A Hidden Gem
In Glasgow for my daughters graduation and picked this Guest house for location and previous reviews .
We were certainly not let down.
We were made very welcome by Steve and his family. The room was well appointed with a huge "Comfy" bed !. Great nights sleep !. Everything you could think of for breakfast , cereals, yoghurts, croissants and of course a beautiful cooked breakfast !. Definitely worth a visit away from your boring chain hotels!!
Alamo Guest House
Good stay but room was too small and shared bathroom.
I am glad that you had a good stay with us.
I am confused though with your negative point of view regarding the size of the room and the position of the bathroom. This has negatively reflected in your scoring of the room and value for money.
You chose to book the following :
A Standard double . The full description of this room is given and I am sorry that you did not read the description given that appears before you book as well as on your booking confirmation:
Standard Double Room sleeps 2. Breakfast included. Non Smoking
Requested, 2 Adults. Small Standard double, Antique period furnishings with Wall mounted HD Freeview Flat screen LCD TV and DVD player (Slate tiled, underfloor heated Digital Shower and Bathrooms, shared facilities, with a sink in the room)
We do have 10 rooms in the guest house to choose from and 3 of these are not ensuite. All our rooms are individual and priced according to their size, bathroom facilities and view. There are full descriptions and pictures of the rooms on our website. Ensuite rooms have their own bathroom and standard rooms do not. We call room 8 a small standard
double because it is small. This is why you were given this room because you booked a small standard double. If you had booked an Ensuite double or for example our luxury ensuite double with views of the park you would have been booked into room 12, a much larger room.
On your floor room 8 shares facilities with just one other room ( room 7 ).There is one bathroom with shower, toilet and bath and also a shower room with separate toilet. These are all very clean and modern. Unfortunately due to the over run of finishing the other shared facilities bathroom upstairs one other room had to use the bathroom facilities as well during this weekend. Now due to very recent major renovations we no longer have 6 rooms but 3 sharing the 3 bathrooms and the price of rooms has not changed to reflect this which is good. Thus offering even better value for money I believe.
I do hope you will not be put off staying with us again and if you do decide to stay again please contact us and we will be able to help you in your choice of rooms next time.
