    Never been to Glasgow in my life and I know nothing about the airport itself.

    Is there a hotel attached to the airport?
    Is there a carpark right next to the terminals so that you can walk from the car to check in?

    Would love to know anything about this airport really so, if you have flown from Glasgow, please let me know about your experience.

    Thank you
    Flights were a LOT cheaper from Glasgow than Manchester so it looks like we'll be using Glasgow airport next trip
    Won't give me a price for the short stay car park but that may change nearer the time.

    Thanks Ann
    It's a 3 hour 5 min drive to Manchester and a 3hour 13 min drive to Glasgow so not much in it - apart from the cheaper flights

    our flights were around 500 saving from Glasgow - we are lucky there are flights out of Glasgow on the precise dates we want.
