    Comfortable hotel with more than just helpful staff. The drink extras in the room made our overnight stay with breakfast very enjoyable. Overnight Parking is discounted but the car park is unfortunately away from the hotel.

    We had booked the Carlton George in Glasgow for eight nights since it was one of three hotels close to the University of Strathclyde near the city centre. The three other choices were Premier Inn, Z and Millennium hotels. In terms of proximity to George Square, arguably the heart of the city centre, as well as The Style Mile, the... More

    On arrival the staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel seemed well maintained. Our executive room was clean and a reasonable size. There was free WiFi available and the complementary mini bar and decanters were a nice touch. The executive lounge was good and you could help yourself to spirits, wine, pilsner and mixers after 5pm which we did... More

    From the minute you check in at the friendliest of receptions, this hotel just keeps on delivering! The room I had was huge, with a very large comfortable bed and lovely bathroom, fluffy, quality robe and...tartan slippers! The room, as others have noted, has crystal decanters and glasses of spirits, which I don't drink, but thought was an exclusive touch,... More

    We had a deluxe double room which was pretty amazing. In the cabinet is 3 crystal decanters each containing whisky, gin and vodka...all inclusive in the room. Then you also have a minibar...all inclusive too, filled with beers, wine, soft drinks and water. The restaurant on the top floor is fabulous. Great food, great hotel...we will be back.
