“Returning home!”
Reviewed October 1, 2003

The Babbity was one of the most hospitable places we've ever stayed, and we've stayed in a lot of places! Frasier and his crew are beyond belief, the guests and regulars friendly and welcoming, and the food (breakfast and supper) really, really good. If you're visiting Glasgow, and you don't stay/eat here, you've missed something uncommonly special.
