The Grand Central Hotel could not have been a better located hotel for our first visit to Glasgow. The shopping district was 2 blocks away and the train to Prestwick used the station and the walk to Buchanan Station, where we departed the train from Fort William, was a short walk away in spite of the street closing for the...

This hotel has recently been refurbished and is absolutely beautiful inside, the room was great, the staff were friendly and helpful, the location couldn't be better there was just a few things that dampened the experience. The wifi is £7.50 per day which is an absolute joke and giving the price of the rooms you would expect it to be... More

Stayed two nights over bank holiday phoned in advance to ask for a twin room this did not happen. The room was not service on the second day despite asking the maid twice and the reception manager once, eventually towels and tea were deposited in our room at 11.00pm. On checking out the manager said she would investigate what had... More

I stayed one night mid-week in August 2014 to attend a conference. Staff were friendly and accommodation was everything you need for an overnight stay - toiletries and towels were provided which always saves space in luggage. Albeit this was an excellent city centre location, I did not find it noisy on level 5. I loved Champagne Central with a... More

I stayed this month -August 2014-after the games were over. Being a Glaswegian I liked the friendly approach from the staff but the hotel left me cold-long walks down dingy corridors and the rooms were dark -it badly needs brightened up. It is noisy and that cannot be helped by its location. Not impressed with breakfast -food being warmed under... More

Was at a wedding recently held here, and have never been more disappointed with a venue in my life! The ballroom, where it was held could have been spectacular considering the size and history of it but appallingly it has been decorated very tackily! The "break out area" is also just as bad with no proper seating areas, poor considering... More

First time staying in the grand central hotel and will certainly not be the last. Modern hotel with very spacious rooms and very comfortable beds. No noise whatsoever which I was surprised about considering the size of the hotel and the number of rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent food. Will recommend to all family and friends. Couldn't find... More

I spent five nights in a "deluxe double" in August. The room was spacious, nice decor, the plumbing all worked fine (often a pet peeve of mine), I liked the towel warmer (which doubles as a sock dryer), the staff was friendly. On Saturday night there was a wedding party (or some kind of party) that played music until about... More
