Was in for a meal on Friday night with family and have been a few times before so was looking forward to it. However it wasn't a pleasant visit this time around . The waiting staff seemed nice enough but not as helpful as they have previously been as it seemed a bit short staffed and they had to do...

My wife and I booked the Carlton George as an alternative to visiting Edinburgh. We arrived early, around 11:30 and our cases were taken to a holding room and we went for a walk to get our bearings as we're not too familiar with Glasgow. We arrived back around 1:00 and decided to have lunch in the rooftop restaurant. A...

Friendly and helpful staff met us on arrival. Room was an executive room with a nice view onto the main street. Decanters of spirits in the room and free entry into the executive suite where you could have tea/coffee or soft drinks at any time and spirits between 5 and 10.45. Very handy for central Glasgow shopping. Will use the...

If you're looking for a reasonable hotel in a great position then this hotel is a good choice. We had an executive room (room 201) located on the 2nd floor. A good sized room with the bathroom in reasonable condition. The only problem was that our room was above a night club. Not so good as the music & noise...

This hotel is in a great location in Glasgow. Stayed in an executive room which over looked the city. Room was spacious enough. Executive lounge wasn't all that well stocked. Loved the roof top restaurant overlooking the city. Staff were friendly & efficient. Would stay again.

Visited the Windows restaurant for a special occasion and was not disappointed. Excellent steak, very attentive service and an absolutely fantastic view of the sunset over the Glasgow skyline - will definitely be back.

Top floor rooms quite spacious and comfortable. Club lounge not staffed or properly fitted with glasses and utensils. Had 5am fire alarm (laundry service tripped it) and had absolutely no direction from hotel staff whatsoever. Everyone was outside at 5am and no direction, apology, nothing. Very strange that their training is so poor.

The hotel's very central location is incredibly convenient for visiting Glasgow. The hotel decor is distinctive, modern but with echoes of Glasgow's famous designer, Charles Rennie Macintosh. Everything was spotless, very clean throughout the hotel. For many people, that's all that matters. But the devil is in the details... As we continued our belated honeymoon trip through the UK, I...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Based right in the heart of Glasgow, adjacent to Queen Street Station and Buchanan Street and with the airport bus service stopping right at our door, we are the perfect city centre base. We are four star rated, and each of our 64 bedrooms feature a complimentary Minibar and decanted spirits, multi channel LCD TV with Sky Sports 1, 2 and 3, desk, and bathroom with bath and power shower to ensure you have a comfortable and relaxing stay while you are with us. WiFi is free for the duration of your stay, and so are local phone calls. National calls are just 3p per minute. Located on the 7th floor of the hotel, Windows is Glasgow's only rooftop restaurant. Windows Restaurant serves delicious dishes created with local produce with menus changing to reflect what's in season. In fact, the food is only matched by the view over the rooftops of Glasgow! Breakfast is served in Windows in the morning, or can be delivered to your room. Guests can enjoy complimentary soft drinks, snacks and coffee throughout the day, and complimentary wine, beer and selected spirits each evening in the Executive Lounge located on the 7th floor. The lounge also features the Thomson Boardroom, ideal for meetings or private dining for up to 14 people. At the Carlton George Hotel we've worked hard to create a comfortable and informal setting where you can make yourself at home and relax, but still experience fantastic service. ... more   less
