Self-catered Glasgow city centre accommodation
Located in the city centre and consisting of 99 studios and apartments, Fraser Suites Glasgow offers an alternative to hotel accommodation. Guests can enjoy a short break or an altogether longer stay in a self-catered environment that offers plenty of privacy as well as convenient access to many of the citys popular destinations.
Each apartment or studio includes a fully equipped kitchenette. Here guests will find everything essential for a self-sufficient stay; cooker with hob, microwave, refrigerator, toaster, kettle, cutlery and crockery. Certain apartments also feature a dishwasher. As such these apartments are suitable for those staying in the city for a prolonged period either on business or during relocation.
Bathrooms include bath/shower, WC, and wash basin as well as towels, bathrobes, and hairdryer. The living area features television with Freeview channels and a DVD player, as well as an iPod/MP3 dock. Bedrooms are light and airy and include duvets, bed sheets and a radio alarm clock. An electronic safe is also available to protect those valuables. Corporate guests are able to make good use of a comfortable work desk, high speed internet, and direct dial telephone.
Whilst guests at Fraser Suites Glasgow may enjoy the home-away-from-home feel of the apartments, they still benefit from hotel-like services. A daily maid service ensures that rooms remain tidy, whilst a 24 hour reception and security service means that guests are never at a loss for information. The hotel fitness suite, self-service laundry and luggage room are all free of charge, whilst a DVD library and selection of daily newspapers can be found in the lobby.
Breakfast is served daily whilst guests are also entitled to a 20% discount at several local restaurants, perfect for those evening meals. Guests can also enjoy exclusive packages at the affiliated Radcliffes Beauty Salon and Spa. The establishment also offers a full laundry and dry cleaning service at an extra cost as well as shuttle buses and car rentals.
Perhaps more importantly than any of its amenities, these apartment blocks allow for easy access to Glasgows city centre attractions. Argyle Street, one of the citys busiest shopping areas, is just around the corner. Here visitors are able to shop in high street retail stores whilst still admiring the historic and cultural architecture on display.
The surrounding area, known as the Cultural Quarter, is also scattered with museums, galleries and other points of interest. Amongst the establishments to be found here are the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA), Sharmanka Kinetic Museum and Gallery, the Scottish Youth Theatre, and St. Andrews Cathedral.
Other features of the city that prove popular with visitors include the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC), Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow Cathedral (known as High Kirk, St. Kentigerns or St. Mungos), and the Barrowlands, a large concert venue.
The city is home to the two largest clubs in Scottish football, Rangers and Celtic, who have an intense rivalry. Golf fanatics can delight in a large number of courses that are littered throughout the greater city area, all of which are accessible from the Fraser Suites Glasgow.
