I stayed in Carlton George for one week in August 2012.
This is a very good place to stay in Glasgow fro several reasons. First of all it is located in the center of the city AND next door to the Queen street train station. Most of what you want to see within walking distance. King size bed is unusual in Europe at the sub $300 per night price point.
Staff was very helpful and friendly. From the Queen Street Station you can take a train to Edinburgh, its only 50 minutes.
There is free mini-bar in that hotel. The mini bar consists of two parts: one a traditional, small refrigerator and scotch, gin and vodka decanters.
I stayed in "business room" which gives you free Wi Fi and access to the 7th floor lounge where you can have free snacks and drinks. That would be a good place to meet with colleges or friends before taking off for the night or coming back.
The included breakfast was OK: scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, meats and fruits. Oh yes, you can order breakfast to your room, which worked out really nice. Staff was very punctual and my breakfast was delivered on time. I used it a couple of times.
This hotel is an exceptional value for such a good service.
