We chose this location, because we wanted quiet, yet convenient hotel. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Douglas. He gave us a map to help us get around. We had no difficulty in finding restaurants or a food store to buy wine. The bus [#6 or #6A] were close by and took us to central Glasgow. We also used... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. We had a lovely stay here. A very quiet and peaceful location but also in very convenient walking distance to shops and the train station. This lovely guest house is very warm and cosy. The room was nice and spotless. Breakfast was brought to your room on a tray and was... More

We loved staying here as the access to the town was easy by train or by car. The host Doulas and Rosemary are very welcoming and the place has a special feel about it. The breakfast in your room is perfectly cooked and delivered on time to the minute!

We stayed during the Commonwealth Games. The Kirklee is in a good West End location, 10 minutes walk from the University (and a specialist ice cream parlour on Byers Road that we frequented regularly!) The owners are very friendly and the hotel is well run. We had a big room with a nice view; breakfast by the windows was delightful.... More

Kirklee Hotel is a wonderful B&B in the west side of Glasgow. It is walking distance to Byers Road, a great shopping and eating destination in the city. Also, one of the highlights of our trip was the Glasgow Botanic Gardens which included a wonderful Victorian greenhouse as well as a more recently built greenhouse. The host and staff were... More

The Kirklee is a fantastic place to stay. This was my third visit there and the first time I have brought my family. We had a large family room on the second floor that overlooked the gardens. As others have mentioned, Doug and company cannot do enough to help make your stay in Glasgow a pleasant one. Byres Road (a... More

This was a wonderful hotel in a great part of Glasgow...the West End. It's close to the Botanical Gardens and the University. It's also walking distance from Byres Rd, a veritable feast of great restaurants (The Ubiquitous Chip is a place you must go for delicious food and great service). Breakfast was served in our room at the Kirklee, brought... More

Hyndland is an architecturally fascinating area of Glasgow to visit and the Kirklee creates a perfect base and atmosphere to enable this. Slightly disappointed not to get some balck pudding in my 'traditional scottish breakfast' but it's the sort of place they would have added if I had asked.

Doug and rosemary couldn't do enough for us. they were so helpful. The house is lovely, very traditional. You get breakfast of your choice taken to your room, there is a lovely airy large living room. I would certainly go again and recommend it highly to friends and family.

We spent 2 nights here. Absolutely loved the room. We were on the 3rd floor and the room was huge. We faced the front gardens. Breakfast was brought to our room which was a nice change of having to dress and leave the room. The walk to Brynes Rd. was not too far a walk to catch the hop on... More
