This flat is a great place to stay for either a short or longer break. It's in a quiet location but still just a few minutes stroll from the Glasgow Kelvinbridge Subway stop, and numerous buses on the Great Western Road. So you don't really need a car but if you have one that's fine too because there is free parking next to the flat!
The landlord is very nice and helpful. He met us when we arrived and explained how things worked etc. He even left us tea, coffee, juice and chocolate croissants, which was much appreciated after our long journey from Germany.
The flat is comfortable, has good facilities like the washing machine, dishwasher, free Internet, and DVD player (even a choice of DVDs to watch) and it's nicely furnished. I'd have no hesitation in re-booking to stay at this flat.
