Great apartment in a great location for town centre and merchant city.

The property is in a good and convenient location, it was sufficient for what we needed it for. The balcony is the key feature of this place. We had beautiful weather and sitting on the balcony watching the sunset in the evenings was amazing. The place is sufficient and was fully equipped with a full kitchen of tea and coffee, cleaning products, toilet roll etc. We was welcomed with a box of chocolates too, a lovely touch. The only slight negative is the property is slightly outdated, the bathrooms could do with a revamp being that it's a penthouse apartment. We were expecting it to be a little bit more modern. They were totally sufficient though and did do the job fine. The garage to park your car is VERY narrow and tight!

It does what it says on the tin. An excellent family / group accommodation in the centre of town. Very nice, clean, well appointed flat. Secure parking for two cars which is easy to find. We would stay here again if traveling with a group of friends. You'll have to toss a coin to get the King size bed!

We had a family of six people staying and it was great, all you would need for a short trip to Glasgow and more. The location is very convenient and the flat itself was very quiet considering it's in the city. My son didn't want to leave our little home from home when it was time to go. The garage was fine for our Honda CRV and would think that you could get a second car in as well as long as it wasn't too long or tall. If it was a big SUV then I don't think it wouldn't fit. We would love to return again in the future.

Fabulous Penthouse in Perfect Location

The penthouse is as gorgeous as the pictures depict - and is actually bigger then expected. It is very clean, well maintained and well stocked with all the basics that you needed to settle right in. The location is perfect - just a minutes walk from shopping center, pubs, sights. We were 6 adults staying in the apt for 4 nights from the US and Ireland for a family wedding, and the Orchid was a great meeting spot for other family members staying in local hotels, before heading out for sightseeing or dinner. I'd have given this 5 stars except for a few things: The gentlemen who met us upon arrival was very pleasant, but the checkin and rundown of how all worked was very fast/rushed. Would be helpful if they had more of how things worked documented for reference. And the elevator was very problematic. The door got stuck open several times, making it unusable. This apt is on the top/5th floor - a long way to walk up! Fortunately we met the next door neighbor in the hallway who explained this happens fairly often, and you just need to give the door a shove/jolt and it will close/operate again. They should get this fixed! And if they aren't going to do that - they should be explaining the issue and the work-around during the walkthru. Would have saved us some trips, and some calls to the the rental folks and elevator service people on the weekend.

It was a beautiful flat and we would stay there again.
It was a lovely large flat. Very spacious and comfortable for the 7 of us. The kitchen was great and had all the small appliances needed, kettle, coffee maker, toaster etc. It was also equipped with all the utensils, plates, wine glasses, mugs etc. we needed to cook and eat with. Nothing was amiss. Everything we needed was there, hair dryer, iron and board, extra comforters etc. We would book this place again. Thank You!!!!

A lovely, well equipped apartment in a very good location.
Good communication with the property staff, who met us at the property and showed us around. The apartment was ready for our arrival and our host had the heating on which was much appreciated as we arrived on a cold wet day.

Fantastic Penthouse in Superb Location!
This is a superb penthouse in an amazing location overlooking the Clyde! It is very spacious, comfortable and equipped so well, it felt like a relaxing family home with everything we needed. The central location was perfect for us to enjoy the city with ease and we are looking forward very much to the next visit. The booking process was easy and everything was done to ensure our stay was the perfect break we were hoping for. Thank you so much to the Rental Retreats team for everything you did to make our stay so special.

Well equipped apartment central for attractions, shops and food
Lovely central position nice space in apartment so not on top of each other. 7 long time friends all like to do different things so ideal Minor problem with extra bed but nothing that would have spoilt the stay and I believe fixed immediately reported.
penny   Dec 2017
The place has a stunning view. An amazing apartment. The only thing is if you have like a big suv it might not fit in the garage the property has. Sans that everything else is just perfect. Gerard was kind enough to check us in and help us out.

Lovely apartment , good location .
5 th floor apartment in residential block overlooking the Clyde . Plenty space , secure and quiet with good parking , this is not easy to get in Glasgow. Good kitchen with plenty utensils . Flat getting bit dated but cared for well. Glass dining table and lots of glass and chrome . Few problems with downstairs toilet and showers nice and hot but more a drizzle than shower. Didn't spoil our enjoyment of the flat though. Didn't use balcony due to weather but must be nice in good weather, getting key was good and directions fine .

