Kirklee Hotel
Ranked #75 of 93 Hotels in Glasgow
Reviewed 9 March 2014

I couldn't get a hotel in the city for a reasonable price. so went further afield.
This little lovely Guest House is warm and cosy.
We had the family room it was large, warm and spacious, big bathroom which was warm too, The only thing about the bathroom is that people need to be aware of is the hot tap is very hot !!!. Tea/coffee etc. was available in the room so was a hair dryer and telephone if needed.
Breakfast was brought to your room on a tray, a choice of Breakfast, Cooked or Continental, and there was plenty too, it was lovely to have breakfast in your room, sit in your PJ's and eat breakfast from a small dining table and chairs, in a warm room watching a little tv... very pleasant
and relaxing.
I would definatley go back for a wee stay, it is about 10 minutes taxi ride from Glasgow City Centre, easy to find once you come off the M8..,

This was my first time to Scotland and I was traveling for a job with the University of Glasgow. This family-owned hotel is located in the quiet and beautiful west side of Glasgow. The appearance was wonderful, with a gorgeous sitting room, cozy bedroom, and nice decorations throughout. The breakfast that was brought to my room each morning was delicious and filling. The staff were very friendly and helpful, were accommodating of the odd times that I needed to arrive and leave, and helped me with various needs, such as ordering delivery and arranging a cab for me. I would recommend this for a range of purposes, since it's a 10 minute walk to the subway it is a great place to stay for business, leisure, or sightseeing.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Kirklee - the service was excellent, a tasty breakfast and a place charming and full of character. I look forward to staying with you again sometime.

Disappointed in hotel after looking at their website...nice people, good nice but not enough breakfast and no cereal. Only cooked breakfast, and 4slices of toast with no option of getting more nor a top up pot of tea as they brought your breakfast to your room. Room was tired, need a good makeover, took ages for hot water to come through the shower. Mold around the bath, wallpaper coming off, but bedding was clean although bed was soft and tended to dip in the middle. T.V was too small, hard to see from the bed.
Wasn't worth the money we paid as we felt the rooms downstairs would be nicer and bigger so felt we were subsidizing these rooms, as we were in what can only be described as attic rooms.

We had a lovely stay here. We were keen to stay somewhere we could park our car. We were only 2 mins walk from Great Western Road, from there it was about a 10 min bus journey to town, also, the owner showed us how to walk to Byres Road(about 10 mins away) where we were able to get on the "clockwork orange" (subway). Our room was massive-we asked for a double but it also had 2 single beds. Very comfortable, with a beautiful cooked breakfast. It was great to have ready access to the town centre but be in such a quiet wee terrace facing onto a park.We would definitely come back here. Lovely!

Room Tip: Be aware our room was up a lot of stairs, but we loved it, especially the view over the wee park and...

This delightful hotel is within walking distance to shopping, dining (Byers Road) and Glasgow's Botanic Gardens. Although you must be prepared to walk up stairs it is worth it when you turn your key on the lovely appointed rooms with their old world charm. The owners and staff persons are lovely and go out of their way to assist you with bags, information and good service. The breakfasts were delicious and served in our room hot and with a smile.
The tub is not easily accessible as it is quite deep and the lighting in the bathroom requires an upgrade.

Helpful host - Douglas was full of local knowledge and welcoming. Easy walk into the city's attractions. Clean comfy room upstairs with an expansive guest lounge. Lovely breakfast brought to the room old-style by the chambermaid. Authentic and homely, a great Glasgow stay.
