Dear Saltire2506, I am sorry that our hotel wasn't to your tastes, as you can see from our reviews almost 90% of our guests feel that the Carlton George is Very Good or Excellent. We are a very different hotel form the Hilton, with an unbeatable location and a fantastic team. Regards Duncan Johnston General Manager More

Great value for money, clean rooms and en suite, friendly and helpful staff, lovely breakfast overlooking the city, comfy bed - all that was needed! Did not need the complimentary alcohol but some might like that. Great location too, central and close to everything in city centre.

Very small room (nice but small) inadequate lighting, only one reading chair, on back of hotel looking onto a light well.

We arrived early on a Thursday after a long flight from the USA, so I had prearranged an extra night so we'd have somewhere to lay our weary heads for a few hours before the official hotel check-in time of 2pm. In my mind I had envisaged a day-room concept but the hotel's interpretation was still a 12-noon checkout, so... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Based right in the heart of Glasgow, adjacent to Queen Street Station and Buchanan Street and with the airport bus service stopping right at our door, we are the perfect city centre base. We are four star rated, and each of our 64 bedrooms feature a complimentary Minibar and decanted spirits, multi channel LCD TV with Sky Sports 1, 2 and 3, desk, and bathroom with bath and power shower to ensure you have a comfortable and relaxing stay while you are with us. WiFi is free for the duration of your stay, and so are local phone calls. National calls are just 3p per minute. Located on the 7th floor of the hotel, Windows is Glasgow’s only rooftop restaurant. Windows Restaurant serves delicious dishes created with local produce with menus changing to reflect what’s in season. In fact, the food is only matched by the view over the rooftops of Glasgow! Breakfast is served in Windows in the morning, or can be delivered to your room for no additional fee. Guests can enjoy complimentary soft drinks, snacks and coffee throughout the day, and complimentary wine, beer and selected spirits each evening in the Executive Lounge located on the 7th floor. The lounge also features the Thomson Boardroom, ideal for meetings or private dining for up to 14 people. At the Carlton George Hotel we’ve worked hard to create a comfortable and informal setting where you can make yourself at home and relax, but still experience fantastic service. ... more   less
