Nice and very comfortable flat

  • 5 of 5

We are a French family of five and on the day of our arrival, Alan was so nice as to pick us up at the airport. He drove us to the flat and on the way talked to us about Glasgow and its inhabitants.

The flat was perfectly clean and comfortable and Alan offered us some typical Scottish food and drinks.

The flat is well situated and you can easily walk or take the bus to go to the city center. It is very quiet as well.

We really enjoyed our holidays and we highly recommend the flat.

Wonderful holiday in Glasgow

  • 5 of 5

We (I, my son, 15, my daughter, 10, and my son's friend, also 15) stayed a week at the Flat on the Green and had a wonderful time. The flat was clean, beautifully furnished, comfortable, and included all modern amenities. The owner, Mr. Macdonald, was attentive and kind and immediately attended to minor problems when they arose. The flat literally overlooks Glasgow Green, and is a short walk from the People's Palace, which turned out to be one of my favorite places in Glasgow. We were also quite close to an amazing playground, which the children loved, and to the Barras, which we roamed through on the weekend. Buses in the area were frequent, but it was only a twenty-minute walk to the heart of Glasgow. Even now, close to the end of October, we are all still talking about what a wonderful time we had.

A good place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This flat suited our needs perfectly. It was clean and tidy and tastefully decorated. A modern well fitted kitchen and newly refurbished bathroom. Alan met us on arrival and was extremely helpful and left us a welcome pack with milk, tea, bread, wine and more. There was plenty of free parking outside, which suited us well. The flat overlooked the Green and was sunny and bright. You can walk into the park and to the riverside walk along the banks of the Clyde. It was very convenient to central Glasgow and Alan had even offered to meet us if we had come by train. He couldn't have been more helpful. It was good value and I would definitely go back or recommend it to friends visiting Glasgow.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Apartment on the Green during the last week in July and found the apartment to be exactly as pictured. Alan was there to greet us and even supplied us with bread, wine, and some necessities (including haggis). He was a most welcoming and gracious host, and we were delighted to meet him. The apartment was within walking distance of the Hop-On, Hop-Off bus, and we used it for most of our touring in Glasgow. West Brewery is also within walking distance, and we had two good meals there.
