“Comfortable, quiet spot close to Glasgow West End”
Brian has done a great job making this flat a cosy place for an autumn stay, certainly warm, plenty of hot water, functional shower, and great kitchen. Nice bay window to watch the comings and goings in the street while having a tasty breakfast purchased from the Baker's downstairs. Nice restaurants just a couple of minutes walk (try Velvet Elvis - great Mussels), Partick station just 6 minutes walk, and Kelvingrove just 20 minutes walk. Stop in the Three Judges pub on the way back for a great range of Scottish Ales. Can't wait for an excuse to go back!
“Clean, cosy and good location”
This is a lovely secure little flat 10 minutes drive from the airport, within walking distance of Glasgow University and the Kelvingrove Museum and a short bus ride from Glasgow's city centre (with the bus coming every five minutes and leaving from right outside the flat). There is a healthy and hip breakfast cafe across the road and easy access to Wholefoods fruit and vegies, post office and parking. The owner is friendly and was very courteous even though we were over an hour late in arriving. Will stay here again when visiting Glasgow.
“Amazing holiday rental”
I have been extremely happy throughout the whole process from the initial booking to the actual visit. Craig was really helpful when I made enquiries into the booking, and kept in touch the whole way through, arranging to meet us at the apartment to show us round and welcome us, I was extremely impressed when we arrived, the apartment is a fantastic rental, completely modern, immaculately tidy, very comfy double bed and pull out sofa, kitchen full of most utensils you'll require throughout your stay, wifi and smart tv, this is an extremely warm apartment, we never had the heating on the whole of our stay, windows open the whole time Transport links within minutes from the apartment, taxi into the city centre cost £6 and £11/12 to and from the airport. Shops, restaurants and bars galore, we spent an evening on Byers Road, 10 minutes walk away, amazing restaurants and lovely pubs. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. A huge thank you to Craig for being so welcoming :)
I booked Craig's apartment for my parents' stay in Glasgow. The apartment is very well located, close to shops, transport and restaurants; and although it is in a very busy road it is very quiet at night. Craig is a great host, very helpful and he keeps the place immaculate. I will highly recommend the place.
Brian's flat was great. I rented it for my parents are sister, who came for a visit over Christmas, and it was perfect. Very clean, in a really quiet building where we rarely heard any of the neighbours, and close enough to Partick station. It was also surprinsingly warm, we rarely had to put the heating on! The landlord (Brian) was really really helpful and helped us out with everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this flat to anyone! (it´s ideal for 2 or 3 people)
“Excellent 1 bed apartment in a great location!”
This gem of an apartment was a fantastic find. Spotless, newly decorated & re-furbished it has everything one would wish an apartment to have. A 15 minute walk to the heart of the West End and Byres Road. Bus No. 747 takes you from Glasgow Airport almost to the front door for just under 5.00 pounds. Bedroom is at back of apartment and even though it is on a busy road it is extremely quiet and you will have no problem getting to sleep at night. Craig the owner was there to meet me and gave me all the information I needed for a comfortable stay. Hope to make a return visit to this lovely apartment in the near future.
Hi Mary, thank you kindly for your lovely review. Very grateful and hope to see you again in the near future. Kind Regards
“Cosy, clean, contempory accommodation .”
Nice and central , very clean with modern facilities and appliances . Well furnished with everything you need. Fabulous big flat screen television. Craig the owner was incredibly helpful and welcoming, would definitely stay again.
“Great little flat in an ideal location”
Can't fault this apartment. The decor and finish has been done to a very high standard. It is spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for our weekend stay. We would definately recommend this property as a better alternative to staying in a hotel.
Thank you very much for your lovely review Martin. Your kind words about the apartment make all the hard work worth it. Hope to see you again in the future. Cheers Craig
I had a short stay here from 16th-19th September. This apartment is a fantastic little find, it has everything you need to make your stay pleasant and comfortable and has a great location. You are close to Partick station giving you easy access to Glasgow city centre and surrounding area aswell as the West End Shopping centre. Across from the flat there is a great little Chinese take away. Craig the owner of the apartment is great and extremely helpful as is his assistant Pauline. I look forward to staying in this property again in the future.
Hi Fi Thank you kindly for your lovely informative review. Really appreciated and helps future guests with the good information you've provided. Thanks again and i hope to see you back again in the near future. Cheers Craig
“Lovely flat, great location”
We had an enjoyable 1 weeks stay in this nicely rennovated red sandstone tenement apartment . Good location for city centre, pubs and resturants (Byres road) and more importantly for us only 20 mins walk to the hospital. Would suit 2 people comfortably although will sleep 4. Light, warm and well furnished. Easy to find and good access to the motorway and also local public transport. Brian was very helpfull. Derek and Kate
