II stayed one night for a business trip to the University of Glasgow. Really nice hotel, nice atmosphere, and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go again if I'll have the chance.

I arrived at about 7pm (£8 a taxi from the bus station to the hotel) and I was welcomed by the friendly owner – he already knew who I was as I was the last guest to arrive. My room was the one looking towards the street with the half-hexagonal window (forgot the number). The room: - Large, warm, cosy,... More

The Kirklee Hotel is in the perfect location in the West End of Glasgow. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood just off Byres Road, it's a five minute walk to the underground station and all of the cafes. It's right across from the Botanical Gardens and about 10 minutes away from the University of Glasgow. The owner is very welcoming and... More

This is a good B and B with a great location and good value. I'd happily recommend it and the lovely breakfast brought to the room. Parking was easy and we were warmly welcomed. It's an experience as well as accommodation, with interesting artwork etc.

It's a few years since our last visit to Kirklee and it was slightly disappointing. Like other reviewers it really could benefit from a little upgrading to perk up its tired rooms. Our welcome was warm and friendly and we like the novelty of enjoying breakfast overlooking the quiet square at the rear. Location is also a positive and although... More

An ideal base for visiting Glasgow. The hop on hop off bus stops just a short walk away and we parked outside the hotel for 2 days free. There are some beautiful houses to look at on the way to the bus stop and the botanical gardens as well. Some good eating places on Byres road which is nearby.

Great hotel for a weekend tour to Glasgow. Douglas and family makes this place very cosy and pleasant. 😃 The old Victorian style house feeling - will allow you a traditional feeling of joy.😃 Can be recommended😃

My husband and I enjoyed our stay here very much. The hotel is housed in a beautiful building in a quiet neighborhood in the West End and offers free breakfast and wi-fi. The wi-fi was a bit spotty at night but worked well throughout the day. Shopping, restaurants, antiques, nightlife, and just about anything else you want, are only about... More

The Kirklee is housed in a beautiful red-sandstone terrace in a peaceful residential quarter, yet only a ten-minute walk from the bustling Byres Road and Hill head subway station. (Even closer to the Great Western Road and the number 6 bus to the city centre.) Not much has changed in these buildings in over a century, which gives the Kirklee... More

Unfortunately I have to agree with some of the previous constructive reviews on here. Beds so soft you felt like you were sleeping on water, very dated rooms (we had one of the rooms at the top of the house) decked out in 70's furniture (not antique like it claims it wants to aim to do). This wasn't a cheap... More
