A short walk from fine restaurants of every sort, right next to a subway station, and around the corner from the magnificent George Square, the hotel couldn't be better situated. We had a comfortable stay, and the supply of decanter of whiskey is a nice touch.

Despite asking for a room overlooking the street we were put in a room at the back of the hotel with no view. Booked afternoon tea and overnight stay. Bedroom comfortable Afternoon tea overpriced. Other local hotels and restaurants offer a better standard of afternoon tea. I have stayed at this hotel previously and now feel it is overpriced and... More

Absolutely appalling from start to finish. I had booked afternoon tea as a treat for my elderly mothers birthday. We arrived on time but had to wait 30 minutes to be served which was unacceptable as I had pre booked the table and the meals as one of which was gluten free I had to re order everything again as...

Dear Grant990, Please accept my sincere apologies for the poor afternoon tea experience this weekend. We obviously got it very wrong on this occasion, I can assure you that this is not a normal Window's restaurant experience. Should you wish to discuss things further, please get in touch. Yours Duncan Johnston General Manager More

We were given a two night stay in an executive room and dinner for or anniversary form our family. We had been before and chose this hotel. We were given a nice room according to the receptionist. Our room was at the back looking on to offices and above a lane which houses a pub. We noticed the cold ad... More

I am sorry that you had issues with the air-conditioning in your room, and that this was not resolved quickly. My team had told me that your daughter had come in to speak with us also. Our air-conditioning system is pretty reliable, I am sorry that this had not been checked before your arrival. I do hope it will not... More

I stayed in an executive room at the Carlton George for one night last week. The welcome at check in was great & the guy on reception was really friendly and helpful. The room was fine, comfortable if a little dated but that didn't bother me. The free mini bar with crystal decanters & glasses is a lovely touch and... More

stayed a night here for business trip, hotel is at a great location, rooms are large, clean, very nice. But shame about the hair dryer, for a room as grand as this, i'd expect the hotel to spend a little bit and put in a normal hair dryer than one of those attached to the drawer. Breakfast was disappointing, everything... More
