Our stay at the Alamo was perfect. Emma, Steve, Flash (the cat) and their staff were very friendly and helpful. The suites are lovely. The location is adjacent to Kelvingrove Park with miles of walking trails and on the cycling route to Loch Lomond. The University of Glasgow and the Hunterian are just up the hill. There is easy access... More

We've been staying at the Alamo for the four years our son was at U of Glasgow and what we love most is the consistent high level of friendly service. Yes, the rooms are lovely and breakfast very nice, but the little touches like Tor, Emma, and Stephen always greeting us with a smile and asking about our son, and... More

The location is great, too. From the breakfast room you have a view to Glasgow University and a park. Restaurants are just around the corner and... More

Great place full of atmosphere' We stopped at Alamo Guest House on our trip through Scotland, unfortunately just for one night. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. Found a very good quality Italian restaurant close by. The location is really convenient. We'll stop there again next time. "

Staying at the Alamo is a thoroughly enjoyable experience: a comfortable room, a tasty breakfast (with additional options available on request), welcoming, cheerful and helpful hosts and other staff. Good, and remarkably cheap, restaurants are only a few minutes walk away, as are bus-stops for local buses and the good-value sightseeing tour bus. Should we return to Glasgow we shall... More

There is something about a place when you arrive and the owner gives you a hand, laughs with you at the weather and makes you instantaneously feel welcome. For down to earth people that enjoy a good atmosphere :) Stayer in a twin bed room, took a peak at their master suite, which i will take next time i come... More

Glorious original features in this beautiful west end Victorian building. Lovely friendly owner, central for all Glasgow has to offer (loads) and best scrambled eggs ever - I would definitely would go back.

This is by far one of my favourite places I've stayed while traveling. It is situated on a quiet street next to a very nice little park, and just at the corner on the street perpendicular is located a good number of restaurants, among which is a fabulous Indian resto! This guest home is family-run and the Steve, who welcomed... More
