Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Glasgow - Greyfriars Court

Stylish self catering 1 bedroom apartment in Merchant City, Glasgow

Available from August 2015 onwards for holiday rentals. Our lovely apartment is in the Merchant City, one of the most popular and vibrant areas of Glasgow, worth walking the surrounding streets just to see the impressive architecture. There is an abundance of great restaurants and bars nearby. The City Halls, home to the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra are just across the road. The apartment, which is on the third floor, has just been completely refurbished. There is a shower room with new bathroom suite and 1700mm walk in shower. The bedroom windows overlook the courtyard. It's a bright, airy property with a large lounge/dining area. The complex has a security entrance and designated parking space.

About Gillian

We are an early retired couple who have owned this city centre property now for six years. This is the first year that the apartment has been available for rental. Until now, it has been very much kept 'in the family', our daughter and her husband enjoyed living there for many years.

Why Gillian chose Scotland

Greyfriars Court is a bright and airy apartment located within Glasgow's Merchant City, ideal for the business or leisure traveller. Completely refurbished in 2014, the property offers a uniquely fresh environment for our guests. The bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a king size bed. The large open plan lounge and dining area have two new sofas, flat screen TV with Freeview and Blu Ray player. The kitchen has modern appliances including microwave, hob and oven. There is also a washer/dryer available.

A welcome pack including bottled sparkling water, biscuits, tea, coffee and milk is waiting for you on arrival.

What makes this apartment unique

Fantastic location for visiting Glasgow. There are bars and restaurants on the doorstep and Glasgow's renowned shopping in Buchanan Street is a 10 minute walk away! Although in the city centre, it is surprisingly quiet as the two bedroom windows overlook a courtyard and the lounge overlooks a quiet side street. Rail, bus and motorway links are close by. The Edinburgh summer festival and fringe is only 50 minutes away by train.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We couldn't have asked for a nicer flat in a perfect location. Within walking distance of Concert Hall, shopping, train, tours, and restaurants. Very clean and well organized. Stocked well with kitchen and bath supplies. Everything ran well. No issues whatsoever. Felt like home within hours. Getting set up with Gillian was a breeze. Very helpful. Would stay there again next time we visit for sure.

Glasgow Merchant City Courtyard Apartment - Free Wifi and Car Parking
average rating of 5.0 based on 25 reviews

By far the best accomodation during our 3 week holiday in Scotland.

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this apartment. It was very clean, quiet and beautifully furnished. The location was perfect to access the city center.

All amenities were very thoughtful for example fresh milk, coffee, tea and cookies plus fresh flowers were available on our arrival. The following details were also available such as instructions for appliances kept together in a portfolio, convertors for electrical plugs, and a portable drying rack for clothes plus clips for keeping food fresh in bags.

Gillian was very kind and accommodating. Our stay in Glasgow in this apartment was memorable in the most positive manner. Thank you.

Wonderful apartment in an interesting city

  • 5 of 5

Every apartment for rent should bench marked against the Glasgow Merchant City Courtyard Apartment. If every apartment was presented to visitors as superbly as this apartment is then there would never be a need for apartments to be reviewed.

The apartment is spotlessly clean and is equipped with new modern appliances. The owners are wonderful hosts providing plenty of information about Glasgow. They provided tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and many other items throughout the apartment and even a spare toothbrush in the bathroom!

Unfortunately, we did not spend enough time in Glasgow or the apartment. But we intend to return to both in the near future.

Excellent comfortable apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is furnished to a high standard, and very well equipped with lots of thoughtful touches. It is quiet and comfortable and it would be hard to find fault. The location is excellent, central but with easy access by car and public transport, and with good cafes and restaurants very close by. Gillian is a very good communicator and was very helpful with a problem we had. We hope to return to Glasgow before too long as there is much more that we want to do there, and the apartment will definitely be our first choice.

Really lovely property set in a central location handy for transport links, shops and art galleries.

A Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is first class- well equipped with all the latest technology and lots of DVD’s and books to read. It’s a real home from home and spotless!

On arrival I was met by Gillian who had put out fresh flowers and stocked the kitchen area with all the essentials that you would usually have to go out and buy. I would highly recommend staying here and looking forward to my next stay.

Owner's Response: Yes, we do leave the flat stocked with the basics - cleaning materials, laundry products, toiletries etc. We reckon the last thing our guests want to do when they arrive is go out and shop for this stuff. Thanks for recommending us!

Happy Days!

  • 5 of 5

From our initial welcome, to when we left the property, we were impressed. The flat was impeccably clean, and there were such a lot of thoughtful extra touches, like Arran toiletries and M&S biscuits to make us feel at home. We want to emphasise the beautiful bedding and the very comfortable bed, often neglected in many holiday lets.

Merchant City is an area of Glasgow that was new to us, so we were very interested to discover the history of the immediate area and its lively atmosphere. You are never stuck for somewhere to eat out, but if you want to make your own meals there are a range of supermarkets very close at hand in all directions; Aldi, M&S, Sainsburys and Tesco. We additionally recommend Drygate Brewing Company, a small independent brewery, as a place to eat, or indeed drink. It has tours on Sundays which we missed and wish we'd known about.

Downstairs from the flat is Gandolfi restaurant. We had a takeaway of vegetarian haggis and chips. Loved it. And I have to comment that the chap serving cleaned his hands with gel cleanser after taking money and serving everyone. Very high standards of hygiene.

As well as the main places of interest why not visit the police museum on Bell Street, two minutes walk from the flat. It is run by a retired policeman and tells of the history of the police in Glasgow. Only a small place, but well worth a look at.

Although our holiday was merely a few days, centered around a special event at the Hydro, we would have no hesitation in recommending Merchant City Courtyard Apartment to future visitors. We certainly would stay again.
