By chance we chose this guesthouse hotel and were so very pleased we did. The location is great - a step to the Kelvingrove Museum which we love. The guesthouse has the best welcome we have ever experienced. The warm, smiling staff can't do enough. Getting a smiling good morning with "What can I get for you" is very special.... More

Beautiful guest house and extremely friendly and helpful staff. We did not actually stay at this guest house, but since our own guest house would not look after our luggage while we explored the city, we asked the staff of Alamo if we could store our suitcases in their hall for the day. They were very friendly and even called... More

My husband and I stayed at Alamo in winter 2014, the first time we visited Glasgow. While we absolutely loved Alamo, when we decided to take a midweek city break to Glasgow this summer, we thought we'd pinch pennies and stay somewhere else around the corner. Huge mistake. We'd booked 2 nights at the other place, but after several disappointments... More

Situated across from Kelvingrove Park, this elegant 1880s Victorian building is owned and run by Emma, Steve their boys and Flash (their 23 year old amazing and personable feline). We picked Alamo Guest House as we were walking the West Highland Way and wanted to be close to the starting point in Kelvingrove Park. Not only is it the best... More

The Alamo is lovely, the position is perfect, the breakfast is good, the staff are good. What was disappointing about our stay is that we were never told about the little 23 year old cat who's home is the Alamo too. It is such a fundamental omission that it affects its rating. I like cats but I am allergic to... More

Dear Tracey, Thank you for your feedback regarding our cat for any future guests :) I have to say that on reading this review I was shocked that you gave us such a low rating that could really harm our standing on this highly influential sight regardless of the cat or not. A shocking 3 for service as well. We... More

I booked this place for one night whilst seeing concert at Hampden park. Steve and Emma were wonderful and welcoming and were more than happy to chat about places to eat/offering to book a taxi and thoroughly showing us around the place and where the breakfast room was. The place itself is beautifully designed and decorated to make you feel... More

We booked here to be relatively handy for the hydro and it was ideally placed about 15 mins walk. The house is on the edge of kelvingrove park so a lovely outlook from our window. The house is elegantly decorated. Breakfast was great. The host and all staff were friendly and sociable. I would certainly go back....so much better than... More

It has been beautifully restored & all the rooms are elegant, comfortable & unique. Breakfast in the dining room was convivial, relaxed & made to suit our needs. the coffee was excellent too. But it... More

This hotel is in the best location in Glasgow, next to the best restaurants and bars, and opposite Kelvingrove park. It is also next to a number of the top museums in the city and the main university site.
