“Awesome - worth every penny!”
Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

Our first visit to Scotland and such a treat to find this accommodation! Lovely spacious, comfortable double room. Scrupulously clean. Recommend this without a doubt! Friendly owners - family business - would stay here again if we came this way again.

Stayed September 2013, travelled as a couple

We found this an excellent B & B. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Would highly recommend it. Friendly helpful staff who went above and beyond. Breakfast was wonderful with a great choice. Central location to visit the area. We will be back.

Such a warm welcome and lovely fresh made to order breakfast (they even had gluten free bread). Nice room with the most comfortable bed ever. The room and public areas are immaculate, as was the bathroom. This would be a great place to stay for Glasgow if you want to be outside of the city and have a car. Very easy access to and from the motorway.

Couldn't have asked for more. Rachel made us feel really welcome. The rooms were of a very high standard for a B&B. Tastefully decorated and modern with high spec equipment. The bathrooms were fab, Jacuzzi bath and separate shower. Sharon made us a quality breakfast in the morning, it set us up for the journey home. I would definately use this guest house again.
Well done Rachel and Sharon.

Best wishes Steve and Judy

I stayed at The Old School House while I was working temporarily in Glasgow. I stayed 3 nights a week and I think I was in almost every room and they are all to a very high standard!! The service from the girls is excellent and so is the breakfast. It is perfectly located adjacent to the M74 and I was never bothered once by the road noise.
I would recommend the guest house to everyone and I will definitely use it again!!

Room Tip: Ask for room 3, it has a Jacuzzi bath!!!

We had a most comfortable stay at the Old School Guest House. The room we had was very well appointed, clean, bright and airy. The beds were very comfortable and good quality linen which made for a very good nights sleep. The location is faultless if you are travelling in the area using the motorway network, couldn't be easier to access the main roads and although you can hear the traffic the building is very well insulated against noise so we didn't have any issues there. The owners and staff are all very friendly and made a great deal of effort to ensure our stay was comfortable. Breakfast was cooked to order, with a good choice of alternatives available, we particularly enjoyed the coffee, not just filter coffee but choice of cappucino, latte etc. Car parking is good and plentiful. The downstairs twin room is suitable for guests with mobility problems, the bathroom spacious and well appointed, the shower is a walk in type with a small step and glass door. We stayed twice, and would thoroughly recommend a stay if you are in the area, very reasonable prices for such a high standard place. Thank-you to the owners and staff for our enjoyable visits!

Used the Old School Guesthouse as a base whilst visiting friends. Well priced and friendly hotel with attached coffee shop. Room was well equipped and comfortable, especially the bed. It was a little noisy with the busy road outside, so maybe book something to the rear of the building. You can get a great brew in the dining room, and breakfast is delicious. This is a good place to base yourself if exploring the local area, and very reasonably priced. Will book again when back up in Scotland.
Tip-For a cheap and cheerful meal out in Larkhall, we went to Canton Cuisine on the highstreet. Pretty good food at a good price.

Room Tip: Rear of building maybe, as road outside is busy.
