"Very Comfortable Accommodation"
We stayed here at the end of May for 4 nights. Having been a student at Glasgow University some years ago this was a nostalgic trip and I was also celebrating my birthday. We could not have wished for better accommodation for our visit. The booking process was efficient and Fiona replied to e-mails promptly. Payment was easy and we received our damage deposit back quickly. We were arriving late on a Friday evening at half-term and we knew our journey would be a long one so we really appreciated Paulene coming to meet us with the keys. The flat is very well equipped, beautifully furnished and very clean and tidy. The wi-fi worked very well and was most welcome. The flat is very well located and close to many, many good restaurants and bars. I can recommend The Butchershop and No16 on Byres Rd where we had dinner on my birthday, both a comfortable walk from the flat. For breakfast try Cafe Gandolfi in town or Tribeca on Dumbarton Rd, just a short walk from the flat. It is very easy to get into town using the subway from either Byres Road or Partick. We were happy to have glorious sunshine for the majority of our stay which certainly added to our enjoyment. We ate out and came back late and it was lovely to have such a comfortable place to come back to for relaxation. We found the flat to be nice and quiet with no noise issues at all. The street can be busy for parking but a quick drive round meant we always found a space only a short walk away, if not right outside the front door. You don't need a car her to explore the city but we had driven from our home in Milton Keynes. We have relatives in the area but we loved having our own accommodation available and we will certainly be booking again when we next visit.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We were delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit back to Glasgow and staying at Caird Drive.We look forward to welcoming you again !

"Accommodation couldn't have been better!"
Stayed for one month at 21 Caird Drive. Location was amazing! Close to bus, shops, Byres Road, the University, the tube station, a local theatre, many restaurants and coffee shops, pubs etc The flat itself was modern, warm and comfortable. My 90 year old mom loved it too! We both felt we could just permanently move in! The kitchen was outfitted with all the necessary cooking supplies. Pauline did a super job of welcoming us and kindly drove me to the supermarket on the first day - thanks Pauline! Fiona is a most gracious owner and phoned us to make sure everything was ok. I can't say enough good things about our stay! Loved Glasgow! Loved the west end!

A great apartment. Very quiet but close enough to the hustle and bustle of Glasgow's West End. Paulene, who takes care of the flat, was the nicest and most helpful person. She even gave us books and dvds for the boys on those typical Glasgow summer's days! Apartment was perfect for our family and we'll definitely be back! Highly Recommended.
