We stayed at the Kelvin Hotel the weekend of the ACDC gig. The hotel was really nice, we found it had everything we needed so well worth the money. The room was a good size and spotlessly clean. We had a shared bathroom and were aware of this on booking, but this wasn't an issue. The continental breakfast was included... More

wasn't ensuite. We got offered an ensuite room for almost double the price. We refused the offer. There was only one,towel. The sink in the bedroom had no hot water. We raised this with the receptionist. She just started and said nothing. The room was tiny, but it was clean. The Yale lock had the button missing in the middle... More

The room was very small and had shared bathroom facilities down the hallway, was also DOWN the stairs, felt like I was in a dungeon. But was clean. Included continental breakfast, not bad for the price. Close to subway and botanic gardens.

I stayed at the hotel for three nights in June. The TV in my room worked sporadically and he internet was not working for the duration of my stay. I reported both issues a number of times but it was only on the final night of my stay that I was moved into a different room where the television worked.... More

The hotel was clean, comfortable and basic. When we found the car park it was full but the lady told us to park there anyway as we were planning to leave at 10am. We went down to breakfast at 9am the next morning, but because they were busy we didn't actually get given our breakfast until 9.45. As soon as... More

Spent 3 nights here. Location is in the west end of Glasgow so plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. I had a room in the basement which was a good size, clean and very quiet. I was provided with a key for the front door which means I could access the hotel when nobody was in reception. Breakfast... More

I needed a hotel close to Ruchill Park as I was in Glasgow for an event. The Kelvin Hotel was easy to get to from Glasgow Central bus station (just take the 6 or 6a bus and its right across the street from the bus stop). There were plenty of restaurants and a Waitrose within walking distance as well. I... More
