About the property

Apartment, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 4 people

A large and luxurious two bedroom apartment in the Merchant City district of Glasgow. The apartment is located next to the Trongate at the end of Argyle Street. The district offers a wide variety of both Scottish and international bars, restaurants and coffee houses. It is also close to some of Glasgow best venues including the Tron Theatre, The Barrowlands, and the Old Fruitmarket.

This apartment offers great excellent natural light due to its lofty seventh floor position. The building has security entry and an elevator to reach the upper floors. Inside, you will find a large hallway leading to two double bedrooms (one en-suite). The master bedroom has a king-sized bed fitted wardrobes, plenty of drawer space and a modern shower room. The second bedroom has twin beds, fitted wardrobes and plenty of storage within fitted wardrobes and ample drawer space. The main bathroom includes a bath with a shower over. Having two showers operating from the gas boiler means this is excellent for groups who need to shower at the same time in the morning before heading out for the day's activities.

The large open plan living area includes two elegant sofas, a flat screen TV, music docking station, and a dining table with four chairs. The kitchen is inclusive of everything you might expect in your own home - fridge/freezer, dishwasher, oven, hob, microwave, toaster, kettle and cooking utensils. Pots, pans and cutlery are also provided.

The Merchant City area of Glasgow is one of the most vibrant districts and full of diverse and interesting architecture, cafes and restaurants. It is a preferred location for both professional and artistic residents with a number of small galleries and theatres in the area. It is also home to a number of high end boutique style shops and more famous international labels at the Italian Centre.

The annual Merchant City Festival and Celtic Connections attract a growing number of visitors each year who enjoy concerts, Scottish Ceilidh dances, comedy events and exhibitions at venues, including the Tron Theatre, the Old Fruitmarket, the Trades Hall, and St. Andrews in the Square, Merchant Square, and the City Halls.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Barony Bell Guestbook

Stayed here for two nights before/after our daughter's wedding. The bride's party was in the Barony Gate apartment - different street (just round the corner) but linked by same underground garage. The apartments were lovely - well appointed, spotless and spacious. Moira couldn't have been more helpful. The location wasn't that important to us but for a holiday visit to Glasgow it would be ideal.

I can't recommend it enough.

We regularly stay in one bedroom apartments as an alternative to hotels and visit Glasgow once a year. This is the best one yet. Modern and well thought out, this apartment just works. Exceptionally clean, well equipped and comfortable. Good location on the edge of the Merchant City. We found it quiet and safe but close enough to the shops and some excellent nightlife/restaurants in the Merchant City. We would happily return. Booking service friendly and efficient. Just a smooth, hassle free service and stay. Perfect for us.

Barony Gate Guestbook

Immaculate apartment in a great location. High Street and Argyle Street rail stations are a few hundred yards in either direction. Many excellent restaurants are nearby. City centre is within walking distance. The apartment itself is lovely, and the owner Moira couldn't be more helpful. Highly recommended.

A good two bedroom flat with a large living room and kitchen.

On the edge of Merchant City and easy walking to the centre of the city. Really efficient and friendly service from Moira. Overall excellent.

— Christoph, 24 May 2014

The flat is perfect in every sense.

Owner very accommodating. Very meticulous in every detail of the apartment to make you feel home.

It is replete with everything and I mean everything. From flashlight, firstaid kit in case of

emergency to umbrella.

Very clean, couldn't find any fault.

Perfect flat!!!!

I stayed at Barony Gate for two nights with my wife and 3 year old twins. The apartment was immaculately clean and tastefully furnished. It's located on the 7th floor however there is a lift to spare your legs the hard work. The lift and communal areas were very clean. The children settled in immediately which was helpful after a long journey up from Liverpool. We were able to hunt and gather basic provisions from the Tesco Express which is very close by. There is also a Morrisons nearby for a full shop. Moira met us when we arrived at Barony Gate, providing us with lots of useful local information. She allowed us to check-out later on our departure day which was a really nice gesture, sparing us from waiting around for too long at Glasgow Central train station with the two little people. We would definitely stay here again if we visit Glasgow in the future.

Excellent city centre apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment provided everything we wanted - safe & secure parking along with very clean and well equipped accommodation which was well laid out for four adults and young infant. High chair and cot provided as requested. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting to be within walking distance of city centre shops, pubs & restaurants in one direction and park / play area in the other.

The information folder provided was comprehensive and the booking process for this apartment was very efficiently carried out. The arrangements for arrival went completely to plan and we are very grateful to Devin for his ensuring that we had all the information required to enjoy our stay.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week long trip through Scotland and Ireland with a stay at the Barony Gate apartment in Glasgow. The apartment was fantastic; clean, well-maintained, and in a great location for visiting Glasgow and the Highlands. Kitchen had everything we needed and the washer in the hall closet was a plus. Moira was the best host, taking time to show us the ropes and quickly addressing an issue that developed with parking. If we have the opportunity to return to Glasgow we will definitely stay at this apartment again. A solid recommendation of anyone looking for a fantastic apartment at a great price.

Lovely apartment in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Booked apartment for a girls theatre break weekend... Perfect!

Lovely spacious flat in central location. Lots of Shops, restraunts and bars nearby. Secure parking underneath the building made getting to and from the apartment so convenient however there are excellent transport links on doorstep.

Flat is modern, spacious and immaculately presented with everything you would need for a short stay. There were only 3 of us, but would comfortably sleep 5.

Moira was the perfect host, everything from the initial booking to departure was well smooth and well organised -thank you!

We will definitely return... In fact we are already planning next stay!

We loved our stay here!

The location in central Glasgow is outstanding (although wonderfully quiet in the apartment), and the facilities provided everything we needed.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and well-maintained.

Booking and pre-arrival service were excellent, and as the owner was on holiday when we stayed she arranged for a really nice manager of another holiday property to provide meet/greet and general assistance for us.

I would unreservedly recommend this property to friends and relatives, and Barony Gate is top of our list for accommodation when we next visit Glasgow.
