Carlton George is right in centre of Glasgow. Easy to get to from airport. Bus stops at Buchannan station almost beside hotel. By car they have a £10 deal for 24 hrs in Buchannan car park. Rooms well appointed. Worth upgrade to exec room. Free mini bar and drinks in Exec lounge!! Restaurant lovely view of City. Love to return!!

The location, service, rooms and extras such as the mini bar and executive lounge all made for a fantastic stay! However this was marred by the most appalling excuse for vegetarian breakfast I have ever experienced- some mushrooms, half a tomato and a potato scone!!!!!! No veggie sausage- not exactly hard to find nor even a hash brown or baked... More

Please accept my sincere apologies that the vegetarian breakfast let us down. I have discussed this with my Chef and we will always have a full range of vegetarian options available. I was pleased that you enjoyed the hotel in general and do hope that you will visit us again. Kind Regards Duncan Johnston General Manager More

We had a 1 night stay at the Carlton George and it was good. The room was clean, the bed was great and the restaurant at the topfloor served a great afternoon tea, diner and breakfast. We really enjoyed it!

Great location. Executive lounge access worth paying extra for as it is very comfortable. Breakfast was good one day and not so the other. Homely and comfortable. Parking was an issue as one way systems are confusing and they suggest parking in a certain multi-story car park, do lots of research before you go if you drive there, it is... More

Dear barabrithWales, I was delighted to read that you loved our hotel, We do try to provide a much more personal service than some of the large corporate chains. With regards to the one way system in Glasgow, it does get rather confusing and seems to change regularly! I do hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to... More

Excellent location in heart of city. Excellent staff. Pity no on-site parking. Enjoyed food and view from penthouse restraunt. Good Exec Lounge let down one evening by no staff and no glasses. Call to reception fixed this but shouldnt have happened. Very good value.

Lovely welcome from check in staff. Great room though was looking on to an internal shaft - mind you better than a roadside view as it was quiet. Minibar and decanters of gin, whisky and vodka plus two free drinks vouchers for hotel bars - such a contrast to the rip off minibars you encounter everywhere else. Also full marks... More

Dear Saltire2506, I am sorry that our hotel wasn't to your tastes, as you can see from our reviews almost 90% of our guests feel that the Carlton George is Very Good or Excellent. We are a very different hotel form the Hilton, with an unbeatable location and a fantastic team. Regards Duncan Johnston General Manager More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Based right in the heart of Glasgow, adjacent to Queen Street Station and Buchanan Street and with the airport bus service stopping right at our door, we are the perfect city centre base. We are four star rated, and each of our 64 bedrooms feature a complimentary Minibar and decanted spirits, multi channel LCD TV with Sky Sports 1, 2 and 3, desk, and bathroom with bath and power shower to ensure you have a comfortable and relaxing stay while you are with us. WiFi is free for the duration of your stay, and so are local phone calls. National calls are just 3p per minute. Located on the 7th floor of the hotel, Windows is Glasgow’s only rooftop restaurant. Windows Restaurant serves delicious dishes created with local produce with menus changing to reflect what’s in season. In fact, the food is only matched by the view over the rooftops of Glasgow! Breakfast is served in Windows in the morning, or can be delivered to your room for no additional fee. Guests can enjoy complimentary soft drinks, snacks and coffee throughout the day, and complimentary wine, beer and selected spirits each evening in the Executive Lounge located on the 7th floor. The lounge also features the Thomson Boardroom, ideal for meetings or private dining for up to 14 people. At the Carlton George Hotel we’ve worked hard to create a comfortable and informal setting where you can make yourself at home and relax, but still experience fantastic service. ... more   less
