Excellent location for the SSE Hydro arena, only a short walk away. The house is situated on an attractive crescent and is easily recognised by the plants around the door. It was very quiet and peaceful, we were woken by blackbirds singing! Suzan was very friendly and helpful and provided a more than adequate breakfast in our room. The house... More

We stayed here for one night in March when visiting Glasgow for a comedy gig. We walked from the centre treatment of Glasgow for probably 30- 40 mins to get to the Flower House but we could have used the subway. The house is old fashioned and charming, with a huge collection of all sorts of antique furniture, rich fabrics,... More

We stayed at The Flower House to attend a concert at the Hydro in October '14. A warm welcome was given by Susan and we were shown to our twin room downstairs. Accommodation and shared bathroom were kept spotless throughout our stay. We were welcome to use the Kitchen area next to the room for tea/coffee making facilities. Beds were... More

I stayed in the flower house for a couple of days during the conference. It was great time staying there. I was anxious at the beginning, because you can't always rely on the reviews. BUT! It was actually great! I would say the real house outside or inside looks even nicer than the pictures! I also worried about the coldness... More

Susan and Ian are friendly and helpful hosts. Comfortable room in which we were brought excellent breakfasts. Small kitchen where we could prepare food and store things. Wifi available. Located in a quiet street not far from the station, SECC, University, and restaurants in Argyll Street.

I have stayed at the beautiful Flower House several times (most recently in March 2014) and I am counting the days until I return -- it is truly a gem, and Susan and Ian are the most wonderful hosts! The Flower House is on a quiet street but located very conveniently between the West End (University of Glasgow, Kelvingrove Park... More

We stayed here about a month ago while there to attend my sister's wedding. I'm so glad we chose this place! It has a unique quiet charm and being served breakfast in our rooms was a beautiful luxury. The caretaker was extremely informative and very generous with her advice about how to get around which was very helpful for us... More

Almost reluctant to write a review in case too many people find out about this lovely place! Warm, comfortable rooms with character, so different from anonymous hotel rooms. Breakfast in our rooms, white linen tablecloth and more than we needed in terms of breakfast. A kitchen where we could make a cup of tea, or, if desired, heat up something... More

I attended a conference held at SECC last September. From the airport, you can take Bus 500 & get off the 3rd stop (Grand Central Station). Take the train and get off at the Exhibition Center; walk along Minerva St and turn left at St Vincent Crescent. The Flower House was about 10-15 min walk to SECC, with a covered... More

We stayed for one night, and I can say that Ian and Susan are very welcoming. We stayed in the "ground" floor bedroom (the floor you walk in on from the road). This room was amazing, a unique but very relaxing decor. It felt very much like being at home with the parents, without the stress of your parents asking... More
