We stayed there for one night. The owner was incredibly nice and helpful, told us how to get to all the places we wanted to go and gave some extra inforamtion. The place is nice but in our opinion a bit overpriced regarding the standard. The house is located in a pleasant neighourhood, quite away from the city center, but easily accesible by the car. No problem with free parking on the street. Rooms in Scottish style, romantic and well equipped. Bathroom on the other hand was rather small, in much lower standard. Windows with cobwebs, difficult to open. Bed uncomfortable, small even for two slim persons. Breakfast very good, guest could choose between continental and Scottish.

Room Tip: take the room on first floor

Thank you for your review. Sorry you felt it was a little overpriced. Our prices are the same or less than comparable guest houses in glasgow for peak holiday times. As this is a C listed building the windows are original and do require a lot of mantenance. We are currently working our way around them hence the stiff bathroom window, but the room window opens easily. Regarding the cob webb, I can only apologise it has been missed during cleaning.
The bed is a normal double bed size.
best wishes

Reading through the reviews, we arrived with big expectancies.
When arriving to the address and parking in the street next to a highway junction we got a bit worried about the noise, but entering the house the complete silence was reassuring. The building and the enterieur very nice, the host is welcoming and helpful.
The breakfast was perfect.
Half mile from the house there are some pubs.
From the three rooms in the mansard we got that one which is facing to the street (Room 12).
We visited Glasgow during a heatwave (cca. 28 Celsius), and we were accommodated in a room without aircondition in the mansard, streetside and facing to the west (=very very hot). If we opened the window, the noise of the highway junction was unbearable.
Plus: next to the house is standing a pylon for the street-lighting that was beaming the light onto my bed below the window (fortunately it was a sliding shade inside the window).
Because of the noise the only solution was keeping closed the window, however even with ears plugged we could not sleep because of the heat and the noise.
Getting up in the morning tired to death and sweaty wanted a quick shower. Next surprise: The same shower-head which we used in the evening was not functioning in the morning (=no water). The tap filling the bath-tub was in order (but having a bath in the tub took much more time).
I do not question the other good reports, however one thing is sure: DO NOT ACCEPT the room in the mansard facing to the west (Room 12).

Thank you for your review, the good and the not so good bits. In Scotland you will find very few guest houses with air conditioning, it is not usually necessary! this heatwave is an exception.
The shower as you could see the night before is working, the on dial requires pushed in before turning, there was plenty of water available. Unfortunately we can do nothing about the traffic noise, some people are more sensitive to it than others. All our velux windows are fitted with a blackout blind. If you had asked we may have been able to move you to a room at the back which is quieter. There are very nice licenced resturants 5 mins walk away but you had stated you only wanted to go to mainly drinking pubs hence the 1/2 mile walk.

We were planning a quick 4 day trip in Scotland and had booked tickets to go to Bruce Springsteen that night. Glasgow is not a huge city so we wanted a place in an area with the large older English style homes. Manor Park was exactly what we where looking for. The place is well laid out for a guest house with nice art from the Fiona's husband on the walls. The bedrooms were both clean with decent ensuites and the breakfast in the morning was perfect for getting rid of the previous nights excess. For dinner they recommended the restaurant nearby called McMillans, what a great find. All in all a nice place, with nice people, will stay here again

My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights. Everything about the guest house was enjoyable. We were even accommodated with a trayed breakfast when we had an early train out of town our last day. Although there is a major road nearby, we heard nothing. Scott and Fiona were just so warm and welcoming. I would stay here again without hesitation and would recommend it to others.

Located right across (via underpass) from Victoria Park, in Glasgow's residential/trendy West End, this very special heritage property, that relatively new owners have kept up and appointed to the max, has a real nurturing quality about it.

A combination of classic furniture and draperies, well-planned lighting, and original art dress the common areas as well my own large, beautiful room: comfortable canopy bed, window seat, show pillows, armchair, TV, armoire, windowed bathroom, in-room tea and coffee -- and amazing shortbread cookies. A short walk connects this property to good public transit.

Manor Park GH is conveniently equidistant from both downtown and the airport (10 minute drives), however, it may be a bit tricky to find the first time -- if you are lacking some simple but essential information: First, it is on Balshagray Drive. Please note that, in what I found to be true Scottish town-planning, there is also an avenue, drive, crescent, place, and lane -- all of the same name. (You access the neighbourhood from city centre via Dumbarton Road; a town also shares this name.) If you pronounce it without a Scottish accent, ie, "Balsha-gray", no-one will have a clue what you're talking about. It is pronounced "Balsha-garrray" with the 'r' rolled so heavily, it sounds more like "Balshagga-rrudddy". Important info when asking directions or communicating with taxi/bus drivers. What worked for me was to just blankly repeat "Balsha, Balsha" and wait for the other person to fill in the blank.

The train station (in City Centre) is a reasonable cab fare away. If you have more time and are more adventurous, #3 bus also connects. When coming to the property from there, ask to be dropped at the stop "before the round-about at the end of Dumbarton Road", then walk just a few short blocks northwest right to the door.

Probably better to cab it to/fro the airport because the airport bus that you access at the same round-about area is not an express. For the short distance to Manor Park GH the bus ride takes about 45 minutes/cost around 5 pounds.

Your hosts at Manor park will be able to sort out and arrange any transport for you as well as give you really good information and recommendations about Glasgow proper as well as itineraries out of town. I found them very sweet and accessible about everything, doing quite a bit to make me feel more than welcome and assure a pleasant stay.

Breakfast was substantial with coffee that's worth a mention. You can go from light continental to full Scottish breakfast with delicious meats and potato pancakes. I even braved a very "wee taste" of haggis". Impressive too was that, on the day I was to leave before breakfast, they provided a full continental breakfast tray for me beforehand. Very appreciated touch that too many places never think to offer.

If you are looking for more than just a bed and shower between sightseeing trips and you want a really nice place to rest and savour your time in Glasgow, you can't beat this lovely place.
