Fabulous, extremely light and spacious RUSKIN ROOM with small en suite in my apartment built in 1855. Rate includes breakfast. Near Glasgow University in the heart of the West End. City centre 10-15 minutes. I also have another HAMILTON ROOM listed.

The space

I HAVE ANOTHER ROOM listed as "Super comfortable room (The Hamilton)" which may be available if this one is booked. You can find it on my profile page.

A SELF-SERVICE CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST is included in the room rate. The fridge in your room will be stocked with breakfast items for you to sample at your leisure. Breakfast includes: fruit, yogurt, a selection of cereals, bread, butter, marmalade, jam, tea, coffee, milk and orange juice. Please let me know if you have any dietary requirements and I will do my best to accommodate you. I provide semi skimmed milk and generally Irish soda bread, so please let me know if you prefer a different type.

IN THIS VERY LIGHT AND SPACIOUS ROOM there is: a small en-suite shower room; a super king-sized bed; a cupboard to hang clothes in; a chest of drawers; a monitor to watch DVDs on; an armchair with foot stool; a dining table and chairs, a (silent) small fridge, a Nespresso coffee machine, kettle and tea making things. I provide all bedlinen, towels, bathrobes and a hair dryer. The room is lockable and you will be given your own key. There is also WiFi throughout the flat. I have a travel cot available. Please let me know if you would like this and I will reserve it for your room.

WHO LIVES HERE? Other than myself, I have two rooms listed on Airbnb, so I may have guests in the other room during your stay. I also rent a room to an artist friend of mine, which she uses as a painting studio when she is not working as a tutor.

PRIVACY & HOUSEKEEPING. I don't enter the guest room during your stay in order to give you privacy. If you are staying for a week or more, I will arrange for a convenient time to clean your room and change the bed linen.

Guest access

MY GUESTS ARE WELCOME TO MAKE USE OF the kitchen (including tea, coffee, sugar, milk, herbs, spices and oils). I keep a shelf free in one of the kitchen cupboards for your groceries and also a shelf in the kitchen fridge. The living room is for the hosts use only, but the guest rooms are spacious and the dining kitchen is large enough to hang out in. I aim to make you to feel at home here. I provide semi skimmed milk, so please let me know if you prefer a different type.

Interaction with guests

I LIKE TO GREET GUESTS MYSELF. If I can't be at home when you would like to arrive, I use the key safe box next to the front door. I would arrange this in advance, email you the security code for the box and be able to give a rough time of when I will be back to meet you.

I supply a Glasgow map, a print out of my local guidebook and any advice about the city requested. I always stay in the flat on your first night and occasionally spend a night away if I am visiting friends, etc. but would discuss this with you before making plans.

Check-in is 14:00 hours onwards and check-out by 11:00. If you would like to arrive before this time, please get in touch and I will see if it is possible. In any case, you can drop luggage off and collect keys earlier if it suits you.

After check out, I am happy for you to leave your luggage for collection later in the day if that helps.

Other things to note

JUST TO LET YOU KNOW, there are a couple of negatives which also have plus points. As I live near a main road with bars and restaurants, it can be noisy with traffic and revellers at night. More so from Friday to Monday and when students celebrate in mid September and mid May. Also, the flat is located on the second floor with two flights of stairs and no lift, but the extra light does make the interior brighter. The en-suite shower room is lovely but very small. There is a step to get into the shower and the opening between the doors is not very wide. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

1) No smoking.

2) Do not flush any sanitary or foreign items down the toilet as the en-suite has very sensitive plumbing. Toilet paper is fine!

3) No parties and you must ask me before inviting anyone else into the flat.

4) As I have a high security lock on the front door, if the key is lost I would need to replace the whole lock at a cost of £80 and take this from the deposit.

Potential for noise - As I live near a main road it can be noisy with traffic and revellers at night. More so from Fri-Mon and students celebrating mid September & mid May.
Some spaces are shared - The kitchen is shared with my guests in the Hamilton room and myself.

Lucy was a great host and her apartment was absolutely gorgeous. The photos are nice but it's even more impressive in person. The main hallway is covered with incredible artwork and the bedroom is super large and airy wiht its high ceilings an tall windows and it is beautifully decorated. The bed was comfy with nice linens and she even had robes for us. The room is stocked with an array of Scotland themed books and there was even a selection of Scotland themed DVDs, though we were too pooped to watch any after running around all day. Lucy met us on arrival and gave us some wonderful tips on places to visit and restaurants to go to during our short stay. The breakfast set up was very convenient as everything was in our room so we could take what we wanted when we wanted. It was nice having the privacy of our own room and bath while having Lucy down the hall if we had any questions. And the neighborhood was super convenient. Just a 10 minute walk to the Botanic Gardens, Hunterian Gallery, Glasgow University, strolling along the Kelvin River, and many restaurants and coffee shops. And the subway is just a block away for farther distances. We highly recommend Lucy's apartment!

Staying at Lucy's was an absolute joy. The room is gorgeous (and HUGE!), and Lucy is an attentive and generous host. The neighborhood, which had tons of great restaurants, coffee shops, and bars, was a lot of fun to explore, and Lucy generously gave us lots of recommendations for favorite spots and even marked up a map for us. Couldn't recommend more highly!

I have happily shared my home with a variety of people over the years and hosting with Airbnb feels like a natural extension of this. After studying textile design at Glasgow School of Art I have had a number of creative jobs (Art Department in Film & TV, Design Assistant, Floris…
