Staycation's are the new vacations

Chasing the sun may seem like the pinnacle of your Winter, but what about all the things you will be missing if you venture too far from home?

Now we're not knocking winter sun, not at all, but sometimes taking a vacation in your own city will give you that much needed pick me up. Especially if you treat yourself to a little break straight after the Christmas party! There are plenty of things we always want to do but never get round to, booking yourself into a hotel & acting like you are on vacation is the perfect opportunity to do those things you keep putting off! Take a painting class, spend the day at a Christmas market, go for a fizzy brunch or just go shopping!

If you want to act like a real tourist in your own city we recommend taking a tour or going to see a exhibition at a museum. The Glasgow Tour Bus is surprisingly informative, just remember to wrap up warm!

The Blythwood hotel in Glasgow is one of the most beautiful in the city. Boasting a spa, events rooms, a cinema & a cocktail lounge it will leave you wanting nothing. Oh did we mention the decor is breathtaking?

Treat yourself to a dinner in the salon or pop out and wander to one of the award winning restaurants Glasgow has to offer. If you feel like drinks Cocktails in the Blythswood are a must, we recommend the rally fizz for a chic start to the night and they have a kings ransom in whiskey choices for your nightcap.

The morning after a night on the tiles is always a difficult one and that's where the Blythswood really shines. Relax in bed with one of the many magazines in your room, head down to breakfast for a hearty full Scottish fry up (vegetarian option available) and then pop into the spa for a truly relaxing and hangover curing morning. Doesn't get much better than that does it?
