About Michele George
Hello! My name is Michele George and I am the Owner and Manager of Boswell and Sherbrooke Apartments, collectively called "Glasgow Self Catering Apartments". My small Family busness is now 12 years old! I offer 3 and 4-Star "Home from Home" Self Catering Accommodation (Graded by Visit Scotland - The National Tourist Board for Scotland) with an attentive, knowledgeable but unobtrusive approach. I am a member of the ASSC - The Association of Scotland's Self Caterers so you can be assured of a professional and efficient service. The most important thing to me is that my guests are happy. I know that, from experience, if you stay once, you will return again if you come back to Glasgow, as my many repeat guests do, time after time. I graduated with Honours as a Teacher of Physical Education in 1982 and then taught in London. I worked as a Holiday Representative for Thomson Holidays for six years and I bring that valuable experience very much into how I organise what I do now in terms of hospitality, organisation and attention to detail. I then retrained as a Teacher of Primary Education before meeting my husband and starting a family. I started "Glasgow Self Catering Apartments" in 2007. I look forward to welcoming you to the wonderful City of Glasgow.
Michele George purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Michele George chose Glasgow
I have been operating since 2007 when I started off with just one apartment. I now have four 4-Star Apartments in two different but equally lovely areas on Glasgow's South Side - Langside and Pollokshields. I also have a detached 3-Bedroom Country Cottage in Newton Mearns which, although on the outskirts of Glasgow, is only 15 minutes to the City Centre. Grade I was born and brought up in Shawlands on the South Side so I am very familiar with the area and its benefits. I truly want all my guests to experience the best of what Glasgow has to offer and so my locations were carefully chosen for their peaceful, safe and prestigious aspects. City Centres can be noisy, Car Parking can be non-existent or very expensive. My locations take away all this stress and yet allow quick and easy access to the hustle, bustle and excitement of the City Centre. Minutes from M77/M8/M74 makes this a great central base to explore Glasgow and beyond.
What makes this Apartment unique
You will love the feeling of "Coming Home" when you stay at Boswell or Sherbrooke. Each apartment is unique and yet each retains the air of welcome and relaxation with everything in place to enable guests to enjoy a stress-free stay. The experience is based on the standard of hospitality and you can be sure of a warm and friendly welcome and a stay which is tailored to your own specific needs. Not only this, but you will be in a good central location which allows such easy access to so many of Scotlands's gems, such as 40 minutes to Edinburgh, Stirling Castle, Wallace Monument, The Trossachs, Loch Lomond, West Coast, etc So please come and be prepared to fall in love with Scotland. I look forward to meeting you! A "Wee Dram" of Scotch Whisky awaits!

Ideally located home from home
Owner extremely helpful and introduced us to her particularly well-equipped property; she really has thought of everything.
Well situated close to Glasgow City Centre yet a genuine haven; definitely a home from home.
Thank you for taking the time to Review Boswell 4 Star Self Catering Apartment. Your positive comments are very much appreciated.
Truly a home from home
My sister's family recently had to spend a couple of months back home in Glasgow due to family commitments: no room at the inn in our place so we were delighted to find them the most organised and personable landlady imaginable.
Over the course of eight weeks they stayed in 3 of the 4 properties owned and personally managed by Michele ( she is heavily booked so they had to move around as she honoured her prior bookings).
Each apartment offered comfort, cleanliness, warmth and every conceivable item you could wish for meticulously stored and labelled.
Furnishings are contemporary and stylish, in keeping with the standards you would find in an upmarket hotel, with attention to the little details such as soft lighting, cushions and artwork.
There were many evenings when I called round to visit and attempted to persuade them to go back to my house full of teenagers whilst I luxuriated in the warmth of the apartment with total control over the huge TV and sky box!
As a local living just 10 minutes from the apartment, I can testify to the first class transport links connecting you to the city centre, with further superb links from there to other cities and regions of Scotland.
The Boswell apartments have a good selection of local restaurants, cafes and bars within walking distance. Local shopping is varied, with some good independent shops - a trip into the city centre is easy and additionally there is a large out of town mall nearby at Silverburn.
Tourist attractions are too many to mention: all are easily accessed from either location of these apartments - which have adequate parking facilities although a car is not a neccessity given the good transport links already mentioned.
We can not recommend these apartments, or their owner/ manager, highly enough.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write such an amazing review. I really do appreciate it. It was a pleasure to be able to be of service to your family and I am so pleased that they were happy with the standard of the GSCA accommodation. Having the privilege of having such lovely guests staying is what makes everything worthwhile. Thank you all once again.
30-40 minute drive down the M77 will take you to some lovely beaches on the West Coast of Scotland. One of my favourites is the beach at Irvine - if it was not for the unpredictability of the Scottish Weather you would believe you were anywhere else in the world! Ayrshire is "Robert Burns" country so you may like to visit the Burns Heritage Centre, sing "Auld Lang Syne" and recite a few verses of "Tam O'Shanter!"
