Just got back from staying here for two nights with my older brother after seeing Marillion in Glasgow. From an architectural point of view, this place is wonderful. It's resembles an old Scottish Lairds house with all the modern conveniences you would expect. It's easy to find just of Sauchiehall Street near Kelvin Grove and is easily served by buses... More

My stay at the Alamo guest house was perfect! There was only one problem, it was too short! I would have loved to stay even longer! The house is gorgeous! The room I stay in was large and extremely comfortable. I have stayed in a lot of nice hotels, but this was the best stay I have had.. What set... More

Great west-end location near great restaurants and the Kelvingrove Museum. The neighborhood is quiet and very walkable. Our room was large and comfortable. Breakfast was superb. Especially enjoyed the fruit salad.

We were given a warm welcome from Steve and we were delighted to be shown to our spacious room with its en suite shower and bathroom and a view of the park. Lovely fluffy white towels were available and the comfort of bath robes too. At breakfast, there was a lot to choose from, both hot and cold. We found... More

Just spent 5 days in this sumptuous place. Perfectly situated for art, history and food lovers. The hotel is peaceful, well run and spotlessly clean. The choice at breakfast could not be faulted. Everything was fresh, well-cooked and often organic. Parking is easy and cheap, although we didn't need to use our car once. Emma and Steve are serious in... More

Having stayed at The Alamo on a number of occasions with my family, I had no hesitation in booking again when my brother wanted to visit and explore Glasgow. Set just opposite the Kelvingrove Museum it is a peaceful haven, carefully restored by its owners. Lovely atmosphere and great breakfasts.

Stayed two nights while visiting a friend. Absolutely the right balance between warm welcome and leaving us independent. Breakfast one of the best I have had. Selection and personalized choice couldn't be bettered.

Guest house is in a great location near to all the bars and restaurants for this part of Glasgow but down a quiet road. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The room was very clean, large and well decorated. The breakfast was excellent. The house as a hole is beautiful. My one negative would be, on the booking page... More
