“always enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Inclusive mini-bar, complimentary drinks in the residents lounge and superb food all add up to making this one of the best stays in Glasgow. You need to book a room that gives access to the lounge but the value is brilliant. Dinner in Windows is a treat and the DBB offer often amazing so go for that if you can. The lounge can get crowded but you usually get a seat and how the wonderful staff cope is beyond belief. A two day break leaves you feeling like you have had a weeks holiday. Location for shops cinema theatre station and car park is first class. A gem.

Stayed January 2014, travelled with friends

My family and I loved this hotel. It was just around the corner from the train station, so we didn't need a car service or a cab to get all 6 of us to the hotel. The room was clean and comfy. A very nice shopping district was just down the street within walking distance. The staff was so nice and accommodating. Breakfast was not included with the price of the room, but the restaurant on the top floor was very good.

We booked into the Carlton George because it is about a minute's walk from Queen Street and we had an early train to catch. It was stunning value for money; the service was excellent, and we enjoyed dinner in the rooftop restaurant with amazing views of the Glasgow rooftops. The mini-bar was an added bonus; the room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Absolutely nothing to complain about; we'll be back and we highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We were on the 6th floor; nice and quiet and one floor down from the restaurant.

We stayed 3 nights in an Executive double room and it was very good, free drinks in room and good wi-fi. I could be picky and say the view was not great and better lighting would have helped my wife but overall we really enjoyed our stay. The location of the hotel is central but be warned there is no on-site parking, arrangements exist with a nearby multi-storey Car Park. Queen Street Train station is just around the corner and that is really handy for trains to Edinburgh. Walking out of the hotel you are just 1 minute away from Buchanan street which is one of the main shopping areas. Nice pubs around in Glasgow, but make sure you visit Waxy O'Connors which is next to the hotel! Great food and great atmosphere! The Executive lounge at the 7th floor gives you free drinks and snacks although the re-provision is a little bit hit and miss.

The location of the hotel is perfect. I travelled with the shuttle bus from the airport, which only takes 25 minutes max. And the bus stopped in front of the hotel! Train station around the courner. Walking out of the hotel you are just 1 minute away from the Shopping street Buchanan street. Nice pubs around in Glasgow, but make sure you visit Waxy O'Connors which is next to the hotel! Great food and great atmosphere! After work and some shopping I visited the lounge at the 7th floor, which give you free drinks and snacks, perfect place to relax! No doubt you like this place!

This hotel is in a great location in the city and has its good points (you get a free bar in your room, gin, vodka, whiskey, wine etc, which is replenished every day) but the internet is very random only working some times and not very well if your using an I pad. The reception know about this and although many people report it they can not rectify the problem. The rooms are not stylish neither is the restaurant so it is very hit and miss on all accounts.

Room Tip: Wifi is very random, hardly working at all, you have to call a special number every day to be connec...

We do sometimes have some issues with connecting our WIFI to i-pads, though this is easily solvable. I do hope you will return to the Carlton George.
