Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for 5 weeks, using it as a base to explore Scotland and parts south. The flat is well positioned in the city centre, a 10 minute walk to both the Queen Street and Central Train Stations. For shopping, the Enoch Centre, Argyle and Buchanan Streets are minutes away. The flat itself was very clean and had everything to make our stay most enjoyable. Kathleen was a very pleasant host and was prompt in responding to any questions we had. Would certainly consider this flat again should we return to Scotland.

Good location very central

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely 2 weeks in the apartment. Our daughter & son-in-laws first baby was due so we came over a few days before the 'due date',however, just as we were arriving our daughter rang to say that she was going to hospital as it looked like the baby was coming! Baby Edie arrived @ 3.20am the following morning! What great timing! The apartment was invaluable as we were able to cook a dinner every day & take it over to them! The apartment was very central, very well equipped & a lovely place to stay. We would highly recommend the apartment as a great place to stay. Thanks to the McKenna family for all their help.

Owner's Response: Delighted for you both to welcome your first grandchild. What an amazing Christmas gift. Glad that everything worked out well for you all and your were on hand to take of them during the first few weeks home. As you say a short walk from the Royal Infirmary Hospital / Princess Royal Maternity Hospital and very central for the rest of the city. Hope to see you all again soon.

Great flat

  • 5 of 5

Great location. No car needed. Kathleen was great, we were an hour late arriving and she was very gracious about it. Close to grocery stores, shopping and pubs. Will definitely be staying there on our next trip to Glasgow.

Great central location in Glasgow

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is within walking distance of George Square, Central Train Station, Queen Street Station, and loads of great shopping. We quickly found our favourite pub, Cairn Bar, which was about 3 blocks away. The apartment has one bedroom with a comfortable double bed and a pull out in the living room/dining area. The kitchen and bathroom were well stocked with things to start us out. There are 3 grocery stores within a 3 block radius. We had rented a car, but it was unnecessary. We found we liked taking the train better than driving. Live and learn. This apartment was perfect for us and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to be close to downtown. Thanks to Kathleen and John for letting us stay there.

Owner's Response: Your are most welcome. Thank you both for choosing our Glasgow City Centre Apartment. We like to meet our guests on arrival and welcome them to the city. We try to think of providing provisions that we ourselves would like especially after a long flight. Everything is handy and within walking distance from the apartment such as Tesco, Sainsbury and Lidl supermarkets as well as bars and restaurants in the Merchant City. The Cairns bar can be found in Miller Street and Wetherspoons in George Square both serving good food at value prices. Look forward to seeing you both again so you can complete your trip and tick the rest of the sights off your list.
