This was my second and definietely not the last time spended at Kelvin Hotel. Very cheerful and helpful staff, excellent cooked breakfast (bacon is my favourite; nobody does bacon like they do!), spacious and clean bathrooms, cosy rooms and quite comfortable beds. Close to the city centre (it's four stations by subway), very close to the botanic gardens, shops, pubs etc. I recommend it from the bottom of my heart!

The hotel was very welcoming and helpful. The food was lovely and hot, the room warm and inviting, nothing was ever too much trouble for the staff to do for you. The location was within easy access of Glasgow Central for shopping, various eateries and unusual shops across the road and the hospital where I was visiting a family member was within walking distance.

Would certainly recommend them to others - thank you greatly.

Very good location, plenty of restaurants and attractions nearby. The lady at the reception desk made us feel very welcome. We stayed in an en suite bedroom which was decently sized and cosy. Breakfast was good. Couldn't fault it.

When I was booking my stay at the Kelvin Hotel I was drawn in by both the location and the price. The hotel is perfectly for anywhere in the west end, but especially close to the University. It is also on an easily accessible road, quiet due to being slightly removed from the main road. The pricing of the hotel (my room was £39 for bed and breakfast) is very inexpensive for the area, and the other hotels I had seen as this cost did not look like the same standard.

My actual stay at the Kelvin Hotel was really enjoyable. The room, I think I may have been put in a double not a single, was really nice. Simple and compact but extremely clean, well decorated and comfortable. I had a brilliant night sleep, as the bed was brilliant and it was not noisy. The shared bathrooms were more dated, but still clean and comfortable enough. I have to give a special mention to the staff who were extremely pleasant and helpful. Also the breakfast food was good quality, and the breakfast service all very well done!

Thank you all for a lovely stay. I would definitely come again!
