“Best hotel in Glasgow”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

I've stayed at this hotel several times and never been disappointed. Excellent rooms, great food and excellent staff. The restaurant, Windows, has great food and is reasonably priced. The club rooms include free entrance to the lounge.

Room Tip: Don't think there are any bad rooms.

Friendly desk staff were helpful. Right around the corner from Buchanan Street, wonderful pedestrian mall, great shops and restaurants. Close to the hop on bus, train station and taxis. Clean room, good housekeeping. Avoid the In house restaurant for breakfast, far too expensive, good pub next door for lunch or diner.

Room Tip: Ask for a street facing room, construction across the back.

Dear Longwinters,

I'm pleased that you liked our hotel and found my team at the front desk to be so friendly and helpful. I am sorry that you felt breakfast was expensive. If you book direct then breakfast is offered at a 50% discount.

No complaints at all with this hotel. Polite and friendly man on reception who checked us in. The room was large and clean. MIni bar, decanters with gin, vodka and whisky, snacks, hot drinks available, dressing gown and slippers and executive lounge access all included in the club price. The executive lounge was great. A help yourself bar and snacks available, it was a lovely area to sit and have a drink. Definately worth the extra price to upgrade as the extras are brilliant. Check out was quick and easy and the again the man on reception was polite and friendly. We already planning a return trip!!!

Room Tip: club room upgrades worth the money

Great location in Glasgow, close to shops and restaurants. Rooms very clean although a little warm while we were there. Buffet breakfast adequate.Staff very friendly and helpful. Will stay here again when in Glasgow.

Room Tip: We had an inside facing room which was a bit hot and stuffy but it was quiet.

We stayed at this hotel on our way up to Scotland after reading the good reviews and we were not disappointed.It is in an excellent position next to the railway station and easy access to the city amenities.The room was very nice and tastefully decorated.The complimentary drinks in the room were of good quality and helped to get our holiday off to a good start! We enjoyed our breakfast in the top floor restaurant with the lovely view over Glasgow. We will certainly stay here again when we are in the area and will recommend to friends and family.

We stayed at the Carlton George at the beginning and end of our visit to Scotland. Since all of our rail travel was out of the Queen Street Station, this provided a perfect location, being almost next door. Our room was tastefully decorated, very comfortable, and, though not huge, larger than I was expecting for a city center hotel. The tartan tiles in the bathroom were a whimsical touch and the free minibar was much appreciated. On our second stay we even had a small balcony. Even though this room faced the street, we were on the 5th floor and not at all bothered by noise. (It might be good to check, however, that there are no loud events scheduled on George Square.) On our earlier visit we had an interior room and this was very quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the back door into Waxy O'Connor's was handy, especially when it rained. Our only complaint was that the room was too hot and we could not figure out how to get it cooler except by opening the window. Nevertheless, we would definitely stay at the Carlton George again.

Thanks for the nice review Annie,


Our city centre location can't be beaten and it is amazingly quiet in the rooms even though we are in the heart of a bustling metropolitan area.

I do hope to be able to welcome you back to the Carlton George soon.

Most beautiful hotel. Visiting again on the 25th June and cannot wait!

I travel on Business and have the executive room with a balcony. Gorgeous facilities, spotless and let's of little touches like the beautiful bedding and curtains, decanters of alcohol (don't drink but the crystal is a lovely touch), the robe, little soaps and HD TV.

If the manager is reading this - I hope I have a nice room tomorrow And cannot wait to come back :)

I've recommended this hotel to our company if any of them visit Glasgow which they often do :)
