I know Glasgow very well, so I knew this hotel's location was good for Kelvingrove & the West End. I had never stayed at the Argyll before and would normally choose a higher grade of accommodation, but it was a last minute booking and I got a great rate. I was travelling alone and stayed for one weekend night at... More

This is my second year staying at the Argyll. Last year I stayed in the hotel part and this year I stayed in the Guest House across the street. I didn't really see a difference. They were both very comfortable and clean. The location is right outside The University of Glasgow in the trendy West End of the city. I... More

I was very disappointed in the room we stayed in here. It was on the basement level and felt bleak and dated, dingy and depressing. Barely enough room to walk around, dated and shabby décor, stuffy and nearly airless. Tiny full sized bed. The window in our room only opened a crack of a few inches but I guess that... More

Stayed as a couple for 2 nights in April. Our room was located in the annex (guest house) across the road from the main hotel. Room was dated and in need of modernising but was clean and had the basic things expected. Beds were average, shower was clean but not very powerful. Room was cleaned through the day. Reception staff... More

We stayed at the Guest House in 2013. Have stayed there before and although a bit rough round the edges it was cheap and near to my daughter who we were visiting. The stairs are steep and narrow which is not good for my 80+ year old mother. On this occasion the residents of the flats behind the hotel were... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your feedback. It clearly states on our website that there is no lift in the guest house. Guests are always offered to upgrade to the hotel which is directly opposite side of the road and has a lift to all levels. If we had known that you were accompanying someone with mobility issues then we... More

This guesthouse is a little off the beaten track, but we found it was in a good location for the gig we were attending. Promising from the main building, but disappointing from the moment we got into the guesthouse. It was drab with very few facilities, we needed the vending machine for water late on a night and it was... More

My husband and I (in our 60s) stayed at the guest house but our friends stayed at the hotel across the street. We paid £30 less and had a much bigger very pleasant room, but had to cross the busy road each day for breakfast or to get to the reception area. We also had to negotiate some steep narrow... More

ArgyllHotel, General Manager at Argyll Guest House, responded to this review

Dear Guest Thank you for your feedback. As you mentioned in your email guest house is our budget accommodation and the reason why its cheaper is because you need to cross over the street for breakfast which is at the main hotel and there is no lift or elevator. The rate clearly reflects this if you are looking for the... More

Good: good service and nice rooms at a very reasonable price - Bad: some traffic noise as you would expect on a major access route to the city - great transport links and on street parking round the corner.

Dear Guest Thank you for you comments. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately nothing can be done about the traffic noise but if you request a room at the back they much quieter. Kind Regards B Bashir General Manager More
