“Mi familia tuvo una estadía fantástica en este hermoso apartamento decorado con buen gusto, ubicado en un vecindario tranquilo cerca del West End de Glasgow. El registro y la salida fueron fáciles, y la comunicación fue fácil. Realmente apreciamos los toques bien pensados (café, cereal, mermelada en la nevera) que lo hicieron sentir como en casa. Recomiendo encarecidamente este piso a cualquier visitante de Glasgow.”

In 1989 the development was converted from the warehouse building of Speirs Wharf, forming 150 loft-style residential apartments, a private leisure centre, and 19 commercial units. During the 19th Century, Speirs Wharf was at the hub of Glasgow's industrial revolution, with work commencing on the first phase of its development in 1811. The single building at the entrance to the development was built in 1812 as the offices for Forth & Clyde Navigation Co. In 1851, the City of Glasgow Grain Mills & Stores owned by John Currie & Co followed. Subsequent additions followed between 1869 and 1870. Originally the mills had 20 pairs of mill stones and a 100 horse power condensing engine.

“El anfitrión fue encantador, muy acogedor y proporcionó mucha información! El aire bnb en sí era muy acogedor y acogedor, la calefacción era muy cálida. Las instalaciones fueron absolutamente increíbles. Hay un gimnasio, piscina con sauna, etc. y la piscina también está climatizada. Aunque otros tienen acceso, era muy tranquilo y teníamos la piscina para nosotros la mayoría del tiempo. La ubicación en sí es perfecta. Entramos en el centro que tardó unos 15 minutos. El alojamiento está justo en el canal con hermosas vistas en una zona tranquila. El exterior se ve 5 estrellas con bonitas luces de hadas en los árboles, etc. Hay un café cerca que es muy agradable (un poco caro pero tienes un 10% de descuento en el aire bnb). 100% recomiendo este lugar :)”

“Nos hemos alojado en un montón de Airbnbs y The Writer's Retreat es fácilmente uno de nuestros favoritos. El apartamento fue construido como una gran residencia para un barón del whisky y se convirtió en apartamentos. El diseño es tan inteligente y hace un excelente uso del espacio. Si te gustan los detalles arquitectónicos, te cautivarán los techos de 15 pies, las molduras de yeso y el increíble ventanal. Pip y Jane también han hecho un trabajo maravilloso con la decoración. Mi esposa y yo nos hubiera gustado quedarnos más tiempo. Si este fuera un apartamento en nuestra ciudad natal, lo alquilaríamos en un abrir y cerrar de ojos.”
