Charming Victorian Period flat, with designer features but all the modern comforts of a home from home.

The space

This newly re-furbished apartment has three new and very comfortable double beds, one with en-suite shower room. All bedrooms and the living room have a flatscreen TV/DVD. The fully equipped kitchen is brand new, with washing machine, dishwasher, microwave etc. There is a separate sitting room with sofa and chairs to relax, and an iPod dock/speaker, which is also a charger. The central heating gives instant hot water, and there is everything you would expect in a home away from home, I have just installed super fast fibre optic wireless broadband, so you can enjoy internet access and emails while you are staying. The username and password are given in the instruction manual once your booking is confirmed. Fresh bedding and towels are provided as standard. Please note that the price is 99GBP for the first guest, with a modest 12GBP additional charge for every subsequent guest up to a maximum of six guests. This is to cover cleaning, laundry and utilities.

Located near to Charing Cross, and very close to Glasgow University, It is almost on the edge of Kelvingrove Park with its Art Gallery. Nearby Gibson Street has endless bars, cafes and late night shops. Byres Road with its restaurants, shops and Waitrose supermarket is an easy walk. Kelvinbridge underground will whisk you into the centre in minutes, but there are also lots of buses and taxis which are quite affordable in this small city.
Please note that as I live in London, you will be given the keys by a friend who lives close by, or the Housekeeper, Jacqueline.
A word about check in/out. You must check out by 11 am at the very latest. Check OUT is very simple, as you you just post the last set of keys through the letterbox when you leave, and send me a quick message to say that the flat is ready for the housekeeper to service. For check in, we will always try to be flexible, and try to meet your arrival time, but do please ask if you think you are likely to arrive particularly late or early. If there is a departing guest on your arrival day, we will need enough time to service the flat before we let you in. This will usually be after 2.30 pm. As the key holder has to be on stand-by, it is extremely important that you arrive at the arranged time, so that he or she is not left waiting endlessly. If you are delayed for any reason, please be courteous and let them know as soon as you can. Once you have a confirmed booking, you will have access to their number and email, so that you can contact them directly.

Parking in Glasgow - it's never simple. I usually have a car when I am up, and here's what I know. Free parking first. There is a little lane just behind the school opposite. If you can get in there it's free. I usually manage this. Alternatively there is free parking on the other side of Great Western Road in Belmont Street. This is a six minute walk from the flat. A little patience will usually get you a space. Then there is the park and ride at Kelvinbridge Underground station. If you are using the underground a whole day's parking costs 5 pounds, and you can leave the car there until 11. 30 pm, when the car park auto-locks. I think you can leave the vehicle overnight for free if you are sure you will not need it until 8 am the next morning. 2 mins walk from the flat. Parking in a metered space is easy and not too expensive - you pay from 8 am to 6 pm, then it's free. It is not ridiculously expensive, and you pay at a meter. I have never yet had to resort to this, but there are always spaces to be had. In short, you will always be able to park, but may occasionally have to pay. I tried for a parking permit, but it is not transferable to another car so of no use to me or my guests. Hope that is some help.

I really want you to enjoy your stay, so I do not want to impose endless rules. The house is newly refurbished, so please take great care of it, and leave it nice and tidy, ready for the housekeeper to get it all cleaned up. I expect you not to leave dirty dishes for the housekeeper to deal with, and please no naked flames of any kind, e.g. candles, incense and absolutely no smoking inside the flat. We have been having a problem with the occasional guest leaving all the lights switched on for the duration of their stay, and the bulbs burning out. I would ask you to be considerate and switch off lights when not in use, and especially check that all lights are out at night, and when you go out. The roller blinds in the rooms need to be treated gently, but should not prove to be a problem to operate. Please don't try to open or close them too fast, or pull too hard on the cords. Other than that, I would just expect you to treat the place as if you owned it! Oh and no parties - this is not a party flat!
Many thanks for taking the trouble to read this. Have a great stay, and enjoy Glasgow and the apartment.

Allen's flat is quite lovely, spacious and well- appointed. Our family of six including four children, enjoyed this clean and thoughtful flat in a great location for seeing not only Glascow but also Edinburgh. The host was helpful and thoughtful and very easy to communicate with whenever necessary. His flat was clean and comfortable. We would absolutely stay here again.

Allen and Tracy were great - easy in and out and communication was excellent. Great little neighborhood - we enjoyed walking around and exploring with what little time we had. Relatively short cab ride from the airport. The flat was comfortable for the five of us. Our stay was short (2 nights) and we didn't use the kitchen, but it seemed very serviceable. Great restaurants nearby. Thanks Allan!
