We spent two nights in a twin room at the Kelvin hotel. I think we got allocated a bigger room than we reserved (two double beds instead of two single) which was excellent. The location (Glasgow's West-End) is spot on and the double Georgian house is a really nice surrounding. It does have a budget hotel characteristic but in a...

This hotel was such a find! Most of the hostels in Glasgow had not such great reviews so I was looking for budget accommodation that was nicer than back packers. I had a single room with a sink and had access to a lovely bathroom. The hotel is in the great west end area with loads of restaurants and bars...

Stayed here for 2 nights paying £76 a night for a double room with an ensuite. Price wise this is equivalent to a Premier Inn but the comparison was not favourable to the Kelvin. Our room was very dreary and basic with a low ceiling and a stagnant aroma. The initial impression on entering the room was not a hotel...

This hotel is very basic but in a good location for the subway and various bars / amenities in the area. The double room was simple but clean and also included tea and coffee making facilities. There was an issue with the hot water in the morning, but after complaining and then going back to the room it appeared to...

Stayed here with my husband not really what we were looking for.

We have stayed at the Kelvin 3 times and will revisit again as it is incredibly reasonable and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We have stayed on the 1st and 2nd floors and have never been disappointed with the rooms which have all had an ensuite. Good firm beds and a varied selection for breakfasts too.

Very well placed and as long as you are happy with a shared bathroom and a small double for £45 then this is what you want. Breakfast was good and the bed comfy, the room was small but considering it is in the heart of Glasgow it is value for money.

We were searching for a B&B at Glasgow near the Glasgow University. We found Hotel Kelvin with positive reviews at Trip Advisor. The location and prices were attractive.
