Myself mother and aunt stayed in the Boswell flat for a weekend prior to my graduation. We were very impressed by the flat which is quite luxurious. What set the place apart was the attention to detail of our host Michele who went to a lot of trouble to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Not only was every household item we could think of already in the flat there also was detailed files on the local area and tourist activities. The flat is great value for money in a quiet location and the money we saved on not going to a hotel was used to rent a car which still worked out a lot cheaper. We had such a great time staying in the Boswell flat we would recommend it to anyone and will be going back if ever in Glasgow again.

This holiday rental was a delight to stay in. The level of service was of the highest order. The location perfect and the amenities many and splendid.
The property is tastefully decorated, and exceptionally well appointed up to, and in many instances, exceeding luxury status. Michele, the proprietor, has truely thought of everything to make her guests' time at the apartment both relaxing and enjoyable. I was very impressed by her careful attention to detail and thoughtfulness throughout my stay.

Having travelled on business and privately for over 35 years, this was the best S/C apartment I have stayed in. The attention to detail was unbelievable. Everything you could need is there (directions to local interest locations, shops, restaurants etc., books, games, DVD's, large TV, well appointed kitchen fully stocked with the "essentials"). The furnishing was very tasteful and the amenities (inc free WiFi) superb.
Michelle is very proud of the apartment and what she has achieved and so she should be.
The only criticism I could have is the complexity of the booking process and repetitive information sent by email. I am sure this can be streamlined and this did not detract at all from the overall Boswell experience.

Thank you for your excellent review and all your comments are very much appreciated. The Booking Process attempts to keep guests as informed and as secure about their Booking as possible so that there are no hiccups with Arrival procedure, etc. Based on past experience, I have found better to over-inform rather than under-inform. Some guests like to read the T&C's before they and some guests don't - but they have got to be their in an honest Booking Process.

Stayed in Boswell 8 for around a month, while myself and my Fiance were required to move out duriing refurbishment of our home.

Really great place to stay, and was a home away from home, everything that you could call "home comforts" were catered for superbly...some lovely touches were handled by Michele such as wine on arrival, some sweets and fresh fruit awaiting for us. Although only a one bedroom apartment, the layout is very nice and has plenty of space for living.

Also a great location for nipping in to city centre and the shawlands area.

“Highly recommended for Glasgow city breaks”

people found this review helpful

As locals staying in Glasgow over the festive period in order to visit family and friends, we needed a city base. This flat proved to be an excellent choice, combining home-from-home comforts and the highest standards of cleanliness with well-thought-through luxury features such as the fantastic large-screen satellite TV and DVD, and a bedroom to hotel standards. There are cafes, restaurants and shops all within easy reach in nearby Shawlands, and buses and trains to the city centre are within a 15-minute walk.

Although we didn't come as holidaymakers, it was very clear that the proprietor has provided all the information that a newcomer to the city could possibly need: maps, guidebooks and suggestions for family activities.

We had a great stay overall and we would recommend this without hesitation.

“A Home Away From Home”

Originally from Glasgow, but now living abroad, I have rented here primarily when visiting my parents as they have moved into a smaller apartment located very nearby, and they do not have an additional bedroom.

I have now stayed in both the lower and upper apartments, and both are beautifully decorated, with modern facilities, and are exceptionally clean. Both Wi-Fi and cable TV on large televisions are available, and the kitchens are beautifully equipped so you can cook yourself if you want to.

Ideally, centrally located on the South Side of the city, both trains, busses and taxis are very easy to get into the city centre, which is very close by.

The lady who owns the properties is exceptionally friendly, professional and just a joy to work with.

It is a real joy to stay here and I cannot recommend it highly enough

“A very comfortable stay in a cosy and well-looked after place”

Boswell Upper is a cosy and comfortable place. Booking was easy once we had read all the information (quite a few attachments). It´s all very well done and the flat is nice and cosy. The pictures online give a good impression of it. Don´t be put off by the amount of information on the website. I suppose it is done like that to advertise the flat and to make quite clear what you can expect and what is expected of you (payment, deposit) before you arrive.

Michele is doing a great job and very conscientious about keeping the flat in a good condition. I can warmly recommend staying in this apartment. Thanks again, Michele! We´re going to return.

Thank you very much for your positive review. I agree there is a lot of information but I have found with past experience that it is better to over inform rather than not give enough information. I just try to be as honest as possible so that guests have a good idea of what to expect. It's all about trying to provide an excellent service.
