A good hotel for staying in Glasgow and get to know what the city has to offer. Location plays an important role in my bookings, was right on this one. Was walking distance from many of the places I went. A coworker, by coincidence, told that he stayed here 15 years ago and gave other feedback, however this place was... More

Location of the Grand Central Hotel was great, able to walk to shopping, Queen St train station, and the World Pipe Band Championships at Glasgow Green. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Rachel at reception was so nice and apologetic when our rooms were not ready until 3:00, which is check in anyway. She could not do... More

Would love to stay at this hotel again, couldn't fault anything. Didn't realise until we got there that it was a deluxe room, which meant more floor space and nice extras. First time I'd used getaroom to book accommodation too, so I will use them again

I arranged a group visit for 25 people to Glasgow to see various museums, churches, houses etc. This hotel was recommended as somewhere William Morris stayed, many years ago! From dealing with group booking to a slick arrival - no long queue all keys ready in named envelopes, all aspects of our stay, including dinners in a private room were... More

A lovely hotel in a great location right in the center of Glasgow. The recent £20 million pound refurbishment has been done very nicely retaining much of the character. The hotel is well sound proofed so you don't hear the train station or the noise of the streets below. Friendly staff too.

This place is never not busy. It is located on the corner of Central Station and serves as a small conference hotel as well. Turns out conferencing is one of Glasgow's economic advantages. So even with all the hum and taking care of tourists too, the staff are professional at all times, never looking dour and always quick to smile.... More

We had booked a Railway themed break in Scotland and thought that there was no better place to stay than at an hotel that even had its own entrance from the Central Station concourse direct into reception. Alot of money had been spent restoring this 'old lady' to the style and grandeur that she had enjoyed when the railways were... More

I liked this hotel a lot. It has been refurbished relatively recently and the decor is attractive and , quite interesting. The staff is very competent. The location is, of course, as good as it gets. I recommend staying here, but there are several caveats. In ascending order of importance: (1) There is a surprisingly high level of street noise.... More

Stayed here for the first time in July, and would most certainly go back again. The building itself is spectacular, and the interior is a nice mix of traditional and contemporary. I was a bit worried about the noise, I'd read reviews on this site about noise from the train station etc... this was not an issue, we heard no... More
