The Kevin Hotel was a pleasure to stay at. The staff and management were more than accommodating with our circumstances and really helped our visit be a memorable one. The features of the hotel provide it with extra character. The price of the rooms, the handy location and the quality of service given were all excellent.

You have to share bathrooms when living on this hotel. No information about that in the booking details. It just says its a standardroom. Nice breakfast, with full english breakfast. Very noisy from the traffic and cold rooms. Nice hostess.

Nice hotel walking distance to botanic gardens and west end sights. Friendly. Good breakfast with nice selection. Quiet, clean room. Parking is very small lot but worth extra money as street parking hard to find.

I was a regular customer of the Kelvin Hotel until I booked a room for the nights of 1st. and 2nd. March 2014. I telephoned the day before to give my arrival time, but hotel manager Sandra could find no record of my booking and told me that I could not be accommodated. After some considerable trouble I found a...

We spent two nights in a twin room at the Kelvin hotel. I think we got allocated a bigger room than we reserved (two double beds instead of two single) which was excellent. The location (Glasgow's West-End) is spot on and the double Georgian house is a really nice surrounding. It does have a budget hotel characteristic but in a...

This hotel was such a find! Most of the hostels in Glasgow had not such great reviews so I was looking for budget accommodation that was nicer than back packers. I had a single room with a sink and had access to a lovely bathroom. The hotel is in the great west end area with loads of restaurants and bars...

Stayed here for 2 nights paying £76 a night for a double room with an ensuite. Price wise this is equivalent to a Premier Inn but the comparison was not favourable to the Kelvin. Our room was very dreary and basic with a low ceiling and a stagnant aroma. The initial impression on entering the room was not a hotel...

This hotel is very basic but in a good location for the subway and various bars / amenities in the area. The double room was simple but clean and also included tea and coffee making facilities. There was an issue with the hot water in the morning, but after complaining and then going back to the room it appeared to...
