“Girls weekend break”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Booked another stay at this fabulous hotel. The staff are friendly and very helpful and really do make your stay most enjoyable. The hotel is ideally located for all the shops and bars. We decided to eat at the hotel for our evening meal and they had changed the menu since our last stay but again they didn't disappoint us. The quality and presentation of the food is amazing and excellent value for money. Thank you once again to Hector and all the staff team. We will return again very soon !

If only this Hotel was as nice as the Website suggests.

Great location but after that it all went downhill. Room was dark, noisy ( bar ventilation right outside the window) and a little grubby.

Restaurant was again a little tired and food at best average.

This place needs a total refurbishment and needs to hire more cleaners.

Would happily have gone without the free drinks for decent accommodation and cleanliness.

Views from the roof top restaurant rather grim. Afraid I wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

Dear epshearer,

I am sorry that our hotel was not to your tastes, we do get some very positive comments regarding our accommodation. Being in the city centre is a real bonus and the views from Windows restaurant are certainly not "grim", there is some fabulous architecture visible.

Sadly only stayed at this fabulous hotel, just off George Square, for 1 night. I could not fault anything from the friendly and efficient concierge to the sumptuous, spotless room to the fabulous breakfast in what is apparently the city's only rooftop restaurant.
My room was on the 5th floor and whilst there was no view everything inside was perfect from the king sized bed to the power shower and free mini bar. A particularly nice touch were the decanters and cut glass tumblers - no plastic rubbish at the Glasgow George!
George the concierge made some excellent recommendations which we followed and consequently enjoyed the local Charcoals curry house (do try!), complementary drinks at the adjoining bar and a wee dram from a fantastic choice at the Pot Still.
After an invigorating shower the following morning's breakfast was plentiful and cooked to order with plenty of alternatives for those like me who dislike the standard fry-up....
This will definitely be my hotel of choice next time I'm in Glasgow!

Was unsure about this last minute booking however was pleasantly suprised. The afternoon tea was £10 per person and there was more than enough to go round. Food was lovely, staff were great and would highly recommend as excellent value for money.

Afternoon tea has been very popular over the summer- the Portugese custard tarts are my own favourite!

First time at the Carlton George, but have stayed many times at the sister hotel in Scheveningen beach in the Hague. So when I checked in and mentioned it would be hard to beat the Carton Beach, the guy behind the reception said come and tell me what you think when you check out.

I entered the room, case onto the stand and checked the mini bar - everything was free. Then I spotted the corner cabinet which held the 3 x crystal decanters with Whisky, Gin and Vodka. Large solid crystal drinks tumblers to consume the drinks. Fantastic, but I couldn't drink everything...but I thought, what the hell, I'll give it a go.

The room was spotless,bed very comfy and bathroom spacious. Power shower delivered lots of hot pressurised water.
Big screen Samsung TV and trouser press, which is absent in most hotels nowadays, so I was grateful for this. Iron board, plenty hangers and spare unused power sockets for charging-up the laptop, tablets and phones etc.

The lounge on the 7th floor is also a bonus if you want relax, read some magazines, surf the net or even better, when you demolish your mini-bar contents, somehow manage to drain the 3 decanters of spirits in your room and even more surprising after drinking all the booze you manage to find the Club Lounge - you can then enjoy even more free drinks!!!!
There is a nice coffee machine there as well.

So when I checked out, I had to say to the manager I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and yes, it was an extremely nice hotel and can't wait to be back. I managed to avoid having to compare it as that isn't fair.

In summary, excellent location for shops. Free drinks. Great restaurant. Wonderful staff. Nice rooms. Free drinks. Club Room on 7th floor + Free drinks. Trouser press & ironing board. Free drinks. Comfy bed + big flat screen TV + Free drinks

Room Tip: Rooms are rear of hotel nice and quiet but no view

Second visit to this hotel within couple of months and had a fantastic weekend. I cannot fault anything in this hotel from the friendly excellent service of staff to cleanliness and comfort and location is central to everything. Hector made us so welcome on arrival and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. The quality of the food in the restaurant was excellent and again service was fantastic.
I highly recommend anyone to stay at this hotel for any break to Glasgow and will definitely be returning in the short term. Special thanks to Hector, Jamie and the young lady in the executive lunge (jo if I remember rightly). Highly recommended

I stayed here duriny the Commonwealth Games. I was a guest of Iron Bru and had a fantastic time. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful nothing too much bother. We were shown to our room and was shown around free mini bar and decanters with Whisky Gin and Vodka all free (bonus). The room was small but comfortable and well decorated. We had the use of an executive lounge also free bar. The breakfast was good and plenty of it.
