Reviewed June 28, 2014

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.

Room Tip: Double room at front has a large bed but does have a disabled equipped bathroom.

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 we drove straight past initially. Plenty of parking in the street at the back of the house. Great outdoor area for a picnic dinner by twilight.

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 arrival and greeted us like family. After insisting on helping with our luggage, John gave us a fantastic list of recommendations of things to see and do in Glasgow and places close by to get a quick bite to eat, as well as how to catch the train which is only one stop to Glasgow's city center. The Guest house is located very conveniently on the edge of the city with quick and easy access to the major roadways for those who are driving themselves, and is surrounded by beautiful parks perfect for walks or jogging. Hopefully, we will be able to get back to Scotland soon, and if we do, there is no place we would rather stay than at the Glasgow Guest House.

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 so lovely, we could have happily stayed much longer. Free parking right next door too. The local train station is just one stop from the station so it's super easy to get into the city centre (though trains only go every half hour or so). Loads to see right in the Dumbreck area as well - Pollock Park is stunning. It's extremely good value and we'll stay again just as soon as we can get back up to Glasgow for a longer stay.

Room Tip: We had the ground floor room at the front which was lovely. The traffic is rather noisy outside but...

What a find! This beautiful guest house owned & run by John is very well situated in Dumbreck near the train station & a short ride in to Glasgow central. Dumbreck is in the most beautiful part of Glasgow with enormous parks,historic homes & the world famous Burrell Art Collection...a great place to stay.
The Guest house is beautifully decorated & the rooms spacious, comfortable & elegant.
Breakfast was wonderful...especially the fruit platter.Nothing was too much trouble for John & James (his staff) and their enthusiasm for Glasgow is infectious.
Highly recommended & great value for money.

Room Tip: You could do no better in Glasgow than this beautiful guest house.

Glasgow guest house is truly a gem in Scotland. John and his staff made us feel very welcomed and went above and beyond to ensure that we were comfortable. The rooms are beautifully decorated and clean. Breakfast was quite tasty and more than enough. It is situated close to Pollock Park and near the Dumbreck train stop which will take you to the city in minutes. I highly recommend this place to stay if you want that " home away from home " feeling. I hope to visit Scotland again some day and when I do, Glasgow Guest house will be the place to stay.

This has to be the best guest house, that i have had the pleasure to stay at.
Many brand name hotels should take note, at the genuine ethusiasm of our host John and his staff.
arrived on 23/5/14 for 2 nights, as we where attending a wedding, nearby.
The room we had was on the ground floor, very happy with style and cleanliness.
Breakfast was excellent, no complaints.
I fully recommend the glasgow guest house, for service, quality and value.
Dumbreck train station short walk away, bus stop ouitside property and motorway connections 1 minute away, could not ask for more.
Thanks john for a pleasant stay and rememeber to book a holiday, you deserve it.
