Gosh, I wish I could write a nice review of this hotel but I was so disappointed with my stay. We booked here as friends were getting married at Oran Mor and the Hilton the wedding party stayed in was full. Upon check-in the receptionist confused our name with another guest, when I pointed it out she asked if we...

Lovely hotel recommended to us by a friend. Nice decor and rooms were very nice. Not much noise either considering its right on great western road. Great location for the west end bars restaurants and the underground at either byres road or great western road. Would recommend and stay again.

Great style, great area, great price, great service… great everything. If you’re looking to stay in the West End I think you can’t go wrong by staying here. I should mention that I didn’t have time to try the breakfast in the morning, so I can’t comment on that. The room layout was also exceptional. My only complaint is that...

I had room 12 on the top floor which is a bit of a trek but room was spacious despite being in the eves and the bathroom looked new. The big problem is the shower as there are no instructions and it took ages to get hot water, I had to get the receptionist up to fix it. It's only...

This hotel offered Victorian hospitality in modern times. The decor was stunning and the staff simply delightful. Please note that, should one have trouble with stairs, this is not the place for you as it takes climbing a hill and stair to get to the hotel and then a series of stairs to the rooms.

Great room with en suite. Hotel has a great atmosphere. Facilities were fine and good choices for continental breakfast. Handy for Byres Road, Botanic Gardens and Oran Mor. Would definitely use again if ever I go to Glasgow.

A beautiful property with big, spacious rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. The B&B is within easy walking distance of the University, the Botanical Gardens and the many museums in Glasgow. Parking is an issue and the breakfast was on the light side, but would definitely visit again if in the city.

We loved staying at the Alfred hotel. From its exceptional stylish decor to the most convenient location in the city, everything was great. The only thing I wasn't completely satisfied was the size of bathroom/shower in our double room. It's a little too small and it was hard not to bump into things if you want to stretch or even...

What a lovely warm welcome from the staff of the Alfred, and a big corner room full of the changeable light of Scotland. It is set up above and away from the busy road, and convenient for the hipster area of West End. Breakfast is most enjoyable in the big front room. Coffee in the room. Shower works great. Comfortable...
