We've been to Glasgow before and just needed a place for 2 nights while attending meetings. Nothing else was available for less than £100 per night this past June so we ended up at the Seton Guest House for 2 nights. Under these circumstances we made do with this place but if we had to do it again, would definitely book a proper hotel as this place calls itself a B&B but in fact is more in league with a backpacker's hostel.
Although it was a bit scary to walk in and be greeted by the pungent odours of dogs and cigarette smoke (enough to hold my breath... and I have a dog), we were relieved to find that our room (on the 2nd floor) was both clean and odour-free, and to be fair the mattress was decently firm. For that reason I would say the place is passable as a last resort, but definitely if you are coming to Glasgow as a tourist you want to look for something in the West End.
We took a look at the windowless breakfast room in the basement, but the dampness, smell and overall grimy feel were more than enough for us to skip breakfast both days.
One last item to note: on the day we were checking out, someone started banging on our door at 10:30am. We let them know that we were still sleeping (jet lag) and then the banging resumed 10 minutes later. When we opened the door we were curtly informed that check out was 10:30am, a new one for me. Again, this only served to underscore the overall feel of the place, more of a hostel rather than a bed and breakfast run by welcoming hosts.
