Loved this place! Absolutely stunning old building with so much history! Rooms are great size and clean with extras like tea/coffee, hairdryer, iron and toiletries. The champagne bar is lovely with great drinks and an amazing view over central station. Staff are friendly and helpful and if you ask for something they bring it straight away. Breakfast is down to... More

Stayed overnight for a concert, arrived early and had no problem leaving luggage until we could check in to our room. Spacious and well equipped room with good en suite. Had booked a deal which included afternoon tea, very enjoyable and generous amount, we struggled to eat all of it. After concert had a couple of drinks in the champagne... More

We were upgraded to a junior suite and the room was very smart and comfortable. The hotel is in a central location and has a good bar and restaurant. The room didn't have air conditioning and while this wasn't a problem for us - because the hotel is next to the train station I think in the summer the room... More

This hotel is in a prime location and is easy access to the train stations, restaurant's, pubs and all important shops! Our stay was very relaxing and our room was spacious, clean and quiet. We had a view looking over the station roof but never heard the trains. The staff at reception were very professional and friendly. We could not... More

The hotel offered spacious rooms which is not often the case for hotels in the UK so it was a treat, the staff were very courteous, the breakfast was good. We did not experience any noise so perhaps we were lucky and stayed in an area that muffled any disruptive noise. We stayed on the 3rd floor with a view... More

Not a bad hotel but nothing really special. Didn't get off to a great start. First room they gave us was on the 5th floor, weird layout for a suite -3 separate small rooms, plumbing made horrible noise, safe didn't work and it didn't smell real great. Moved us to a newer updated room which was far better but noisier... More

The Grand Central is an impressive old building right in the heart of Glasgow. Although the location was good, the rooms adequate and the staff friendly, my stay was far from perfect in a number of ways. Firstly, it's incredibly noisy. You pick up a lot of noise from the street (fair enough for a centrally located property i guess),... More

Located just 2 minutes from Buchanan St. we found that this hotel met all our needs. The staff were very helpful and courteous and the room was a generous size with an excellent bathroom. Everywhere was very clean. The hotel is adjacent to the large railway station so that opens up many destinations to the traveller. Overall we found this... More
