Stayed in 1883 for many weeks at the start of this year. Was very far from home but Bill and Lorna made me feel very welcome. Over the next few weeks they became good friends and their warmth and help to me in many ways was so welcome. For that I will be forever thankful. On a more practical note... More

Stayed in Glasgow for a couple of nights over New Year's Eve. We were very pleased with the 1883 Guest House. The room was comfortable and Bill is a very friendly and helpful host. The breakfast is very good and includes Bill's homemade bread and marmalade. All this for a very reasonable price. I'm sure I'll stay there again.

We had a wonderful time at 1883 - it's a lovely house in a superb location (2 mins. walk from a train station that takes you to city center), and Bill is a great host - gave us a lot of tips about the city that made our short visit really really great. Plus, the price is fair and the... More

I travel every holiday season for the past 4 years and found this hidden gem. This is the only place I stay while I am in town. The host are wonderful people. The bedrooms are nice and clean along with the bathroom. They even have a fridge and microwave to use! The hospitality from this couple has kept me coming... More

I found this B&B to be the worst I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in many all over the world. The entrance not inviting, the neighbourhood scary (with youths shooting missiles from ? Fake guns) Children screaming at night. Light on in hall way all night which made sleeping difficult. Bedroom and bathroom dirty, dusty, sub optimal.... More

I am really sorry you found so much wrong with our guest house and that you did not choose to share any of this when you were here. As for the noise, I am afraid this is a period of celebration for Eid which does produce some merriment.As for the light in the hall - there is a switch, or... More

or possibly 4th? almost hate to write a good review lest it be even more difficult to get a booking. lovely flat, lovely hosts, great location outside the city centre, our home away from home when in Scotland's first (only?) city.

Spent only one night before heading off to the isle of Skye. Bill, Lorna, Nadia and Charlie the dog made us feel very comfortable in our jet lagged state -- beds were wonderful, room had a high ceiling and a big window overlooking the street. The bathroom across the hall had great water pressure for a refreshing shower. Parking our... More

This B&B is in easy striking distance of all of the best tourist places of interest in Glasgow. 5 minutes ( frequent train service ) from city centre and all it's fabulous attractions. No nonsense, value accommodation with brilliant hosts, Bill and Lorna ( not to forget Charlie the dog). No hesitation in thoroughly recommending 1883 as a great base... More

My family and I stayed here for a few weeks, everything was beyond our expectations! I have stayed in some fine hotels from the Ritz Carlton and beyond, this place is right up there with service and accommodations. The hosts were more than happy to make sure my family had everything we needed from directions to a variety of foods... More

The price is VERY reasonsable(45pds a night for the 2 of us), and the hosts helpful and pleasant! Breakfast simple but satisfying. I am a bit of a clean freak, so the bedroom was pretty good, but the bathroom wasn't up to our standard of clean ex. cob webs around the toilet/ hair/dirt on baseboards, grout out of the tile...