Generously outfitted condo in a great central location
This place has not one, but two balconies overlooking the Clyde -- one off the living room, and one up top, off the master bedroom. This is a top-floor unit (on the sixth floor, in American parlance) with wonderful views to both south and north. The place is a ten-minute walk from Buchanan St. (the pedestrian shopping district), and just basically an elevator ride from two historic pubs: the Clutha, with the tree growing up the middle, and the Scotia, where Billy Connolly started out. The kitchen has a wonderful selection of teas for use by visitors (we hope, since we drank a lot of it), and the fireplace/heater with glowing stones added a nice coziness to a drizzly evening or two. A very comfortable and hospitable set-up. The only inconvenience to our party of four adults was that just two keys were available. Easy remedied, I imagine.

This beautiful apartment is incredibly well located for a visit to Glasgow. It’s well appointed and the views are stunning. Would highly recommend for a Glasgow base.
Dan   Oct 2017
Location location location! The flat is very centrally located along the River Clyde. It was walking distance to downtown and shopping area and many restaurants. The flat is generally clean and as described. We had 7 in our party and it was a very good place to come back to each evening to relax and had breakfast together in the morning. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, tea, coffee, condiments and cookware. The view from the balcony is amazing and a run/walk along the river is highly recommended! Gerry (the property manager) is very friendly and responsive. He waited up for us until past midnight because our flight was delayed.

Dayna Gina   Aug 2017
Location tremendous
For the most part loved everything about flat. Need a little more definition about garages and also definition of sleeping 8. Found the futon in lounge not big enough even for two children. Flat nèeds a little tender care as it is a little tired looking a few repairs to things like bar stools would enhance this flat. Also housekeeping nèeds to do a better job. Management company was very accessible and helpful. All this being said, I would recommend this property to others.
Janet M.   Aug 2017
I loved staying here. Very spacious and clean. Excellent location. Everything you needed was provided. The property manager, Gerry, was very helpful.

Wonderful space and so perfectly located with beautiful views. Beds and bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, and if the weather permits, the deck is absolutely gorgeous. We were lucky to be blue to use that 2 out of our 3 day stay. Would absolutely stay again.

Perfect Penthouse with Scenic View
Booked for my daughters 16th Birthday Party with a mixed age group ranging from 77 to 16, suited all. Plenty of space on 3 levels and well equipped with everything you need for a stay away from home. Cupboards well stocked with essentials and easy to use guides supplied. Pleasant and friendly owners with no issues getting keys or deposit returned.

Piso excelente
La ubicación del piso y que las fotos del piso se asemejan totalmente a la realidad. El sofá cama que hay en el comedor tendria que ser un poco más cómodo y más grande porque 2 personas no caberian

Great apartment, great location
Recently stayed here with 6 friends. The apartment was very comfortable and spacious and had everything you'd need for a weekend away. The kitchen is really well equipped and there was plenty of bedding for the very comfortable beds. The location is good for public transport and shopping. The owners were very helpful and responded quickly to any queries I had; the management company were very helpful too. The only quibble I had was that it would be useful to have some shelving in the en suite for toiletries etc. I would certainly recommend this apartment for families or groups of friends and would stay in it again.

Prime Location, Spacious, Well-Appointed
The Apartment was very clean and comfortable, with all the amenities for us (two couples and a single person) to feel very much at home. It is quite spacious, with ample and comfortable seating space on the main floor and three ample bedrooms, one of them quite large, on the upper floor. The kitchen is very well-appointed, as well. Aside from being very comfortable, we found the views over the Clyde, particularly at sunset, absolutely stunning. In addition, the location is superb -- a couple of blocks from both pedestrianised Buchanan Street and from George Square, with lots of restaurants and shopping, and yet quiet enough for us to rest without being disturbed. We were able to park our car in the garage and not need to use it until we left at the end of our stay. The underground station at St. Enoch's was also very handy for us to go farther afield when the weather wasn't good for walking. Antony, the owner, was very responsive and solicitous, both before and after our stay, and his property manager in Glasgow likewise. We look forward to our next stay here.
William G.   Feb 2017
Excellent location!
We stayed here with our four teenagers and it worked really well for us, it was warm and comfortable. The location is beautiful but it is also so handy, within easy walking distance of the city centre shops and restaurants. Therefore people could return to the apartment when it suited and everyone had plenty independence. We had a lovely, long weekend of shopping and delicious eating. There is a very nice Italian just around the corner.

