“A great place to stay”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Have just had 3 nights at the Alamo. A great place to stay. A warm welcome from Steve and Emma. Room very comfortable and wonderful breakfast in an attractive dining room. A very good location just by the Kelvingrove Park. Highly recommended

I have stayed in the Alamo about 6 times and have always felt very comfortable and welcome. I stayed with my daughter and her three children who all thought the facilities were wonderful. The breakfast is really scrummy and sets you up for the day. I would thoroughly recommend the Alamo Steve and Emma are really lovely so I look forward to my next visit!

Breakfast was 1st class. I would definitely recommend this guest house- loved it and would not hesitate making a return stay. Many thanks'"

Nicely place between the West End and the centre it offers fantstic views of the Kelvingrove Museum and Glasgow Uni. .. especially at night if you have a front facing room. The owner was very welcoming and helpful and has done the refurb and design work himself. The room we had was stunning combining the traditional features of the room with a modern design flourish and lighting that really set it off ... especially the bath. Breakfast was great and the breakfast room housed display of paintings by a local artist (who just happened to staying over that night and was at breakfast as well). This will be our first choice on returns to Glasgow.

Room Tip: Can't remember the room number (8 I think) but it was on the right of the building as you enter...

"My husband and I spent a lovely week at the Alamo Guest House in April/May 2014. The Guest House owners Steve and Emma were absolutely wonderful. They were extremely hospitable, warm and friendly! The daily breakfast of very substantial and delicious and set us up beautifully for our daily outings. At the days end it was lovely to return to our beautiful room and to Steve and Emma\'s cheerful welcome. The House is in a fantastic location and has beautiful views over the Kelvingrove Museum, University of Glasgow and the surrounding park. I would highly recommend The Alamo Guest House -- the only thing we didn\'t like--was having to leave and fly back to Canada! Thank you so much to Emma and Steve for the pleasure of your company and for a lovely stay at your Guest House. Sincerely, Dave and Joanne'
"

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the house with ensuite and beautiful view of the Kelvingrove Museum.

The Alamo did not disappoint. We are in room 3 for 3 nights, on the lower floor, which is beautifully decorated, appointed and nice and quiet. It has been very handy for restaurants, the sight seeing bus, a day driving up to Loch Fyne and visiting friends. Will stay here again next time we are in Glasgow.

Room Tip: Can recommend room 3.

Alamo Guest House is such a beautiful and quiet place to stay. Much more personable than your standard hotel, the staff here is very attentive to your every need and request. A very delicious home cooked breakfast is served buffet style in the mornings. You'll never run short of things to do in the area - all within reasonable walking distance. Even if your room is not an en-suite, the shared facilities are always kept clean and available. I never had a problem even when the house was fully booked. Gorgeous views of the park, University, and Kelvingrove museum. I will most definitely be returning here and sending my friends and family! Such a delightful experience!
