Enjoying a prime location in the desirable Merchant City area this apartment is perfectly placed. Just a short walk away there is a great selection of shops and award winning bars and restaurants. The main bus and rail stations are a short 10 - 15 min walk, as is Glasgow's Metro.

But don't just take our word for it, see some of our Guestbook comments.

We have stayed in Glasgow hotels on may occasions. this was the first time in an apartment. Barony bell is well appointed apartment, in a good location, just off Merchant Square. Ideal for Dinning. Within easy walking access of the city centre, Buchanan Street and argyle Street areas. yet you are able to relax. The apartment itself was spotless with everything you would need for a prolonged stay, we were there a week. Should you want/need anything in the food line there is a Tesco Direct at the bottom of the block which has sufficient for most needs. so you don't need to carry. As we arrived by bus travel was eased when not having to think about the extra weight. Highly recommended, we will be returning next year.

This apartment was perfect for our week's stay in Glasgow, as it was within easy walking distance of the Glasgow Green, (where the Pipe Band Championships were held and our main reason for visiting Glasgow), as well as close to the town centre and many shopping areas.

The 'hop on hop off' tour also has a stop just across the road near Merchant City, where there's Saturday craft market held weekly.

We were also thrilled to have a car park below the flat, as it meant that we could transfer our things easily up to the flat and not have to worry about returning the hire car, finding our way to the flat with all our things in hand, then do everything in reverse when it came time to continue our travels.

Moira was a delight to deal with - professional yet friendly and she has set the apartment up so it has all you would need for a comfortable week's stay. She also was easily contactable and helpful when required.

The Barony Bell apartment was just what we needed after two hectic weeks of road travel! We were so wanting space, a bath tub and laundry facilities as well as the comfort and lovely touches of Barony. Moira was extremely helpful and gracious as well. The apartment is on the edge of Merchant City, a vibrant area of restaurants and shopping, so convenient to walking Glasgow. The bed was extremely comfortable and the large bath a delight for my tall husband. The kitchen had all that one would desire for preparing a nice stay-in meal of which we took full advantage! We highly recommend Barony Bell apartment and hope to return to bonnie Scotland someday.

About Principal Apartments

Having worked in Property & Urban Regeneration for over 20yrs I decided to take a redundancy package and started my holiday letting business 3 years ago. I felt Glasgow was the ideal location being a welcoming and friendly city with fantastic architecture, great tourist attractions and fantastic restaurants and night life.

Principal Apartments purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Principal Apartments chose Scotland

I particularly liked this property as it is in a great location in the city centre and only a short walk from the main things people would wish to see and do.

As it is a modern building it has all the mod cons people need, in addition to being a cosy base from which to visit the city.

What makes this apartment unique

It's been said before but Location, Location, Location. The apartment gives easy access to all of Glasgows attractions.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Stayed here for two nights before/after our daughter's wedding. The bride's party was in the Barony Gate apartment - different street (just round the corner) but linked by same underground garage. The apartments were lovely - well appointed, spotless and spacious. Moira couldn't have been more helpful. The location wasn't that important to us but for a holiday visit to Glasgow it would be ideal.

I can't recommend it enough.

Cosy 1 bedroom apartment in the centre of city

  • 5 of 5

Four of us spent 2 days here, just a short walk away from all the main shopping streets & rail stations.

Apartment was warm & clean, bed was comfortable, kitchen well equipped including a few little extras (tea,coffee, biscuits etc)

Tesco express just round the corner if you need anything.

Bathroom clean & bright with the added touch of a few toiletries.

Moira met us on arrival & was very friendly and efficient, showing us where everything was & how things worked.

Overall was like a home from home & a very enjoyable stay.

Will definitely use again if I'm down & recommend in a heartbeat.

City centre convenience with home comforts

  • 5 of 5

We had to stay in Glasgow around Christmas, and we chose to stay at Barony Bell because we had the convenience of a city centre location with much better facilities than a hotel room.

It is pretty spacious for a one-bedroom city centre apartment and has all you need for a longer stay. It was warm, comfortable, very clean, neat and stylish. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is very well-appointed - all the comforts of home!

The apartment has secure parking underground, and keypad foyer entry so we were very relaxed during our stay, which meant we could concentrate on our holiday. Which we enjoyed very much, thank you, Moira!

The Perfect Glasgow Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It is really difficult to write a review on experience here, except for to say...PERFECT IN EVERY WAY. From the initial inquiry Moira made the experience easy and unforgettable. Moira met us at the apartment, showed us around and from that moment on it was like we were residents of this fine city, and not tourists.

The apartment was sparkling clean (even the common areas were very nice) and had every amenity required for an extraordinary rental experience. We felt right at home in the flat, and in the neighborhood. While there is no official parking, we never had an issue finding a spot right outside the apartment, and we felt safe enough to leave our brand new rent car on the street. Parking was reasonable at 2 pounds for 4 hours, so not an issue at all.

There is a Tesco Market right downstairs, so we had a lot of fun stocking up on groceries and cooking our own meals. The kitchen is way cool, and you can soon figure out where they "hid" the fridge and dishwasher!

Didn't have much time for sitting around, but the WiFi worked great and was faster then at home, so we were all set. This is a flat, so you do get to experience whatever the neighborhood is experiencing, but this just added to the charm of our visit.

Overall, this is one of the few places in the world that we visited that we would actually consider coming back to (there is so much of the world to see). Don't look any further, just call Moira and book this lovely flat... immediately!

Owner's Response: Hi John, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the great review. There is so much to see in the city and the west coast of Scotland I hope you'll manage to visit us again. We've now managed to secure some parking within the building so parking should be even more convenient. Thanks again. Moira