Great location, outstanding property!
Our stay at the Orchid - Penthouse Duplex was fantastic. Very comfortable beds, outstanding living spaces, great kitchen, and very clean. We so enjoyed our stay in Glasgow and having such a beautiful vacation lodging really made our trip a 5 star experience. The customer service was very responsive and friendly. The owners were so helpful. Can't loose with this beautiful and very reasonable priced penthouse! Thank you!
Sheryl   Oct 2016
The flat is so nice and has awesome views. We were lucky and had really good weather so we sat out on the deck and enjoyed the city. Perfect location as it was a 5 minute walk to Buchanan Street!
Jessica   Aug 2016
Pleasant apartment in good location with a great view of the Clyde.
Rented this apartment with six other women. The common areas are spacious with a good kitchen area, large living room, and nice balcony areas with an expansive views of the river. Bedrooms were adequate and comfortable. The bathrooms were a bit small and few by American standards but we coordinated well enough. The owner was most pleasant and informative, giving us directions for groceries and restaurants. The location is away from the busy part of the city but still convenient to the subway and shopping and tourist areas. Good place!
Annette F.   Jul 2016
This was a great apartment with lovely views. Our welcome was warm, the apartment was clean and a great bolt hole for the four of us who were working in Glasgow for the week

Great location overall, a few little finishing touches let it down, garage is very narrow and takes time to get car in. Don't rush. Other than that. Great stay all round .
Shaun K.   Jun 2016
Thank you Antony for everything! The apartment is huge and there is all you can think of like in your own house. The bedrooms are all spacious and really bright. Kitchen very well equipped....even too much! Antony left for us like 10 packs of pasta, tomato sauce, olive oil rice coffee and tons of other things... Also for the cleaning there is every product you can think of Location is perfect and public transportation in Glasgow works very well. Nice spot Aldo for sports, there is a wonderful park at 5 min walk Close there is a Tesco market and all the shopping streets We had a problem with one shower and Antony was kind to send us the plumber to immediately fix it We were 3 families with little kids, the space is perfect Thank again and hope to come back another time
Fosco   Apr 2016
Great location by The Clyde, very well equipped and nicely laid out.
We would have liked to have stayed longer and if we are ever in Glasgow again this is where we will stay. The balcony is lovely when the sun shines and the view over the Clyde is great. Well equipped and generously stocked with all the basic essentials including rice, pasta, olive oil, pasta sauce, pepper, salt, herbs etc so you can knock up a meal after a long journey without having to immediately go shopping. Beds comfy and rooms well laid out. Really enjoyed our brief stay. We were early so many thanks for letting us in before the allotted time.
John G   Apr 2016
The apartment is perfectly located to visit the many attractions of Glasgow. The views from the two balconies are astonishing (River Clyde)! All the equipment is well chosen and luxurious. However, the kitchen (oven, stove, equipment) was quite dirty, which was really a pity as we would have liked to cook.
Zeno   Apr 2016
This apartment has everything - great location
This apartment has everything - great location, spotlessly clean and comfortable and the bonus of a secure parking space Charming apartment, very light, very clean and tidy, very quiet, some whacko artwork on the walls which adds to the charm. Very central. Lots of glasses, pots and pans everything you could possibly need. Charming lady met us on arrival, showed us round. Really nice touch to have milk in the fridge and basics in the cupboards. Will be booking the apartment again next year.

Amazing flat for family holiday
Orchid is an amazing place to stay with your family. We spent five days in Glasgow and this home was the best choice. It's in a great location no longer than five minutes from the city heart. The flat is spacious and very well furnished. I highly recomend this home for a family travel. Private car park.
Pedro G   Feb 2016
Fantastic stay in the heart of Glasgow
We stayed in this perfect property with 4 friends to spend a long weekend in Glasgow. The location is great with a scenic riverview from the bacony, many shopping possibiliteis and major tourist attractions just around the corner within a few minutes walking distance. The rooms are really big and comfortable, the whole flat is furnished with style. Everything was very clean when we arrived and we were even granted an early check-in which was very comfy after an early morning flight on a rainy day. We had a warm welcome by the staff and the communication with the manager before and after our stay was always very nice, fast and helpful. We really enjoyed our time in Glasgow and this appartment was one of the reasons for that as it immediately made us feel at home. Absolute recommendation!
Philipp S   Nov 2015
Nice apartment, great location
Apartment has a great spot sitting on the river but is still an easy walk to the main part of town. Shopping at the M&S food hall is a delight, then back to the apartment to enjoy food with river views while soaking up the late afternoon sun. We travelled with several small children and the apartment facilities were excellent.

Fabulously located and appointed apartment
The location of this fabulous 3 bed penthouse apartment could not be better. Frontline to the river Clyde, very close to the Clutha and Scotia bars. Easy walking distance to the central shopping areas and restaurants, and to Merchant City. Despite a few steps the apartment was accessible to a partial wheelchair user with some assistance. The apartment itself was the best equipped we have ever stayed at and was luxurious. Furnishingings were excellent, in particular the beds were just the most comfortable you would wish for. Great view from both balconies. The incorporated individual garaging was also really useful for parking in a major city. Great place to stay.
