Stayed here with my partner for two nights in one of the executive rooms. For the UK, we found to room to be spacious. It isn't the Ritz Carlton, but for the price, we were really pleased. Front desk service was always polite and helpful. This hotel couldn't have been in a better location to walk around- very close to... More

When we arrived at this hotel, we were really pleased. Amazing location right next to the train station, lovely room, great club lounge upstairs where we had a drink, near the shops and restaurants. We couldn't fault it until we went to bed...... The pillows were disgusting. They stank! It was late and we were tired and didn't do anything... More

The music in the lobby is great, I was dancing from the moment I walked in! The reception staff were very friendly. The rooms are comfortable but the A/C wasn't working when we checked in. Bathrobes are a great quality and the tartan slippers were just the right touch. A pleasure to be here because of the great location.

A lovely hotel with personalised service. Extremely helpful staff, nice rooms, well equipped with all one needs, and exceptionally well situated not only right next to the railway station and the metro but also just off a principal shopping street. Really well received and the breakfast restaurant rooftop terrace was a fitting end to the visit.

A perfectly pleasant hotel in Central Glasgow. Prices are not inconsiderable, but our package involved a free minibar, access to the complimentary lounge on the 7th floor and a basic breakfast. There was only one real downside, but unfortunately it was a big one. The AC was completely broken (possibly for the entire hotel) and the temperature sat somewhere around... More

The Carlton George is very well situated, within spitting-distance of Glasgow’s main shopping street, Buchanan Street. Our reception was pleasant enough. In Scotland you are expected to carry your bags to your room by yourself - actually I prefer this as it avoids one having to fumble for a tip (for which you inevitably haven’t the right change). The room... More

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
