“The most amazing gem in Glasgow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

The Flowerhouse is the most amazing place in glasgow. Convient and close to bus stops. beautiful decorations, The home is spacious and big. The rooms are uniquely designed:) Each room has a special feature. The breakfast is stunning, everyday was a different taste of Scotland. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The free WIFI is a bonus as you are able to communicate with family and friends abroad.
I HAVE SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST.....the hosts Susan and Ian are the best:) Hospitable and accomodating. I stayed for a week and grew so found of them. I was tears when my week had ended as they are dear people who took such good care of me. If you ever plan a trip to Glasgow, look no further than the guesthouse:)

I had a very pleasant stay, the owners were most kind, welcoming and helpful.
My room was very comfortable and looked out on to the pretty walled garden. Breakfast brought to my room on a tray was a treat. Location is great for visiting the West end attractions. I'd definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking for Glaswegian hospitality.

My wife and I were over to Glasgow to visit our daughter finishing Glasgow School of Arts. Susan and Ian, the hosts, were phenomenal. The bedding in this B&B was very comfortable; the accommodations warm; the breakfasts prepared by Susan were sumptuous; the location was very near to many restaurants; the price was great and the hosts were most gracious.

Room Tip: Explain your needs to Susan.

The Flower House is a joy. Susan is a proud Glaswegian and a marvellous hostess. The breakfast in your room is immense. The decor is whacky, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming.

It is superbly located in the west (best) end of Glasgow, with the fabulous Ben Nevis pub just around the corner, a Celtic gem with live traditional music and a vast range of single malts - try the Ardberg, you'll never look back. There are great restaurants nearby also, try the superb "2 single ladies".

Excellent and great value for money.

Enjoy a great breakfast, walk to the conference center, walk to the art gallery and a great park. Ask Susan to help with your cab - it's a good deal, and be sure to ask before you fly in as well. You'll save valuable Pounds.

Bathrooms are shared, but i never bumped into anyone. Breakfast is served to your room, promptly when you requested it. Dine in the comfort of your own space. Safe area for walking. Lot's of restaurants within a short cab ride. Maybe 5 Pounds. if you have Euros already they are taken in many places. Didn't see anyplace that accepted US dollars, but your credit cards works fine.

Room Tip: I would stay upstairs, it felt less humid, but the bathroom with a shower is downstairs if you want...

The Flower House......has lots of flowers in the entrance! It also has some eccentric and quirky decor - a ship's wheel in one bathroom; shells encesd in a see through loo seat in another!

Helpful owners; breakfast in the room. A comfy and central (W Glasgow) location....close to Mackintosh/Hunterian Museum.

A good base for the city; not overly expensive

My wife and I stayed three nights at The Flower House in May 2011. The rooms were very clean and the house was very well kept and decorated to the period of the home with wonderful antiques. The full Scottish Breakfast served in your room was great every morning. The location is very central. It is not in the immediate downtown area but is just adjacent and a good location between downtown and the west side near the university. We went to a concert at the SECC which was just 5 mintues walk. Our room was downstairs, very quiet, with a window looking out on the beautiful garden. The best reasons to stay here however are the hosts. Susan and Ian were wonderful. After long overnight flights, we arrived at around 8 am and were of course allowed to drop our bags and intended to return around 2 pm for the normal check in time. By 11 am we were so tired we decided to ask if we could just come in and sit to wait for our rooms. We must have looked pretty beat as before we could even ask, Susan took one look at us and immediately hurried to get our room ready so we could lie down for a bit allowing us to check in well before the normal time. On our last night we had intended to go out, but got into a conversation with Susan and Ian and were enjoying ourselves so much we decided to stay in and just spend the time with them.
