Glasgow Airport to hotel tips

Four of us will be landing at Glasgow airport and need to go to Glasgow Hotel to lock our bags up as we will have 4+ hours before we meet our tour guide.
1. We would like to have breakfast in a chapel we heard about, is this in walking distance?
2. Will we be able to take the bus with one bag and backpack each on the bus?
If we take a taxi will they charge us each 25GBP or is that for all of us and what is the best transport to the hotel?
3. sights or short trips close to the hotel you would recommend, our tour starts at 2:30 with a tour of central Glasgow, drive around George Square, visit the Provand's Lordship then dinner.
We will probably have a lot of free time after dinner so we are hoping there will be shops open after 5pm.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, we want to see as much as possible but still be sane.
Thank you in advance for any tips.

Glasgow city centre will still be open well into the evening.

Taxi prices are per car.

As for the chapel, you may need to be a bit more specific! A lot of chapels are in walking distance of a lot of Glasgow hotels! ;-)

I have forgotten the name but it was a church converted and serves a great breakfast and it's not far from the airport.

Thank you

If it is not far from the airport, it is probably in Paisley in Renfrewshire. If the hotel is in Glasgow, this probably is not convenient. Do you have a name of the hotel? As far as I know there is no 'Glasgow Hotel' in Glasgow. You are more likely to get a Glasgow Hotel in Edinburgh and vice versa!

If you do go to Provand's Lordship, go out the front door, go down the hill less than 50 metres and you have one of the remaining Police Boxes in situ on UK roads. Aka, The Tardis.

Hi MC
We will be at the Glasgow City hotel.. I will be with a tour group but will write down your directions to the phone box wow would love a picture! I am so excited to visit Scotland, I have traced my family to the 15/1600's from Isle of Skye to Inverness.

Thanks for your time
