Very nice hotel - good service and really enjoyed the lounge where you have access to coffee and drinks at no extra charge. Breakfast can improve a bit. Location is superb. Owen was very good at reception.

Only had two nights in Glasgow for a quick stopover from Edinburgh. Extremely convenient location next to Glasgow Queen Street train station, and despite it's excellent proximity to the train station and the city centre, the hotel was very quiet and comfortable. The room was a standard double, clean, and comfortable. Amenities were appreciated including breakfast to the room, although... More

We booked one night at this hotel. Excellent location- very central. Staff couldn't be more helpful or friendly. The room was fine although we were expecting something a little larger for the price. Bathroom ok although in need of a bit of an update.

The best feature of the Carlton George is its central location, close to the restaurants, bars and shops of Buchanan Street and George Square. I booked online and paid a premium price for a Club Balcony room. The room can only be described as standard size with a barely useable balcony overlooking the street. The Club description is based on... More

We stayed only one night. The room was impeccable. The service too. So was the breakfast. What a great view from the restaurant. All the little things added up to a great experience. Highly recommended . We only wished we could stay a few days more.

Lovely hotel right in the middle of everything - rooms big and cosy- beds very comfortable- only disappointment was restaurant closed early as the chef had left early which seemed odd. Full free minibar in the room and three decanters of gun,vodka and whiskey.

Very central location, although earplug would be a good idea due to this. We upgraded to the Executive lounge which was lovely and cosy, free flowing drinks and little nibbles available. Also a well stocked minibar in the attractively decorated room. Breakfast next morning was good too with a lovely view across the Glasgow rooftops, would defo stay here again

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.
