In the old part of Glasgow, next door to the Glasgow Cathedral, this 19th century, Scottish Baronial-style building has been beautifully converted into a unique 8-bedroom hotel. Perfectly complimenting the hotel’s origins, all rooms reflect the shape and quirkiness of the layout of the Victorian architecture. Most have views of either Glasgow Cathedral or the Necropolis. All rooms feature a handmade bed, flat-screen TV, a hairdryer, en-suite shower room with a monsoon shower and complimentary toiletries. A stocked tea tray with Tunnocks biscuits and free WiFi are also provided in the room. Cathedral house also offers a beautiful event space, seating up to 60 guests. Perfect for any truly special occasion. The Cathedral House is a privately-run hotel. Guests will not find any corporate logos here, just genuine hospitality, a warm welcome and a friendly environment. Free Wi-Fi access now available in the bar-bistro area
