Came during the Commonwealth Games. The hotel reception staff were fabulous despite me arriving early with several queries about the games. I had an upgrade to a junior suite and the quality was superb. Can't recommend highly enough

This hotel seems to be about what shortcomings you are prepared to put up with at considerable cost for the excellent central location. The reception staff are charming and helpful, and the breakfast is good, but be warned the rooms are not air-conditioned and those facing into the station concourse have to keep their windows closed because of the noise....

Got a great deal for afternoon tea, champagne and bed and breakfast. Decor in rooms fabulous and afternoon tea an absolute treat. The hotel location is superb for all shopping, restaurants and bars. And of course travel. The unfortunate side of it being such a gorgeous building is the restriction of the refurbishment not to include double glazing as it's... More

Modern, tastefully decorated, shower to die for, HDTV embedded into the mirror ... Good meals and accommodation for the conference. So central. Built as part of the Glasgow Railway Station... More

It was the first time I've been to the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow. This hotel is very central, great if you are arriving into Central Station by train, as there is an entrance from the station. Very old, grand looking hotel with very comfortable modern rooms. The hotel staff were friendly and welcoming. We stayed in an executive double... More

stayed 2 nights on way to foreign holiday. liked the location, bang in city centre. this is old school hotelling. the décor is reminiscent of the great old days of train travel - wood panelling and art deco lighting. the concierge team are very helpful. I especially enjoyed the buffet style breakfast which was heavily discounted during our stay, very... More

Very old, grand looking hotel with very comfortable modern rooms. There's a couple of on-site bars but your right in the heart of Glasgow's night life so if not too tired better on foot and do some wandering! The hotel staff were friendly and welcoming. We had a "street view" room but wasn't too noisy, however we were 4th floor,... More

Our third overnight stay in this iconic hotel. Once again just superb. It was a great dinner bed and breakfast deal ( with two vouchers for a glass of champagne). Staff wonderful, dinner great ( the duck I had was superb) and the breakfast was fantastic. The location is wonderful with much of Glasgows shopping and nightlife on your doorstep.... More

Stayed for two nights in a standard double room which was quite comfy and spacious. Big bathroom. Shower over the huge bath so no good for anyone aged or immobile in any way. Very disappointed to find no free WiFi provided throughout the hotel. Really? This took the gloss off any value for money as the tariff is not cheap.... More
