  • Cathy's room is located in the heart of Glasgow. It's very convenient for not only business purpose but also private trip. It takes only 5min walk to go to the Central Station. She is a very kind and open minded person. I arrived at Glasgow late evening , but she stayed up me. She served Scottish style breakfast and hand-made smoothie. The room is spacious enough to me. Furthermore, the bathtub is very wide and cutting edge function. I had a great time in Glasgow for her hospitality. Thank you Cathy.

    Thank you very much for this nice review. Happy that you liked my healthy smoothie. I wish you all the best. Cathy

  • The apartment is incredible. If it didn't have the spacious and comfy bedroom, impressive bathroom (with a jacuzzi), beautiful kitchen and prime location, it'd still be worthy for the absolutely awe inspiring view of the city. But, alas, it has all of those things and more: It has Cathy.

    Cathy is a fantastic host. She taught me the beauty of Scott`s Porage Oats, helped me find my bearings in Scotland and was an all around cool, relaxed, kind person. Cathy is the Chuck Norris of hosting.

    Thank you very much for this positive review Eduardo. Happy that you liked the porridge. Now you will have to try fish. I'll be a bit show off with so many compliments. Chuck Norris, here we are!

  • My colleague and I stayed in Cathy's flat whilst visiting Glasgow for work. Cathy's flat is very well located for the train station and has fantastic views over the river.

    The flat is very stylish but also feels homely so is ideal to unwind in after a day of work.

    Looking froward to my next visit to Glasgow and plan to stay here whenever I'm back.

  • The penthouse apt is fantastic. Prime location in the city centre right by the river..with amazing views of river and the city.
    The apt itself has all one needs, clean, quiet, warm, views, good size room, comfy bed, crisp duvet, and luxurious bathroom..
    I was working on this visit but was so impressed by Glasgow and its people that I want to return soon for a long weekend to enjoy more of the city

  • Cathy is a great host and her apartment is charming and perfectly located !
    We stayed for a weekend, the location was ideal coming from the airport with the shuttle bus, and the apartment is within Glasgow city center, on the edge of Merchant City.
    Clean and spacious room and bathroom.
    I would definitely come back to visit Cathy, and would recommend it to anyone.

    It will be a pleasure to see you both again.

  • We had a lovely time at Cathy's appartment ! She took the time to give us the best addresses in Glasgow for a walk and explained us a little bit more the (complicated) history of Scotland.
    The view on the river is amazing and the bedroom very comfortable.
    Thank you Cathy !

  • I had a great few days with Cathy in October. The flat is located in the heart of Glasgow's shopping district and was ideal for my commute to and from university in the Merchant City area. The room itself is clean and spacious and bathroom was perfect. Cathy's laid back, warm nature helped me feel very much at home. Would happily recommend!
