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.

  • 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.

  • What a friendly guy Gordon is! We were impressed by how cool, clean and modern his home was and the previous reviews were spot on! We shared a drink and talked about our Glasgow plans and Gordon and his friends offered some great advice and we came up with the perfect itinerary. Thanks for the room and your hospitality.

  • I had a wonderful time staying at Gordon's flat. The flat itself was conveniently located close to public transportation to the city center. The flat is kept very neat and tidy and decorated to a high standard! Gordon was a great host who was very helpful and a real pleasure to talk to. My only issue was with myself for booking such a short stay!

  • The lovely pictures of the flat and warm reviews of Gordon certainly didn't disappoint. Gordon was welcoming and kind and pleasant to talk to, making mine and my friend's stay in Glasgow really enjoyable. Would recommend a thousand times over.

  • Gordon met us upon arrival and helped us with our luggage. He is a very nice and friendly person. The bedroom and kitchen were spacious. The apartment was only a five minute walk from a train stop, which took you to center city in about 8-10 minutes.
    Gordon helped us with local information also.
    We jhighly recommend Gordon's place to others going to Glasgow.

  • Where to begin,
    1.Gordon is such a nice guy!
    2. Flexible with our dates where he could help out (My partner and I accidentally booked our flight for the day after our original booking....Gordon could help out as his room was free on that date, this was so helpful)
    3. Great location and directions
    4. Fantastic communication, he responded to our requests very promptly through (website hidden) and often within a minute of sending one through to him.
    5. Room was presented perfectly, fresh towels and linen, soft bed and a very nice warm feel to the apartment.
    6. Kitchen was available to use and the equipment was all clean and well looked after.

    My partner and I highly recommend Gordon to all visiting Glasgow. The apartment is located about 10-15min on the train into the main city and with trains running roughly every 10min it is a very cheap and direct way into town.

    All in all a wonderful experience. 5 stars.
