I was looking for a reasonably priced B & B around the university area of Glasgow for a couple of nights. A few caught my eye and I was undecided until I noticed that the Alamo was the only one with NO bad reviews on this site. And now I know why.
I was given a charming room in the basement (full of light with large windows) but the TV wasn't giving a clear picture. I asked for some help to get a better signal and when Steve (the owner) found that there was little improvement he moved me to a double room with an en-suite at no extra charge. How's that for service? Incidentally, had the TV been working properly, I would have been quite happy with my room even though it was one of the many rooms that come with shared bathroom facilities. But don't let that deter you. The place is spotless. Steve and wife Emma are the most charming and interesting people who love to meet people from abroad. Kristen who works there is equally friendly and helpful.
The high ceilinged rooms are lovingly decorated in Victorian fashion to suit the style of the house and the breakfast room is spacious with a lovely bay window.
Lastly, the Alamo overlooks Kelvingrove Park which makes for a pastoral view and peace and quiet around the clock. Kelvingrove Gallery situated in the park is also a beautiful backdrop when this 18th century sandstone museum is lit up at night.
In short, don't hesitate. It's a great find.
