I stayed here for a week in June while working in Glasgow, as my pre-school children (and their gran, in a childcare capacity!) were with me this seemed preferable to a hotel.
In reality we got the best of both worlds, as the apartment was so well stocked, we didn't need the usual extra's you normally need for self catering - dishwasher tablets, laundry powder, washing-up liquid, some toiletries and even slippers were provided!!! We only needed to provide the food...
The location is ideal, as it is approx. 100 yards to a mini Tesco and Sainsburys, as well as lots of lovely cafes, which we enjoyed trying out (my kids especially liked Double Licks ice cream parlour). We didn't go into town, but it was an easy 15 minute walk to the SECC, where I was working, or an even easier 5 minute drive, even in rush hour at 8.15am.
In the meantime my children enjoyed trips with their Gran to the Kelvingrove Gallery (walking distance) and on the open top sightseeing bus, which has a bus stop 2 minutes walk from the apartment.
The apartment itself was very spacious for a holiday let, and everything was in immaculate condition. Prior to our arrival I was concerned how my 1 year old and 4 year old would deal with having showers, as there is no bath, but there is a baby bath in the cupboard, so they chose to use this instead! Likewise I was not relishing the prospect of sharing a bed with my 4 year old son (there are 2 kingsize beds - no singles), but there was a small mattress also provided in the cupboard, so we made this as an extra bed, and he was thrilled with his 'camp' bed. These extras are not mentioned on the website, but were a major plus for my family. A travel cot and highchair were also provided as standard.
All-in-all an excellent, good value option, highly recommended.
This is the second time I have stayed in this apartment . It's an ideal base to explore the west end of the city - Kelvingrove Park and Galleries, The University, Science and Transport Museums, Byres Road, Botanic Gardens, Hydro & SECC and the many new bars and restaurants in the Finnieston area - or to use as 'home base' for a family reunion in my 'home is where the heart is !' city of Glasgow :-)
There is a good selection of local shops and off road parking is an added bonus.
The apartment itself is excellent. Two good sized bedrooms with very comfy beds, large lounge and dining area, very well equipped kitchen and a good sized family shower room.
The owner of the apartment is 'pure dead brilliant' and has made sure the apartment has everything you might need. Nothing is too much bother.
It would be unfair of me to keep this hidden gem to myself.
