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

As budget hotels go, this is ideal. It's a perfect location and on the main, very clean. Shared toilet facilities are not ideal but clean. Decent breakfast. Any faults are instantly forgiven due to the brilliant staff! As the lady rightly said, 'you get what you pay for'

The Kelvin Hotel is very much a low budget hotel but ideally situated just off Great Western Road and only minutes from the City Centre by bus, cab or underground. The building itself is a wonderful example of Victorian architecture. The staff are all exceedingly welcoming and helpful. There is quite a variety of rooms from spacious en suite rooms... More

Good lady and I stayed here one weekend night in Feb. Very comfy bed it must be said. Room had a sink but had to use a shared bathroom which is of course never ideal for anyone who has left their teens years behind and no longer enjoys sleepovers!! It did say the room had a flat screen tv which... More

You will always get a warm welcome and a comfortable stay from the staff who are very kind to attend to your personal and other needs. A nice breakfast is served every morning, the rooms are always clean and the location lets you access local destinations easier.

Easy access into town, 7 minutes to Glasgow Central on the bus no 6, 6A and a fiver would get you a cab back from... More

Kept meaning to place a review and then forgetting! We stayed in a double en-suite room for 10 days during the summer of 2014. The room was clean, comfortable and met all our needs. Our room was at the back of the hotel, so was quiet. Breakfast was included in the price, and included choice of cereals, yoghurts, cold meat... More
