This is a small bed and breakfast hotel which we chose because of its location and reasonable tariff. It is 10 minutes walk to the Kelvingrove museum and art gallery and 10 minutes by bus/taxi to the centre of Glasgow and there are good eateries in the vicinity. I stayed for 3 nights with my husband and adult son during...

This hotel is easily reached by bus 747 from the Airport. Just ask the driver to point it to you. Our driver was very helpful! The location of the hotel is very good. Close to numerous restaurants and just a short drive from all the shops. Our room was in the basement also but nicely decorated with tea/coffee facilities and...

Chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Scottish Exhibition Centre (SECC) - it is an easy fifteen minute walk. Good location generally - many restaurants in the area and Kelvingrove museum is a short walk away. 747 bus to the airport stops outside (this is a regular bus, not an express). Check-in was fine and our luggage was...

I stayed here for 3 mights. It's conveniently in the West End, which is great for food and bars. The SECC is only 10min walk which was ideal since I was there for a conference. The hotel was clean, service friendly and breakfast excellent. The double room was cozy and clean. Unfortunately, my room suffered a plumbing failure with a...

Make sure this is what you want. The price is reasonable, but the Kelvingrove Hotel is not a hotel by US standards. To me it is an average Scottish country inn. It has no elevator, no lock box in the room, no chain or deadbolt on the room door, and inadequate internet service. Breakfast is included, but no yogurt, cheese,...

OK but not as good as its rating, which I can only assume is a result of their offering a monthly prize draw to people who write Tripadvisor reviews! Not the worst place I've stayed at - convenient for tourist sights, friendly staff and a reasonably furnished room. The breakfasts are below average, as was the TV in the room,...

Was disappointed with this hotel given the positive reviews I had read. Yes, the reception was pleasant and we had no problems with parking, but our room was in the basement, facing the road, and was pretty noisy even during the night. The room was very small but fresh and clean, as was the bathroom. However, the cistern made a...

We arrived in Glasgow on the train from Edinbugh and didn't want to take a cab for 5 pounds so took the "HOHO" bus with luggage from the train station. Exit train station, turn left, walk to end of block, look for the big red buses. We rode the tour until we spotted the Kelvingrove Museum and then rang the...

We stayed in Kelvingrove Hotel for two nights before walking the West Highland Way. Staff at the reception was very friendly and always helpful. Our room, located in the basement but having a full window towards the garden, was clean but a bit small and in need of a refurbishment. The tapestry looked a bit worn off here and there...

I have stayed in the Kelvingrove several times. It changed owners in May. It's now owned by the hotel across the road. It used to be a friendly, family-run hotel, with excellent breakfasts. It's now just another average hotel. The breakfast was really disappointing. Little choice, coffee from a machine. And in the room, the shower was barely functioning and...
