Our family-run hotel has an intimate feel amongst the bustle of the city’s cultural hub, the West End. On the doorstep of the Kelvingrove hotel you’ll find open green spaces at Kelvingrove Park with the River Kelvin running through it, the bars and restaurants of Finnieston and the bright lights of Sauchiehall Street, all within a few minutes’ walk.
There are plenty of buses, over- and underground trains available close by if you’d like to visit the city centre or further afield. Taxi costs in the city are reasonable and it’s often possible to catch one on-street outside or speak to one of our members of staff who will happily pre-book a ride for you.
Getting here is easy with a regular bus service (number 77) running from Glasgow Buchanan Bus Station every 10 minutes, dropping outside our door. Alternatively, catch the Subway to Kelvinhall from the city centre and you’ll find us just a short walk away. If you’re arriving by car, take junction 19 on the M8 and your Sat Nav will direct you a further 5 minutes along the road to our hotel. Glasgow International Airport can be reached on road within around 20 minutes.
