Alison Guesthouse
Ranked #13 of 36 Glasgow B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 September 2013

We arrived in Glasgow a bit stressed from our drive. We pulled over and searched the internet for a B&B close by. Alison Guest House was the first accommodation on the list and, using our new SatNav, it was easy to find, but Kenny and Anne were not! - - We found them enjoying a rare sunny afternoon in the backyard! haha Lucky for us, they had a room available. It wasn't fancy, but it was clean enough and the bed was comfy. In the am the big breakfast table was a good place to meet the other guests and have a leisurely chat before starting the day. Kenny and Anne were incredibly hospitable and very friendly and helpful! The location was great- only a 15 minute walk to downtown Glasgow. This was a great place to stay - and we would recommend it to any of our friends or family travelling through Glasgow.

I booked a room via email at this guest house for a friend and me for an overnight stay when we were visiting Glasgow for the Bruce Springsteen concert, I also confirmed the booking with a telephone call. When we arrived we were greeted by a very unpleasant man who I assume was Kenny who informed us that there were no rooms available, no apologies were offered. After telling him my name he informed me that my name was in the book with a cross through it again with no explaination why or an apology for the mix up. Due to the concert this was the only available accomodation that i could find on the internet in the Glasgow area for that night and now I know why. Luckily we found somewhere nearby that had had a late cancelation otherwise it would have resulted in an uncomfortable night in the car.

in response to this review . the people where initially booked via internet but with an oversight as we were fully booked the response re this booking was sent by return mail . but people obviously did not take note of same . and unfortunately on this day my mum had a heart attack and i was at the hospital in Kilmarnock . they had not noted they did not actually have a booking . they where accomodated by our fiends accross the road .fortunately

these things sadly do happen .

I was very impressed by the warmth and kindness of kenny and his wife. they made me feel welcome and could not do enough to help me. I really apreciate thier hospitality and i would definately recommend the guest house as a place like home from home.
The room was lovely and clean and the bed was very comfortable.
I will look forward to staying there in the future.

Back for my second stay here whilst working in the city. My first stay was for 8 weeks and i enjoyed it. Kenny and Anne are great hosts and always make you feel welcome. The rooms maybe a bit dated but they are clean and comfortable. The location is good for the city.

Stayed at this guest house and thought it was the perfect place to stay as it was walking distance into Glasgow City centre the owners were verry welcoming. I would recomend to all friends and family!! Excellent value for money and rooms are very spacious. Thank you very much for our stay and making us feel so welcome.

My companion and I felt so happy with Alison Guesthouse that we extended our stay from a planned 3 nights to 5. Of course the main bonus is the hosts' kindness and helpfulness. But we had soap and clean towels, maybe not new but not threadbare, and sheets on our bed. And every time we thought something was amiss (like the down comforter was too warm for the season) we said so and the problem was corrected. So by all means I recommend this guest house. It is a bit far from the historic center if you're not driving, but we finally mastered tje Glasgow bus system and you can get there.
