4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Lovely old hotel . Very long corridors , so if your suitcase is heavy , get a porter . Comfortable bed and bathroom/shower nice . Two lifts so not too long to wait. Very friendly staff. Enjoyable 3 night stay.

When you book a hotel like the Grand Central, it must be a deliberate choice. This is a hotel that is replete with character, and it's history can be seen in the smoothly worn wooden balustrades, the mottled wood flooring in the slightly dulled wall-paper and the lighting which never quite seems enough. Yet, you walk into it, and you... More

I checked into this hotel after an arduous journey. I was greeted by Susan on reception who instantly made me feel at ease. She sorted me out with a lovely room and I will stay here again and recommend all my colleagues do the same. The room was clean and modern with all amenities. The food in the restaurant was... More

This is one of the grand old railway hotels located right on Glasgow Central Station. Glasgow has become a city of walking streets without motor traffic. A good starting point - fly into Glasgow then there are trains running to all locations in Scotland and England. Our room was upgraded as in the 1970's I worked for British Transport Hotels... More

Hotel looks amazing, I was in room 322 which was brilliant. Quiet, comfortable and clean. Only draw back was that when I arrived at 9/9.30 there was no food available apart from room service. Would've been nice to be able to have food outside of my room!

This is a really great building in the city centre. The public areas are gorgeous and the staff all helpful. Our receptionist could have done with listening to names a little more carefully! I do have to mention the mixed room - very comfortable bed, huge bathroom, but oppressively warm. Opening the window was just too loud so it didn't... More

Checked into this hotel yesterday. Arrived by train from London so was very convenient to check in here as there is an entrance inside Central Station. Checked in with front desk agent Anna. Told I would have to pay my room bill in full before checking in - was told by Anna that they have untrustworthy guests and that's the... More

Just spent another wonderful night here. The staff were great and the food was fantastic. We had a deluxe room which was huge and the most enormous bed I've every seen. The shower was wonderful too. If I was going to fault something, with a 12pm checkout I wouldn't have expected housekeeping to knock on my door at 8.30am -... More
