The Carlton George is one of those little gems. Motivated by the positive reviews here, my wife and I stayed there for two nights on a business trip. The staff could not have been more courteous, whether in reception, the maids or in the restaurant. We were invited to dinner by clients and could, therefore, not sample the food. But if the breakfast is anything to go by it must be of a very high quality. The executive rooms are spacious and comfortable. The location is as central as it gets, being barely 200 yards from George Square and next door to Queen Street train station (no worries, you won’t notice inside the hotel).
Of course, this is quite new so everything still looks fresh, which adds significantly to the overall positive impression. As hotels notoriously suffer abuse by clumsy guests, it will have to be seen how all this will hold up in a few years time. No matter, right now this is a definite recommendation. Don’t put up with the sterility of the usual big name hotels. At the Carlton George they are terribly old-fashioned – they still care (which is, I believe, called Customer Service). Go on, treat yourself.
