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

Stayed overnight when travelling through Glasgow airport. This is lovely hotel refurbished with classic style. Our room was quirky and very comfortable but no view unfortunately. Fabulous location right by the main station so convenient for the city centre and all transport links. 15mins from Glasgow airport. The staff were quietly efficient and went the extra mile without even realising... More

After being booked into a B n B out of town we decided it might be better to stay closer to the city centre. I checked for available hotels and The Grand Central came up. After reading reviews on here, they are quite mixed, we decided to take the chance & booked 1 night, twin room with breakfast on Hotel... More

We were offered an online upgrade. We didn't get it without complaining. We were told the room was ours from 3pm. It wasn't. The staff are charming , the upgrade was beautiful when we got it. You need to be wary and on top of things.

I have stayed twice at this hotel, both times before an early train journey to London.The hotel is ideal for this due to the fact that it is in the station itself.
