“Visit to Scotland July 2005.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Truly enjoyed this small boutique hotel close to Glasgow University, the Art Gallery and downtown Glasgow with great shopping and restaurants. We arrived early in the morning and they stored our baggage and provided breakfast even though check in was not due until the afternoon.

Stayed here for 1 night on our tour of Scotland and what a great place to begin.

We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who told us where too park- buy your ticket from the hotel, not from the machine-much cheaper- she explained about breakfast and told us where our room was.

The room was large and comfy. The bathroom was clean but a little cramped.

Great location to walk into Glasgow, roughly took us 20 minutes.

Breakfast was delicious and served promptly.

Would definitely recommend.

There was a good crowd of us over from Northern Ireland for a wedding at university. Hotel was so handy for it and a lovely walk next day to centre of Glasgow. The place was clean, breakfast was beautiful and the staff all friendly especially George with his banter. Would highhly recommend it for a visit.

We booked this hotel for 2 adults and a child as we had to go to a funeral. Rooms looked modern and clean. Linen was exceptionally soft and beds were firm. This almost guaranteed a good nights rest... except that the basement rooms need a pump in the bathroom which make a huge racket when you flush or turn on any tap (or the shower). Loud enough to wake up anyone if you got up for a midnight drink.
Other than that hotel was fine. Breakfast was well cooked, plates were hot and coffee was even enjoyable!
Finally, finding a parking space after 20:00 can be challenging.

Room Tip: Avoid the basement rooms!

Stayed here for 1 night friendly welcome on reception with helpful staff. The room was large and the beds were comfy. A hearty breakfast set us on our way the next morning although the haggis had been fried to within an inch of its life!!! Would definitely recommend to others and stay again ourselves.

I have stayed at Hotel Kelvin every three years over a period of 49 years. The hotel has had three owners over this period.
During this long time the hotel has maintained an excellent standard of service and comfort.
The hotel is located in an excellent area of Glasgow with good transport available.

Room Tip: Book early to get the best rooms on the upper floors.

Nice hotel, nice staff, nice rooms and a nice breakfast. I don't think I want much else from a hotel. Lots of great bars and restaurants close by and even a walk into the city would only take half an hour(ish) if you wanted to use your legs. Easy on street parking close by which is a real bonus. Didn't get the ladies name on reception but she was very helpful.
