a full circle; it’s regarded as a masterpiece of engineering and construction.
The River Clyde runs past the foot of the tower and not far from our affordable hotel. At night, its skilfully illuminated bridges make for a great photo.
Any fan of modern art will make a beeline for the Gallery of Modern Art which has permanent and temporary exhibitions on various themes, and in contrast to most of its peers, shows mainly works by living artists.
Come to our Motel One to make the most of this centre of music and design on the Clyde – We and the city are waiting to welcome you.
