Hi there! I have just had an absolutely wonderful weekend break , staying 2 nights at this lovely hotel. I have checked The Carlton George out before, but the price always seemed a little too dear for my liking. However I found a good offer of £180.43 for 2 nights stay (excluding breakfast) on the 'Hotels and Discount' website, so I snapped it up! The hotel is well place, right in the centre of just about everything. Its close to the shops, to restaurants, to George Square, within easy walking distance to Central station and close to the Tour bus stop. Although when you first walk in the hotel, you are not met by a huge reception area, the friendliness of the staff makes up for this. A young lady receptionist in particular was genuinely very kind hearted and warm. We had arrived early but she took care of our baggage whilst my husband and I went off shopping. When we came back, our rooms were ready and the baggage had been taken up to the room for us. Now I have stayed in many hotels, but this 'standard' room was the nicest I have ever stayed in. It was all rather palatial with drapes over the bed, draped curtains, a comfy armchair , very tastefully decorated with a touch of tartan. The bathroom was clean and spacious. Included in the price were bathrobes and slippers and wait for this......... 'A FREE MINIBAR'! Yes, you did read that correctly! Absolutely free! And there's more....... This was even topped up on our 2nd day! And there is still more....... there were also crystal glass decanters with gin, sherry and whisky in your room, that you could also help yourself to at no extra cost! This surely is quite exceptional! May I also mention the 'Windows' restaurant on the hotel's top floor, which provides you with a wonderful view of Glasgow rooftops. The food was marvellous and the staff, very attentive and pleasant in nature. The cost of the meal was not particularly expensive either, to say it is a 4* hotel. So, on the whole, this I can say with my hand on my heart was truly one of the nicest experiences of my stays in Glasgow. I used to think that nothing could compare to the Millenium Hotel but my stay at the Carlton George has now gone to the top of my list of Glasgow hotels. Keep up the good work Carlton George! You are excelling yourself!
