We stayed here for my husband's birthday. The hotel had been recommended by a friend, and we were not disappointed. Room was spacious and clean, check in was smooth and staff were friendly. The icing on the cake was the free mini bar and free executive lounge. We felt truly spoiled. We were also given vouchers for a free drink in 2 city pubs, one of which could be accessed directly from the hotel. The late checkout was also excellent, nothing worse than having to be out for 10 when you are trying to relax. Will be back!

Second visit to the Carlton George and even better than we remembered. Really central location between George Square and Buchanan Street but rooms are quiet and really comfortable. Crystal glasses and decanters of spirits in addition to free minibar is a lovely touch and my husband was pretty convinced that the whisky was a good malt. We enjoyed a complimentary drink in the adjoining bar Waxy's, so we were too late for the executive lounge but really enjoyed the open fire and free bar last time we visited. Really struggle to understand how anyone could complain about this place not being good value for money! Good breakfast too.

Dear Redclive,

Glad you enjoyed your second stay as much as the first. The whisky we use in the decanters is Bells.

My husband and I stayed on the Saturday night and took the shopper package. We had a lovely afternoon shopping as hotel is smack bang in the middle of city centre. Then we had afternoon tea and champagne in the hotel and a fabulous dinner on the Saturday night. The staff were great and the breakfast was fab. We will be returning.

Fantastic hotel, clean and friendly. Breakfast amazing but restraunt in the evening not as good, expensive for what I had and was not allowed to take drinks from exec lounge. Exec lounge well worth the cost, spirits included (gin, vodka, whisky and brandy) as well as wine beer coffee and soft drinks.

Thanks for your review. I'm sorry you thought dinner expensive, I feel that prices are competitive and we offer good value for money. We do not allow guests to take the complimentary drinks from the lounge in to the restaurant, we are not offering an all inclusive product.

We have stayed at the Carlton George many times over the past 10ish years and for very good reasons. The Hotel is central to the city, and is so comfortable, clean and welcoming that there really isn't any good reason to stay elsewhere.

The staff are excellent, the Executive lounge quiet, cosy and relaxing. Breakfast in Glasgow's only rooftop restaurant is good as well - and gives you a better idea of what the weather is like before venturing out.
