We stayed here to be near the university for a conference I attended. Only one of the luxury rooms were left. We have never stayed in such a marvelous room. You can change the lights (color, pulsing, etc) decorating the room and the bathtub. The breakfast was wonderful. I felt very comfortable leaving my daughter in the room while I...

I stayed here for a weekend with my family and we had a great experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the location is perfect and the rooms were just what we wanted. Somehow, Alamo manages to hit the perfect balance between comfort, luxury and still not being too much. And for a good price! Very happy about the...

The place itself is majestic, Just a stones throw from myself and my partners favourite place in Glasgow, Kelvingrove Art Gallery. Was slightly late upon arrival, As soon as we walked through the door a well dressed and extremely polite man greeted us and showed us around. Each thing you looked at was more impressive than the last and the...

Our room 2 was large, comfortable and quiet. We slept better than at home. The bathroom and shower were the best we have ever had anywhere. Breakfast with many choices for fruit, cereals, juice, yogurt as well as eggs, bacon, even vegetarian sausage and haggis. The location is next to Kevin Grove Park, close to the museum and Glasgow University,...

We stayed for one night and would certainly go back. Emma welcomed us warmly even though we arrived a bit early. On street parking was easy and cheap and we just walked back and forth into the centre of Glasgow from the guest house. The room was beautiful, clean, warm and comfortable. We really enjoyed the breakfast- great views over...
