    Lovely, traditional building”

    We stayed for a city break from rural Oban and we found the staff incredibly helpful and friendly. We stayed in both nights for dinner and they were happy to assist when receiving takeaways. Everything was very comfortable and, although the bathroom was supposed to be shared, we had sole use of one because of the positioning of the rooms. Just a tiny little improvement and that would be to clean the dust which had gathered on the extractor fan in the shower room next to the dining room. Also, the parking can work out quite expensive as it works on the meter system from 8am to 10pm everyday. It would not deter me from staying there again. Thank you for a fantastic stay!

    Amazing value”

    We booked 2 small double rooms with shared bathroom for 1 night as an overnight stay for a friends wedding. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Glasgow for a longer trip but would go for an en-suite room for convenience. The bed was very comfortable and had a TV and tea/coffee making facilities. We booked a parking space for £5 which is recommended as there are only 4 on site. Cooked breakfast was really good with a good choice for £5. The staff were all very friendly and helpful Cannot recommend highly enough.

    The best part was the staff. They are super friendly and helpful. The stay then felt less like staying at a hotel and more like staying with family. The rooms are simple but comfortable and have everything you need. The breakfast was more varied than many other hotels I have stayed in.

    Really good vale, good location”

    We only had a 2-night stay, so a budget hotel was what we wanted. We chose a basic double room, shared bathroom, and it was fine for us. The double bed (Room 4) was on the small side, so if you're very tall I would check before booking. The Kelvin is virtually next to the Botanic Gardens, with frequent bus services to the City Centre and a short walk away from Kelvinbridge tube station. We were surprised to find, though, that a bus ticket to the Centre costs £2.30 and the tube a flat rate of only £1.70. There is an assortment of eateries & shops in the neighbourhood. Our room, although below street level, was very quiet. The breakfasts are very good value, with cereals, fruit, yoghurts, bread/toast/croissants buffet and also a cooked meal to order if you want. Billy was a marvellous host, very courteous and professional. If you want a basic place to sleep for a short break. I recommend this hotel.

    Very good stay”

    We had a double ensuite room at the top floor, which was very nice and totally quite. The heating was a bit hard to handle (either too warm or too cold) but beside that we really liked it. There was a good (full english) breakfast included which was promptly served. As the price of the room was rather cheap for Glasgow we have been very positively surprised about the amount of service and comfort we got for it. The area is not super central, but nevertheless offers a lot of sights that are in walking distance. There are also some really nice options for eating and drinking closeby. Overall we can highly recommend staying here.
