Not been here for a couple of years. The rooms look as if they have been improved in the meantime. Service, location and rooms excellent. Breakfast was good but not as good as I remember. Really quite average. Pity really. Still worth a visit.

Run on a shoestring and badly in need of a major refurbishment. Staff very inexperienced but friendly, dinner ok but breakfast was very ordinary and substandard. Rooms are decorated in the worst conflicting colour schemes and our carpet was the brightest incongruous check you could image.

I agree with past reviews. We totally enjoyed our (too short of ) stay at the Carlton George Hotel. We were so pleased to have a large comfortable king room. Very clean and roomy. Complimentary mini bar is always nice. Location near Queen's Street station was a plus for us. Staff recommendations of a good fish restaurant did not disappoint... More

Both my husband and myself had previously stayed here as an anniversary weekend treat in 2014, and loved it so much we decided to come back to celebrate our next one. We stayed in the Club Balcony room. The hotel is centrally located- perfect for restaurants, bars, clubs etc. If you need to park your car, the Buchanan Galleries car... More

Really pleasantly surprised at the lovely large rooms we had. We were on the 4th floor and it looks like it has been recently refurbished. There is a complimentary bar in every room. The only downside for us, was, that the bed was not firm enough.

Dear brisbanemad, Thank you for your lovely review. The hotel has recently been refurbished, I'm glad you liked it. In regards to the bed, I apologise you didn't feel it was firm enough for you as we have just recently got new mattresses for the rooms. Hopefully we can welcome you back soon :) Kind regards, Chloe Streatfeild Sales Manager More

Nothing at all to complain about here. Great situation, near to Queen Street Station, Royal Concert Hall and amid shops. Staff were very polite friendly and helpful. The room was extremely well furnished and comfortable with tea, coffee and free mini bar!! Breakfast and dinner could not be faulted.

An excellent location, in the heart of the city. Four blocks from bus station. I came from Edinburgh in one hour bus. Great hospitality, you feel like in home. Rooms are huge, very comfortable and very quite. It has a nice view restaurant on the top of the building and a warm bar near the lounge.

Welcomed by Shannon and Owen, both super pleasant and helpful with our many inquiries. We travel from Canada for first time. Very comfortable room, amenities and location. Great Waxy O'Connor pub next door full of plentiful options and great people.

This is a great wee hotel in the heart of a busy city. It's location is excellent for transport links. The rooms are very nice, spacious and comfortable.
