Stayed 3 nights with my family. Children aged 9 and 14. Lovely spacious room, very central to visit the city. Only slightly marred by the noise of the station. Would stay here again, staff fantastic and very friendly.

Beautiful hotel. Our room over looked the station so was noisy but fab for people watching! I had earplugs so it didn't bother me! Great location for shopping, bars and restaurants. Breakfast was good and the champagne bar was fab! We asked to upgrade the wine that was included in our deal to prosecco. Had to ask 3 times and... More

I stayed at the Grand Central last Saturday with my husband. It was a flying visit to see friends in Glasgow and the hotel didn't disappoint. My track record at picking decent hotels is pretty bad, so this was a pleasant surprise. The location is nice and central, with the airport shuttle bus stopping just outside. It's also right next...

We returned to this lovely hotel as it is one of our favourites. The room we had was large and of high standard but this time our room was at the front of the hotel and was a bit noisy compared to the room we had last time overlooking the station. We dined in the tempus restaurant and had a... More

We spent time here with friends and found the hotel really great. The staff were helpfull and pleasant, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was .....probably one of the best hotel breakfasts I have had. Champagne Central is a wee bit pricey ......but hey I'm a tight Scotsman !!

we first came here in 1974 and we're sorry to hear the hotel had closed a few years back. Lucly, it has had a complete makeover and is full of old fashioned gentility with up to date features. Great staff, food and bedrooms

The team here do a brilliant job of running a super hotel. Rooms are well appointed, and the champagne bar is a good escape from the city. There are quieter locations and higher prices in Glasgow but we found the combination of room, service and central station convenience very hard to beat. We love Kenny Hunter's iconic Citizen Firefighter bronze... More

Stayed on a few occasions while on business. The place has history and character. Polite and helpful staff throughout. Breakfast room unusual and upholstery needs refreshing. Champagne bar lovely to sit prior to popping out for the evening. Breakfast good choice hot and appetising. Bedrooms are clean and tidy and comfortable.
