“Great hotel & service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

We chose the Carlton purely due to its proximity to Glasgow Queen Street Station, next time I will choose it because it is a great hotel! The staff are about the friendliest I have ever come across in any hotel I have stayed in, they showed Scottish hospitality at its best. The room was perfectly good with free wi-fi & mini bar included in the tariff. We only ate breakfast in the hotel but that we really good with a choice of either cooked or continental.

We chose this Hotel because of its location as we were going to a Chris de Burgh concert at the Concert Hall. The proximity of the hotel was ideal and we would use it in the future for any other concerts. Staff were very helpful and we were impressed with everything at the hotel.

Only stayed for one night, reception staff friendly, room ok (slight gimmick of free mini bar), good location. The much vaunted scottish breakfast was a typical example of how Brits get it wrong - poorly cooked, poorly presented and poorly served. Given the price i would have expected much better

Been staying at the Carlton George for a number of years. It's my first choice when visiting Glasgow. Cheaper than many other chain hotels. Real homely feel. Lovely comfy rooms, amazing food and just great to relax in. The free exec lounge on the too floor is fab to sit and relax in with a glass of wine. Lovely food in the restaurant. Very attentive staff. Free wifi. Great location. Right in the heart of the shops yet still quiet and restful. I will definitely return!

stayed at the carlton george for 3 nights ..business trip. This hotel offers so much for the traveller. I stayed in an excutive room, bed was big and comfortable, free mini bar was a big plus and a cabinet containing decanters of spirits what more could a girl ask for ......oh yes a private guest lounge with free bar !.....staff were marvelous and so friendly ....I am coming back to stay here later in the year and can not wait.

As a solo traveller I sometimes feel a bit awkward....not in this hotel ....its like being at home.
