The hotel was very close to the main shops which was handy. The staff were quite friendly and the breakfast was reasonable. We stayed in the room in the basement (20) and it smelled absolutely disgusting. A horrible musty and moudly smell that stuck to your clothes. I felt physically sick every time I entered. The room itself was very... More

This is not the poshest hotel in Glasgow, but probably the friendliest. Basic room with comfortable bed and very basic furnishing. Bathroom ditto. hot water a bit of a lottery but shower worked fine. Good breakfast but breakfast room is a bit small so occasional queuing ..... None of these shortcomings bothered us as everyone is so good natured, maybe... More

I stayed here for 2 nights whilst at a wedding on Loch Lomond. Not ideal for my trip- no full length mirror or plugs near the mirror above the sink. Saying that, it was clean. My room, I was told, was one of the smallest. And it really was! It had a single bed and a dresser in it and... More

My latest stay was for 5 B&B nights (16th to 21st July) whilst campaigning for YES Scotland around Glasgow. Thanks to the super service provided with kindness and courtesy by Karan and his delightful colleagues, I was able to benefit from an excellent base from which to launch my campaign. Over many years Alba Lodge has become my Glasgow 'home'.... More

My friend and I booked the Alba Lodge for one night as a place to lay out head after a night out at the Hydro. Perfect! Both Indy and Karan couldn't be more helpful and accommodating with any request. Very central, although people are correct about the stairs ... there are quite a few. Rooms were basic but very clean... More

This room was cozy / small, but perfect for what we needed. Location was great, easy walking to West End (which we wanted to explore) and to our bus stop (which we had to get to with heavy backpacks). The reception team was very friendly and accommodating. They responded to my email requests on a timely manner. We booked something... More

When we walked in the door, we weren't sure if we wanted to stay or not. It's an old house converted to a B&B. We were glad we stayed. The rooms, while small, are clean and comfortable. We had an ensuite room and the bathroom was spotless. The shower is modern with an on-the-wall hot water heater - wish we... More

Arrived at a suitable time and felt as though we had just arrived as the previous visitors had left. Entered into a crammed and un-hoovered room. It included an en-suite that we paid an extra £21 for which had no hot water coming out of the shower, so forced to use communal shower and refused a refund of the £21... More

This b&b is fine if you just want to get your head down. Average place' average rooms. Getting to it though' thats the problem if you don't drive. Be prepared to do some walking.It sits on the top of a huge steep hill. Once you reach the place you then have loads of steps to climb up to reach the... More
