“Quaint little hotel in Glasgow West End”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Absolutely loved this wonderful hotel in the West End. An easy walk to some attractions; easy access to bus and subway. Great for the end of vacation, as it was a smooth 20 taxi ride to the airport. Breakfast made fresh daily, brought to our room, with three options including a luxury breakfast with salmon. Room was large; bathroom large enough to be another bedroom. An upstairs lounge with hot tea available, plus several books on local attractions helped guide our choice of things to see and do. Loved the tartan carpet in the lobby and on the staircase. We had room !, a few steps down from the lobby, which was private and quiet. Linda, the host, was very helpful without being intrusive. Would definitely stay here again!

The Kirklee Hotel is a lovely building in a great location. Staff were friendly, bedding and towels were clean but we were very disappointed with our room and really felt the accommodation was overpriced given it's condition. The room was in dire need of redecoration and the mattress had definitely seen better days. The bathroom needed a total upgrade - turquoise chipped suite and ancient shower which we couldn't get to work properly. Would be a great place to stay if some money was spent on refurbishing it.

Just returned from a great stay at the Kirklee hotel in Glasgow. Loved the room, particularly the large bathroom with the great tub!
Breakfast was brought to the room and included in the price. Loved the smoked salmon.
Only minus was the mattress on the twin bed (our room had a full and a twin) which was a bit worn out. Was able to solve the problem by adding the mattress of the pull-out bed that was in the room.
Great location, great service.

Really enjoyed the breakfast and great location of the hotel for walking to Botanics and Byres Road. The Hotel building is beautifully restored with the feel of "old fashioned" west end charm with modern convenience.
Hope to come back soon...

Room Tip: front of hotel has nice view of gardens

We really enjoyed our stay at the Kirklee Hotel. Staying there for three nights, we were welcomed by the friendly and attentive staff. The rooms are lovingly furnished and clean, the freshly prepared breakfast is served in the rooms and the location is peaceful and close to the gorgeous botanic gardens. At the end of our stay we didn't want to leave because the entire house conveyed a feeling of home back in the Edwardian times. We will definitely come back if we visit Glasgow another time.

We recently spent 8 nights in a 'family' room with our adult daughter while attending a wedding and seeing the sights in and around Glasgow. The helpful and friendly service was amazing and the room was very nice - with a lovely view of the well kept garden from our 3rd floor bow window. A very quiet and peaceful location, but also in very convenient walking distance to shops, cafes and the train station. The room was clean and the breakfasts brought to our room each morning really made us feel pampered. The wifi was appreciated, although we often had to go to the (lovely) 2nd floor guest lounge to get good coverage, We will definitely stay here again when we travel back to Glasgow to visit the newly weds. Highly recommended.

The kindest of welcomes to weary travellers - even making their own lounge available to one who arrived with a migraine headache whilst our room prepared for early occupation. Perfect, quiet but convenient location, close to shops, restaurants and transport, clean and good sized room, leafy garden outlook, excellent breakfasts. Grand old house, comfy guest lounge, good beds - only negative was some rather tired furniture in need of repair in the room but this was far outweighed by the top service - relief manager Linda was a gem. Highly recommended.
