Reviewed October 11, 2013

Great location in the heart of Glasgow, close to everything you need. Really nice helpful staff.... and a pub downstairs, complimentary drinks in the room, you really don't need to leave. We were there for two nights, could have stayed longer, were very impressed with not just the hotel but the loctation in Glasgow.
Discount on meals in the roof top restaraunt.

Hi Nicola,

Thanks for your review - I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us.

We're lucky to have such a central location in Glasgow - we get a lot of feedback from our guests that they enjoy having loads of shops, attractions, bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.

I'm glad you enjoyed the complimentary Minibar and decanted spirits in your room - we hope to welcome you back soon!

Kind regards,

Duncan Johnston
General Manager

Hi Paul,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review of your stay with us.

We aim to be a convenient base in the heart of the city for our guests, with plenty to see and do nearby, but also somewhere that you can come back to and relax with a complimentary drink after a busy day.

I'm glad that you were impressed with both us and Glasgow itself (it's a fantastic city!), and hope to welcome you back should you return.

Kind regards,

Duncan Johnston
General Manager

We have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions and never have any complaints. The locations excellent for shopping, transport links, sight-seeing, theatres etc. Rooms are beautifully furnished and with an unlimited free mini-bar and access to executive lounge. Well worth a visit.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice but ons at the front have a better view.

We stayed 4 nights at this property (booked in on 6th September, 2013 and prepaid). Although the hotel advertises that they have 64 airconditioned rooms the room we were given was not one of them. We were told that the airconditioning was not working in our room. We asked to be moved and even offered to pay for a better room but all to no avail. Absolutely stifling room overlooking the machinery on which the rest of the hotel was running. Maximum stars to the restaurant - we ate there every night and the food was oustanding. G & P Smith

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.
