Excellent value for money in this quiet pleasant corner of Glasgow. In the past we have stayed in the Briers Road area, but at graduation time this is impossible and we were very lucky to find Barrisdale. It is a little further out but it is very easy to get into the West End and the city centre on very... More

I could not have asked for a better experience. Ron was a great host and very helpful. The room was comfortable with plenty of room. Loved the breakfast served in my room. The location was very close to transportation so easy to get around.

We really enjoyed our visit and hope to be back. A great place to stay with a great host. The house itself is fantastic and has everything you could need. Breakfast was lovely and we were able to come and go as we pleased. All in all a great base for a trip to Glasgow.

An excellent place to stay in Glasgow's leafy west end. It may seem a little out of the way on the map view but it has excellent links into the city. The rooms are characterful and comfortable (look out for the guide book of Glasgow's public toilets). Ron is ever cheerful, attentive and a delight to chat with. I heartily... More

Ron is hilarious! He's chatty, funny, attentive, and an all-round amazing host. The house is nicely decorated, clean, cosy, and genuinely pleasant to be in. The prices are great, the continental breakfast was substantial, and the location is great if you're looking for a quiet area away from the bustle of the city centre. It's only a short walk to...

Excellent recent stay at this lovely guesthouse. All other contributors have really said it all. Our large bay windowed bedroom was so comfortable and spacious. It was well decorated with lovely ship themed prints on the walls. Nice touches included good quality soaps/shampoos etc in the ensuite bathroom, local guide books and a powerful hair dryer available for guests use... More

We were serves a lovely continental breakfast each morning in our room and Ron our host was genial and informative. Our room was really lovely... More

We only stayed in this lovely guest house for one night, but we enjoyed it a lot. We stayed in a triple room (two single beds and one pull out sofa) and found it big enough. The pull out sofa is a bit in the way, but you can always fold it back during the day. For two people it... More

We staid here three days. The house is beautifull, near the train station (ten minutes walking), all clean and perfectly arranged. Ron is a marvelous person, all time ready to help you, and with more conversation. The breakfast in the room is perfect. Thank's for all Ron from Javi and Anna

We have stayed twice in Barrisdale guest house (another time for a week) and let Ron pamper us. The victorian style big room in their beautiful house is excellent even for a family of four with such a lovely decoration. It's also quite exclusive to have a breakfast in one's room-and what a breakfast! Ron is such a friendly and... More
