Brett Primrose is a care worker at the Royal Blind School in Edinburgh, as well as a referee for Scottish Rugby. As a birthday treat, Brett took his wife to see comedian Sarah Millican at the SEC Armadillo in June, staying the night just a few minutes’ walk away at Village Glasgow.
A great first impression
“This is the first time we’ve visited Village, and I was really impressed. We’ve stayed at plenty of other chain hotels over the years, and Village Glasgow is just so much nicer. We loved the big open areas downstairs, and the room was great. We did upgrade to a Club Room, but the price difference wasn’t too much and I really appreciated the full Sky HD package, as I was following the golf at the time. The breakfast menu is great too - everything was top quality and really fresh.
Room to venue in minutes
“The location is perfect for events at the SSE Hydro and the SEC, as it’s just a short walk over the footbridge to the venue. It’s also an easy walk to the bars and restaurants in Finnieston, or into the city centre. We didn’t have much spare time on this visit, but we did manage to get in some shopping at Braehead. The gig was great by the way - I bought the tickets because my wife loves Sarah Millican, but after seeing her live, I’m definitely a fan too!
I’ve already started planning my next visit - this time to Village Aberdeen with my son, to see the rugby.”
Not just for the show
Just a few minutes’ walk across the river from the SSE Hydro and the SEC, Village Glasgow is in the perfect location if you’re off to a gig or attending a conference. A few steps beyond is the buzzing restaurant and bar strip of Finnieston, while the city-centre shops are a short walk or taxi ride away. And right on the doorstep of Village Glasgow, you’ll find the amazing Science Centre, the Transport Museum and Tall Ship, and the BBC and STV studios.
