The Swallow is located a 10 min walk to downtown and a 10 minute walk to the Salt Hill neighborhood. The rooms are a bit small but very welcoming. Each room has it's own bathroom, with hot showers. The owners are very nice and engaging. They were very friendly and it was fun talking with them. Patricia puts out a... More

Friendly desk staff, and clean interior. Spacious rooms. Location is a bit out of the way to Glasgow city, but my mate and I managed to walk comfortably to nearby eateries. Breakfast is impressive: free (included in the room cost); full English/Scottish breakfast is available. Affordable and good value for money.

We stayed in The Swallow Hotel during the Commonwealth Games. Although it was reasonably expensive @ £108/night, it was cheap compared to other Glasgow hotels during the Games. It had good parking, was clean and we had a friendly and efficient check in/out. Breakfast was perfectly adequate and again service was very friendly. For use as a base, it was... More

We used the hotel during the commonwealth games and the Swallow hotel served a purpose as a base as it was close to venues we had tickets for. The place needs a lot of work as the dining room ceiling was dripping water into buckets scattered around the floor. The rooms were in need of ripping out and refitting. Staff... More

The Swallow is currently (September 2014) being operated by receivers, which may mean that its status will change in the near future. But at present it offers good value for a short stay, moderately close to the centre of Glasgow. It's terminally tired and feels quite run down, yet is safe and most things still work... My room faced on... More

We stayed for 1 night for a concert nearby. It is clear upon check in that the hotel is being operated by receivers which explains the rundown conditions and poor state the place is in. Staff were all friendly which is a credit to them as they are probably all about to be made redundant. Outside of the building is... More

Stayed here on Saturday with my boyfriend as we were going to a concert at Bellahouston Park. Room was a good size, although the bathroom could do with updating. Breakfast was excellent. Plenty of parking spaces were available.
