“Had just a wonderful time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Located right across (via underpass) from Victoria Park, in Glasgow's residential/trendy West End, this very special heritage property, that relatively new owners have kept up and appointed to the max, has a real nurturing quality about it.

A combination of classic furniture and draperies, well-planned lighting, and original art dress the common areas as well my own large, beautiful room: comfortable canopy bed, window seat, show pillows, armchair, TV, armoire, windowed bathroom, in-room tea and coffee -- and amazing shortbread cookies. A short walk connects this property to good public transit.

Manor Park GH is conveniently equidistant from both downtown and the airport (10 minute drives), however, it may be a bit tricky to find the first time -- if you are lacking some simple but essential information: First, it is on Balshagray Drive. Please note that, in what I found to be true Scottish town-planning, there is also an avenue, drive, crescent, place, and lane -- all of the same name. (You access the neighbourhood from city centre via Dumbarton Road; a town also shares this name.) If you pronounce it without a Scottish accent, ie, "Balsha-gray", no-one will have a clue what you're talking about. It is pronounced "Balsha-garrray" with the 'r' rolled so heavily, it sounds more like "Balshagga-rrudddy". Important info when asking directions or communicating with taxi/bus drivers. What worked for me was to just blankly repeat "Balsha, Balsha" and wait for the other person to fill in the blank.

The train station (in City Centre) is a reasonable cab fare away. If you have more time and are more adventurous, #3 bus also connects. When coming to the property from there, ask to be dropped at the stop "before the round-about at the end of Dumbarton Road", then walk just a few short blocks northwest right to the door.

Probably better to cab it to/fro the airport because the airport bus that you access at the same round-about area is not an express. For the short distance to Manor Park GH the bus ride takes about 45 minutes/cost around 5 pounds.

Your hosts at Manor park will be able to sort out and arrange any transport for you as well as give you really good information and recommendations about Glasgow proper as well as itineraries out of town. I found them very sweet and accessible about everything, doing quite a bit to make me feel more than welcome and assure a pleasant stay.

Breakfast was substantial with coffee that's worth a mention. You can go from light continental to full Scottish breakfast with delicious meats and potato pancakes. I even braved a very "wee taste" of haggis". Impressive too was that, on the day I was to leave before breakfast, they provided a full continental breakfast tray for me beforehand. Very appreciated touch that too many places never think to offer.

If you are looking for more than just a bed and shower between sightseeing trips and you want a really nice place to rest and savour your time in Glasgow, you can't beat this lovely place.

I stay in Glasgow regularly and this was my first stay at the Manor Park. Fiona, Scott and the other other two people working there whom I met were all really friendly and helpful. So say say goodbye to the chain hotels and stay here instead! It's a gracious but distinctively Glaswegian house and the lovely Scottish landscape paintings in every room are a wonderful addition. I'll definitely be back.

Had a lovely 2 nights here, bedroom etc lovely and comfortable. The owners could not have been nicer and friendly, nothing was too much bother for them. Had a lovely breakfast both mornings, freshly cooked to order.

It was our first visit here and will not be our last.

Charming old house, very welcoming and friendly hosts, excellent service, comfortable room, good breakfast, handy free parking, good location to West End and university (with car; walking ok, too, if you are a "walker").

I stayed here over the Christmas break while there was no room with the family. The place was really comfortable and clean with everything needed. The owners/ operators were helpful and I felt I would have no problems asking or contacting them if I needed anything. The room was well set out with all the things needed. It was a bit of a sanctuary to come back to.
