“Fabulous location and a friendly Scottish welcome.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

This hotel is ideally placed for a city break. Adjacent to the train station and minutes walk from Buchanan street. The hotel has been refurbished to a high standard and the public spaces and bars feel quite opulent. Our room was clean, quiet and the perfect temperature. The staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. We were travelling with a 3-month baby and they immediately moved us to a room with a bath which was very helpful. Breakfast was definitely up there with the best - a very friendly chap welcomed us both mornings and the food was excellent.I definitely recommend that you give this place a try.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

We stayed here a few years ago for one night as we were attending a function in the hotel. This time, we were attending an event in the city and decided to spoil ourselves again, even though we only live 15 miles away. Once again, we were not disappointed. The rooms are fresh, clean, comfortable and colourful, with our room this time on the 3rd floor looking right down Waterloo Street. Breakfast was excellent gain, although I have to say, tea and coffee service was slow. We stayed an extra nigh on the Sunday and used the time to visit local museums. No stay at the hotel is complete without a visit to the lovely Champagne Bar, which is rather expensive, but hey - why not spoil yourself now and again?

Stayed here for one night. The location is excellent. Close to shops and bars but not close enough for any noise to bother you. The hotel has recently been refurbished to a high standard. Our room was nice and clean. The main issue we had was the beds. They were so uncomfortable. All the springs could be felt through the mattress which made it a very sleepless night. Would stay here again due to location but only if the beds were replaced.

Thank you for your fabulous review of your recent experience at the Grand Central.

It was a delight to read that you enjoyed the convenience and cleanliness of our establishment, though I was sorry to hear that you did not enjoy our beds.

I understand a member of our team has been in contact to ascertain your room number to have the mattress replaced, with the hope that we can avoid any further discomfort for our guests.

Thank you again for your feedback, I look forward to welcoming you back soon.

This hotel is a great location for shopping, drinking and eating out.

The staff were friendly and the bar was great! However the hotel could do with a good scrub as it's a bit scruffy at the edges. Overall a nice hotel but not luxurious...

Stayed for two nights Sunday to Tuesday,the staff,rooms,food,and comfort was fab,
The hotels going through renovation works,and obviously there's a wee bit of building noise, but that's only a minor issue, and when we reported this to the duty manager it was quickly addressed,
Certainly go back,so convenient for the trains,shops,bars etc,
To all the staff,
Thanks :)

Room Tip: Our room was 436 Apart from some local noise( other guests etc) the room was fab

This was a last minute booking for a 2 night trip to Glasgow and what a fabulous find.

The location is great for access to city centre, the Hotel staff and facilities were nothing other than Grand and were most defiantly value for money.

The room was standard and worth every penny its layout size and facilities were great.

The Tempest Restaurant for evening meal and breakfast was again first class and worth every penny.

There is a good deal with NCP Car-parking in nearby Oswald street which adjoins Central Station.

We will most defiantly recommend this Hotel and will return again in the near future.

Room Tip: 4th floor rooms nice and quiet
