Having stayed in this centrally located hotel some 2 years ago, it was encouraging to find that the staff, particularly in the restaurant, were still as responsive and friendly. They even managed to keep their Glasgow sense of humour when my wife set a bread roll on fire by mistakenly trying to toast it in the bread toaster, rather than... More

Picked this just because of close location to Queen Street Station. We got lucky! It is a lovely hotel, really enjoyed our stay. Great room, lovely reception service - I don't know the name of the Argentinian guy on the desk but he made sure a one night stay for the four of us a lovely experience. We all look... More

Stayed for one night in an executive room. Having stayed before in a standard room would have to say for the difference in price next time will be back to the standard room. Bed extremely comfortable. Clean and all the usual things you expect in a hotel room. You do get a mini bar and decanters with whisky gin and... More

Booked the Carlton George to celebrate my husbands birthday. Booking over the phone was so easy and very efficiently handled. We arrived early but were immediately offered our room which was great. The room was spacious with a huge and extremely comfortable bed and a prefect temperature. All the usual amenities (TV, tea/coffee/ hairdryer etc) and the added bonus of... More

Was so looking forward to my stay after the majority of good reviews on Tripadvisor but sadly was very disappointed. Firstly our room was above the bar where they have live music playing until midnight and this was only 4.30pm. I called reception and they said they would get it turned down which didn't happen and when I called a... More

Dear Ruby53Scotland, Please accept my apologies for the noise coming from Waxy O'Connor's- this isn't something we get too many comments about, thank you for letting us know. I understand my team had offered to move you to a quieter room, a number of our rooms do look into a lightwell, they are however very quiet. Being in the heart... More

A clean hotel with big rooms and very amicable service. Mini bar and executive lounge have free alcohol, but of course poor quality. And the bar next door is a bit loud and trashy for my taste. But all in all, beds comfy and WiFi worked although patchy. Its not amazing but it is fine

Thank you for the review, I was surprised to read that you felt the selection of complimentary drinks were poor quality- we use Bell's Whisky, Gordon's Gin and Smirnoff Vodka- good brands. Glad you were otherwise happy. Regards Duncan Johnston General Manager More

Just returned from staying at the Carlton George, which is an ideal location to stay after a day shopping and enjoying a night out in one of Britain's best and vibrant cities. Ideally situated within steps of Queen Street station, shopping heaven - Buchanan Street (and Buchanan Galleries shopping mall), fabulous restaurants and bars. The hotel, sadly, needs to pull...

We enjoyed a very pleasant stay at the Carlton George. We paid for the upgraded executive room with breakfast and we were very happy. The use of the executive lounge was very good with complimentary drinks. The complimentary minibar and the decanted spirits in the room was also appreciated. The room itself was large and had everything you would need... More

Stayed in the Carlton George for 3 nights in January 2015. Excellent all round. Didn't try their restaurant so can't comment on that. Room - spacious and very comfortable, free bar - restocked daily, air conditioned, quiet rooms - no slamming of corridor doors! Strongly recommend to others and looking forward to staying there again.
