About this listing

The space

Double room in a spacious and comfortable traditional Southside tenement flat, sharing all other facilities with the owner. The flat has many of it's original Victorian features and has been tastefully decorated throughout.

The shared spaces include a large, bright, well-equipped modern dining kitchen; a lounge with bay windows and comfortable sofas; and a modern shower room.

The bedroom is a bright double bedroom with loads of storage space and a new double bed (no lumpy mattress!)

Towels, bed linen, satellite TV and Wi-Fi provided.

The flat is a one minute walk from Cathcart station, with regular trains running into the city centre in 10mins. Bus route close by for city centre and West End. Less than 20 minutes to Glasgow Airport by car.

The flat is in a quiet block, but not far from the pubs and nightlife in the Southside of Glasgow, so it can be a chilled relaxing quiet haven, or a base for going out and partying, whatever you want!

It's a ten minute walk to the cafes/bars/nightlife in Shawlands or to the leafy Queens Park, and is close to Hampden football stadium.

On arrival I was greeted by Gordon and his companion Elsie, cute little French Bulldog puppy, Gordon made me feel very welcome and comfortable. The flat was very clean and having been given the keys was able to come and go as I please. We were both going to Hampden Park that evening for the Commonwealth games Athletics Session (coincidence) and walked up together, getting drenched in the process ! If I have the intention to be in the Glasgow area again I would certainly contact Gordon in the future.

The flat in south Glasgow was ideally situated for us, only 20 minutes walk from hampden park football ground, and a similar time by train to the city centre from the nearby Cathcart station. The flat was airy, clean and modern and well decorated. We expect that it would be fine for young people.

Staying with Gordon was like a slice of heaven to a tired traveller. The room was neat as a pin with fresh towels waiting on the bed! And donuts in the kitchen! A thorough tour was given of the apartment that answered all those pesky questions that make you feel high-maintenance. His home is very lovely and clean and spacious and he offers all to make you comfortable. It is a bit outside of city but it is cool because it right of the train line and very convenient. Thank you Gordon for sharing your home, it was truly a pleasure!!

I stayed with Gordon for a month while I was working at the King's Theatre. Gordon and his partner were very friendly and welcoming - meeting me at the airport and cooking me a lovely meal on my first night. The flat is nicely decorated throughout and very clean and tidy. The kitchen is very well equipped and a great place to prepare meals. The flat is a little way from the centre but it's comfortable and quiet so worth the journey.

My friend and I stayed at Gordon's flat for the weekend, and it was fantastic! Everything was very comfortable and clean and it was a perfect place to stay. Even though we were out most of the time, Gordon was really lovely to talk to when we had the chance and he recommended some great places to see. Glasgow is a really cool city, and staying at Gordon's flat only made it better. We would definitely recommend it!

I had a fantastic stay at Gordon's flat. Gordon is a great guy, very welcoming and always helpful. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable and the flat and facilities were spot on. I would definitely stay with Gordon again should I be up in Glasgow in the future.
