Charlie's a lovely host, very friendly, patient and helpful. Breakfast was lovely, freshly cooked by Charlie himself. The only problem I found was the size of the room, was a bit too small for 2 person plus 2 hand luggage. Otherwise the place was very clean and all the staff there were lovely. The location of this B&B is at...

We loved the location of the Kelvin and Sandra was so friendly, helpful and always up for a good laugh! We were on the top floor so it was nice and quiet. Shutters on the windows helped to block out light and slight traffic noise. Our friends were in the basement level and said they could hear a lot of...

The location was just great, close enough to the subway, many interesting restaurants and Glasgow uni. The room was spacious and tidy, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was a great plus. The staff was great as well, with Sandra always pleased to help. And the WiFi was fast enough during most of the time we stayed there.

Charlie was fantastic! Very helpful and friendly and even asked about our trip from a previous day. Breakfast is lovely and the wifi isn't too slow. Perfect location - you're pretty close to the laundromat, Co-op, ATM, and restaurants. It's also very quiet and while the rooms are small, they're comfy! I would recommend the Kelvin for anyone staying in...

I would definitely recommend The Kelvin. I worked at a flight attendant for 30 years and have stayed in many hotels. My friends and I were greeted by Charlie and I could not be more impressed. . He was GREAT! Very friendly, and helpful. I arrived about 8:00 P.M and had to leave for my flight at 6:00 A.M. He...

Staff was very helpful and kind (especially very lovely Scottish lady from staff called Sandra:))! House keeping was done regularly and in time. Having lived in room number 17 (single room), the room space was small but quite comfortable.

The service I received at this hotel was some of the best I've ever seen. The receptionist went out of his way to give myself and a friend a twin room following a mixup at another hotel that left us stranded in Glasgow on a friday night, he was kind enough to match the price we had for the other...

Friendly place, small but clean rooms. Breakfast was included and was good. Good location in the West End, quick subway ride away from town, and lots of little cafes etc. nearby on Byres Rd. Would definitely recommend.
