Got this on a group on voucher. I left it very last minute to book, but the girl on the phone was very pleasant and accommodating(used voucher on the last day)The windows restaurant is on the 7th floor, the views were fab, the surrounds were great and there was a great buzz in Glasgow itself, with the common wealth games....

My husband and I spent a couple of nights in this hotel last week. When we arrived, we thought that the air conditioning in our room was not working too well but wanted to give it a chance to cool down. After about an hour, and even though I had already "settled in" and taken a bath, the room was... More

Dear AtlantaDoll, Thanks for your patience with the air conditioning last week. I'm pleased that you liked room 110, even with the city centre location the noise form the street is minimal. I hope you have a safe trip back to Georgia! Regards Duncan Johnston General Manager More

A quiet oasis in the middle of the hussle and bussle near Queen Street Station. The rooms are comfortable and contain a well stocked complimentary mini bar. The 7th floor restaurant has excellent views across the Glasgow skyline.

This is a hard rating. On one side there is the location, free internet and free mini bar with the nicest crystal glasses I ever had in any hotel. On the other side, is the state of the room. Black mold in the bathroom shower, and the cleaning of the room is very superficial. Lots of dirt around and behind... More

Dear starviagera, I am sorry that you had such a mixed experience. You did arrive 1 day earlier than you had booked, luckily we had 1 room left and were able to accommodate you. Thank you for the feedback regarding the room, we certainly do take these comments on board. Regards Duncan Johnston General Manager More

Having been fortunate enough to have stayed in most of the 'brand named' hotels in Glasgow such as Hilton / Marriot / Crowne Plaza I thought I would try something different for an anniversary. I'm very glad I did and would say this is the best hotel I have stayed at in Glasgow for the price (£100-150) As other reviews... More

Inclusive mini-bar, complimentary drinks in the residents lounge and superb food all add up to making this one of the best stays in Glasgow. You need to book a room that gives access to the lounge but the value is brilliant. Dinner in Windows is a treat and the DBB offer often amazing so go for that if you can.... More

My family and I loved this hotel. It was just around the corner from the train station, so we didn't need a car service or a cab to get all 6 of us to the hotel. The room was clean and comfy. A very nice shopping district was just down the street within walking distance. The staff was so nice... More

We booked into the Carlton George because it is about a minute's walk from Queen Street and we had an early train to catch. It was stunning value for money; the service was excellent, and we enjoyed dinner in the rooftop restaurant with amazing views of the Glasgow rooftops. The mini-bar was an added bonus; the room was very comfortable... 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
