Stayed for 2 nights. The place is located close to a railway station with trains every half hour or so to the city. The room was very comfortable. The whole place was spotless and John takes great pride in making sure that guest comfort is paramount. Good cooked breakfast.

You couldn't meet anyone as passionate about their guesthouse and Glasgow as John- an absolute delight- goes all out to please. His beautiful house is in a leafy suburb, one stop into town on the train but walking distance to Pollock Estate and Bellahouston Park. Breakfast delicious- loved the fruit platter. Not well sign posted due to council restrictions so...

My wife and I spent a total of 4 nights here while on a 9 day visit to Scotland, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay! John is an absolute master of customer service. The facilities may be rated 3 star, but the service John and his "wingman", James provide is definitely 5 star. John met us upon our...

We only stayed one night here - not nearly long enough! John met us in person, gave us a whole load of information on the city, where to go, what to see, and generally made us feel completely at home in this beautiful house. The room was huge, bathroom very good, breakfast delicious (and personally served) and the house is...

The Guest House is currently ranked #1 in Glasgow on Tripadvisor, and we chose it partly for that reason and partly because we needed to be in that area. John, the owner, could not be more helpful or obliging, and he certainly makes his guests feel extra welcome. It is situated in a very nice area just on the edge...
