The Kirklee Hotel is situated in Glasgow’s leafy West End, an ideal location for city breaks. Set in award winning gardens, the hotel forms part of Kensington Gate, a serpentine of red sandstone town houses, opposite a private park. The hotel is recommended by many independent British, European and American travel guides such as Which?, Fodor’s, Frommer and Michelin. The terrace was designed by David Barclay in 1902 and is built in the grand style of town houses of the period.
The hotel has the ambiance and character of an Edwardian home. All the public rooms retain the original style with period features, antique furniture and original paintings and etchings by Scottish and International artists.
The hotel has nine guest rooms all with ensuite bathrooms. All rooms are uniquely furnished with high quality fabrics and original art on the walls. Other facilities in the rooms include television, radio, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities and telephone. Breakfast is served in the privacy of the guest’s rooms, which have tables by the windows.
There is a stylish guest lounge decorated with Edwardian opulence overlooking the private gardens through tall bay windows. The room is decorated in gold and blue offsetting the dark woods of the period furtniturre, carved fire mantle and parquet flooring.
The hotel has a very quiet situation but is only a few minutes walk from the many bars, restaurants and cafes in the centre of the West End, around Byres Road. Nearby are the Botanic Gardens, Glasgow University and Kelvingrove Art Gallery, while the city centre is less than 2 miles away. The hotel is just off the Great Western Road and so is ideal for easy access to Loch Lomond and the West Highlands.
