We were searching for a B&B at Glasgow near the Glasgow University. We found Hotel Kelvin with positive reviews at Trip Advisor. The location and prices were attractive. We had a chat with the landlady and the Manager who were willing to accommodate. We stayed here for a week from Monday to Saturday and it was good. Its proximity to... More

This hotel is incredibly reasonable at £45 for a small double. It is conveniently located near subway stations and great eateries and pubs (Oran Mor is well worth a visit). I found the lady who greeted us to be very friendly and warm and the room (7) was neat and tidy. If you're on a budget you'll struggle to find... More

Wonderful location on Great Western Road near the top of Byres Rd. The dining room has a high ceiling and tall, majestic windows. Our room was adequate and the en suite attractive with a low bath and a sauna-type feel. There's no lift and we did have to carry our luggage up a long way. For us the hotel had... More

My mother stayed here for the weekend and had a lovely time - she found it clean and comfortable with a good breakfast. She has a bit of a bad back and uses a stick to get about, and had to be careful with the stairs leading to the hotel but on her way off, Sandra, the manageress, helped her... More

I've stayed here 3 times now and have just booked my 4th visit! I've always stayed in a small double room at about £40, working out to just over £20 per person. This is a fantastic price for an impeccably clean room, with towels, soap and tea and coffee making facilities, as well as internet access. There are TVs but... More

We were looking for somewhere to cheap to stay for a couple of nights in Glasgow. We were literally just using the room to sleep in. The bed is comfortable, can't complain about that. Breakfast in the morning was also good, we were expecting something that wasn't so good seeing as we hadn't paid that much for the room. Staff... More

A great bargain close to the lively Byres Road area and so extremeley well located - it's also not far from Hillhead stop of Glasgow's 'Clockwork Orange' subway system. It's old fashioned in style but a handsome townhouse nonetheless. I wouldn't have fancied sharing a bathroom as many have to and facilities in my room were exemplary including a multi-channelled...

We were looking for a Hotel in the West End of Glasgow to visit our sons in that area and after reviewing Trip Advisor plumped for the Kelvin Hotel. On Arrival we found parking spaces at a premium in a narrow street but were lucky to find a small space right outside the front door and an overnight parking of... More

The Room: The Kelvin is a great value. I stayed for 10 days, and had a comfortable, quiet room with clean towels, everything I needed to make tea and coffee, an en suite bathroom with a shower, free WiFi, and a flat screen TV with good reception and plenty of Freeview channels. The room also has a little electric fireplace,... More
