This modern apartment is the perfect base for Commonwealth Games visitors to Glasgow due to its central location, within walking distance to Glasgow's city centre and minutes by taxi to Games' venues. It is situated on the south side of the river and adjacent to the underground station (West Street) and main motorway (M8 and M74) links, which is very convenient for Glasgow Airport. Nearby are cinemas (The Quay) , major music venues (HYDRO, SEEC and O2 ACADEMY), fantastic restaurants, a great theatre (CITIZENS) and a casino. Glasgow is a great place to visit, with the West End, the fantastic Merchant CIty and the South side. The apartment is right in the middle of all these areas. The apartment is in a historic private 'gardens' conversion has private parking. The gardens are managed, modern and safe. Please note, this property has been relisted for the Commonwealth games, so at this time there are no reviews; however, during the previous listing there were positive reviews, e.g. (1) 'very nice and modern flat. Comfortable and Tom surprised me with a welcome pack ( bread , tea, milk and butter) . That was so thoughtful and made me repeat my visit. Location is ideal for shopping. Next to the train station an added plus and would recommend this flat any day. thanks Tom, you are the best. Good business and service deliver' (5 stars), Dorothy, Nigeria; (2) 'My husband and I were going to be in Glasgow for 2 mos on a combination business/pleasure trip and couldn't bear to be in a hotel for that amount of time. I found Westbridge apt and couldn't be happier that I did! The apt. is very well located within a short walk to all the shopping, restaurants and pubs Glasgow has to offer. Tom, the owner couldn't have been more helpful, giving us a list of all his favorite haunts in the City. The apt. is very well equipped and lacked for nothing. I especially liked that we had a gigantic flat screen TV in the living room and also a TV in the bedroom. Free, on-site parking was a blessing as well. We began to feel like real Glaswegians after awhile. We hope our travels take us back to Glasgow in the near future- if it does, I certainly hope to stay at Westbridge' (5 stars) Jeanne Sharman, USA; (3) 'The apartment came very well equipped, with a number of appreciated extras and additions we haven't found in many other locations. The owners were great to work with - genial, accommodating, and easy going. We'd be happy to return to the Westbridge Gardens should we be lucky enough to have that opportunity' . (5 stars) blackwalnutmn's, Twin Cities, Minnesota. The writer is happy to verify these comments are authentic.
