We came to the Alamo straight from a full on five star experience in a B&B in Edinburgh so perhaps we were more critical than usual. However given the cost of our room, the facilities and especially the breakfast really didn't cut it. On the plus side, we had a very warm welcome from the owner, whom we didn't see...

We stayed in a very grand room with an ensuite bath under one of the windows. There was a comfortable sitting area under the other window as well. We looked out towards Glasgow University over the park. The host, Steve, was friendly and informative. One of the highlights of our visit to Scotland.

Couldn't believe the fantastic welcome and service we received when we rang up on spec for a room. Lovely spacious, comfortable rooms at great prices with a fantastic breakfast provided, even more impressed that they were not even fazed by my dietary requirements and catered for me without problem. Would definitely recommend the Alamo and would go back.

A DVD library you can borrow from - friendly staff - comfy rooms - great beds - character - an in-house cat - a lovely breakfast - amazing views of the Kelvingrove Park. What more could one ask for? I couldn't recommend this guest house enough.

We stayed in the luxury suite, which was very roomy and we loved the free-standing bath, the underfloor heating and the massive 3D Blu-ray TV, it almost made us want to have a night in! Lots of choice for breakfast, recommend the porridge! Steve was really friendly and helpful. 20 mins from town centre. We'd definitely stay again.

Really appreciated the friendly reception in this family owned hotel. The room was a comfortable, and although there was no en-suite bathroom I was happy I chose this hotel. Steve is a great guy and shared his local knowledge with us to make sure we made the most out of our stay.
