Stayed in room 219 which was very nice and large. Very disappointed in the room service choice as I am a regular here and in the past always enjoyed the haggis and the fish cakes, however I was told they were working in the new menu. I look forward to seeing the new menu.

I again stayed at this fab hotel early January 2015 for 4 nights. I cannot recommend the Carlton George highly enough. The staff were as lovely as always and Tony on reception was as friendly and helpful as ever. The food is of a high standard and the executive lounge is a lovely place to relax and unwind with a...

In Glasgow for 2 nights during Celtic Connections. Perfect location for Queen Street station, Concert Hall and countless restaurants. We needed no introduction to the facilities as we've stayed here before. The room was warm, comfortable and equipped with very welcome extras - eg the free mini-bar, which we made great use of. We slept well thanks to the huge,... More

This hotel is in a great location for the city yet still manages to be really quiet (it was in our room anyway) Also the best blackout curtains I've seen for ages! The room was spacious, clean and comfy with a huge bed, and amazingly a free mini bar and spirits! Good power shower too. Breakfast was OK and with... More

Birthday Weekend in Glasgow staying at the Carlton. Could not fault staff in all areas. Great upgrade to complimentary lounge bar - absolutely worth it. Rooms small but location to shops, railway and restaurants cannot be beaten. Loved to secret door connecting to Waxy O'Connors - what a difference! I stay in many hotels all round the UK for business... More

Delighted that you found the hidden door to Waxy O'Connor's! Next time you must try Alston Bar & Beef, almost hidden under Glasgow Central station- well worth looking for. Regards Duncan Johnston General Manager More

Thanks Wendy-peter, Glad you had such a great stay again, we changed the beer to a Scottish product, changing again to Tennent's. All your ratings were great, though you look to have made a mistake in the overall score, only giving us a 1! Hope to see you soon Duncan More

Stayed at the Carlton George for the first time for a couple of days just after New Year, and it would definitely be my hotel of choice now anytime I am in Glasgow. Can't really say much more than what has been said already ... great central location, lovely spacious rooms, and fantastic food both morning and night. What really... More
