Hi Sian,

There's a Travel Inn and Travel Lodge within a few minutes walk of all the main venues plus numerous other hotels to cater for all tastes and budgets.

Anything within the M8 'bend' will be fairly near all the main venues.

Personally, having attended 'Celtic Connections' for 10 years and stayed in most of the available hotels, I now use the Ibis at 220 West Regent Street (just off Sauchiehall Street) phone 0141 225 6000 - good-sized rooms, comfortable, friendly staff, less than £50p.n. and less than 10 minutes walk from the Concert Hall and other main venues including The Piping Centre (a little further to The Fruitmarket but the Ibis is just 5 minutes walk from The Holiday Inn / Late Night Festival Club venue... usually the last venue you visit each night and the best venue for seeing the most artists in the shortest time).

Hope this is helpful. I see you're in Glasgow for the 'Showcase Scotland' weekend - if you've not been to 'Celtic Connections' before you'll love it - it's a great Festival.

Pete
