The Alamo Guest House, Glasgow
Expert reviews

“The Alamo may not sound a peaceful spot, but that’s exactly what this great place is. Opposite Kelvingrove Park, it feels miles from the city’s hustle, but several of the best museums and restaurants in town are close by.”

Frommers review:

“Remember the Alamo….next time you head to Glasgow. Because this little guesthouse is a delight, well located (it faces onto a corner of Kelvingrove Park and is within walking distance of the top sights), with many of its Victorian flourishes intact.”
