Can anyone believe it’s October tomorrow? This year seems to have been a blur of 30th birthdays, weddings, babies and just general busyness. And this weekend just past was no exception as we packed up the Mini on Saturday morning, bound for Glasgow for a 30th birthday party.
As usual, I hit Glasgow and any navigation skills I thought I once had clearly decided they were staying in Edinburgh for the weekend, as we got lost and found more times in a half an hour window than I care to remember. But when we did finally arrive, we were welcomed with homemade cupcakes, freshly brewed coffee and white, crisp bed linen. No, we hadn’t arrived at a friend’s house, but at Grasshoppers Hotel, our chosen place to rest our heads for the night.
I can’t recommend this penthouse hotel enough. A collection of 30 individually decorated rooms with a home-from-home ethos, we felt welcome, comfortable and had the added benefits of a beautifully designed room. Oh, and did I mention the cupcakes on arrival?
As you can see from my pictures, our room was stunning. I love grey and yellow together anyway, but the tones that Grasshopper used complemented each other perfectly, and left me feeling inspired to redecorate. I may well have just found a new colour palate for our spare bedroom.
Oh, and I have to mention the bathroom. It’s in the pod picture below, and illustrated how you could make an en-suite work without having an additional room to play with.
Before we left on Sunday morning, we enjoyed a hearty breakfast; sausages and eggs were an order for some morning-after-the-night-before treatment, but if you were feeling more virtuous, toast, muesli, fruit and yoghurt were also on offer.
I think I’ve been pretty clear, Grasshoppers is a great hotel and if you need somewhere central to stay in Glasgow, this is the perfect place to call home for the night.
