      Historical Traveler Reviews Kelvingrove Hotel Glasgow

      Great Service - Nice Hotel


      Went down to sunny glasgow with a few friends to see a gig, the staff were very friendly the hotel was great and in response to a review i just read -nothing smelled like tomato soup ;-)

      The bathroom facilitys were fine and clean,

      I'd go again... in fact they might see me there soon!

      Wonderful, will be back again and again


      This is a fantastic hotel in the heart of Glasgow. Clean, warm and welcoming. The staff are helpful and go out of their way to make your stay extra special. I hate being away from home but I felt comfortable and relaxed during my stay and we will definately be back again. Thanks to the owners for making us feel so welcome.

      Shame about the bathroom


      Lovely dining room & breakfast, friendly staff. Room needs updating & bathroom was small, smelly, crumbly & not very clean.

      A Treasure


      As a frequent traveller I was absolutely delighted with my stay at the Kelvingrove. Great location, great staff, great value....I'll be back!

      A friendly and clean hotel


      An immaculately clean and pleasant family run hotel that is situated halfway between the city centre and Byres Road. It is set in an ideal location if you are fit enough to cope with the 15 minute walk in either direction (and along the way you get the opportunity to admire many of Glasgow's marvelous variety of buildings). For those who are not so energetic there is a frequent bus service stop nearby and plenty of taxis. The cost of a taxi to the city centre is on average 3.50 to 4.00.



      The Kelvingrove was recommended to us. We said that we were looking for a romantic place to stay and Kelvingrove was supposed to be romantic.

      Well, it's not. It's old, it's dusty, it's rusty, it's not very clean and the whole place looks very worn-out. There was a strange smell of tomato soup throug the whole place upstairs and downstairs one could hardly breathe because of the thick cigarette smell.

      I would definately NOT recommend this place.

      And I feel sorry for the very nice staff. They are very friendly and helpfull. Pity they have to work in this old rubbish.

      Superb service and a charming place to stay


      Myself and my husband were joined in Glasgow by our 19 year old daughter (who is about to enrole at the Glasgow School of Art).

      We were luck enough to book into the charming Kelvingrove Hotel. The family owners took real care of us all and made us feel incredibly welcome throughout our stay with them. The hotel is sited close to excellent Glasgow bars and eating places and the hotel reception were kind enough to recommend and book suitable places for us - we were never proved wrong.

      The rooms are totally spotless and the Scottish breakfast delicious if a little filling!, We have already booked up to stay (this time for longer) at the Kelvingrove for October and our family will continue to recommend this hotel.

      The best service I have received


      our friends had stayed at the Kelvingrove Hotel before and had raved about the service and the friendly attiture of the staff. I am glad to say that we were not let down - the family owners were extremely attentive and charming and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were totally spotless and the breakfast was extremely hearty. We have stayed in European hotels twice the price of the Kelvingrove, never with the same attention to detail or genuinely friendly service - such as explaining where the best places to eat and drink were, booking them and

      You would be a fool to stay in a chain hotel, when there are independant ones this good in Glasgow.

      Big fan of the Kelvingrobe


      I've travelled from Canada the last 2 summers, and stayed both times at the Kelvingrove. My room was always meticulously cleaned, all bed linens, curtains, etc. sparkling white.The concierges and wait staff were extra courteous---they even remembered me as I walked through the door on the second summer! As I came and went they always took time to inquire how my day went or where I was going.I plan to visit Glasgow again, and will book the Kelvingrove. It's nicely located on Sauchiehall Street, an easy walk to the downtown yet still near to a local park, art galleries, museums, etc.Price-wise it's about mid-range of other hotels in the area---while I could find a cheaper place I go back for the service and the nice rooms.

      ... called Castle Campbell and is in a town called Dollar. Now Castle Campbell is hard to find, you park in the lot (no view of the castle here) and walk up a hill, down a hill, up a hill, oh wait your first glimpse through the trees. Then you continue up a hill and then back down a hill and poof! there's a castle. The views are beautiful with steep hills behind, the sound of a nearby waterfall, the trees and forests surrounding it. Built in the early 1400's it came into possession ...

      ... Not just a flight of stairs, but a tight, winding, steep stair case.

      It is rumoured that the buildling was deisgned by a deisgner of prisons, and I am inclined to believe it. Pokey small bedrooms, a small space masquerading as a lounge/dining room and burgular squirrels made for a very interesting first week. The shower felt like it was a converted broom cupboard - I couldn't even stand up straight - and it is equip with a shower head on a 60 second timer - ...

      ... Then, it has a pink and purple windowpane plaid. It’s fun yet formal at the same time and I’ve never seen anything like it so I had to get it! My description doesn’t do it justice and you’re probably imagining something very silly looking but trust me, it’s an exquisite coat and I’ve gotten so many compliments from strangers on the street when I wore it yesterday.

      Day 3 was very laidback. I ...

We made it to Glasgow on Tuesday afternoon as showed up to our hostel right before check in, so we ran to the grocery store and grabbed some food to make for lunch! Our hostel that we stayed in was HUGE, it might as well have been a hotel! There was a massive ...

Now John is a really smart man because after doing all this BB tour site seeing and knowing we has three girls with us he played his trump card. He showed the girls where the best shopping mall in Glasgow is and us four boys popped off to a coffee shop for hot chocolates and eats. Hey everyone was a winner. It was great to see David my 9 year old teach John (age ...
