4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Situated just a block from the train station, near buses and a bustling shopping and foodie area, this was the perfect place to stay before flying back to the states. From eating a filling meal at Waxy O'Connor's, accessible through the lobby, to the complimentary bar (decanters of Whiskey, Gin, and Vodka) and stocked fridge with soda, juice, and mixers,... More

Stayed one night, room very nice and no street noise despite overlooking main road. Only criticism is that I do not like shower over bath but that is personal choice. Otherwise room well appointed, good facilities apart from ancient low power hairdryer and coffee machine which dispensed beautiful Illy coffee that was tepid!!!

The hotel is very close to Queen Street station and a short walk to Glasgow Central station. My wife and I stayed for two nights, once on our arrival in Scotland and once at the end. It would have been nice to open the windows because we found the room a little on the warm side. The bed was 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
