We were in Glasgow for our daughters graduation from the university. We spent 7 days at the Alamo. This was our third visit to the Alamo. Emma and Steve are the best hosts you could ask for, the serv ice they provide is excellent. The same can be said for the staff working there, everyone was always friendly and willing...

We had a very nice time at the Alamo--it didn't disappoint. Be aware that the rooms are mostly on a "ground floor" which feels partly like a basement, and partly on the back like ground level. Wonderful hosts, very welcoming, and a nice locations--very quiet! Across from the large parks of Kelvingrove, near museums, easily walkable to the Mackintosh sites...

This was my second visit to the Alamo and it was just as good as I remembered. Nothing is too much trouble - Steve even popped round with toothpaste for me at 10.30 at night! It's tastefully decorated and really homely. It's also in the perfect location. Lastly I have to mention Flash - what a cutie :)

Dear Steve and Emma, Thanks so much for making our stay in Glasgow so wonderful! John and I so enjoyed your lovely guesthouse and you made us feel like family. Our room was beautiful as well as comfortable, we were especially happy to find your king sized bed to accommodate John's height! The wi-fi was a plus in keeping up...

We really enjoyed our stay here. Firstly our bed was extremely comfortable, a good quality mattress and good linens. Our room was large and clean and very quiet, even though it was at the front overlooking the park. The bathroom was very clean with an excellent shower. The linens and towels were of good quality. Breakfast was good, with lots...

We stayed at the Alamo Guest House for two nights. The Victorian-era Alamo clearly reflects the personality of its owner Steve, who spent five months (much of the time on his back ala Michaelango) decorating the ceiling of the breakfast room. There is great attention to the specific details of the decor, most especially in the deluxe first-floor room with...

Our stay here was overall very good. The hostess was very friendly and answered all our questions very well. She also provided us with maps and information on the city. The room was spacious and comfortable. It was not en-suite, which was made known to us before purchasing. However there was a sink and mirror in the room which we...

We had a wonderful room looking toward the Kelvingrove Gallery and Museum. It was wonderfully decorated and fitted with many wondrous pieces of technology, more than we needed for sure. Only drawback was that there was no shower cubicle, just an open bath that you sit in and shower. Wonderful linen and good toiletries added to the appeal. I like...

I stayed at the Alamo recently for my first visit to Glasgow for a stag golf weekend and was very impressed. A perfect location in the West end of Glasgow with very comfortable rooms and beautiful decor. The staff were very friendly and breakfasts spectacular. The perfect location for anyone visiting Glasgow.
