The Carlton George is a lovely hotel in a great location, just around the corner from Glasgow Queen Street Rail Station and close to city centre shops and restaurants. The hotel is tastefully decorated and furnished and seems to have had some recent refurbishment. It looks great! Our bedroom was very nice and had a really comfortable bed. The only... More

We've stayed at the Carlton George a number of times over recent years and enjoyed it every time. The breakfast is a highlight, as is the executive lounge. The rooms are very comfortable (tartan accessories must be for the American tourists surely?) and the staff are friendly and helpful. Central location is great for shopping and dining out. Looking forward... More

Although aware that there were no carparking facilities on-site, we had not realised that it is impossible to drive past the hotel entrance due to traffic road restrictions. Fortunately, reception staff assisted us to bring luggage from an adjacent street, whilst we parked our car in Buchanan Galleries Carpark. The refurbished hotel facilities are pleasing, although the King bed had... More

Dear Peter A, Thank you for the review. I am sorry about the traffic restrictions, these were implemented by Glasgow City Council, with no thought of the impact on businesses and visitors to the city. Delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Regards Duncan Johnston General Manager More

This is a lovely little hotel right in the heart of Glasgow; next to shopping streets, Queen street station and George's square. You don't get better location than this. The room was very cozy with tartan tiles in the bathroom (even tartan slippers!) and the bed was comfortable (even though it was two small beds put together, not a king... More

I had bought a Voucher for Afternoon Tea some months before without knowing too much about the hotel. On arrival on the ground floor we were directed to the 7th floor restaurant where we were met by Gary, the waiter and shown to our table. The restaurant is called the Windows, for the very obvious reason that one whole wall... More

Myself and my fiancé spent one night here as a birthday celebration. The hotel is in a fantastic location, near all the main city centre attractions-shops, bars, restaurants etc. It's also right next to the train station and subway should you want to venture further. We had an executive room which was very well appointed and had a huge comfy... More
